During the "Tiki and Tierney" radio show Friday, former New York Giants running back Tiki Barber had some interesting comments about former LSU wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr.

Tiki compared Beckham's antics to those of Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant and called him a “look-at-me” player. Per TheBigLead:

“What I want for Odell is to take that emotion and channel it into something positive. I know it’s hard because he’s not a running back where if you get upset emotionally, you go pound somebody (you’re blocking) or you stick it to a defender. But how many targets does he get in a game? Ten? And you run 60 plays? So there’s a large portion of the game where you’re just not relevant to the outcome. But I would love to see him find a way to channel it into something positive, even if it’s just yelling to encourage his teammates. Don’t go off by yourself.

“He’s a look-at-me player. If he’s balling, nobody cares. But as soon as you start losing, as soon as you start drifting a little bit — and it feels like the Giants are vulnerable to a little bit of drift right now — they have to lock it in. Ben McAdoo and Mike Sullivan, the offensive coordinator, they got to lock him in. They can’t allow him to just get up and say, ‘I’m going to be who I am. I’m going to do what I want to do.’ No, you’re part of a team, buddy. You’re a good player. You’re a great player. People love you because of who you are and how you behave and how you act and the touchdowns and the celebrations. But you’re part of a team. And if you don’t recognize that, then somewhere down the line, you will not be part of the team.”

O'Dell has been whiney like this since Newman. Go watch his old tape. One thing goes bad and he can't let it go.
