After not speaking with reporters following Sunday’s game, Kenny Golladay had plenty to say on Wednesday.
The Giants wide receiver did not agree with or like that he played just two snaps in the win over the Carolina Panthers.
“I should be playing regardless,” Golladay told reporters. “That’s a fact.”
Coach Brian Daboll said that before the game, he told Golladay they’d be going with David Sills on Sunday as the primary receiver. Sills played a position-leading 92 percent of Sunday’s snaps, building on 27 snaps in Week 1. Golladay, meanwhile, played a position-leading 46 snaps in the season opener, but only recorded two receptions for 22 yards. His play time dropped significantly in Week 2. Why? Daboll simply stated that wide receiver playing time is a week-to-week situation.
“It’s a continual competition at receiver,” Daboll said Sunday. “I’ve said it since when? I’m not being a jerk, I’ve said it since the middle of camp, right? It hasn’t changed. It’s going to be a continual competition.”

The coach commended Golladay for handling the decision “like a pro.” Talking with media members Wednesday, Golladay kept most of the details of his conversation with Daboll to himself.
