Odell Beckham says nothing can come between him and his teammates

Odell Beckham Jr. felt the need to offer an apology to his teammates Saturday night, but he isn’t worried about a rift developing within the team.

“Just chatter,” Beckham told reporters Tuesday. “Same approach every single day, get up, be the best that I can be. We’re moving forward. My teammates, my brothers, there’s nothing that can come in between us. We’ve had these conversations and like I said, we’re all moving forward onto Philly.”

Many of the Giants didn’t hear Beckham’s comments in an ESPN interivew that aired Sunday. In a sit-down with Josina Anderson, and alongside Lil Wayne, Beckham questioned the team’s offensive schemes, said he doesn’t know if Eli Manning is the problem with the Giants offense and answered “that’s a tough question” when asked if he was happy in New York.

Giants coach Pat Shurmur wasn’t happy with Beckham’s comments, but Beckham said he has smoothed over everything with the team.

“Yeah, I think we all understand each other,” Beckham said. “Like I said, there’s nothing that is going to come in between my brothers, my teammates. This is something that is going to pull us closer. I felt very close as a team this Sunday, and that’s the way that we have to play. That’s the way we’re going to fight.

“Nobody in here likes to lose. We’re all tired of losing. We want to change that culture, atmosphere, whatever it is, because this is a place that has a lot of pride and we want to be able to be proud of what we display and do all those things.”

The Giants gained 432 yards and scored 31 points against the Panthers on Sunday but lost on Graham Gano‘s 63-yard field goal with one second remaining.

  1. The only thing that can come between him and his teammates is him running his mouth to the media about not wanting to be in NY….oops…

  2. Here it is!!!! The ONLY reason I still come to PFT is occasionally I will see something like this that will make me laugh out loud. Usually it involves Jerry Jones, but OBJ is making quite the name for himself. This was funny.

  3. I personally wouldn’t want him on my team. Who needs this bull crap. He gets paid and he is still not happy. He doesn’t need a mentor, he needs a kick in the hiney.

  4. He chose to stay in New York. He knew the state of the team and who would be throwing the ball to him. 95 million should buy the franchise some sit down and shut up from this goof.

  5. Really, Odell? Prior to that 5 year extension for $90 million (with a guaranteed $65 million), it sure seemed like it was the $ coming between you and your teammates. You know, Odell FIRST, and THEN the team.

    Giants get what they paid for. A quarter of a Billion in contracts a couple years ago and D, and a $90 million contract extension for Odell, and it has gotten then where, exactly?

    Even the Browns have more wins than the Giants………

    He is passionate which is good. He just lacks maturity. He needs a good mentor around to help him through his youth.

    He has a good mentor in Lil Wayne. smh

  7. According to the PFT rankings that came out today the GIANTS are #32, bottom of the heap.

    Anyone surprised????

    I’m a giants fan and yes that’s what happens when you’re dealing with a franchise left in a horrible state after Reese’s incompetence. I might be the only giants fan who saw Eli’s demise coming(don’t ask me how) I think it was stupid of gettleman to let go Davis webb, maybe this we draft a qb with first round pick?

  9. Am I the only one who has no interest in a 24 hour NFL news cycle that is mostly comprised of he said he said gossipy garbage? Im a grown man, I care about the actual game that takes place on the field and who wins or loses the game, not what someone said on Instagram or tweeter.
    It’s pathetic that so many grown “men” care about what Odell Beckham said in some interview

    Wonderful. He is a passionate loud mouth who throws teammates under the bus, soaks up a huge % of a team’s salary cap and doesn’t actually deliver any wins.

  11. It’s pretty dang obvious he didn’t learn anything in the classroom while playing ball at LSU. He doesn’t even know what a HYPOCRITE is. Much less spell it.
    He throws them under the bus and now nothing can come between them. I wish Eli’s fist would come between them with a direct hit in the mouth. Because OBJ is being a HYPOCRITE.
    It’s either that or he can spout off to the press without thinking of possible retribution from teammates and then sings a different tune in front of them.
    Or maybe he’s just as stupid as he looks right now. Just sayin’……………………

  12. The only thing that can come between Odell and his teammates is Odell and Lil Wayne. I saw some of that ESPN interview and couldn’t figure out who that was sitting beside Odell. I was wondering if that was his girlfriend until he spoke.

  13. He is right though,,, two big parts of the game are taken out of the equation with Eli ,,if it’s a dirty pocket he’s gone down,,and he won’t scramble enough to let his receiver get big separation down field !

  14. When will this non-story end? Way too much attention has been given to a player who has scored only one touchdown on a team that only has one win this season.

  15. Giants should be 2-3 with a full head of steam if they hadnt been robbed by the officials on Sunday vs the Panthers. However, it is what it is. We have to win Thursday. Odell is the very least of the Giants problems.

  16. Nothing can come between him and his teammates except saying negative things about them in the media, throwing temper tantrums, house-boat parties before a playoff game etc, etc.

  17. They played Li’l Wayne at practice yesterday and it was hilarious. I don’t think too many of his teammates are going to care about his comments. Things like this sometimes galvanize a team. Grown men in sports are different personalities.

  18. OBJ is always going to be who he is,a self-centered baby.He was pulled aside by his agent after the Paris hotel fiasco,who said get compliant.Now look like you have matured and you will be rewarded with a huge payday.After that do your thing.

    OBJ is just being OBJ, Now the full time moron is John Mara who somehow thought all his one on ones with Odell would help him see the light.

    John Mara hoped and wished Jerry Reese would come around.He then hoped and wished OBJ would grow up(OBJ never will. 95Millions why)

    It is sad that a man(Mara),who cannot get a good read on people,is making the decisions.

  19. Eventually his massive paycheck and not matching production WILL be an issue. He is infantile, immature. All ego and braggadocio, histrionics and public emoting. He will suck the life out of the locker room.

  20. As Phil Simms Said, if a little adversity and friction destroy your team, then you are not a team, to begin with. Seems like many of the commenters have never been in a locker room
