Move over Jones


Recommended Posts

Yeah 8.5 million isnt backup money, that's "You might start" money.

It tells me the FO doesn't have faith in Jones to 1) Stay healthy and 2) His neck is more fucked up than previously thought.

I don't understand this at all unless Jones' injury is worse than we thought or they've fallen in love with Willis. 

He's never finished a season healthy so there's that.

And if he doesn't start all 17 games there's zero chance he's back next year.

Taylor gives the Giants a gap QB.

I think they just want a guy who can hold it down if Jones bombs or gets hurt and not have a glennon/fromme disaster again.  Like a higher basement at the position

This is true but we're not in a "win now" situation and there's holes all over the roster. If Jones goes down for six games who cares if we go 1-5 or 3-3 over that span? This money could have been better spent elsewhere if they're serious about giving Jones a chance.

If Jones goes down it gives us a chance to see if we can "win" with Tyrod, not to mention it atleast keeps the offense functioning.

It's hard to evaluate players when the QB is Jake Fromm lol

I was really hoping for Maritto or Mitch ... but fuck DJ 

Not sure why the hate on DJ.    This move tells me the Giants are trying to field a team that can play and not stink up the joint... With the draft capital and the moves they've made and will be making, it tells me they're trying to fix whatever they can... I don't know much about Taylor but the money, as mentioned above, isn't back up money... DJ was hurt by having bad teams and coaches... and I think the injuries have taken a toll on him.    From a football standpoint he maybe walking wounded... like an RG3.    But I'm not going to hate on him like somehow he just sucks and everything is his fault.

Plus DJ will have to learn a competent offense this season...   He has not had to do that!

 

Having Tyrod will be much better if Jones gets hurt, at least it is not like we are giving up

Because he sucks. He has no skill. Dude threw 8 interceptions in a College game.

I think his "neck injury" is actually nerve damage that's affecting his grip and/or arm strength. Don't be surprised when we draft a QB in the first.

Honestly. 

A new GM and HC (who's an offensive minded guy) who's installing a new regime.

A new QB is almost a guarantee at this point. 

And two picks inside the top 10 is the time to do it.

Unless the QBs in that year's draft would be 2nd rounders any other year

This... very suspicious of sports doctors.  He needs a second opinion fast.  Nerve damage can be tricky.

I think they know, they've just been hiding it. He missed way too much time for a simple muscle injury.

Schoen is not Gettleman...we think

Could've been tanking without admitting as much....i.e. protecting their franchise QB, interested in his long term health, blah, blah, blah
