Beckham found himself matched up with Bills cornerback Sephon Gilmore for most of the afternoon. After the game, Gilmore talked to the Buffalo News about matching up against Beckham and his opinion on why the second year wide receiver acted the way he did.
“I don’t know what’s up with him," Gilmore said to Tyler Dunne of the Buffalo News. "He acts like nobody’s supposed to hit him and you’re supposed to let him catch the ball. He’s weird. He gets mad when you play physical with him. He’s weird.
“He’s different. It’s kind of like you’re playing your little brother and he gets mad at you for being too physical with him — throwing a tantrum. I’m like, ‘Man, we’re playing football. It’s a physical game. … He’s a prima donna. He feels like he’s on top of the world and nobody’s supposed to do anything to him."
What does Beckham think about those comments?
Coughlin said Beckham is an emotional guy, really likes the way he's been blocking #Giants
Based on Coughlin’s comments, it seems unlikely at this time that Beckham will be handed down a suspension or any further discipline from the team. The Giants WR will look to put this incident behind him in a favorable Week 5 matchup against a 49ers pass defense that has struggled to generate pressure and hold up in pass coverage on the back end.
