There’s a strong argument that can be made defending the idea that Odell Beckham Jr. is the New York Giants’ best quarterback.
After seeing Eli Manning struggle big time in the first half against the Chicago Bears, head coach Pat Shurmur and Co. drew up a trick play to open the third quarter. It included OBJ tossing a 49-yard touchdown to wide receiver Russell Shepard.

To say the Bears were fooled on this trickery would be an understatement. Shepard was wide open. Beckham hit him with a perfect pass for the touchdown and a 17-14 Giants lead.
This is the second touchdown pass of the season for OBJ. He previously hit stud rookie running back Saquon Barkley on a long score.
As evidenced by both Beckham and Barkley, there’s a ton of talent on this roster. Maybe it’s time to see what another quarterback can do with this offense.
