The Sports Junkies on Odell Beckham Jr.: 'He's a wreck'

The Sports Junkies on Odell Beckham Jr.: 'He's a wreck'

On Sunday, Odell Beckham Jr. caught seven passes for 121 yards against the Redskins. However, also on Sunday, Odell Beckham Jr. got into a fight — and lost — with a piece of sideline equipment, had to be calmed down by Eli Manning and, at one point, looked like he was in tears.

Following the contest, Giants head coach Ben McAdoo made some comments about Beckham needing to become less of a distraction. So, during their Wednesday show, the Sports Junkies gave their take on whether or not the star receiver's behavior was an issue.

To put it simply, they roughed him up like that piece of sideline equipment from MetLife Stadium. 

LURCH: Of course it was... How is it not? How is it not a distraction?

CAKES: He was fighting with the practice net. Of course it's a distraction.

LURCH: He was screaming at everybody on the Giants' sideline.

CAKES: He was crying on the sideline.

E.B.: Why is it always a receiver?

LURCH: That guy's a mess.

E.B.: It's always a receiver.

CAKES: Because they're high-strung divas.

LURCH: He's a wreck.

E.B.: Receivers are the worst.

LURCH: He's a great player, but man, what a wreck he is.
