For all the negativity, we’ve heard about Deandre Baker‘s work habits, professionalism, and dedication. The opposite is true of Daniel Jones. On a recent conference call with the media, the New York Giants signal-caller said he has been working out in Charlotte, NC, with some local receivers during the NFL’s COVID-19 hiatus. He also spent time trying to fix his fumbling issues with various drills to increase his mindfulness about holding onto the ball.

A story broke a few days ago courtesy of former Big Blue receiver Bennie Fowler. After losing to Minnesota, Jones wanted to work on some adjustments he thought he needed to make. The pair got together for a late-night workout, and Jones did just that for 45 minutes. By the way, Fowler wasn’t on the team at that time. The week before NYG cut him from the roster. Yet Fowler thought highly enough of Jones to help him out.

The value of good coaching isn’t always quantifiable. Fans know it when they see it. The G-Men were not a well-coached team in 2019. That’s why Pat Shurmer and his staff, including offensive coordinator David Shula, are gone. Joe Judge is the new sheriff in town. He’s brought in a new set of deputies led by OC Jason Garrett.

Before he was the head coach in Dallas, Garrett was a quarterbacks coach under Nick Saban in Miami and then became the Pokes offensive coordinator. A former NFL QB himself, Garrett has worked well with several different quarterbacks he was responsible for. Garrett will be as crucial to Jones’ development in the next few years as Manning was in 2019.
