Daniel Jones’s career is in a do or die state
The New York Giants, like most NFL teams have a lot of questions heading into the upcoming 2021 season. Whether it’s their offensive line, whether their new set of offensive weapons will come through or even whether or not rookie Azeez Ojulari is the edge rusher that they need to apply pressure on a consistent basis to opposing quarterbacks.
But the biggest question facing the Giants as a franchise is whether or not starting quarterback Daniel Jones is the franchise quarterback that this organization will have around for the next 10-plus years.
Many people weren’t fans of the Giants using the 6th overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft on Jones, but he silenced some of those critics with some good play as a rookie, but didn’t show improvement in 2020. Some of that could be because of a young offensive line and no clear-cut number one receiver.
Jones threw 24 touchdowns and 12 interceptions as a rookie, but only 11 touchdowns and 10 interceptions last season. Now a part of that could be because opposing teams now have film of him so he will need to adjust accordingly in year three.
If Jones can’t step up his game, the Giants will be using one of their two first round picks on a quarterback next April.
