“I Think He Needs to do a Little More Playing and a Little Less Talking.”

Words of wisdom from Giants President, CEO, and co-owner John Mara, who is talking about star wide receiver Odell Beckham, Jr.

Mara:

Fair? Probably.

It’s not like OBJ is to blame for the Giants’ woes, since his quarterback can’t get him the ball, but you need the dude to be a leader on and off the field, which does not include headbutting industrial-grade mechanical fans.

Through six games this season, Beckham Jr. has 45 grabs for 506 yards and a touchdown. He has a catch percentage of 65.2 but is only averaging 84.3 yards per game, which places him below his first three NFL seasons, all three of which resulted in Pro Bowl selections.

OBJ recently signed a five year, $90 million contract with the Giants that includes a $20 million signing bonus and $65 million guaranteed. He’s going to be around for many years to come, preferably with Eli throwing him the ball if you’re an Eagles fan.

More from Mara:

It’s about to be 1-6 because the Giants are going to lose to the Falcons on Monday.

    When he acted liked a petulant Pokémon trainer against Josh Norman I knew he was soft and all talk.

    You can only play the same clip of a 1 handed catch so many times …

    That’s the same thing Matt Nahagian told The Cuz after the first ratings book came out. Didn’t work.

    Looks like Elizabeth Warren just sealed her ticket to the White House in 2020! Can’t wait to see Trump at her inauguration. Finally we will have laws to protect minority’s and transgenders. Finally we will solve the gun problem. Finally we can outlaw hate speech.

        Elizabeth Warren is a true American and she just stuck it to Trump with her dna test.

          I can’t tell if your serious or not but Elizabeth Warren is going to get the dems nomination. She will destroy Trump in 2020. I think Americans are sick and tired of the bad economy, bad housing market, high crime and terrorism and the bully politics.

      Check your spelling on MINORITIES.
      We already have laws to protect minorities and transgender people.
      Stop watching CNN and read the Constitution
