The Giants fired Coach Ben McAdoo on Monday, a person with knowledge of the decision said. Reese's almost 11-year tenure ends with a 90-82 record, two Super Bowl championships (2007 and 2011). The Giants organization struggling is an understatement; the team has been marked with injuries and player discontent. The setback worsened their record to 2-10, but the game will mostly be remembered as the first in the franchise's last 211 regular season games in which a quarterback not named Eli Manning started for the team. Fluker. Second receivers Dwayne Harris and Keeon Johnson also were put on the list, forcing the Giants to reach to the depth of their roster. I told Coach McAdoo, I told Jerry Reese and [co-owner] John Mara all last week I'm not bitter about what happened last week. "I could've handled it differently maybe and suggested (we keep the timeframe for my coming out of the game more flexible)", Manning said.
However, that story marked only the beginning to a hard slide.
Despite speculation Manning would prefer to move on after the season following the Giants' highly contentious decision to bench him this past weekend, the 14-year veteran left the door open for prolonging his career in red and blue. The Giants lost 24-17 to the Raiders on Sunday.

To be honest, I am not someone who looks at a lot of journalists' stuff, but I am always hearing the same stuff. But we have the experience to get better out of a game like that, you know.
The Giants are now heading into an off-season with a bevy of new expectations.
Spagnuolo already had a stint as an National Football League head coach.
To allow Ben McAdoo, a mediocre coordinator playing dress up as a head coach, to bench the cornerstone of your franchise for the past decade and a half in favor of Geno freakin' Smith is not my idea of "classy".
