I am honestly a fan of Beckham, but I won’t miss all of

all the negative comments to heart, so he's disappearing from social media and trying to stay out of the public eye?

sounds like a head case. So stuck on himself he creates a bunch of drama. See ya, Odell. Enjoy the boating on Lake Erie.
Such a drama queen.  
Brown Recluse : 3/19/2019 3:08 pm : link
Didnt he say he was disappearing from social media for a while last year too and then was back on in like three days?

He can't stay away from the attention.

people who announce that they are taking a "break" from social media are the worst. Just stop updating your status...we're not stupid we know you're still checking that shit every day

the self inflicted drama never ends with him. Not that what he's doing is really all that bad, but it really is weird. Just always seems to be about him.

Sending him to Cleveland was cruel...

...they shouldn't suck, but there are few worse places to send him. LAKE winters are BRUTAL.

My gut says Gettleman won't be kicking himself over this trade.

Should have sent him to Buffalo - an outpost of civilization and until the lakes freeze over, the late fall/winter can be brutal.

If "get off my lawn vibes" is code for being emotionally intelligent and mature, then yeah.

I'm no longer a fan, I could care less if he ever has another TD in his career.

You can always go "dark" without telling people in advance.
Loved watching him in Giants blue  
bigblue5611_2 : 3/19/2019 4:31 pm : link
But will not miss this crap. To me this just screams the “I’m the victim” mentality he’s had and played out. Making everyone look at him, talk about him, that it’s so hard for him to go through this process of being traded when he’s really the one that orchestrated it.
He already deleted the instagram post  
Bergen346 : 3/19/2019 4:42 pm : link
What a chick. Good riddance!!
He definitely has some issues  
RobCrossRiver56 : 3/19/2019 5:38 pm : link
that have nothing to do with catching a football
I'll miss those amazing...  
bw in dc : 3/19/2019 5:43 pm : link
moments when OBJ had a football in his hands. It was electric.

But this sideshow isn't on the side enough. It's too much center stage.

Good luck Cleveland. Hurricane Odell has made land...
SO GLAD we were able to dump this nut on another team

Still sad he's gone but damn, this guys drama is seriously off the charts.

arcarsenal : 3/19/2019 9:03 pm : link
I thought he'd be over the moon to be with Landry and a young QB and a team full of talent... seems like he got what he wanted from a football standpoint.

I don't think he's a bad guy, I'd like to see him be happy and succeed elsewhere. No skin off my back if he does - where the Giants go from here is most important to me.

But he really has no one to blame but himself for repeatedly drawing attention to himself in ways like this. If I'm anyone in the Cleveland org or a fan of the team and I'm seeing this response, I'm not so thrilled.

It's almost like he still hasn't figured out that it's stuff like this that NYG eventually tired of and the reason he's no longer here in the first place. He could really use someone in his life who can give him some better advice than whoever he's getting it from now.

Why even say anything? Just take a break and recharge.
Two minutes after he is traded to Cleveland...  
EricJ : 3/19/2019 9:13 pm : link
he is telling people he was upset that he did not have any input into where he would get traded.

Nice way to tell Cleveland fans that you dont want to be there.
Ugh

MM_in_NYC : 3/19/2019 9:55 pm : link
The annoying ass haters who got on him for anything that was perfect behavior.

He was a good guy who had people came down on in an unjustified manner and then it snowballed. He certainly brought someone himself in the course of that.
Just not that bright  
JonC : 3/19/2019 9:58 pm : link
Maybe his selfish flaky personality has put him in a spot he now realizes he didn't actually want.
Does the perceived rejection cause refocus?  
Bavaro_the_Mafioso : 3/19/2019 10:00 pm : link
Very different scenario but is this his Chris Carter or “wake up moment?”

bradshaw44 : 3/19/2019 10:17 pm : link
Twitter, FB and IG magnify the human need for attention. It’s a disgusting side our being.
I think he's bummed to have to move to Cleveland for half the year  
Eric on Li : 3/19/2019 10:25 pm : link
he also probably got blindsided so I don't really blame him in that regard but he's got nobody to blame but himself.

Who thought he had his girl under control and after catching him pulling BS decided she had enough and sent him on his way and he's in shock.

His actions dictated this result and while he is an amazing talent and I wish him the best of luck with the Browns I won't miss the distraction he brought to the Giants.

My lawn is fenced in so you can't stand on it!
Thanks for the podcast rec  
Ned In Atlanta : 3/20/2019 8:42 am : link
Will definitely add this to the rotation. I like Brady Quinn,although his effusive praise of Eli is over the top IMo. The completion % (14 check downs to saquon) and the idea that it was his best season yet is fools gold
I was always ambivalent about Beckum  
arniefez : 3/20/2019 8:52 am : link
Awed and excited by his amazing talent and disgusted and frustrated by his cirius act which I thought hurt the team.

I said this yesterday. They sent him him to Cleveland. I know they're an up and coming team - hopefully for them. But they're in Cleveland. How many of you have been to Cleveland in the winter or any time of the year?

Gettleman said he didn't even shop the offer. Believe me they didn't send him to Cleveland by accident.
