Giants S Landon Collins and DT Damon "Snacks" Harrison weren't pleased by a dangerous hit that sent WR Odell Beckham Jr. to the locker room in the team's 10-6 loss to the Cleveland Browns Monday night.
At the beginning of the second quarter, Beckham took a low hit from Browns CB Briean Boddy-Calhoun that sprained the wideout's ankle. Though it wasn't deemed an illegal hit, Collins and Snacks both took to Twitter to voice their opinions on the matter.
Collins not only believes the hit was dirty, but he couldn't play next to someone that would that.
Dude couldn't be next to me after that.. period....- LANDON COLLINS (@TheHumble_21) August 22, 2017
After the game, he said that Boddy-Calhoun had loads of time to make a safer tackle.
"The play wasn't a penalty, but it's something everyone knows...you don't do," Collins told the NY Daily News' Pat Leonard. "He had about 30 seconds to make a play on the ball in the air. He could've made a play on the ball, could've hit him high, but he chose a different route. I can't respect him."
Harrison noted that the hit was dirty, but he was more angry about how the Cleveland fans acted after play was stopped to look at Beckham. The stadium filled with 'boos', and he tweeted in disgust.
You don't "boo" somebody when they get hurt. Not cool Cleveland fans. Not cool at all. I know u guys were excited about winning but damn.- Damon Harrison (@BigDame900) August 22, 2017
He added another tweet after that saying, "I know y'all came to see him so come down to NJ if it's that serious. U just don't boo a injured player. Congrats on the win. Enjoy."
Beckham didn't have much to say about the hit after the game as he said, "I don't know. It's just football I guess. Preseason, so..." However, head coach Ben McAdoo thought Boddy-Calhoun couldn't have done anything else during the play.
"It's football," McAdoo said. "You can't hit a guy high, you can't hit a guy low. You try to hit him in the middle. It was one of those balls where Eli [Manning] had to drive it and he left his feet. It's a tough play for a DB."
Beckham finished the night with three catches for 37 yards.
