New York Giants Coach Joe Judge did not make a full commitment to Daniel Jones as the team started the quarterback on Wednesday in 2021. But he got pretty close.
“I don’t know if there’s a” ahaha “moment … for me it’s a series of moments,” the judge said at the hsi video conference Wednesday. “Look at Daniel’s work, see him respect in the locker room, and see him get better throughout the season. He kicks him out there and builds with Daniel. I think it showed us the level of toughness, leadership and knowledge in this area that gives us confidence. “
Jones has made nine intercepts this season and has only thrown eight touchdown passes. As a rookie, he threw 24 touchdown passes on 12 intercepts. The Giants are 31st in the league with 17.4 points per game.
These things, and the fact that Jones was unable to play in the match due to injury in each of the first two NFL seasons, wonders if the Giants will return to the quarterback market in the next draft. The Giants currently have the 10th pick overall.
By saying “build with Daniel,” the judge certainly seemed to expect Jones to be a future quarterback.
“These people are definitely in my respect. I made him so hard in many ways from the beginning. He isn’t blinking,” the judge said. “Daniel Jones is our quarterback.”
The judge clearly thanked the support.
“I learned a lot from the coach judge and enjoyed working with him. My job is to earn it every day, and that’s the approach you have to take in this league.” Jones said. Come every day, earn a job, work hard, do what you want, and improve as a player every day. That’s what I’m focusing on. “
The second year quarterback admitted that he had to learn not to force play that wasn’t there.
“I think I’ve learned a lot. Throughout the year we’ve played a lot of tight games. We haven’t finished some and have found a way to win some of them. You saw those games and in the game we won, we protected the ball better, “Jones said. “Sometimes, especially at the beginning of the year, I think I felt I had to play when I wasn’t there. When I wasn’t there, it was best to protect the ball and make sure I was in control of it. Learn when it’s a decision. I learned a lot through specific situations and situations where I played in different games. “
Does he play on Sunday?
Will Jones play on Sunday? He missed two of the last three games. The first was a hamstring injury and then the ankle injury.
“We will throw him into practice today and tomorrow to see where he is,” the judge said. “In a perfect world, I want an answer as soon as possible. I’m not going to go ahead and set a timemark for this, but after some answer and practice, it will come out on Friday.”
