Throughout OTAs and minicamp, NY Giants quarterback Daniel Jones was throwing the ball all over the field. Now, the next time we'll see Danny Dimes will be for training camp in late July. After that, Week 1 will be here before you know it.

It's been a memorable offseason for the signal-caller, who put the pen to paper on his $160 million deal. As soon as the details were announced for Jones' new contract, the haters were out in full force to bash him. Jones knows there's a lot of pressure on him to perform this season.

However, Jones isn't looking to impress anyone moving forward. Instead, he's just focused on being his best possible self to help this team win games in '23 and beyond.

NY Giants QB Daniel Jones has the right mindset leading up to the new campaign

Jones is always keeping things cool. Remember at this point last year? It was up in the air if he'd even be the starting signal-caller for the Giants, as plenty of people were calling for Tyrod Taylor to be the QB1 for Brian Daboll and Mike Kafka.

Jones went on to silence his doubters last fall and winter, powering the Giants to a 9-7-1 record. Not only that, but Jones was electric in the Wild Card Round win over the Vikings in Minnesota, tossing for 301 yards and two touchdowns, while adding 78 yards on the ground.

His strong '22 earned him his four-year extension and it also earned him countless new fans. This was the Jones that people had been waiting to see. While plenty of folks still think the Giants overpaid for him with his new deal, we can't ignore how the QB market has been set.

Come Week 1 against Dallas, we can't wait to see what Jones can do going up against Dak Prescott. This really feels like a statement game for the G-Men and Jones will need to deliver. If he does post a monster game, even his biggest of haters will need to quiet down.
