Game Recaps

2010 Week 1 vs DAL (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Started the game as the #2 WR but was not targeted.

2010 Week 2 vs HOU (7 / 3 / 88 / 0 rec)

Galloway caught a couple short passes but his primary role in the passing game was to go deep. He got almost five yards behind the Texans secondary on two separate plays. The first he pulled in for a 62 yard reception but the second he just missed for what would have been the probable game clinching touchdown.

2010 Week 3 vs STL (2 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Galloway was targeted on a couple deep passes to the end zone.

2010 Week 4 vs PHI (3 / 1 / 5 / 0 rec)

Joey Galloway caught one short pass for five yards in the fourth quarter on his third target of the afternoon. Technically Galloway is the starter opposite of Santana Moss but his production is extremely low. Do not be surprised if Galloway is passed by Anthony Armstrong on the depth charts.

2010 Week 5 vs GB (6 / 3 / 28 / 0 rec)

Galloway was targeted late in the game when the Redskins were trying to get back into things and were passing on almost every down. He was open on several plays but was well overthrown on one of them and he was underthrown on a sideline route a couple plays later. With the emergency of Armstrong, Galloway's value to the team should be minimal.

2010 Week 6 vs IND (4 / 1 / 18 / 0 rec)

Galloway continues to look out of sync with his QB. McNabb missed him on a short route in the 2nd quarter and later under threw him on the game ended INT. His value remains very limited.

2010 Week 10 vs PHI (2 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

alloway dropped a 3rd down conversion catch and was underthrown on an out route later (which was picked off by the Eagles). Zero's across the board for Galloway once again, marking the 4th game in which he has been kept off of the score sheet.

2010 Week 11 vs TEN (6 / 3 / 32 / 0 rec)

Galloway still has amazing speed at 39 years old and can get it done, no doubt about it. He ran a very impressive dig route over the middle early on, showing his speed and cutting ability to everybody. He found a soft spot later in the defense vs. zone but McNabb was unable to find him until it was too late. He also caught an out pass that aided a FG attempt late in the game, but is a role player in this offense that gets limited looks as it looked like the Redskins limit his snaps due to his age.

2009 Week 1 vs BUF (2 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Galloway was barely targeted all night. He seemed to almost get free deep once, but Donte Whitner was flying over from the middle of the field, and Brady wisely threw the ball over Galloway and out of bounds. He won't get into the box score much this year unless defenses drastically change their approach to defending the Patriots offense.

2009 Week 2 vs NYJ (12 / 5 / 53 / 0 rec)

Galloway got a ton of targets early, but slowed down as the game went on. He did one chance to catch a deep pass from Brady in single covered, but it was barely tipped away by the defender in the end zone. There were plenty of moments that Galloway and Brady seemed out of sync, especially on blitzes when adjustments were supposed to be made. Galloway also got some of Welker's short route targets, but he wasn't nearly as effective as Edelman after the catch.

2009 Week 3 vs ATL (5 / 2 / 14 / 0 rec)

Galloway continues to be out of sync with Brady, although Brady did overthrow him when he was open deep. Galloway had a big gaffe in the first half when unnecessarily stepped out of the back of the end zone on what should have been a TD catch, and he also had a bad drop. The opportunity has been there for Galloway to become a big part of this passing offense, but he hasn't seized it.

2008 Week 1 vs NO (13 / 6 / 56 / 0 rec)

Joey Galloway was Tampa Bay's most targeted receiver, getting 13 looks from Garcia, and he finished with a team leading nine receptions for 56 yards. While the reception total is nice, the seven yards per catch is something the Buccaneers certainly would have liked to be higher. Galloway usually shreds the Saints secondary, but in this game was held without a big play with his longest catch just 13 yards. Galloway got four third down targets, and Garcia did take his chances with him on a few deep routes. However, it just seemed that the timing was off between the QB and this speedy wideout after each missed most of the preseason.

2008 Week 2 vs ATL (4 / 2 / 18 / 0 rec)

Galloway received five targets and totaled just two receptions for 18 yards. For the second week in a row, he seemed to be out of sync with the Tampa Bay quarterback. Whether it's a result of him missing much of the preseason or the nagging injuries he's had so far this season, Galloway does not seem himself. Late in the game he was on the sideline with an undisclosed injury.

2008 Week 8 vs DAL (6 / 3 / 38 / 0 rec)

Joey Galloway was used on routes that were intended to stretch the defense. He was unable to connect with Garcia on deep passes in the first half, but was able to find openings in the middle of the field and turn short passes into gains of more than ten yards.

2008 Week 9 vs KC (3 / 1 / 22 / 0 rec)

Galloway was on and off the field throughout the game and was targeted three times. He caught one pass for 22 yards and was thrown to downfield on a few occasions. He still seemed to be limping noticeably and does not seem to be 100 percent.

2008 Week 11 vs MIN (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Galloway was active for the game but was on the sideline for the majority of it. He did get some reps in the second half, but was not targeted.

2008 Week 12 vs DET (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Galloway played in the game but was not targeted.

2008 Week 13 vs NO (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Galloway played and had just one target, but failed to record a reception.

2007 Week 1 vs SEA (8 / 5 / 72 / 0 rec, 1 / 1 / 0 rush)

Galloway was the only real threat in Tampa Bay's passing game. He was the most targeted receiver with nine, hauling in five receptions for 72 yards. Galloway also had a big punt return that was called back for penalty.

2007 Week 2 vs NO (5 / 4 / 135 / 2 rec)

Galloway continued his abuse of the New Orleans secondary, finishing with four receptions for 135 yards and two touchdowns, from 69 and 24 yards out. He needed just five targets to reach those numbers, averaging over 33 yards per reception. Galloway shows no signs of slowing down, and seems to have good chemistry working with QB Jeff Garcia.

2007 Week 3 vs STL (4 / 4 / 42 / 0 rec)

Galloway was targeted four times in the game, catching all four passes for 42 yards. While he did not come through with any of the big plays he's accustomed to producing, three of his four receptions netted first downs. Galloway did get hit hard across the middle and appeared shaken up, so owners will want to keep an eye on his injury status for next week.

2007 Week 4 vs CAR (2 / 1 / 7 / 0 rec)

Galloway was basically shut down the entire game. His first target was not until the fourth quarter. Galloway caught one pass for seven yards.

2007 Week 5 vs IND (8 / 4 / 50 / 0 rec)

Galloway dropped a couple of receptions that could have got the Buccaneers going. He was the receiver Jeff Garcia looked for in tough situations, only he could not convert against the stingy Colts defense. Galloway beat the Colts defense down the middle of the field in the fourth quarter but Garcia's throw was under-thrown.

2007 Week 6 vs TEN (5 / 4 / 97 / 1 rec)

Galloway was targeted five times, catching four passes for 97 yards and a 69 yard touchdown. The play was typical Galloway, splitting coverage and getting behind the defense for a big play.

2007 Week 7 vs DET (5 / 5 / 46 / 0 rec)

Galloway had a very quiet day, as most of the deep routes were eliminated by Detroit defenders. The one time Galloway actually did get open deep downfield, QB Jeff Garcia didn't see him and instead checked off to someone underneath. Despite the quiet afternoon, it was a milestone game for Galloway as he went over 10,000 yards receiving for his career.

2007 Week 8 vs JAX (18 / 6 / 115 / 1 rec)

Galloway looked very sharp in this game. Although he was going up against a very good secondary, he showed he could get open deep as well as run good intermediate routes. Ten of his targets were either on intermediate or deep routes, and he was overthrown a few times, while at others Jacksonville's defensive backs managed to recover in enough time to deflect passes as they arrived. Galloway was the primary receiver for Tampa Bay and they showed they have several different plays designed to help him get open, among them one where he caught a long pass and outran the secondary easily for his touchdown.

2007 Week 9 vs ARI (9 / 5 / 84 / 1 rec)

Galloway scored on a 37 yard touchdown on a deep up the middle throw in the first quarter. He was targeted nine times by Garcia with many of them crossing routes over the middle.

2007 Week 11 vs ATL (2 / 2 / 63 / 1 rec)

Joey Galloway was only targeted twice in the game, but made the most of it. He caught both balls thrown his way for 63 yards, including a 44 yard touchdown reception. On the touchdown grab, he made a great double move that gave him separation from DB DeAngelo Hall and Galloway was able to bring down the Garcia pass to complete the long score.

2007 Week 12 vs WAS (7 / 2 / 21 / 0 rec)

Galloway finished with just two receptions for 21 yards, but his day could have been much bigger with better quarterback play. He got separation twice, and was open downfield, but was missed on both plays that could have been scores. Washington made stopping Galloway a priority, and used deep coverage with their safeties throughout the ballgame.

2007 Week 13 vs NO (9 / 7 / 159 / 0 rec)

Joey Galloway was a nightmare for the Saints. Galloway continued to build on his strong history against New Orleans with seven receptions for 159 yards that included a 60 yard reception that set up a Buccaneers touchdown. Six of his receptions resulted in first downs and he was targeted four times on third downs.

2007 Week 14 vs HOU (8 / 6 / 87 / 0 rec)

Joey Galloway was targeted eight times, and caught six passes for 87 yards. He was overthrown on a deep pass route that would have been a sure touchdown, but aside from that missed opportunity, the Houston defense did a nice job containing Tampa Bay's biggest offensive weapon.

2007 Week 15 vs ATL (6 / 1 / 7 / 0 rec)

Joey Galloway had a quiet game and finished with just one reception for seven yards. He was the most targeted Buccaneers receiver, finishing with seven targets for the game, and he was able to force a few defensive pass interference plays downfield that helped keep drives alive for Tampa Bay.

2007 Week 16 vs SF (2 / 1 / 29 / 0 rec)

Joey Galloway played just a half, and finished with one reception for 29 yards on just two targets.

2007 Week 18 vs NYG (8 / 1 / 9 / 0 rec, 1 / -4 / 0 rush)

Joey Galloway was completely neutralized by the Giants, as he finished with just one reception for nine yards. That catch came in the first quarter, and Galloway was shut out for the remainder of the game. It wasn't for lack of opportunities, however, as the speedster was targeted a team high eight times, including a red zone target that was picked off in the end zone. Galloway was forced to leave late in the game with a shoulder injury.

2006 Week 1 vs BAL (3 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Galloway was shut down completely by the Ravens' defensive backfield, failing to catch a pass, and being targeted only three times for the game.

2006 Week 2 vs ATL (17 / 9 / 161 / 0 rec)

Galloway had a strong game after being shut out last week, catching nine passes for 161 yards and was the most targeted Tampa Bay receiver, with seventeen.

2006 Week 3 vs CAR (7 / 1 / 8 / 1 rec)

Galloway was targeted on the second play of the game at the line of scrimmage on a quick hitter, but he allowed the cornerback to slip in front of him and intercept the pass. He pulled in an eight yard touchdown crossing the back of the end zone to put Tampa Bay on the board for the first time in the game. Galloway led Tampa Bay in targets for the second consecutive week. His single reception was a good indicator that QB Chris Simms was forced to get rid of the ball quickly throughout the game. Galloway was targeted on the final play from scrimmage deep down the left sideline on third and five when a first down would have ended the game.

2006 Week 5 vs NO (8 / 4 / 110 / 1 rec)

Galloway had a productive game, catching four passes for 110 yards and an 18 yard touchdown reception. He was Gradkowski's favorite target, getting eight passes thrown his way.

2006 Week 6 vs CIN (15 / 7 / 67 / 0 rec, 1 / 2 / 0 rush)

Galloway was targeted a team high fifteen times, catching seven passes for 67 yards. He was unable to come up with any big plays, but he continues to be the focal point of the Buccaneers' passing attack. He also had one rushing attempt on a reverse, changing direction and running back across the grain and turning a potential loss into a two yard gain.

2006 Week 7 vs PHI (6 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Galloway was conspicuous by his absence on the stat sheet, but it was not for lack of an effort. Galloway was targeted five times, the most of any Buccaneer. The first pass in his direction was a short pass that was too short for him to catch, and the second was not close due to his route now being what QB Bruce Gradkowski expected him to run. He had three more targets that were deep balls that were not catchable, and the lone other pass was deflected by the defensive line.

2006 Week 8 vs NYG (11 / 4 / 32 / 0 rec)

Galloway ended up with four catches for 32 yards. He was thrown to the most but he may not have been Gradkowski's favorite target after he dropped two deep passes on the same drive. Tampa had finally gotten a first down and it would have given them a chance to get back into the game.

2006 Week 9 vs NO (6 / 4 / 97 / 2 rec)

Galloway loves facing the Saints. In their first outing, he had over 100 yards receiving and a touchdown, and in this game he had nearly 100 yards, finishing with 97, and two receiving scores. Because of the pressure the front seven of the Saints was able to generate on the Buccaneers offense, Galloway was unable to get the amount of looks Tampa Bay surely wanted to give him. He was targeted six times, a number Tampa Bay certainly would have preferred to be much higher. His touchdowns came from 44 and 17 yards out.

2006 Week 10 vs CAR (8 / 5 / 87 / 0 rec)

Galloway was the most heavily targeted receiver for the Buccaneers, and also the most dangerous. He was overthrown on the opening possession for what would have been a 50 yard touchdown. He was a factor on the third drive as he slipped and then recovered to make a 27 yard reception. Galloway then converted a first down with a seven yard reception and the drive led to a touchdown. Gradkowski targeted Galloway deep later in the first half, but the pass was intercepted by Ken Lucas. The Buccaneers struggled in the second half and it was Galloway that gave the team a spark. He caught consecutive passes of 26 yards and 19 yards to set up a field goal and also had a nine yard reception for a first down on Tampa Bay's final drive of the game. Galloway ended with five receptions for a total of 87 yards, and each catch brought up a first down.

2006 Week 11 vs WAS (6 / 4 / 64 / 1 rec)

Galloway was the most targeted Buccaneers' receiver, finishing with seven for the game. He was able to come down with four balls for 64 yards, including a touchdown reception from 34 yards out. Galloway was targeted in the red zone in the third quarter, but the pass bounced off of him and fell into the hands of Tampa Bay TE Anthony Becht.

2006 Week 12 vs DAL (9 / 3 / 71 / 0 rec)

Galloway was the leading receiver for Tampa Bay, picking up 71 yards on three catches. He was also the most targeted receiver with seven targets, but most of his production came in the first quarter. Galloway started strong with a 53 yard catch in the opening period, a play where Dallas coverage broke down and left Galloway wide open about 35 yards downfield. Galloway also added another 13 yard catch for an additional first down on the same drive where he made a nice catch on the outside by leaping and reaching over his defender for the catch. After the first quarter, however, Galloway had difficulties being productive. He was the intended recipient of another deep ball in the first quarter, but DB Roy Williams stepped in front of an under thrown ball for an interception about 35 yards from the original line of scrimmage. Galloway had two more targets in the second quarter, including one where he momentarily came open in the end zone, but Gradkowski did not get rid of the ball fast enough to hit Galloway at that moment. The pass was thrown about a second too late, which gave Dallas' CB Anthony Henry time to catch up to Galloway and knock the pass away. The second target was thrown behind Galloway on a ten yard crossing route. Two passes were in Galloway's direction in the second half. He was covered well on the first, a pass about 20 yards deep, but the good coverage kept Galloway away from the catch. Galloway was able to make a short catch of five yards on his final target in the fourth quarter, but it was most definitely a whimper of a finish after starting the game with a bang.

2006 Week 13 vs PIT (7 / 3 / 37 / 0 rec, 1 / 7 / 0 rush)

Galloway had Tampa's long reception of the day on a 24 yard catch in the third quarter but could only manage three receptions for the third consecutive week. His first two receptions and a seven yard end around were in the second quarter and he was the target of QB Bruce Gradkowski's first interception in the first quarter.

2006 Week 14 vs ATL (9 / 5 / 64 / 0 rec)

Galloway could not duplicate his big game in the first meeting with Atlanta, catching five passes for 64 yards and being targeted nine times. He had a few balls that were poorly thrown bounce off his hands, but Galloway had to make big adjustments in order to try to bring them down.

2006 Week 15 vs CHI (14 / 3 / 107 / 1 rec)

Galloway was effectively covered for much of the game, but was able to finish with three catches for 107 yards and a touchdown. The touchdown reception came on a 63 yard reception from Rattay in the fourth quarter. Galloway was by far the most targeted Buccaneers receiver with 14, but managed to come down with just three catches.

2006 Week 16 vs CLE (5 / 2 / 34 / 0 rec)

Galloway was relatively quiet on the afternoon in his return to the state of Ohio, but received significant commentary time on how he is still one of the fastest wide receivers in the game.

2006 Week 17 vs SEA (11 / 8 / 118 / 1 rec)

Galloway was by far QB Tim Rattay's favorite target and was the only Buccaneers' WR to catch more than one pass. They obviously had their timing in sync as a handful of Galloway's completions came on quick slant routes. Galloway finished with 118 yards on eight catches and the Bucs only touchdown.

2005 Week 1 vs MIN (7 / 5 / 97 / 0 rec, 1 / 0 / 0 rush)

Galloway is known as a dependable receiver, and he showed why on Sunday as he came up with two big plays. He made an excellent catch on a ball thrown behind him for 30 yards to set up the first touchdown and made another 36 yard reception to set up a Matt Bryant field goal. He finished with 97 yards and seemed to be slightly favored by Griese when he needed a big play even though Clayton received more targets.

2005 Week 3 vs GB (8 / 5 / 53 / 2 rec)

Galloway had a pass intended for him broken up by Michael Hawkins. He was the recipient of Griese's five yard touchdown pass in the first quarter. Galloway made a second touchdown reception of ten yards in the second quarter. He made a 12 yard reception over the middle in the fourth quarter.

2005 Week 4 vs DET (13 / 7 / 166 / 1 rec, 1 / 4 / 0 rush)

It was a career high game for Joey Galloway. He made two receptions to open the game for Tampa Bay and he gained a combined 36 yards. He made a 20 yard reception that helped to set up Michael Pittman's touchdown. During the first drive of the third quarter, Galloway made an 80 yard touchdown reception, it was thrown over the middle and Galloway simply outran the Lions' defense to score. After making a 12 yard reception near the end of the third quarter, Galloway suffered a cramp and left the game for a while to get rehydrated.

2005 Week 5 vs NYJ (10 / 5 / 87 / 0 rec)

Galloway has become Brian Griese's favorite target and seems to be the Buccaneers' only viable passing option. It seems as though Galloway has made the team forget that Michael Clayton is on the team. You know that every time Griese drops back in the pocket at a critical point in the game, he is looking to throw the ball to Galloway, who ended his Sunday with five receptions for 87 yards. His longest catch of the game was for 26 yards, but it was the last play of the game in a desperate attempt to score.

2005 Week 6 vs MIA (14 / 9 / 96 / 1 rec)

Galloway continued his hot play of late, hauling in nine catches for 96 yards and a seven yard score. He was clearly the most targeted receiver, getting 14 looks (more than two times more than any other Buccaneers' receiver).

2005 Week 8 vs SF (13 / 8 / 149 / 1 rec)

Galloway continued to lead the way for the Tampa Bay receivers, with eight catches for 149 yards, including a 78 yard touchdown catch. He showed he still has the explosiveness and speed that has always made him a threat, when he took the short five yard hitch pass from Simms, and burned the 49ers' defense for the long score. Five of his catches for the game were for first downs and he led the Bucs receivers with 13 targets.

2005 Week 9 vs CAR (13 / 5 / 83 / 1 rec)

Galloway was by far the favorite target of Chris Simms in this game. His biggest contribution came on the Buccaneers' second drive when he caught a 50 yard touchdown pass, beating Mike Minter at the goal line. Galloway was targeted in the end zone on a fourth down play and drew a pass interference call to set up a Mike Alstott touchdown from the one yard line. Galloway does not appear to have lost any of his speed and Simms seems to be as focused on him as Griese was.

2005 Week 10 vs WAS (12 / 7 / 131 / 1 rec)

Galloway was Chris Simms' favorite target, and was targeted all over the field all game long. After the Redskins' first turnover, Galloway caught a 34 yard pass from Simms to set up Mike Alstott's first touchdown run. The play was a controversial one, as Galloway didn't appear to get both feet down in bounds, but it was ruled a force-out by the official. Late in the first half, Galloway was able to find an opening across the middle, caught the ball, and was able to outrun the safety into the end zone for a 24 yard touchdown, his seventh this season. Late in the game with his team desperate to score, Galloway made a spectacular one handed grab down the middle of the field. The ball was overthrown and Galloway fell after stretching to catch it, but had the throw been on target Galloway would have scored easily. Galloway's speed made him hard to cover, and he figures to be a significant contributor down the stretch.

2005 Week 11 vs ATL (5 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

On a day where Simms completed only 11 passes, Galloway was unable to finish the day with a reception. One of the leading receivers in the league this year was targeted five times, but he never really seemed to be open and Simms never threw him a very good ball when he looked his way.

2005 Week 12 vs CHI (8 / 7 / 138 / 0 rec)

Galloway had no receptions last week, but he made up for his goose egg with seven receptions for 138 yards. He was the only player on the team that caught more than two passes, and he once again looked like the only one that Simms looked for when the Buccaneers needed a big play. His longest catch of the day was in the first quarter for 39 yards, which set up a Buccaneers field goal and their first score of the game. He also made a nice move around his defender for a 30 yard reception in the fourth quarter, which put the Buccaneers close to field goal range when they were down by three points.

2005 Week 13 vs NO (9 / 5 / 75 / 1 rec)

Galloway caught the only touchdown of the game, a 30 yard catch and run in the second quarter. He should have had a second one but dropped what would have been a 39 yard touchdown in the final period. Galloway was QB Chris Simms' favorite target, getting nine chances for a reception.

2005 Week 14 vs CAR (8 / 4 / 39 / 0 rec)

Galloway caught a quick seven yard hitch on the first Tampa Bay series setting up a third and short. On the following play Galloway ran a fly route and had CB Ken Lucas beat deep, but QB Chris Simms put the ball a bit too far out in front of him. On the second Buccaneers possession Galloway caught a deep cross to convert a third and ten and quickly followed that up with a slant that converted a third and seven. Galloway ran mostly underneath routes all game long. He dropped two passes in the game.

2005 Week 15 vs NE (10 / 4 / 38 / 0 rec)

Galloway, Tampa Bay's leading receiver, was targeted a team high eleven times in this game. He had receptions of 15, five, nine, and nine yards. Galloway dropped two passes. Though first was broken up by Ellis Hobbs, Galloway did not have any excuse for the second drop, as he was wide open on a fourth and one play.

2005 Week 16 vs ATL (12 / 8 / 97 / 0 rec)

Galloway was once again the main weapon in the Buccaneers passing game, being targeted 15 times and catching eight passes for 97 yards. He had a beautiful catch along the sideline in overtime, showing great concentration and getting both feet in bounds to set up a potential game winning field goal attempt that was no good.

2005 Week 17 vs NO (8 / 4 / 38 / 2 rec)

Galloway had nine balls thrown his way, and hauled in four receptions for 38 yards, including touchdown scores from four and seven yards out. He also had a 44 yard touchdown reception called back for a holding penalty.
