Daniel Jones has not only replaced future Hall of Famer Quarterback Eli Manning as the Giants franchise quarterback, but he has also replaced Manning as a target by many angry Giant fans. From the moment Daniel Jones was drafted 6th overall in the 2019 NFL draft, the media and many fans have been looking for any opportunity to discredit the selection. In his rookie season, Jones had his moments (some good and some bad) like any rookie quarterback would have. His 3200+ yards through the air and 24 touchdown passes were encouraging, however; his inability to secure the ball was an issue.

In Jones second and third season, he was unfortunately setup to fail under the guidance of Head Coach Joe Judge and Offensive Coordinator Jason Garrett with a new offensive system that was not at all affective. All this time, many fans and media so-called experts labeled Jones as a bust and wanted the Giants ownership to find a replacement. Fully ignorant to the fact that the roster around him lacked talent (especially the offensive line) and the poor game plan by Jason Garrett set Jones up to fail rather than succeed.

However, year four saw the Giants ownership think outside the box and hire Joe Schoen as the new GM and Brian Daboll as the new Head Coach.  Under Schoen and Daboll and a new offensive system led by Mike Kafka, Jones excelled with five 4th quarter comeback wins, while limiting his turnovers. The Giants finished with a 9-7-1 regular season win, which was good enough to earn a playoff spot for the first time since 2016. The Giants under Jones went 1-1 in the playoffs with a win in Minnesota and a loss to the Eagles to end their season. Despite Jones success and improvements under Daboll, a portion of the media and fans still look for reasons to discredit Jones and wanted the Giants to go in a new direction.

GM Joe Schoen rewards Daniel Jones with a 4-year deal worth $160M to be the team’s next franchise quarterback and of course all the trolls come out of the woodwork to criticize Schoen, stating “Jones is a bottom level quarterback”. Eli Manning won two Super Bowls and two Super Bowl MVP and still there are so-called Giant fans who still think he was a below average quarterback and not worthy for the Hall of Fame.

Unfortunately, the same fate awaits Daniel Jones as he will never be appreciated by these fans and by some of the New York Media despite any success he will have.
