When cameras caught New York Giants wide receiver Kenny Golladay losing his mind near the end of Thursday’s loss to the Washington Football Team, it looked like his target was quarterback Daniel Jones. Turns out, he was yelling at offensive coordinator Jason Garrett.
“Pretty much just me talking to JG (offensive coordinator Jason Garrett) a little bit and that’s two competitive guys right there,” Golladay said. More so, just me wanting to do anything I can. Not so much, ‘Give me the ball more,’ though.”
Jason Garrett finally got a chance to address the situation and it was clear that it wasn’t a big issue with him at all.
“To me, it’s not a big deal at all,” Garrett told reporters. “We’re excited about having Kenny Golladay here. We liked him a lot in free agency and we brought him here and he’s done a really good job for us. I love the guy. I love his competitive spirit. We talk a lot about passion, emotion and enthusiasm in our players, that’s line one, and demonstrating that.
We talk a lot about fighting and competing, he’s a guy who wants to be a part of this thing. Missed a lot of time during training camp, has done a good job when he’s gotten some opportunities here in the first couple weeks. Had a couple in that game the other day that, unfortunately, we didn’t finish and probably had some frustration and that stuff happens on sidelines all the time.
Golladay has caught half of his 14 targets in two games for New York for 102 yards. The team is 0-2.
“We ask our players when they’re between the stripes to go out there and compete and battle and scratch and claw and we can’t say when they come to the sideline, all of a sudden we’re choir boys again. We understand that, I’ve been on sidelines for a long, long time so that happens,” Garrett continued. “He and I had a good visit after the game. It was not an issue at all going forward. There’s always better ways to handle things as you go forward, better ways to communicate but wasn’t a big deal to me or our team at all.”
Golladay is in his fifth year in the NFL and first with the Giants.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
