Rams head coach Jeff Fisher says his players won’t be baiting OBJ. We’ll believe it when we see it.
The Rams say they won’t bait Odell Beckham Jr. Coach Jeff Fisher said the Rams players “have been instructed not to hurt the football team.” I don’t believe it. That’s the kind of 7-9 bullshit the Rams are synonymous with under Fisher and defensive coordinator Gregg Williams.
As for the Giants, Beckham Shea McClellin Jersey says he’s ready for the late hits given out by the Rams defensive backs. “You do expect it,” Beckham said. “I always say stay ready so you don’t have to get ready.”
There’s a history between the Rams Sherrick McManis Jersey and Beckham. A late hit by the Rams on Beckham started a brawl on the sidelines between the two teams back in 2014.
The Giants-Rams game starts at 9:30 a.m. ET, and you can catch it on the NFL Network or a few places online.
While the other Giants receivers were running routes with quarterback Eli Manning prior to the game, Beckham was working with the training staff. He didn’t look comfortable according to Adam Schefter, and spent more time talking to the head coach and general manager.
The question now is just how much Beckham will play and how effective he’ll be against the Rams.
Beckham will also have to contend with a Rams defense known for taking some cheap shots and trying to bait players like Beckham. He’s said that he’s prepared for whatever they bring, and Rams head coach Jeff Fisher has said that they won’t bait him. But we’ll see.
He’s coming off a career game last week where he scored twice and racked up 222 receiving yards against the Ravens. His 581 receiving yards this season rank fifth in the NFL.
Giants sign Robbie Gould to replace Josh Brown. Brown didn’t travel with the team to London, but the newly signed Gould did. Meanwhile, the Giants still haven’t cut Brown.
The dink and dunk passing game got the Packers offense moving again. Rodgers averaged just over 5.8 yards per attempt on Thursday night against the Bears — 326 yards on 56 attempts — which is a long way from what we’re used to seeing from Rodgers. His career average of 7.9 yards per attempt. But it was EXACTLY what the Packers offense needed to get going.
Davante Adams might be the answer to Aaron Rodgers’ struggles. Adams helped solve Rodgers’ offensive troubles, at least for one night.
