Things got a little heated during Ben McAdoo’s weekly appearance on New York’s WFAN Mike Francesca show.
The legendary New York radio host, who’s been known for his obnoxious behavior went after Ben McAdoo for not publicly criticizing his star receiver Odell Beckham Jr.
Now, the third year wide receiver has been brought under heavy scrutiny over the last couple of days after the sideline antics and unsportsmanlike conduct penalty he received during Monday’s 24-10 loss to the Vikings, but when McAdoo was asked about it, he didn’t seem interested in publicly criticizing his player.
Francesa asked if McAdoo had any issues with Beckham’s behavior:
“All discussions between Odell and I, they stay private between ourselves,” the first-year head coach said. “Listen, I’ve got this young man’s back.”
At one point, Francesa said to the coach, “I think you guys are doing a lousy job with him.” Francesa added, “I’m going to gather that you condone his behavior.”
McAdoo responded: “If you’re willing to put words into my mouth, then you can put words in my mouth.”
A lot has been said over Odell Beckham Jr’s antics on the sidelines, but one thing is clear, his coaches and teammates have his back.
