New York Giants: QB Daniel Jones

No more excuses exist for Daniel Jones. The quarterback enters a make-or-break season in year three as the New York Giants’ starting quarterback.

Last season, missteps were understandable. Standout running back Saquon Barkley missed most of the campaign with a torn ACL. The offensive line was in flux. And the team’s wide receivers were suspect, at best.

Now, Barkley is expected back, the offensive line has had a year together, and the Giants added wide receiver Kenny Golladay in free agency and drafted Kadarius Toney in this year’s first round.

Everything is in place for Jones to excel. The 24-year-old signal-caller must take care of the ball, of course. Turnovers have been a problem in the past. A little ball security will go a long way with all the talent found around the 2019 sixth overall draft pick.

Given how much flak Jones has caught before the season has even begun, articles like this demonstrate that some do have faith in the third year QB in 2021.
