Beckham, however, may need to offer a second apology after more of his ESPN aired on Sunday with him further doubting Eli Manning, his role in the offense and his happiness in NY. “It’s just everything. It’s just everything”, Beckham said. “Like I said, I feel like he’s not going to get out the pocket”. Along the way, every team goes through stuff and we’re in it.
“I haven’t been in this situation”, he said.
Yet another loss on Sunday, 33-31 at the Carolina Panthers, dropped the Giants to 1-4.
Beckham spoke to ESPN’s Josina Anderson and was critical of Eli Manning in the interview that aired on Sunday morning. They didn’t intend to either.
Coach Pat Shumur knows his team as well as anyone and is optimistic the Giants will be able to move on fast and set their sights on finding the elusive win No. 2.
Lil Wayne did take to Instagram on Tuesday to express his displeasure with some of the reaction to the interview. If the team had any thoughts of throwing Hail Mary to Beckham, that plan was thrown out the window because the receiver had his own plans that didn’t involve being on the field. On his route, Beckham slowed to nearly face Manning rather than running hard through his route towards the end line. However valid his comments may have been, Beckham showed a lack of maturity in calling out the veteran who has been under center in NY for years and also helped get the receiver a mega-deal this offseason. Beckham’s attitude rubbing off on teammates, maybe? Grant showcased that speed on a 70-yard punt return that went for a touchdown.
Like his brother, who turned serious in congratulating Brees, Eli went on to say he thinks his relationship with Beckham is fine and he was glad the star receiver had addressed the team the night before their game against the Panthers.
“There has to be some urgency”, said Manning, who threw for 326 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions Sunday. We can play nice, or we don’t have to play nice. Here we were, thinking reaching 30 points was going to be the Holy Grail for them, and it was not the case.
“Nobody in here likes to lose”.
On the first, Manning simply did not see safety Mike Adams, a bad play by the quarterback.
Sunday’s game against the Panthers was no different, as Barkley racked up 129 all-purpose yards, with two touchdowns – against a stout defense, no less.
“It was a big week for us”.
Beckham has taken a lot of heat for his comments but said he doesn’t regret anything he said. Gano’s 63-yard field goal set a new franchise record for the Panthers as well as tying for the second-longest field goal in National Football League history.
