After the Giants loss to the Eagles on Thursday, reports surfaced saying Odell Beckham Jr. had to be escorted to the locker room by members of the team’s staff after he was spotted banging his head on a garage door and “growling to himself.”
The video shows us that, yes Beckham was upset, but news about a meltdown may have been a little excessive. You be the judge:
Beckham had a huge game, 11 catches for 150 yards, but it was a ball he didn’t catch late in the game that likely set him off in this way. He was unable to come up with a catch on a deep pass, a play that could have propelled the Giants to victory.
Just a few minutes after the “incident” Beckham addressed reporters with professionalism and even optimism about the future.
“I just didn’t make the play,” Beckham told reporters. “It was where it needed to be, I just needed a little more gas in me to go get it.”
