GQ just released a big profile on drama queen Odell Beckham so he could vent all of his hurt feelings out to America. It turns out living life as the highest paid receiver in NFL history is a struggle. There’s a lot of silly drivel for us common people to sort out but here is the absolute dumbest:
“I felt disrespected, because I felt like I was a main reason at keeping that brand alive. They were getting prime-time games, still, as a 5-and-11 team. Why? Because people want to see the show. You want to see me play. That’s just real rap. I’m not sitting here like, “It’s because of me.” But let’s just be real. That’s why we’re still getting prime-time games.”
Yeah okay Odell. You were the only reason that the NEW YORK Giants played on primetime. It definitely wasn’t the whole playing for New York City thing, or Saquon Barkley, or the fact that 1/8 of your schedule was against America’s Team. Hey does anybody remember what time or against which opponent this breakout catch of his occurred or no?
It is very difficult to defend any Gettleman moves after the Daniel Jones disaster, but this is a hard one for any NFC East fan to objectively criticize. The talent is transcendent, but we’ve yet to see it outweigh his attitude baggage and tissue paper hamstrings. Maybe it was best for all parties involved to let OBJ reunite with Jarvis Landry and be his sidekick again. Mayfield is a whiner too but he can sling it way better than Mettenberger could ever dream of so we’ll see how brightly his light shines in Cleveland compared to New York City.
