Odell Beckham: Bucs’ Vernon Hargreaves told me they knew what we were doing

Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr. said this week that the Buccaneers may have seen the Giants’ plays coming during Sunday’s game in Tampa.

Beckham said Buccaneers cornerback Vernon Hargreaves told him after the Bucs beat the Giants that the Bucs thought the Giants’ offense was predictable.

“I was talking to Hargreaves after the game and he was like, ‘You know, we know a lot of what you’re doing,'” Beckham said.

Giants coach Ben McAdoo faced criticism last year that his offense was too predictable as well. But Beckham said he believes the Giants just need to execute better. Whatever the issue is, the 0-4 Giants need to get it fixed in a hurry.

  1. I totally believe that because Iam a truck driver and I know what plays are coming especially at the goal line ! In all honesty the GIANTS have been predictable on O for at least 15 years , even during their Super Bowl years only difference they could run the ball !

  2. Why stress at this point? The playoffs are an extreme longshot and they need a new long term QB. Let the season play out and enjoy the high draft pick.

  3. They sacked Coughlin for keeping OBJ on the offense, but now OBJ is the offense! Coughlin isn’t around any more to tell the team to invest in the O-line, but then maybe that’ll be the excuse for firing McAdoo.

    Meanwhile, Eli is 36 and by the time the O-line’s fixed his window for one more hot-spell could be over – and that’s only if he survives the additional pounding this year. And the Giants have never done that much about a QB-program either – Jets-reject and underwhelming headcase Geno Smith is backup.

  4. Macaroni McAdoo is on his way out if this team doesn’t rebound. You can’t just call your veteran players out and consistently lose in this league.

    If they go 8-8 or worse, I wouldn’t be surprised to see him canned.

  5. Eli isn’t a fantastic QB. He plays in hot streaks. Right now, his timing is off. Yeah, that’s his line but I mean, you have all these WRs and a good TE and you still can’t throw well? It’s clear here that you change the offense to a quick passing attack like Bradford or a past iteration of Brady. Sure, this means OBJ doesn’t get the deep ball all the time, but he would win so many one on ones.

  6. Hey Odell, don’t you think Jerry Rice’s opponents knew what the 49ers were doing? Of course they did. They even put two guys on Rice to try to stop him. He beat them anyway. That’s what great players do. They say, “I’m coming at you. Try to stop me”. Great players don’t accept defeat and then blame others. Terrell Owens, on the other hand, would blame others. It’s obvious which ex-WR is your role model. Nice choice!

  7. EVERY NFL D knows what the opposing O will do. It is all studied and practiced. What do people think film study is for?

    Joe Montana once stated that Sam Mills would call out every single play the 49ers ran as they lined up, then when Joe would audible, Sam would call out where the audible was going.

  8. Everyone knows what plays they’re running. It’s called 3 step drop and slant. They can’t run or pass protect so there’s not much else to it.

  9. Every team does, it isn’t about that, it is about beating your opponent to create the opportunity for the play to work, not to fool them. This isn’t pick up football.

    Just look how Tony Romo knows what is going to happen before each play, he isn’t the only one who knows what to look for.

    Have you watched Eli this season? Considering how horrible his OL is, he has done well, particularly these last two weeks.

  11. ah – have you heard Romo? have you seen the offense run by the Lombardi Packers?

    defenses know about 50-75% of whats coming – thats why you get 3 plays to get 10 yards

    execution

  12. It’s not even the plays. Watch the games. The other teams know the exact route combinations Mcadoo is running. Coaches eluded to it last year, now players are saying it. It’s obvious. The offensive guru Mcadoo is a joke. Eli has actually played great all things considered.

  13. Most teams with a quality coach that watch film will pick up on tendencies. You are who you are. Its on you to go out there and execute.

  14. Beckham upset for being “talked to” by McAdoo after doggie leg lift. So now he begins the process of getting his coach fired. Talk about predictable! Giants have a child running this team, along with an inept HC and clueless GM. What a mess! Gotta love it!

  15. Must have stolen a playbook. or had bugs in the locker rooms, or hacked the communication systems, or taped a walk-through. Right haters?

  16. I didn’t have a conversation with Beckham & I knew what the next play was going to be also….

    it’s that hard to figure on a quick slant to #13……
