Brian Daboll discusses interaction with Daniel Jones on the sidelines. Monday night, cameras captured Giants head coach Brian Daboll speaking animatedly to quarterback Daniel Jones as he exited the field following a game-winning, full-field interception return for a touchdown. Daboll was subsequently observed displaying Jones an image on a tablet before tossing it as he walked away.
On the tablet, what was Daboll attempting to show Jones?
In response to this query, Daboll told reporters, “I was attempting to show him, to see what he thought, and then to tell him what I observed.”
What was the intended outcome of the play that resulted in an opposing touchdown?
“No, I’m not going to get into the specifics,” Daboll said. We did not complete the task. The details appear apparent. Darren Waller was available in the rear of the end zone as a tight end. Jones instead threw it to a separate individual. And cornerback Devon Witherspoon of the Seahawks jumped the route.
In defense of Jones, how was he to see Waller? How was Jones to perceive others? He was under continual duress throughout Monday night’s game. He couldn’t set up and locate a receiver confidently. Ever.
It’s incredible that they even had a chance to score a touchdown. It occurred primarily because Jones ran with the ball when everything else failed (and everything else did fail).
When things go well, quarterbacks receive acclaim. They receive the censure when something goes wrong. Last night was a disaster because the Giants’ offensive line was made of Swiss cheese. The absence of cheese.
