The Giants have been in the headlines a lot this season, but always for the wrong reasons. 

Star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. has been in the middle of most of the chaos. Just this week alone, he has been called out by Giants owner John Mara, his father responded with an Instagram post criticizing the owner, and a story about the receiver's dislike of water seemed to dominate Friday's practice.

And it's only Week 7...

Although Beckham and the Giants may continue to dominate the media cycle, Mike Francesa has heard enough from New York's $95 million star receiver.

"Here's where I am with Beckham. Enough. I don't want to hear about him anymore," Francesa said during Friday's open of Mike's On. "I don't want to hear. Go out and play. I don't want to hear today's stupid story about Beckham. About his likes, his dislikes, what he had for breakfast, where he's going this weekend, what movie he watched, how he slept last night, what he tells the other players in the huddle. Here's what I want him to do- be quiet and play football. This team is not all about one wide receiver. It never has been and it never will be. No football team is.

"The whole team has to play better. Eli has to play better. The offensive line has to play better. The defense has to do better. Everybody has to do better! The special teams has got to do better. The coach has got to do better. That's why they're 1-5. They're not 1-5 because of any one player. They're 1-5 because they don't play well as a group and they don't block, which is a bigger problem than any other problem they have is their offensive line. They have other problems, but that's their main problem. Until they fix that, they'll continue to have problems. "
