This came at 1st and 10 after the Giants regained possession after the Jones turnover, at about 12.44 left in 2Q. I've seen a number of posters, including Eric@BBI, assert that he left the pass short, others said similar things in different threads, and some posited this as a weak-armed throw to the sideline sticks.
When I watched real time Friday night--and multiple replays re-watched just now confirms my original view--Jones threw that ball away, essentially into the dirt at Tate's feet, so it would be uncatchable. Joseph had tight coverage and leverage, sideline just off Tate's shoulder, and imo if Jones had thrown a catchable ball it was a possible pic if not a pic 6. I think he threw it away.
That said, Jones did not appear to look right at all, seemed to stare down Tate at the left sideline and as he did so tapped the ball two or three times, so he was a big factor in the coverage Joseph had on Tate.
So, to me, a mixed bad and bag, but not in the way some posters have characterized it.
Too, I'll reiterate a point I made on Saturday: after the strip sack, I think Shurmur made it a point of emphasis to give Jones some very high percentage completion passes, short and dump off type, to get his head straight, and Jones did. But I give kudos for Shurmur for addressing Jones' head in coaching moments.
