The internet ran wild last weekend after video emerged of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady apparently screaming at his offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels. The two had a brief heated exchange after Brady missed an open receiver on a passing play. After the little dust-up, the Patriots went on to win the game against Buffalo with conviction. A report by Yahoo! Sports relayed a lot of the facts used in this article.

One person critical of the whole exchange was Odell Beckham Jr. of the New York Giants. Beckham wondered aloud how it would be viewed if he were to pull the same antics with his coaches.

He feels while Brady gets a pass, he would be under far worse scrutiny. Even worse are the insinuations that there is a race factor involved with it.

Let's start with the resumes

All one really needs to do to view this whole situation from all angles is to check each player's resume. In one corner we have Brady, who is the five-time Super Bowl champion and MVP. A player who has never had a losing season and has led his team to a total of seven Super Bowls in his career. In the other corner is a player who has played in one playoff game where he lost and didn't play well.

What Beckham doesn't get is that Brady gets a pass because he has more than proven who he is as a player in the league. His resume is without comparison.

His work ethic and on-field successes since entering the league have more than endeared himself to the coaching staff and players. They respect his opinion and football acumen.

On the other hand, Beckham is known for making flashy, highlight reel catches. While entertaining, a few of his biggest catches came in games they lost.

He is also known for some pretty bizarre on-field antics of his own. The touchdown celebration where he acted like a peeing dog is one that sticks out. If he wants to be taken seriously like Brady, he has much growing up to do.

It has nothing to do with race

ESPN trotted out their on-air "talent" who examined the angle that the difference between the two players has to do with race.

It is an inflammatory statement to make, especially when there is just no supporting evidence to back it up. Beckham is failed by his lack of credentials in his short career. Trying to match resumes with Tom Brady is setting his sights a bit too high at this point.

It is honorable that Beckham is trying to be a leader within his organization. You should want your star players to seek out leadership roles. His only problem is his lack of understanding that his actions carry more weight than his words. If he truly wants to ascend to the type of leader that Tom Brady is, he needs to show it on and off the field with how he conducts himself.

Oh, and winning a few Super Bowls wouldn't hurt either.
