Giants Run/Pass Ratio from 06 and Looking at 07

Eli looks for Answers

NFLGridironGab has posted the last season ratio run to pass for each team, as well as the teams outlook for 2007. Here is a look at the Giants from 06 and what to expect for 07.

New York Giants 53% Pass to 47% Run

2006: The New York Giants season was about as baffling as the Portland Trailblazers’ decision to choose Center Sam Bowie over Mike Jordan in the 1984 NBA Draft. With RB Tiki Barber leading the rushing attack, New York ran for close to five yards a carry, at 135 yards a game. So why didn’t they utilize their superstar Barber more often?

2007: With Barber retiring, expect significant changes with New York’s offense. Barber made the Giants offensive line look like Joe Bugel’s “hogs” back in the day with Washington. They replaced him with Ruben Droughns and will run a steady diet of RB Brandon Jacobs. It’s a good goaline/short yardage package, but nothing more than that. Eli Manning will have to get his arm locked, loaded, and ready for this upcoming year, as he looks to throw more than New York Yankee’s closer Mariano Rivera does in a full 162-game season. Rest that right arm and ice after each game Eli.
