We've delivered stars as guests on a weekly basis, but this week delves into true celebrity status. The one and only Odell Beckham Jr. joins All Things Covered (36:30) for a wide-ranging conversation on his health, being misunderstood, his time with the Giants and much more. But first, our guys Patrick Peterson and Bryant McFadden chop it up. OBJ is a mega-star, but the All Things Covered hosts certainly have plenty of fan interactions of their own. P2 and BMac each share some of their most memorable fan encounters (1:15). Next, it's time to check in on the Arizona Cardinals, who are on a 3-game losing streak right now (9:05). Pat shares what the team has to change to get right before breaking down the big battle between Jalen Ramsey and DeAndre Hopkins from this past weekend and looking ahead at the upcoming matchup vs. the Giants. Then, we take a look at what's trending around the league (27:15) including a hard-to-believe defensive play call that allowed the Raiders to win and the Jets to remain winless. What would our defensive backs have done if they were on the field and got that call? Plus, Brian Flores continues to earn respect from the Dolphins and around the league. The wait for OBJ is over as Pat and BMac welcome another former LSU Tiger to the podcast (36:30). Beckham Jr. is currently rehabbing from a torn ACL and shares what that process has been like both physically and mentally. The Odell Beckham-Jarvis Landry connection and friendship is well documented, but we hear more about what makes 'Juice' such a special guy. Odell continues to open up about constantly dealing with misconceptions around him not only as a player, but as a person. We also revisit the play and more accurately, 'The Catch' that catapulted him to overnight superstardom. For such a global presence, does OBJ ever get starstruck himself? Pat and BMac learn about Odell's prior intentions to retire a Giant and what went wrong in New York before firing some rapid-fire questions his way.
