Yes, that’s quite a bit of money. Almost as much as the 10-Point Stance editorial staff makes.
Shurmur acknowledged Beckham’s presence Monday, and Manning and Collins both participated in conference calls with the media. The Giants also indirectly confirmed the attendance of numerous other players on their social media accounts by posting photos of their arrivals and in the team’s weight room.
Shurmur is not permitted to force his players to attend per restrictions established by the NFL’s Collective Bargaining Agreement, and therefore, the Giants do not take attendance, at least not for public consumption.
But Shurmur has not hid his belief of just how important showing up Monday was, especially with the Giants ushering in a new era with Shurmur’s offense, coordinator James Bettcher’s defense and a locker room that ended last season’s 3-13 campaign badly in need of repair.
He said Giants star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. is having issues because he needs God.
There are numerous problems with this statement, but the most obvious one is that Lewis was once charged with two counts of murder. He eventually pleaded guilty to obstruction of justice after lying in that murder investigation.
Meanwhile, Beckham has never been arrested. Aside from some odd videos and pictures, he has never gotten into a whiff of trouble off the field.
Yet he’s the one being accused of acting godlessly? Really?
This has become increasingly common with Beckham. People in the media are making him out to be a bad dude, one who’s in need of saving. He has his faults, but we should remember that he’s not, well, Lewis.
