Giants offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo defends play-calling

New York Giants offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo defended his play-calling during a 16-10 loss to the San Francisco 49ers where they unsuccessfull rad three straight fade patterns.

"Each time, we liked the matchup," McAdoo told reporters. It's a league of matchups. If we throw it a little bit better, protect it a little bit better and make the plays we had been making in the past, we're singing a little different tune.

"At the same point in time, I'm not going to stand here and apologize for the play-calling. I have faith in the perimeter players to go up and make those plays 1-on-1. If we go up and have the same set of plays, in the same circumstance, I'll take those matchups any day."

McAdoo said he won't change his approach.

"I think that I will take those matchups any day of the week," McAdoo said. "I will take them last week, I will take them again this week. I have confidence and faith in those guys that they will go up and make the play."
