The Giants receiver has drawn flame for a yacht trip before his squads playoff loss. He should have stayed inside, to turn the illuminates and shut the curtains
The impact of Odell Beckhams Miami boat ride six days before the Giants lost to the Packers in an NFC wildcard game may never be fully known. There are those who believe his hands had persisting ocean sickness and were unable to reel in football pass like the latter are South Florida marlin. Others believe it was Aaron Rodgers, cold weather and New Yorks horrific pass defense that did the Giant in. Perhaps the truth, like proper weight distribution of an ocean-going ship, is somewhere in the middle.
What we do know is that Beckhams trip is being scapeboated for the Giants 25 -point defeat by media members and fans whose thinking is even lazier than a shirtless day of sunbathing on the high seas. One thing occurred, then another thing occurred, and so the first thing must have caused the second thing. The logic is both air and watertight. But the optics of Beckham and friends sunning in Miami turned bad and its unlikely Beckham or any other NFL players will be taking Miami boat journeys on off days again soon.
A problem remains, however: NFL players still do have days off. As much as some media members, fans and even coaches might detest it, the athletes we watch each Sunday while prone on our couches for hours at a time are let a 24 -hour period during which they are given the opportunity to do something other than football. Sad! But true. So in the powerful aftermath of Beckhams boat, they must now choose their free-time to please everyone but themselves. Here are a few activities they can consider that might enrage the fewest people.
Regional ferry rides
Did you know that Odell Beckham isnt the only big NFL star who expended his free time before the playoffs on a barge? None other than Bill Belichick, the man often referred to as the greatest leader in football history, took a cruise on a ship, as well.
