General manager Dave Gettleman stated the obvious this summer when he said this would be an important season for Daniel Jones. The Giants brass hasn’t wavered in its belief that the player it took with the sixth pick in the 2019 draft has the makings of a franchise quarterback. But there was an expectation that Jones would erase all doubts about that belief during his third season.
Midway through this critical year, Jones has not provided a definitive answer.
The story went on to talk about where Jones ranks in the NFL in various stats, and it's not pretty. In the story, co-owner John Mara said this offseason that he wouldn’t measure Jones by “any specific benchmarks other than let’s win some more games.” The Giants are 3-6 and Jones has an 11-24 career record as a starter. The good news is the offense seems to be getting healthy, so Jones still has time to make his mark, and a case to be the team's future starter.
Golladay will be a risky play following three missed appearances but with Sterling Sheppard out there will be open targets to be vacuumed up by the Giants wide receiver. His status will take attention off Kadarius Toney who remained of the injury report for the first time in several weeks.
They won’t know his status until later in the week, the tweet went on to say. Glennon would get the start in Week 6 but he's dealing with a banged up group of WRs as well as Barkley at running back, who we know is already out. To make things worse, it's a home game against the Rams.
