Danny Dimes grip strength

It seams like every game DJ just drops the ball and gives it to the other team. I think he needs to reach out to Eli to learn how to improve his grip strength....
Grip strength

When I played football the coach would have me take a wet football and drop it and snatch before it fell to the ground
I had to do it all the time even when I was going to classes
My hands became like a vice and my muscle memory caused me to subconsciously grip whenever I was getting hit

When I wasnít using the wet football I was squeezing a hard rubber ball

I brought this up earlier in another thread.

Wonder if wearing a glove would help

on his non throwing hand. At this point, can't hurt to try it.
I don't think its only a grip strength issue...

as he seems to not be fully aware of pressure when it's upon him and he's often oblivious to the fact that he's about to get hit. '
In his first few games, I assumed it was an easily fixable problem.

Now, I'm assuming that it's a chronic problem that won't be fixed until it is. Granted, that some of it has to do with the ol and with Barkley's inability to pick up blitzers. But, even given those things, Jones has a serious problem that he needs to continually work on. I am very pleased with the rest of his game and glad he's a Giant. But this problem has reached the level of being very serious.
glove on non throwing hand

couldn't hurt, no. Those gloves are boarder line illegal, in that the technology literally feels like you have glue on those gloves. Where one on the opposite hand.

He should get married, or not get married. I forget which one caused Eliís issues
