Daniel Jones Will Get Benched At Some Point This Season

I am here to apologize to any and all New York Giants fans out there, but Daniel Jones will ride the bench at some point during this upcoming season. The reason being? He’s simply just garbage. Jones has flashed very little promise during his tenure with the Giants, and playing in the easiest division in football this shouldn’t be the case. When Dak Prescott went down with an injury last season, Jones should’ve taken the throne as the best QB in the division. Jones has shown he was not worth the sixth overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.

Why Pretend He Is Any Good?

I mentioned this on the latest episode of Ballz Deep, but if your Quarterback has a wide-open, long touchdown run and the only thing that stops him is the turf monster, this guy isn’t THE guy.

It makes me laugh how the official NFL Twitter page tried to spin this as this huge positive when the story is how Daniel Jones tripped over LITERALLY NOTHING. This is the guy you want leading your offense for years to come? He can’t even run in a straight line without tripping over himself. How did this guy even get drafted?

Now listen, I won’t sit here and say that he has had the most help during his time in New York. Last year, in particular, his receiving corp was awful and Saquon Barkley went down with a torn ACL. The Giants addressed the receiving group by adding Kenny Golladay. The addition of Golladay and the return of Barkley will help Jones for sure, but this dude just doesn’t have the talent, the mindset, or the skillset to be a competent starting Quarterback in the NFL.

The Stats Back Me Up

Daniel Jones, in his rookie year, started 12 games, threw for 24 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. He threw for 3,027 yards on a completion percentage of 61.9%, the 24th in the league. His next season was a major regression. In 14 games started, his touchdowns WENT DOWN TO 11! That’s 29th in the league! That’s one more than Nick Foles who only started 7 games last season! YPG is 26th in the league, 19th in the league in yards (which he was only 500 higher than Nick Mullens who only started 8 games last season). This guy has proven he can not be the guy anywhere in this league.

I read all these articles about how this is going to be a breakthrough year for Daniel Jones, how he will make that leap into being what the New York Giants need him to be. Giants fans all over the US are excited to see this offense fire on all cylinders. But I am here to tell you that is but a pipe dream. This offense, and this team, go nowhere with Jones behind center. Jones will ride the bench halfway through the season and be playing elsewhere come the 2022 NFL season.
