Giants’ QB Daniel Jones & Kenny Golladay Work Through Late Game Frustrations
During the Thursday Night Football game between the New York Giants and the Washington Football Team, cameras caught wide receiver Kenny Golladay appearing to have a few choice words for his quarterback Daniel Jones.
Questions quickly arose over whether Golladay’s outburst was due to the lack of looks his way. The former Lions receiver finished the game with just three receptions for 38 yards.
After the game, Jones attributed the emotions to Golladay’s competitive spirit, “I’ll say again: He wasn’t showing me up individually,” he asserted. “So, part of the game. Like I said, he’s emotional, wants to win. We all do. I respect that.”
However, Golladay clarified that his comments were actually intended for Giants offensive coordinator Jason Garett, rather than Jones.
“It was me just talking to JG [Jason Garett] a little bit. That’s two competitive guys right there. More so, just me wanting to do anything I can. Not so much, ‘Give me the ball,’ though.”
On March 20, the fifth-year wideout signed a four-year, $72 million contract with Big Blue.
Hopefully, Golladay can harness this energy and help lead the Giants to their first victory of the season, as his squad is currently 0-2 following the heartbreaking loss against Washington.
