Odell Beckham Posts Instagram Video Comparing His Temper Tantrums To Tom Brady’s
This week, Odell Beckham Jr. caused a stir when he essentially claimed he was the victim of an NFL double standard in the treatment of its biggest stars. His comments came after Brady blew up on Pats offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels at the end of the first quarter of the Patriots 23-3 victory over the Buffalo Bills. Brady has demonstrated a vicious temper at times during his career, most notably back in 2011 when Brady and former Pats offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien nearly dropped the gloves after TB12 threw an interception in the end zone.

After the most recent flare up, Brady told Westwood One’s Jim Gray that how people view his antics aren’t of interest to him.
“How people may view it, I don’t know, that’s for them to view. I don’t view those things like that, personally.”
“For me, it’s a game of emotion,” the 40-year-old continued. “Sometimes emotions boil over, and that’s sports. We’re not going out there to be choir boys. Football is an emotional game. There’s a lot at stake.”
Odell Beckham’s fiery antics have been perceived by NFL talking heads as a maturity issue rather than a byproduct of an insatiable will to win. Granted, Brady has never pretending to pee on a fire hydrant after scoring or assaulted a kicking net on the sidelines, but emotion takes a variety of forms. On Monday, the injured Beckham took to Twitter to vent a bit, claiming he’s “watched that man do that exact same thing for years” and only he gets labeled “selfish” or “needs to grow up.”
To further prove his point, the 25-year-old shared a montage to his Instagram account that cut together clips of him and Brady demonstrating nearly identical on-field expressions set to Drake’s ‘6 God.’
Brady and Beckham have a lot of similarities, like both their last names start with B. Some differences include 15 years in age, 5 Super Bowls, and 9 Pro Bowls. But besides that, pretty much the same dude.
