‘This Loss Was Mostly on Odell, Capt. of the Yacht Club’: Check out the Hottest Beckham Jr. Takes


screen-shot-2016-12-22-at-9-36-34-am-1-e1482417558192-650x452From the moment he dropped what would’ve been a touchdown pass in the first half of Sunday’s playoff game against Green Bay, New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. was certain to be the target of many #hottakes from sports pundits across America.

That’s because Beckham and three of his fellow receivers (including Sterling Shepard, who also dropped a sure-thing touchdown pass), spent the Giants’ off day this past Monday down in Miami partying with the likes of of Justin Bieber and Trey Songz — first in a nightclub and then on a boat.

So whether or not the impromptu trip south actually impacted his play, it gave his critics ammunition with which to attack him if he didn’t play to his usual high standard. And indeed, the takes came fast and furiously on Twitter as Beckham dropped three crucial passes.

Beckham was not without his defenders on social media:

Others were more concerned with what Beckham reportedly did after the game, when he was said to have punched a hole in the wall near the Giants’ locker room.

As for Beckham himself, in comments reported by Yahoo!, the receiver stood firm that his jaunt south was not the reason he had a subpar game.

“There’s no way you can connect something that happened seven days ago to today,” Beckham said. “That’s not realistic. The connection is not there, in my opinion. But everyone is going to have their own opinion.”
