Eli Manning Takes A Shot At His Wide Receiving Core For Their Trip To Miami

A lot of drama has surrounded New York Giants wide receivers Odell Beckham Jr., Roger Lewis, Victor Cruz, and Sterling Shepard for their recent trip to Miami. Much backlash arose when photos and videos were leaked of these three partying early Monday morning at Miami’s Liv Night Club after their 19-10 win over the Washington Redskins. It was also reported that they were with celebrity musicians Trey Songz and Justin Bieber at points during the night.

After a long night, the crew took a trip out on a boat for the remainder of the day.

Many have criticized this New York Giants receiving core; saying this trip was completely out of line as they have one of the biggest games of their career this Sunday against the Green Bay Packers in the wild card round of the NFC playoffs.

Beckham commented on the situation on Wednesday by explaining:

“Right now, I’m really more focused on the Packers and Giants. So any of those questions, when y’all want to sit down and have little side to side we can do that after the playoffs.”

When reporters continued to ask and press him about this trip he restated his original stance:

“Like I said we’re focused on the Packers and Giants, so anything else doesn’t really bother me.”

While OBJ remains indifferent about the situation, Giants quarterback Eli Manning took a humorous approach to it. Instead of commenting on how they should be more focused on the upcoming game like many others have, he questioned their wardrobe.

Ironically, Manning has a point. He questioned why his receiving core were wearing jeans, boots, and no shirt. It’s certainly a very unusual wardrobe combination for the beautiful climate of Miami.

With all the heat these young wide receivers have received, they have done a good job dealing with it and have said all the right things.

The bottom line is that these athletes are human just like us. They do what they want in their lives and we do what we want in ours. Who has the right to tell them how to live their lives?

They want to have fun just like we do and that’s exactly what they were doing. This would be an issue if they showed up to practice hungover or not as focused as they usually are. However, they took this trip on a day when no team events were taking place. Most importantly, they showed up ready to go on Tuesday for their first practice in preparation for the Green Bay Packers.

We will see how this trip effects the Giants when they make the trip to Lambeau Field to take on the red hot Green Bay Packers at 4:40 p.m. on Fox.
