“As far as Coach McAdoo being fired, being released, I think it was long overdue, I think it was a couple weeks already too late,” he said. “Once you see guys in that locker room start to give these anonymous reports about how he’s handling them бн that’s when you know he’s completely lost the locker room and completely lost the players.”
McAdoo benched Eli Manning before Sunday’s matchup with the Raiders, ending the 2004 No. 1 overall pick’s consecutive regular-season games started streak at 210 games. The former Giants coach said he had the support of the powers that be to make the move, but after going down this road he was fired less than a week later.
Manning now could be the starting quarterback again, and McAdoo is no longer with the team.
Detroit Lions coach Jim Caldwell’s multiyear contract extension, signed earlier this year, appears to provide less job security than initially believed, a source confirmed to ESPN.
Caldwell has been on and off the hot seat since the middle of the 2015 season, when the Lions started 1-6 and he fired offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi and offensive line coaches Jeremiah Washburn and Terry Heffernan, promoting Jim Bob Cooter to offensive coordinator and Ron Prince to offensive line coach.
“We had an agreement to acquire Giancarlo Stanton from the Miami Marlins, subject to him waiving his no-trade clause,” Cardinals chairman and CEO Bill DeWitt Jr. said. “While we are disappointed in his decision, we will continue to make every effort to improve our club for the upcoming season.”
