Is Daniel Jones in for a big season?
You can argue that the New York Giants have the offensive talent to get to the playoffs this coming season. A lot of it will hinge on whether or not starting quarterback Daniel Jones plays like a franchise quarterback or not.
What’s really interesting is that Michael Balko of the NFL Analysis Network has Jones putting up some good numbers and leading the Giants to 10 wins, which could end up being enough for a playoff spot.
Daniel Jones is about to enter a boom or bust season that could 100 percent determine the outcome of the rest of his NFL career.
The Giants have officially given Jones everything he could need to be a successful starting quarterback and all eyes will be on him to prove he can get the job done. I think Jones will actually have a vastly improved season, which is contrary to popular belief, but the weapons the Giants have given him are top tier.
My projected stat line for Jones are a 10-7 record, 59.9 completion percentage, 4,227 passing yards, 29 passing touchdowns, and 11 interceptions.
I would hope that Jones’ completion percentage would be higher.. He completed 61.9 percent of his passes as a rookie and over 62 percent in his second season. But overall, a 10-7 season and the stats listed above might be enough for him to keep his job.
You could say that 11 interceptions aren’t bad, but the key for Jones will also be whether he fumbles the ball or not. He also needs to stay healthy, which he’s had a hard time doing over his first two seasons.
