Colin Cowherd: “Is Daniel Jones a franchise quarterback? Maybe, maybe he has a second act after New York like a Ryan Tannehill and succeeds, but what Daniel Jones isn’t is ‘special’, and what he isn’t is good enough to elevate this very mediocre roster. He’s an incredibly ordinary quarterback, there is no real ‘it’ here, and there is no 'special'. The Giants are a bad franchise. They’ve been rebuilding since Eli left and they’re still not good. When Daniel Jones came out all I heard was ‘can’. He ‘can’ be coached, he went to Duke, he ‘can’ learn, he is big enough, there is a lot of Eli… but there is no special to it. Zach Wilson struggled last year but I see special. Trevor Lawrence struggled last year but I see special. Trey Lance only had two starts, you can see special. You know what Daniel Jones looks like? A guy that played football at… DUKE. It’s Division-I, but it’s like -- get good grades, not recruited at all by a top 15 programs, not a shot at Duke but… Do you ever talk about Duke in January in college football? If you’re not going to convince me that Jimmy Garoppolo would not make a difference for this losing franchise you’re out of your mind.” (Full Segment Above)
Watch Colin Cowherd explain why he thinks it’s time the Giants get more proactive with their vision at starting quarterback, as Colin says it’s pretty obvious that three-year starter Daniel Jones, who recently had his fifth-year option declined by the Giants, is not ‘special’ in any way.
Check out the video above as Colin details why he thinks New York should look to acquire Jimmy Garoppolo from the 49ers.
