Can the NY Giants save their season? At 1-3 on the year, there's a good chance the G-Men move to 1-4 this weekend after a showdown with the Miami Dolphins. After that, a Sunday Night Football dance with the Buffalo Bills awaits. In order for disaster to be averted, Daniel Jones is going to have to be at his best.
However, with the way he has looked thus far in 2023, not a lot of people have faith in Danny Dimes to get the Big Blue offense moving in the right direction. Some around the league think he's not the right man for the job either?
In a new article from The Athletic's Mike Sando, he spoke with sources about the poor QB play for both the Giants and the Jets. One anonymous defensive coach didn't hold back in going after Jones, saying in short that he's making far too many mistakes that can be avoided.
Daniel Jones continues to fail in living up to his $160 million extension
"It’s very noticeable how little they make him play like an NFL quarterback. He has the easiest reads and the easiest concepts, and still he does not throw the ball accurately. He doesn’t throw to the correct leverage, doesn’t throw the receivers open, just doesn’t do it. I’m giving you zero opinions. This is all the tape shows."- Unknown coach to Mike Sando
That coach absolutely torched Jones. Unfortunately for Giants fans, we've seen time and time again that he has failed to live up to his $160 million extension. If you want to talk about him about missing open receivers, look no further than the Monday Night Football loss to the Seahawks.
In that 24-3 defeat to the NFC West side, Jones blew it on multiple occasions, including the Devon Witherspoon pick-six. On that particular play, tight end Darren Waller was open in the end zone, with everyone, including Brian Daboll, hoping Jones would look his way.
Instead, Jones forced a pass attempt to Parris Campbell and we all saw how things ended. Also during MNF, on 3rd-and-long, Jones ran out of the pocket and Wan'Dale Robinson was wide open, doing a jumping jack to try and get his attention. The play was there to be made, but Jones choked.
The play of the offensive line has been a nightmare and not having Saquon Barkley the past two weeks has been rough for the offense too. Still, Jones just isn't getting the job done and the fact that coaches around the league aren't taking him seriously is yet another downer for the fanbase.
