Fearing reprisal for speaking out against a wrong should not prevent fans from saying a truth
Twelfth, Giants should not cave into the pressure of some organizations in professional sports that are overly sensitive to the feelings of head coaches because of the decades of hard work climbing the ladder of promotion and success.
Additionally, McAdoo is not try much different from the multi-million dollar players. If Manning throws 199 yards repeatedly, fans will have a right to question McAdoo’s decision to start him and Reese’s decision not to look for someone better than Nassib. In that same vein, McAdoo is just like his players as his bad days should make his contract days numbered.
Certainly, McAdoo earned his right to be the head coach of the New York Giants, a position in New York Sports more important than the Mayor of New York City sometimes.
To give voices to all sides of the debate, however, McAdoo is not as respected and a person worthy of being enshrined into the Cleveland’s Hall of Fame as Tom Coughlin. The 2007-2008 season was probably the most remarkable upset that took place in a New Yorker’s lifetime. Treating McAdoo as if he were some kind of demigod would be very bad for professional sports.
