Danny Dimes

Canton : 8/16/2019 10:12 pm

11/14 for 161yds & 1TD

He's looking more and more like our future QB. He'll learn from the 2 fumbles but his accuracy, ball placement, and touch has been nothing short of spectacular.

What says you?

lax counsel : 8/16/2019 11:16 pm : link
Why NFL scouts were a lot higher on him than the media. He certainly has to continue to develop and learn the NFL game, but he appears to have all the physical and mental tools to do so.

You couldnít have asked for a better start than heís shown and heís certainly supporting whatís been said about him in practice. Hereís hoping he develops into a legit franchise qb.

I wonder if the media saw him struggle against much better teams at times and take something off the ball for his bad receivers and made assumptions.
Danny Dimes?  
bradshaw44 : 8/16/2019 11:24 pm : link
Maybe if he were number 10. Yeaaaa, donít think that would go over well.

What I really liked  
TrueBlue56 : 8/16/2019 11:33 pm : link
Was seeing him bounce back from the turnovers. You see some quarterbacks go on a downward spiral after a turnover or a few bad plays.

Same. He loses the ball. Then, our defense gets a stop. And then we score on our next drive.

Also, when it was 2nd & 19 and Jones and the offense managed to get us back into FG position and kick the FG, which is much better than coming away with no points in that situation. So far, so good.
Iíve been a fan  
5BowlsSoon : 8/16/2019 11:54 pm : link
From the moment his name was called and he became a Giant. I donít listen to ESPN talking heads because they just like to sound impressive with all their shouting and antics. Of course they think my mocking people, like Gettleman and Jones, that that makes them more impressive. Hardly.....just a lot of hot air. Iím glad when Iím at the gym running and espn is on the tube there is no sound.

Jonesí touch and accuracy are awesome.
Pleasantly surprised  
Marty866b : 8/17/2019 12:03 am : link
A couple of Jones throws were Bradylike.

He has some serious touch on his passes that I haven't seen a Giants QB have in awhile. Last week's TD vs. the Jets and this weeks TD were pretty much perfectly placed and close to the sideline, which makes it even alittle more difficult. It's cool to see a 22 year old compete these passes with pinpoint accuracy. Love that he completes the short passes as well, which isn't always a given for a QB no matter how talented that QB may be.

Alot of people have touted Jones' ability to run when necessary and throw on the run with accuracy. We haven't had to see him run from the pocket for a short (or long) run yet, nor we have we seen him throw on the run yet, but I'm excited to see both since both aspects are things that even some of his past critics have said he is very good at. Him not having to run yet is a good thing, though. Means the OL is doing it's job. Still excited to see both of those aspects at some point in the future, though.
Itís early  
Payasdaddy : 8/17/2019 12:10 am : link
And have no idea what his upside is. But he has made a few very nice throws and most of the easy ones. He definitely looks like he at least belongs.
Some rookies are like deer in headlights
Donít see it with him so far
And he is also playing without his top skills position guys( Saquon, Engram, shep.)
Kinda have a feeling within the next yr or two will draft him a number #1 wr too
And hopefully continuously solidly oline so he doesnít have same issue Eli has last 5 yrs re. Oline

be the most repetitive and meaningless. dimes = double nickels? come on, why not just sing ď Danny BoyĒ? He had a relatively good game, made some excellent throws, some wobblers too i think. read the field ok, but we donít have coaches view or know what else was going on. Most are calming down from media craziness on draft day. ok, letís just move on calmly.

letís enjoy the process and hope for the best. Especially hope the owner leaves things for the gm, coach and w/l record to determine outcome. be calm and obsess on ideation beyond childish nicknames.

Great insight brother. And I agree....short passs are not to be taken for granted. There usually are a lot of bodies around the ball and you still have to lead the receiver or at least place it in so he wonít get killed. DJ looks to be a natural at that.

And yes, when watching Duke highlights, what really got me excited was his rolling out ability and his ability to take off when the opening was there. These qualities make him special In my opinion and I feel so relieved picking him up this year vindicates our taking Saquon last year. Now we have both!

christian : 8/17/2019 12:19 am : link
I was sitting just a few rows up field level on the opposite side of the TD throw and could see the entire play and throw develop.

Literally first thing I thought when the ball left his hands "that looks like Brady." His touch is really that impressive. Really great thrower.

I just wonder who actually listens to these crews. Ex athletes and talking heads spouting nonsense half the time. Really, really shallow shows from an analytical standpoint.

I get it. They can't be experts on every team but they act like it so they deserve the criticism. Oh that's right. Its about building their individual brand. Not giving the audience insight.

That's why the BBI armchair analysts are to be taken with a grain of salt.

I almost couldn't believe Dak, but came across his highlight tape from preseason. He had guys WIDE open and was bailed out by Dez and a few others on some TD throws that weren't well thrown.
