NGT: Are You Rooting for Odell?

Anando : 1/24/2022 4:12 pm
I know the board is pretty split on Odell and his tenure on the Giants.

Personally I (like many of you) was really disappointed by a lot of his antics, in particular him calling out teammates (Eli) and the organization in public.

With that being said, I'm glad to see someone with his talent bounce back and be a part of an exciting offense.

Curious to see where BBI stands - are you actively rooting/hoping for him to get a ring? Are you hoping the Rams lose? Or not really interested in his success one way or another...

not particuarly...

....and waiting for him to bonehead something that costs the Rams.

It will happen, just not sure when.

Pulling for OBJ

Our franchise has been turmoil for 5-10 years. Don't blame him for wanting a new job
The_Boss : 1/24/2022 4:15 pm : link
Hoping they lost yesterday..will hope they lose next week (they probably won't), then hoping the Chiefs (most likely) beat them in their own stadium for the super bowl.

Just the thought of him lifting a Lombardi makes me ill.
I root for the Giants  
Producer : 1/24/2022 4:15 pm : link
I kind of like the Rams for Stafford and McVay.

Don't care one way or the other about OBJ.

why not..

Once a Giant, Always a Giant. Only a Giant (Thanks, Eli)
I don't think they're getting a ring this year  
GiantSteps : 1/24/2022 4:17 pm : link
but I haven't hated seeing OBJ do well. He looks like a good fit there. The Rams are a fun team to watch.

It's too bad things went poorly here with OBJ, but at this point it's ancient history as far as I'm concerned. I like watching good players make plays (unless it's against NYG), and if he's finally found the right spot for himself, good for him.
Damfino : 1/24/2022 4:18 pm : link
Yes, the same way I still root for JPP. Once first a Giant always a Giant.
Yes & No....  
Goin Deep : 1/24/2022 4:19 pm : link
Great talent but just not for us.
Jim in Tampa : 1/24/2022 4:19 pm : link
If it had ended up being the Rams and the Bills in the Super Bowl I probably would have roted for Buffalo, just to see that franchise and the city win one. Now I'll root for OBJ and the Rams.
John In CO : 1/24/2022 4:19 pm : link
Dont really care. Now.......Donte Deayon and Grant Haley...thats a different story! Lesson #1 and #1A why sometimes getting cut by crap organizations can REALLY be a good thing!!!

pjcas18 : 1/24/2022 4:20 pm : link
the Jay Cutler response, I root for laundry, once that laundry doesn't = NYG then I am Jay Cutler.....(unless I gamble on the player or team then I care)

oddly, Yes...I root for him  
I Love Clams Casino : 1/24/2022 4:21 pm : link
He has grown quite a bit....I'd call him a savvy vet now.

Would, love love love to have him back at the end of his career....

Anyone who trashed the organization and acts like he did isn’t a Giant. Whether he was right or wrong.
I am  
Joey in VA : 1/24/2022 4:29 pm : link
He's had a rough go of it, he'll never be what he was initially capable of but he's on a good team and making the best of it.
an_idol_mind : 1/24/2022 4:30 pm : link
I don't hate him or anything, but I have no emotional attachment to the guy.
Pascal4554 : 1/24/2022 4:31 pm : link
I would like to see him be successful. I was at the Tampa game yesterday. During the TV timeouts if Odell liked the music that was blasting he would start dancing on the sidelines, full on dance party moves. It was pretty funny. Wish him the best.
Hell yeah.  
shockeyisthebest8056 : 1/24/2022 4:33 pm : link
He was a terrific player for the Giants. As much stupidity oozed from BBI over the boat trip, I’m glad he’s gotten an opportunity to show that he can perform in the postseason (even if it’s as a secondary option). I hope he wins it all with the Rams.
No. Because I hate McVay and the

Have never liked the McVay Rams, definitely pulling for 49ers to pull off the upset.
whispa : 1/24/2022 4:36 pm : link
I can't stand primadonna players like him.
Don't care  
US1 Giants : 1/24/2022 4:37 pm : link
Fuck Him...  
Chef : 1/24/2022 4:38 pm : link
fuck him in the ear! fuck him in the other ear!
I'm not rooting for the Rams for his sake or anything,  
Mad Mike : 1/24/2022 4:39 pm : link
but I'd be happy to see him make good plays.
If he played for another team maybe.  
CV36 : 1/24/2022 4:41 pm : link
christian : 1/24/2022 4:43 pm : link
Of course! He’s the only fun thing to happen to this team in 10 years.
Not in particular  
JonC : 1/24/2022 4:43 pm : link
I wouldn't mind seeing the Rams win it all, and he's playing a significant part in their performances down the stretch. But, I have little to no sympathy for shitheads.
Eli Wilson : 1/24/2022 4:44 pm : link
He's on my post-season fantasy team.

Would I otherwise - no idea. Probably wouldn't care TBH.
no... hell no  
GMAN4LIFE : 1/24/2022 4:44 pm : link
he publicly blamed the giants for his shit. then blamed cleveland for his shit.

dude is a douche.
BrettNYG10 : 1/24/2022 4:45 pm : link
My rooting interest:

1. Bengals
2. Rams
3. Chiefs
4. 49ers

Big gap between 2 and 3, though. I still like Odell. I'd be happy for him.
In general, yes  
Jerry in_DC : 1/24/2022 4:46 pm : link
I would have rooted for the Bills over the Rams. But I am happy for him and hope he does well. There have only been a few good post-Super Bowl Giants. He's the best and the only one that I cared about.

It's really a shame that he'll never get back to what he was physically, but I'd like to see him do well.
mitch300 : 1/24/2022 4:46 pm : link
Also the bullshit he pulled on Cleveland. It had to be pretty bad that they just released him. Sounds like what Harden did to get out of Houston. Fuck them both.
adamg : 1/24/2022 4:49 pm : link
He's a passionate guy. I think he's got the right team attitude now.
Amazing this guys following..good for him  
dee-fense : 1/24/2022 4:52 pm : link
not interested in him at best....bonehead but I guess product of his environment so no ill will really...just hard to get behind a la Tiki bigger than all attitude...out

so just to clarify are you hoping for him to do something bonehead, or are you just expecting it will happen


I like being right lol
illmatic : 1/24/2022 5:04 pm : link
I don’t hate the guy. He was fun to watch as a Giant and it’s another middle finger to Gettleman on the way out if he helps the Rams win a ring. I’d rather see the Bengals win it all but if they don’t, the Rams would be my second team to root for.
If they get past SF

Rooting for Odell?

When it comes to OBJ. Good luck to him. I have good memories of him and hope he does well.
Ehhh ...  
Beer Man : 1/24/2022 5:19 pm : link
he's no longer a Giant, so I don't really care how well he does.
BH28 : 1/24/2022 5:23 pm : link
Wish we still had a productive WR like that.
regischarlotte : 1/24/2022 5:36 pm : link
Still have a soft spot for that knucklehead.
I would like to see Niners and Chiefs  
kdog77 : 1/24/2022 5:39 pm : link
lose. Whether OBJ benefits from that situation is really besides the point.
Toth029 : 1/24/2022 5:42 pm : link
To Odell.

Yes to Stafford.
Route 9 : 1/24/2022 5:43 pm : link
Don't really care but it would be funny lol

He was the best WR the Giants had (by far) in the last 10 years.
