Daniel Jones continues to get ripped for his terrible play on Monday night and rightfully so. The fifth-year signal-caller looked like a lost rookie in the 24-3 NY Giants defeat to the Seattle Seahawks in Week 4. There were plenty of low points for Jones, of course including his pick-six.
Devon Witherspoon knew what Jones was going to do all along. The first-rounder picked off Jones and took it back to the house for a 97-yard score. Jones made an awful decision. It's easy to be a couch quarterback, but the fact that he didn't see Darren Waller is wild.
A new angle from the stands has made its way to social media and people can't believe it. Waller, the Giants biggest offseason acquisition, was ready to haul in his first Giants TD. Jones had other ideas:
Daniel Jones missing Darren Waller for an easy touchdown is infuriating
Why, Daniel, why? Jones was dealing with terrible protection all night, but he rushed his decision here and made a nightmare call. Parris Campbell had no chance to get to the ball, but Witherspoon sure did. Had the Giants scored on this drive, it would have cut their dificit to 14-10.
Instead, Witherspoon's unreal INT turned off the lights for the home team. Brian Daboll was furious with Jones, throwing a tablet in disgust while going over things with his signal-caller. Hey, everyone was just as upset with Danny Dimes.
Jones signed a four-year, $160 million extension this offseason. A lot of people felt he was worthy of that contract after he powered the Giants to a 9-7-1 record last year, plus a trip to the postseason. Now, though, the G-Men are 1-3 on the year and Jones is looking like the worst QB in the division.
Life is rough for the Big Blue faithful. Jones needs to turn things around, but there isn't a lot of optimism that he or this team will be able to save the campaign.
