The New York Giants offered a statement from management Monday, in which co-owners John Mara and Steve Tisch supported embattled head coach Ben McAdoo, per ESPN's Adam Schefter:

Ben McAdoo is our head coach and has our support. We are in the midst of an extremely disappointing season. Our performance this year, particularly the past two weeks, is inexcusable and frustrating. While we appreciate that our fans are unhappy with what has occurred, nobody is more upset than we are.

Our plan is to do what we have always done, which is to not offer a running commentary on the season. It is our responsibility to determine the reasons for our poor performance and at the end of the year, we will evaluate the 2017 season in its entirety and make a determination on how we move forward.

The Giants are in the midst of a 1-8 season, and lost to the previously winless San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.

In addition to dealing with several embarrassing losses, McAdoo has had to fight reports and widespread perception that he's been tuned out by his players.

The second-year leader has suspended veterans Janoris Jenkins and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie a game apiece for separate incidents over the last several weeks, and the Giants have had their effort on the field questioned numerous times.
