Daniel Jones is the ‘best quarterback in New York’


There is a faction on social media and the internet that believes the New York Giants are a poorly run organization. Many believe the Giants should have selected USC quarterback Sam Darnold with the second overall pick in last year’s NFL Draft instead of Penn State running back Saquon Barkley.

This year, the Giants were lambasted for taking Duke quarterback Daniel Jones sixth overall instead of one of the stud defensive players int he draft such as Kentucky edge rusher Josh Allen.

It’s way too early to make judgements on these moves but there are some who believe the Giants are headed in the right direction with Barkley and Jones.

Former New York Jets head coach is one expert who believes that Jones right now is a better player than Darnold, who is missing games again due to an illness. On a television interview on Monday morning, Ryan called Jones “the best quarterback in New York”.

“The reason I’m saying it is because I think his fundamentals are much better,” Ryan said Monday on ESPN’s “Get Up.” per The Post. “I love Sam Darnold, don’t get me wrong. I still think he’s going to be a tremendous player. But I think this guy right here [Jones] has got competitive greatness in him. I think he’s going to be a superstar.”

Jones has just one game under his belt but what a game it was (23/36, 336 yards, 2 TD and two rushing TDs) on Sunday in Tampa as Jones led the Giants to a 32-31 comeback victory.

“I mean, nobody could see this coming,” Ryan said facetiously. “Look, I’ll be honest, I never wanted to see him come in this early in the season. But now I get why they did it. They realize what they have here. He was ready to perform at this level sooner actually than I thought. I thought it was going to be the bye week and then he was going to come in….But I knew this kid, he’s got the markings of a superstar.”

Let’s not forget Ryan is the guy who hitched his future to Mark Sanchez at one time.
