Ben McAdoo laments defense's lack of 'desire to finish'

NFL Week 10 Keys for Giants vs. 49ers

And if I was in Garoppolo's shoes, unless this was always the plan that he wouldn't be playing, I would be looking around thinking I made a huge mistake in wanting out of New England to sit on the bench for the worst team in the league.

"Ben McAdoo is our head coach and has our support", the co-owners said in a statement. That kind of logic is beyond laughable and if that's the mindset of Kyle Shanahan, I'd have to seriously question his sanity.

Pugh, who had not played since October 22 against the Seahawks, said after Sunday's game that he felt good early in the day.

Given the specter of "quitting" that has been lurking in the locker room during this 1-8 season, might McAdoo be inclined to yank a player who is lacking the "desire to finish"? Over their last five games, the Patriots have allowed an average of just 13.4 points per contest and they also benefited from fantastic special teams play against the Broncos on Sunday evening.

"They all proceeded, grim-faced, to the team bus after the latest in a season saturated with embarrassing moments - 49ers 31, Giants 21 on Sunday at Levi's Stadium". A lack lustered Giants team didn't look like they could beat a high school team today. The rookie quarterback threw for 288 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in his first-career win. So the focus moves to the players, plenty of whom have big contracts and have underperformed. Those guys have been working so hard and we just keep coming in every Monday so disappointed. It would also eliminate the excuse that the Giants' poor play has been because the players have lost faith in their head coach.

The Giants barely look like they are trying at times and their once-proud defense is a shadow of its former self, as is their two-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback Eli Manning. "Mainly the quarterback, but also the O-Line, the receivers and the backs". Marquise Goodwin had an 83-yard touchdown reception while Ronald Blair had a pair of sacks on defense.

As we expected, the Cowboys were badly hurt by the absence of a superstar on Sunday night as they fell to a 27-7 defeat at the hands of the Atlanta Falcons.

Why do you say you were outcoached?

FINAL: The @49ers earn their first win of 2017! "Everything we should have done, I felt we did not do it".

Justin Pugh played half a game in his return from a sore back and may miss an even more extended period after aggravating it Sunday. Despite the injury, the rookie safety played the entire game.
