sin embargo, en su primera temporada en Nueva York, Golladay solo vio 76 targets en 14 juegos para los gigantes. No tuvo una sola recepción de touchdown después de tener dos en solo cinco juegos con los Detroit Lions en 2020.
With Brian Daboll and Mike Kafka leading the offense in what could be Daniel Jones’ final season with the Giants, Golladay is expected to have more of a role. Golladay played sparingly in the team’s first preseason game against the New England Patriots last week. He had one catch for six yards.
Daboll was asked Sunday about Golladay’s consistency when it came to getting separation from defensive backs on the field.
“I think he’s acclimated himself well in terms of what we’re doing. Otra vez, all receivers, they’re different. Some are really shifty and quick. Some are big and physical,” Daboll said. “It’s just a matter of when you have an opportunity to go out there and make plays, which he’s made some of them, that you go ahead and make them. I’ve been pleased with how he’s handled himself. He’s been a pro, and he’s competing every day with those guys.”
Daboll acknowledged, especially for a Pro Bowl receiver like Golladay, that it’s tough to get any kind of separation in the NFL.
“Let’s just say in our league, it’s hard to create. When it’s man-to-man coverage, it’s press man-to-man coverage, it’s a little bit different in college where that goes into a whole other conversation of evaluating quarterbacks, receivers and trying to take off every man-to-man clip that’s press relative to some of the softer zone or maybe there’s just better players,” Daboll said. “Aquí, it’s pretty tight usually. Obviamente, there’s some elite route runners that have great quickness, ability to get in and out of breaks. And even those, it’s not like they’re open by a ton.
“Otra vez, different players get open different. I had a tight end that was a pretty good tight end – a big body guy that you just throw it up to him, and he makes plays when they’re right next to him. And those guys are good to have. Each of them are different. Every receiver’s different. Every skill guy’s different, whether it’s a back, a tight end. And you have to try to figure out, as a coaching staff, what their strengths are and let them try to go ahead and do it.”
Under Joe Judge, the Giants were 31st in points scored and yards gained in 2020 y 2021.
Daboll will look to ignite the lackluster offense with what he’s done with the Buffalo Bills.
