Good Morning, New York Giants Fans!
Believe it or not, the Giants are more popular in Ohio than the Cleveland Browns. Probably because there’s not enough good food and Baker Mayfield/Odell Beckham Jr. seem to be more concerned with a random team like the Giants than their own.
The football gods blessed us by not putting them on “Hard Knocks…” just imagine the drama that would have ensued. However, in an interview with GQ magazine:
Near our booth, a SportsCenter segment about the New York Giants catches Mayfield’s eye. “I cannot believe the Giants took Daniel Jones,” Mayfield says, about New York’s much-maligned draft-day decision to spend the sixth pick on the quarterback from Duke (whose college record was a measly 17–19). “Blows my mind.”
Sometimes, keeping your mouth shut is the best way to stay out of trouble. Evading police and going to jail should have taught him a little more self-control. However, his response seemed to shed a different light on the situation.

A nice thing to say after the fact, but who knows what really happened and if Baker truly feels that way. He should have peaked at Jones’ receiver’s numbers before making any comments — 33 dropped passes last season and yet Duke still managed to win a Bowl Game. They can thank Jones the “loser” for that.
Nonetheless, his comments made waves on Tuesday, even sparking further negative attention from Beckham Jr., who made sure to stab his old team once more. He stated that the Giants trading him wasn’t a business move and that they essentially tried to kill his career by sending him to Cleveland. Can somebody please explain to me how having Mayfield, Myles Garrett, David Njoku and plenty of other talented players puts him in a worse position than on the Giants.
I’m convinced OBJ is simply either unintelligent or on psychedelics.
