Post your Ben McAdoo Sonnet here

Mike in NY : 12/5/2017 2:28 pm
In came a coach from the land of Packers
To coach an elite quarterback
He shredded the offense as if with weed-whackers
Two plays for nothing followed by a sack

Ending with nothing but a quarterback controversy
Amidst a season of constant losses
The media showed no mercy
Calling for a termination of all the bosses

The media had it right
It was time for McAdoo to go
As dissent from the defense came to light
The problems continued to grow

From a team that had won it all
There was little more they could fall

I took multiple cracks at the limericks and haikus, but sonnets are too much work.

Perhaps you could give us a quatrain or a ballad.

There once was a man from Homer City
To coach a team whose fans showed no pity
He spoke heavy-handed
But on his ass he so landed
Now the fanatics no longer feel shitty

Being one Day at my TV all alone
...So many bad plays I happened to see
As much as it greiveth me to think thereon,
...At my right hand a clicker appeared to be
So Fair as to make the greatest good delight
American Pickers, The Jets,
or The Last Alaskans call to me from afar

I rode the buttons of that bad beast
...That at the last, and in my short time I spied
Reruns of The Voice! Where, my fandom oppressed
...Fell to the ground, and there untimely died
Cruell Death vanquished such a noble beauty
Which oft made me wail so hardily of desire;

'Sack That Bad Bastard!'

Obviously
"There once was a HC named McAdoo  
old man : 12/5/2017 4:20 pm : link
.....himself he can go screw."

Lots of lines ending with words that rhyme with McAdoo.
Here is my crack at it:

I've loved the New York Giants my whole life.
My father gave my gift of grief and joy.
I've watched the team through glory and through strife.
From that first game when I was just a boy.

The fumble changed them for the better true.
It took some time. Simms. LT And Parcells.
It isn't easy loving the Big Blue.
But winning Superbowls sure makes it swell.

The helmet catch and no nineteen and O.
And Brady crying. Way to go Big Blue!
Lombardi in the house again one time?
No! Eli Manning went and got us two!

McAdoo then sends Eli to the bench
And ends the streak. I just can't stand the stench.
I'll try Haiku

Thanks! Definitely more creative than McAdoo's offensive schemes.

Big Blue fans all wanted to puke
at the coach who preached of the “The Duke”
We first called him Ben, but he went two and ten.
And his key cards have all been rebuked.
