There are no more excuses left for the $72 million man. With NY Giants wide receiver Kenny Golladay all set to return to the field on Sunday vs. the Houston Texans, there are thousands and thousands of Big Blue fans who are ready for this guy to make some serious noise with the offense.

People have been fed up with Golladay, who has two receptions to his name this year. He’s also been out of action since the Week 3 Monday Night Football loss to the Dallas Cowboys due to his knee injury. If you think you’re frustrated with how 2022 has gone for Kenny G, don’t think for a second that he’s not ticked off too. He’s tired of not playing up to his potential for the Giants.

While speaking to the media earlier this week, Golladay had a different look in his eyes. You can tell that he’s seen all of the hate all over social media calling him out for his injury and poor play. That’s why he’s fired up to deliver vs. the Texans this weekend. He’s ready to ball out for the guys next to him.

"“I’m really not trying to prove anything to the coaches,” Golladay said about his return to practice. “Really, I’m out here playing for my guys and these people in the locker room. Of course, I’ve got to show on the practice field to the coaches, but at the exact same time, I’m playing for the guys in this locker room, period.”"

Golladay didn’t mince words there. No, he wasn’t taking a shot at Brian Daboll or Mike Kafka with that quote. If anything, he’s just making it clear that he feels like he owes it to his teammates to do everything possible to help them win.

The Giants have been surviving without Golladay, as they enter the weekend clash with the Houston Texans at 6-2. They’ve got a great chance to improve to 7-2 come Sunday.

Things will only be made sweeter for NY if Golladay has a big game and is seen smiling from ear to ear after the final whistle. It’s been a rough road for the WR, but it feels like good times could be on the way for him.
