Jimmie Ward: I’ve been waiting a long time to hit Odell Beckham

The Rams tried to get their newest wide receiver, Odell Beckham, a big play early on Monday night, but instead 49ers safety Jimmie Ward intercepted the Matthew Stafford deep ball intended for Beckham just two minutes into the game. Afterward, Ward said Beckham is a player he relishes competing against, and beating.

“I was just thinking about how Odell came and hit me. How I’m going to have to pay him back next time I see him. I’ve been waiting a long time to hit him, so hopefully I can catch him,” Ward said.

Ward had an outstanding game for the 49ers on Monday night, intercepting that pass and then intercepting a Stafford pass on the Rams’ next possession and returning it 27 yards for a touchdown.

The 30-year-old Ward is in his eighth season with the 49ers, but he had just two interceptions in his career heading into Monday night. His two interceptions in the first quarter set the tone in a game that the 49ers dominated.

  1. Funny how he’s been waiting a long time yet Odell got him first. Life can be ironic like that.

  2. He’ll be injured before you see him next. THe OBJ cycle: Great catch. Drops crucial catches. Get’s injured. Drops more crucial catches. Get’s a “soft tissue” injury. Wants traded.

  3. This epitomizes how freakish this game was. Ward had two interceptions in his first seven and a half years in the NFL and had two in the first quarter last night. I’m not defending how awful the Rams were last night, they sucked big time, but for frisco that was their season. You ain’t making the playoffs

    Nah… Niners are used to beating the Rams… 5 times in a row. You should worry about your own team.
