The spikes and plunges in opportunities have proved perplexing to Redskins WR Pierre Garcon and, to a degree, to HC Jay Gruden as well.
“He’s had a couple of games where he’s had multiple catches, like you said. Then he’s had a couple games where he’s had two or three catches, which seems a little bit odd,” Gruden said. “But sometimes this coverage predicates it. Sometimes he’s a feature guy and Kirk doesn’t see him, or he gets pressured or what have you. . . . But we do have to make sure we get him more touches early in games.”
