If NY Giants fans didn't know about Seahawks first-round pick Devon Witherspoon before Monday night's showdown, they sure do now. Witherspoon had the play of the night, reading Daniel Jones like a book and taking back an interception 97 yards for an unreal pick-six.
Right before Witherspoon made his play, the Giants had put together their most impressive drive of the night and there was hope they'd get back in the game. Witherspoon ended everything on his INT. To make matters worse for Jones, the rookie DB was asked about the play and he basically said that Danny Dimes made it easy for him:
Devon Witherspoon quote on Daniel Jones has Giants fans losing their minds
That stings, no doubt about it. Witherspoon knew all along where Jones was going to go with the football. This is a first-year CB calling out a terrible flaw from a fifth-year signal-caller. At the end of the day, Jones shoud have never made this throw - he's got to be better than what he displayed vs. Seattle.
Brian Daboll was furious with Jones' decision. As you've probably seen by now, Coach Dabes was spotted throwing a tablet in anger when showing his quarterback the mind-blowing mistake. He had Darren Waller open in the end zone, but missed him.
The play of the offensive line has to be brought up, as they couldn't do much of anything throughout the night. The Seahawks finished with 11 sacks, which obviously should never happen. Jones barely had any time to scan the field.
However, whenever the line did do its job (which didn't happen often), Jones still didn't make the plays you'd hope to see out of him. This includes the pick-six. Witherspoon jumped on the ball and never looked back, leaving Jones in the dust on his way to the end zone.
Following the loss to the Seahawks, it really feels like the Giants are at rock bottom. With Miami and Buffalo next up on the schedule, a 1-5 start to the campaign feels like all but a lock.
