  • Beckum's Last Chance?

    Honestly, I don't think Beckum has a future with the Giants. With Ballard almost certainly out, if Beckum has any chance at all, he has to have a monster game against Dallas, and maybe continue it into the playoffs. Except for one flash of brilliance in the GB game, he's done nothing this entire year. For a 3rd round pick, he's already established himself as a bonafide bust.

    Time's up.

    GO JAI-YANTS!!

      I think he's one of those cases of a player being drafted by the wrong team. He would of fit better on a team like the Packers, Saints, Chargers, etc.

        If Ballard practices today, I bet he plays.

            He's has trouble blocking and isn't all that great catching the ball. I don't think the Giant's waste their time with him next year.

              I wonder about players like Beckum...




              They obvioulsy are talented athletes since they at least made it to the NFL.




              IMO opinion its the desire and want to become what it takes to be an true NFL success. If this was not the right place for him then why not just leave and go to another team??




              Does he not care enough to bea productive TE for the NYGs.....or just a productive NFL TE??

                He's got New England written all over him. Two TE's and a Beckum looks perfect to me. He only turns 25 next month.

                  Every time there is an injury and you think this guy will finally step up, he never does.

                  I'm done waiting . . . .

                    I asked myself the same Q's
                    about Beckum and from what I can tell, obviously not knowing the man at all, I
                    think for him it's his desire/ability to stay healthy. He is always hurt, and
                    from some of TC's comments earlier this year it sounds like the coach felt they
                    were injuries he could have played through. TC is not the type of guy to make
                    an injured player go out there. There's a difference between hurt and injured,
                    you can play if you're hurting. Beckum also said before the Jets game he was
                    hoping to make the most of his opportunity since he never has gotten that chance
                    before. When I read that I almost flipped my lid. He never had a chance? The
                    Giants letting Boss go, and the starting job being there for the taking wasn't
                    enough of a chance for him? Please...



                    I say he has a ton of talent,
                    no desire to do the work necessary to make that potential translate in to
                    success in the league. Cut the guy and give someone who wants to better himself
                    a shot.

                      New England? I think they already have a TE. Pretty decent, from what I hear.

                        They have two good TE's, and I don't think Beckum is really a TE anyway, he can't block.

                            you know what this kind of reminds me of. Corey Webster leading up to the 2007 playoff run.

                            he was benched in 07, wrestled with mediocrity and plain being awful for a couple years, everyone seemed to have had enough of him (and it was fair too) and people wrote him off.

                            now, keep in mind I'm not saying Beckum is a bonafide all star, or even anything more than an avg player. all he's shown us is few flashes, although last year he had a couple of nice games.

                            one thing i can say, if this ny giants team is going to make a serious push to the post season and beyond, its players like Beckum who have to step up and play well.

                            Lets look at some facts about him:

                            He DOES have talent
                            He struggles with consistency
                            He struggles with blocking
                            He hasn't really carved up a niche for himself
                            He is still very young
                            He has shown some glimpses of being a special player.
                            He has shown the ability to be a redzone threat
                            He is running on borrowed time at this point


                            I think the things we and the giants need to keep in mind; he does possess talent, he is young, we haven't really found a way we can use him (especially in the system KG runs)

                            All that being said, he really needs to show he can at least be relied upon to do something, anything. Whether its a red zone target, whether its as a receiver, or that he can make this team better in some way.

                            I still maintain hope for the kid. I think if he was in the right system, he could be in the Finley, Hernandez mold. Its just about figuring a way to use him. If this Giants team is really going to win a super bowl this year, its players like Beckum, Barden, J-Williams, Prince, D.Scott that have to add contributions to what we already get from guys like Nicks, Cruz, Jacobs, Bradshaw, Webster, Rolle and Phillips. Our core players are very talented, we just need those supporting players to play well.
                            Kind of like the playoffs in 07 where Webster finally turned it on, hopefully Beckum can too...starting this Sunday night.

                            Confidence seemed to play a huge role in Websters improved level of play. Maybe thats the same issue Beckum has, a lack of confidence and in football, something like that can kill any chance of being productive.

                              I just don't see it. He is not a great blocker, not really fast or quick, not a good leaper, not really tall.

                              What is all of this talent everyone is referring to?

                              He has had ample time and opportunity and he has not shown anything. End of story!
