  • Landry vs Beckham

    The close friendship between Jarvis Landry and Odell Beckham Jr. is one of the great storylines of the Dolphins game against the New York Giants on Monday night, and another subplot involves their plans to put on a show in pregame warmups.

    Both of them dropped hints during separate conference calls Wednesday at planning something special for the warmups, but Landry just cracked a smile when he was asked Thursday for details.

    “I think you just have to wait and see,” he said.

    The prospect of a spectacle put on by Landry and Beckham, both known for their one-handed catches, has generated enough publicity that ESPN is pushing it while promoting its weekend NFL coverage plans.

    This is what an ESPN release said: “Before they became NFL stars, Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry were teammates at LSU. Now as they meet on Monday night for the first time as professionals, the self-described best friends are promising a catching contest during warmups and ‘Countdown’ will be there for an all-access pass to the pregame pass-catching display.”

      I think they are a really cool story. I am predicting a lot of tension on that sideline. Since Landry flipped out last week I'm sure he will want to get a ton of targets this week since he will be in a friendly competition with his friend/brother this week. Hopefully with another week under his belt without "Lazor" calling the plays Tannehill can get his act together. If he doesn't I can see Landry and possibly others losing their cool if the offense struggles to move the ball through the air. Yes, I know they want to run the ball a ton but they still have to have a passing game, right?

      If it's 3rd and long and Tannehill throws the ball to a covered receiver less then the yards needed to get a first down I want him benched, period. In his 4th season he should be able to throw the football past the chains and actually get a first down with his arm.

        Yeah, we all knew who was going to win this competition. Beckham is a beast and has torched ALL defenses in the NFL so doing it to the Dolphins was easy pickins. Landry got a ton of targets but unfortunately he wasn't able to get into the endzone. Maybe he will be able to do more next year?

          "Friends so close that they consider each other brothers, Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr. and Dolphins receiver Jarvis Landry used the occasion of their first NFL game on the same field to make history.

          With seven catches from Beckham and 11 from Landry, the former LSU teammates are now first and second on the all-time NFL list of catches made by a player in his first two NFL seasons.

          Saints receiver Marques Colston had held the mark with 168. Beckham, who caught seven passes on Monday night, now has 176. Landry, with 11 receptions in the loss, has 173.

          With 89 catches in 2015, Landry is only one reception away from the all-time Dolphins single-season record of 90, set by O.J. McDuffie in 1998. Last night’s performance vaulted Landry past Mark Clayton (86 in 1988), Brandon Marshall (86 in 2010), Landry (84 in 2014), Chris Chambers (82 in 2005), and Marshall (81 in 2011).
          Beckham needs 23 catches in the last three games to set the Giants single-season reception record. Steve Smith set the current high-water mark with 107 in 2009."
