McAdoo, whose Giants were obliterated 51-17 at home Sunday by the Rams, said he labeled the reports "fake news" because it all came from "anonymous quotes".

According to a source, the New York Giants do not plan to make any decisions on changes to the coaching staff or front office until after the season.

News that McAdoo's job is secure for now comes on the heels of admissions from anonymous Giants players who are fed up with McAdoo. McAdoo, asked if the situation is a risky issue if players indeed feel that way, claimed it is not. After all, even if they had success under a new coach, it still wouldn't be enough to get them into the postseason.

"Whoever was anonymous, whoever said it is a coward, flat out", defensive tackle Damon Harrison told

McAdoo was referring to an ESPN report that cited two players anonymously criticizing him for losing the team, and for alleged missteps such as overworking players in practice on Saturdays and handing out too many fines.

"I don't take things personal in this business", McAdoo said.

"It's not an issue", McAdoo said. "We can handle it, we're strong". I had a couple conversations over the last couple weeks, and I welcome those conversations. It's been a season chock full of injuries for the Giants, especially at the wide receiver position. If they need some help, come see me. "But I do have a lot of confidence in Eli and I have confidence that we're going to right this ship and make a run".

Linebacker Jonathan Casillas said it's like having a "rat in the locker room".
