Ex-Giants OC: ‘Ludicrous’ To Say Eli Manning Is Declining’
Retired former Giants offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride says he’s shocked that New York Giants’ officials wondered if Eli Manning has started to decline as a quarterback.
While appearing on Pro Football Talk Monday, Gilbride called the thoughts of Manning being washed up “completely ludicrous.”
“There’s been no deterioration of his arm strength, there’s been no lack of preparation and effort,” Gilbride said. “I think he’s going to be fine as soon as they solidify the offensive line … and as soon as they get somebody that’s going to be productive for them as an outside receiver.
“Victor Cruz is terrific, but they need somebody that when they go match up, bump and run (and) go win for them.”
