From the moment it was announced that the NY Giants had signed Daniel Jones to his new four-year contract, people have been coming from out of the woodwork to try and bring down general manager Joe Schoen. Despite the contract details being a big win for Schoen and Co., a lot of people are refusing to believe that Jones can be a star in this league.

This is exactly what Colin Cowherd, who is no stranger to delivering terrible Giants opinions, thinks. On his show on Wednesday, Cowherd didn’t waste much time in bashing the Giants and Jones. If you ask Cowherd, Jones isn’t a playmaker in this league. Per Cowherd, he’s not even average.

Colin Cowherd ripping Daniel Jones is a complete and total joke

So, according to Cowherd, Jones is a ‘below average’ signal-caller? Ok buddy. No disrespect to Cowherd, but we’re going to go ahead and trust Schoen over a clown who has proven time and time again that he has no idea what in the world he’s talking about. People believe in Jones and so do we.

Schoen worked until basically the final minutes to get an extension done with Jones, and it’s a move that’s going to provide the team with plenty of flexibility from a salary cap standpoint. Instead of he $32.4 million that would have come with the non-exclusive franchise tag, Year 1’s hit will be around $18.5 million.

The Giants are at a point too where they couldn’t afford to start from scratch at the signal-caller spot. Jones did more than enough in 2022 to prove to Schoen and head coach Brian Daboll that he was worthy of a new contract.

NY ended up spending a little bit more than it wanted to in order to get things finalized with Jones, but it was all worth it in the end. Just because Cowherd hates the move, it doesn’t mean that this was a bad decision from the Big Blue GM at all. Cowherd needs to quiet down, seriously.
