Giants coach Ben McAdoo was aware of Odell Beckham Jr.’s proposal to the kicking net Sunday and said Monday that “we need to keep our focus on the ball game.”
When McAdoo referenced “bad football” that the Giants must “eliminate,” he cited Beckham’s unsportsmanlike conduct penalty specifically as unacceptable, along with a few other glaring Giants errors.
McAdoo was seen on TV speaking to Beckham on the sideline shortly after that mistake by his star wide receiver, and the coach said he explained, in no uncertain terms, that Beckham had to stop.
“He came up to me right after, we had discussion, we can’t have it,” McAdoo said. “He knows that and he wanted to fire up our kick coverage team and defense. (But) he knows we can’t have it.”
As far as discipline goes, though, left tackle Ereck Flowers skated free of any on-field consequences for shoving a reporter in the locker room in Green Bay in Week 5. Flowers was not docked even a single snap.
Giants coach Ben McAdoo tells Odell Beckham that the Giants ‘can’t have’ incidents like his unsportsmanlike conduct penalty Sunday.
“We decided to handle all the discipline in house,” McAdoo said, refusing to explain further.
Asked if there was any discipline imposed in any form, McAdoo said: “Everything was handled in-house and we’re gonna keep it in-house.”
He said he has received “no feedback” on the NFL investigation into the Flowers matter.
The Giants (3-3) are preparing to fly to London on Thursday evening for a Sunday game at Twickenham Stadium against the L.A. Rams (3-3).
