This is exactly what the NY Giants and fourth-year quarterback Daniel Jones needed. With OTAs getting started this week, that means it’s time for Jones and the rest of the offensive unit to learn the system brought in by head coach Brian Daboll and offensive coordinator Mike Kafka. The transition sure won’t be easy, but things are looking promising thus far.
The main reason for that is Jones and his new-found confidence. When he was running the show for former offensive coordinator Jason Garrett, things couldn’t have been more vanilla. Jones looked far from a former No. 6 overall pick and it showed in the worst way possible for the Giants as a whole. Things have changed in East Rutherford, though.
NY Giants QB Daniel Jones is ready to let it rip in 2022
"“I’m certainly confident in myself, the team we have, the coaches and the system,” Jones said. “I think we’re all learning it and we’re improving daily with it. There’s a lot of reasons to be confident. We’ve got to focus on what we’re doing now. We can’t focus on results and the season, that’s a long ways away. We’re focused on preparing now, practicing well, improving every day and making progress.”"
That’s a strong quote there from Jones and you can even tell from his body language in speaking with the media that he’s got a little bit more swagger. That’s great to see for the Giants fanbase, as countless people want to see the young signal-caller have a monster year in 2022 and prove so many of his doubters wrong.
Jones missed the majority of last season for New York due to his serious neck injury, but he’s back to full health and letting the ball rip in practice. Daboll has told him to throw the pigskin without fear and Jones is answering that call.
With New York going 4-13 in 2021, it’ll be Jones to have a big, big year to help the G-Men record more wins this fall. He’s certainly looking up to the challenge, so we’ll see just have to wait and see how big of a step he’ll be able to take once Week 1 arrives vs. the Titans.
