The Giants want Eli Manning to complete 70 percent of his passes this season.

It's a barrier that's been breached only seven times in league history, most recently by Alex Smith in 2012 (who was benched). It's not even a vaguely realistic goal for a career 58.5 percent passer (an abysmal 57.5 in 2013), but shows just how serious the G-Men are about remaking their passing attack. Gone are long-developing downfield shots, and in are high-percentage quick passes.

The Giants' offense "wants to go fast" this season.

Receiver Jerrel Jernigan says the G-Men are "pushing for 70 or more plays per game." That's a number only two teams, the Broncos and Patriots, reached last season. The Giants averaged just 61.75, good for sixth-to-last in the league. "I'm still waiting for them to call up a huddle in practice," DE Mathias Kiwanuka said Thursday. "The intention of this offense is to cause chaos." The more plays, the better for Eli Manning and his intriguing receiver corps in fantasy.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports there's "so much emphasis" on getting Eli Manning to get rid of the ball earlier this season.

Eli Manning had the highest average pass distance among NFL quarterbacks in 2013, at 9.49 yards from the line of scrimmage.

Combine ex-OC Kevin Gilbride's vertical scheme with the Giants' injury-ravaged, swinging-gate offensive line, and the result was Eli's career-worst season, with career highs in picks (27) and sacks taken (39). New OC Ben McAdoo is installing a shortened, quicker-hitting attack in an effort to rejuvenate Eli. The Giants likely hope Manning can have a Riversian bounce-back year.

Co-owner John Mara told the New York Post the Giants have had no contract extension talks with Eli Manning.

Manning, 33, is currently signed through 2015 at base salaries of $15.15 million this year, and $17 million next year. ESPN's Dan Graziano reported in April that the Giants are concerned Eli has entered his decline phase after leading the NFL in interceptions (27) last season. "We haven't even really discussed that yet," Mara said of a new deal. "We'll discuss that at the appropriate time. Obviously it's our hope that he finish his career as a Giant."

Eli Manning said he's "reenergized" in new OC Ben McAdoo's offense.

Manning regressed in ex-Giants OC Kevin Gilbride's offense last year, leaving members of the front office concerned over whether he's in his decline stage. The Giants will be more of a quick-hitting passing attack under McAdoo, which should play to his strengths. An improved offensive line and the presence of rookie Odell Beckham also give Manning a better supporting cast. Manning is signed through 2015, but will be in line for an extension next offseason if he bounces back.

The Giants are installing a "quick-hitting passing attack that is predicated on timing" under new OC Ben McAdoo.

Per beat writer Jordan Raanan, the biggest benefit may be simplification of route concepts for players like Rueben Randle, while the offensive line isn't asked to hold blocks as long. The Chargers took a similar approach with Philip Rivers last year, and it paid off handsomely en route to NFL Comeback Player of the Year honors. It remains to be seen whether Eli Manning possesses the short to intermediate accuracy to make a Rivers-like late-career leap.

Eli Manning (ankle) said he's 100 percent and could play in a game if he needed to.

"Yeah, 100%, yeah," Manning said. "The ankle, I don't think about it, don't notice it. I go about practice and do everything and they're not even worried about it. So, it hasn't been an issue. No question I could play tomorrow." Manning participated fully in OTAs and should do the same at mandatory minicamp. As for the new offense, Manning admits "there's still some learning curve."
