WR Odell Beckham Jr.
Postgame vs. Eagles
October 11, 2018


Q: Is this the most frustrated you have been here?
A: No, I hate losing, thatís the bottom line.

Q: How do you turn it around?
A: You just keep going. Come in day by day, keep digging, keep digging. Come in with your hard hat on every day and keep digging, thatís all you can do. There is no way to pull yourself out but to work and keep working harder.

Q: What happened at end of the first half when you went in early?
A: I was cramping, so I was trying to get an IV. The halftime break is really only 5 or 10 minutes. If I can use a couple of extra seconds to go and get an IV and come out, thatís really all it was.

Q: What were they doing to you tonight?
A: Same thing that every other team is doing. Itís that two-man with the safety over the top. When I was inside, they had the safety over there. When I ran across the field, he was cutting me off, a lot of double covers. They had a very good game plan, they executed it very well.

Q: Question about showing emotion on the sideline?
A: I was trying to get myself going. I feel like some of those plays right after I was getting myself going was some of my best stuff. I was trying to get myself fired up, I did that, and it helped me. There was a lot of things that had me fired up. Like I said, it helped me bring out the energy, I donít know a way around it but to get myself going.

Q: The thought was that Saquon would open things up for you, how is it he has a game like this and you are still not able to get free?
A: I donít know, Eventually they are going to have to game plan for him or he is going to do the same thing, he is going to torch them. Their game plan was to not allow me to have any big plays, keep everything in front, safety over the top doubling.

Q: After last weekís close loss there seemed to be a feeling that you guys were close, why was this not close?
A: We are not going to back track from last week. This is a very good team despite their record, they can play. They came out and beat us on every play and we beat ourselves. I donít even know how many penalties there was, but I can only imagine. It felt like every time I looked up there was another yellow flag somewhere. We canít have that, there is no way we are going to beat good teams with doing that.

Q: Whatís your concern level with the team at 1-5?
A: Kind of like what I said, just keep digging. Put your head down and keep digging. Thatís a really all you can do, keep digging and working harder or give up. I donít think anyone here is giving up.

Q: How do you keep it from spiraling out of control?
A: Just keep working harder, keep digging. Thatís really all you can do at this point, your record is what it is. How you overcome that, how you handle adversity, thatís going to be our MO.

Q: Given what was at stake tonight, are you surprised at the result?
A: I donít really know how to answer that. I just know they came out and played better than we did. We had penalties, we had all kinds of things that just didnít go our way and it made it very difficult for us to get going. When you kill yourself with penalties, itís very hard to win.

Q: Was this the worst it has felt?
A: Like I said, they beat us. They executed better than us, they had less penalties and mistakes. They were the better team tonight.

Q: After a tough loss like this. is there any positives you can take from this?
A: We have more games to better ourselves, come in there, see what happened on the film and go from there.

Q: On passes not to Saquon, Eli is averaging 5 yards per attempt, are you getting enough opportunities?
A: Like I said, they had a better game plan, thatís really all I can tell you. I will know better when I watch film tomorrow.
Ok

avoiding the folks who attack anyone who says something abd about OBJ but two things stand out to me that should be concerning:

1)Figure out your hydration issue quickly. Two weeks in a row you need an IV in a game you barely are getting the ball or even the ball thrown to you.

2) The last part about them having a better game plan is a not so subtle shot at the coaching staff. One minute he says penalties are the issue and then finishes with they had a better game plan. It is one thing if you say they executed better than we did or made less mistakes but to say they had a better game plan is a shot at the coaching staff.
Is it really that much of a concern

that he needed an IV? He didn't miss anything. It should have been a kneel down with 2 seconds in the half and then he was back by the first drive in the second half.
i think he answered the questions well  
BronxBombers : 10/12/2018 9:07 am : link
he did exactly what eli and jeter do/did...answer the questions with words that dont say much, its fine.
hes always  
UESBLUE : 10/12/2018 9:09 am : link
a stand up guy ni the post game pressers. It when hes alone (or not) on twitter or espn during the week that we have to watch for. You just know the explosion is coming...
Just keep digging

Course the final question tries the bait.
100%  
dep026 : 10/12/2018 9:23 am : link
phony. Actions speak louder than words. Many of us were fooled by him playing good soldier in the offseason.
Maybe  
Carson53 : 10/12/2018 9:31 am : link
if he wasn't such a volcano on the sidelines, he wouldn't need a IV before halftime. He burns a lot of energy.
The young man is misguided about what leadership
is all about. The rookie Barkley had to calm him down
at one point. You pay a guy that kind of contract,
just need to see better than that. You can tell Shurmur
is starting to get a little irritated at this
point with him, when you hear his pressers after games.
The form..  
FatMan in Charlotte : 10/12/2018 9:35 am : link
needs some refinement:

An old silent pond...
A frog jumps into the pond,
splash! Silence again.
I really donít understand his comment about the IV  
BBelle21 : 10/12/2018 9:39 am : link
The Eagles deferred. Wouldnít he have had the time he needed to get his IV?
Under normal..  
FatMan in Charlotte : 10/12/2018 9:44 am : link
circumstances, it takes 30-45 minutes to get an IV.

It is possible to get some fluids in quicker, but you don't want Beckham getting in with a rush of other players. They likely did a 15 minute treatment which cuts it really close to the halftime period. Going too quick could actually be dangerous as you don't want air bubbles or anything to happen if it is rushed.
Some reporters want to be story  
CT Charlie : 10/12/2018 10:18 am : link
more than Beckham does. I think he's trying hard.
Maybe they need to switch to Powerade and get rid of the Gatorade  
Rjanyg : 10/12/2018 12:22 pm : link
Holy shit drink water for 24 hours prior to game time. The dude is from Louisiana. I don't buy the dehydration bullshit.

Drinking a ton of water can actually cause guys to cramp by throwing off the electrolyte balance. He needs to crush a pedialyte or something like that the day of.
When you find yourself in a hole,...

STOP digging. OBJ has it backwards.

Yes it's a huge deal. You're the highest paid WR in the NFL, this is year 5, get your shit together. Hydration? Fucking easy. He can't even drink enough water? That's a horse shit excuse to miss any plays.
Extra passion must require an IV

There is no font large enough or bold enough for this:

Odell Beckham is a fucking loser.

Jerry in DC : 10/12/2018 9:44 pm : link
Reporter: odell, how are you?
Beckham: good, man, how are you?

GoTerps: Liar! He's not good. Phony loser - he doesn't care how the reporter is. You can never win with a guy who talks like that.
