Good morning, New York Giants fans! Here are your Thursday morning headlines.
'Monday Morning Quarterback' identifies 32 assistant coaches who are in line to earn NFL head-coaching jobs eventually. Giants' offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo is No. 22 on the MMQB list. Robert Klemko writes:
Very telling that a two-time Super Bowl winning quarterback in his mid-30s was willing to change his mechanics for a first-time offensive coordinator. #Respect.
NFL.com lists Odell Beckham as one of the most indispensable offensive players in the league, which Giants fans know to be true. It's why his seeminly never-ending hamstring issues are so concering.
This cat is a freak. The Giants are flawed, with major questions all over the place, but they possess one of the most enticing young stars in the NFL today. With Beckham, they have a chance to compete. Without him, hope dies.
When Giants defensive tackle Kenrick Ellis became a free agent, the former member of the New York Jets did not expect to end up staying in New York.
"I got rid of my house and everything, I got rid of where I was living, got rid of my furniture," Ellis said. "I was ready to leave New York. You know my situation there. I was backing up the No. 1 run stopper in the league, so you know, it's a tough decision, so I had to do what I had to do. At the end of the day, hopefully it all works out."
