Ben McAdoo Remains on Hot Seat
The New York Giants, who now sit at 1-5, have managed to secure their first victory of the 2017 campaign this past week in a 23-10 win against the Denver Broncos. Head Coach Ben McAdoo has had to overcome issues within his roster, including the recent brief suspension of cornerback Dominique Rogers-Cromatie.
Due to poor offensive execution, McAdoo ultimately gave up his play calling duties to Offensive Coordinator Mike Sullivan earlier in the year. McAdoo then proceeded to call out quarterback and veteran Eli Manning during a press conference, due to his poor play. Starting the season with five straight losses, and coaching in a market as large as New York, McAdoo has consistently seen his name mentioned within the hot seat.
With a lackluster franchise at hand, what does the rest of the season hold for the 2017 Giants? At the moment, hopes of making the playoffs do not seem to be on the table, but New York always has the option to reload for 2018. While losses continue to tally up, how sturdy is the position of McAdoo’s as head coach? Will he be returning in 2018?
The season is reaching near the halfway point, and for the Giants, it’s about the wins they will crucially need down the stretch. The Giants still have the opportunity to play the Dallas Cowboys, Philadelphia Eagles, Washington Redskins (twice), Kansas City Chiefs, Seattle Seahawks, and more.
It’s safe to say that Giants fans don’t desire for McAdoo to return next season, and those skeptics may just get their wish. There may still be ten games remaining in the regular season, but McAdoo will be forced to win a majority of those games in order to save his job. With issues involving the run game, as well as the health of their receiving core, putting up points have been a constant struggle for New York.
While the Giants defense has been above average for the most part, there’s no reason to believe that their defense can assist New York in securing themselves a playoff birth at this point. The bottom line is that while the Giants are in no position to start winning now, they do contain a few key games that could carry a bit of momentum. With continuous losses at hand, expect for McAdoo to find a job elsewhere in the off-season.
