Giants owner John Mara said today about Beckham, “I wish he would create the headlines by his play on the field as opposed to what he says and what he does off the field. I think he needs to do a little more playing and a little less talking.”
Well it is hard to create headlines with play when Eli is your quarterback. Odell does need to be better. His muffed punt against the Panthers ended up causing them the game. In a ideal world, the Maras would stay out of player personnel decisions, but they are paying Odell 5 million more dollars a year than that Tom Brady guy gets paid. Seems like John Mara is dissing a guy that he agreed to pay all this money.
Lawerence Taylor said this in 1987, “For me, crazy as it seems, there is a real relationship between wild, reckless abandon off the field and being that way on the field.” Odell’s offseason video of a stripper doing cocaine in his bed was (pretty awesome) a huge red flag. LT, the best Giant of all-time, knows a thing or two about that life. OBJ needs to get his act together or he’s gonna be a problem even when he is done playing football. It seems Odell doesn’t have his priorities right and it has affected the Giants product on the field for the past two seasons. The Patriots will most likely trade a 4th round pick for Odell in the near future..
