Washington’s receivers weren’t too happy at halftime. It doesn’t take a lot of digging to realize why. The starting three combined for seven targets in the first two quarters of Monday night’s win at Dallas. Meanwhile, the offense had produced three points.
Nobody felt it more than Pierre Garcon, who had just one ball thrown his way in the first half (resulting in a 2-yard loss). In fact, Garcon has only had 24 passes thrown his way the past five games combined. This after being targeted a combined 31 times in the first three games.
“In the first half, everybody was a little frustrated,” Redskins coach Jay Gruden said. “I know the receivers were a little frustrated. I know Pierre was frustrated because there were so many things we felt we were leaving on the table. I ... put out some fires.”
Garcon averaged around 12 targets a game last year so it's easy to see why he's frustrated. The QB play for Washington has been inconsistent and Colt McCoy was the third QB to start this season. Garcon owners may want to try and stay patient as the return of QB Robert Griffin III could help Garcon's production in the second half of the season.
