During an interview with SiriusXM NFL Radio via the Newark Star-Ledger, former Giants offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride was pretty open about this season and blamed the offensive line for quarterback Eli Manning’s down year.
“We had been concerned about depth in the offensive line for a while now.” He added that the problems along the offensive line “made it impossible for (Eli Manning) to function. … You give him help and he’s proven he can win a championship.”
Gilbride is completely right. No NFL quarterback can be effective with a line that can’t pass block.
