Ben McAdoo feels like he's still on pace with the Giants offense despite the fact that his passing game hasn't gotten very far off the ground.
On Saturday against the Steelers, Eli Manning dropped back three times but did not complete a pass. He was sacked once. The week before against Buffalo, the first-team offense did not complete a pass of more than 10 yards. Victor Cruz hasn't caught a pass.
That was fine for McAdoo, who went through a debriefing with his quarterback and came away encouraged. He isn't panicking just yet.
"We talked about seeing some things for the first time and how we need to get on the same page moving forward," McAdoo said.
AcAdoo added it's more timing issues, and that everyone's on the same page. He also said the challenge is seeing looks for the first time and reacting. McAdoo liked the reps on Saturday if only because it forced his team to adjust on the fly. Part of the evaluation process still rests on how his players handle these situations.
