  Giants | Daniel Jones struggles on Day 3 of camp    Fri Jul 30, 02:15 PM

New York Giants QB Daniel Jones' performance on Day 3 of training camp was 'brutal,' according to NJ.com's Zack Rosenblatt. Jones struggled to show any chemistry with this top receivers, especially WR Kenny Golladay. While Rosenblatt acknowledged it is too early in camp to be negative, he wrote, 'There wasn't really anything positive to take away from Jones' performance.'

Footballguys view: It's Day 3 of camp, not the third preseason game of the year. Jones is in a make-or-break year, and it would be nice to hear better things coming out of Giants camp. It sounds like he's struggling mightily but has a chance to turn things around (as much as he can) before the start of the regular season.

  Giants | Coach happy with Daniel Jones' progress    Wed Jul 14, 06:48 PM

New York Giants QB Daniel Jones had shown solid growth with his play and leadership over the last year, according to head coach Joe Judge.

Footballguys view: Jones was under pressure early and often last year. Instead of taking the next step in his second season (2020) after flashing as a rookie (2019), Jones was under duress too much to do much of anything. This year, hopefully with better protection, Jones is in a make-or-break year. They improved the weapons around him and WR Kenny Golladay should help a lot. Having a healthy RB Saquon Barkley should help tremendously as well.

  Giants | Daniel Jones felt the heat last season    Mon Jul 12, 10:24 PM

New York Giants QB Daniel Jones was pressured on 30.3 percent of his drop-backs in 2020 - the highest percentage for any quarterback with at least 350 pass attempts - per Pro Football Reference.

Footballguys view: Jones didn't have much time to do anything last year with the Giants. He's in a make-or-break year this season and hopefully has better protection than he did in 2020. The return of a healthy RB Saquon Barkley and the addition of star WR Kenny Golladay should help.

  Giants | Daniel Jones working out with teammates    Sat Jul 3, 05:05 PM

New York Giants QB Daniel Jones has worked out with RB Saquon Barkley, WR Kenny Golladay, WR Sterling Shepard, WR Darius Slayton and WR David Sills leading up to training camp.

Footballguys view: Jones is in a make-or-break season in 2021. He's got the talent around him to play much better and more efficiently this season. The Giants added more weapons on offense and having a healthy Barkley will greatly improve the chances that Jones improves his play. He was sacked often in 2020 and that's why his decision-making skill seemed to take a step back from his rookie season. We'll see if better protection, better weapons and a stronger rushing attack propel Jones to a bounce-back season.

  Giants | Daniel Jones a turnover machine    Thu Apr 8, 10:24 PM

New York Giants QB Daniel Jones has 39 turnovers, 22 interceptions and 17 lost fumbles, in 27 career games.

Footballguys view: Jones needs to clean that up ...obviously. He's in a make-or-break season as the team's starter and they'll move on in 2022 if he doesn't prove he can be the franchise guy they envisioned when they took him in the first round of the 2018 NFL draft.

  Giants | Daniel Jones sets up workout    Mon Apr 5, 11:30 AM

New York Giants QB Daniel Jones will spend this week working out in Arizona with some of the team's offensive weapons and linemen.

Footballguys view: Ah yes, it's that time of year when we get the private off-campus (so to speak) workouts. It's a list of which quarterbacks get teammates together and which don't and how often. Listen, most players are doing this now and it is good to see Jones take the lead with his teammates. It's a make-or-break season for the third-year quarterback.

  Giants | Daniel Jones off target    Wed Mar 24, 10:14 PM

New York Giants QB Daniel Jones was off target on 16.8 percent of his throws in 2021, the ninth-worst mark among qualified players.

Footballguys view: The Giants are setting up Jones for one more year as their starter. It's time for him to prove that he can be the 'main man' going forward or if the team needs to move on. He's an athletic quarterback who isn't afraid to take chances with the ball as a passer, but Jones has to improve his accuracy and pass placement. Adding WR Kenny Golladay gives him a true no.1 target and should help Jones in a make-or-break season.

  Giants | Daniel Jones allergic to end zone    Sun Jan 31, 10:09 PM

New York Giants QB Daniel Jones' touchdown percentage of 2.5 was the lowest among quarterbacks with at least 400 attempts in 2020, and he became just the 11th quarterback in NFL history to have 11 or fewer touchdown passes with at least 400 pass attempts.

Footballguys view: Jones will have to pick up the pace when the team is near paydirt in 2021. We'll see what the Giants do this offseason to put better weapons around him, plus the team needs to continue crafting a Jones-friendly offense if they want to get the most out of his game.

  Giants | NYG caps regular season with a victory    Sun Jan 3, 05:54 PM

New York Giants QB Daniel Jones completed 17-of-25 passes for 229 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in Week 17 against the Dallas Cowboys. RB Wayne Gallman rushed 11 times for 65 yards, while WR Sterling Shepard had eight receptions for a game-high 112 yards with a touchdown, and he ran twice for 24 yards and a score. WR Dante Pettis added two receptions for 43 yards and a touchdown, while WR Darius Slayton closed the regular season with two catches and 22 yards on four targets. TE Evan Engram was also targeted four times, ending up with two catches and 17 yards. LB Blake Martinez ended up with 11 total stops, a sack, a tackle for loss and a quarterback hit, and DE Leonard Williams had three sacks.

Footballguys view: Jones looked sharp and healthy in this one and the Giants offense did enough combined with a heroic performance by the defense. Now the Giants wait to see if Philadelphia can beat Washington and punch their ticket into the playoffs. The Giants would host the Buccaneers.
