While this might not be relevant to the New York Giants anymore, it’s quite fun to see Odell Beckham Jr. cause a ruckus on his new team, the Cleveland Browns.
On Thursday night, Beckham Jr. responded to Colin Cowherd’s talk-show after he broke down the 10 most memorable moments of his career. Surprisingly, nearly all of them were negative moments outside of “the catch.” Yes, that “surprisingly” was sarcastic.
OBJ went on a tirade viciously attacking Cowherd over Twitter, essentially calling him a liar and a fake. He also insisted that nobody watches his show, which clearly isn’t true given the response. If nobody watched his show, Beckham likely wouldn’t care what he had to say.
However, in my personal opinion, Cowherd got the last laugh, enjoying a second show where he broke down why OBJ is a circus. Clearly, his first show was bait for the star wideout, which he swallowed whole and held nothing back on social media.
Here are the tweets former New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. posted:
Here’s the follow-up from Cowherd on Friday:

The biggest point here is the response from Beckham in which he clearly lacks the self-control to simply stay quiet. Another good point – Beckham appeared for the first day of OTA’s and then departed. Cowherd states that he should have stayed and continued to develop a relationship with quarterback Baker Mayfield. In just his second-season, OBJ didn’t feel the need to work with Mayfield and work on their timing ahead of the season.
While OTA’s are optional, it’s more centered around the development of a relationship. Cowherd mentioned Tom Brady and Julian Edelman, a duo that spends every offseason training and working together despite their near-perfect timing and chemistry. It’s what winners do to ensure they emerge triumphant once the regular season rolls around.
Now, it’s more than likely you don’t agree with me here, and I totally respect your opinion on the matter. In fact, I would love to hear and talk more! Please comment below and I would be more than happy to converse on the subject.
