I knew it was coming. You knew it was coming. We all knew it was coming. This morning it was made official. The New York Giants have fired head coach Ben Mcadoo. The only question left unanswered is, couldn’t they have waited until the end of the season? The Giants only have four games left this season. And it’s not likie their fighting for anything…..except maybe the top pick in next year’s NFL draft.
Ian Rappaport (@RapSheet) was first to report the firing via Twitter
I believe Mcadoo knew that he was going to be fired long before today. I believe Ben Mcadoo knew that he was going to be fired even before yesterday’s game against the Raiders in which he benched long-time starting quarterback Eli Manning. As a matter of fact, I believe that Manning’s benching had more to do with the fact that Mcadoo knew of his pending job-layoff, more than anything else. It was probably Mac’s final slap in the face to Eli for being a garbage bag that lost him his job. Honestly, I believe Mcadoo was a goner after this season anyway. It really didn’t matter that he benched Eli Manning. Mcadoo’s firing was inevitable. I do believe that benching Eli Manning may have sped up the process, but Mac was gone after this year. The Giants have had an embarrassing season this year. The suits upstairs are desperately looking for someone to blame. Sh*t always rolls downhill not upward. Mcadoo wasn’t the only casualty in New York this morning. Ian Rappaport reported that GM Jerry Reese was also shown the door this morning.
