On Sunday, Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. went on ESPN and threw some shade at the team’s longtime QB Eli Manning.
“I don’t know,” Beckham said when asked if there was an issue at quarterback. “Like I said, I feel like he’s not going to get out the pocket. He’s not — we know Eli’s not running it. But is it a matter of time issue? Can he still throw it, yeah, but 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, you know, I want to go over the top of somebody.”
It appears like Odell isn’t the only Giants player frustrated with Manning. Before today’s Thursday Night game against the Eagles ESPN released a report that reveals that several players on the team are frustrated with Manning’s play.
Behind closed doors, several Giants players have expressed frustration with Manning’s performance, according to sources. One player specifically commented recently about Manning’s inability to do anything against Cover 2 and zone defenses.
Manning threw and interception early in tonight’s game vs the Eagles and it seems like Giants fans are fed up with him as well.
Things have gotten so bad for Eli that he got booed off the field after he threw another check down pass on third down.
