There’s been a lot of drama in New York this season in the New York Giants facility. There’s a lot of fans that want McAdoo out of New York in the blink of an eye. And he’s not getting any support from his players or coaches either. Two anonymous Giants players had a lot to say about their HC. The comments below were made before their blowout 51-17 loss to the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday.
“McAdoo has lost this team,” one player told Anderson. “He’s got us going 80 percent on Saturdays before we get on a plane 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 ran us into the ground and people wonder why we’ve been getting got.” “Guys are giving up on the season and nothing’s being done. Guys just don’t care anymore,” the second player said.
With that being said, there’s some players that are sticking up for their HC, even when he’s on the hot seat already. Like star S Landon Collins.
“McAdoo has been leading the same way he led last year. So, I don’t knock the way he has been doing things,” safety Landon Collins said, per ESPN. “Fining people like crazy? If you don’t follow the rules, you get in trouble because you got to pay the consequences. I wouldn’t say he lost the team. I have the utmost respect for him. He’s been doing a great job. Just trying to figure it out like we all are.
It’s pretty obvious he’s lost control of the locker room. Players don’t trust him or want to play for him anymore. Half of his players are getting furious with him as well. Pro Bowl CB Dominique Rogers-Cromartie stormed out of the facility a couple weeks ago ultimately prompting his suspension. CB Janoris Jenkins was also suspended 1 game by the team didn’t show up on time to the team following their bye week and didn’t notify the club until 24 hours later.
On top of all of this, many want a change at QB as well, and I don’t blame them. Some are calling for recently signed QB Geno Smith and others are calling for rookie QB Davis Webb. Eli Manning has totaled just 1,820 yards, 12 TDs, and 6 INTs this season. Whoever the new HC will be, if they decide to fire McAdoo, will have a lot to handle once he takes over the job.
