"It was a privilege and an honr to serve as the head coach of the New York Giants and be a member of the organization for four years. I thank the Mara family, the Tisch family, and Jerry Reese and Tom Coughlin for taking the chance on a first time offensive coordinator and enabling me to take an important step in my career. My family and I enjoyed every day of my tenure with the Giants, thanks in large part to the commitment of everybody in the organization. I particularly want to thank the entire coaching staff for their dedication and hard work. I would be remiss if I did not thank the support staff who are often underappreciated but vital to the success of any football team. Finally, I will always appreciate having had the chance to coach so many outstanding players. As I have said many times, they are men of talent, and I believe in their integrity and character. I wish them and the entire organization success in the future."
Classy, and

Wasn't there a thread on this  
BigBlueHens : 12/6/2017 4:13 pm : link
earlier? What are the odds McAdoo is reading BBI? In all seriousness, seems like a good, hardworking man who just couldn't handle New York media and he is stuck in his ways. I believe he will get another chance to coach in the NFL and could be successful, just inexperienced. I wish him all the best, but thankful he is not the Giants coach anymore.
men of talent and intgerity  
Rocky369 : 12/6/2017 4:15 pm : link
that's a nice complement
.  
arcarsenal : 12/6/2017 4:16 pm : link
My vitriol is gone now that he's out the door.

I hate how this year went, but he seems like a good man and I don't wish anything bad on him going forward.

He did his best, just wasn't meant to be and didn't work out .

Best of luck, Ben.
It's a nice statement  
ij_reilly : 12/6/2017 4:16 pm : link
without a single mention of the NY Giants fans, I believe.

The "missing" bit is quite telling, in my opinion.


Never questions McAdoo as a man.  
LI NHB : 12/6/2017 4:17 pm : link
Just unfortunately had shortcomings schematically.
Best of luck in the future, and thanks for your efforts.  
yatqb : 12/6/2017 4:19 pm : link
You clearly gave your all.
I may have missed it but..  
EricJ : 12/6/2017 4:19 pm : link
I dont think Ben nor Reese thanked the fans. I suppose I don't blame them since most of us would not walk across the street to pee on the flames if they were on fire.
i wouldnt thank you  
NoPeanutz : 12/6/2017 4:27 pm : link
ungrateful bastids.
what bothers me is the comment  
mdc1 : 12/6/2017 4:29 pm : link
about first time offensive coordinator. Makes our organization look incompetent and not doing their homework on an important position such as HC. Been discussed, but really sad how we arrived here and the painful steps that STILL are not over yet.
The way I was raised...

If you donít have anything nice to say, donít say anything at all. So, I donít have anything to say.

You're reading way too much into it. Parcells was a first-time defensive coordinator here once, as was Belichick. You win some, you lose some. Looking forward to seeing who's on deck.
never wanted him as OC  
Banks : 12/6/2017 4:46 pm : link
and less so as HC, but I never hated the guy or rooted against him. He seems like a good guy and I hope he can find somewhere to build his skills and repair his rep.

Pretty sure Reese included the fans in his thank you.

Thatís a classy note by McAdoo, during no doubt a very emotional week...not going to nitpick him over it. Iím glad we made the change, ready to move on

Well non-said.

His inflexibility, his decisions and in part his GM plus this season's injuries, in that order, caused his job demise.
I said it before : He tried to be Mike McCarthy,but with even fewer inter personal skills; instead of Ben McAdoo.
Would you thank  
joeinpa : 12/6/2017 4:58 pm : link
the fans after what he's been through

Man is just being honest.
You guys have been asking what Pat Hanlon has been doing  
HomerJones45 : 12/6/2017 4:59 pm : link
he's been writing press statements.
Must suck to reach your dream job  
giant24 : 12/6/2017 5:00 pm : link
and have it end so disastrously. Really felt like we had something in this guy last year.
Yeah ...  
Beezer : 12/6/2017 5:02 pm : link

... no thanks fans. lol

I'm not emotional.
Statement From Mack  
Alwaysblue22 : 12/6/2017 5:05 pm : link
His wife wrote it.. does not sound like Mack at all. Now this does not mean that I wish him ill will. I think Mack like many coaches who get fired from their first coaching job grow from it. BB was fired by the Browns and became a genius with NE. I think Mack has to learn that he has to adapt his offense to the Personnel on the team. If your QB is not Aaron Rodgers don't be stubborn about it. Run a different offense.
classy statement  
Jay on the Island : 12/6/2017 5:15 pm : link
I am embarrassed and frustrated how this season turned out but I am ready to move on and I look forward to the future of this team. Hopefully McAdoo learns from his mistakes and can get back to being a good position coach and perhaps an OC again someday.
Wish him the best  
SFGFNCGiantsFan : 12/6/2017 5:15 pm : link
In his future endeavors.
Interesting that he didn't..  
Danthebigbluefan : 12/6/2017 5:26 pm : link
thank the fans.
Thank  
AcidTest : 12/6/2017 5:53 pm : link
you coach McAdoo for your contributions to the success of the Giants. All the best for you and your family.

didnt know we had so many ex nfl HC's on this board
We've all probably been in  
Reb8thVA : 12/6/2017 6:02 pm : link
A similar situation as McAdoo in some form or fashion regarding our employers. Wish him the best and hope that he can learn from the experience and bring those lessons to his next opportunity
unbelievable  
bc4life : 12/6/2017 6:09 pm : link
after the shit that's been posted about him here on this site and elsewhere and the fans feel slighted because he didn't thank them. wtf
McAdoo  
Dragon : 12/6/2017 6:24 pm : link
Iím sorry to say that even in farewell you are much more than this organization deserves. Fate is fickle but hope springs eternal, As One!

LOL, yeah I find this humorous too.

He's probably seen death threats or close over the last couple months from angry fans. People have been cursing his existence and trashing him non-stop. I wouldn't be in a rush to send a thank you to those people either.

I liked him at first, wound up not being able to stand him by the time he got fired. I couldn't really care less whether he thanked the fans or not.

He won't have any hand in anything that goes on with my favorite football team for the rest of my life so at this point, I'm fine with wishing him well and moving on. I'm sure he's not a bad guy. Just a bad football coach.
What's he gonna say?  
chopperhatch : 12/6/2017 6:42 pm : link
"Fuck all youze guys! I went 11-5 last year and had a rough start, well, and ending to this year, but I did my best to have not good, but GREAT practices. This is the love you show me? The Maras and the Tischs and take turns tongue kissing my asshole lips, and the fans can eat a bag of dicks."

Id at least give him an "A" for chutzbah
i do not feel slighted.....but considering we are the customer  
George from PA : 12/6/2017 7:20 pm : link
that pays the bills...he is shortsighted.

i believe he was way over his head.
It's appropriate  
djm : 12/6/2017 7:22 pm : link
That a huge add is blocking out most of what Ben said. Once again the guy fails to get his point across in proper fashion.

I got the gist, nicely done Mac. May you find success elsewhere.
No mention of Little Mac?

This. And I wish him and his family the best.
I don't feel slighted  
ij_reilly : 12/6/2017 8:50 pm : link
Why would I?

I do believe that omitting the fans reflects on him.

The NY Giants have great fans. Unfortunately, it seems possible that he may have missed out on that. Too bad for him, his loss.
The entire fan base was united in calling for his head  
Mike from SI : 12/6/2017 11:51 pm : link
the year after he had an 11-5 record. I can't fault him for not having love for the fans. Any of us would feel the same way he does right now.
Checking the tape,,,  
silverfox : 12/7/2017 3:56 am : link
He had great practices. But in games he had no clue how to do anything other than what he learned in Green Bay. I also doubt he wrote that statement.
Yeah...  
Brown Recluse : 12/7/2017 6:07 am : link
Good luck and all that but, dont let the door hit you on the way out.

George, this isn't "the customer is always right" type of situation. Most of the fans hated this guy. Again, why would he thank you?

Bothered me too but mainly because he is making an excuse for himself.
Bwhahahahaha  
Tim in Eternal Blue : 12/7/2017 10:12 am : link
Why in the fuck would he thank the fans? The fans helped him get fired mid season.

Yall are something else. Hahaha.
Nothing to say about the Fans ............  
Bluesbreaker : 12/7/2017 1:12 pm : link
Sorry not gonna give him much of any credit for the
11-5 record last year the Offense was a disaster and if not
for some lucky bounces and some terrible opposition coaching we could have been 7-9 It was the defense that
was deserving of the credit .
