"I think (Beckham) needs to do a little more playing and a little less talking", Mara said, according to NFL.com's Judy Battista.

They are also reminiscent of remarks Mara made about Beckham when National Football League owners met in Orlando, Florida, in March, when the Giants co-owner said, "I'm exhausted of answering questions about Odell's behavior and what the latest incident is".

It was only a matter of time until Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr. lost his cool during a game, and Thursday's divisional showdown with the Eagles appeared to be that time.

During a wide-ranging interview with ESPN that included rapper Lil Wayne, Beckham vented his frustration over the team's slow start and the way the offense was functioning, and he even made comments that didn't reflect well on starting quarterback Eli Manning.

"Bro, I'm sorry that I'm not gonna apologize from my heart", Beckham said.

The Giants are 1-5 and will play the Falcons on Monday at 8:15 p.m. ET.

In fact, with the volume of conflicting rumors about Bell's eventual return, everyone should just act like he's never showing up. Further complicating matters is that Pittsburgh has a bye in Week 7, which means Bell may not be in any rush to come back.

One source who spoke with Giants players about Manning told La Canfora "let's just say a quarterback change wouldn't be unwelcome". "I can't stand up here and make any excuses about that". "I know he's the punching bag right now, but a lot of guys need to play better when you're 1-5". "I'm suffering just as much as our fans are, probably more". "Like I said, I feel like he's not going to get out the pocket".

Meanwhile, the Giants have signed former Denver Broncos receiver Bennie Fowler and placed linebacker Ray-Ray Armstrong (concussion) and wide receiver Cody Latimer (hamstring) on injured reserve.
