Brian Daboll: Tommy DeVito Has ‘Done A Good Job’ Improving
After more injuries for the New York Giants a few weeks ago, quarterback Tommy DeVito was named the starter. In his last two starts, the Giants have been demolished by the Las Vegas Raiders and Dallas Cowboys. Despite these tough outings, Giants head coach Brian Daboll has optimism.
“I think he’s a good young quarterback to work with,” Daboll said. “Try to improve him this week from last week.”
“Yeah, he’s done a good job improving,” Daboll said. “He’s a young player, he’s a young quarterback so a lot of things you go through. We’ll see if we can get him better this week than he was last week.“
Is he being serious? I think it is safe to say that the Giants season is officially over. DeVito had 86 passing yards, two passing touchdowns and an interception last weekend against the Cowboys. He was sacked five times and, to be fair, the Cowboys have one of the best pass-rushing defenses in the league.
DeVito has made four appearances this year and he believes that the game is starting to slow down for him.
“For sure. It happened in the Raiders game last Sunday, in the second half of the Raiders game is when it slowed down,” DeVito said, according to ESPN’s Jordan Raanan. “But, like I said, I feel good. But every week, every snap, everything that gets under my belt, it’s all positive.“
I just don’t believe this. Watching the games he has started doesn’t convince me that every snap is positive. In the next two weeks, he will have the chance to face weaker defenses in the Commanders and the Patriots. These will likely be his last two chances to prove something with Tyrod Taylor likely being cleared after their Week 13 bye week.
This team is very hard to watch. They just constantly look lost and are always frustrated. Everything that could’ve gone wrong this year has. With Jones out for the year and Taylor out for weeks, the lowest-ranked offense in the league is in DeVito’s hands, and it’s hard to believe that this is what their season has come to.
The collapse of Daboll and the Giants this year needs to be studied. It is hard to believe that this team was in the divisional round last year against the Eagles and Daboll won coach of the year. Even with Daniel Jones this year, the Giants were historically bad on offense. In no way can any quarterback on this roster fix this situation and it will just be another wasted year for New York. More tough years are likely ahead for this dumpster fire of a team.
