9. Daniel Jones isn’t quite there yet
While there surely have been some ups and downs for the Giants offense, including a rough go of things on Day 3 of camp, Jones has looked pretty dang inconsistent. It’s not easy learning a totally different system, but Jones just when Jones appears to be getting into a groove, he then takes a step back.
On the plus side, we’ve even seen Jones showcase his wheels a bit, which could be an added benefit to having Daboll and Mike Kafka in town. Jones was asked about his contract situation and the uncertainty of his future with the team, but he made it clear he’s not going to worry about what might or might not happen.
At the end of the day, Jones needs to keep his mind focused on the upcoming season and nothing else. Jones understands that he needs to deliver this year for the team if he wants to be back next fall. With Jones out of contract after the 2022 campaign, this is the definition of a make or break campaign for him.
In order for the NY offense to reach its full potential, Jones will need to step his game up and look like a former first-round quarterback. Again, consistency has been an issue for him and that’s going to have to change as soon as possible. Otherwise, more people might be calling for Tyrod Taylor to get some reps.
