New York Giants quarterback assessment

Although the Giants quarterback position is SUPPOSED to be set for the future, I’m not happy with it. I think the Giants stretched way too high to get Daniel Jones at the No. 6 draft spot last year and I don’t think he’s “the guy.”

He showed glimpses of greatness. Most notably was his week 16 game against Washington. A team who had no left side at the linebacker position, as Pro-Bowler Ryan Kerrigan (89) didn’t play that game, and besides Landon Collins, had no secondary.

I also think they (Washington) might have tanked it at the end of the season. They gave up 37, 41 and 47 points in the last three games and more than 500 yards of offense over the last two.

So Daniel Jones’s stat line of 28 of 42 (67%), 352 yards, 5 TDs, 0 interceptions and a 132.1 passer rating may be a bit padded. As a side note, Barkley had 189 yards and 1 TD on only 22 rushes in the same game.

Do you honestly feel that Jones is a championship-caliber quarterback? Let’s get away from what his quarterback skills may or may not be.

If you check his stats in the games he played to the entirety, over the course of a 16 game season he would have totaled: 16 interceptions, 23 fumbles (13 lost) and 51 sacks.

To be fair, these poor stats can partially be due to a poor offensive line and receivers running incorrect routes, but still, these totals are REALLY bad. But folks… I got an idea. 💡😉
