This had to be the most shocking update I got on my phone yesterday when it read two Giants players have anonymously ripped head coach Ben McAdoo for his coaching this season. Or, come to think of it, is it really that shocking?
Just look at what has happened. To call Big Blue's performance to this point of the season a dumpster fire is the biggest understatement of 2018. It has been an absolute firestorm in the Giants' locker room from the get-go, and whenever an incident pops up whether it's about Eli Apple's benching or Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Janoris Jenkins' suspension, everything points back to McAdoo.
McAdoo has been a chicken running around with his head cut off, constantly saying that the team needs to do this and that, but won't address any of the issues in his locker room let alone take full responsibility for certain things without pointing back at his players.
This, in my eyes, wouldn't be as bad if the Giants didn't have such high expectations coming into the season. To see everything that could've been go down the drain in a hurry puts such a bad taste in every player's mouth. Instead of picking up his team, McAdoo hasn't had any answers. Just look at what happened when he was asked what he said to his team at halftime on their way to a 51-17 blowout: "Umm."
Players can't hold it in anymore. I've never seen a locker room this confused, angry, and straight up lost. Bottling up frustrations isn't healthy, and if McAdoo isn't out by the end of the season (and that may be too long), it is going to be a lot worse than anonymous texts to reporters...
