To say 2017 has been a nightmare season for the New York Giants is putting things kindly.

After finishing 11-5 last year and making the NFC Wild Card, head coach Ben McAdoo had every reason to believe 2017 could produce even better results.
After getting off to a 1-7 start, this clearly is not the case.
Perhaps part of the reason the season has unraveled is McAdoo's less-than-inspiring halftime speeches.
Down 27-10 to the Rams on Sunday, apparently this is the motivating pep talk he gave his players.
Unless the team rallies for one heck of a second half, the Giants may soon be in the market for a new NFL head coach.
Here's five possible candidates.
His first rodeo with the Denver Broncos ended after less than two seasons and an 11-17 overall record, but one has to think McDaniels has learned from the past.
Considering the Giants are currently ranked #29 overall in total offense, the man obsessed with schemes and matchups could be just the shot in the arm New York's offense desperately needs.
One of the hottest coaches in all of college football has already led Memphis to as many wins in 2017 as his debut season a year ago with eight. He's helped quarterback Riley Ferguson outgun Heisman winners and hopefuls around the country like Lamar Jackson, Josh Rosen, and Sam Darnold.
With this being Ferguson's last year on campus, maybe Norvell can snag him in the draft and pick up in New York where the duo left off in the state of Tennessee.
Norvell is currently under contract through the 2021 season, but that certainly has never stopped college coaches from bouncing to the pros in the past.
Can the man responsible for some of the greatest comebacks in NFL and college football history resurrect the Giants offense from the dead?
Currently the offensive coordinator with the Eagles, Reich has QB Carson Wentz and the offense cruising to an NFL best 8-1 record and 3,393 total yards of offense.
Considering the Giants should have a top five pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, perhaps Reich could work his magic with another young QB just out of college.
While the rumors are stronger that Kelly would return to the college ranks, one has to wonder if his ego would like a chance at redemption after a horrific one-year stint with a 49ers team completely void of talent in 2016.
If the Giants decide not to give up on Eli Manning, promoting offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan could make sense. During his first stint in New York from 2004-2011, the Giants won Super Bowls XLII and XLVI. As Manning's QB coach in 2010, the signal-caller set team records with 339 completions and a completion rate of 63%.
In 2011, Manning threw for a career-high 4,933 yards, 29 touchdowns, and was the Super Bowl XLVI MVP in the club's upset win over New England.
If Manning has anything left in the well, Sullivan just might be able to get it out of him.
