The back-and-forth between New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. and management continues. Earlier this week, Giants owner John Mara called out his star for making headlines from talking instead of playing.

Now, Beckham Jr. has give his latest soundbite.

In a recent interview with SNY's Ralph Vacchiano, Beckham said the team needed to "start winning games" and called out the entire team - himself included.

"Everybody’s got to pick it up. I need to play better. I can’t say that I’ve had my best games. I can’t say I’ve done enough… We win games together, we lose games together."

Unsurprisingly, Beckham leads the Giants in targets, receiving yards, and receptions. He has one TD catch on the season.

New York is 1-5 on the season and struggling immensely. The public statement may or may not have Beckham's desired effect.

We'll probably find out for sure on Monday Night Football when the Giants take on the Atlanta Falcons.
