718area has new update 33 minutes ago Carolina Panthers expected to hire Ben McAdoo as offensive coordinator, per report
Photo by Jim McIsaac/Getty Images McAdoo gets his second chance Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network is reporting that the Carolina Panthers are expected to hire former New York Giants head coach Ben McAdoo to be their next offensive coordinator. The #Panthers are expected to hire former #Giants HC and ex-#Packers OC Ben McAdoo as their offensive coordinator, sources say. They need to work out the contract, but there aren’t expected to be issues. McAdoo is back as an OC, where he initially rose to prominence.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) January 21, 2022 This will be McAdoo’s second stint as an offensive coordinator. He was initially hired to the position as the New York Giants’ offensive coordinator by Tom Coughlin in 2014. At the time, McAdoo was the Green Bay Packers’ quarterback’s coach and was brought in after Kevin Gilbride retired. McAdoo saw initial success as the Giants’ OC, with the team fielding the NFL’s 13th ranked offense in 2014 (up from 28th in 2013), and the 7th ranked offense in 2015. Both years, the Giants ranked in the Top 10 in passing offense and were tied with the Patriots for passing touchdowns in 2015. (Granted, that also coincided with Odell Beckham Jr’s meteoric rise as a rookie.) McAdoo was promoted to head coach following Tom Coughlin stepping away after the 2015 season. However, the Giants’ offense plummeted back to Earth in 2016 and McAdoo was fired in the midst of a disastrous 2017 season. McAdoo was out of football until 2020, when he was hired as the Jacksonville Jaguars’ quarterbacks coach. He then reunited as a special assistant to Dallas Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy in 2021. This is particularly notable as the Giants will have a home game against the Panthers at some point in the 2022 season.

718area has new update 1 hour ago Today on Pinstripe Alley - 1/22/22
Photo by Lachlan Cunningham/Getty Images Start off your Saturday with a rundown. The days leading up to the next MLB-players’ union meeting are filled with more football, so if that’s your thing then there’s plenty to keep you occupied until then. The divisional round should feature plenty more enticing games this week, with some notable matchups like Bills-Chiefs and Rams-Bucs on the table. Today’s games will be the 49ers heading to Green Bay fresh off their upset of Dallas, and the Bengals going to Tennessee to take on the Titans. If football isn’t your thing though, then no worries because this is a baseball site — and we’ve got plenty of baseball to discuss. Estevão leads off by adding Didi Gregorius to his list of underappreciated Yankees, and Josh follows with a breakdown of how the NFL’s disappointing Super Wild Card weekend bodes poorly for MLB. Jon brings us the second half of his Dream Team Yankees roster, Peter argues that an MLB-version of Bird Rights could be a key to defrosting the lockout negotiations, and Matt forms the youngest Yankees lineup of all time to close out the day. Fun Questions: 1. Which Yankee from the post-dynasty years would you say is the most underrated? 2. Do you think delaying the season is a foregone conclusion, or just a possibility right now?
