NFL world blasts Daniel Jones for disastrous first-half performance

Vincent Frank

New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones was questionable all week heading into Sunday’s game against the Los Angeles Rams due to a concussion he suffered a week ago.

Well, Giants fans might prefer Mike Glennon getting a shot after what we saw from Jones in the first half against Los Angeles.

That included losing a fumble on a strip sack in the second quarter, which led directly to a Rams touchdown and a 14-3 Giants deficit.

After the Giants went three-and-out on their next possession, Daniel Jones once again turned the ball over. This time, it came via an interception from Rams defensive back Taylor Rapp. It was bad. Really, really bad.

That’s just some terrible stuff from Jones. How does a quarterback in the midst of his third season miss underneath coverage like that? It’s a rookie mistake, one that has defined Jones’ career thus far.

As with the previous turnover, Los Angeles turned this into a touchdown just a few plays later.

Playing without stud running back Saquon Barkley has proven to be difficult for Jones. That included the former first-round pick throwing just nine touchdowns with 12 turnovers in 12 starts without Barkley in the mix last season. Now that the back is again sidelined with an ankle injury, it’s clear Jones is struggling.

Is Tom Brady the greatest of all time or a cheater?
