Giants head coach Pat Shurmur was "absolutely livid" after WR Odell Beckham made controversial comments in an interview with ESPN's Josina Anderson, Fox Sports' Jay Glazer reported on Sunday.
Shurmur summoned Beckham to his office and told him that it is up to him to "make it right" with his teammates. The Giants' star wide receiver apologized to the team for what he said was a "wrong message" and that it "won't happen again."
During Beckham's interview with Anderson, he said he "I don't know" if the Giants have a quarterback problem and that he feels he has been "outschemed."
The 25-year-old Beckham also said he does not feel that he has been "in the place where I feel like I can really go out and do what I'm capable of doing. I don't get 20 targets like some other receivers."
Entering Sunday's game, Beckham had logged 31 catches on 45 targets for 331 yards and no touchdowns. His longest catch was a 30-yard pass.
Beckham further said that while Manning can still throw, "it's been pretty safe and it's been, you know ... cool catching shallow [routes] and trying to take it to the house. But I'm. ... I want to go over the top of somebody."
