This is a thread to put interesting stats. I keep losing them in the regular thread. So this way stuff doesn't get lost. So post stats or interesting tid bits in here.

NFL.com QB rankings article.


Here are some stats posted on BBI.

109 -- Passing attempts of longer than 20 yards by Eli Manning in 2011, 20 more than the next quarterback in the deep-ball rankings.

88.5 -- Percentage of drop-backs on which Eli Manning was pressured but avoided being sacked, the best escape rate in the league (minimum: 100 pressures).

220 -- League-high number of plays on which Giants linemen allowed such pressure, 15 more than any other team.

All of that gives you even more info on how good Manning was last season, and how bad the offensive line was. It makes the 4,933 yards passing and all of those comebacks seem even more amazing..

Giants defense sets new franchise mark for yards allowed in 2012



The Giants defense set a new franchise record in 2012 -- but not the kind of record teams like to set.

The Giants' 6,134 yards allowed this season, and 383.4 yards allowed per game, are new highs for the franchise. The Giants have only given up more than 6,000 yards twice in their history: in 2011 and 2012, under defensive coordinator Perry Fewell. Last year's total was 6,022, but the Giants went on to win Super Bowl XLVI with strong defense down the stretch.

The 2012 defense finished 31st in the NFL rankings, the first time the Giants have ranked next-to-last in defense since 1966. Big plays were their Achilles heel: The 29 passes of at least 30 yards they allowed led the NFL this year.

The Giants were able to tighten up in scoring range. They finished 12th in the league in scoring defense, and only allowed touchdowns on 23 of their opponents' 50 trips to the red zone, the sixth-stingiest rate in the league. They also finished fourth in the league with 35 takeaways and a plus-14 turnover differential, both improvements from 2011.

But the big plays allowed and defensive inconsistency were a troubling trend through their 9-7 season. Coach Tom Coughlin said at his season-ending press conference that there would be no changes to his coaching staff and that Fewell was still his defensive coordinator. Coughlin said the defensive players would agree with Fewell's assessment that they did not make plays.

Other notable statistics from the 2012 season, via the Giants:

++ The Giants scored 429 points, the franchise's second-highest total, behind the 1963 Giants' 448 points. This was the fifth time in team history the Giants have topped 400 points. Four have come under Coughlin, and three with Kevin Gilbride as the offensive coordinator.

++ QB Eli Manning's career completion percentage is now 58.60, moving him into first place on the Giants’ all-time list among quarterbacks with at least 1,000 attempts.

++ RB/KR David Wilson set a new mark for Giants rookies with 1,925 all-purpose yards. That total was the most by any Giants player since Tiki Barber's 2,127 in 2006. And how about this: Tampa Bay RB Doug Martin, selected one slot before Wilson, bested him by just one yard. Martin led all NFL rookies with 1,926 total yards this season.

++ The Giants were the only team this season to have three different players with a 100-yard rushing game: Ahmad Bradshaw (four times), Andre Brown (once) and Wilson (once).

++ Victor Cruz’s 86 receptions were the second-highest total in team history. Steve Smith had 107 catches in 2009.

++ Giants punted 58 times, fewest in team history for a 16-game season, and also fewest for a non-strike season since punting 47 times in a 14-game season in 1972.

++ S Stevie Brown not only recorded the most interceptions by a Giant in 44 years, with eight. But he also had five interception returns of more than 40 yards, the highest total in the NFL since Ravens S Ed Reed's five in 2004.

++ Steve Weatherford’s gross punting average of 47.5 yards was the highest single-season average by a Giants punter with at least 35 kicks. He broke Don Chandler's previous mark of 46.6 yards, set in 1959.

++ The Giants’ 33 field goals were the fourth-highest total in franchise history. The team kicked 35 field goals in 1983, 2005 and 2008.

++ And we'll end with the weirdest franchise record: The Giants set a new mark with 37 first downs by penalty. The previous high was 36, set in 1997.

Giants Restructure Player Personnel Department
Family calls Sunderland back home; Reese, Abrams promoted.
by Michael Eisen, Giants.com

May 1, 2002
East Rutherford, N.J. - Giants General Manager Ernie Accorsi today announced a restructuring of several positions in the team's front office.


The Giants new Asst. GM Kevin Abrams (middle) is pictured with GM Ernie Accorsi (left) and Giants Exec. VP John Mara (right). At his request, Marv Sunderland has been re-assigned from Director of Player Personnel to special assignments scout. That will enable him to be based in the western part of the country, where he will be closer to his elderly mother, with whom he wants to spend more time.
Jerry Reese is being promoted from Assistant Director of Pro Personnel to replace Sunderland as the Director of College Player Personnel.

Kevin Abrams is being promoted from Salary Cap Analyst to Assistant General Manager. He replaces Rick Donohue, who is retiring effective June 1.

Dave Gettleman remains as Director of Pro Personnel and he and Reese will be equals in the front office hierarchy. The Giants will conduct a search for Reese's successor as Gettleman's assistant.

"This restructuring of the player personnel department streamlines the organization as we head into the future," Accorsi said. "All four individuals are in strategic positions and are very capable and valuable people. I think this puts all of these departments in excellent hands for future years."

The Giants recently completed their fourth draft with Sunderland at the head of the personnel department. Of the 23 players selected in the first three drafts under his watch, 16 are still with the Giants and two more are on the rosters of other teams.

"Marv wanted to return to the west and continue in scouting," Accorsi said. "I can understand his decision fully. I made a similar decision when I left Cleveland in 1992. I just wanted to come home to the east and be close to an ailing mother. He has the same situation.
"Marv is one of the best people I have ever worked with. He's a solid football man with integrity and a terrific work ethic." Said Sunderland, "I requested this move because it's the right thing for me and my family at this time. I am still going to scout, which is my first love. This gives me the chance to be based closer to my mother and our family. "The two thoughts that are foremost in my mind right now is how grateful I am to have had the opportunity to be the director of player personnel for Mr. Mara and Mr. Tisch and a great organization like the Giants, and also the working relationship and friendship that Ernie, Jim and I have had over the last four years. The communication and input we shared in the selection process was special."

Reese has been the Assistant Director of Pro Personnel since the Spring of 1999 when Gettleman succeeded Tim Rooney as the head of the department. Abrams joined the Giants organization that July.

"I think Jerry Reese has a tremendous future in the National Football League…The promotion of Kevin Abrams signifies the vital importance of cap management in our business now."
- GM Ernie Accorsi

"I think Jerry Reese has a tremendous future in the National Football League," Accorsi said. "His rise has been rapid and he has deserved every promotion he's received. And, of course, Dave Gettleman is as good as anyone in this league in his position. The promotion of Kevin Abrams signifies the vital importance of cap management in our business now. His expertise has been a valuable addition to the Giants." Said Reese, "First of all, I'm grateful for the opportunity and very humbled by Ernie's and upper management's confidence in my ability to elevate me to this position. We have a solid group of veteran scouts and a talented group of young scouts that should make the transition pretty smooth."

Donohue, a member of the Giants organization since 1983, has been Assistant General Manager since 1998 when Accorsi succeeded the late George Young as General Manager. "Rick Donohue has been a scout and executive with the Giants for a long time," Accorsi said. "He will be missed. Rick was an excellent partner and teammate."

Sunderland was appointed Director of Player Personnel on May 7, 1998 following the move of Tom Boisture to Vice President of Player Personnel. He has been in charge of overseeing all aspects of college scouting, including the primary responsibility of organizing the Giants drafts.
Sunderland, 57, recently completed his 25th season in the NFL. Prior to joining the Giants, Sunderland worked in the scouting departments of the New England Patriots and the New York Jets. He joined the NFL in 1976 as a personnel assistant for the Patriots, where he learned the evaluation system that is the foundation for the system used today by the Giants. Sunderland moved to the Jets organization as a talent scout in 1979 and served there until taking the Giants post. Prior to joining the NFL, Sunderland served as an assistant coach at North Dakota State from 1970 until 1975. North Dakota State won five conference titles during his tenure and finished undefeated in 1970.

Reese joined the Giants scouting department on Dec. 15, 1994 after a successful playing and coaching career at the University of Tennessee at Martin. During his college playing career (1981-1984), Reese was honored as a two-time All-Gulf South Conference pick. He is among the leaders on UT-Martin's career list in interceptions and still holds several punt return records. Following his playing career, Reese served as a student assistant for one year and as a graduate assistant for two seasons before becoming a full-time coach of the secondary from 1988 through 1993. He moved to coaching the receivers and assumed the assistant head coach title in January of 1993.

Abrams' responsibilities have included salary cap management and forecasting, contract negotiations and coordinating the Giants' compliance with the NFL's Collective Bargaining Agreement. He came to the Giants from the NFL Management Council, where he helped to monitor the league-wide salary cap and analyzed all new player contracts with respect to the rules and regulations of the Collective Bargaining Agreement.
Donohue spent four seasons as assistant director of player personnel after spending 10 years as a scout. He joined the Giants in August, 1983 after coaching on both the collegiate and high school levels. A native of the Bronx, Donohue is a graduate of Dewitt Clinton High School and the University of Dayton.

THIS MESS IS TEAM EFFORT
BY BARRY MEISEL
Wednesday, September 25th 1996, 2:00AM
LIKE MOST NFL personnel directors, Tom Boisture has a strong ego and firm convictions. Like GM George Young, the man who hired him in 1980, Boisture's dogmatic beliefs continue to be blessed by a very conservative organization that has been dragged into the 1990s. Like Young, Boisture bears significant responsibility for the Giants' rapid decline this decade. Unlike Young, this headstrong and irascible Detroit native who butted heads for years with Bill Parcells and has butted heads with Dan Reeves last week agreed to comment on his role in the team's current predicament. Not that Boisture totally accepted blame.
"Hey, everybody's to blame," he said on Friday. "We've got a lot of players that are playing on other teams, but that doesn't necessarily mean they're any better than what we've got. If I had any ideas (as to why the Giants have fallen so far), I'd tell Dan. Or I'd tell George, or somebody. I don't have any idea."

Boisture, 65, was one of Young's most significant hires. Under Boisture's direction, the Giants drafted and stockpiled a wealth of talent in the '80s, enough to win Super Bowls in 1986 and 1990. They made the playoffs six times in his first 11 years on the job, but have reached the postseason only once in the five seasons since Super Bowl XXV. The Giants' steady decline in the '90s can be traced directly to the players they've lost to age and retirement, free agency and poor drafts. When Boisture was asked about his three No. 1 draft picks from 1991-93, FB Jarrod Bunch, TE Derek Brown and QB Dave Brown, he lukewarmly defended the first two and insisted that Brown's fate is still to be determined. "Bunch, he played Dan's first year, we got into the playoffs, and then he got hurt," Boisture said. "He was just never healthy after Dan's first year. I don't think he was in the league the next year, was he?" No. Bunch was released prior to the '94 season, picked up by the Raiders, and quickly cut. He's out of football. Derek Brown was a bust as a Giant, too. He was claimed by Jacksonville in the expansion draft, but missed all of last year with a lacerated spleen. He starts for the Jaguars now and is primarily a blocker who has caught three balls in four games.

"We just didn't think he was good enough," said Boisture, who believes it takes three years before a draft crop can be assessed adequately. "He wasn't as good as the two guys we had, I didn't think. And Dave, Dave is struggling right now. So is everybody else. If Dave can make a couple of big plays, I think that will boost his confidence. Now a quarterback's a little different. It takes longer (than three years), and it has to do with the kind of team he's surrounded by. A quarterback can't do it himself."
Boisture has one or two years to go on his current contract. His assistant, Rick Donohue, eventually is going to succeed him. Donohue, a Bronx native, came to work on Boisture's staff as a scout in 1983 and was promoted to his current job three years ago.

Boisture sounded a tad defensive when asked about his recent track record. Especially when he discussed the accumulation of offensive players over the last few years.
"We've always tried to get big offensive linemen and big running backs," he said. "So we can run the football. And we've finally got some receivers, although you can't prove anything by what we've shown so far. The whole team, we haven't played well. I think the players have talent, and have put a lot into winning games."
Does he think he has provided Reeves enough talent to win?
"You can think all you want," Boisture replied. "The bottom line is, if you don't win, something's wrong. If you can put your finger on it, talk to George. Maybe he'll give you a bonus."

Nice article NYG

I forgot that Reese was originally Gettleman's assistant before 2002

I will admit I hated our team management during the 90s, George Young didn't handle the introduction of free agency very well.

http://blog.northjersey.com/giants/399/miscommunication-marks-the-spot-in-secondary/

Even though Dez Bryant was wide open on what was clearly an embarrassing 50-yard touchdown reception for a beleaguered secondary Sunday night, there was very little accountability taken by two of the players in coverage, Antrel Rolle and Corey Webster.
Rolle says he was in the right spot. Webster insisted Thursday he was in the right spot, too.
Defensive coordinator Perry Fewell then went on to tell reporters Thursday not only were Rolle and Webster wrong, but they weren’t alone.
“We didn’t execute the call, so nobody was in the right spot,” Fewell said. “All 11 defenders were responsible to be in certain spots, and we were not in the right spots.”
Asked how both players could believe they were in the right spot on the play and still what happened happened, Webster said: “See, now you’ve got another question. He said it, I said it. I don’t have all the answers. I mean, I try to answer the questions as best as possible.”
For the third consecutive week, the Giants allowed the opposing quarterback to throw four touchdowns. They are the first team to allow that to happen in 25 years.
“I guess you can say, ‘Yeah, you can try to simplify things,’” Fewell said. “But sometimes you try to get specific, and you try to give some different things. The offense can confuse you at times, and that’s what happened. I think that’s more or less a function of Dallas doing a good job and we didn’t do a good job of recognizing.” - See more at: http://blog.northjersey.com/giants/399/miscommunication-marks-the-spot-in-secondary/#sthash.5AQRuzfQ.dpuf





http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2011/12/giants-redskins_game_review_qu.html

Defensive coordinator Perry Fewell. After the game, I was chatting with the honorable Vinny DiTrani, The Record’s NFL guru who is now in semi-retirement and only covers home games. We were talking about how much zone Fewell has played of late. My point was I had a feeling Fewell would shy away from man coverage after the debacle in New Orleans. I had recommended ahead of time playing a lot of man that night and that’s what Fewell did. The Saints won. It happens. But Fewell has gone back to a zone-heavy scheme with a bunch of guys better served to play man. You can see by the way they don’t react to receivers running through their zone it’s not the strength of their game. This team has to go down playing aggressive, tight man coverage.

Former Giants GM Ernie Accorsi’s scouting report of Manning back in college at Ole Miss:

Wears left knee brace… During pregame warmup, didn't look like he had a rocket arm… As game progressed, I saw excellent arm strength under pressure and the ability to get velocity on the ball on most throws. Good deep ball range. Good touch. Good vision and poise.

Sees the field… In shotgun on most plays and his only running option is a draw… his offensive line is poor. Red-shirt freshman left tackle. Eli doesn't trust his protection. Can't. No way he can take any form of a deep drop and look downfield. With no running game (10 yards rushing the first half) and no real top receivers, he's stuck with the three-step drops and waiting til the last second to see if a receiver can get free. No tight end either. No flaring back. So he's taking some big hits. Taking them well. Carried an overmatched team entirely on his shoulders. I imagine, except for Vanderbilt, his team is overmatched in every SEC game… He's big, never gets rattled. Rallied his team from a 14-3 halftime deficit basically all by himself. Led them on two successive third quarter drives to go ahead, 17-16. The first touchdown, a 40-yard streak down the left sideline, he dropped the ball over the receiver's right shoulder. Called the next touchdown pass himself, checking off to a 12-yard slant… Makes a lot of decisions on play calls at the line of scrimmage, but they ask too much of him. They don't just let him play. This is a guy you should just let play… When he's inaccurate, he's usually high, but rarely off target to either side… Plays smart and with complete confidence. Doesn't scold his teammates, but lets them know when they line up wrong or run the wrong pattern… Threw three interceptions. Two were his fault. Trying to force something both times. He could have run on one of them, a fourth down play. He has a lot to learn.

Summary: I think he's the complete package. He's not going to be a fast runner, but a little like Joe Montana, he has enough athletic ability to get out of trouble. Remember how Archie ran? In that department, Eli doesn't have the best genes, although I never timed mom Olivia in the 40. But he has a feel for the pocket.

Feels the rush.

Throws the ball, takes the hit, gets right back up… Has courage and poise. In my opinion, most of all, he has that quality you can't define. Call it magic…Peyton had much better talent around him at Tennessee. But I honestly give this guy a chance to be better than his brother. Eli doesn't get much help from the coaching staff. If he comes out early, we should move up to take him. These guys are rare, you know.

He is the 32nd most prolific passer in NFL history. Already. Manning has thrown for 31,977 yards. If he matches last season with nearly 4,000 yards, he’ll shoot into the top 20, into the neighborhood of a Hall of Famer like former Buffalo Bills quarterback Jim Kelly.

Even a modest projection puts him on a track for 50,000 yards before he is done, a total only four players – Brett Favre, Dan Marino, John Elway and his brother – have surpassed (two more – Tom Brady and Drew Brees – are locks, and in this pass-happy era of pro football, more are certain to follow).

Manning is also 24th in touchdown passes all-time, with 215. He could pass Steve Young, Jim Kelly and Len Dawson this season. All of them are enshrined in Canton.

Gilbride "We made the gamble that William Beatty was the guy at LT. There's no question he has the physical talent but toughness is the key"

Some other stuff he said:

Quote:
@alexmarvez: Kevin Gilbride said @Giants offensive line injuries made it "impossible" for Eli Manning "to function" in 2013. (CONT)

@alexmarvez: Gilbride said @GIants o-line problems forced more 3-step drops & play-action passes rather than 5- to 7-step drops where Manning excels

@alexmarvez: Gilbride also said @GIants need outside WRs to perform better. Teams were too keyed in on Victor Cruz. "Bell-cow" RB needed as well

@alexmarvez: Gilbride said there is "no question" the @Giants will "bring in some people" at the tight end position i.e. a veteran signing.

@alexmarvez: Gilbride said Brandon Myers would be ideal No. 2 TE but @Giants ideally need bigger, faster player at position

Gilbride on what @Giants need to improve "@TeamVic had a good year but they need to improve the WR's on the outside and a bell cow RB"


@RVacchianoNYDN: Gilbride reiterated it was his decision to retire, citing family. "Sometimes it reaches a point where you have to say 'Enough is enough.'"

@RVacchianoNYDN: Gilbride said "We had been concerned about the depth in the O-line for a while now" and cited that as main reason for offensive woes.

@RVacchianoNYDN: Gilbride said the O-line "made it impossible for our qb to function ... You give him help and he's proven he can win a championship."

@RVacchianoNYDN: Gilbride also praised Victor Cruz, but said "It became readily apparent to defenses we weren’t playing well on the outside positions." #NYG

It's a lot less dependent on Eli reading my body language and much more about him just reading the coverage and finding the guy who's open."

Geoff Schwartz says so far new offense terminology is the same as it would be for a West Coast system.

Will Beatty is running, says he's ahead of schedule, but hesitant to put any kind of timetable on return. Hopeful for Opening Day #NYG

LT Will Beatty (leg, knee) said he's "past the doctor's expectations" in his rehab, but still can't say if he'll be ready by Opening Day.

Eli Manning, Giants envision their offense being similar to the Packers

http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2014/04/eli_manning_giants_envision_their_offense_being_si milar_to_the_packers.html

Once the Giants receivers learn the new verbiage, the offense in general should be easier to execute. Gone are the complicated route-reads the wide receivers were tasked with under Gilbride. In are the defined routes of McAdoo and his West Coast-style offense.

“As far as my route-running was concerned in the slot position, a lot of my routes were determined by what the secondary was doing, what type of coverage they were in. That would dictate my route,” Cruz said. “As far as this offense is concerned, it’s a lot more of your route is your route, and you can dictate that off your coverage and know what you have and Eli can find you within those different holes. Now it’s a lot less dependent on what my body language is.”

That should help the Giants cut down on the mistakes. It should help Manning cut down on the interceptions.

And make no mistake, this is no longer Tom Coughlin/Kevin Gilbride’s old-school offense.

“This is Coach McAdoo’s offense,” Manning said.

And it comes with a significant West Coast flair.




Giants' new offense draws early excitement from Cruz, Eli

This is Coach McAdoo's offense and I'm here to learn it."
One thing the receivers seem excited by is the simplification of their routes. Under former offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride, the receivers indicated their routes to Manning based on their body language. Cruz and Rueben Randle said this new system will be more straight-forward. Randle said there will be fewer opportunities for miscommunication.



Eli Manning plans on using new offense to ‘reinvent’ himself

“I think it’s going to be even easier for us to connect, easier for us to be on the same page,” Cruz said. “A lot of my routes were determined against what type of coverage they were in, and they would dictate my route. As far as this offense is concerned, it’s a lot more your route is your route and you can dictate that off your coverage and you know what you have, and Eli can find you within those different holes. So now it’s a lot less dependent on what my body language is and Eli reading that, it’s more so just him reading the coverage, and finding me in those open holes.”
By all accounts, McAdoo is an impressive mind.
“I think it’ll be similar to what they did in Green Bay,” Manning said. “I’ve never been in a West Coast offense, so I don’t know if this is exactly West Coast or a form of it or not anything at all like it. Every offense had its own little style, it’s own uniqueness that makes it work.”

Pat Traina report.


Currently, Henry Hynoski seems to be working with the starters, but with the running backs being targeted for check downs and such, there really hasn’t been much for the fullbacks to do yet other than catch a ball or two out of the backfield. And so far, both Hynoski and Conner have looked good in this regard, not dropping any passes.


There was definitely an emphasis placed on screens in this practice and most seemed to be successful. However, on one play, running back Andre Williams seemed to fight the ball. He seems to trap the ball against his body instead of extending his arms to reel in the pass. If he doesn’t fix that technique flaw, he’s going to have a lot of drops.

"I can't complain about it," Jernigan eventually said. "There are not that many reads so you can go out and play faster and get everything going. You don't have to think as much."

Under former offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride, who retired after the season, the Giants' wide receivers were regularly asked to determine their routes based on the what the defense was doing. It created more than a little confusion, especially last season when quarterback Eli Manning finished with 27 interceptions and their was admittedly a disconnect with his receivers.

2007: Scored 373 points (23.3/g), 14th of 32 in the NFL. Allowed 351 points (21.9/g), 17th.

So the Giants offense was categorically better than the defense in 2007.

2011: Scored 394 points (24.6/g), 9th of 32 in the NFL. Allowed 400 points (25.0/g), 25th.

(-10.9 Pass, -2.9 Rush, 32.1 Pass Block, 42.0 Run Block, 1.3 Penalty)

Defense 70.2 (6th)
(20.9 Run Def, 44.1 Pass Rush, 2.0 Pass Cov, 3.2 Penalty)

Special Teams -5.6 (13th)


2011

Offense -36.7 (22nd)

I have done some analysis on the ProFootballFocus stats of the Giants from 2007 to 2011 with some interesting analysis.

2011 is interesting, we had the best pass rating, yet the worst pass block -106.6 and run block ratings -0.7. The oline ratings in 2013 were actually better (-72.0 pass block and 9.3 run block) though both were well below the average.

The average PFF ratings for 2007-13 are

Offense 50.6 (average rank 11.4)
(12.6 Pass, -2.9 Rush, -17.9 Pass Block, 57.7 Run Block, 1.1 Penalty)

Defense 10.5 (average rank 13.4)
(-3.8 Run Def, 19.5 Pass Rush, -4.9 Pass Cov, -1.8 Penalty)

Special Teams 4.4 (average rank 21.9)


The offensive line has been the strength of the team, particularly with run blocking in 2011 we were -0.7 and 2013 +9.3, all the others were between +42.0 and +123.8. The average PFF rating over this period for run blocking is 57.8.


there are positive signs

2013 had the best run defence of the era with 22.7 and second best pass coverage with 10.6

we can turn around units quickly under Coughlin:
offence improved from -36.7 in 2011 to 125.2 in 2012
defence improved from -71.3 in 2009 to 74.2 in 2010
special teams improved from -21.4 in 2010 to 22.2 in 2011
