Some New York Giants fans are hoping that team will part ways with head coach Ben McAdoo, especially after Sunday’s loss to the lowly San Francisco 49ers. However, Giants owners John Mara and Steve Tisch have now released a statement, insisting that the team will stand by its head coach despite a season that has seen New York go from Super Bowl contenders to a chance at the No. 1 pick.
“Ben McAdoo is our head coach and has our support,” they wrote in a statement. “We are in the midst of an extremely disappointing season. Our performance this year, particularly the past two weeks, is inexcusable and frustrating. While we appreciate that our fans are unhappy with what has occurred, nobody is more upset than we are.
“Our plan is to do what we have always done, which is to not offer a running commentary on the season. It is our responsibility to determine the reasons for our poor performance and at the end of the year, we will evaluate the 2017 season in its entirety and make a determination on how we move forward.”
While the Giants bosses had no problem expressing their displeasure with how the season has played out, McAdoo is not going anywhere, at least not until the 2017-18 campaign comes to a close. That’s sure to upset some “Big Blue” fans, but the decision falls in line with how the Giants typically operate.
The organization tends not to fire people mid-season. That won’t change in regards to McAdoo, even as losing and dysfunction continues to plague the Giants.
