OBJ Ruled Out Sunday

Recommended Posts

Oh how the mighty have fallen.  Dude still has probably the most amazing 2 finger catch in the nfl when he was with the Giants. Seems as though he has mellowed some but the injury to.his knee is concerning. Get the feeling he won't be back as a dominant receiver. He does still command media attention but he may just fade and never be a big production guy again. Move over OBJ cause Anthony Schwartz is hot on your heels to take your job. May the SCHWARTZ  BE WITH YOU!

A local reporter's view (not sure but I think she is still the Browns beat writer for the Plain Dealer)

 

https://www.cleveland.com/browns/2021/09/why-holding-odell-beckham-jr-out-vs-the-texans-and-announcing-it-now-is-the-right-thing-mary-kay-cabot.html

 

It included an interesting bit from an interview with OBJ at his football camp (only time he has talked to the media since his injury, that includes of this off season, training camp etc).  Sounds like he will play when he feels completely ready, and won't rush back. Like many I think they see that isn't wise and leads to more potential for injury later.

 

“I think what I used to get caught up in -- which led me down a path I won’t go to again -- is you get hurt and we’re all men and we want to show everyone we’re a man and we want to come back,’’ he said. “It (becomes) all this ego challenge. I’m not really in it for all that anymore because I don’t feel like I really have anything to prove except to myself and me wanting to be the best.’’

I would tend to think this is just a guy waiting until he’s ready to come back which is understood considering he’s less than a year removed from that injury. It’s his stupid post with the drake song that makes you wonder if there is something more going

People read far too much into those "cryptic" social media posts. And it is usually people who have some beef with the celebrity. The one story I read about that Drake video and his Instagram photo with the cheetah & dogs was basically "time for a change of scenery, same old OBJ."  

 

I think a lot of famous people just like messing with people, and the "reporters" eat it up and react to it.

There you go, BB just got busy and left out the rest. Fixed

No no.  That's not how 'That's all you need to know about player X' saying works.  It must be full of hyperbole.  Whether a player misses one game or all 17; it tells you all you need to know.

OBJ was a full participant in practice yesterday and on track to to play Sunday. I'm still hearing that is a COULD return not nearly certain at this point. Still early on the week, and he's in a 1PM game Sunday you should be able to wait on that. Not sure I'll have that luxury with Amari Cooper going Monday night.

Yeah be careful. Cooper might be a game time decision. And even if he does play he has a tough matchup vs Slay.
