Just about everyone has been standing in line waiting for their turn to take a shot at quarterback Daniel Jones. The NY Giants signal-caller was a train wreck in the Monday Night Football loss to the Seahawks, with loads of people, including 49ers defensive end Arik Armstead, going after him.

Micah Parsons is on the other side of things, though. While Jones had a terrible showing, there's simply nothing you can say from a positive standpoint about the offensive line. They never gave Jones a chance to have a good game. This is what Parsons noted while watching, backing Danny Dimes on social media:

Micah Parsons did his best to silence the Daniel Jones haters

This isn't the first time Parsons has backed Jones, as he called out the Giants for failing to protect the QB late in the Week 1 loss to Dallas. Now, Parsons is showcasing a play where the NY hosses basically let the Seattle pass-rushers run free at Jones.

Seriously, what was Jones expected to do there? He got the snap and then had less than a second until he had someone right on him. Major changes are needed for this offensive line, otherwise things are only going to keep getting worse for Jones and this offense as a whole.

Justin Pugh will begin his Giants reunion on the practice squad

In some good news for this team, which everyone needs, it was announced on Tuesday that former first-round pick Justin Pugh has re-signed with Big Blue. However, he's going to have to earn his stripes, as he'll begin on the practice squad.

While speaking on his podcast, Pugh said his free-agency process was an 'ego check' but that he's ready to now prove to the Giants that their risk will be worth the reward. Pugh will indeed begin on the practice squad, but he's hoping that he can show the team he's still got plenty of gas left in the tank.

With the way the Giants line has looked in recent weeks, Pugh being elevated to the 53-man roster could happen before you know it. If he can practice hard and his knee - Pugh is recovering from a torn ACL - doesn't give him any issues, then there's a great chance Pugh can make an impact the rest of the campaign.
