Good morning, New York Giants fans! Your Wednesday headlines begin with an epic Mike Francesa rant about, of course, Odell Beckham Jr.
“For once, can I come out of one game one time and not have there be a Beckham story of some type we worry about and everybody in this town worrying about whether he’s happy, whether he is being utilized right, whether he is content with the game plan, whether he is on board, whether the coaches are connecting with him?” the WFAN host said in a fiery rant at the start of his show Tuesday. “I am so sick of this Beckham garbage. It is so overrated, and it is such absolute nonsense, and the media’s caught it so badly.”
Francesa noted that if you look at today’s highest-rated and highest-paid receivers, only one — Atlanta’s Julio Jones — has even played in a Super Bowl. He also pointed out that the Giants are 29-47 since drafting Beckham.
”The preoccupation with these prima donna wide receivers in this new age of passing is so overrated it is unbelievable. Enough!” Francesa said. “The best thing that could happen is they kick his rear end out of town and start over. Has it worked? He played in one playoff game, and he stunk. I am so sick of hearing about him it’s ridiculous.”
