Ben McAdoo could be Giants saving grace

The newly hired head coach has his team set up for a return to postseason contention.

After a 12 year stretch with head coach Tom Coughlin, the New York Giants are rebuilding their program, but they're not making drastic changes. Promoting offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo to head coach ensures a certain stability. 

 There is no question that McAdoo is qualified for the job. Coughlin basically secured his position before he left the organization.

 McAdoo has a track record of success in improving offensive tactics and is a quick-witted leader. He reached a new peak in his career during his tenure with the Packers. The team won the 2010 Super Bowl with McAdoo as the tight ends coach. After a great run with Mike McCarthy he was ready to take a big leap in his career.

 In 2014, he became the Giants offensive coordinator and quickly proved himself. Eli Manning's interceptions were nearly cut in half from 27 in 2013 to just 14 in 2014, under the guidance of McAdoo. The Giants long time quarterback also had the most passing TDs of his career in the following year. 

 McAdoo's goal is clear:

"The vision for this football team goes into winning and putting that fifth Lombardy trophy in that case," McAdoo said. 

 McAdoo seems favorable to all members of the organization and has a talented group to execute his meticulous game plan for a successful season.
