As many local sports fans know, the Giants season has been far from “OK”. On Monday morning, the Giants season took another twisting turn as both head coach and the general manger were shown the door. This comes after an embarrassing 2-10 start to the season and just one day after star quarterback Eli Manning saw the first benching of his career. The firings have been called for by Giants fans for several weeks now. On Monday morning, giants ownership finally pulled the trigger.
After an 11-5 season and making the post season for the first time in 5 years, big blue entered 2017 with high hops. From day one of the season those hopes were dashed. As the players were being lost to injuries, the losses piled up. The Giants organization was in turmoil and getting worse game by game. They got hammered at home by the Rams, and then lost to the win less 49ers. The final straw came just this past week when a decision was made to bench quarterback Eli manning, effectively ending his starting streak of 210 consecutive games.
Things got so bad that it was time for head coach Ben McAdoo and general manager Jerry Reese to be handed their pink slips. McAdoo ends his Giants coaching career with a 13-15 record. Reese won 2 Superbowl’s as the general manger of the Giants. But did a poor job this off season in reconstructing the weakness of big blue’s roster. Defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo will take over coaching duties on an interim basis.
