New York Giants head coach Ben McAdoo has a unique way of motivating his team. The 39-year-old likes to show players clips from TV and movies to inspire them. Before the season started, he screened a gnarly scene from Game of Thrones in which Ramsay Bolton is eaten alive by his dogs. “He showed a dog attacking somebody, and basically that’s our mindset,” one player said at the time.
In the first five games of the season, the Giants have been more Bolton than dog though. So after a 2-3 start, McAdoo is opting to lighten the mood a little. So he busted out the Step Brothers DVD and skipped ahead to the scene where two middle aged men get bullied by some asshole kids.
Why? “Basically he said was, ‘They’re gonna try to come in and try to bully us,’” Giants receiver and kick returner Dwayne Harris told the New York Post. "We’re at our house, and we gotta come out and just play like it's our house."
