Podcast: Navigating the Daniel Jones decision...
The New York Giants did the right thing. There's general competence at the top of the organization. Here on the pod, co-host Jim Monos explains what's likely going through GM Joe Schoen's mind.
There are indisputable elements to Daniel Jones’ game that everyone can love.
He’s tough, mentally and physically. Head coach Brian Daboll checked this box himself in training camp with his own test.
He’s limiting turnovers. He’s a leader. He can run.
But is Jones the answer in New York? Long term? That’s the question I explored in our latest Friday Feature at Go Long.
Here on the podcast, co-host Jim Monos explains what may be going on in GM Joe Schoen’s head this offseason. Monos has lived decisions exactly like this one as the Buffalo Bills’ director of personnel.
Either Jones has been maxed out by Daboll (this is as good as it gets) or Jones has been damn good despite one of the least-talented supporting casts in the NFL. It’s a fascinating debate. There’s no easy answer. Rich Gannon, Chris Simms and Kurt Warner all supplied some excellent insight in the story. And as we found out, Daboll loves Jones. All signs point toward Jones being the guy in 2023. Still, to win Super Bowls, teams typically need to take big swings at quarterback. Daboll knows this, too.

Great content and very in depth! Well worth the money!
I am not a Daniel Jones fanboy. But, I have watched football for more than 50 years and in my opinion: 1) Jim’s commentary is stunningly ignorant; and 2) Jones has proven himself worthy of a second contract (and it’s not merely because the options are limited).
Jim: Have you watched ANY Giant football this year? Citing that Jones is 23rd in yards per attempt is absurd when devoid of the short passing game that Kafka is deploying. What reviver do they have that scares defenses? No one. They are relying on spacing and horizontally stretching the field, not the kind of offense that generates chunk gains. This offense is necessitated by their lousy iOL play, so Jones can’t wait for downfield routes to develop, even if we had people who could win downfield, which we don’t.
Jones has improved this year in every important aspect of QB play: pocket awareness, progression reads and ball placemant.
Jones and Garropolo are “the same guy”? That is moronic. Jones adds so much more in the run game compared to Mr. Glass.
I had to turn it off. I risked getting dumber just by listening
