Giants' Decision To Extend Daniel Jones Sparks Controversy After Disastrous Performance

Following a disastrous Monday Night Football performance, questions have arisen regarding the abilities of Giants quarterback Daniel Jones.

His troubling 2-to-6 touchdown-to-interception ratio over the first four games of the season has cast doubt on the front office's decision to award Jones a substantial four-year, $160 million contract extension during the offseason.

During a recent appearance on Undisputed, Super Bowl XXXVII champion wide receiver Keyshawn Johnson expressed his belief that choosing to sign Jones for the long term instead of running back Saquon Barkley has left the Giants in a precarious situation.

Johnson argued that when Barkley shares the backfield with Jones, the quarterback's performance improves significantly, and not retaining Barkley was a grave mistake.

Despite the challenges of playing behind an offensive line that allowed Jones to be sacked an astonishing 10 times during the Monday night game, Johnson, a three-time Pro Bowl wide receiver, contended that Jones has regressed from his promising 2022 campaign.

Johnson cited Jones's tendency to panic and make inexplicable decisions, which are unbecoming of a starting quarterback in a high-pressure market like New York City.

In an effort to rebound, the embattled quarterback will have an opportunity to redeem himself as the Giants travel to Miami to face Tua Tagovailoa and the formidable Dolphins on Sunday at 1 p.m. ET.

The outcome of this matchup will undoubtedly be closely scrutinized as the Giants seek to reverse their fortunes and silence the growing skepticism surrounding Daniel Jones.
