Odell Beckham made headlines this weekend when he bluntly addressed the poor play of Eli Manning in an ESPN interview. Many have crushed OBJ for publicly commenting on his QB to the media, but Colin thinks he was within his rights to do it.
Colin has been critical of Beckham for being a head case throughout his career, but OBJ is also one of the few people in the Giants locker room who has the job security – after signing a massive new deal – to speak his mind without fear of getting cut. In this case, he was just addressing the obvious elephant in the room that is Eli’s poor play. It’s not a secret to anyone who has watched him play in the last five years.
Even if the Giants and the New York media continue to treat Eli with kid gloves as his play continues to decline, Odell was right to try to address the most obvious issue with Giants. If some people don’t want to hear the truth, that’s their problem.
