Quarterback named New York Giants’ biggest red flag in 2021

Over the first two seasons of Daniel Jones’ career, the New York Giants were remarkably thin in front of and around him. The team has had issues along the offensive line for nearly a decade, while their wide receivers and tight ends haven’t exactly alleviated any issues.

Compounding matters, Jones was forced to go along for the ride as the Giants switched coaches — from Pat Shurmur to Joe Judge — and subsequently changed offensive systems.

That’s a difficult adjustment for any young quarterback on its own, but things only got worse when the COVID-19 pandemic led to the cancelation of the 2020 preseason and turned most on-field offseason activities into virtual learning sessions. Then, during the regular season, Jones suffered a very serious injury and attempted to play through it.

The results and statistics were not spectacular despite the film showing some improvement. Accordingly, most are down on Jones and view him as someone who is almost guaranteed to fail.

As a result, the swings taken at Jones have increased in number over the past few weeks and that trend continued over at Bleacher Report where Kristopher Knox called quarterback the Giants’ “biggest red flag” headed into the 2021 regular-season.

The one big question is whether Daniel Jones can bounce back from last year’s disappointing campaign.

Jones showed promise as a rookie, throwing for 24 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. However, he was not good in 2020, passing for just 2,943 yards with 11 touchdowns and 10 interceptions while posting a passer rating of 80.4

Fumbles have been a constant issue for Jones, too, as he’s dropped the ball a whopping 29 times in two seasons. He has gone 8-18 as a starter.

While a better supporting cast should help Jones improve, he’s going to have to if the Giants have any hope of reaching the playoffs. Bad quarterback play can doom even the most promising of teams.

The lines on Jones have been drawn in the same way they were drawn on Eli Manning. After his early-career struggles, some wrote Manning off and then any success he ever had after that was either deemed “lucky” or the result of his teammates.

If and when Jones finds success in the NFL, that same cop-out mantra will be used. There’s no way that all of these critics will admit they’re wrong after digging in so deep.
