Eli Manning and the New York Giants seem adrift.
We got to figure out what our identity is going to be,” said Manning, who completed 18 of 32 passes for 268 yards, zero touchdowns and an interception while also rushing for a score. “That could change each year. You got to see what we’re doing well, what’s working and what’s not working as well and figure out exactly what’s going to be our style.”Patience is not something the Giants can afford, even this early in the season.
Head coach Tom Coughlin was frustrated by the lack of execution on offense, which was 1 of 10 on third down and could not accumulate possessions in the second half resembling the eight-play, 85-yard drive in the second quarter that gave the Giants a 14-7 lead.
And with each week precious in the NFL, Coughlin wanted his offense to quickly discover that identity Manning said it needs.
