Daniel Jones isn't the only one facing massive NY Giants pressure in 2024

Throughout the offseason, things have felt quite positive for the NY Giants. Despite the team going 6-11 last season, some big-time improvements have been made, with Brian Burns, Jon Runyan Jr., Jermaine Eluemunor, Malik Nabers and others joining the team. Losing Saquon Barkley and Xavier McKinney hurts, but Joe Schoen worked overtime to add talented pieces. So, are good things on the way?

It could come down to how Daniel Jones plays in '24, as the signal-caller is facing massive pressure this fall and winter. He's not the only one. In a new piece for NFL.com, writer Adam Rank released his 'State of the 2024 New York Giants' and he said both Jones and Daboll are up against it leading up to the new campaign.

Brian Daboll can't afford a rough season in Year 3 with the NY Giants

"It's an interesting time for the Giants. It wasn't so long ago that head coach Brian Daboll led Daniel Jones and Co. to the playoffs (and won a game) during his first season on the job, winning the Coach of the Year award in the process. Since then, well, it hasn't been great. A 40-0 loss to the Cowboys in the opener last season set the tone for a disastrous start that saw the G-Men lose five of their first six games. They won four of their last seven contests, but it was too little too late. Now it feels like there's a sense of unease following both Daboll and Jones into the 2024 season."

As Rank noted, it wasn't long ago that Daboll was a rockstar in East Rutherford. In 2022, his debut season as head coach with the team, the G-Men went 9-7-1 and made the postseason for the first time in six years. In the Wild Card Round, they stunned the Vikings.

The wheels fell off against the Eagles in the Divisional Round, though, and then just about everything went wrong last fall and winter. Despite '23 being a nightmare, this upcoming campaign has the potential to be a lot of fun for the NFC East side.

Again, though, it's going to come down to how Danny Dimes can perform. He's still recovering from his torn ACL, but in 7-on-7 action at OTAs, Jones has given fans some reasons to be excited. NY needs Jones and the rest of the team to bounce back. If they don't, then the seat is going to get red hot for Daboll and Co.
