It's been a major topic of conversation throughout the offseason: should the NY Giants have moved on from Daniel Jones and focused on the future elsewhere? It's still something that's going to be debated throughout the 2024 campaign.

However, general manager Joe Schoen isn't giving up on Danny Dimes and while there aren't a lot of people in his corner, Fox Sports analyst Emmanuel Acho thinks Schoen made the right call in sticking with No. 8. Why? For two clear reasons. No. 1 would be that Jones has never had a Pro Bowl wideout to work with. No. 2 would be that the same can be said for his offensive linemen:

Will Daniel Jones be able to save his NY Giants career this season?

People will be quick to point out that Andrew Thomas was a Second Team All-Pro selection in 2022, but the fact of the matter is that the offensive line as a whole has been a mess for this team for a while now. Things were a disaster in 2023, we don't have to tell you that.

With the line giving up a league worst 85 sacks, it was an obvious choice to move on from offensive line coach Bobby Johnson. Everyone is praying to the Football Gods that Carmen Bricillo can get the guys up front to look like a solid group.

That will be massive for Jones. In addition to the rough OL play, Jones never has had a WR1 to work with. Kenny Golladay landed $72 million to be that guy, but he didn't come close to living up to the hype. Kadarius Toney was taken with a first-round pick and he was a complete headache.

Both areas appear to have been fixed, though, with Malik Nabers taken No. 6 overall in the 2024 draft, while Schoen signed Jon Runyan Jr. and Jermaine Eluemunor to help the OL finally reach a respectable level. A healthy Thomas will make a big-time difference too. Will Evan Neal? That remains to be seen.

In the first episode of Hard Knocks, Schoen was quite passionate when discussing why he still believed in Jones. He wants to see what he can do with the new offensive pieces in town and Acho is ready to see him try and prove his worth too. If Jones does, he'll silence a lot of haters. If he doesn't, then it will be time for him to pack his bags, because NY will surely part ways with him.
