Daniel Jones & fumbles..

Sean : 9/8/2019 7:38 pm
Iím encouraged from what Iíve seen of Jones, but he absolutely needs to clean this up going forward. Right now, Iíd consider it a trend.

Also, Dallas is loaded. Beat Buffalo next week.
Fumbling CAN be corrected

so get to work
Easy game review for him  
justafan : 9/8/2019 7:44 pm : link
nothing to really go over in the film room for him regarding the dump-offs. Grill the kid on his fumbling. It's a confirmed problem now.
At least he has Tanney in the room to help him

That's easy to fix  
Coach Red Beaulieu : 9/8/2019 7:52 pm : link
Slide ffs, don't try to dive between 2 defenders. You're our franchise qb.
He should never run to gain yardage  
BillT : 9/8/2019 7:53 pm : link
Only to extend a play. Heís going to get injured if he runs like he did on that fumble. See, Wentz, Carson.
Eli has the same problem.  
Dutch77 : 9/8/2019 7:53 pm : link
At least the Rookie seems to have other abilities that could help this offense.
He should be running that out of bounds  
Matt M. : 9/8/2019 7:53 pm : link
not diving forward for an extra yard, especially in garbage time.
Relax....

he'll learn.
His fumbles in college

8 in 2017 lost 4
5 in 2018 lost 4
He needs to work on cleaning this up going forward.

Darnold had 9 fumbles and lost 5 in 2017, and in 2018 12 fumbles and lost 9.

Eli averages 8 fumbles a year.

He will be fine

Exactly why itís valuable for him to get some burn this season, even in garbage time of a game like this. Experience in those situations...hopefully helps him learn not to do it again
it was just a stupid decision.

kid needs to learn to fucking slide.

Ya he had some TOs (picks were worse actually). But this singular comp to Darnold people make, as if a) he's the comp to make, and b) it matter what ONE other player does...

Duke tape showed this, he also needed to improve his decision-making as related. But not something to freak out about in game 1 / rookie year etc. Even Darnold could be a TO machine now yr 2 and you'd still have to give him time...
make him carry a ball around

and encourage team mates to try and slap it out of his hand.
This is completely overblown

He's had 1 game's worth of snaps and fumbled the ball 4 times. I don't think it's overblowned at all. It's easily correctable though.

Somebody has watched the movie "The Program" one too many times.
What was worrisome about this fumble....  
Tesla : 9/9/2019 12:59 am : link
was that Dallas didn't even try to stip the ball. He simply ran into a defender backside and coughed the ball up. That's really bad.

Still, it's one play and he should be able to correct this.
Fun fact...  
only1eli : 9/9/2019 10:55 am : link
The Program was filmed at Duke.
talk about a fixable problem  
Torrag : 9/9/2019 10:57 am : link
This is the least of our worries.
