Eli Manning

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.

Quarterback Eli Manning suffered a big gash to the left side of his temple and was forced to leave the New York Giants' game against the New York Jets on Monday night.

Manning left the field at the New Meadowlands Stadium with a towel held to the left side of his head to limit the bleeding. He was accompanied by two Giants trainers.

The team announced that Manning got 12 stitches to close a 3-inch gash to his head. He would not return to the game. He showed no signs of a concussion, the team added, and was sent home by the Giants' medical staff. "I feel fine. I feel normal," Manning said. "The play was my fault. We had a run play with an option to throw a fade that I thought I might try, but Brandon (Jacobs) was coming right up the middle. Sometimes you make a mistake and you get hit in the head. It's preseason, you learn from it."
Manning said he will be back soon, that he didn't really sustain an injury. "I really feel like I could go back out and play right now if I had to," he said. Fans gave him an ovation as he walked off the field with 10:45 left in the second quarter. Manning was hurt on a third-down, play-action pass from the Jets 5-yard line that started out all wrong.

My question is what is different to allow them to run the ball so much more? When you are down big in a game you only run to throw the opponent off guard. The Giants are a good team but I question whether they can just change gears and actually do what they say. If it doesn't work they will do what they did last year and pass.

I don't see Eli's numbers being all that far off. Part of why the numbers are up is because they actually have a couple of decent WR's to throw to. I don't see all that much change this year.
