Giants’ Eli Manning “Excited” To Work With Pat Shurmur

Published

New York Giants veteran quarterback Eli Manning is stoked about new page in his Giants career after a tough season that saw his benching and the firing of head coach Ben McAdoo.

However, Manning expressed his desire to remain with the team and is excited to work with McAdoo’s replacement, Pat Shurmur.

“[I’m] just excited to see how he calls games, how he looks at defenses, how he wants to pick them apart and just seeing his insight to that and learn from it,” Manning said, according to John Healy of the New York Daily News.

“So we can see things the same way, have great communication and figure out how to score some points.”

Manning knows Shurmur’s son, Kyle, who attended the Manning Passing Academy.

“We spoke with him a little bit there,” Manning said. “So I know a little bit about him. I know a little bit about his past when he was in Philadelphia and obviously the Browns and obviously this season with the Vikings and what he was able to do as offensive coordinator. So I’m excited about that and excited to get back to work with him and see how we can improve this team.”

There won’t be any efforts to push Manning out the door like there were last season under McAdoo as Shurmur sees a long future with Manning at the helm for the Giants.

Jacksonvile Jaguars veteran defensive lineman Calais Campbell came away from Sunday’s game against the New York Giants victorious, but also impressed by the play or Giants’ rookie running back Saquon Barkley.

Campbell believes that Barkley will be a “special” player.

“I mean, I knew right away,” Campbell said, according to NJ.com. “The first run and the first couple times I tackled him, I said; ‘this kid has something.’ … Obviously, you see it on tape. But we didn’t get to watch a lot of tape on him. It’s his college tape. Coming into the NFL against a team like ours, and making some of the plays he made, that kid’s going to be special.”

Campbell believes that if the running back can stay healthy, Barkley “might one day be a Hall of Famer”.
