The real Giants team never got off the bus in the week 2 matchup vs the Bears. I’m sure it took an expletive deleted Joe Judge halftime speech to shake this team out of their coma and start to play in the second half.
The first quarter was abysmal for the Giants. To start the game, the Bears score on a 13 play seven-and-a-half-minute drive. When the Giants get the ball. On third down and 6 from their own 25, Jones get hit by Robert Quinn, and Jones fumbles the ball recovered by Khalil Mack on the Giants 20. Luckily for the Giants, Bears WR Anthony Miller dropped a 3rd and 6 pass and the Bears settled for a 34-yard field goal.
I was never a Daniel Jones fan! He is and has been a turnover machine. In 15 games (3 wins, 12 losses) he has fumbled the ball 19 times and lost 12 and has thrown 15 interceptions. This is a total of 27 turnovers in 15 games. You cannot win games like this. This is not what you get when you make a 6th pick overall. Yes, he is still young and the team has not been great but it is no excuse for such bad ball security. He cannot feel the pressure. For example, he got sacked in week 17 by the Eagles at the end of the game to cement the loss when they were driving. He never saw Quinn coming until it was too late. Joe Judge and the coaches have not coached the turnovers out of him in the off-season. If I was Dave Gettleman, I would consider drafting Trevor Lawrence, Justin Fields or Tray Lance. They are going to be at the top of the draft again. There are not that many teams looking for quarterbacks now. The Jaguars may keep Gardner Minshew. Gettleman will never do it and admit his mistake. The jury is still out and the final answer will come by the end of 2021. We shall see. The results are not good so far. I know Giants Nation still thinks he is next Dan Marino, so I am going against the grain here!Continue reading
