Rodney Harrison has simple message for Odell Beckham Jr. after Patriots comments

Rodney Harrison has simple message for Odell Beckham Jr. after Patriots comments

Odell Beckham Jr. caused a bit of a stir earlier this month for saying he wants to turn the Cleveland Browns into the next New England Patriots and win multiple championships. Nothing he said was bad, although it might have been a little over-the-top.

OBJ ended up walking back those comments in an Instagram story, but former Patriots safety and current NBC Sports analyst Rodney Harrison still isn't happy with what the superstar wide receiver had to say.

Harrison went on CBS Sports Radio and offered a simple message for Beckham and the Browns.

“I think the first thing they have to do is if they want to be like the Patriots, they have to shut up," Harrison said on "The Zach Gelb Show." "You don’t need Odell Beckham talking, talking about he’s trying to be like the Patriots. Just shut up and play, OK?"

Harrison is right about one thing -- the Patriots don't talk much. The "Patriot Way" is all about being humble, staying focused on the next opponent and not giving the other team any kind of bulletin board material or scouting info as a result of talking too much to the media. It's probably not the most enjoyable approach for players, but it's hard to argue with the results in New England -- the Patriots just won their sixth Super Bowl in February.

The Browns have a few players, Beckham and quarterback Baker Mayfield most notably, who aren't afraid to speak their mind publicly. There's nothing wrong with that, but if expectations aren't met, there will be plenty of criticism thrown toward these two stars. And Beckham has set the bar even higher for the Browns in 2019 with his comments on becoming the next Patriots.

Twitter had jokes after Tom Brady ripped his pants during 'The Match'

Twitter had jokes after Tom Brady ripped his pants during 'The Match'

Tom Brady's Sunday afternoon of golfing with Peyton Manning, Tiger Woods, and Phil Mickelson was eventful, to say the least.

The ex-New England Patriots quarterback began "The Match" by struggling through the first six holes. Then, he finally got back on track with an amazing shot that briefly quieted the naysayers.

Unfortunately for Brady, the shot may have been overshadowed by him simultaneously splitting his pants. Just look at the photo below:

As you can imagine, Twitter had some fun with Brady's mishap:

It's OK, Tom. It happens to the best of us.

Tom Brady has a thing for comebacks.

The former New England Patriots quarterback was struggling mightily through the first few holes of "The Match" on Sunday. Then, he totally redeemed himself.

Just watch this shot below and enjoy:

"Shut your mouth, Chuck," Brady said to Charles Barkley, who had been chirping him throughout the match.

We should have known a comeback was around the corner. Didn't 28-3 teach us anything?

Just as Twitter had a field day with Brady's early struggles, it enjoyed watching Brady sink that improbable shot:

Bravo, Tom. Bravo.
