The New York Giants find themselves in more controversy as anonymous players have now begun to take shots at head coach Ben McAdoo.
The New York Giants are watching their season go from disappointing to downright embarrassing–a phrase head coach Ben McAdoo probably wouldn’t agree with given his recent postgame comments.
His own players are finally beginning to tell us what most fans and media have speculated for weeks: he’s lost the team.
#Giants source says he would be "Shocked beyond belief" if Ben McAdoo were to be retained as HC for next year. Says "[Players] hate him, no one trusts him…he's only out for himself."

Unsurprisingly, rumors that McAdoo could soon be fired are beginning to surface. While nothing is official just yet, that chatter is only growing louder.
What I'm hearing from #Giants source: Ben McAdoo to be fired shortly, Spags to take over as interim HC. Source has broken in the past, but waiting for a reliable follow up first. Stay tuned. #GiantsPride

Arguably the most telling report of McAdoo’s antics came courtesy of ESPN’s Josina Anderson.

Although some players, such as Landon Collins, have publicly backed their head coach, the anonymous players who did speak out are just confirming what many of us have been thinking all along. If the consequences weren’t so crippling, there’s a fair chance more players would speak up.
The end seems to be near for a coach that has seemingly put more work into his hair than his game plans.
