Jon Gruden joined Mike and Mike this morning to talk about Odell Beckham And his tantrums. Gruden isn't a fan of his behavior or his play.
In fact he thinks the Giants should sit OBJ, via For The Win:
“I don’t think this is as difficult as maybe some people — he’s had some problems. I think he’s been fined five times. I think he’s been suspended by the league already. He’s not playing great football. He’s got no touchdowns. Zero. And I’ve seen him drop passes at the end of the game against New Orleans, Washington — he dropped one the other night. I thought he quit on a route that the ball was intercepted on.
“I don’t want to see anymore one-handed catches, honestly. He’s not playing up to his standard. How much are you gonna tolerate? I think that’s a question that Ben McAdoo, the head coach of the Giants, is faced with. You can tolerate more with some players than others. Obviously, he’s very talented, but like I said, he’s dropping passes. I’ve taken guys out of the game for that. I think that’s what needs to be done.
“Sit him down for a while. I know he’s a great player. But I’ve taken guys down for dropping passes, lining up wrong, missing an audible, blowing an assignment, committing penalties, not being reliable.”
You can't argue with Gruene, can you? He's the smartest football guy at ESPN. Well the highest paid anyway.
Gruene says sit him then you sit him.
