A stupid decision, yes... but that did not cost him his job.  He may have kept his job until the end of the season, but he was going to be fired regardless.

So, it did cost him his job. As I said.

How do you figure?  That family is on par with the Rooneys as one of the most respected families in pro football.
not anymore IF they ordered Eli be benched

He said he?d signed off on Eli being benched for a half? LOL
What a joke and likely lie!

I never liked that Franchise anyways

Eli being benched is not the issue. Starting Geno Smith is the issue.

Not sure how someone could have "stepped in".  McAdoo and Reese were both on board with the decision.  Other than the owner, not many people are in a position to "step in" on a decision made by the head coach and GM.  Mara made the right decision firing them both.
The owner could have stepped in.  And just yesterday he said that he should/could have.

I just said that.  I said "other than the owner".

Not by fans of any team outside the Giants. They're top 3 most ridiculed by far, and for good reason. Mara is a complete tool.

Please. The owners hung him out to dry and then fired him to make it seem like they're not the root cause.

This was the most manipulative scapegoating I have ever seen (McAdoo still deserved to be fired - this just wasn't the reason).

Eli's numbers yesterday were pretty much identical to what Geno put up last week
