Looks like George R.R. Martin is a big fan of Odell Beckham Jr.
George R.R. Martin, the author of the world-wide phenomenon novel series A Song of Fire and Ice, which HBO turned into the mega-hit Game of Thrones, took to his personal blog and captured his feelings on the trade in an entry entitled “Kill Me Now.”
“I thought the last two seasons were rough for Giants fans,” wrote Martin, a native of Bayonne, N.J., and a Giants fan since 1958. “Next year is going to make them look like the good old days. Someone pinch me. I am having a Big Blue nightmare.”
“Beckham was not only the best receiver on today’s Giants, but he was the best receiver this storied NFL franchise has EVER had in their long history, and probably the best receiver they will ever have,” Martin wrote in his blog entry. “They are certainly not going to replace him with the 17th overall pick in the forthcoming draft.”
You can read his entire blog entry below:
The Giants have traded Odell Beckham Junior to the Cleveland Browns.They get a first (the 17th overall) and a third in this year’s draft, and a safety, Jabril Peppers.The Giants are GOING FOR IT ALL, clearly.Yes, they are. During the season they traded their best run-stopper, Snacks Harrison. Come to offseason, they let Landon Collins, an All Pro safety and the heart of their defense, walk for nothing. Then they traded their best pass rusher, Olivier Vernon.And now they have traded OBJ. Their best wideout, and one of the very best in the NFL. I’ve been watching and rooting for the G-Men since “the Greatest Game Ever Played” in 1958. Beckham was not only the best receiver on today’s Giants, but he was the best receiver this storied NFL franchise has EVER had in their long history, and probably the best receiver they will ever have. They are certainly not going to replace him with the 17th overall pick in the forthcoming draft.Some of the talking heads on ESPN are suggesting the Giants might package the 6th and 17th first round picks to move up a few slots and take a QB to replace Eli Manning. If they do, I feel sorry for that quarterback. He’ll be playing for an awful team.I don’t follow college football. Is there some amazing talent coming out next year for the 2020 draft? A new John Elway, a new Lawrence Taylor?Because, like I said, it sure looks like the Giants are going for it all… they are going for the first overall pick in 2020.No way that any team can replace its best wideout, its best pass rusher, its best safety, and its best run stuffer in one year, two years, three years.I thought the last two seasons were rough for Giants fans. Next year is going to make them look like the good old days.Someone pinch me. I am having a Big Blue nightmare.
Who knew this guy was such a football nut.
I just gained even more respect for Mr. George R.R. Martin.
