During The New York Giants 31 to 33 loss to The Carolina Panthers Superstar receiver Odell Beckham Jr thew a touchdown pass to Rookie Sensation Runningback Saquon Barkley. Does Beckham think he is a better Quarterback than 2 time Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning. Lil Wayne may think so, WHAT LIL WAYNE!?! What does Lil Wayne have to do with this ,well keep reading to find out.
Odell Beckham Jr earlier in NFL Week 5 was quoted saying “So a lot of it has to do with the energy that we (NY Giants) don’t have that we don’t bring every single day. And you know me. I’m a passionate, energetic person. I always have to have that. If I don’t, it’s gonna be a problem for me. And just playing with some heart. We (NY Giants) just need to play with some heart.” one can understand if his teammates and coaches would not be happy with those comments, but like any true team winning and unity is more than words that could have been misspoken. Well some times but in Odell’s case can we be sure, well that is where Lil Wayne comes in. Well Odell Beckham Jr did a one on one interview with ESPN’s Josina Anderson on Sunday NFL Countdown, oh yeah did I mention Lil Wayne was there. Let me quickly summarize the interview, what’s holding you back in struggling NY offense Odell “everything” is Eli the main problem Odell “I don’t know” are you happy with your current team Odell “that’s a tough question”. Wait a minute Odell you just signed the biggest contract for a receiver in NFL history let me tell me you exactly what that is if your not in the know.
The contract that the ink is still wet signed at the end of August worth $95,000,000 dollars over 5 years, he will make $21.4 million dollars this year. Its time to get together with the rest of the team and scapegoating Eli and stop doing interviews with Lil Wayne. By the way Lil Wayne added nothing useful to the interview. The season is still young and there is plenty of time to try to get things right and Odell Beckham Jr is a very important part. But Odell has to really want to do that and not tear down his team.
Just one last thing that was a very nice touch down pass that Odell threw in that game.
