McAdoo: No one is giving us 'chance in hell' to beat Broncos

McAdoo: No one is giving us 'chance in hell' to beat Broncos”

It's hard to blame the outside world for lacking faith in the reeling Giants, who are 12-point underdogs.

"People don't think we can score a point without (Beckham)", McAdoo said. The Giants have lost six straight games (including last year's playoffs), will be without seven starters (including their top three wide receivers), and lost their two games on last second field goals. Special teams isn't important in the whole locker room. The indefinite suspension of Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie on Wednesday added to the disarray. Linebacker Jonathan Casillas, defensive end Romeo Okwara, running back Paul Perkins, offensive lineman Weston Richburg, wide receiver Sterling Shepard, and defensive end Olivier Vernon have all been ruled out for Sunday's game. They have only scored 16.4 points a game (ranked 28th in the NFL), down three points from last season. They think our defense lost its stinger.

Still, McAdoo is confident that the Giants can muster enough offense to win on Sunday.

"Practice", McAdoo said. "Watching the way we practice and watching the way we execute in practice". Rodgers-Cromartie was told he would be expected to participate in all team activities this week as if he were going to play, only to receive his punishment on game day.

Yet McAdoo likes his team's confidence.

"When we report to work on Wednesday, our sole focus is getting ready for the next opponent", he said. "We need to do that".

McAdoo seems to have turned to the "nobody believes in us" rallying cry to motivate his team. Now they're not just wounded without their best player and several key ones - the locker room itself is a bit incredulous over the way this week has played out. "So, I'm excited to go see how we play".

The struggling Giants, meanwhile, have yet to find any consistent means of success.
