Two weeks ago, the New York Giants defeated the Kansas City Chiefs. Today, they announced they are cleaning house of their coach and GM.
If you want some perspective on just how bad the Kansas City Chiefs slide has been, just shift the camera over to New York for just a minute. That’s because on Monday, the New York Giants announced the dismissal of head coach Ben McAdoo and general manager Jerry Reese in the sort of house cleaning move that signals that everything is on fire.
Two weeks ago, the hot seat under everyone in NYC was at least lessened just a bit as they defeated the visiting Chiefs in a miserable 12-9 battle in overtime. It was a shocker for the Chiefs as they came out of the bye highly favored by everyone to roll over the Giants, who had a single win to their credit at the time.
In that game, Harrison Butker was the only sign of life for the Chiefs, a rookie kicker who was steamrolling over any expectations for him.

Two weeks later, the Giants ownership—the Mara family—have admitted that enough is enough and that they can’t take anymore. The franchise has decided to clean house completely and get rid of any leadership responsible for the dumpster fire of a season they’ve endured—a season that included a victory over the Chiefs.
The Giants are definitely a hot mess and these moves were no secret to anyone. McAdoo has been outmatched since he took the reins in the first place, for sure. But all of this gives even more perspective to another team trying to find what went wrong from an opening five game winning streak that made them the class of the NFL. It’s now to the point where the team’s they’ve lost to are firing everyone left and right.
It’s enough to make an already infuriating loss even more pitiful in perspective.
