Kenny Golladay on lack of deep routes: “I don’t really have an answer to that”

When the Giants signed wide receiver Kenny Golladay to a four-year, $72 million contract in March, it was expected that he’d be a deep threat in their offense. Through three games, he hasn’t been.

Golladay is averaging a career-low 15.1 yards per catch and has yet to catch a pass longer than 19 yards this season. Asked about it today, Golladay said he can’t explain it.

I don’t really have an answer to that,” Golladay said. “At the end of the day, I’m going to run what the guys want me to run. I just look at it as, whenever my number is called I just want to go out there and make a play. Short or long, I’ve just got to make the play. That’s my mindset.”

Although the Giants have downplayed Golladay shouting at offensive coordinator Jason Garrett, he certainly doesn’t seem happy with his role in the offense. Nor should he be. Neither he nor the team is playing up to expectations.

  1. Great team player/comment. No wonder Detroit didn’t want you back. At some point you need to look in the mirror.

  2. Jason Garret runs an archaic offense. He is a passive play caller. He does not put his players in a position to succeed.

  3. I have the answer . It’s Matt Stafford and an legit NFL offensive line that allowed him to get the ball downfield accurately . An inaccurate Jones and a terrible OL isn’t going to allow for many downfield throws or completions .

  4. Cowboy fan here. The game passed Garrett by a long time ago but I do agree that the OL in NY doesn’t allow for longer developing plays. I actually think with a strong OL Jones would be a capable QB but Garrett is stuck in the 1990’s.
