Hard working and smart only gets you so far in the NFL.  At some point the athletic talents need to take over.

 

Dude has serious wheels...he almost went 80 yards for a TD until that turf reached up and made the tackle a few yards short...

I don't know what to make of Jones. The Giants OL is trash so that doesn't help but he neither looks like he can be "the guy" or a scrub either. He seems average. He isn't a Schoen or Daboll pick and I believe the Giants didn't pick up his option. This is a big year for him otherwise I see the Giants moving on from him next year.

 

Was there ever OL that was worse than what Allen had as a rookie?

 

Yet, with that putrid OL, Allen didn't have a losing record as a rookie in games he started and finished.

You'll notice that he didn't say best...

 

On the bright side, he didn’t mention that he sews his own clothes. 

 

As they say down here…..”bless his heart!”

“In conclusion, if he continues to look like he has the first 3 years it will be due to a complete absence of talent. And possibly ***** terrible coaching” …*holds finger to ear* “What’s that? Joe Judge is working with Mac Jones now?”

I don’t care if 1980’s Bill Walsh was working with Mac Jones, he’d still stink.

I'm not a fan, but I'll be fair. He's not a "bad" QB. Overdrafted and thrown into a QB1 position on a team with limited talent. If he had played in the 90's he'd be borderline Pro Bowl caliber.  I.E.

 

2019 Daniel Jones

13 games/ 3027 yds, 24 TD's 12 INTs, 61.9 comp rate

 

1990 QBX

14 games/ 2829 yds, 24 TD's 9 INTs, 63.1 comp rate/ Pro Bowl selection and AFC SB representative. And he had a very talent laden roster to work with.

 

Can you guess who QBX is?😂 He's a HOF'er.

 

In no way am I saying Jones was anywhere as good as QBX but it really goes to show how the position is viewed and played today.

I'm sure he's smart, he went to Duke didn't he?

 

Jeez! What do you want him to say? 

 

He's a scrub, it's no surprise his option wasn't picked up.

 

He never said most talented did he?

 

I think Josh Allen, Patrick Mahomes and Eli Manning will have objections on the "Hardest Working" part.    

 

He is trying to cheer his new teammate...and that is OK

Zach Wilson went like 70 yards for a TD too 

 

You honestly don't need "serious" wheels... You need a bit of a break and to hit the corner with clean long strides

 

Josh has the speed to do it , but the circumstances for it to happen are very very rare in the NFL

But those numbers don’t make for a franchise QB in 2022, so unless Daniel Jones has a hot tub time machine, he’s going to need to be much better or they’re drafting his replacement.

Comparing apples and oranges with stats. Two different eras, one of which the rules were tilted very heavily to favor the offense and one of which was not.

Code for…dude doesn’t have talent, but he’s damn smart and hard working.

 

Sounds like he couldn’t think of anything good to say about his talent…😂😂

No kidding guys.

Perhaps you missed the part of the post that read:

All I'm saying is he's not awful. I'd probably take him over Tua, Wilson, Hineike and Mills.
