Wide Receiver Kenny Golladay
Q: You said at the beginning of the year that you thought it was going to take some time for you guys to come together as an offense. You're at mid-season now and you're starting to get a lot of guys back together again now, do you still feel that same way that it's going to take some time?
A: I can't say I still feel like it's going to take some time, but you do miss games, you do kind of fall out of rhythm a little bit. Especially when you're not playing, you're not running. All of that plays a role.
Q: How are you feeling? I'm sure the bye week was good for you.
A: Oh, the bye week was definitely clutch. I played the last game, had a bye week, had a solid day yesterday. I stacked another good one today. I feel pretty good.
Q: How close do you think you were to being at full strength in that last game being that was your first game back and I know you had the knee injury?
A: I don't even know to be honest.
Q: I'm assuming that means you weren't quite there? Is that fair to say?
A: Yeah, probably.
Q: Do you think this is the healthiest you've been since that New Orleans game?
Q: What do you remember about the last time most of you were together in New Orleans, and the second half of that game was quite good. Was that the potential of what this offense can be when you guys are on the field?
A: I mean, yeah. Everybody touched the ball. (Quarterback Daniel Jones) DJ was able to pretty much hit everybody. That's one of those good games when you come back and you're smiling the whole time you're watching the film. Of course, you make some mistakes during that game, but that's one of those games you feel great about the next day.
Q: Is that something that kind of excites you that you're going to play, (Wide Receiver) Kadarius (Toney) is going to play, (Running Back) Saquon's (Barkley) going to play?
A: Definitely. When we're at full strength it's very exciting I feel like. So, we've just got to see how it all shakes out Monday.
Q: Do you feel like you guys are running out of time to be the type of offense you want to be?
A: What is it, eight games including this one? At the end of the day, we have to get the job done with who we have. People have got to step up and we believe they'll step up. I don't feel like we're running out of time.
Q: As a receiver, how hard is it to play in a game like the Raiders game where offensively you're trying to slow down their pass rush, so you're getting the ball out quick and you're really trying to establish the run and you're not passing that much?
A: I know for me, that makes it easy on me to be honest. (Running Back Devontae Booker) Book was running the ball really well. (Fullback Eli) Penny came in and got some good runs in. I can't be mad at that. I'm not that type of player. I went out there and made the plays I did make when my number was called. But hey, I just want to win at the end of the day.
Q: How much different do you expect the offense to almost look with you healthier, with Saquon back, with Kadarius more involved than he was probably earlier in the year?
A: I mean, when we had all of us at almost full strength I would say – I think that was the Saints game – I feel like we played pretty well, but it's any given Sunday. We've just got to keep going out there each game and producing.
Q: When you envision what it's supposed to look like, is that Saints game is in your mind pretty much what it is?
A: That's pretty close to what I envision. Everybody touched the ball. DJ threw for like 400. Say had a long touchdown reception, then he capped it off with the game-winning rushing touchdown. That's a pretty damn good game. But I mean, I feel like we left some plays out there as well, so I feel like it can get better.
Q: When you're a player, people look at a defensive lineman and say, 'sacks, sacks, sacks.' But when you're looking at a wide receiver, you're saying, 'touchdowns.' Is it getting to you yet that you haven't gotten one?
A: Me personally, of course I want to set goals and put how many touchdowns I want. Is it frustrating? For me, yeah, just because I haven't gotten in the (end) zone yet. But at the end of the day, as long as I'm making catches to help us get touchdowns, I'm okay.
Q: Does Monday night mean a little extra for you? Does it do anything for you? I know you missed the last one and you probably didn't play in a ton of them in Detroit.
A: It's the only football game on TV, so it's definitely exciting. You're going to come with a little bit more juice, but it's a regular game once kickoff starts.
Q: Do you think this team's capable of making a playoff push?
A: Yup. We've just got to keep stacking games on top of games and coming out with Ws.
