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.
