Giants Beckham: "I don't want to be held back anymore"

New York Giants' Saquon Barkley runs for a touchdown against the Carolina Panthers in the second half of an NFL football game in Charlotte N.C. Sunday Oct. 7 2018

Asked whether there were an issue at QB - an obvious chance to stand up for the much-criticized Manning - Beckham offered up a reply of, "I don't know". 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.

And he had a breakout game against Carolina, catching eight passes for 138 yards and a touchdown and throwing a 57-yard TD pass to running back Saquon Barkley after receiving a lateral from his quarterback.

Sunday's game against the Panthers was no different, as Barkley racked up 129 all-purpose yards, with two touchdowns - against a stout defense, no less. "I didn't think it was that far when we went out there", Gano commented after the game.

"How do we beat this?" "I feel like, he's not going to get out of the pocket". The Giant offense had been struggling up to that point, which in turn meant Beckham was as well.

"I don't regret anything", he said. Regardless, Beckham knows he needs to come up with that ball. Naturally, he then went out and did everything for himself on Sunday. All the top receivers get the ball that they should, and if they don't, they say something about it. "Like I said, there's nothing that is going to come in between my brothers, my teammates. And if they don't, they say something about it".

The Giants are now 1-3 on the season and face the 2-1 Carolina Panthers on the road Sunday.

Staff and management of the New York Giants, particularly head coach Pat Shurmur, were reportedly "livid" at some of the things said by Odell Beckham Jr.

Beckham said earlier in the week this was their opportunity to "reshape the season".

At the same time, the timing of Beckham Jr.'s latest outburst was a major surprise, given he signed a five-year extension worth $95 million less than two months ago, which made him the league's highest-paid receiver. He also tossed a score to Saquon Barkley to help kick-start New York's offense.

"I don't know", Beckham began. I just like that atmosphere, but this is where I'm at. "I don't have time to keep doing these videos for you".

The Giants were dealt a heartbreaking defeat to drop them to 1-4, which will be a tough pill to swallow heading into a short week as they prepare to play the Eagles on Thursday.

So, Beckham was asked on ESPN this morning if the Giants have a problem at quarterback.
