Daniel Jones: I felt I could do everything I had to do

Giants quarterback Daniel Jones‘ postgame session with the media was pushed back so he could meet with members of the team’s medical staff, but Jones doesn’t think he did anything to his hamstring that will cause him to miss another game.

Jones said the meeting was about “general bumps and bruises and staying on top of the hammy” he hurt in Week 12 against the Bengals. Jones sat out last Sunday, but returned against the Cardinals this weekend.

He did not look 100 percent and said he “wasn’t able to run like I normally am.” That led to six sacks and a dismal overall performance by the offense, but none of that had Jones feeling like it was a mistake to play this week.

“I don’t regret it. I felt good enough to play. I felt like I could do everything I needed to do and I did that throughout the game,” Jones said, via Ralph Vacchiano of SNY.

Giants head coach Joe Judge shared a similar sentiment after the 26-7 loss that dropped the Giants to 5-8 on the season. Jones said that he does not think any of the bumps or bruises from Sunday will keep him from facing the Browns in next week’s game.

  1. Jones isn’t good. And Garrett is a better coach but he doesn’t have good personnel around him and he is in a HC system not suited to,him.

  2. if Jones is unable to run… he shouldn’t play. The GIANTS offensive line cant protect him standing in the pocket. play McCoy until Jones is 100% healthy.

  3. Last year Daniel Jones was a rookie QB on a team that already knew the offensive scheme. Then they switched coaches, so this year everyone on the Giants’ team is learning a new offensive scheme. That’s more difficult than having a rookie QB. Hopefully they stop making changes and have some continuity. Tom Brady ran the same offense in New England for 6 super bowl victories. Even though coaches came and went, everything else stayed the same. It’s easy to plug in one or two new guys. Stability is good.
