This was not what we expected from Daniel Jones this season. After inking his $160 million deal this offseason with the NY Giants, the expectations were through the roof for Danny Dimes. Through the first five weeks of the campaign, though, Jones and the Giants are 1-4. Woof.
There's no question that the offensive line has been a nightmare, which of course played the main role in Jones injuring his neck on Sunday in the loss to the Dolphins. However, Jones has been a big-time disappointment overall. We hate to pick on the guy, but these four plays in particular have been pretty rough to watch through Week 1-5:
4. Missing a wide open Wan'Dale Robinson
The disaster that was the Giants Monday Night Football game against the Seahawks is going to be a common theme here. This was one of Jones' worst games in recent memory and it started here. Jones was flushed out of the pocket, rolled to his right and safely threw it out of bounds. if you were watching the broadcast, it was frustrating to see him throw it out of bounds on a third down, but you figured it was the safe move because everyone was covered. The problem: Wan'Dale Robinson was wide open 20 yards downfield.
So much so, Robinson was literally jumping up and down trying to get Jones' attention. If you're Jones, how can you miss him there? How can you not see a player as animated as Robinson was and throw it to the sideline?
It's not like he was on the other side of the field. He was headed to the right sideline with Jones. For a team that needs to start making more explosive plays, this was a terrible miss for Jones.
