Jenkins' suspension says one thing, and one thing only to mean: Ben McAdo has to go.
It is insane to have three players -- on the same unit nonetheless -- be disciplined in the same season. First, Eli Apple has an argument with McAdoo on the sidelines, then Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie is suspended as well. The players clearly are not on the same page as McAdoo, and are lashing out accordingly.
Jenkins not showing up to practice on time as well as not telling the Giants where he is is a prime example of a coach not having control over his players. McAdoo has been on a thin thread this entire season, and if he wasn't already in the conversation of losing his job, this suspension from another seasoned veteran really puts him on the hot seat.

Stat of the Day: Janoris Jenkins
So, yet another Giants cornerback will be absent on the field this season. Jenkins has been the team's best pass coverage option this season. He currently has 23 combined tackles, six passes defended, and one pick-six on the season. Losing Jenkins will be a big hit to the Giants, who are already facing a playoff contender in the Rams.
