Giants' Ben McAdoo: 'There's nobody giving us a chance in hell'

Through all the struggles and distractions of the 0-5 Giants, Ben McAdoo is doing everything he can to keep his team on course against a hard matchup of playing the Broncos in Denver on Sunday night. The Giants have lost six straight games (including last year's playoffs), will be without seven starters (including their top three wide receivers), and lost their two games on last second field goals. They think our defense has lost its stinger. Special teams isn't important to the whole locker room. So, we're going to find out what we're made of on a big stage. That's my job. But I still feel we have a good football team.

"OUT for Giants on Sunday: Jonathan Casillas, Olivier Vernon, WR Sterling Shepard, DE Romeo Okwara, TB Paul Perkins, C Weston Richburg".

"When we report to work on Wednesday, our sole focus is getting ready for the next opponent and because the timing was an issue in this situation, the players will be addressed and they will be kept in the loop at the appropriate time", McAdoo said. Now they're not just wounded without their best player and several key ones - the locker room itself is a bit incredulous over the way this week has played out.

McAdoo added that Rodgers-Cromartie has not requested a trade or a release. "Seeing the run game going".

The Giants said the meeting took place Thursday morning.
