Redskins coach Mike Shanahan and offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan in recent weeks have spoken highly of veteran wide receiver Joey Galloway despite his lack of statistical production.
Their praise, however, has rung hollow with many fans and media partly because they almost never publicly critique players and because Galloway’s scant production—only nine catches on 32 targets this season—belies their positive evaluations of his play.
Mike Shanahan’s actions speak the loudest in these cases, and we might have learned his true feelings during Monday night’s 59-28 loss to Philadelphia.
Roydell Williams replaced Galloway as the Redskins’ third receiver after a pass intended for Galloway was intercepted with 5:08 remaining the second quarter. Williams played 24 snaps the rest of the game; Galloway played only one.
