McAdoo shows reeling Giants horror movie of loss to 49ers

Ben McAdoo had a surprise waiting for the Giants when they showed up Wednesday morning. It was not a pleasant one.

Instead of separating to digest the tape of Sunday’s loss to the 49ers as they usually do — as offensive and defensive units, and even smaller sometimes as position groups — McAdoo decided to show a number of clips from the disappointing performance to the team as a whole.

All 53 players. All coaches. All of the practice squad. Everyone who had a hand in the 31-21 loss in one way or another.

“We had a long, hard, honest meeting,” McAdoo said. “We had some open conversations, some hard talk, some plain talk, some simple talk. We played some film and we were brutally honest with each other.”

maybe it will keep the Giants within three scores against the Chiefs.

Probably not.

Sunday's post game:

Q: Coach do you think the team played poorly?
A: We have to look at the tape

Q: but you lost 48-3?
A: Well we had a great week of practice.

Q: another embarassing effort, are you disappointed?
A; no we're not embarassed or disappointed! We had a great week of practice! I'll look at the tape and come back to you.

Is beginning at 0-5, how many people here stopped watching.

Please understand I m not criticizing, maybe you re the smart ones.

It was just surprising the number,on a site that attracts diehards, how many bailed to the point they won t even watch on tv.

I think people already stopped watching as much even before this season. The losing doesn't help but there's little to care about with the NFL. I wouldn't even miss it if it didn't exist tomorrow.

Wow, that s quite a statement. If the NFL is losing fans like you, they need to reconsider what they are doing.

Its a combination of things but the strange part is that I love following the economics of football more than the games themselves. Just bored to death most of the time.

If it wasn't for an attempt to have an activity to bond with my dad, uncle, and sons, I'd probably lose interest even quicker than I am already.

We could play like the Browns or the Niners at least
I'm probably in the minority...  
an_idol_mind : 11/16/2017 9:29 am : link
but I'd really like to see McAdoo find his footing as a coach and get this team to play with some pride. Alas, I don't think it's going to happen.

The league is circling the bowl. It's much more than just the Giants being bad.
i still watch every minute if possible.  
markky : 11/16/2017 9:50 am : link
even watching this disaster of a team is better than not having a team to watch (for me at least).

and this season will make our next superbowl even sweeter. remember how sweet SB XXI was? well, now we'll get to relive that.

same here. I almost never watch other non-Giants games. And I no longer plan my day around the Giants

is becoming something not worth watching.....unless of course, you are one of the teams in the playoff hunt....when it's your team, they even look better than they really are...like the 2016 Giants?

I remember years back, when you just had one or two perenial
teams that sucked year after year......but now, the really bad teams are being joined by mediocre teams, who just do not put a good product on the field....

I use to flip channels to watch other games...today, even those games leave much to be desired....

College games are more exciting, and enjoyable to watch....Mark Cuban didn't buy a football franchise for a reason....
Didn't this team have a bye week recently?  
Carson53 : 11/16/2017 10:03 am : link
MacAdon't was watching this crap well before the last two
weeks of implosion...hey coach, why not speak up then?
That to me is the final nail in the coffin, he is suspending
people, but doesn't think to have a meeting back then?

.

The reason Cuban didn't buy one, is the NFL refused to have him, that's the real reason.
He moved on to the NBA after they said thanks, but no thanks. It's wasn't for lack of trying on his part...

You forgot the usual assertion from McAdoo that all the mistakes are correctable. Maybe one day someone will follow-up and ask him why none of them ever get corrected.

Sadly I agree, the quality of games is just so bad now, I mean across the board bad. Bad tackling, poor blocking, terrible throws, convoluted catch rules, constant strife in terms of suspensions and "gates" and who slapped his gf or kicked his dog....it's enough already. I used to starve for NFL news, now that NFL network makes you choke on it and we have Thursday through Monday games and a non stop news cycle of Ezekiel Elliot's suspension, people protesting, sitting, kneeling, suing, boycotting...blech.

The blandness of the NFL  
jvm52106 : 11/16/2017 11:29 am : link
in some ways is sparked by the over saturation but in other ways it is the boring predictable ways the schedules are now done and the lack of building true rivalries any more..

Do any of you remember the years in which the Gmen were bad (early 80's, Late 70's) and how they sometimes played Tampa Bay twice, Green Bay Twice etc?? Today's scheduling is set in stone for years to come. It kind of sucks.

I mentioned this previously but some changes to the schedule, and to the draft would make things far more interesting.

Make the schedules be more inline with where teams finished. All 1st place, 2nd place, 3rd place, 4th place teams play each other across the conferences (that covers the inter conference games)and just rotate the years for home vs away matchups. (easier than it sounds) .. That helps a lot with the strength of schedule differences and keeps opponents varied year to year.

Then you play a division in your conference as you do now and the two other teams who finished in the same spot as you in their division.

So in a given year (using standings right now as an example for next years schedule):

Giants would play- Dallas (2), Philly (2), Wash (2), Jets (currently), Browns, Colts and Broncos, Saints, TB, Atl and Car and then SF and Chi.

It would make the season results far more interesting and the games in the last couple of weeks more meaningful as the Jets could move up and Miami falls (making them our opponent next year instead) etc.

Add to that a change in the draft set up. Since bad teams will play all other bad teams the following year as part of their scheduling, no more automatic #1 pick based on record. All teams with a LOSING record (meaning less than 8-8) and who did not make the playoffs are put in a selection method for draft position. Makes the draft a tad more exciting for teams as the #1 pick could be theirs. Plus, it opens up doors to more trades draft day as some teams may get higher selection spots than those that need a QB or that one marquee guy at a position and thus are looking to move up.

It would certainly make the year to year schedules more exciting as you would not know who you will face until that last week of the season is done (minus your divisional foes and the 1 conference division you are slated to play)..

Think of it this way too, it would mean New England would have to play Philly, Minn, New Orleans, St. louis as well as Kansas City and Pittsburgh next year on top of AFC South and their divisional opponents.

Agree completely. It's all of the above. But for me personally, I could tune out all the other shit if the games weren't so bad. The quality of play if just putrid.

giantfan2000 : 11/16/2017 1:30 pm : link
why is it week 9 when McAdoo finally calls the team out ? instead of throwing individuals under the bus?

I agree that NFL is boring now .. I think the reason is the effort to make NFL pass first league -- more passing means more injuries and worst defenses since passing penalties are mostly called on defense.



Damn...

Less than two hours? Two minutes is about as much of that snoozefest as I can take.
