After yet another inexcusable, effortless performance for the New York Giants, Ben McAdoo received numerous text messages.

Losing to the winless San Francisco 49ers in the fashion that the New York Giants did on Sunday showed that the players have quit on head coach Ben McAdoo. Neither the offense nor the defense showed up. What did show up after the game were a number of texts on McAdoo’s phone.

Here’s how we figure they read.

Eli Apple:

Hey Josina, did you see the game? That is exactly what I was talking to you about last week when I said that Ben has lost the team.

Eli Apple:

Oh shit, my bad coach, wrong number.

Jerry Reese:

This is a sinking ship and just like Rose with Jack on the Titanic, I won’t make any room for you on the door. I will let go, I will always let go. Anything to save my job…

Tom Coughlin:


Rich Kotite:

Thanks for making me look good Ben. Never thought it could happen but it has.

Ray Handley:

If you end up being free next Sunday, call me, let’s get lunch.

Phil Jackson:

Approach the game with no preset agendas and you’ll probably come away surprised at your overall efforts. If you meet the Buddha in the lane, feed him the ball.

Michael Kay:

See Ya! 

Todd Bowles:

And everyone thought I was the worst football coach in NY? 

Mike Francesa:

Could you be more lost?

Mike Francesa:


Aaron Rodgers:

You do realize Eli is your QB and not me, right?
