But he’s a total douchebag. The way he handles the players is like he is the CEO of a corporation and not like a coach of a team filled with different personalities from different backgrounds. He has absolutely zero people skills and his personality is as grating as anyone. He’s the total opposite of a guy like Herm Edwards, and in a lot of ways is exactly like Tom Coughlin was in his first years down in Jacksonville...difference is, Coughlin learned from his mistakes and McAdoo doesn’t think he made any.
While I might not agree with you on Eli, I for the most part agree with your assessment here. Winning covers up flaws, losing exposes them. They played a soft schedule last year. They got almost every break in close games late. Hence, McAdoo's demeanor wasn't a big. He's the same guy this year, but everything gets magnified.
We might not know if he's any good, but my gut feeling says he never had the demeanor to be a head coach. Too terse and sharp with his canned comments. How many times after a loss do I have to hear "Well, we have to look at the tape"? It seems to me that he tries to come over like Belichek, but he doesn't have the resume to pull it off. There were times where he just seems to stumble for answers, and that's a big part of being in charge, having that mic stuck in front of your face after every win or loss, having to answer to the media.
Outside of that, there are things on the outside that made it look like he never had the respect of his players, either. The in-season suspensions alone. To me, those are acts of rebellion.
And I am putting the Eli situation aside making this judgment. Whether he should have been benched or not, there was no way to handle that in a positive manner. If anything, the issue I have with it is why isn't Davis Webb the #2 QB? Is he not developing? Did the coaching staff do a bad job of developing him? Or, does this fall on Reese that he whiffed on another 3rd round pick? I don't know the answer to that.
