Daniel Jones has problems that he can easily fix
It seems like for every great play New York Giants’ quarterback Daniel Jones makes he makes a few mistakes. One thing he needs to stop doing is forcing passes instead of throwing the football away.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ head coach Bruce Arians knows how costly turnovers are after Jameis Winston threw 30 interceptions last season with the Bucs and he gave his thoughts on Jones following Monday night’s game.
“The young quarterback, he’s still trying to do too much,” Arians told reporters. “When you’re in the grasp of those guys, that cost them basically the ball game throwing those two picks. But God bless him, he is hard to handle and he’s a kid that thinks he can make a play.”
Jones knows he needs to get better. He did make some progress during the game after throwing a pass away on the Giants’ final offensive drive instead of forcing the throw.
“Those were costly mistakes for us and something that I have to continue to work on and improve,” Jones said. “The message [from the coaches] is to understand when it’s not there and to get the ball out of my hand and to make sure I’m preventing the big mistakes.
“The communication is clear, the coaching is clear and I just need to be a better job applying it.”
The encouraging thing about Jones flaws is that they’re mental, not physical. His issues are simple things that can be corrected.
