Everyone seems to be falling on their swords out at QDTC these days. The latest is OC Ben McAdoo, who was smack dab in the middle of the Giants' dysfunctional final drive last Sunday in Dallas:

So, Ben McAdoo, when is this offense going to get off the ground? We saw glimpses last season, but now it's Year Two and the first preseason game was a complete dud.

The Giants' hiring of Ben McAdoo to be their new OC last offseason was met with mixed results. Many fans and pundits are still on the fence as to whether McAdoo is the right guy to carry the Giants' offense into the future.

Head coach Tom Coughlin is not one of those guys

The Giants have been inconsistent on both sides of the ball this year. Their defense has experienced lapses that have led to big plays that lost games. The offense cannot run the football effectively. The Giants are 3-8 and it's no wonder that execution has been the main culprit.

"It is a variety of things," said OC Ben McAdoo when asked why the running game has struggled. ?"It is not always the line. The line, it is easy to point fingers at those guys. It is not always the same guy. It is a different position group, whether it is the five guys up front, whether it is the tight ends, whether it is the backs, the fullback position, there is enough blame to go around, receivers are involved in there, too. Eli Manning has to keep us in a great place, it just goes down to consistency and everyone doing their job, not trying to do too much, but being physical and winning their one on one match up, first and foremost."

There hasn't been much of a honeymoon period for first-year Giants offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo. He's facing plenty of skepticism after the starters' unproductive preseason heading into Monday's opener in Detroit (AP, Sept. 5).

The first-team offense had only three touchdowns in 19 possessions -- including a 73-yard TD run by Rashad Jennings -- as the Giants went 5-0 in the preseason.

The Giants' running game hit rock bottom last year mainly due to injuries, but it was clear they needed some fresh legs in their offensive backfield. As the Giants move forward with their new offensive plan, OC Ben McAdoo looks for specific traits in the backs he needs to run his offense.

"First and foremost, the runner needs to be able to protect the quarterback," McAdoo said back in an interview in late February with Giants.com. "He also needs to be able to run with the ball in his hands and do that well. You?d like to have a complete back. Obviously, it?s ideal to have a guy who?s functional out of the backfield catching the football, but at the end of the day, if they can?t protect the quarterback, they?re going to have a hard time getting on the field."

That is one of the pet peeves of Tom Coughlin. He needs his backs to be able to block. David Wilson, the team's 2011 first-round selection, could not block sufficiently and did not get on the field as a result. Wilson's career is uncertain right now, as he has not been medically cleared to play, but the Giants have apparently moved on.

Ben McAdoo, the Giants' new offensive coordinator, said on a conference call today that his offense will be built around fundamentals and personnel along with "West Coast" principles.

"Most teams in the league have West Coast principles built into their offense, and we?ll be one of them," said McAdoo. "We?re going to be an offense that has an identity, first and foremost. We?re going to be sound, smart and tough. We?re going to be committed to discipline and poise, and at the end of the day, we?re going to hang our hat on the fundamentals."

During the Super Bowl, Giants? outspoken safety Antrel Rolle sat next to Packers? free-agent tight end Jermichael Finley, and the two talked about potentially playing together as members of Big Blue.

Rolle commented on what a talented player Finley is and that he could really help the 2014 Giants.

I couldn?t agree more, Antrel.

Every great Giants team has had a TE that other teams had to game plan for. The Bill Parcells teams had Mark Bavaro and Zeke Mowatt. Later on came Jeremy Shockey, Kevin Boss and yes, Jake Ballard.

The current edition of the Giants have the sedentary, but versatile, Bear Pascoe; Brandon Myers, who was rarely in synch with Eli Manning, and Adrien Robinson, who has yet to show Giant fans that he was worthy of fourth round pick in 2012.

From Andy Furman of Ultimate NYG:

We know very little about Giants new OC Ben McAdoo beyond what those in the mainstream media are reporting. What we do know we like:

1) He's a positions coach who got a promotion.

Listening to Mike Francesa the past few days about the Giants' offensive inefficiencies and he has been driving me nuts with his analysis. When callers broach the subject of play calling, he immediately cuts the caller off, stating "that's not the problem - personnel is the problem," and that he thinks play calling is "overrated."

No kidding, the Giants need to upgrade, but that's not the point his callers are trying to make. It's not the plays OC Kevin Gilbride was calling, it was the process of calling them that is in question. He took too long and it hurt the offense.

The point is the Giants weren't getting the plays into the huddle quick enough for the offense to gain any steam. ?Eli Manning was consistently bumping up against the play clock. Things went downhill from there.

New Giants? offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo said he would like to implement an attack-style system into Big Blue?s offense for next season and beyond.

After watching the offensive unit struggle all year, McAdoo?s words are music to my ears.

However, an attack-style offense on paper is of course different from an attack-style offense in action.

Tom Coughlin is still standing, mainly because his former OC, Kevin Gilbride fell on his sword rather than have Coughlin fight management to keep him. He won't encounter the same situation with his new OC, Ben McAdoo, who will quite possibly be here long after Tom rides off into the sunset.

?I think this is the best coach for the job,? said head coach Tom Coughlin per the Giants. ?With his experiences, I think he brings a lot to the table. Our players are going to be exited to hear what he has to say.?

McAdoo is planning on implementing an attack-style offense, with a new look and attitude:

The hiring of Ben McAdoo as offensive coordinator pumps some oxygen into the Giants' coaches lounge and is intended to revitalize a sliding Eli Manning and a stale, battered Giants offense.

The Giants had to act quickly after meeting with McAdoo yesterday. They could not let this talented young man get wooed away by the Dolphins and Ravens, who he was scheduled to meet with this week.

The 36-year-old McAdoo can also been seen as a long-term hire by the Giants, possibly a head coach in-waiting. He impressed the Giants with the results he got out of Packers' QBs this year after Aaron Rodgers went down with a broken collarbone. The Packers stayed afloat and made a playoff run after Rodgers returned.

It looks like the Giants are not the only ones seeking the services of Green Bay QB coach Ben McAdoo...From Rotoworld:

Packers QBs coach Ben McAdoo is interviewing with the Dolphins for their offensive coordinator vacancy Tuesday.Although he's never been a coorindator, McAdoo is a prime candidate to fill Mike Sherman's shoes as he worked with Joe Philbin in Green Bay. He's also studied under Mike McCarthy for a decade and counts Aaron Rodgers as a reference. McAdoo is also a candidate for the Giants' OC job.

It could be that the Giants' interview was just scheduled ahead of the Dolphins' and not that McAdoo was sent away without an offer. He is rumored to have several offers on the table, plus his current job In Green Bay, so it appears that the decision is McAdoo's, not the possible suitors'.

The Giants' search for a new offensive coordinator is widening....From Rotoworld:
The Giants will interview Packers QBs coach Ben McAdoo for their offensive coordinator vacancy on Saturday.McAdoo interviewed for the Browns' head job Wednesday, but that was thought to be a token, information-gathering meeting. McAdoo is also in the Dolphins' crosshairs, but will meet with the G-Men first. The Giants' other two OC interviews have been with ex-Bucs OC Mike Sullivan and ex-Titans OC Dowell Loggains.
McAdoo comes in with a ringing endorsement from his current charge, Packers QB Aaron Rodgers. From PFT:
?I sent him a text,? Rodgers said on ESPN Wisconsin, via the Cleveland Plain Dealer. ?I said, ?Make sure you put me down as a reference.? Just a little pro athlete joke there, but I?m happy for Ben. Any opportunities he gets, he deserves. He?s a guy that works extremely hard. We had a long talk yesterday, and I just continued to echo the things that I felt about him and appreciate about him.?
