Odell Beckham Jr. is frustrated with the 1-3 start that the New York Giants have mustered. So frustrated, in fact, that the star wide receiver is now calling out his entire team for a lack of effort.
According to Ralph Vacchiano of SNY, Beckham questioned his team’s desire to win:
“I would say it’s our heart, it’s our energy, it’s what we bring when we line up before the game,” Beckham said. “A lot of it has to do with the energy that we have, that we don’t bring every single day. And you know me, I’m a passionate, energetic person. I always have to have that. If I don’t it’s going to be a problem for me … We just need to play with some heart.”
The Giants have one of the lowest ranked offenses in the entire NFL, despite having a two-time Super Bowl winning quarterback in Eli Manning, and elite wide receiver in Beckham, and a No. 2 overall pick running back in Saquon Barkey. They are averaging just 18.2 points per game so far in 2018.
“How come we can’t throw the ball for more than 20 yards?” Beckham said. “How come we don’t attempt or try to throw the ball for more than 20 yards? Those are questions that we have to figure out.”
Beckham has no touchdowns so far this season. The Giants currently sit at the bottom of the NFC East, although there is still plenty of time to turn the season around. They travel to Carolina on Sunday to play the Panthers.
