The shipwreck that is the New York Giants has somehow managed to consistently find ways to redefine rock bottom. First, there was Ben McAdoo blaming Eli Manning after a loss. Then Odell Beckham lost his season. There were the two team suspensions handed down by McAdoo after players violated team rules. After a 51-17 home loss to the Rams, McAdoo didn't rule out benching Manning for someone like rookie Davis Webb. And then there's the case of the locker room leaks, which still isn't over. In case you missed it, two anonymous Giants players recently told ESPN's Josina Anderson that the locker room has quit on McAdoo. On Friday, Giants players commented on the leaks, comparing the situation to having a rat in the locker room and calling the players cowards. According to safety Landon Collins, the leaks came from members of the defense. "The stuff that was said came out of the defensive side of the room," Collins said, per the New York Daily News. "We just want him to come forward and be a man." Meanwhile, defensive captain Jonathan Casillas called the comments "cowardly." "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." Defensive lineman Damon Harrison said something similar.
