New York Giants co-owners John Mara and Steve Tisch are well aware of the team’s 1-8 record and how it got there.
But if you’re looking for them to make a change at the head coaching spot, that’s not going to happen until at least the end of the season.
In a joint written statement released by the team, Mara and Tisch confirmed that McAdoo has their support.
“We are in the midst of an extremely disappointing season. Our performance this year, particularly the past two weeks, is inexcusable and frustrating. While we appreciate that our fans are unhappy with what has occurred, nobody is more upset than we are.”
With that said, ownership, which historically has not given up on a head coach during the season,isn’t about to pull the plug on the McAdoo era.
“Our plan is to do what we have always done, which is to not offer a running commentary on the season,” the co-owners said.
“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 we move forward.”

The co-owners made their frustration clear, but it bears mention that after the Giants had a meltdown in 2014 against the Jaguars, the game in which Mara later admitted that he wanted to “fire everybody,” they stuck with then head coach Tom Coughlin, who went 3-1 down the stretch.
While it is still possible that McAdoo might not be back after this season, the owners are apparently not about to do anything rash or based on emotion, thus sending the clubhouse into a further tailspin.
