Tigers don't change their stripes. Just like selfish people don't often change. It happens but not often. So, when former New York Giant, Odell Beckham Jr. was kicked off a plane on Sunday morning for nothing more or less than complete selfish behavior, red flags should have been flying for Big Blue general manager Joe Schoen and head coach Brian Daboll.
Recent injuries to the Buffalo Bills may make it harder for the western New York team to "guarantee" a trip to Super Bowl LVII in Arizona to their wild fanbase. As you know in the NFL, there are no such covenants.

In 2016, New York Giants fans were more than dreaming about Odell Beckham Jr. and Eli Manning combining to win a Super Bowl for Big Blue.

There are some very good memories of Odell Beckham, Jr. in a New York Giants uniform and some not so good ones, as well.

No surprise at this point to Big Blue fans, many who went into the season with so much hope only to have it evaporate week by week. The root of the problem general manager Dave Gettleman and his young unproven Coach Joe Judge were sent packing a few days ago. However, some former Giants players are still enjoying the excitement of the postseason tournament.
The New York Giants star running back Saquan Barkley missed almost the entire 2020 NFL season after tearing his ACL against the Chicago Bears in Week two. Barkley's rehab is a key component to the Giants hopes of contending for the NFC East crown in 2021 so it would have Giants' fans attention even without any outside help.
