The latest news to emerge involves Giants players going to an ESPN reporter — unsolicited — to rip their head coach. Here’s what Josina Anderson had to say.
There was a Giants players, who wishes to remain anonymous, who reached out to me and said this unsolicited at the time, this being last week. Saying:
‘McAdoo has lost this team. He’s got us going 80% on Saturdays before we get on a plane to to play a game. It’s wild. Changed our off day. He’s dishing out fines like crazy. Suspended two of our stars when we need them the most. Throws us under the bus all the time. He’s run us into the ground and people wonder why we’ve been getting got.’
And I also heard from another Giants player, unsolicited, that:
‘Guys are giving up on the season and nothing’s being done. Guys just don’t care anymore.’
A lot of that sounds very Chip Kelly-ish. I think it’s safe to say McAdoo lacks “emotional intelligence.”
The Giants — who were coming off their bye — got the crap beat of them in their own stadium on Sunday when they lost to the Los Angeles Rams by a score of 51 to 17. They fell to 1-7 on the season with the loss.
Now the G-Men are set to travel out west to play the winless San Francisco 49ers. It’d be incredibly embarrassing if New York lost to a team that’s started out 0-9 this year.
The bad news for the Giants is that a win would only hurt their draft positioning. The Giants have already reportedly begun to start “looking closely” at quarterback prospects in the 2018 NFL Draft.
After going 11-5 in 2016, the 2017 season has been an awful one for the Giants. It’s really hard to see how McAdoo keeps his job after this season. Heck, he might even get canned during the year at this rate.
