4 takeaways from Giants' 31-21 loss to 49ers

New York Giants head coach Ben Mc Adoo and his team hope to avoid some history today

Our performance this year, particularly the past two weeks [the Giants lost at home to the Rams, 51-17, and then the 49ers, 31-21], inexcusable and frustrating. "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 to move forward".

It led McAdoo to repeatedly say his team lacked "the desire to finish on a consistent basis" and he left the door open to benching players who do not show that desire.

"That doesn't have anything to do with anything", McAdoo said of his job security. "I did not see enough relentless play, attitude".

However, the Giants have a history of being very conservative about these types of decisions.

Instead, McAdoo said his focus was elsewhere and did not provide much reaction to ownership's statement while on his Monday conference call. No one expected our record to be what it is at this point, or us to be playing the type of football we are playing at this point.

"It's something we're taking a look at", McAdoo said. "We need to find a way to improve". That came just a few days after two players anonymously told ESPN's Josina Anderson that McAdoo, just midway through his second year as head coach, had lost his team and players have given up on the season.

Mugabe's house sealed off by army
Political analysts however say the military stayed quiet then because the beneficiary of Mujuru's downfall was the 75-year-old Mnangagwa, a war veteran.

The Giants head coach would not name anyone specifically, but it was hard not to think he was referring to Janoris Jenkins.

They can't score: They haven't put up more than 24 points in 15 consecutive games, including January's playoff loss at Green Bay.

Until such a move is made (if at all), McAdoo is all about keeping the blinders on.

Marshall was a bust, then he and offensive catalyst Odell Beckham Jr. suffered season-ending ankle injuries against the Chargers on October 8 in the team's fifth straight loss.

Sunday's game was on the road, and it's probably best for McAdoo that it was.
