Joe Judge not sure Daniel Jones plays Sunday, but sure he’s their QB for next year

The Giants played without quarterback Daniel Jones in last Sunday’s loss to the Browns and the team doesn’t know at this point if he’ll be able to play against the Ravens this Sunday.

Head coach Joe Judge said on Wednesday that he’s gotten “good feedback” from Jones and the team’s trainers about the quarterback’s hamstring and ankle, but that they’ll see how things go in practice before making a call. Judge hopes to make that call on Friday, but doesn’t need to wait to make a long-term call on Jones.

Judge was asked if he believes Jones is the man for next year and beyond, he said Jones is “our quarterback.”

“This guy’s definitely earned my respect. I kind of made it hard on him in a lot of ways, and he didn’t blink,” Judge said, via Ralph Vacchiano of SNY.

Jones may be their quarterback for 2021, but there’s plenty of work for the Giants to do on offense. They rank 31st in points scored and yards from scrimmage, so settling the quarterback position hasn’t been a boon for the unit as a whole.

  1. Jones has a strong arm and good athleticism, but the few games McCoy has played demonstrate how far Jones still needs to go to have a full command of the offense. Getting Saquon back will make things much easier on Jones, now that the o-line has actually started run blocking. The receivers haven’t “bailed out” their quarterbacks nearly enough this season, considering what they’re getting paid. Edge rusher is still a glaring need, but with the offense ranked 31st, you need to add more more weapons for your quarterback. Slayton is a good #2, Shepard is a good #3 (when healthy), and Tate is washed up. Engram is an inconsistent matchup nightmare that the Giants have never figured out how to use properly. How he made the pro bowl is beyond my comprehension.
