Reaction To Amazing Odell Beckham Jr Catch


The Odell Beckham Jr catch on Sunday Night Football is easily one of the greatest in NFL history

Sunday Night Football not only featured a great battle on the field, but it was also the true emergence of Odell Beckham Jr. into stardom. The Giants’ rookie WR from LSU has been playing very well in his first season in the NFL, but Sunday night featured a dominant performance from Beckham Jr. that was capped off with one of the greatest catches that any fan of the NFL will see.

The great play from Beckham got praise from almost everyone in sports, including his quarterback Eli Manning.

“He’s a little bit different type of receiver than we have had,” Manning said on a conference call Monday, the day after Beckham dazzled the football-watching world with his one-handed touchdown catch in the Giants’ loss to the Dallas Cowboys. “He has that explosiveness coming out of breaks, that speed. Getting down the field, the catch ability — he catches the ball very naturally. Obviously, the big hands. He is a pretty rare combination of speed and explosiveness, with also really good route-running and being able to stop on a dime as well out of his breaks.”

Dallas Cowboys players, who just won their eighth game of the season were also asked about the great catch from Beckham Jr.

“It was special,” Tony Romo said of the catch. “I got a guy on our team who makes some pretty incredible catches and that one is right there with anything I’ve ever seen.”

“We’ve seen Dez make catches like that for us,” safety Barry Church said. “What can you say? They get paid too. That was an amazing catch. You tip your hat and move on.”

“I respect playmakers, and he’s a playmaker,” Bryant said. “I just don’t like it when he does it against us, but I do like seeing receivers ball out in this league. I’m a fan of all wideouts and I love that catch, but I’m happy we got the win.”

The Giants now have two of the greatest catches of all-time with the most recent one from Beckham Jr., and of course David Tyree in the Super Bowl against the New England Patriots.
