At the beginning of training camp, running back Rashad Jennings compared getting adjusted to the new Giants offense as looking at a ceiling fan. If you stare long and hard enough, he reasoned, you get to the point where you no longer see a blur but can focus on individual blades.
With the preseason over and the regular-season to begin on Monday night against the Lions, Jennings had a new analogy.
"Now we're all looking at it like we're all in the kitchen and we're chefs," he said after practice on Friday. "As long as we're looking at the same cookbook on the same page and all using the ingredients as we need to, I think we're going to pull something nice out of the oven. That's where this offense is at."
Jennings said he feels like the unit is jelling and he noted that there are still a few days left to study more film and work out some wrinkles before the Giants take the field for real. But as far as knowing the offense, Jenning said he's confident that the blur is gone.
"We found the fan a while back," he said. "Now we're cooking."
