Daniel Jones: I feel responsible for our lack of production

Giants quarterback Daniel Jones will be one of the players most affected by the team’s decision to fire offensive coordinator Jason Garrett and he spoke to the media about the change to the coaching staff for the first time on Wednesday.

Jones said that he’ll miss Garrett because “he was a big part of what we were doing on offense and obviously leadership,” but that he doesn’t think there are going to be radical changes to the offense now that Garrett is out of the picture. Jones also said that while Garrett may be the one who is unemployed, he takes accountability for the offense’s underwhelming performance during a 3-7 start to the season.

“I feel responsible for our lack of production as an offense,” Jones said, via the team’s website. “I feel that. I think we all should feel that, and I don’t think that’s changed today. I still feel like that. Coach Judge is going to make the decisions as the head coach, that’s his job, but I don’t think that should change how we feel about how we’ve played, the points we’ve scored, how we’ve done at times. I think we know we’ve got to do better. That falls on each one of us, on players and certainly me.”

The Giants are now ten games into Jones’ third season and he hasn’t made it clear that he’s the right long-term choice for the job with the Giants. The remaining seven games would be a good time for him to make that case or Garrett’s likely to have company on the way out of the organization.

  1. I like Daniel Jones. I think he can be a good NFL QB. He makes some dumb mistakes, but most QB’s do (not named Brady)

  2. Jones seems to get an awful lot of passes from the fans, media, and coaching staff. I realize hes young and has some potential but he gots a lot more leeway then most of these young QBs. Sorry to say it but as much as people hate on Eli, the dude made the Giants relevant.

  3. It’s not his fault he has had a bottom 5 line every year. No qb can overcome that. Brady and Mahomes have both looked awful when they had no protection.

  4. all this guy needs is a hall of famer at every position and he’d probably deliver a few wins.

  5. It will be the unkindest cut of all, and proof of the need for a wide broom, if we have to use those two first round picks for a quarterback.It will have been 0 for the millennium.

  6. Clearly it is not your fault Daniel. It has been decided that it was actually Jason Garrett’s fault. You’ll see. You will be great going forward.
