ESPN Host Calls Odell Beckham Junior Delusional For Comparison to Tom Brady

New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. recently spoke out critically of how he’s being treated for some of his on-field anger problems. The player compared himself to New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, saying that there’s a double standard.

Will Cain of ESPN’s First Take called disagreed, saying Beckham Jr. is delusional:

“Lemme look up the definition of delusional. Here it is: a firmly held belief despite being contradicted by reality and any rational argument. I think that might describe Odell pretty dang perfectly. Let me get this straight Odell: you and Tom are exactly the same? Somehow, at the end of that, it’s just a double standard. You know what? It is a double standard. The standard works like this: Tom Brady has five Super Bowl trophies. Odell Beckham proposed to a kicking net. Tom Brady has four Super Bowl MVPs. Odell Beckham kicked a kicking net. Odell Beckham Jr. has been ejected and kicked out of games. He is a passionate individual. That is true. Tom is a passionate individual. That is true. The comparisons end there.”

The evidence is pretty strong. Beckham has yet to help his team even win a playoff game. It’s not too much of a stretch to imagine that his emotional antics are actually hurting his team.
