As the New York Giants' 2017 season continues sinking to new depths thanks to a 1-7 start, safety Landon Collins is showing support for head coach Ben McAdoo. Per NFL reporter Ed Werder, Collins said the Giants "believe in everything [McAdoo] says" and they're "not turning [their] backs" on the second-year head coach. Collins' statement comes after Benjamin Allbright of Mile High Sports Radio reported Giants players "hate" McAdoo and "no one trusts him." Per ESPN's Josina Anderson (via James Kratch of NJ Advanced Media), one unnamed Giants player said McAdoo has "lost the team." "He's going 80 percent on Saturdays (in practice) before we get on a plane, it's wild," the player told Anderson. "Changed our off day. He's dishing out fines like crazy. Suspended two of our stars when we need them most. Throws us under the bus all the time. He's ran us into the ground and people wonder why we've been getting got." The Giants hired McAdoo in January 2016 after he spent the previous two seasons as their offensive coordinator.
