Right now Macadoo's food doesn't taste good.

Jim in Forest Hills : 11/13/2017 8:30 pm
His favorite burger, can't enjoy one bite. His favorite beer, doesn't even register the taste as his thoughts are elsewhere. He can't laugh at his favorite shows or enjoy a good book. Every encounter with a fan has to be braced with a steely grimace expecting the worse. Every call from his boss fraught with ill opportunity. Its all darkness for him right now.

I know most of us want him gone, I get it. I'm just envisioning what its like to be him right now, man its terrible. He built this house and I hope he survives it coming crashing down on the other side.
agreed, its not like he

wanted this, its just how things turned out after a disastrous injury.

Good post
It's kinda sad really  
Rjanyg : 11/13/2017 8:44 pm : link
After a pretty successful rookie year to have this kinda season is unthinkable. Somewhere along the way he lost this team and the players seem to be making a large amount of mental errors. I don't see much grit or desire especially from the defense.

It will be a long season.
I made a similar post about how i wasnít going

To pile on anymore. Then he took the shot at Eli once again and that was enough for me to change my mind. He doesnít seem to be aware of his situation.

This. He has no self-awareness and apparently is slow to adapt. He's turned over his play-calling only after the season was in the shitter. He talks as if he is made in the mold of Lil Bill, but he doesn't have the pelts on the wall to back up the bravado.
Nice thread  
RetroJint : 11/13/2017 9:14 pm : link
The guy is going through a wringer . At some point people should pull the horns in. He's more disappointed than the fans .
Perhaps if he demonstrated any . . . .  
TC : 11/13/2017 9:14 pm : link
self-awareness, grace, originality or wit, I could be more sympathetic.
its a tough business  
well...bye TC : 11/13/2017 9:19 pm : link
he came from GB - he knew what he was getting into here.

I understand but you also have to take in account that you only know the media slant given to the story. We really dont know what is going on in that locker room.

We all thought Fassel was a POS in his last year and heard about players who always got away with everything. Then we find out later it was our beloved Tiki Barber causing all the issues.
McAdoo is the lightning rod...  
BamaBlue : 11/13/2017 9:30 pm : link
but the problem is much deeper. Players more interested in themselves than the team are a plague. There is no leadership on the field or in the locker room. Talent can be evaluated and measured. The lack of leadership has a corrosive effect that gets worse when players make the decision to serve themselves and not their team. This is a case where the inmates are running the asylum.

McAdoo is part of the problem. Unless this team gets rid of garbage like Eli Apple, Jenoris Jenkins and JPP the next coach will just be getting the keys to the asylum...
On a human level...  
jnoble : 11/13/2017 9:30 pm : link
...I feel bad for him.Being the HC of any of the New York teams is a dream come true that only very few are fortunate enough to experience. But as a fan, I dunno. He just seems like kind of a self centered prick. If it was just one player taking issue with his ways that would be easy to dismiss as a malcontent. But pretty much the entire defense? Too much smoke to not think there's a fire in the locker room behind the scenes
Why do so many posters  
mrvax : 11/13/2017 9:36 pm : link
spell McAdoo's name wrong. It's not that complicated.

On the bright side, Ben has earned several million dollars here in NY.

You need to add  
montanagiant : 11/13/2017 9:51 pm : link
"And people can't spell his name correctly" to that list of things he is going through.

:)
He seems to be eating just fine  
trueblueinpw : 11/13/2017 10:14 pm : link
In fact, heíd be wise to drop a few pounds in the next few months before he hits the job market. Hefty folk are less likely to be hired.

I dont think this should bother you. But truth be told I dont give a fuck about apeeling his name right on this message board.


Wtf cares
He can choke on that hamburger for all I care  
Route 9 : 11/13/2017 10:33 pm : link
and he looks to be enjoying plenty of burgers. He's definitely obese.
True blue beat me to it!

Yeah. He's a fatty.

Aaron Rogers has kept that entire front office and coaching staff employed. McAdoo literally could have drawn doodles on a page and Rogers would have made it work. I donít give much credibility to the coordinator who gets to coach a generational talent.
Boo hoo

Let me feel bad for the guy who makes millions and is having a bad year. Do better and then you will enjoy your food.

Tough situation -  
section125 : 11/14/2017 6:41 am : link
can't quit because if you ever want another job in football, you can't.
Can't win because the players don't give a crap and there is nothing that can be done right now about it. Players with guaranteed money that don't need to worry about their next job. Probably why lil' Bill rotates his players except for the few he trusts. Blows them out before too many get a big fat contract and they lose their hunger.

Hey the spelling is my poetic license! - jk I screwed up.  
Jim in Forest Hills : 11/14/2017 8:14 am : link
Not seeking sympathy for him (maybe a little), more trying to envision what he's going through and how tough it is when you are in the bell jar.

I mean you land your dream job, making whatever that is - could be $50k, could be $500k, doesn't matter. This is your launching point to the rest of your career. You are doing it the way you were taught (which is flawed without Aaron Rodgers), you deal with the media the way you were taught. The players the same way and its all falling apart in front of you.

Your coworkers don't respect you, your boss is losing confidence, and the customers despise you. Your family is hearing how badly you are doing. All happening while you do what you have been trained to do. It must be an all consuming feeling of failure. Just a rough place to be. I don't think money rescues this, thats just one thing he doesn't have to worry about.

Hey I want him out too, just sayin, hope he catches on somewhere after this and does ok.

THIS!! Their Offense looks just like the Giants does now wihout Rodgers running around and improvising!
He chose this business  
arniefez : 11/14/2017 8:30 am : link
a results based entertainment business. His results are a disaster and his personality is toxic in every way. He'll be well compensated and then move on somewhere else. If he's smart to a head coaching job in college because I doubt he can get an OC in the NFL. But he doesn't appear smart.
Blame the owners  
GoDeep13 : 11/14/2017 9:01 am : link
For keeping him dangling on the chain this long. Fire him now and give him some piece of mind and allow him to move on. We know heís done, he knows heís done, they know heís done. Just be merciful and make it quick.
So a guy who makes a lot of money...  
BamaBlue : 11/14/2017 9:48 am : link
shouldn't get sympathy for going through a difficult time... Great window into the humanity and compassion!

Just wondering... is there a certain income threshold (means test) where you neo-Mother Teresa's would consider having some compassion for another human being who's suffering?
He is really really really bad at his job  
averagejoe : 11/14/2017 10:24 am : link
He was last year too. The weak schedule and big plays late in games by the defense masked his non-existent offense.

I have NO sympathy for this dork. He is stubborn, arrogant, delusional, and needs to be gone ASAP.

Nice guy ? Go home and play with your kids. Coffee is for closers.

I am not sympathetic at all he is in over his head and is an unlikable pompous ass . Maybe he gets it together but his time is up here and guess what it's gonna get a lot worse
with mostly contenders in front of us with FOUR division games coming up he is gonna need a few happy meals becuase it's gonna get real ugly .
I hope

Between that arrogant look on his face, the terrible record and dumb stuff he always says he looks some kind walking, talking, living Will Ferrell character (or one from one his movies) come to life. Sadly, he's among us. He's a joke and again, can choke on his bagel.

I'm tired of this guy.
Yeah, well my food and beer don't taste that great on Sundays, either.

Yes and I think the more the players expose who they are on the field it is in a strange way going to help McAdoo long term. Players that are not responsive to coaching. I do sometimes wonder if we need an african american coach, given that we have douchbag kneelers on the team that cannot separate opinion from their job.
