Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reported earlier in the day that there has been buzz in league circles that the Giants could fire HC Ben McAdoo on Monday should they lose to the 49ers.
Well, New York, unfortunately, got beat 31-21 on Sunday and are now 1-8 on the season.
The Giants are known for not making rash decisions, especially during the season, but some believe the team is showing signs of quitting on their head coach, despite some notable players defending McAdoo.
Florio added in a separate article that there’s no guarantee Giants’ ownership will move on from McAdoo Monday, but his sources in the know believe it’s possible.
McAdoo told reporters after the game that he isn’t worried about his job status right now.
“What ‘situation’?” McAdoo said. “We have to go correct the tape. We have to get ready for the next ball game. We get a chance to play probably one of the best teams in football next week, so there’s no ‘situation’.”
“Tyrod is our starter,” McDermott said, via the Buffalo News. “I’m just going to evaluate Nathan’s play. I thought he did some good things. Moved the offense there. Obviously, got us into the end zone, so that was a positive.”
Taylor was eventually benched in favor of rookie QB Nathan Peterman.

- Hundley downplayed the issue after the game and a league source tells Mike Florio that he’s “fine.”
“I love it here,” Keenum said after Sunday’s win over the Redskins. “I love these guys. My wife and I love it here.”
Recent reports have said that the Vikings could turn to Teddy Bridgewater if Keenum faulters, but he’s coming off of a four-touchdown performance and has helped lead to the team to a 7-2 record.
