This is 100 percent the kind of positive talk that NY Giants quarterback Daniel Jones was ready to see. As you’ve probably read a time or two, virtually everyone thinks Danny Dimes’ time in East Rutherford will come to a close following next season. Countless folks think general manager Joe Schoen will go with a new franchise quarterback in next spring’s NFL Draft.
NFL insider Mike Garafolo doesn’t think that’s going to be the case. Instead, could the Giants use their first-round selection to fill a different position of need? While speaking on Good Morning Football, Garafolo passionately backed Jones and said he’ll not only put on a show this campaign, but he’ll be back with the team the following year as well.
NY Giants QB Daniel Jones is ready to quiet down all of his doubters
"“I think he will thrive, I think he will ascend,” Garafolo said of the NY signal-caller. “I think he’s going to play better. I believe that Daniel Jones under Brian Daboll, with a better offensive line, and a better situation this year, is going to cement his status as the Giants starter in 2023.”"
Who expected Garafolo to speak so highly of Jones? This truly does come as a major surprise. As we mentioned above, so many different experts and analysts have said that this is going to be the last campaign for Jones with the G-Men. When New York used the No. 6 overall pick on him back in 2019, the hope was. that he’d get NY back to a highly competitive level.
Instead, Jones has struggled and there’s been a game of musical chairs when it comes to his head coaches and offensive coordinators. Now, though, the NY fanbase has all the belief in the world in Brian Daboll and OC Mike Kafka to get the offensive unit back on track. These are two brilliant minds, and them helping out Jones is only going to be beneficial for the fourth-year QB.
The fact of the matter is this: if Jones struggles this season, he’s going to be on his way out of East Rutherford and the Giants will then have to find his long-term replacement. If the opposite goes down and he shoes he can be a stud QB, then a new contract could be coming for him. If you ask Garafolo, he believes Jones will play his way into a new deal with the Giants.
