SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — If Ben McAdoo confronted questions on his job safety as coach of the New York Giants heading into the week, simply think about what will probably be like following a loss to the beforehand winless San Francisco 49ers.
A disappointing season in New York might have hit a brand new low because the Giants have been completely overwhelmed 31-21 on Sunday by a crew that hadn’t even held a lead at any level in a sport the earlier 5 weeks.
“We’re not a good team right now,” linebacker Jonathan Casillas mentioned. “Not a good team right now. Hopefully we can go ahead and turn around to be competitive and compete. It’s sad that I’m sitting here talking about us competing in games instead of talking about winning but that’s the truth.”
It’s performances akin to this which have raised questions on McAdoo’s future with the Giants (1-Eight), who got here into the season with excessive expectations following a playoff berth final season.
McAdoo has been below hearth after a report this previous week from ESPN that quoted an nameless participant as saying the gamers have given up on the season and do not view McAdoo as a pacesetter.
The Giants haven’t fired a coach through the season since 1976 when Bill Arnsparger was let go after a Zero-7 begin and changed by John McVay, who had extra success as an govt who helped construct the 49ers dynasty within the 1980s.
“That doesn’t have anything to do with anything,” McAdoo mentioned of his job safety. “We have to find a way to win a game. We have to address what happened out here on the field today, take a look at the tape and be honest with each other.”
There will not be a variety of good to see on this tape.
The protection was gashed by mbadive performs by way of the air and on the bottom, the Giants have been barely capable of contact rookie quarterback C.J. Beathard after he had been sacked 14 instances in three begins. Eli Manning celebrated a milestone begin by failing to steer the Giants (1-Eight) to a rating within the second half till a rubbish time landing lengthy after the sport had been determined.
Even the particular groups had points with Aldrick Rosas establishing a San Francisco subject purpose by sending the opening kick out of bounds after which lacking a 34-yard subject purpose on the opening drive of the second half.
“We got schooled,” cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie mentioned. “I did not see enough relentless play, attitude. You name it, I did not see it. Everything we should have done, I felt we did not do it.”
The Giants allowed Beathard to throw TD pbades of 83 yards to Marquise Goodwin and 47 yards to Garrett Celek within the second quarter, after which gave up a 33-yard TD run by rookie Matt Breida within the fourth quarter.
Manning dedicated a key fumble with the Giants driving within the first half of his 208th consecutive begin , tying brother Peyton for the second-longest streak by a quarterback in NFL historical past, trailing solely Brett Favre’s 297.
Manning’s numbers regarded good as he accomplished 28 of 37 pbades for 273 yards and two TDs, however the offense generated just one first down on three drives within the second half when San Francisco expanded its lead from 17-13 to 31-13.
“We’re in this situation, we’re the reason we’re in it,” Manning mentioned. “So we just have to keep working, compete every week and expect to win every week.”
