Over the past two weeks, we've heard nothing but good things on NY Giants quarterback Daniel Jones and his play at training camp. On Tuesday, the G-Men took the field with the Detroit Lions for the start of joint practices, with fans ready to see Danny Dimes do his thing.
Unfortunately, things haven't gone quite as planned for the $160 million signal-caller. According to insider Connor Hughes, Jones and the rest of the first-team offense struggled quite a bit going up against the Lions defense. Yes, it's still August and there's plenty of time to get things right, but this is pretty disappointing as well:

Well, that's definitely not what people were hoping to see. The Athletic's Dan Duggan was also on hand for the Giants session with the Lions and he was left less than impressed with the offense too. With these teams getting back on the field on Wednesday, Jones and Co. simply need to wake up.
Already on social media, the haters are out in full force to try and bring down Jones, Brian Daboll and the rest of the guys in blue. However, let's not overreact just yet. This was the first bad practice for these guys in a while.
The offense is still working things out and the new guys in town are still learning the sytem. This is all going to take some time to get things going on the right track. However, there was optimism that the Giants would be able to showcase the strides they've made in going up against an opposing defense for the first time.
That simply wasn't the case against the Lions, with defensive coordinator Aaron Glenn getting the first laugh vs. the Giants. Now, offensive coordinator Mike Kafka will look back on the film, as will Jones, to see what can be corrected before Wednesday's session. As you can tell, there's a lot for the offense to work on, as they won't want to record a repeat showing vs. Detroit.
