Is Daniel Jones going to be able to silence his haters in 2024? That's the $1 million question everyone has in mind, as the NY Giants quarterback is coming off a brutal 2023. Jones was given a $160 million deal last offseason and he simply didn't live up to the hype last fall.

Now, Jones, still recovering from a torn ACL, has one last chance to prove his worth to Brian Daboll and Joe Schoen this campaign. Not many people think he'll be able to perform well - there's buzz he may not even start Week 1.

The team over at Pro Football Focus doesn't think too highly of Jones either, as they've ranked him the No. 29 QB in the league. That's the fourth-worst starter in the game for those of you keeping track at home.

Daniel Jones has countless haters leading up to the 2024 season

"Jones was the third-ranked quarterback in PFF grade on his own team last year — behind Tyrod Taylor and Tommy DeVito. Jones played in just six games in 2023 and was basically either elite or one of the worst-graded quarterbacks in a given week, with no in-between. He is a good athlete whose rushing production and ability to escape the pocket have always been a big part of his game. But in four of his five years with the Giants, he has finished with more turnover-worthy plays than big-time throws. His average depth of target has also been low over the past three seasons."

Jones falls under 'The holdovers' section of PFF's piece, which isn't a great place to be. Entering the new campaign, the expectation is that Schoen and Co. will move on from the former No. 6 overall pick after this season, as there will be no more guaranteed money on the table for him.

Should Jones ball out and get back to his 2022 form, then maybe the door could be left open for him to keep his job, but that feels a bit unlikely at this point. If anything, Giants fans should get mentally ready for Drew Lock to potentially take over the starting role at some point in '24.

Throughout his career with the G-Men, Jones hasn't been able to stay healthy on a consistent level, which can't be the case for your franchise QB. Schoen took a gamble in giving Jones his big-time extension and it hasn't paid off, not one bit.
