Pat, I didn't see this malaise coming. I've seen teams that I thought highly of fail before, but the gap between expectations and performance is unprecedented. So question #1. Is this a superbowl (or close to it) roster? And yes, I know the O line is weak, but teams win with weak components. #2. If the roster's decent, then what the heck happened, OR, could it be anything but an abject failure at the coaching level.?

Hi Pat. How has Evan Engram felt about his NFL experience so far? What kinds of things has the Coaching Staff asked him to emphasize this year? Do you think he's adjusting ok to the NFL and the routes he's asked to run?
Pat, If/When Jerry and Richburg get healthy, will that move Bobby Hart to the bench? He was basically abused the entire game by Ingram and Bosa. Moving Jerry back to LG, Fluker at RG, and Pugh at RT seems a better/safer option then playing Hart at this point.
Pat, Eli Apple and Darian Thompson have really struggled this season. In your opinion, do you see either or both as long-term solutions for the Giants? Is there any chance that Apple gets the Antrel Rolle treatment and is eventually shifted to free safety?
What's the pulse on McAdoo and his current job status after all the head-scratching events that have taken part while he has been HC (Odell's sideline antics, the unnecessary boat trip before the playoff game, Eli apple questioning the "culture" of the team, Janoris jenkins reportedly walking off the field before the Chargers game was over, and now the DRC drama)? It looks like from an outsider prospective that he's losing control of the team, and that never bodes well for a Head Coach.
From the outside looking in with the whole DRC situation, it looks like McAdoo does not have a grip on the locker room. Eli Apple saying it's a culture problem raises even more concerns. If McAdoo has indeed lost the locker room and this team wins less than 4 games, how can the Giants justify bringing back McAdoo and Reese? At this point, I'm all in favor of a total house cleaning. Seems like we're heading in that direction, no?
I believe there are at least two eras of football. 1925 - 1975 and 1975 - present. Best football player I have ever seen in the current era of football is LT. He changed the way the game is played. Brady, Rodgers, Peyton, and Montana would certainly be in the conversation about the best QB in the current era of football.
