Good morning, New York Giants fans! Today is the first day of the rest of Ben McAdoo’s career as Giants head coach. Will that be seven games? Seven years? Let’s check the headlines.
What should have been done on Monday perhaps still will be done after this miserable Giants season comes to its merciful end, on Dec. 31 at home against the Redskins.
So mark Jan. 1, 2018, on your calendars, outraged Giants fans. Your best hope now for a new beginning and a better Giants’ tomorrow may take place on New Year’s Day.
Consider this wishful thinking from a third-year player who does not want to face a grim reality that his Giants might be on the verge of a makeover. Shouting, “They quit!’’ every time a defender whiffs on a tackle or a pass-rusher storms in on Eli Manning is certainly in vogue, but hides the more painful truth. Is it the effort that is lacking or is it the players themselves who are lacking? A team without heart needs a transplant. A team without the requisite talent needs an overhaul.
To use the broad stroke of quitting as an explanation of what ails the Giants is a dramatic but flawed approach. Accusing the Giants of quitting, in some ways, is letting them off too easily. If they quit, they do not care enough. This losing is more about the Giants not being good enough, which is a much more insidious problem to solve.
