The Giants got rolled by the Rams 51-17. At halftime, the score was just 27-10. Not close, either, but in the realm of possibility that the Giants could catch up.
A reporter asked head coach Ben McAdoo what he said at halftime to inspire the team. Here was a chance for McAdoo to show off; though his team is 1-7, he could convince the press that he at least had a good halftime speech.
McAdoo’s speech, per his response, was: “Um.”
Anyway, the next question was about the Giants giving up a touchdown on third and 33.
