Seahawks DL Michael Bennett is even more devastating than you realize

I refuse to narrow down a man who lines up in as many places as Michael Bennett does to just one position on the defensive line. As usual, he was all over the place against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. He made plays from damn near everywhere, too. I had Bennett with seven total tackles, including two tackles for a loss, two pressures and three hits on the quarterback, as well as two other plays where he didn’t make the tackle but he totally blew everything up so his teammates could.

One of those plays was a third-and-1 with 8:46 left in the first quarter. Bennett was lined up as the left defensive end in a five-technique between Vikings rookie right tackle T.J. Clemmings and tight end Kyle Rudolph. He not only beat both of their blocks, but also managed to blow up backup tight end MyCole Pruitt, who was pulling from the backside, before taking on Adrian Peterson in the backfield and forcing him to go laterally while losing ground. Eventually, Seattle Seahawks safety Earl Thomas and a host of others took AD down for a loss of 2 yards which forced Minnesota to punt. But it all started with Bennett’s penetration.

The Giants were believed to primarily be pursuing candidates with extensive head coaching experience, but it seems as if Eli Manning’s endorsement will push McAdoo over the top.

Elite Carl Soderberg Jersey Manning, who was visibly emotional when Tom Coughlin resigned earlier this month, reportedly lobbied ownership to bump McAdoo up to head coach. Fox Sports’ Mike Garafolo says Manning expressed a strong desire to the Maras for the offense to remain the same, which means McAdoo was the logical choice to replace Coughlin.

“I’m excited,” Eli Manning said about McAdoo’s promotion. “I’m excited for the Giants organization and for the team. I think Coach McAdoo is a great coach, a great teacher, and will be a great leader of this team. I’m excited to continue to work with him and grow within this offense, and get this organization back where it needs to be.”

McAdoo joined the Giants’ staff in 2014 after seven years as an offensive coordinator in Green Bay. He coached tight ends with the Packers until the 2011 campaign when he made the switch to QB coach. Aaron Rodgers thrived under McAdoo’s tutelage, posting a 106.9 passer rating in those two seasons.
