The New York Giants
They've had one winning season since OBJ arrived in 2014, and that's a frustrating thing for one of the most electric players in the entire game. But OBJ bizarrely sitting next to Lil Wayne and publicly venting in an interview with Josina Anderson about his uncertainty regarding the team that just signed him to a five-year, $90 million extension with $65 million guaranteed probably wasn't the best idea.
Odell Beckham, asked in that ESPN interview, if the Giants have an issue of quarterback, smiles and answers "Uh, I don't know ..."— Ralph Vacchiano (@RVacchianoSNY) October 7, 2018
What's holding Odell Beckham back? "I just having been in the situation. I haven’t been in the place where I feel like I can really go out and do what I’m capable of cdoing. I don’t get 20 targets like some other receivers." https://t.co/SYzRAEts0j— Ralph Vacchiano (@RVacchianoSNY) October 7, 2018
Beckham is not wrong with his assessment. Giants fans and football analysts can all see that the offense is broken. But how the hell is having a personal vent session on national television and thus inviting more negative media attention to an already struggling team going to help both himself and the organization?
So is Odell Beckham happy in New York? "That’s a tough question," he said. "Honestly I love seeing the sunshine all the time. I love being in LA and that atmosphere. … This is where I’m at. This where I’ll be at."— Ralph Vacchiano (@RVacchianoSNY) October 7, 2018
It appears as if this season is turning into 2017 all over again for Giants fans. The team is one loss away to the Panthers from the media hailstorm raining down hard. OBJ is an admirably passionate football player with an inspiring will to win, but this session is one that just put an unnecessary gauntlet on the team no matter the intention
