McAdoo Press Conference...

EricJ : 11/12/2017 7:58 pm
he says the players need to be self motivated. The way he answered the question indicated that it is not his job to motivate them. Very interesting... I am really trying to figure out what he does.

As usual, he said in response to another question that he will have to look at the tape. Do any of these reporters follow up with the same question a few days later after he has had a chance to review the game film?

Let me look at the tape of the press conference

You know, I was just going to post the same thing. My recollection is exactly the same. Handley did say something to that effect.
Hey, McAdoo!

Tailgating  
Arkbach : 11/12/2017 8:20 pm : link
keeps this going on and on. I read all the time people go just for the tailgating. When people stop going like they do in other cities Mara will either sell or fix this. The Giants are a product. Why do people keep buying a product that isn't any good?
Look at the tape

Wish one of these reporters would push back when he gives this boilerplate answer to everything.

All they have to say is, I understand you need to look at the tape but tell me what you saw on the field. Or what are you actually doing or looking at if you have to look at the damn tape to have an adequate response to anything that happened during the game.
Holy crap

his transformation to Handley is nearly complete. You look at any of the quotes on Handley's coaching obituary and you see the same thing said. This was from Dec 31st, 1992, when Handley was let go after the season

Quote:
...He walked out of one news conference because he did not like a question. Later, when he was asked to define his job, he said he was a teacher, not a motivator, and said professional players should motivate themselves.

This year, his new defensive coordinator, Rod Rust, installed a read-and-react defense that antagonized veteran defensive players who enjoyed so much success in the past with an aggressive system. Players complained that there was no communication with coaches. And there were many more problems.


History repeats itself. McAdoo is not an NFL head coach. Not now at least. Mara needs to fire him tomorrow. No sense letting this continue on.

his situation at 1-8 he replied "What situation, there is no situation here."

Really ? Is he that stupid or just in denial.

His actions and responses are similar to what happened in this picture. The Titanic was sinking and yet the band kept playing as if there was nothing wrong.
