Nauseous about Golladay

Essex : 9/18/2022 4:25 pm
This does not take away from my total enjoyment of being 2-0, but how is this the same guy who had legitimately great seasons in Detroit. I don’t even think he was targeted today, how is that possible he got so bad so quickly?

bust since coming to the Giants. Along with Toney he is filling to slots that could be filled by better players at any position!

2021: can we expect him to catch a TD pass one of these days?

Or in the coach’s dog house. Either way it doesn’t really matter.

Enjoy the wins. Accept there will be losses, some uglier than others. All part of the process.
What can you do?  
John In CO : 9/18/2022 4:30 pm : link
Cant take it back now. Sometimes you just sign the wrong guy. Obviously he took the money and is now running away. He is gonna get paid whether he plays or not. Nice situation for him. His reputation as a NFL player is shot, but I dont think he cares about that. It is what it is. Hopefully the new regime doesnt make the same mistake. Im not sick about him...I just dont consider him a part of the team at this point. He is just....there...and it wouldnt surprise me if his teammates feel the same.
Good news and bad news both are the same

Only 15 more games with him

be gone next year. Shepard, Sills, Slayton likely will be as well, and maybe also KT. We're getting basically nothing from our WRs. Teams are compressing to the LOS because they know we can't throw deep. We don't have a reliable deep threat and the OL can't pass block long enough. That makes Saquon a lot less effective.

Just cashing those checks. All good for KG.
Detroit fans were annoyed with him his final year in Detroit

he's washed and got paid by a desperate GM

Time to call the Packers...

If you  
pjcas18 : 9/18/2022 4:47 pm : link
are nauseous (or even close) about a player on a football team it may be time for you to take a step back, take stock in your life and the life of your loved ones and get some perspective.

it sucks but it's just not important enough to be sick over.

I say this not to be a dick, but as someone who used to live and die every Sunday, but now I don't. I still care and watch the team religiously, but I actually enjoy it more now that the losses don't bother me as much or for as long (and obviously today was a win, lol).

I’m not

gives us a great look at what kind of player to avoid in future drafts and FA. We are 2-0 without him.
Neither Golladay nor Toney have a TD yet

Played hard the first half, went into the locker room in the 3rs (cramps most likely), came back out for most of the 4th. That’s the “tough, dependable” Daboll is talking about. That will earn the coaches trust and he will get more and more opportunities. First important positive I’ve seen from him.
I don't doubt that there may

be some attitude and effort issues but I think this may be more of he is just damaged goods. Slower receivers to start losing a half/full step makes you not NFL caliber.

Early after the game.
Golladay does not get open…  
DefenseWins : 9/18/2022 5:01 pm : link
He never has. Not even with detroit. He is a guy who has to win position with his body or get a jump ball.

Now we should be using KT on third and short when we need just a few yards. Isolate him and he can shake his man to move the chains. Not sure why we are not seeing that. Instead we are using him like sinorice moss
They need to get Toney involved  
OBJ_AllDay : 9/18/2022 5:03 pm : link
I don't care how many people on this board hate him. They need him if they want to put forth efforts against the better teams in this league this year.

Really only one really good year. And, to Team KG's credit, that parlayed that into a ridiculous contract.
Golladay is a bum

Remind me which side of the DJ debate makes every thread about him?
JohnG in Albany : 9/18/2022 7:59 pm : link
Has been a complete, no effort failure since he's been with the Giants.

Why does anyone care about him after today's win?  
US1 Giants : 9/18/2022 8:02 pm : link
People enjoy complaining more than celebrating a win.
The team is 2-0  
Gman11 : 9/18/2022 8:29 pm : link
and some people just can't help focusing on the negative.

This guy sucked, that guy sucked. JFC, they won. It's time to be happy. Save the bitching for the losses.

If the story about Golladay's locker being empty after the game, you may want to speak to whoever did that when it comes to bitching about things after a 2-0 start.

I dunno maybe because I want to win more games and have a better passing attack. Radical idea. Carolina was 3-0 last year and picked one behind us in the draft. Having no real wide outside receivers is an issue and just because we won doesn’t mean you get to bury your head in the sand. You can be happy we won today and at the same time think about the larger situation. Literally, the first words in the post said how excited I was about being 2-0. People read what they want to make a criticism, it’s the way of the Internet. If your happy with our WRs and think this is sustainable, I hope you’re right.
