Hasn’t NY Giants quarterback Daniel Jones done more than enough to get people off his back? With Jones under center, the G-Men have proven just about everyone wrong by booking their trip to the postseason.
Even more, a lot of people think that Big Blue has what it takes to travel to Minnesota and stun the Vikings in the Wild Card Round. It looks like NFL analyst Michael Robinson doesn’t think that will happen, though.
While speaking on NFL Total Access, Brian Baldinger passionately backed the Giants to take down the Vikings in the Wild Card Round – saying he’s confident in the aerial attack that NY has right now. Robinson totally disagreed with him.
Daniel Jones still has NY Giants haters he needs to prove wrong
From the looks of that video, Robinson has close to zero belief in Jones being able to power New York to a win on Sunday at U.S. Bank Stadium. Yes, the Giants don’t have the best passing game in the league, but let’s not forget that Jones has been able to make some elite throws throughout the season and Brian Daboll trusts him in pressure sitatuons.
If Jones was so bad, then why would Joe Schoen be inching closer to getting a new contract done with Danny Dimes? On the season, Jones has thrown for more than 3,200 yards and 15 touchdowns, while adding seven more scores on the ground. He can hurt you with his strong arm and wheels.
Oh, and in case Robinson forgot, Jones tossed for 344 yards and a touchdown the last time these two teams met on Christmas Eve. We’re just going to ignore the fact that Jones was able to throw the ball all over the field against the Minnesota secondary? Give us a break, man.
Jones isn’t worried about any outside noise and he’s just focused on the task at hand. If Jones ends up balling out on Sunday and leading the G-Men to the Divisional Round, Robinson is going to owe him a public apology. Danny Dimes has recorded several head-turning wins this season for the Giants. Here’s to hoping he’s got at least one more on the way.
