The New York Giants lost against the Oakland Raiders on Sunday to compound a truly terrible season. At the start of their campaign Giants fans harboured hopes of another playoff run. After Sunday their record stands at 2-10.

Today the Franchise decided enough is enough and fired coach Ben McAdoo and general manager Jerry Reese. The writing was on the wall for McAdoo over the past few days after fans turned on him for his clumsy handling of Eli Manning.  After starting 210 regular-season games in a row McAldoo made the bold move to drop Manning in favour of Geno Smith.

This was a decision unpopular with a lot of New York football fans:


The Giants have been absolutely awful this season, although not all of it has been McAdoo's fault. They lost star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. to an ankle injury while Dwayne Harris and Brandon Marshall, also wide receivers, suffered injuries as well.


However their only two wins this year came against a weak Denver Broncos and a crashing Kansas City Chiefs. Today Giants owner John Mara decided to terminate McAdoo's involvement with the team in what is only his second season in charge. GM Reese was involved for two Superbowl runs but has also overseen a failure to secure a playoff place in five of the last six years.

The Giants take on the Dallas Cowboys this Sunday and reports suggest Manning will return for that game.
