The New York Giants had plenty of reason to clean house after a season such as this, but the handling of Eli Manning’s benching was apparently the last straw for owner John Mara. The Giants’ decision to fire coach Ben McAdoo and general manager Jerry Reese seemed abrupt on Monday, but the Manning situation sounds like it contributed. According to Albert Breer of the MMQB, Mara was obviously furious over the last week as a firestorm engulfed the team stemming from Manning’s benching. He was particularly angry that the team’s image took a hit after sitting the team’s iconic quarterback.
