"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. I was nervous to get up there and - these are your brothers you see every day; but once you're up there in front of all of 'em, it's a little nerve-racking.
Odell Beckham Jr. made headlines for his critical comments about the New York Giants' fledgling offense prior to Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers, but the star wideout said he has "no regrets" about speaking out after the 33-31 loss.
While the Giants lost to the Panthers in the final seconds Sunday, Beckham and Co. are still viewing their first 30-point game since the 2015 season as a step in the right direction. "And there's no way to - how do we beat this?" "I feel like some of those plays right after I was getting myself going was some of my best stuff".
Manning and the Giants' offense rarely stretches the field, opting for the safe, quick, short throw. "We've had these conversations and like I said, we're all moving forward onto Philly". He also caught four passes for 81 yards receiving and two touchdowns.
Manning has thrown 12 passes 20 or more yards this season, according to ESPN, completing just three of them. And not to say that's not fun, but it's like I want some easy touchdowns too. "And if they don't, they say something about it".
Beckham then seemed to question the play-calling of first-year head coach Pat Shurmur.
In a game loaded with ups and downs, the Panthers - behind the leg of kicker Graham Gano - escaped Bank of America Stadium with a dramatic 33-31 victory over the Giants on Sunday. "It's just everything. It's just everything", Beckham said.
During training camp, he signed a five-year contract extension worth $95 million, with $65 million guaranteed, ending preseason drama between the two sides.
"I don't know", Beckham began. "We just have to go win some games". He did give up a few catches to wide receiver Devin Funchess, but also put a nice hit on Cam Newton that forced a fumble the Giants failed to recover. I felt very close as a team this Sunday, and that's the way that we have to play. I feel like I could score every quarter, if given the opportunity. The Giants run defense was shaky early in the game but really tightened as the game went along, especially in the fourth quarter.
