Entering the 2022 season, the NY Giants front office was left with one pressing question: who will be Big Blue’s quarterback in 2023 and beyond? Daniel Jones’ play in ’22 should leave no doubt, as he is their guy.
Jones’ season was revolutionary. Danny Dimes set career highs in completions, passing yards, average yards per pass completion, passer rating, QBR, rushing attempts, rushing yards, rushing touchdowns, games played, and fourth-quarter comebacks. The Giants quarterback also set a career-high in passing attempts while posting the fewest interceptions and fumbles of his career. The new question surrounding Jones: how much should he get paid?
He will get at least $30 million a year this offseason, which will surprise people, but it shouldn’t. The narrative around Jones has not caught up to reality. Jones is an efficient quarterback whose playing style will win the Giants a lot of games in the future. Jones is a Top-10 quarterback in the NFL and has a better long-term future than all but seven QBs. In this piece, we explain why.
