Odell Beckham Jr. jokingly said he wasn’t impressed with Myles Garrett racking up 4.5 sacks, saying he needs to see six or seven of them
Odell Beckham, Jr. is a hard man to impress. Just ask Myles Garrett.
And in typical Odell Beckham fashion, he had a quick and witty response, saying Garrett needs “six or seven” to impress him.
As for the fans in attendance, they were clearly impressed by what Garrett was doing. Late in the game, the Browns faithful were chanting the name “Myles Garrett” in unison as they showed their love for the No. 1 pick from the 2017 NFL Draft who has developed into one of the best pass rushers in the game.
Garrett had just one sack in the first two weeks but we all knew he was eventually going to break out. And it appears getting plenty of one-on-one matchups with Jason Peters was the catalyst for that success.
Afterward, there was a lot of criticism for the Bears who continued to leave Garrett with a solo blocker but the Browns created that problem when they added Jadeveon Clowney.
Another former No. 1 overall pick, Clowney also commands a lot of attention as he also had two sacks. The Bears knew they couldn’t shift all their attention to one side without freeing up the other to destroy the game plan. It’s a sort of “pick your poison” situation that clearly worked to perfection this weekend.
As for Odell Beckham, he too enjoyed a solid game. He hauled in five passes for 77 yards in his first action since an ACL tear in Week 7 of the 202 season.
No word yet on if Garrett was impressed by his performance but he would probably say he needs to see 200-300 yards in order to praise him.
