It's safe to say that NY Giants quarterback Daniel Jones had a game to forget in Week 3 against the San Francisco 49ers. Jones completed 22 of 32 attempts for 137 yards and an interception in a 30-12 loss.
After the game, Danny Dimes, who signed his $160 million contract this offseason, had some haters talking about his poor performance, as several 49ers defensive players commented that he did not look comfortable throwing the ball. Linebacker Dre Greenlaw took it even more personally when he spoke to the San Francisco Chronicle's Mike Silver.
"A lot of people who make all that money don’t even deserve it. I think they took a chance [when they paid him]. I mean, he’s not bad. And if you ain’t got nothing better."- Greenlaw told Silver
While things have not looked great for NY through the first three weeks of the season, there's still plenty of time for Danny Dimes and the Giants to turn things around, and fans can be happy to know that No. 8 is not fazed at all by the trash talk and negative comments he has received around the league.
Daniel Jones doesn't care about 49ers players calling him out
After Greenlaw and his teammates commented negatively about Big Blue's performance and DJ's contract, the Giants' quarterback was asked his thoughts. Jones stated that he saw what was said but wasn't too amused and was more focused on getting back on track. Jones has other things to worry about than people in the Bay Area trolling him.
The Giants' priority is improving on a week-by-week basis as they look to make a playoff push for the second consecutive year. The team has a must-win game this week at home against the Seattle Seahawks on Monday, and Danny Dimes doesn't have the time to care about a team that the Giants will only face once this season.
The last time the Giants played at MetLife Stadium, they lost 40-0 to the Dallas Cowboys in Week 1. Now, New York will prepare to face a talented Seahawks team on that same turf and hope to change the narrative. Jones has a great chance to silence his haters if he can record a strong game in primetime.
