Giants co-owner John Mara takes blame for Daniel Jones’ failures, rules out trading for Deshaun Watson

Daniel Jones is likely to get a different chunk at the Massive Blue Apple.

The Giants introduced new normal supervisor Joe Schoen on Wednesday, but it was co-operator John Mara who possibly had the most telling quote of the day.

Even though Schoen explained the stuff that’s fairly typical of first-time GMs — including planning to establish out an offense that completely supports the incumbent passer — Mara took the complete brunt of the blame on Jones’ shortcomings.

Speaking with media subsequent Schoen’s introduction, Mara took blame for the way Jones’ vocation has unfolded so significantly.

“We do come to feel Daniel can perform,” Mara advised media. “We have done anything feasible to screw this kid up.”

That isn’t substantially of an overstatement: The Giants are now heading toward their third head coach (and fourth offensive coordinator) when Jones has been beneath heart for the Giants. That’s not exactly the most inviting environment for a young QB to improve and adapt in.

To that conclude, Jones just isn’t without having blame: He has suffered accidents in his last two seasons and turned the ball around at a blistering pace, with 49 turnovers in 38 games.

His 2021 season ended prematurely immediately after he endured a neck personal injury in 7 days 11, but to that point, Jones experienced thrown 10 touchdowns to 7 interceptions on the year, with a different three fumbles misplaced.

Nevertheless, the Giants, had difficulties further than Jones, together with a porous offensive line, injuries to receivers, the coaching conundrum and a general organizational ineptitude in the course of the Dave Gettleman era, which arrived to an finish following 2021.

When questioned, Mara stated, “we are not buying and selling for Deshaun Watson.”

“There is so numerous explanations why we would not do that,” Mara ongoing. “Cap-clever we could not manage it. But far more importantly, with the allegations that are out there proper now, it can be just not the appropriate for us.”

New York will have to make a determination on Jones’ fifth-year option this offseason, which will retain him all but locked in by way of the 2023 season.

For now, Schoen goes to do the job to “create an offense to accentuate what Daniel does finest.”

We are going to see if Mara and the new regime can un-screw-up their hopeful franchise QB.
