First, Francesa brought up comments by former Giants head coach Tom Coughlin, who claimed Beckham was “a distraction.” McAdoo deftly avoided answering his former boss’s criticisms. Then Francesa asked McAdoo about a report that Beckham could be benched or suspended by the team for his on-field actions. McAdoo categorically denied it.
Francesa proceeded to ask about Beckham’s in-game actions and it rapidly became apparent McAdoo was not thrilled with the line of questioning.
Francesa also brought up a list of Beckham’s past transgressions and McAdoo shot down every question. When the host claimed, “I think you guys are doing a lousy job with him,” then said, “I’m going to gather that you condone his behavior,” it was clear the 39-year-old head coach was done with the Beckham discussion.

Woof, that was awkward.
