Beck­ham hope­ful Giants can run ta­ble rest of way

New Haven Register (New Haven, CT) - - PAGE 2 -

EAST RUTHER­FORD, N.J. — Call Odell Beck­ham Jr. the eter­nal op­ti­mist.

When the New York Giants’ flashy wide re­ceiver was asked Fri­day what he hoped his 1-7 team would do for the re­main­der of the sea­son, Beck­ham didn’t pull any punches.

“I think the goal is to win eight games, go 9-7 and go to the play­offs,” Beck­ham said.

Even though no NFL team has ever pulled off such a come­back?

“It’s not an easy task,” Beck­ham added. “But that’s the goal. We want to win ev­ery game and I want to do every­thing I can to help that. The Giants have been there be­fore, gone 9-7 and got into the play­offs. Any­thing is pos­si­ble. It’s not im­pos­si­ble to win eight games. It wasn’t im­pos­si­ble to lose seven. Any­thing can hap­pen.”

Beck­ham re­mained up­beat as his team pre­pared to face the San Fran­cisco 49ers in Santa Clara, Cal­i­for­nia on Mon­day night. He was cer­tain his team is ready to turn it around, al­beit in mirac­u­lous fash­ion.
