A day after wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. said opponents know what's coming from the Giants' offense, McAdoo wasn't alarmed.
"I mean, [the Bucs] study film", he explained to John Healy of the Daily News. "When I was talking to (Vernon) Hargreaves after the game he was just like, 'You know, we know a lot of what you're doing.' It still just comes to a point where we have to trust it".
Beckham had seven catches for 90 yards against Tampa Bay, but accomplished those solid numbers on 15 passes headed his way. "We just have to trust 10 [Eli Manning] to make the throw like he did, not put anything extra on [a route Beckham ran during the game], because if I didn't put something extra on it, the timing probably would have been perfectly right". Every defensive back thinks they know what you're running until they don't.
"Any time you can play that many consecutive games and starts, you're doing something right", Chargers cornerback Casey Hayward said. "You've got to be hungry, you've got to be willing to work and we need to get back to work as a staff and back to work as a team and find a way to improve". Through four games, the Giants have scored a combined two touchdowns in the first half. It's our offense. We were 11-5 a year ago and we were running the same thing. We just don't have any wins to stand up to that. I'm about to take them off, we're in hurry up. As insane as it sounds, both Eli Manning and Philip Rivers are a combined 0-8 this year, which sets up a desperation game on Sunday afternoon. "It's just a matter of execution, really". This was considered by some a critique of McAdoo's offense, and a sign of predictability. I'm going to beat you inside and I'm going to catch this ball and get 7 yards.' Whatever you're going to get. "It's time for us to get a stop.' It's a give and take".More news: Las Vegas shooter targeted nearby jet fuel tanks
As many Eagles players noted after Philadelphia's 26-24 over the Chargers on Sunday, nearly everyone on the visitors' sideline thought it felt like a home game, even though they were playing in a city that's roughly 2,700 miles away from Philly. "I don't see myself giving in, and honestly, I feel like this was the breaking point for us".
Beckham's finger was dislocated and he suffered a slight ankle sprain in Week 4, but it appears he will be fine heading into Week 5 against the Los Angele Chargers. However, the Chargers have their own 0-4 record and are equally anxious to get into the win column.
"We are going to cut back a little bit and just try to take our best game plan to NY", he said. We had a tough loss. "You can fight through all the pain in the world, but losing games is not fun".
