Giants coach Tom Coughlin has seen this too many times before. Quarterback Eli Manning staring in the direction of wide receiver Rueben Randle after an incompletion or interception, frozen in his patented Manning Face.
"I thought the worst play of the night was the misconnection between Rueben Randle and Eli," Coughlin said. "I thought, he thought, those kind of things. Everyone in this room is tired of hearing that stuff. There is no place for that."
Randle insists it's nothing that can't be fixed. Unlike last year when the wide receiver estimated 80 percent of Manning's interceptions were caused by miscommunication, this was simply a matter of their timing being off. The mistakes this year have been a result of timing.
Unfortunately, this seems to have occurred far too often this preseason for the Giants' new offense, which continues to struggle.
We're expecting Randle to have a productive season, but the Giants may not get off to a great start offensively, even with a nice matchup against a shaky Lions secondary in Week 1.
