Giants head coach Ben McAdoo ceded control of the offensive play-calling last week to offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan, but Giants co-owner John Mara said that ownership did not force the move.
After starting the season 0-5, New York went on the road to beat the Broncos, 23-10, without much of its starting offense from the beginning of the season.
"I certainly did not speak to Ben and I know [Steve Tisch] did not about giving up the play-calling," Mara told reporters at the NFL owners meeting, according to NJ.com. "That's got to be the coach's decision at the end of the day."
Mara admits that he and Tisch discussed how the team was struggling but never explicitly told McAdoo that he had to give up the reigns of the offense because of the poor start.
"Steve and I have talked about that," Mara said. "We talk about the games and what goes on. We bitch and moan to one another, but neither one of us spoke to the coach about giving up the play-calling."
As for wide receiver Odell Beckham, Mara sad the star's fractured ankle will not change how the Giants go forward in future contract negotiations.
"I don't think that will have any effect because I think he's going to make a full recovery," Mara said.
