Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Giants HC Ben McAdoo will continue to call plans on offense against the Eagles on Sunday.
Rapoport says calling plays is “simply in McAdoo’s DNA” and he plans to continue to work closely with offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan on the game plan.
According to Rapoport, Giants coaches have “turned up the temperature on the players” in what he says was an “intense week” for the Giants.
Rapoport adds that while there’s a sense of urgency within the team, there isn’t any panic or desperation setting in.
One Giants coach tells Rapoport that while they haven’t played well during the 0-2 start to the season, the players are holding one another accountable and the overall leadership on the team has been outstanding.
The Giants’ offense has been terrible to open the year. They rank No. 30 in points scored, No. 29 in total yards, No. 30 in passing yards and No. 32 in rushing yards over the first two games, which is why there were calls for McAdoo to consider giving up play-calling duties this week.
McAdoo, 40, was hired as the Giants’ offensive coordinator back in 2014 before he was promoted to head coach last year. During his two years in charge of the Giants, McAdoo has led them to a record of 11-7 (61.1 percent), which includes a playoff appearance.
