Chris Canty needs to see Daniel Jones play well consistently
New York Giants’ owner John Mara as well as the rest of the organization, including head coach Joe Judge, have been very supportive of quarterback Daniel Jones despite his ups and down during his first two seasons in the NFL.
Mara recently made it clear that he believes Jones has what it takes to lead them to a Super Bowl.
“Yes he does [have what it takes],” Mara said. “I can say that without any hesitation. . . I don’t see why [he couldn’t win multiple titles]. If we put the right pieces around him.”
Former Giants’ defensive lineman Chris Canty on the other hand isn’t a believer in Jones.
“I don’t know how [Mara] can say that definitively based on what we’ve seen from DJ his first couple of years. I mean, he’s got 39 turnovers in two seasons starting. It’s hard to win consistently when your quarterback is turning the ball over 20 times a year,” Canty said during an appearance on Keyshawn, JWill & Zubin. “I just don’t know how you make that statement.
“Based on the production — or lack thereof — there’s no way you can have conviction that Daniel Jones is your guy going forward,” he said
I think Canty has a point, but as the owner of the Giants, Mara has to be optimistic. One thing is certain and that is that Jones will have to weapons to succeed in 2021, so we will soon find out if he is legit.
