Less than a week into the new year, Odell Beckham is making big plans for Big Blue.
Taking to Instagram on Saturday, the Giants receiver posted a photo of himself on the beach, captioning the shot with a bold prediction.
“This time next year we WILL be in the playoffs…” Beckham wrote.
Beckham’s first and last postseason appearance came in January 2017, one week after an ill-fated boat trip helped capsize the Giants’ playoff run, as they fell to Green Bay in the NFC wild-card round. Beckham later vented his frustrations by punching a hole in the wall.
After Beckham and the Giants finished 10-6 during Ben McAdoo’s first year as head coach, things took a turn for the worse in 2017, with the team falling to a dismal 3-13 on the season. Following McAdoo’s firing, the Giants hired Pat Shurmur, who wrapped his rookie season last week at 5-11.
As for Beckham, who finished the season on the sidelines for the second year in a row due to injury, he has $95 million more reasons to make a run at the playoffs in 2019.
