That's an interesting idea. I wish we knew exactly what had happened. Based on McAdoo's communications with the media and how the team seems to have reacted to his leadership, he doesn't seem like the best communicator. So it's definitely plausible that McAdoo went up the chain with "hey, maybe we should think about playing Geno this week if things aren't going well" and made it sound one way to ownership and then communicated it to Eli as "we're going with Geno in the 2nd half." Would make sense because it seems like McAdoo wanted to play Geno to prove the offensive struggles were Eli's fault.
