Sunday, after their Wild Card game loss against the Green Bay Packers, one of ESPN’s reporter, Sal Paolantonio reported that he saw Odell Beckham, Jr. banging his head against a door.
And there are alleged allegations that Beckham also punched a hole in the wall of the locker room at Lambeau Field.
One of the ground crew members told Sal Paolantonio that they heard someone hitting the wall… that’s the wall that is also adjacent to the interview room.
The wall hitting happened after Odell’s post-game interview was over. The Giants people and the Packers spokesman both had no comment to give on the hole in the wall.
“These are the learning experiences, as tough as they are, ” Beckham said. “This is what you stand on and grow from. It sucks. There is no way to put it. It sucks. It is a horrible feeling.”
Beckham finished the game with four catch for 28 years on 11 targets. He dropped a couple of passes, one that could have been a touchdown in the first quarter.
“I’m sure it’s going to be a long offseason,” Beckham said. “At the end of the day, you just have to take it and you have to grow. You have to learn from it and find ways not to have this feeling again.”
In 2008, a member of the Chicago Bears punched a hole in the wall at Lambeau Field and they were billed for repairs.
Now, the question is, is the Packers organization going to send a bill to the Giants for the hole.
Eli Manning had this to say on Odell’s behavior, “Odell is an emotional guy. He was disappointed. I saw him with his head down and disappointed. There are a lot of guys that will shed a tear or two. When you lose a playoff game — and for a lot of guys it’s their first time in the playoffs — to kind of have the season abruptly end like that is a hock. Everyone handles it differently.”
