Will 2021 be Daniel Jones’ last hurrah with New York Giants?

2 min read


New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones will enter Year 3 of his professional career facing mounting pressure. Although he made strides on film last season, the team has done very little winning with him at the helm.

To be fair, the Giants have done very little winning over the past decade regardless of who’s in charge or under center, but I digress…

2021 with be a make-or-break season for Jones and all those tied to him. If the Giants continue to lose, it’s likely general manager Dave Gettleman will be fired and Jones could potentially go with him. That’s why it’s imperative the team does all they can to protect him and surround him with talent.

In other words, it would be foolish to thin out the offensive line in front of him.

Dan Hanzus of NFL.com recently broke down the best and worst case scenarios for Jones in 2021, and like those of us at Giants Wire, reached a very obvious conclusion.

This is likely Jones’ last shot to prove he’s The Man in New York. If he stumbles through another mediocre season, both the 2019 first-rounder and GM Dave Gettleman will be out of the picture come 2022.

If Gettleman and Jones fail this coming season, the entire thing is going to be blown up once again. There will be restructuring from the top down, the team will enter the quarterback market and the status of head coach Joe Judge will be uncertain.

The Giants find themselves in a precarious position. The patience of ownership has run out and if the current group can’t get things done, 2022 will represent the start of a new but horrifyingly familiar cycle of relentless rebuilds.
