Odell Beckham: Boat trip reaction did “a great job of creating distractions”

GREEN BAY, WI - JANUARY 8:  Jake Ryan #47 of the Green Bay Packers breaks up a pass intended for Odell Beckham #13 of the New York Giants in the fourth quarter during the NFC Wild Card game at Lambeau Field on January 8, 2017 in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

Wide receiver Odell Beckham was one of many Giants to wilt at Lambeau Field against the Packers on Sunday and he reportedly took out his frustrations on the stadium itself.

Neil Best of Newsday reports that members of the stadium’s grounds crew saw Beckham punch a hole in the wall outside the team’s locker room after the game. Sal Paolantonio of ESPN adds that Beckham was banging his head against the wall in the locker room.

All of that comes after a week that saw Beckham and teammates getting asked about a trip to Miami after the team won in Week 17. Beckham and Giants coach Ben McAdoo said there was nothing about the trip that would explain why Beckham and Sterling Shepard dropped passes in Sunday’s game, although Beckham did say that the reaction created a distraction.

“There was nothing that could connect seven days ago to today and how we came out and played and executed,” Beckham said, via USA Today. “There’s just nothing in the world. That’s not realistic. I think it did a great job of creating distractions for us, and it’s just unfortunate for us. That’s just the way this world is.”

A Google search of Tony Romo and Cabo is another way to see the way this world is, so Beckham probably hasn’t heard the last about boating in Miami. It may even wind up being enough to have him bang his head against the wall again.

    I wasn’t ablen to see the game, but I caught myself wondering how obj was handling the situation. After I saw the score late in the 4th

    As it turns out, exactly how I thought he might be handling it.

  3. Kim Jong Goodell says: Jan 8, 2017 9:28 PM

    But isn’t THAT exactly why people had a problem with it? Don’t do anything that will create a distraction. That’s it. NFL 101 stuff. Odell creates a distraction. Says the distraction played no role other than the distraction it created. What?!?! That’s the point…

  4. mindelm42 says: Jan 8, 2017 9:28 PM

    Giants got beat by a better team and Aaron Rodgers, not by any boat trip last Monday.

    OBJ really needs to grow up, its time!

    This guy has a whole LOT of talent on a football field.

    He’s also an immature whack job.

    As a neutral fan to this game, all I can say is that Mike McCarthy owes an awful lot of thank you’s to Aaron Rodgers for bailing him out the way he did. Otherwise, McCarthy should have been, and would have been, roasted over an open fire for that incredibly moronic and bone-headed call going for it on 4th and 1 on his own 42 not even half way through the third quarter and up by 11 points. After the stop, the Giants went right down and scored to go down by only 1. Afterwards, Rodgers got hot and saved the game. But that call was, by far, one of the stupidest I’ve ever seen, especially in a playoff game.

  11. cardsfann1 says: Jan 8, 2017 9:32 PM

    Dude is one big disappointment today… He makes those easy catches and the outcome of the game is different…

  12. pardonmyjake says: Jan 8, 2017 9:32 PM

    For all his talent Beckham is a walking talking distraction and he can often get Giants fans to bang their heads against walls too.

  14. fsubulldog says: Jan 8, 2017 9:33 PM

    OBJ took zero responsibility in his post game interview…which doesn’t surprise me one bit…

  15. Ugadogs21 says: Jan 8, 2017 9:33 PM

    The guy is a drama queen.

    OBJ = Hot house orchid

  16. mellimac says: Jan 8, 2017 9:33 PM

    Dear Odell,
    If you want to go for a boat ride, you have to join the Pats, then you can ride the duck boat all you want, with no distractions. Heck, you can even try to outdo Gronk, if that is possible….
    Regards…

  17. magicmtndan says: Jan 8, 2017 9:34 PM

    Just compare Antonio Brown to this clown and you can see the HUGE difference between the two.

    One is serious about his preparation and on-field performance and the other is a drama queen who doesn’t deliver.

    G-men went from a boat trip in Miami to a boat race in Lambeau.

  20. twinfan24 says: Jan 8, 2017 9:36 PM

    Catch the balls that hit you in the hands. If he did that, the trip wouldn’t be an issue, even if they still lost.

    If you don’t want someone to comment on your trip, wait until the offseason to take the trip. You know, like tomorrow.

  21. vancouversportsbro says: Jan 8, 2017 9:36 PM

    If the Giants ever want to win in the postseason, they should start by getting rid of this guy. Mike Singletary would be ranting about him if he coached the team

  22. buttfumbles says: Jan 8, 2017 9:36 PM

    Giants need to trade Odell ASAP, teams with diva WRs never win the super bowl.

  23. fartweasel says: Jan 8, 2017 9:36 PM

    I cant stand Green Bay but OB choked big time today. You cant win in the playoffs settling for field goals after dropped TDs and easy first downs. The guy is quickly becoming the new T Owens. Go Cowboys.

  24. tylawspick6 says: Jan 8, 2017 9:37 PM

    enjoy paying him a lot of money
    you idiots in ny created the monster

    and now you will pay

  25. eldoradogeorge says: Jan 8, 2017 9:38 PM

    I believe Mr. Beckham now has all kinds of free time to go boating in Miami. If only he and his team mates had waited another week…

  26. exinsidetrader says: Jan 8, 2017 9:38 PM

    Weak excuse. GB played the entire game whereas the Giants only gave it a little under a Half.

    poor lil guy

  29. cadreamer1969 says: Jan 8, 2017 9:39 PM

    The media makes him into a GOD that only needs one hand to catch passes when he doesn’t have the best hands to begin with. He has been shaky in other games but was able to regroup to make up for it. This time, he didn’t along with other players. It’s a team sport.

  30. skawh says: Jan 8, 2017 9:40 PM

    Aaron Rodgers was the difference between these 2 teams and in this game.

    All these noise about a boat trip has zero to do with dropping balls and a defense not playing its usual stellar defense.

    This OBJ is a trumped up controversy, which considering the election we’ve had it’s par for the course, imo.

  31. vicnocal says: Jan 8, 2017 9:40 PM

    He’s right -the only reason stupid irrelevant crap like that becomes a distraction is because you’ve got all these pencil neck dweebs who call themselves reporters asking about it nonstop -it’s a self-fullfilling prophecy

  32. gobolts says: Jan 8, 2017 9:40 PM

    It basically came down to Packer defenders NOT getting flagged for stupid pass interfernce during the game. Eli Manning lives on throwing the ball 40 yards and having BS calls go his way. It really had nothing to do with Beckham.

  33. switchwitch59 says: Jan 8, 2017 9:41 PM

    Should we watch for the video to appear on TMZ?
    Can’t wait.

  34. charger383 says: Jan 8, 2017 9:42 PM

    No fan of Beckham but lots of holes have been punched in walls after lost games

  35. sumkat says: Jan 8, 2017 9:43 PM

    A few months ago, I was in northern NJ, and while listening to the radio, heard a few guys talking about OBJ. They were discussing his contract, and if the Giants would be better off if they just let him walk, wondering if he is actually worth elite WR money with all the “other stuff” he brought. At the time I thought it was nuts, this was after the fight with the net died down. The hosts were 2-1 in favor of letting him walk, I couldn’t believe it

    I’m seeing their point now. I still think they would be nuts to let him walk, but I definitely see why there would be some hesitation to pay him 15 mil + (I doubt the WR market gets pushed up with the available guys this year). That would be $40 million just on Manning/Beckham. For that percentage of the salary cap, they have to be lights out, every week

  36. doe22us says: Jan 8, 2017 9:44 PM

    Nothing good comes out of partying with the Biebs and going shirtless during pre-game warm ups , what was that all about? I generally like ODB, but hopefully this is a lesson learned.

    ==================================
    Mike Singeltary? If he were the coach, the team wouldn’t have even been in the playoffs. In all honesty, that trip to South Beach was stupid, but I think the diva couldn’t handle the weather.

  40. Shinnbone says: Jan 8, 2017 9:49 PM

    So Beckham Jr. was so pissed after the game that he punch a hole in the wall and the story goes like this according to an eye witness,

    “OBJ punched a hole in the wall and when the piece was falling out, Beckham went to grab it and…..yes he dropped it.”

  41. metitometin says: Jan 8, 2017 9:50 PM

    Take a boat trip…after you win the Super Bowl. After you actually accomplish something. For the Giant players to take a 3 hour plane ride to Miami on their off day so they can take shirtless selfies on a boat is as bad a look as possible and comes across ax extremely arrogant and clueless. If Patriot players had done this, Belichick would have lost his mind and benched everyone.

  42. thefatlazygamer says: Jan 8, 2017 9:52 PM

    You know how you stop a reaction to a boat trip….

    See if you can catch this one… unlike the passes today…

    You avoid the boat trip reaction if YOU DO NOT GO ON THE BOAT TRIP UNTIL YOUR SEASON IS OVER.

    Just common sense. Too bad its not common.

  43. slingingsh1t says: Jan 8, 2017 9:52 PM

    Sometimes there are moments in sports where you know that it is, or isn’t, your day. The Elway helicopter in the super bowl in 98, the end of the half hail Mary by the Giants in 2012, and the hail Mary before the half today. It’s a lot more fun when you’re on the celebration side. Go Pack Go!

  46. sacram3ntal says: Jan 8, 2017 9:56 PM

    God he just doesn’t get it.

    It’s not that being on a boat a week ago somehow robbed him of his ability to play today, but the fact that he bolted for a day of yacht-partying in Miami during the RUN UP TO THE BIGGEST GAME OF HIS LIFE shows a huge lack of focus, preparation, respect, maturity, ambition, drive, and accountability.

    People were totally right to start asking “do these guys really even care? are they going to be ready for this?” and then if you play like garbage… well you reap what you sow.

  47. SouthStander says: Jan 8, 2017 9:56 PM

    Never his fault. Sounds a lot like a SJW.

  48. stellarperformance says: Jan 8, 2017 9:57 PM

    Acclimatization is a science. He’s too young and arrogant to suppose there might be a cause-and-effect between bare-shirted and bundled extremes.

    It takes a while. That’s why young college age pitchers attending warm climate baseball schools are advised to not go home (up north) for the holidays. Muscle contraction responds in unpredictable ways if you’re not acclimated.

  49. 12brichandfamous says: Jan 8, 2017 9:59 PM

    I like the people advocating the Gmen to send OBJ packing. without him, they have very little offense and would not be playing this game.

    He needs mentoring. Unfortunately, Gmen don’t have someone who can fill that role. send him to Steve Smith camp.

  50. jackedupboonie says: Jan 8, 2017 9:59 PM

    Well….when you are dropping every other ball notto mention a touchdown….then once game was decided, appeared to finally take it personal…yeah, you are a big reason for your team’s loss.

    ——–
    Reality check – Nobody is “lights out every week.”
    Don’t blame OBJ. Blame your GM who signed him to that contract. Where is the GM’s responsibility, for either he didn’t know OBJ’s immaturity, at what 23 years of age, or he ignored it. Which is it? OBJ is simply being who he is at a young age. Suggesting OBJ should be mature, at 23, argues with reality for how many 23 years old’s acting immature is the norm? He’s still a very young man…get over the mature thing, for he is who he is. And if the GM didn’t like OBJ for who he is he shouldn’t have signed him.

    But I get where fans want to blame the player instead of the idiot in the front office. There are no I want my money back choices. Trade OBJ, or live with him.

  52. Slapshot says: Jan 8, 2017 10:02 PM

    Did these guys really have to fly all the way down there to party–during a playoff week–just to have to return two days later? Do they not have the off-season to party all they want to? Antonio Brown stayed around Pittsburgh last week. It’s no coincidence he had a monster game today, while OBJ didn’t. It’s called professionalism . . . it’s not only how fans and teammates see you, but how you prepare unselfishly to give your team the best chance to win.

  53. rootpain says: Jan 8, 2017 10:05 PM

    Of course the boat trip had nothing to do with OBJ’s performance today. It was his lack of preparation for the game that did him in. Which was caused by all the distractions he had to deal with this week. Which were a result of the boat trip.

  54. packmanfan says: Jan 8, 2017 10:05 PM

    Being a renter, I got charged for putting a hole in the wall.
    I hope they do the same to him since it isn’t his house to begin with.

  57. suncawy says: Jan 8, 2017 10:14 PM

    Yeah, OBJ was right what happen 7 days ago on that boat didn’t have anything to do with how they played today….except that your teammates had to answer questions about that Miami trip for the last 7 days instead of being focused on the game, great way to be a teammate.

  58. shadywarrior says: Jan 8, 2017 10:17 PM

    Look, I’ve defended this guy in the past. I was prone to outbursts like his during my playing days, and while I wont say it’s good, I can understand where he’s at because I know it’s organic and it’s uncontrollable. It just sucks to have that side of you, but I can’t blame him, it’s all-natural. And I don’t have a problem with him being out on a boat on his day off. I wouldn’t do it if I were in his shoes, but I’m not going to kill the guy for it. Furthermore, I’d even agree too much was made of the story.

    But bro…you CANNOT even fix your lips to blame the media for distracting you after a piss poor performance. That’s an unbelievably bad look. That looks like you’re in spin control. Man up, say you just didn’t play well enough to win, if someone asks if the trip or the media story was a distraction, you just say “no.” Madden Self-awareness rating: 27

  59. rickyspanish24 says: Jan 8, 2017 10:18 PM

    I’m not sure you’re dealing with a full deck if any of you think the reason the Giants lost today was because of a boating trip taken a week ago.

  60. pftstory says: Jan 8, 2017 10:18 PM

    Focus on the game. I don’t mean the trip to Miami.
    I mean the need to have a pregame session each week specifically to make one handed catches so it can be shown on facebook.
    I mean the need to show the cold doesn’t bother you by going shirtless pregame. Which in reality, its cold, its uncomfortable. It also shows the cold has your attention. You are acting different because of it. It has changed your focus.
    (but maybe it replaced the one handed catch session)

  62. whatjusthapped says: Jan 8, 2017 10:29 PM

    If I were the Giant’s GM, I would search for trade partners prior to the draft and cut the dead wood while I had a chance. There a famous story from around 1960 where the best Center in the NFL (Jim Ringo) was demanding a raise from Lombardi. Lombardi told Ringo to wait in the outer office, called the Eagles and traded him on the spot.

    Point being, when you got a cancer in the locker room, you cut it out. I don’t care how much talent he has, he’s not worth the headaches.

  63. megnailsit says: Jan 8, 2017 10:30 PM

    Cuz sleep is so overrated…especially when you’re recovering from playing in an NFL game. Might as well fly to Miami, it’s not like there’s any partying at your doorstep in NYC. Guess it helps that your coach has no control of the team.

  64. jsrdc says: Jan 8, 2017 10:32 PM

    Beckham didn’t take long to board the excuse train. The Packers flat-out pounded NY from late in the 2nd Qtr on. The Giants wasted opportunities early in the game, but it wouldn’t have mattered the way Rodgers dominated that $200 million plus defense that the Giants assembled this off-season fir games exactly like this one. The investment hasn’t been worth it do far.

    Beckham punching walls and banging his blonde topped head in the locker room? He just doesn’t get it, and possibly never will. Stay classy, Beckham, and enjoy the view from the couch from here on out.

    justintuckrule, tokyosandblaster – where are both of you? Conveniently absent, much like the Giants offense and defense today 😭

  65. amaf21 says: Jan 8, 2017 10:35 PM

    ————————————————————-

    I’ve heard more than a few broadcasters, analysts and players comment on it this season: Antonio Brown is as good as he is because he might be the hardest working player off of the field in the game today. Guys get tired of covering him because he goes 100% on every play, every week, and because he pretty much never takes a day off from practicing or working out. The guy is in phenomenal shape and is fully focused mentally on being as good as he can be.

  67. bradjames33160 says: Jan 8, 2017 10:38 PM

    I once had anger management issues. I destroyed property often and I was threatened with being fired before I straightened things out. Thus, I cannot condone Beckham’s behavior. His stupid fan boys worship the ground he walks on and say “he wants to win, he has a lot of passion.” All he’s showing me is “Look Brad, my name is Odell, I’m an idiot.” Controlled aggression is how you win in football, that and not taking stupid selfies and letting things distract you. Good luck living this one down, you fool.

  68. ashes2ashesfun2funky says: Jan 8, 2017 10:38 PM

    Great receiver, but he brings alot of unnecessary attention onto himself with his drama queen tendencies.

    Had he not developed alligator arms on at least two of those first half catches (one which could have been a touchdown), the game may have been different. Jarvis Landry (his college teammate) despite being less explosive, has better hands. Its not like he was being covered by an in their prime Champ Bailey or Deion Sanders. Today should have been a solid game, but the guy just wilted.

    McAdo will need to run a tighter ship in the future or the inmates will be running the asylum In NY.

    As a 12 you probably don’t understand the thumbs down you are getting so let me help you out, they are all coming from people that know what you don’t, he is still on his rookie deal. $3M cap hit this year and next. The post you were responding to was about his NEXT contract.
    Great diatribe though, maybe next time try it with some facts and a little attention to detail.

    As a neutral fan to this game, all I can say is that Mike McCarthy owes an awful lot of thank you’s to Aaron Rodgers for bailing him out the way he did. Otherwise, McCarthy should have been, and would have been, roasted over an open fire for that incredibly moronic and bone-headed call going for it on 4th and 1 on his own 42 not even half way through the third quarter and up by 11 points. After the stop, the Giants went right down and scored to go down by only 1. Afterwards, Rodgers got hot and saved the game.

    Is t that why you want those qbs? I think your comments a little over kill

  73. kevishu says: Jan 8, 2017 10:57 PM

    I honestly do believe the boat trip had nothing to do with the game result since it was 6 days removed from when they played this game. If it happened a day before the game, then maybe I could see it affecting them. If anything, going out pregame without your shirt trying to act tough had alot more to do with the loss.

  74. kissmysandwich says: Jan 8, 2017 10:58 PM

    Horrendous coaching in this game. Rodgers bailed out McFatty once again. Hey Terry Bradshaw…You’re an idiot! The decision by McAdoo to not call a time out prior to the Hail Mary play to get everyone right was beyond rational thought. Go Cowboys!!

  75. baldbuc says: Jan 8, 2017 10:59 PM

    As a Bucs fan it looked like we took the wrong guy when we took Mike Evans over Beckham. After this season I’m glad we took Evans. Beckham is a head case and Evans fixed his dropping issue.

  78. r8dernation says: Jan 8, 2017 11:09 PM

    So, that boat trip made the whole offense have a bad case of the dropsies? Doubtful. Eli placed perfect passes in their hands and they all choked which failed to set the tempo early. Instead, kicking FG’s allowed Aaron to get finally get locked in at the end of the first half and the rest is history.

    Beckham went from a guy with soft hands to a guy with a soft head. I mean that guy used to catch everything he could touch. He must have dropped 3 or 4 passes that he usually catches. It was cold and it’s harder to catch in cold weather. Should have deflated the footballs just a bit.

  80. Angry Orange Man says: Jan 8, 2017 11:16 PM

    Yeah I’m done listening to Beckhams BS. Tired of hearing how much he cares when he’s physcally hurting himself after losses (because that’s always helpful). The time came to put up like one of the best WR’s in the game and he choked. I’m a die hard Giants fan, and he let me down today. I expected him to be ready to play and he totally wasn’t. He should be ashamed of the way he played today and shut his mouth, but he won’t.

  81. chrisk61 says: Jan 8, 2017 11:17 PM

    apparently beckham also banged his head against the wall when giants lost to eagles on dec 22. that is a weird response. almost suggests he has psychiatric issues.

    giants fans hated desean jackson when jackson was an eagle.

    and now giants have their own desean jackson !!!

    HA HA HA

    Giants WRs = Dumb and Dumber.

    OBJ can’t connect the dots but reasonably intelligent people can.

    There are some really good players whom you pray are never on the team you root for and OBJ is an All Pro of that group.

    Take it from a Viking fan … nothing good happens when you plan a boat trip.

  86. bullcharger says: Jan 9, 2017 12:13 AM

    The Giants stink and could not get 20 points, like they haven’t for most of the season. No surprises here.

  87. softandgentleraiderboy says: Jan 9, 2017 12:27 AM

    Tammy and BB have to be hugely relieved with this score.

  88. usdcoyotesfan says: Jan 9, 2017 12:30 AM

    Looks to me like the boat trip “did a great job of creating distractions.” Adele Beckham is a clown, that guy needs to shut up and play ball.

  89. bubbahotepp says: Jan 9, 2017 12:36 AM

    The Giants were nothing short of incompetent in this game. Poor decisions. Dropped balls. The D had their moments and Eli wasn’t bad, but they definitely deserved to lose that game.

  90. patsfan4lifesbchamps says: Jan 9, 2017 12:41 AM

    Just trade him to the Browns or Jacksonville. He is becoming a locker room cancer.

  91. maiphatdong says: Jan 9, 2017 12:42 AM

    now they can go boating all they want!

  92. shaggytoodle says: Jan 9, 2017 1:04 AM

    Now that the season is over he can go on all the boat rides he wants. I don’t think that is why they lost the game, but I also don’t think he dropped the passes, because of the gloves he was wearing, that he felt that obviously needed changing at haft time.

  93. adrianbeatason says: Jan 9, 2017 3:19 AM

    I kinda feel bad cause it seems like the media is always blowing smoke up the giants ass, telling them how they are so elite all the time… greatest defense in the NFL, with the NYPD, Odell is supposed to be the greatest WR in the NFL, and you can’t spell elite without Eli.

    Maybe they actually started to believe all that and deluded themselves into a position where they couldn’t look in the mirror and see an accurate reflection so that they could improve themselves and acknowledge their limitations.

    Like, confidence is great and all that, but you need to be able to accurately assess your own situation and have respect for your opponent to the point where you know you should be taking things more seriously.

  94. aj66shanghai says: Jan 9, 2017 4:15 AM

    It is easy to sit here and make fun of Odell Beckham Jr. And that’s why I like it, it’s easy.

    Giants looked terrible. No way does that team beat the cowboys again if there were a 3rd game.

    OBJ if you wanna go get some sun and fun in, maybe don’t advertise the fact next time. Keep your phone in your pocket and don’t pick up when Biebs calls. Nobody cares then and you won’t have such an awful “distraction” clouding your head all week.

  95. taintedsaints2009 says: Jan 9, 2017 4:19 AM

    I’d trade him. and it’s not just because of his historically pathetic performance today. It’s because his performance and behavior rubb off to the other receivers, and it clearly did today. This guy reminds me of Terrell Owens as an eagle, but atleast Owens was dependable.

  96. thechickenexpress says: Jan 9, 2017 5:04 AM

    Beckham’s right about this much: What happened to the Giants yesterday wasn’t because of last week’s one-day vacation in Miami. Their offense stunk all season.

  97. packmanjones says: Jan 9, 2017 5:28 AM

    I took a swig of beer today and it went down the wrong pipe. I thought “This must be how Odell Beckham feels when he chokes in the playoffs”

  98. blackqbwhiterb says: Jan 9, 2017 5:45 AM

    Seems like media attention is more important to OB J than on-field success

  99. MTLighthouse69 says: Jan 9, 2017 6:01 AM

    It was obvious that this Giants loss was coming. The team isn’t mature. It doesn’t help that Mumbles Manning has zero leadership skills.

    Yes, Manning has two SB rings, but those SB wins had more to do with New England’s choke jobs than anything else. And, I am not a Patriots’ fan, I don’t like Manning or the Patriots.

    Hey Odell, if you don’t want the media “creating distractions” don’t give them fodder to write about.

    OBJ is a great talent but he’s got more than a little T.O. crazy in him.

  102. daddeeo says: Jan 9, 2017 6:53 AM

    OBJ = Odell Beckham Just [during] Regular-season.

    Focus knucklehead. Focus!

    Your job this week was to actually make it to the playoffs. Not celebrate the “b” status of making the wild-card…

  103. lammalamma says: Jan 9, 2017 7:27 AM

    If they wanted to go on a boat trip…. Fine. It’s their day off. But they had to have known the reaction they would get and the ensuing distraction to follow. So maybe try and keep it quiet. Maybe don’t let anyone bring cell phone on the boat. Maybe don’t plaster pics of it all over Instagram.

  104. officialgame says: Jan 9, 2017 7:37 AM

    After the Eagles loss he was caught on video repeatedly banging his head into the wall so I guess he’s finally starting to mature.

  105. sidepull says: Jan 9, 2017 7:46 AM

    Immature little girl. Go play with your hair and you pretty little gloves.

  106. eramming says: Jan 9, 2017 7:49 AM

    OBJ you have a lot of growing up to do kid. That boat trip could have waited till next month. Learn from this PLEASE!

  107. Ihearya says: Jan 9, 2017 7:52 AM

    Is he in the concussion protocol now?

  108. psubeerman21 says: Jan 9, 2017 8:32 AM

    I have defended the guy in the past, but jeez does he come off like a little brat most of the ti

  109. electricnostalgia says: Jan 9, 2017 8:46 AM

    It’s blatantly obvious OBJ cares about his ridiculous image first and foremost. This is on the coaches for allowing this behavior to go unchecked. If it’s annoying to us can you imagine how his teammates who are true professionals feel about this clown?

  110. psubeerman21 says: Jan 9, 2017 8:51 AM

    And “boats” and “Miami” will probably be available in the upcoming weeks. He could have easily had his party today, or next week, or the week after. He has to grow up.

  111. plum54 says: Jan 9, 2017 8:55 AM

    Tone bones: you still don’t understand cold weather causes football to deflate? Seriously???

  112. bradygirl12 says: Jan 9, 2017 8:58 AM

    Heard he punched a hole in the wall and was smacking his head against a door. Great way to handle losing…he’s probably in the concussion protcol to boot. One of very few to get one OFF the field. This dude has serious issues.

  113. gtrav says: Jan 9, 2017 9:15 AM

    one of the best receivers in the league but you gotta grow up kid

  114. mostepicgnar says: Jan 9, 2017 9:21 AM

    Is Odell saying the trip didn’t cause distractions but the distractions were caused by those questioning the trip?

    Don’t blame OBJ. Blame your GM who signed him to that contract. Where is the GM’s responsibility, for either he didn’t know OBJ’s immaturity, at what 23 years of age, or he ignored it…
    … And if the GM didn’t like OBJ for who he is he shouldn’t have signed him.

    As a 12 you probably don’t understand the thumbs down you are getting so let me help you out, they are all coming from people that know what you don’t, he is still on his rookie deal. $3M cap hit this year and next. The post you were responding to was about his NEXT contract.
    Great diatribe though, maybe next time try it with some facts and a little attention to detail.

    Doubt it though.

  117. DugoutDirtbag says: Jan 9, 2017 9:28 AM

    How bout the Giants throw a party the next they score 20 points in a game. Start small and work their way up?

  118. expertatnfl says: Jan 9, 2017 9:45 AM

    The NFL isn’t even real anymore, so I can understand his frustration. The NFL now has the showdown that they wanted for maximum ratings: Packers vs Cowboys.

    Anyone see the body slam of Stafford? In January, the rules allow body-slamming the Lion’s QB. They just implemented that rule, so I’m not sure if everyone knew.

  119. filthymcnasty3 says: Jan 9, 2017 9:54 AM

    Steve Smith was a headcase as a younger player too. I think Odell is basically a good kid in desperate need of a few years of maturity.

    And then it will just be about the ridiculous talent.

  120. mezanine10 says: Jan 9, 2017 10:08 AM

    OBJ was like Folgers coffee…..good to the last drop.

    T.O was a lot of things, but he was a gamer and had a lot of big-time memorable moments in the playoffs. Odell should only be so lucky to be Terrell Owens.

    You want reactions to distractions to stop then stay off social media posting everything you do for the world to see!!!! You take a trip with the boys thats your business but then flaunt in front of cameras and post on media outlets than you make it everyone else’s business also!!!
    These new age kids gonna learn one day!!!! SMH!!!

  124. xdolfan says: Jan 9, 2017 11:23 AM

    Instead of going on a boating vacation, perhaps the Giants receivers should, oh I don’t know, stay in town, maybe practice catching the football, or even watch film of your opponent to see how his weaknesses could be exploited. Well, they’ve got the entire offseason to think about it now.

  125. laserw says: Jan 9, 2017 11:24 AM

    Princess Odelphia Beckham is always a victim – bad hair – tacky tats – footballs that won’t stay in his hands – and being carted off by a gang of gypsies to a boat that would ultimately be used as a distraction while he wasn’t studying film to beat the Cheeseturd defense.

    The great news is that this fraud of a team is now gone from the playoffs and the next one to be removed is the Danish Ham led Dallas Rump Riders who will disappear because they too are frauds.

  126. pettsmagee says: Jan 9, 2017 11:33 AM

    dude needs to be the center of attention at all times. your dumb mask in the locker room, all the WRs not wearing shirts pregame…it goes on and on. which is fine, whatever. but when you bring all that attention to yourself, dont be surprised when there’s backlash after you choke it out. straight up mental midget

  127. silvernblacksabbath says: Jan 9, 2017 11:35 AM

    I’d kick them off the team for hanging out with Beiber…

    What are they teenage women?? OBJ is but I didn’t think Cruz and Sterling were as well…

  128. concmike says: Jan 9, 2017 1:14 PM

    All of that comes after a week that saw Beckham and teammates getting asked about a trip to Miami after the team won in Week 17.

    Maybe if you guys stayed OFF OF SOCIAL MEDIA when you do stuff this would have never become an issue.

    Party with Beibs all you want (why I have no idea) but keep it to yourselves. Maybe if you all weren’t NFL Diva’s and needed the attention to be on you ALL the time….really running around the field in GB with your shirt off before the game….again attention on you….football is a team sport….the best TEAMS usually win!!!!

  129. infectorman says: Jan 9, 2017 6:58 PM
