The New York Giants owner is not happy with his star receiver drawing a 15 yard flag on Sunday. Odell Beckham is in the dog house.
The Giants lost a heartbreaking game in Philadelphia on Sunday. The Eagles kicked a game-winning 61-yard field goal as time expired to drop the team to 0-3.
Odell Beckham Jr., the Giants best player, had a monster day scoring two touchdowns, including the go-ahead score. However, it is his actions after the first touchdown that has his owner’s attention.
John Mara, the Giants co-owner, spoke about it with NFL Network.
“I do not want to get into a discussion about this, but I will say that I am very unhappy with Odell’s behavior on Sunday and we intend to deal with it internally,” Mara told NFL Network’s Kimberly Jones.
The behavior in question is after Beckham’s touchdown when he decided to crawl on all fours and pretend to use the bathroom like a dog. His behavior drew a 15-yard penalty on his team and apparently will leave him reprimanded.
“We should be talking about the way he played, he made some great plays in the ballgame, some tremendous plays, some game-changing plays,” McAdoo said during a Monday conference call. “I’d rather be talking about that than a celebration penalty. I mean, it’s real simple. I don’t want to kick off from the 20-yard line, it doesn’t help our team. It makes it tough on the players who are covering kicks.”
The team has not specified what the penalties they intend to levy against Beckham yet.
This is another instance of the star receiver being discussed for more than just his play on the field. There is no question his talent is there but these issues are becoming more common with Beckham every year.
