Giants to begin practicing again on Friday under Spags

Giants will practice on Friday this week under interim HC Steve Spagnuolo. Under McAdoo (and Coughlin at the end) they had recovery days on Friday and then a "lauch" practice on Saturdays.
Will probably be popular with the veteran players

I seem to recall some "unnamed" sources saying they did not like the Saturday launch day.

Not sure if this has been mentioned much on BBI yet, but I for one am very happy to see Spags get this chance. He was a huge part of 2007 and if this is going to be his last month with the organization, I'm glad he gets a chance to man the helm.

It's probably not the likely outcome, but I do think Spags will get an honest opportunity to be the next head coach. I can't imagine ownership is expecting him to work any miracles, but if the team comes out and plays inspired football, and players like JPP (who has been playing when he feels like it) flips the switch, maybe Spags actually gets the nod. I know for many this would not be the clean sweep you wanted, but if Spags comes out and earns the job, then so be it. He has a lot of what Giants like in a Head Coach.

From losing MLB teams in Sept and likewise NFL in Dec. This is exactly what worries me. Two wins in the last four, "competitive" in the other two. McAdoo was "competitive " in Oakland last weekend , as well as in 6 other losses. He needed to go.

Steve Soagnuolo should be under no consideration for the permanent job, even if he wins all four . If the new coach wants him back as DC, given his moth-eaten resume , so be it. If he's that stupid .

If he wins 3, Mara will keep him. 2 is a 50/50. Fear this development .
I don't know why you'd be convinced that the interim coach

Could win any amount of the next 4 games and keep the job. What makes you think that?

A Benedict Arnold his response should have been my GM and Head coach canít walk the green mile and I remain safe. We started this together we need to finish this mission or dream together. However he was offered a chance to become Head coach a sure lie but one only a fool would believe.

practice? Oh right, drop a pass on first down, run into the line on 2nd down for no gain and throw a 6 yard pass on 3rd down.
Was this common around the league?

Do other teams not practice not Fridays?

Its kind of hard to believe the team went from a focus on preparation and practice under Coughlin, to taking Fridays off with MacAdoo. No wonder they always looked so unprepared.
Spags has his work cut out for him

Pretty sure McAdooís Giants were undefeated in practice.

Honestly Iím not really enamored with any of the coaching names being floated right now. If the team comes out and plays hard/competes the rest of the year and the new GM signs off on him, so be it.

WHAT THE FUCK?
Something to keep in mind..

Josh McDanield was Spags OC with the Rams. Interesting to note if McDaniels is the guy.
Has this been established as a regular change  
KeoweeFan : 12/5/2017 9:01 pm : link
(e.g. if Spags were to be the HC in 2018?)
Or rather a short term reaction due to the HC change of the last week?

Yeah and he was horrible. The team declined in just about every offensive category. Granted they went from mediocre to terrible, but a decline all the same. McDaniels is fools gold - only successful in NE.

This guy is a loon. He's been crying in his baby formula since McAdoo was fired, and openly wished for Eli to break his neck in the Dallas game. He's a piece of trash who has no business posting here.

Hi Mr McAdoo - question: are you going to sport a new hair style now that you have some extra free time? maybe a pompadour or a fade to 2 inches on top with a messy part?
Football teams typically wrap up the hard work on Friday  
JonC : 12/6/2017 10:52 am : link
contact on Thursday, and then it's walk-through on Saturday.

BM had Fri & Satur flipped, which annoyed the players.
