Jackrabbit walked off the field before the game was over.

Big deal or nothing to see here? Mcadoo said they'll handle it internally but that's a bad reflection on him and where the team is imo.

to come off this thing pretty fast.

To Coughlin's credit, when the Giants shit the bed, he kept his team fighting and competitive. We are going to find out a lot about McAdoo. If his team goes the way of Fassel in the 2nd half of 2003 and out and out quits on him, I don't see him coming back next year. The Denver game could be a brutal display on national TV.

There is no respect at all for Benny the Boob in this locker room. He is no doubt in the same realm as Ray Handley. He is so far in over his head is not funny.
Long way to January.

Shit is starting to get real bad in that locker room. With 11 games left and about 7 or 8 losses (minimum) to endure, itís only going to get worse.

And this whole situation is making players quit. The whole season gone way to fast. This franchise just took a bit bad. I can't say I didn't see it coming cuz I did. I knew the first preseason as HC. Players coaches imo rarely succeed. The Mara s better fix this quick or this will get ugly quick. I should say uglier..
Jags quit on Coughlin his final year  
Vanzetti : 10/9/2017 4:54 pm : link
Red Sox quit on Francona. It can happen to anyone and really says more about the players than the coach.

That said, Coughlin had a lot more gravitas after winning two Super Bowls. Ben has not won anything and everyone knows he lacked experience. So it is going to be tough for him. Unless the team captains stand by him, he is done

uh, not so much. Jags were .500 and lost 3 straight games by a grand total of 5 points before beating the Bengals. They then lost to the Titans. In the last game of the season, they were tied with Colts in the 4th quarter and Peyton led the Colts to a TD to take the lead with 2 minutes to go.

This was pretty bad on Jenkins' part. I am sure it will get handled.
i dont blame him  
Mighty : 10/9/2017 5:30 pm : link
did you see the formations and playcalling at the end? Our coaching staff was more comfortable having TEs out wide running the same 11 personel type plays that they arent comfortable with than they were running plays out of tradiational TE sets. I understand losing 4 WRs is an extreme situation but it was handled piss poor.
Agree with Matt and I don't blame him for walking off

I dread this game as well this could be a whole new level to ugly Giants football .
At least Fassel won 4 games in 2003

If you and Terps ran the team we'd get rid of Jack Rabbit and OBJ and replace them with players who are significantly less talented but men of high character. The team wouldn't win many games but at character means more than wins

The team doesn't win many games now.

Indications that the team is not responding to the coach. But a lot of that comes with losing especially after such high expectations.

It s unbelievable after last year but MacAdoo is prob coaching for his job.

arcarsenal : 10/9/2017 6:31 pm : link
Be prepared to hear all types of stuff like this over the coming weeks. This is what comes with the territory of losing and a coach that players don't totally trust or buy into. It'll get ugly quickly.

Slick!

Thank God for beer. That'll help me through these next 11 games, most of which will be completely unwatchable.

ago people scoffed at the Coughlin tactic of bringing in team captains, saying they'd rather have studs with talents instead of leaders without it.

Now they are outraged when we see what happens when you bring in studs who aren't leaders.
I forgive him...  
Dan in the Springs : 10/9/2017 7:08 pm : link
These guys are competitors. I love what Jackrabbit brings to the table. How many of us who put much, much less into the game walked out or threw a remote with :40 remaining.

Yes, it was unprofessional, but imo and understandable reaction to what has to be the biggest frustration of his career.

And this guy played for years with the Rams. He knows a sinking ship when he's on one.

I invite all of you to get back on board the Jackrabbit fan bandwagon, because he's not such a bad guy to root for, in spite of yesterday.

you absolutely need leaders on the team and the Giants of recent years were lacking in that area.

They have drafted a whole bunch of team captains. It did nothing and they still lost a lot of games and looked lousy doing it,

old man : 10/9/2017 9:35 pm : link
has a potential OUT in '18.
Is that a team only OUT or can either terminate?
If it's the later I think he goes. Snacks and OV may want to go in '19, though Snacks seems far more likely to find a buyer.
Itís basic leadership  
family progtitioner : 10/9/2017 10:06 pm : link
You canít have a team of non character pure talent guys just as itís unrealistic to think you can assemble a team full of harry carsons. Every team is going to have those who buy in, those who never will, and then the undecided. The key is to not let the poisonous element turn the undecided against the team. Itís not easy when things are not going as well as hoped and now itís going to be extremely difficult for mcadoo.

This is his test, his defining moment as a hc. Not xís and oís, but can he get this surviving group of players to at least play out this dumpster fire of a season and not totally embarrass themselves. Weíll see

you still need leaders on the field. Do you think guys like LT and Carson would allow some of the younger players on the defense do this even with Ray Handley as the coach? We have no leaders on this defense. Collins is developing into one I suspect.
one guy walking off the field....  
BillKo : 10/10/2017 9:13 am : link
...doesn't indicate much. There's 45 guys out there...they aren't all on the same page all the time. Frustration mounts........look at us as fans!

But, if you're the HC, you need to address it with the player.

The question is, will it be addressed?

This. Based on how I see Mac act and talk - just his overall vibe - I don't get the impression it's going to happen.

I hope I am wrong.
