Pat Shurmur Publicly Disagrees with OBJ’s “Giants Need Heart” Comment

“I asked anybody that was interested if they wanted clarification to go to Odell, cause he’s a big man.”

Odell Beckham Jr. recently expressed his concerns for the New York Giants’ 1-3 start in an interview with ESPN’s Josina Anderson

He essentially connected the lack of heart and energy to the team’s poor performance.

“So a lot of it has to do with the energy that we don’t have, that we don’t bring every single day,” Beckham said. “And you know me. I’m a passionate, energetic person. I always have to have that. If I don’t, it’s gonna be a problem for me. And just playing with some heart. We just need to play with some heart.
