Daniel Jones needs to break the good records, not the bad ones
One of many problems that New York Giants’ quarterback Daniel Jones needs to fix heading into the upcoming season is his knack for fumbling the football.
ESPN’s Bill Barnwell wrote an article where he picked NFL players to break certain records. When it comes to Jones, he believes he will break the fumbling record.
The favorite: Daniel Jones, Giants
To put it politely, Jones has been a fumble factory for the Giants over his first two NFL seasons. The former Duke quarterback led the league in fumbles in both 2019 (18) and 2020 (11) despite playing only 12 full games in 2019 and 13 last season. He has 29 fumbles in 25 career games; over a full 17-game season, that would prorate to 19.7, pushing Jones toward the record. And while Giants fans might be inclined to write off 2019 as an aberration of a rookie season, consider what happened with our runner-up …
Barnwell has the runner-up to Jones being Indianapolis Colts’ quarterback Carson Wentz for the fumbling record.
With the NFL adding a 17th regular season game now, there is no doubt that many records will be broken. Hopefully Jones doesn’t fumble anymore though.
