Very harsh Jones criticism from around the league:

Sean : 11/12/2020 9:50 am
The Athletic published their QB tier rankings today based on feedback from around the league. Jones got harsh criticism and is at the bottom with Darnold. Link is behind a paywall, but the analysis is below:

Quote:
“Jason called a helluva game against Tampa (during a 25-23 defeat in Week 8),” an offensive coach said. “They had guys running deep three times and the quarterback doesn’t even look at them. That is the first read in the play. He ends up scrambling on two of them and throwing interceptions. Someone needs to tell the quarterback, ‘You’re either going to do what we are telling you to do or we are fucking playing someone else.’ ”

An evaluator said he thought Jones was actually playing more like Darnold was expected to play.

“One is more talented in the body (Darnold) and one is more talented in the mind (Jones), but that being said, the reason Daniel Jones has been bad is because he has made really poor decisions,” this evaluator said. “The reason you took Daniel Jones is because he is smart and was coached well and all these things, but he is doing the exact opposite of the reason you took him.”

With all due respect, Dave Brown was one of the worst QBs I have seen. The guy had the yips in the pocket and at times couldn't throw the ball into the ocean if he was standing on the beach. Granted, it was a different era, but Jones is more talented by a factor of 2X.

That period for the Giants post Simms was QB hell - Brown, Graham, Kanell, Maddox,


Completely agree but he did more in that 94 first season than Jones did in 2019. Or at least Brown did more winning than Jones ever did.

And again, think back to that game at Cleveland back in 94. Matt SGS did a review on it I believe. I was excited about Brown after that game and even that season, despite the ups and downs. Brown showed some glimpses that year. My point is, they all show glimpses. Doesn't mean shit if they don't play well all the time.

Looks good on quick hitting short . . . .  
TC : 11/12/2020 3:11 pm : link
and intermediate routes where he can get the ball out of his hands fast. Otherwise, takes too long on his reads, gets in trouble and tries to do too much. The comparison to Eli is valid. Early in his career, Eli often had the same problem, plus accuracy problems when it looked like he couldn't hit the broad side of a barn.

Jones may still develop, if he can get through his progressions faster, otherwise, I think he'll be limited to a QB that can only play in certain systems.
not to pick a battle or nitpick  
djm : 11/12/2020 3:21 pm : link
but comparing Jones to Eli (2005-2007) is unfair to ELi. Yea they both made mistakes, but one of them won a shit load of games and beat good teams while doing it. Drew Brees and Brett Favre threw a bunch of INTS too. Compare Jones to those guys?

Not to mention the grasp Eli had on the playbook and offense in general. Eli was underrated early on.
Criticism from AROUND THE LEAGUE??

Noting that Aaron Nagler, a Packers blogger, after the Washington game Tweeted a clip of another QB making an awful interception with the comment "This is Daniel Jones bad."

The word is out that Jones stinks. He's sure stunk so far. But I still have hope.

One anonymous Scott says he s bad, must be true. Of course guys like Simms and Bradshaw think the kid has the goods, but they don’t count, I get it.

I don’t mind the skepticism, but the absolute takes, spoken with authority, that the Giants must move on, is for lack of a better phrase, typical fan speak.

I ll leave it to Judge to make the fall on Jones, in the meantime rooting like hell for him to shut his critics up.
If Judge is allowed to make the call,  
Go Terps : 11/12/2020 3:53 pm : link
I'd bet he'd be open to looking elsewhere. Judge's name is on a 2-7 record in large part because he has had to coach around his quarterback.

If Gettleman is still around there is no reason to think it's Judge's call.
I tend to be a little more patient in evaluating first rounders  
3putt : 11/12/2020 3:54 pm : link
but one thing is clear. If the Giants are in a position to draft Lawrence or Fields, it means Jones has only won four or five games over two years. If that happens, they would certainly be justified in drafting the QB.

it's not just one scout. That we have Jones when we could have had Herbert or Tua is just a disaster for our team. You should be extremely disappointed in our Front Office. WE have been mismanaged in the most important decision that faces an NFL GM.

Jones has 7 games ...  
FStubbs : 11/12/2020 4:38 pm : link
... to play the Giants out of range to draft a QB. That's basically it.

Lawrence is a Jet already btw.

To do that, he has to beat someone other than Washington.

On that note, I do think something to consider is Jones playing in Shurmur's system. Shurmur is a terrible head coach but there's a long list of bad QBs that he made look good.
Jones  
Dragon : 11/12/2020 5:29 pm : link
Has numerous problems he’s playing throw and catch with Slayton most of the time his primary and only hope, just not enough in game targets. The offensive game plans are not really specialized to get Slayton the ball enough at all. They keep trying to include Engram & whichever other WR’s we throw out there on a weekly basis. His offensive line shows no consistency they can’t be relied upon to give him time to scan the field, can he really make the second or third read before it’s sack time or run for your life. Jones still can’t hold onto the damn football no idea what the plan was to solve that problem but it’s a complete failure. Last week the line showed some surprisingly ability to block for the run shocked the Football Team and most Giants fans. The RB’s he’s handing off the ball to present no game breaking ability at all nothing for a defense to really fear. As I’ve said since SB went down where’s our development RB’s for next year sure not on this team.

So bad mouth Jones all you want but in reality he has a very suspect offensive line, nothing special at RB, not a damn thing at TE’s, only one WR he can depend on and a major issue holding onto the football. Your asking him to show improvement however have the players around him improved we all know the answer to that question hell no.

no 2 ways about it.

22 games into his career. 7 more to go. Will be interesting to watch.

Right now, through 22 games, his numbers compare somewhat favorably to Eli's first 22 games. What does that mean? Absolutely nothing. Just a reference/perspective point.

I think this team is well coached enough that they are going to win 2-3 more games.

If you're in the 6-10 pick range, you don't have a shot at Fields and it's a no-brainer that Jones gets year 3, IMO.

The tough situation would be if Jones looks absolutely terrible for the remaining 7 games. If he does, good chance they are picking in the top 3-4. And if he looks that bad, maybe you consider Fields.

I'd say there's probably a 90%+ chance that Jones is the QB in 2021. Can't use a top 10 pick on another QB who's as or greater of a risk as Jones was (Wilson, Lance, Trask).

For what it's worth, I think they still aren't using enough designed runs for him.


While I agree with practically everything in your post, I have noticed that DJ has been quite bad....maybe horrendous at reading the edge. The big runs he's ripped off, he could have had several more just based on how many times he doesnt yank the balll from the RB and take it to the sideline. He is either very bad at the read, or is afraid to carry it.
I hope Jones is the QB long term.

chopperhatch : 11/12/2020 7:27 pm : link
That has been literally the second most infuriating aspect about Jones' play.

Turnovers is 1 with a bullet.

Number 2 is not him zeroing in on receivers. Or missing guys that are open deep. It's that he has the ability to completely alter a team's edge rush threat and deliver "kidney shot" runs for big yardage that could make EVERYTHING easier for him.

Im starting to get on board with this too. Its disappointing because I think he has all the tools physically to be pretty fucking awesome, and then the mental toughness would put him in that rarified air. But if he cant process it....

Jones needs to start getting it. It is bad when your great plays kinda look like mistakes.
It’s almost like fans are blind to the fact that he’s a second year  
Zeke's Alibi : 11/12/2020 8:30 pm : link
QB in his second offense with a clear prerogative to clean up his decision making. He’s looked much better in that respect the past couple weeks. It takes time and game reps to put this together. Progress isn’t linear. You work on something like this and all of a sudden the bigger plays are gone. Eventually, hopefully he puts it all together and becomes the franchise QB. From what I’ve see he has all the parts, just needs to put it together. More reps and more he’ll play more fluid. We saw it from him last year, but this year the clear learning point of this season is cut out the poor decision making. This is going to cause hesitancy, but I’m encourage what he’s looked like and done recently. I think he really puts it together after the bye.
The Tampa game is largely regarded as possibly the worst game of his  
NoGainDayne : 11/12/2020 8:39 pm : link
career, I don't understand this assertion that he's improving the last few games.

People understand he's a 2nd year player. Most QBs don't need that long to progress anymore, you are the one that doesn't seem to grasp that.
I drove 500 miles to see his debut  
Ned In Atlanta : 11/12/2020 8:41 pm : link
which was an awesome, awesome game. i'm very biased. But he's only beating WFT since then. The mistakes are inexcusable and are drive killer/game killers. But these last few games should be him auditioning for his job. Gettleman should get canned, but like someone else said, if he doesn't Jones probably has another scholarship year waiting him
at the end of the day  
Osi Osi Osi OyOyOy : 11/12/2020 8:46 pm : link
there are two basic aspects to analyze not just QB play but pro athletes in general, the physical game and the mental game.

His physical tools are ok. His arm has been what we expected, average but not comparable to the really good passers in the league. Above average touch but below average velocity/strength and inconsistent at best accuracy. His running ability has been a pleasant surprise as his 80 yard run and "fastest MPH a QB has reached in 2 years" factoid can't be ignored.

But the mental side has been a major disappointment. He was a smart kid from a smart school like Duke, who had great coaching in Cutcliffe. It was supposed to be a strength of his. Yet it's been the opposite. His pocket presence has been terrible since day 1. He has worked on it a little but is still way worse than average in that regard. His decision making has been highly questionable, he has made a ton of risky throws that leads you to believe he overestimates his arm talent. His ability to read defenses and progression of his reads have both been very poor.

He has journeymen RBs, a developing but still below average OL, a really weak receiving corps with an overrated bust like Engram as his supposed biggest weapon. I'm not ready to give up on Jones and I still think you need to let him finish the year. But it's hard to get excited about his potential when there are so many question marks about both his physical tools and mental ability.

It was in the second half of that game where you started to see stuff that you haven’t from him that continued into last week. Like throwing the ball away and the 4th quarter drive. His big blemish was not firing the ball right away on the two pt conversion. Not sure if he thought he saw someone get their arm in their passing lane or what. Not worried about the missed throws in that game because it was an aberration and Brady was missing throws last week all over place as well. Something was up with the crosswinds that night.

he looked better last year than this year.

Also he's missed throws when he's had time all year. To single it into one game and act like it's the same that him and Brady missed throws isn't even a remotely complete analysis.

Your seeing what you want to see. He’s missed a handful of throws all year, nothing like the Tampa game. QBs miss throws and in that aspect he’s certainly more accurate than most.

They asked around the league. Problem with that is lots of other guys around league only see those guys in prime time unless actively game planning against him. Hence the comment about the TB game. He was awful until about halfway through the third. He also was uncharacteristically missing a ton of reads. But when you make judgements when n = 1, well your the guy with resume apparently so you know what that means

Jones, like many current players, falls into the category of mitigating circumstances.

There are lots of plausible explanations for why he's underperformed. But there's very little concrete evidence he has all the tools and qualities to play consistent high quality football.

The Giants roster is lousy with players who, if many things would just line up, would be better.

I wish the Giants roster was lousy with players who were just good as it is right now.

I admire your perseverance in trying to defend DG from his Barkley pick to his DJones pick - in terms of Barkley didn't you defend the pick stating how elite RB's were going to start taking over the NFL? Weren't you saying a while back there was going to be renaissance with RB's? That's why the Barkley pick was good?

Anyhow - after the TB game you said we were going to be favored to win in the next 3 while at the same time you said and a lien came out favoring Wash.

And now you make a comment that DJ showed improvement in his last 2 games. Now all of it sudden it's changed by you to a half- then you focus on his last drive.

Man- just stop it. You don't have to keep making things up. You got 7 games to see DJ. After the 7 games you can evaluate. Just stop making things up and stop making excuses. There's 7 more games. You don't need a proclamation yet. Just stop making things up.

The irony is that I'm not sure his not looking for Slayton during the TB game was his fault. Slayton said he missed one throw in the lights IIRC, and Jones threw to the wrong side on another attempt. But I wonder if that was the wind. Both he and Brady missed quite a few open receivers. Jones may have decided that there was too much of a chance that he'd miss on any deep throw because of the wind to even try.


Two weeks in a row without a turnover is a step in the right direction. He needs to continue that trend.
He had something like 35 turnovers in his first
20 starts, so he needs to continue the recent trend.

QB in his second offense with a clear prerogative to clean up his decision making. He’s looked much better in that respect the past couple weeks. It takes time and game reps to put this together. Progress isn’t linear. You work on something like this and all of a sudden the bigger plays are gone. Eventually, hopefully he puts it all together and becomes the franchise QB. From what I’ve see he has all the parts, just needs to put it together. More reps and more he’ll play more fluid. We saw it from him last year, but this year the clear learning point of this season is cut out the poor decision making. This is going to cause hesitancy, but I’m encourage what he’s looked like and done recently. I think he really puts it together after the bye.


Thought I bump this. Looks to be one week ahead of schedule. Not sure what people are watching that they didn't see this.

he looked better last year than this year.

Also he's missed throws when he's had time all year. To single it into one game and act like it's the same that him and Brady missed throws isn't even a remotely complete analysis.


And this is why you can keep clinging to your analytics or whatever you do to assess football and I'll keep trusting what my eyes tell me. Missed throws? Go look at what the advanced analytics are when DJ is throwing from a clean pocket. Awfully quiet here today for someone that often spouts repeating diatribes on this site day in and day out.

Pretty much everything I said about DJ was spot on and personally wasn't expecting to see performances like that after the bye which is extremely encouraging. We'll see this more often than not from here on out. What he's done since the second half of the Tampa game shows me he gets it now.
