The opening drive for the NY Giants to start the preseason was a thing of beauty – until it wasn’t. With Daniel Jones looking sharp to lead things off, the stars were written for the G-Men to find the back of the end zone and kickstart the 2022 campaign with a bang. Then, an old friend of New York decided to show up: a drop.

This time, it was $72 million man Kenny Golladay who had a case of the butterfingers, as he had a ball somehow go right through his hands. Jones delivered the pigskin right where it needed to be on a third-down toss, but Golladay wasn’t able to reel it in. Instead of pushing for six, the Giants had to settle for a field goal. Just brutal.

We get that it’s the preseason and people are still working out some things. However, this is Golladay we’re talking about. He was brought in to be the star wideout for this offense and look like the 1,000-yard receiver he was for the Lions. Instead, more and more frustrating keeps piling up and the NY supporters aren’t happy about his play.


Golladay has to be better than that, plain and simple. Imagine had he hauled in the routine catch. New York then would have been in great position to score a touchdown on that opening drive. It would have been just what new head coach Brian Daboll and offensive coordinator Mike Kafka had been dreaming about.

Instead the nightmare arrived via a Golladay mishap. People on Twitter are even comparing him to Evan Engram, who was no stranger to dropping the pigskin for the Giants during his time in East Rutherford. After recording such a disappointing first season with NY last fall, everyone figured Golladay would be able to bounce back in 2022.

Again, this is just the preseason and we know people are working things out. In order for Golladay to get people off his back, however, he needs to clean up his play and start acting like a No. 1 wideout. These silly drops must stop, and they must stop now.
