New York Giants coach Ben McAdoo knows that it’s going to be tough to take down the Denver Broncos on Sunday. The Broncos are 3-1, but they’re coming off of a bye and the Giants are sitting at 0-5.
It’s a tall order.
“Nobody is giving us a chance in hell to go win this ball game,” Ben McAdoo said, per ESPN’s Jordan Raanan. “People don’t think we can score a point without 13…”
He’s referring to superstar wide receiver Odell Beckham, who was lost for the year when he broke his ankle in the game against the Los Angeles Chargers. The Chargers were also 0-4 at the time. They got their first win, while the Giants lost their best player and their fifth game of the season.
It’s not just Beckham, though. The Giants put out their list of players who are already ruled out for the Denver game, and it’s enormous.
“OUT for Giants on Sunday: Jonathan Casillas, Olivier Vernon, WR Sterling Shepard, DE Romeo Okwara, TB Paul Perkins, C Weston Richburg. Ouch!” Raanan wrote. “That’s almost the entire inactive list and doesn’t include being minus OBJ, Marshall and Harris vs. Broncos.”
Wide receivers Brandon Marshall and Dwayne Harris are on injured reserve, along with Beckham.
There are some other very big names on that list. Vernon can be one of the best defensive linemen in the NFL when healthy. Shepard, a former second-round draft pick, was the only real weapon left at wide receiver.
The Giants have also suspended cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. He got into an argument with the coaching staff and walked out of practice this week.
