Giants won’t punish Odell Beckham Jr. on field for touchdown celebration
Odell Beckham Jr. won’t be punished on the field for his crude touchdown dance last week, NFL Network reported.
The Giants won’t bench Beckham or lessen his reps after he simulated peeing like a dog in last week’s loss to the Eagles.
Team co-owner John Mara said he was “very unhappy” with Beckham and that he would be dealt with internally. Beckham had already been fined by the NFL for the celebration, and apparently Mara talking to him was enough to set him straight.
Beckham’s touchdown celebration was in respond to President Donald Trump comments that those who kneel for the national anthem are “sons of bitch” and should be “fired.”
Again, reading a lot into a small sample of games is dangerous. But it’s impossible not to wonder why, for one, Watson was even there for the Texans to trade up to get on draft day. For another … well, Savage started that opener, although throwing a rookie out for his debut with his anchor left tackle, Duane Brown, still holding out would have been risky.
For yet another: Why did O’Brien roll the dice so much with the Brian Hoyers, Ryan Malletts, Ryan Fitzpatricks and Brock Osweilers of the world? It’s more complicated Cheap Blackhawks Jerseys than Cheap Bike Jerseys For Men that, of course, and general manager Rick Smith is on the spot for that, too.
But there’s a difference between re-molding somebody else’s work and sculpting one’s own original. Watson is O’Brien’s first original, and he’s the real thing, exactly what so many expected coming out of school, with all the traits the NFL desires in future franchise foundations.
