McAdoo: 'Pretty Natural' For Me To Call Plays As First-Year Head Coach

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- Giants head coach Ben McAdoo doesn't think calling the offensive plays during the game is affecting his ability as head coach.

Speaking to WFAN's Mike Francesa, McAdoo said it's the best way for him to keep his "pulse on the team."

"And really the best way to dictate the game. Instead of sitting back and have another hand in managing the game, I think you have the best of both worlds. We have a chance to dictate the outcome of the game," explained McAdoo.

McAdoo added that it's not too much for him to handle as a first-year head coach.

"I think if it's your first year as a play caller and first year as a head coach, I think that would be a lot to handle," said McAdoo. "But with a few years under my belt calling plays and the pedigree and the feedback and the communication I've had with other coaches in the league who have done it, I think it's pretty natural."

The Giants are last in the NFC East at 2-3 heading into Sunday's game against the Baltimore Ravens.
