%name Players upset with anonymous report ripping McAdoo

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) Ben McAdoo and players are in a defensive mode after published comments by two anonymous New York Giants players that the second-year coach has lost the team and guys are giving up in the wake of a 1-7 start.

The ESPN report also quoted a player as saying the guys are giving up on the season, the coach is not a leader, that he is handing out more fines this season and that they did not like his policy of having players work out at 80 percent the day before a game.

McAdoo, who usually does not talk to the media on Thursdays, changed his routine. He said he has an open-door policy for anyone who wants to vent.
