2. The Giants invested $160 million into Danny Dimes
This offseason, general manager Joe Schoen had a tough decision on his hands. It came down to either placing the franchise tag on Jones or inking him to a massive contract. Schoen and Co. got things done at the last minute, having Jones put the pen to paper on a big-time, four-year deal worth $160 million. The Giants brass believes he's the QB of the future.
So, after five starts in 2023, Big Blue is just going to forget about the money they gave Jones during the offseason and just go with Taylor as the full-time starter? Yeah, that's never going to happen. The offensive line has been banged up and they haven't been able to keep Jones on his feet. That was made clear when he was ROCKED on the play he injured his neck at Miami.
Remember how strong Jones looked last year when this team was healthy, especially up front? Jones was making plays with his strong right arm and impressive wheels. He had this team at 9-7-1 at the end of the regular season and put on a show in the Wild Card Round win over the Vikings. In that win, Jones tossed for 301 yards and two touchdowns, while adding 78 yards on the ground. The potential is there for Jones to get back to that level of play, no doubt.
