Odell Beckham Jr. Plans On Turning Browns Into ‘The New Patriots’
The stated aspiration itself is high praise. Patriots are now synonymous with the best team, winners, champs, continued excellence, etc.
Of course if Beckham really understood what it takes to be a Patriot he'd understand they do their talking between the lines, not between microphones. $50M talent...50¢ head.
How dare he.
Yep, I'm on the "high praise" bandwagon. It's pretty cool that, despite the best efforts of the league office and ESPN, the Pats are the model franchise and the exemplar for other teams with lofty aspirations.
Seriously, how ****in cool is that??
It's nice to have goals
Dumb comment but think they actually have a shot at being pretty good this year. That’s probably all he meant to say but apparently the Patriots are on his mind.
Will be remarkable to do that from the WR position. This kind of vision is normally created and implemented from ownership and coaching. Color me impressed.
From Florio, in response to these comments:
OBJ comments may not please his coach
The Patriots are the paragon of excellence. They are in everyone's head.
Just beat the snot out of the Ravens and Steelers and we'll forgive you when you fall short of your goal.
I’d concentrate of finishing above .500 first before you go proclaiming yourself as off-season champions.
That’s a compliment.
We’re the pinnacle franchise in the entire league. Soak it in.
It all flows from Bill Bellichick. It will last as long as he does.
We’re building a team, not collecting talent
I hope they beat the Steelers and Ravens twice but these dream teams don’t always work out.
So he wasn’t trying with the Giants?
The guy who had a career w/l of 25-34, didn’t show up for his only playoff game, has seen the playoffs 1 time in 5 years while missing over 25% of his teams games and having more contract disputes than playoff appearances is going to teach the losingest franchise in the league how to be the patriots.
OBJ's whole me-first attitude seems inconsistent with the Patriot Way of doing things. He will never lead anyone anywhere.
Or breaking the bank for talent.
This ain't the NBA, and maybe get into the playoffs once before proclaiming victory?
It's unbelievable. We've been renting space in every teams head for almost 20 years!!
I remember how crazy 07 got & here we are 10+ years later.
