Thank goodness we didn't have no weak-ass Crabtree to get in your way idiot. Night night She-Hawks.

Patriots played a solid game on defense.

And John "When I Get Outcoached I Complain About The Formation" Harbaugh's team is 1-4.

Josh McCown doing his best "I'm not a turnover-prone game manager" impression.

Why is NBC pumping up this Odell Beckham guy? He's good player, but he's not ALLWORLD like Megatron, Julio Jones, Dez Bryant...

 

Also, why does Chris Collinsworth have to say something good after every play? I'd rather he say something like, "Man, that Offensive lineman just got owned!"

Question #1: money & marketing.
Question #2: he's actually just a down-home, honestly nice dude… never heard anyone in Cincy say a bad thing about him. Although I agree, I'd love to hear commentary like that as well. happy.gif


Additionally, in the short time I checked out the SF/NYG game I saw him a couple times on the sideline. He's gotta do something about that hair now… I mean look at him.

No one markets trash players

Are we going to act like beckham didn't have one of the best seasons for a rookie ever despite missing all of training camp and the first couple of games?

The only argument you can make for him to not be in the same tier as Julio, Dez etc is that they've been doing it consistently for years and he only has one year

1st, he got punked on that INT at the end. FIGHT FOR THE BALL.

 

2nd, he was limping around for part of last night's game. Took himself out.  MAN UP/BUCK UP.

 

3rd, they keep talking about that one handed catch in the Dallas game last year. GIANTS LOST that game.

 

4th, I don't care what kind of practice routine he has before games. It's all about GAME TIME, baby.

So basically he doesn't fit your arbitrary definition of a good WR. Got it.

 

Oh, and he came back in at the end of the game and drew a key penalty that got the Giants within range for Larry Donnell's touchdown.

 

On a side note, I still can't believe the Giants cut James Jones in the pre-season...

1) I forget how the exact play is with the int but every wr gets an int taken from them time and again 

 

2) He hurt his hamstring. 

 

3) It was still a good catch regardless of the result of the game and how is it his fault that people keep talking about it? It's not like a David Tyree situation where he makes a great catch and then that's it. Beckham's been putting up numbers since that catch

 

4) The guy had 121 yards and a TD. I'm not sure what more you're looking for.

Right now, he's Brandon Lloyd good.

I don't follow the Giants, but I don't see it. Didn't he miss 4-5 games last year due to being hurt?  Just getting tired of the hype train. 

post #3673 of 4985

Missed 4 games, but I don't see how that takes anything away from him. If anything, it's even more incredible that a rookie was able to miss so much time and still put up the numbers he did. 

post #3674 of 4985

He has had the most productive first 16 games of a career than any WR in history (going by yards, didn't look up TDs).

post #3675 of 4985
The hype is a bit much, but Beckham has had a great first season and solid start of the second season. That's indisputable. One can argue that he needs more than one good season to be considered elite, a fair point considering the one year wonders we've all seen. So the right thing to say may be that he has shown great promise, has elite potential and we need to evaluate 2-3 seasons of work before ranking him alongside veterans.
