New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. has been in the news a lot recently after his undisciplined behaviour during the first couple of games of the new season, especially when he played against Josh Norman and the Washington Redskins in week three, and the Minnesota Vikings in week four.

The 23-year-old hasn't been performing that well on the field either, with only 303 yards on 22 catches so far this season, and zero touchdowns as well to show for it. He's supposed to be one of the best receivers in the league but so far this year he hasn't shown it.

Yet, Giants head coach Ben McAdoo has not criticised Beckham publicly for his disruptive behaviour on the field, which has annoyed some people and caused one radio presenter to yell at the coach when he was on his radio show.

New York’s WFAN Mike Francesca yelled at the head coach during his radio show on earlier this week for his lack of public criticism of the wideout, saying according to DailySnark: "“I think you guys are doing a lousy job with him.”

He added: “I’m going to gather that you condone his behavior,” to which McAdoo responded with: “If you’re willing to put words into my mouth, then you can put words in my mouth.” As you can see in the video below, Francesca didn't hold back at all.

Beckham needs to start performing and discipline himself soon, otherwise, fantasy owners won't be the only ones dropping him from their lineups. He could find himself very quickly on the Giants bench if he doesn't clean up his act.

The Giants next game is this weekend against the Green Bay Packers. If he doesn't perform and once again has an anger problem on the field, expect more criticism of McAdoo's coaching to come his way.
