McAdoo-isms

robbieballs2003 : 11/13/2017 4:46 pm
I just felt like putting a list together. Feel free to add. Here is what I have so far:

Protect The Duke
Heavy-Handed
Complementary Football
Um ...
Next Question (but never answering a question)
The Whole Team Needs Me
Our QB needs to play better
You think I'm going to tell you who is calling the plays?
I'm supposed to address the team about suspensions?
Jackrabbit was excused from practice (Jackrabbit is suspended because he was not excused from practice)
We had a great week of practice.
We have practiced better than last year.
I gotta look at the tape.
We have to set our jaws.

Talk about a perfect metaphor... my question is how does the wife let him leave the house in that suit?? How??? You're rich! You're the HC of an NFL franchise and you can't wear a nice fitting suit? You're right that was a sign of trouble.
Here is one  
jvm52106 : 11/13/2017 5:02 pm : link
It's not like we can't score, it's we haven't scored!
We've got to go back  
B in ALB : 11/13/2017 5:04 pm : link
And keep working.

We're winning in practice.


This sums it up perfectly. Fuckin asshole.

“Again, we have to do one thing first. We have to take a look at the tape first. We have to figure out what went wrong. We gotta address it. We gotta fix it. We gotta move on. And we’ll talk about motivation next week. They’re pro football players. They need to be self-motivated. Everybody gets a paycheck this week. We need to go out and play that way.”

I laugh at the winning in practice. If the offense is practicing against the defense then one of our teams (offense or defense) is losing. They can't both be winning.

If winning is showing up then we have clearly set the bar way way too low. This guy have zero cred and even less demonstrated self awareness.
They win

at practice because they are playing against other Giants.
Funny thing is...if it were 2003  
Route 9 : 11/13/2017 5:33 pm : link
That suit he wore would be just seen as "normal"

Oversized suit never bothered me. Better than this slim fit bullshit we got going on today.

Rule 53  
shyster : 11/13/2017 6:03 pm : link
Alas, Giants have only achieved this statistical goal once in nine games this year (Tampa), a game they lost anyway.

The first time he tossed out "Rule 53" in a post-game last year, I'm confident nobody in the room knew what he was talking about.

Mcadoo actually said this in this week's presser. True story.

We can now add "tracking the hip"

geez

Bockman : 11/13/2017 9:52 pm : link
Yeah, tracking the hip  
trueblueinpw : 11/13/2017 10:42 pm : link
What does that mean? Does anyone know what tracking the hip refers to? Here’s fhe quote from today’s presser:

“We looked good in practice all week whether it was building the wall, setting the edge, and tracking the hip.”
The most important one

It means maintaining your leverage on the ball-carrier and not over-committing where the ball-carrier can cut back on you.
And all the time I thought  
Giants_ROK : 11/14/2017 5:35 am : link
it meant following a woman walking down the street.
He was on Boomer and Carton when they were at training camp.  
St. Jimmy : 11/14/2017 5:36 am : link
They were discussing Flowers and McAdoo kept going on about being a good lineman was based on having "Bs in the knees."

Thanks. Is that pretty common language among football coaches these days?

Laughed audibly at that.
He reminds me of a couple coaches  
B in ALB : 11/14/2017 11:21 am : link
I've coached with in the past. They fire off all these colloquials and football terms, yet they have no clue what they mean and certainly no skill when it comes to coaching them.

McAdoo is exactly like those guys.
