How Much Is Kevin Gilbride to Blame?

It seems to be a common theme where New York Giants fans annually turn any offensive blame to coordinator Kevin Gilbride.

The 62-year old is in his 6th season with the Giants and the worst statistical year that 2x Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning has had.

While the Giants rushing attack averaged nearly 7 yards per carry last weekend against the Cowboys, there was critique that Gilbride should have not relied on Manning’s inconsistent arm towards the end of the game but more on Andre Brown‘s legs.

The Giants ran the ball 30 times and threw 32 times. It’s a much more even attack than in years past, obviously taking in consideration the the Manning-led offense has the 4th worst turnover ratio in the NFL.

How much is the play-calling to blame when it comes to the offensive struggles? Former Giants wide receiver Amani Toomer joinedArmen Williamsthis week:

“Kevin Gilbride’s not telling the wide receivers to run the wrong routes,” said Toomer. “Kevin Gilbride’s not telling Eli Manning to throw picks.

“Kevin Gilbride’s offense has been successful everywhere he goes. It’s never been a problem.”

In a season that started 0-6 and is now 4-7, there’s no doubt that there will have to be some kind of changes next year. Whether or not Gilbride will be one of the faces out the door or if the Giants will stick to letting go Hakeem Nicks and possibly some other players is still to be seen.
