Kevin Gilbride: Giants offensive transition 'a gamble'

Yes, Kevin Gilbride has thoughts on the new offense. Some encouraging, some maybe not so much.

Like it or not, New York Giants fans, former Giants offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride does television work now. As such he will often be asked for his thoughts on Eli Manning and his former team's new offense. Such was the case during a recent interview on SNY.

Gilbride said he does believe the offense will be better during the regular season that it was in five preseason contests.

"I do think once they step back, which they have done now, they've paired it away and they're becoming much more specific in what they are going to do against a specific opponent ... I think you're going to see a much better performance," Gilbride said.

Gilbride did not want to comment on whether or not the new offense run by Ben McAdoo suited quarterback Eli Manning.

"I'm not going to touch that with a 10-foot pole. I'm too much involved in that," Gilbride said. "The transition is a gamble, there's no question about it. Time will tell, but it is a difficult thing."
