The Giants expect Eli Manning's numbers to go down this season as they concentrate on re-establishing a dominant rushing attack.
The Giants not only struggled to establish a successful ground game last year, they also ended up playing from behind, giving up 30+ points seven times. Eli's 2010 passing attempts will go down at the expense of the rushing attempts, which last season were the Giants' lowest since 2004. Expect more vertical passes to Hakeem Nicks, but considerably fewer pass attempts as a whole. Rotoworld's Draft Guide does not project Manning to finish as a QB1.
They really did HAVE to throw more last year. Great Wr's, almost too much offense to go around.
