Eli Manning said he sees signs the Giants’ offense is getting better. Despite the dismal results, Victor Cruz said, “I’m not concerned’’ and that “there were definitely some positive things out there’’ as he evaluated the most recent preseason stinker.

Tom Coughlin said something quite different Sunday when questioned whether he believes the players have the same sense of urgency he does to get this shabby offense fixed before the Sept. 8 season opener.

“They better,’’ Coughlin said, and then issued a warning about possibly increasing the playing time for his starters in the final preseason game against the Patriots.

“It’s not written in stone about what you do in the last preseason game either,’’ Coughlin said. “The idea is to come out of this having your team prepared throughout the course of these games so that when you head into the regular season you’re ready to go. We still got some work to do along those lines.’’

Yeah, the Giants have some work to do. They face the Jets on Friday night in what figured to be the last real test for the starters, as the final preseason game is usually a quick cameo for the first-teamers before escaping to the safety of the sideline. But Coughlin hasn’t seen nearly enough, especially from what has been a rag-tag new offense put together by first-year coordinator Ben McAdoo. And if he has to force-feed the results with extra playing time for Manning and Co. in the last preseason game, so be it.

Everyone knew the new West Coast offense would take time to hum with precision, but no one involved in the process thought after all the work in the spring, an entire training camp and three preseason games the results would be so alarmingly awful.
