The Ben McAdoo Era

Deadass NYG : 2/16/2017 10:57 am
As the offseason keeps progressing, it's been interesting to see some of the moves that Ben McAdoo and team personnel are doing with the roster. With recent cuts and re-signs his strategy is starting to become clear. What do you guys think about this new Ben McAdoo Era so far?
The Ben McAdoo Era - ( New Window )

McAdoo established himself with the Redskins win

Getting the team up and ready to play a "meaningless" game in week 17 against a desperate team in a "win and in" game is the mark of a coach who is in control of his team. Our playoff win, so to speak.

Not want to call yourself a writer for the New York Giants, that implies they pay you to write on their behalf. They can get prickly about that.
Well maybe but what surprised here?

All predictable moves, especially so coming from an offense that was impotent for most of the season, even with a light schedule of opponents. Everybody knew Victor was leaving. He thinks he can still play. The Giants think otherwise. Jennings was a sub-par back. They didn't bother to use Donnell for half the season.

Formulaic football doesn't carry over from season to season. More points, maybe many more points , and enhanced offensive efficiency , will be required in '17 to match last season's 11 wins. It's encouraging that nobody is operating under any illusions. They are not suffering from complacency . But they better be super aggressive in talent retention and addition or McAdoo's first season will come to resemble Fassel's. Put it another way: The Giants are a few bad months from inheriting the basement in the NFC East. That's how closely the teams are matched .

No. That would be the Spagnuolo Error.

1) Deadass- good job and good luck!
2) BillT- very well put. I felt the same way at the time and got really proud of our team.
