Giants WR Beckham fined $36000 for block

Giants WR Beckham fined $36000 for block

At least that's what former Giants defender Justin Tuck would do if he were the opposition. "Honestly, I know that all I care for is football".

"I dressed nicely to come here and get a 'W, '" Norman - who wore a nicely pressed and perfectly fitting burgundy suit to his postgame press conference - said. "I deal with him a lot because he is the umpire and he's spotting the ball, so we're talking about calls and whatnot". Today, they came up before the game and said, if you do anything, we're throwing you out of the game. "And we want to run the ball, we want to be balanced there's no question about it", Redskins Head Coach Jay Gruden said.

Norman largely played over Beckham throughout the first half, unlike when Washington played Pittsburgh and Dallas and made Norman cover a side of the field rather than the teams' No. 1 receivers.

Beckham's teammates seemed confused why he was going insane on the sideline and losing his cool in a tight game with the Redskins, a game the Giants ended up losing, 29-27. He showed some emotion on the field after making two consecutive catches against Norman in the fourth quarter, but he seemed agitated at times on the sideline.

The biggest news either player made on the field was Beckham's 200th career catch, the quickest ever (30 games). McAdoo has expressed regret for not doing more in that instance and he said he was more involved in calming Beckham on Sunday. "It's our job to help him with that process".

Tuck wasn't surprised that McAdoo addressed the situation, even if it was an interesting approach to take it public. "Same as they always are", he said.

"I don't remember", Beckham said when asked if he was crying. Due to an injury to Donald Stephenson, Sambrailo stepped in to play right tackle for Denver and had a few miscues. These next four games; obviously you have two away games against some good teams. some really good teams. As I said earlier, those emotions can hurt a team negatively. "And obviously, he feels they did and he addressed it". Hussey wasn't prompted by the National Football League to deliver his lectures to the Giants' and Redskins' stars before the game. Clearly, they knew that the officials would have their eyes open more than ever. The Giants had a blocked punt by Romeo Okwara nullified with just over 11 minutes to play by a personal foul against Andrew Adams, who was added to the roster Saturday. "He and I had conversations on two different occasions".

Redskins punter Tress Way completed a 31-yard pass to Quinton Dunbar on a 4th-and-12 to extend a scoring drive into the fourth quarter and Hopkins, who earlier converted on field goals of 49, 33 and 45 yards, gave his team a 26-24 lead.

McAdoo obviously feels No. 1, in some kind of negative way.

But when the head coach needs to tell Beckham to tone it down, the negatives of the "distraction" outweigh the positives of the talent.

That's a problem, one the Giants must figure out how to solve before it becomes a weekly occurrence.
