Dan Graziano of ESPN reports that the Giants do not plan to make any changes to the coaching staff or front office during the season.
A source tells Graziano that Giants’ ownership considers the recent anonymous comments from players as being “normal griping during a losing season.”
Giants’ ownership reportedly prefers to allow the season play out and judge the year in its entirety.
Yesterday, an anonymous Giants’ player told ESPN’s Josina Anderson that HC Ben McAdoo “has lost the team” due to a number of decisions including the suspensions handed down to cornerbacks Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Janoris Jenkins.
“McAdoo has lost this team,” the player said, via Pro Football Talk. “He’s got going 80 percent on Saturdays before we get on a plane to play a game, it’s wild. Changed our off day. He’s dishing out fines like crazy. Suspended two of our stars when we need them most. Throws us under the bus all the time. He’s ran us into the ground and people wonder why we’ve been getting got.”
McAdoo said Thursday that he has an “open door policy” with his team and welcomes anyone to air their concerns.
“First things first: I have an open-door policy. So any player that has anything to say is welcome to come in the front door and talk,” McAdoo said, per Art Stapleton. “I had a couple conversations over the last couple weeks, and I welcome those conversations.”
Given how poorly things have gone for the Giants, many wonder if McAdoo and GM Jerry Reese will be able to survive this year, even though he managed to get them in the playoffs last season. Although, it appears as though he won’t know for certain until after the year is out.
