The Giants could be in four-down territory when it comes to their offensive coordinator.

Packers quarterbacks coach Ben McAdoo was the latest to interview for the job, finally making his way to New Jersey Monday after travel glitches prevented a weekend get-together. But as of Monday night, the Giants had yet to make any decisions about the hire and might have to go deeper down the list to fill the position. There are no other known candidates who have scheduled interviews with the Giants.

McAdoo was the fourth to meet with the Giants. He followed former Giants staffer Mike Sullivan, former Texans QB coach Karl Dorrell and former Titans offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains. None of them apparently has said what coach Tom Coughlin, GM Jerry Reese and co-owner John Mara want to hear before handing over the keys to the offense.

Several players have expressed support for Sullivan, but it's been a week since his interview and no decision has been made. Last week, Mara said he believes it is time for a change in the team's offense. Sullivan, considered the early front-runner, is the candidate who most represents the status quo.
