Ever since Daniel Jones had an electric rookie year, many fans were expecting him to make strides into his second year as a full-time starter. But in 2020 he threw just 11 touchdowns and 10 interceptions after missing some games due to an injured hamstring. New York Giants head coach Joe Judge immediately vowed to surround the quarterback with weapons this coming season and many are expecting him to make a ‘Josh Allen’ type of third season coming up in the NFL. The Giants drafted speedy wideout Kadarius Toney with the 20th overall pick in the first round and signed former Detroit Lions wide receiver Kelly Golladay to a four year deal, adding to the surplus of weapons for Jones. If he doesn’t have a statistical friendly year, the Giants might be in need of a new quarterback. Gettleman talked to the New York Post about Daniel Jones and the upcoming season.
“Obviously, this will be a big jump,” Gettleman said, via the New York Post. “This is the year, Year 2 to Year 3, that Daniel should really make a major stride.”
Last season after all the injuries to Saquon Barkley and Daniel Jones the New York Giants managed to still go 6-10 and barely miss the playoffs. This year is very important for people to prove themselves in this organization, with Barkley on a contract year, and Daniel being evaluated as the long term quarterback and even Joe Judge and Dave Gettleman to see if they can build this organization back into a contender.
