Joe Schoen isn't going to back down. While some people may not believe him, the NY Giants general manager continues to praise injured quarterback Daniel Jones and he's sticking with him to be the team's starter moving forward.

At the NFL Combine, Schoen met with reporters and then answered some questions from Big Blue supporters about the state of the team. He was of course asked about Danny Dimes, with one fella named Charlie not holding back in going after No. 8. Schoen didn't mind getting the controversial question, but he also didn't waste a second in standing up for the veteran QB:

Joe Schoen still has full faith in QB Daniel Jones with the Giants

"What I see is I see a young man who has all the physical tools and athleticism to play quarterback in the NFL. I think there's some circumstances that were out of his control and some of that's one me in terms of bringing talent in on the offensive line or depth when injuries occur where he can have some success. Listen, Daniel's played well in some important games and again we have faith in Daniel. When he gets back healthy the expectation is he'll be the starter and we'll continue to try and surround him with the best supporting cast that we can so he can have success. "

That's how you back your quarterback. There's been plenty of speculation that Schoen could move into the Top 3 of the NFL Draft to take either Caleb Williams, Drake Maye or Jayden Daniels, but there's also a strong chance he actually does want to move forward with Jones and build around him.

If that's the case, then Malik Nabers or Rome Odunze should 100 percent be the selection at No. 6 overall and some major offensive line help in free agency/the later rounds would be fantastic business. Jones has countless haters on his back, with the list growing after the 2023 season.

The Giants went 6-11, with Jones only playing in six games due to a neck injury and his torn ACL. In the limited time he was on the field, he tossed for 909 yards, two touchdowns and six interceptions. Not what anyone was expecting after he put the pen to paper on his $160 million deal.

Jones is making strides in his rehab and it's looking like he'll be ready to go for the start of training camp. Then when Week 1 gets here in September, plenty of signs are pointing to him leading the offense out onto the field - that is unless Schoen goes after Williams, Maye or Daniels in the end.
