Odell Beckham: I’ve never been as ready for a season as I am now

AP

Wide receiver Odell Beckham’s whereabouts were a lead storyline of the Giants offseason, but Beckham’s decision to spend the voluntary phases of the team’s workout program on his own isn’t likely to continue to be one come the season if Beckham produces on the field.

While at his football camp in New Jersey on Saturday, Beckham said he believes that he will do just that. Beckham has 288 catches for 4,122¬†yards and 35 touchdowns in his first three seasons with the Giants and said Saturday that he’s never headed into a season feeling as prepared as he feels right now.

“I’ve really been training, and to have these next six weeks and get another opportunity to train, it’s going to be great,” Beckham said, via NJ.com. “Mentally, physically, spiritually, everything, I just don’t think I’ve ever been as ready as I am now.”

Beckham knows that “words can only do so much” as he will ultimately be judged by what happens on the field this fall. That proving ground has worked out well for Beckham over his first three seasons and, despite all the offseason melodrama, there’s not much reason to think it won’t be the best place for him again.

    I have trouble taking these statements seriously. But I agree with the the article’s point that any validity or lack of lies not with anyone’s opinion but rather with what winds up happening on the field. Only time will tell.

    Try being ready for playoff games too.

    I hope so. You’re going to be needed.

    He also loves the sound of his own voice…

    We’ll see how his fragile ego holds up on the field this season.

    Another million dollar talent with a 10 cent head……….

    Odd.
    If I am a teammate, coach, owner or fan, I would ask him why that is.

    He’s going to have to share thecliad with Thurgood Marshall.

    What he means is he filled up the tank and scraped off the barnacles on the party boat in Miami.

    Haven’t heard such self-assuredness since Michael Floyd’s last proclamation.

    “I have never been a bigger punk than I am now”. There, fixed it for you.

    like him or dislike him, you have to admit he’s entertaining…can’t wait for his next on the field blowup that will be shown on the Red Zone channel (really dislike all the crappy commercials on the regular game channels)

    That’s nice, too bad it doesn’t start for 2 1/2 months. To paraphrase Parcells “We don’t need to hear about the pregnancy or the labor, when the time comes just show us the baby.”

  16. damcmp says: Jun 18, 2017 12:43 PM

    Wow! amazing what is this his 3rd year?

  17. drunkraider says: Jun 18, 2017 12:46 PM

    must be a contract year.

  18. elmerbrownelmerbrown says: Jun 18, 2017 12:51 PM

    He texted that from on a boat !

  19. tootitan says: Jun 18, 2017 12:55 PM

    I’ve never been as sick of Beckham and his juvenile, self-centered persona as I am now.

  20. leevi98 says: Jun 18, 2017 12:55 PM

    And he just gave himself the athletes kiss of death..

    The party boat filled with a bunch of shirtless dudes and like one chick.

    Don’t be the next be the next Victor Cruz.

    And I say that respectfully.

    Blah Blah Blah… Have fun sailing off into the post season without a trophy.

  25. nyneal says: Jun 18, 2017 5:13 PM

    This means he has all his celebrations down pat.
    It will include making love to the kicker’s net on the sidelines.

  26. arwiv says: Jun 18, 2017 6:03 PM

    Through his first 3 seasons OBJ is one of (if not THE ) most prolific wr’s in the history of the game….but lets keep talking about how horrible he is as an NFL player. Yeah, that makes tons of sense.

    You hate him because he isnt on your team.

  27. BarbequeTime says: Jun 18, 2017 6:09 PM

    He needs to get away from wanting to be the centerpiece and instead work as part of a team. The Giants have an amazing receiving corps this year second only to the Pats. (sorry Giants fans, it is what it is) I know some find Marshall annoying but lets not forget he’s still a beast with enough in the tank to rock this. Not much attention got paid to Gabriel last year but he is a gem coming in under the radar. And then there is Beckham. If the Giants want to do some serious winning they will need to use all three which means Beckham may need to be happy playing bait in some games. It will cost him some stats and he will have to be happy exchanging those for being an even more effective team weapon. If some top cornerback starts spending the afternoon in his face dont get mad instead just enjoy that he is tying up a top corner (or double coverages) leaving two more very cabable receivers with less coverage.

    What is he ready for? I hope it’s to start catching clutch passes, stop committing stupid penalties, and to stay focused when a defender tries to get into his head. And why is every one of his quotes about himself and not the team?

  29. chadhennespitter says: Jun 18, 2017 7:10 PM

    Avoiding him in fantasy this year, got a real bad feeling.

  30. tortorellasucks says: Jun 18, 2017 10:45 PM

    What a nut job that guy is… T.O. Jr.

  31. mellimac says: Jun 18, 2017 11:37 PM

    Well, his numbers have fallen slightly (Y/G, AVG, TD), and he has laid some bad games…opposing teams have figured out how to get into his head.
    But the biggest problem is Manning having time to get the ball to him, on long developing plays. On short slot stuff, he is ok, but I’m not convinced Odell is that durable.

  32. gsosings says: Jun 25, 2017 4:35 PM

    The ENVY & JEALOUSY of OBJ is obvious.. there isn’t a single GM in the entire NFL that wouldn’t trade MULTIPLE picks for this perennial game changer!

    Typical ill-informed and completely biased fan bullshet!
