Ben McAdoo is having a tough week. His comically painful press conference, in which he remained silent when a reporter asked him what he said to his team at halftime of Sunday's blowout loss to the Rams, seems to be the least of his worries.


Some of his players aren't staying silent, albeit anonymously.


"Guys are giving up on the season and nothing's being done. Guys just don't care anymore," one player said, per an ESPN report.


Another added Wednesday that McAdoo "didn't really have anything for us" during halftime of Sunday's defeat.

"I feel like we really don't got a leader in Coach McAdoo," one of the players admitted.


Many in the NFL community are now looking at the Giants' upcoming game against the 49ers as the possible final straw for the embattled head coach.

Not every Giants player is giving up McAdoo, though. Safety Landon Collins responded to the knocks on his coach, saying, "I wouldn't say he lost the team. I have the utmost respect for him. He's been doing a great job. Just trying trying to figure it out like we all are."


Suspended star corner back Dominque Rodgers-Cromartie also had his coach's back: "I'm an old head. I seen a lot of locker rooms, and I know what guys do," he said. 


"They come to practice lackadaisical. They don't have a care. Nothing really matters no more. And I don't see that happening."


It's easy to forget that McAdoo led the Giants to an impressive 11-5 campaign last year. But he's going to have to start immediately generating some wins if he wants to keep his job in New York much longer.
