The New York Giants are imploding.
They're 1-5 after the Eagles beat them up last Thursday night for their third straight loss and it looks like the Giants are in the middle of the same type of meltdown that led to the firing of Ben McAdoo before the end of last season.
The maestro of mayhem this season has been Odell Beckham Jr., who had that now infamous interview next to Lil' Wayne when he said the team needed to play with more heart and seemed to pin some of the offensive struggles on Eli Manning.
Now, the Giants' owner is pouring some gasoline on this dumpster fire.
John Mara on Odell Beckham: "I think he needs to do a little more playing and a little less talking."— Judy Battista (@judybattista) October 16, 2018
Mara said he did not talk to Beckham after his ESPN interview, saying he thinks enough people talk to him. Said he wishes he would make his headlines on the field instead of off.— Judy Battista (@judybattista) October 16, 2018
I'm sure OBJ, whom I watched pace the sideline like a crazy person and leave for halftime early a few days ago, will take this well. He's a very reasonable and sane person.
At the start of this season, there were actually people who thought the Giants would be a challenger for the NFC East crown. They obviously have some real talent at several positions, but they did last year too. Again, they're a complete mess.
The Giants are 1-5 through six games for the second consecutive season. Last year, they went 3-13. That seems on the table again in 2018.
Mara touched on a few other subjects too. One was Manning.
Mara, at the owners' meeting, on Eli: "When you're 1-5, it generally means everybody has to play better." Said he will leave it up to coaches whether to eventually play Kyle Lauletta.— Judy Battista (@judybattista) October 16, 2018
Mara also said he's "embarrassed" that the Giants are 1-5. I suppose that's a good thing for the Giants. Because they're an embarrassing team right now.
It just doesn't look like that's going to change anytime soon.
