1. QB Daniel Jones

While a good bit of Daniel Jones' struggles can be blamed on the situation around him, a lot of it has simply been related to his poor decision-making both in the pocket, and when throwing the ball. This, combined with some great play from Tyrod Taylor in Jones' absence, has fans questioning whether or not he is the right QB for this Giants team.

Through five games, Jones completed 68.9 percent of his passes for 884 yards, two touchdowns, and six interceptions, while also fumbling the ball six times as well (four lost). While four of his interceptions have come off the hands of receivers, this doesn't change the fact that they are turnovers nonetheless.

Jones has looked slower making decisions, hasn't been nearly as accurate as in prior years, and has made a lot of mistakes similar to ones he has in the past that had fans questioning whether or not he was the right pick at No. 6 back in 2019. While there's still hope for him to turn it around once he's healthy, it's not looking great so far.

If Taylor continues to step up and perform well in Jones's absence, Daboll and the Giants are going to have to question who their starter should be moving forward. While Daboll has said there's currently no QB controversy, if the Giants keep winning under Taylor, he may have to remain the starter for the sake of the team. Jones is still dealing with a serious neck injury and Daboll has no idea when he'll be able to return.
