Jalen Ramsey looks forward to Week One showdown with OBJ

AP

Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey reported for duty on Tuesday, following the birth of his daughter. And he’s already thinking about proving football paternity when it comes to Giants receiver Odell Beckham, Jr.

“Let’s get this out the way right now,” Ramsey said, via ESPN.com, “he’s a good receiver. We all know that. But y’all know me at the same time. Yeah, he’s good. But I’m good, too. If y’all want to say he’s the best at his position, I’m the best at my position, so we’re going to go at it. We’re going to give the people a show the first game of the season.”

Ramsey knows a thing or two about getting under an opponent’s skin. Last year, he flustered the unflappable A.J. Green to the point where both were ejected. And OBJ has a much, much shorter fuse than Green.

“He’s going to have some wins, I’m going to have some wins,” Ramsey said. “I just plan on having more wins. That’s the plan I’m going to go in there with. I’m going to work my ass off to get to that point. . . . I’m sure he’s doing that on the other side, too. That’s what y’all ask for. As fans of the game, as NFL, everybody, that’s what y’all asked for. We’re going to give it to you for sure. I know I am.”

Indeed, Jaguars at Giants should be one of the best games of Week One, especially since it brings former Giants coach Tom Coughlin back to New Jersey for the first time since he was fired. Throw in the possibility of an intense Ramsey-Beckham feud, and it’s a game that has all the making of a contest that should have been showcased, not tucked into the smattering of 1:00 p.m. ET kickoffs.

  1. In my early prediction I say Beckham has 6 catches for 53 yards and no TD’s … Ramsey and the Top Rated Secondary in the League will shut it down in the NYC. Even though the Giants O Line seems to have gotten better on paper , I still don’t see Eli producing anything good. Jags too good overall for the Giants to handle. #SaxsonvilleAllDayLong

  2. It will be great to watch these two athletes at the top of the game go head to head. The truth is though that itd be a mistake for the Jags to have Ramsey shadow OBJ an entire game. Shurmur’s gonna move guys all over the field and if Beckham can take away the Jags best cover player, not only will he get his working in the slot, but he`ll open up matchups for Engram, Shepard, Barkley and company, and Eli wont have to do much to pick the Jags apart. Gonna be a long day for the Jags if they play the game that the Giants want to play.

  3. Jalen will get in his head early. OBJ will end up having to apologize and propose to another piece of training equipment by the end of the game.

    You are in for a rude awakening if you believe this.

  5. Jalen will win the battle hands down. OBJ will lose his cool and throw a serious tantrum before halftime from being dominated by JR. JR’s super elite skills combined with his gifted ability to get in OBJ’s head will be the end of OBJ in this contest which will be
    No CONTEST, JR ALL DAY!

    News Flash … Your Giants were a laughing stock of the league along with the Browns … nothing has changed there buddy, you need a lot more help than just OBJ and a free agent and some rookies. My Jags are a juggernaut , a well oiled nasty machine that is ready to roll over anyone that gets in the way. Jags will pound NYC Week 1. Book it Baby ! #SaxsonvilleAllDayLong
