NFC East Q&A: How do you stop Odell Beckham? Sign Josh Norman

Today's question: How do the division's other teams view/handle the New York Giants' Odell Beckham Jr.?

Phil Sheridan, Philadelphia Eagles: I'm way too nice a guy to suggest hiring Tonya Harding as a secondary coach. The Eagles' pass defense has been pretty bad for the past few years. Some of that is because of talent. Some of it is because of scheme. But some of it is because of Beckham, Dez Bryant and DeSean Jackson playing in the division. Those guys are good. With Jim Schwartz as defensive coordinator, the Eagles' focus will be on disrupting the quarterback. Pressuring Eli Manning is going to be more doable than covering Beckham. I also doubt Jim Schwartz will be as reluctant to change his game plan and help out in coverage as Bill Davis was the past three years. That should help to at least slow Beckham down.

John Keim, Washington Redskins: The Redskins signed Josh Norman, so that provides part of the answer -- Beckham is a guy they know they must stop. Norman and Beckham went at it hard in their one meeting last season in a matchup that looked more MMA-ish. Norman helped to hold him without a catch in the first half; Beckham finished with six catches for 76 yards. The Redskins haven't had any luck against Beckham, who has a combined 28 catches for 364 yards and five touchdowns in three meetings. So they view him as a difficult receiver to handle (in the past, I've heard grumbles about his on-field antics or comments). The Redskins have said multiple times that the key is being physical with him, yet they haven't done a good job of playing that way. I wonder, too, how much more difficult he'll be to handle if new Giants teammate Sterling Shepard shows he can play.

Todd Archer, Dallas Cowboys: Thankfully for the Cowboys, he did not have the highlight of the year last season, as he did in 2014 when he made that one-handed grab on Brandon Carr. At times it seemed as if Carr was the new "agony of defeat," considering how much they showed Beckham's catch over and over. But a funny thing happened in 2015. Beckham wasn't a factor in either game. He caught nine passes for 79 yards. The Cowboys kept him under wraps after seeing the damage he could do in 2014. The Cowboys don't vary their coverages often. They stay basic and they often don't shadow the big-time receivers, either. They rely on team defense to get the job done. It worked last year and I can't see them changing much in 2016.
