Good morning, New York Giants fans! Let's get right into your Morning Report for this Wednesday, an icy, snowy morning here in upstate New York.
A few Odell Beckham stats
Courtesy of the Giants PR department, here are a few Odell Beckham stats.
-- In the last six weeks, Beckham's 49 catches and 723 yards lead the NFL.
-- With 723 receiving yards in the last six games, Beckham joins Bill Groman of the 1960 Houston Oilers as the only rookies in NFL history with at least 700 receiving yards in a six-game span.
-- Beckham's team-leading 59 receptions are the highest total ever by a Giants rookie wide receiver (Bobby Johnson held the old mark with 48 in 1984). The team's rookie record for catches is 74 by tight end Jeremy Shockey in 2002. Beckham needs 16 catches - a bit more than five a game - to break the record; he is averaging 8.2 receptions in his last six games.
-- Beckham's 829 yards broke Johnson's former team rookie wide receiver mark of 795. Shockey owns the overall rookie record with 894 yards.
-- Beckham could be the first rookie to lead the Giants in catches, yards and receiving touchdowns since Johnson in 1984.
-- Despite missing four games, Beckham is tied with Carolina's Kelvin Benjamin for second among all rookie receivers with 59 catches. He trails only Miami's Jarvis Landry, his good friend and former LSU teammate, who has 63 catches. But while Beckham has four fewer catches than Landry, he has 256 more yards.
-- Beckham's 829 receiving yards are third among all rookies, behind Tampa Bay's Mike Evans (935 yards on 57 catches) and Benjamin (848).
-- He is both the first Giants player ever and the first rookie in NFL history with six consecutive games with 90 or more receiving yards.
-- Beckham has two games this season with at least 10 catches and 130 receiving yards. He is the first rookie in NFL history to do that.
Dominique Hamilton Added To Practice Squad
The Giants signed defensive tackle Dominique Hamilton to their practice squad. Last Tuesday, Hamilton was signed to the active roster off the practice squad. He was waived on Saturday, when the Giants signed defensive end/linebacker Paul Hazel, who played Sunday in Tennessee.

"Certain things like that, they’re going to take place," Rolle said Tuesday on his weekly paid WFAN spot. "Certain things like that, they’re going to happen. . . When it’s all said and done, some people are gonna make a big deal of it. Some people are gonna understand the situation. That’s not really my concern. What matters to me more than anything is our confidence."
Yeah, yeah, it was a silly moment in a blowout, but Coughlin, who has spent years preaching about team and responsibility and respect, wasn’t a fan. Coughlin has twice expressed his displeasure since Sunday, and Rolle, one of the voices of a rudderless squad that has spent all season playing with a lack of discipline, barely cared.
It’s no wonder that Coughlin has had trouble getting the Giants to play disciplined football when one of the team’s leaders thinks he can make like Bobby Boucher from "The Waterboy"when he pleases, with little regard for what his coach thinks.
