Giants players call trashing of McAdoo 'cowardly'

Giants players were ticked off Thursday about anonymous quotes from two separate players that trashed both their head coach and defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo the day prior. And they are narrowing their suspect search to corner the pests, John Healy and Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News report.

“The stuff that was said came out of the defensive side of the room,” strong safety Landon Collins said. “We just want him to come forward and be a man.”

Defensive captain Jonathan Casillas said he views the “cowardly” comments in an ESPN report as “lashing out against everybody” on the Giants, not just McAdoo, adding: “I don’t wanna play with” a player who isn’t “all in.”

The anonymous criticisms, amid paragraphs of quotes attributed to two different players, included that “McAdoo has lost this team,” that the coach is not a “leader,” and that players “are giving up on the season.”

“It sucks that something like that was said,” Casillas said. “Everything’s supposed to be in-house, and for something like that to be said is like, I don’t know, it’s like a rat or somebody in the locker room . . . I feel like we got a close-knit group and I don’t know how something like that could have been said, basically.”

“It wasn’t me,” Casillas added, raising his hand.

Even Damon Harrison, characteristically reluctant to discuss the story of the day, called out the players.

“Whoever said it, whoever was anonymous, is a coward. Flat out,” Harrison said. “If you’re not man enough to put your name behind something that you feel because that hasn’t been echoed to anybody in this locker room. I mean, we could have talked it out if you feel that way. It could have went differently, but point blank, whoever said that is a coward.”
