An innocent wall apparently has paid the price for Odell Beckham Jr.’s nightmare debut in the NFL playoffs.
The New York Giants wide receiver reportedly punched a hole in a wall at Lambeau Field on Sunday following his team’s loss to the Green Bay Packers in the NFC wild-card round.
This is the damage Beckham allegedly caused, Newsday’s Neil Best reported, citing a member of Green Bay’s grounds crew:
No one saw Beckham punch the wall, but grounds crew member Greg Woulf heard it, according to the New York Post’s Bart Hubbuch. Woulf’s co-worker reportedly told Beckham to calm down, at which point the receiver allegedly replied by saying, “F–k off.”
Beckham then went into the Giants’ locker room and banged his head against a locker, according to ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio.
This all amounts to a bad look for Beckham, who caught four passes for just 28 yards in the Giants’ 38-13 defeat. He also dropped multiple passes that would have changed the trajectory, and perhaps the outcome, of the game.
The poor performance comes on the heels of Beckham’s postgame growling on Dec. 23 following the Giants’ loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 16. Beckham also was among those spotted partying on a boat in Miami on the Giants’ off-day last Monday.
We get it: Beckham doesn’t like losing. But walls also don’t like being punched.
