Galloway Not Part Of Offense

Tampa Bay WR Joey Galloway has played in the last three games, but you wouldn’t know it unless you were really paying attention.
Galloway had three receptions for 38 yards against Dallas, one reception for 22 yards against Kansas City and no catches against Minnesota last week.
So far, Galloway has 12 receptions for 134 yards and no touchdowns this season after missing five games due to an injury. Galloway has more than 1,000 receiving yards the last three seasons, but the streak appears likely to end in 2008.
Bucs QB Jeff Garcia was asked if Galloway was still a part of the team’s offense during his Wednesday’s press conference and this was his response:
“I think what it was last year is Joey was definitely on the field a lot more, whether it was 70 percent of the time or whatever it may have been,” Garcia said. “He was definitely in position to be able to take advantage of certain opportunities that defenses gave us at certain times. Unfortunately now with his situation, he’s not utilized the same that he was utilized last year. It doesn’t allow us to maybe set up those big play opportunities like he was able to get last year.
“We just need to continue to plug away and find ways to get him involved, and hopefully when he is involved, when he is on the field, hopefully that opening occurs for him and I’m able to hit him. Otherwise, he just needs to keep working, and we all need to keep working, and hopefully as an offense we just all get better.”
