With the amount of NY Giants fans that made their way to MetLife Stadium on Friday night, you might have assumed that there was a regular season showdown underway. With plenty of supporters in the stands, the G-Men indeed put on a show in East Rutherford, with numerous positives and negatives to be taken away from things.
Was the team perfect on offense and defense? Absolutely not. In this piece, we take a look at four things in particular that stood out, including the up and down play of starting quarterback Daniel Jones.
4. Daniel Jones is still battling inconsistency
One moment, Jones can look like he’s ready to lock down the starting quarterback job for the long haul with the Giants. Then, on the very next play, he’ll remind people why the Giants have been linked with so many college standouts to use a first-round pick on at QB for the 2023 NFL Draft.
More of the same was on display for Jones in the Friday scrimmage. He just can’t keep things rocking when he’s looking sharp. This isn’t going to inspire a ton of confidence in the fanbase leading up to the first game of the regular season vs. the Titans. Plain and simple, Jones needs to keep improving.
We understand that he’s still working out some kinks in learning the new system, but we’re not in the spring anymore. Jones has had more than enough time to learn things. Now, it’s time for him to start executing at a high clip and make some big-time throws. While he did just that in the scrimmage, there were also some poorly thrown tosses. We’ve got to see him get better ASAP.
