Odell Beckham Jr. Griped About Eli Manning's Lack Of Deep Throws

Giants Pat Shurmur on not throwing downfield'It's a false narrative

"We played the way that I know that our team is, so for the record, our team is tough, they play hard and I've got no issues with the way they play", he said. "Like I said, it helped me bring out the energy, I don't know a way around it but to get myself going". He threw it. With a little over six minutes left in the second quarter of the Giants' Week 5 game against the Carolina Panthers, Beckham threw a 57-yard touchdown pass to Saquon Barkley. Besides stopping Giant's rookie Saquon Barkley on the ground, the Panthers struggled to contain a weak passing game from Eli Manning.

"Like I said, I feel like he's not going to get out the pocket", Beckham told ESPN.

"How do we beat this?" However, the giants are 1-4, and Beckham has scored one touchdown this year.

Beckham, who said he does not regret anything he said in the interview, claimed the team has moved on, even saying he saw the loss Sunday as a step in the right direction. Regardless, Beckham knows he needs to come up with that ball. And not to say that's not fun, but it's like I want some easy touchdowns too. I watch everybody across the league. Thomas settled into a spot on his crossing route, but Newton led him with the ball instead, and threw it right to Jenkins. And they host the Eagles next - which should be interesting to say the least. Dallas (2-3) and Philadelphia (2-3) are tied for second with the Giants a game behind.

Beckham's comments in the interview were enough to draw outrage from coach Pat Shurmur.

Beckham said earlier in the week this was their opportunity to "reshape the season".

NBC analyst Rodney Harrison suggested Beckham shouldn't be criticizing his coach and his quarterback after signing a five-year extension in the offseason that could be worth up to $95 million. The QB suggested this week he'd rather check down than take a risk down the field. "I really don't think about a whole lot because I know the group in front of me is going to do its job well".

Another answer that was sure to rub some people the wrong way - particularly Giants fans and management - was his response to being happy in NY. "We played our asses off [Sunday]". So I'm just excited about the way we pulled together. "Obviously, I love seeing the sunshine all the time".

In the second-quarter, the Giants muffed a punt and Colin Jones recovered it in the end zone for a touchdown for Carolina.
