"[Beckham] needs to control his emotions better and become less of a distraction to himself and to his teammates," McAdoo said Monday on a conference call with reporters. "It's our job to help him with that process and maturing." - Via ESPN Jordan Raanan
I completely agree with everything Coach McAdoo said right there, Odell needs to keep his emotions in check and not throw hissy fits on the sideline when things aren't going his way. With that being said, I do love how Odell plays with so much passion, you rarely that find that in players nowadays, but sometimes he lets it go too far and it starts effecting the team. Now, Odell was wrong, but Coach McAdoo this is a two way street, you're the guy that is supposed to make sure this kid has his emotions in check. You think this shit happens on team coached by Belichick, I don't think so. McAdoo has to get this team more disciplined, Odell might've been making a ruckus on the sidelines, but the Giants also had a 11 penalties, that's a sign on a very undisciplined football team. Mind you, a few of those penalties were unnecessary roughness calls that were blatantly malicious and had nothing to with the actual plays going on, one of them ended up costing us a blocked punt. Weston Richburg got ejected for getting two unnecessary roughness penalties, that's just embarrassing, and we lost our starting center for basically an entire quarter so that didn't help our cause. Ben McAdoo you can say all you want about Odell acting up, but you're the coach, no one else is going to fix that issue besides you and him. So thank you captain obvious, Odell needs to stop acting like a diva, look at yourself in the mirror though, you need to do a better job being a head coach. I know this is only his third game but come on now, the team hasn't had a well rounded game where we've played well in all three phases yet. McAdoo is a young inexperienced head coach so I'll give him room for mistakes, something needs to start working soon though because this roster is too talented to not be in the playoffs.
