Good morning, New York Giants fans!
Daniel Jones says he is “always learning”
Daniel Jones has now started 16 NFL games. Is he the long-term quarterback of the future for the Giants? All of the evidence isn’t in yet. Jones, at the helm of the league’s worst offense through four games, has struggled so far in 2020.
How does the second-year quarterback assess where he is and how he is playing?
“I’ve learned a lot of football and feel like I’ve improved as a player as far as my understanding of the game, my understanding of situational football and when you want to take advantage of certain opportunities, when to get the ball out of my hand. It’s something I’m continuing to work on and improve. But I certainly feel like I’ve improved and made a lot of progress up to this point,” Jones said on Wednesday.
“I realize this is my second year and I do have a lot to learn. I’m always learning and improving. But I don’t think you use that ever as an excuse. I’m expected to play well, understand what we’re trying to do and execute it. I’m certainly learning, always learning, and trying to improve. But you can’t see it as an excuse, and I certainly don’t.”
The video below addresses the “what if the Giants have the No. 1 pick?” question. I stand by the take I expressed here, but I don’t believe it is going to come to that for the Giants. I have concerns, but I’m still “in” on Jones. I also still believe the best thing for the franchise would be coming out of this season feeling they have a quarterback they can build around rather than one they need to replace.
