Getty New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones is entering a make-or-break season in 2022.

The New York Giants are rallying around starting quarterback Daniel Jones. Last week, it was former Giants wide receiver Golden Tate defending Jones. This week, it’s current backup quarterback Davis Webb.

Webb offered his support of Jones while speaking on the Giants Huddle podcast.

During the appearance, Webb said Jones is “one of the better quarterbacks” he’s ever played with and predicted that Jones will have his “best year” in 2022.

“Daniel has been up and down when it comes to injuries,” Webb said, via Giants.com. “However, he’s healthy right now. I think he’s going to have his best year. I’m a big believer in him He’s one of the better quarterbacks I’ve ever worked with…

“He works very, very hard. He can throw it, he can run, he’s very athletic. I’ve had the pleasure of being around a lot of good quarterbacks, whether that be Baker Mayfield, Pat Mahomes, Eli Manning, Sam Darnold, Josh McCown, Josh Allen, Matt Barkley, Mitch Trubisky, a lot of good players, and he’s one of them. He’s a good player.”

For Jones to have his “best year” as a pro, all he has to do is surpass his 2019 rookie year statistics. The former first-round pick went 3-9 as a starter that season, throwing for 24 touchdown passes and averaging 232.8 passing yards per game.

Jones’ statistics have been muted the past two seasons, as he’s focused more energy on reducing the turnovers that plagued him during his rookie year. As a result, the Giants haven’t really won more games. He was 5-9 as a starter in 2020 and 4-7 as a starter last season.

Jones, who appeared on the same episode of the Giants Huddle podcast as Webb, said he’s “excited” to play under head coach Brian Daboll and offensive coordinator Mike Kafka.

“I am excited,” Jones said, per Giants.com. “When you look at both of those guys and the success they’ve had on offense and places they’ve been, that’s been fun to watch. It’s exciting for all of us to be a part of that. We understand there’s a lot of work to do before we get there, but we’re excited for what we can be.”

Davis Webb Compares Giants Offense to Buffalo/Kansas City

When the Giants were building their coaching staff this offseason, they wanted to bring together minds that could revolutionize their offense. Brian Daboll brings experience from his time spent as offensive coordinator with the Buffalo Bills, while Mike Kafka offers a perspective from serving as quarterbacks coach (and passing game coordinator) with the Kansas City Chiefs.

Webb, who played with Patrick Mahomes in college at Texas Tech and spent the last three seasons under Daboll with the Bills, said the Giants’ offense will be a combination of the Buffalo and Kansas City offensive philosophies.

“It’s a good combination of both,” Webb said, per Giants.com. “Obviously, the meat is probably in Buffalo, but there are some serious potatoes there in Kansas City. They’ve has some great offenses, obviously led by Pat (Mahomes), Andy Reid, Mike (Kafka), there’s been a lot of good minds over there. It’s kind of fun to learn new concepts, new ways of doing it, and Kafka has done a really good job installing it.”

The Bills and Chiefs both ranked among the top five offensive units in the NFL last season in terms of both scoring and total yards.

The Giants Haven’t Ranked That High on Offense Since…

The 2005 season. So, almost 20 years.

In 2010, the Giants had the fifth ranked offense in terms of yards but ranked seventh in terms of scoring. Two years earlier in 2008, they had the third ranked scoring offense but ranked seventh in terms of total yards.

The last time the Giants ranked among the top five teams in both offensive categories was 2005. The Giants had the third best scoring offense and the fourth best total offense; they finished 11-5 and won the NFC East that season.

Patriots Veteran Has Strong Words For Teammates; Calls For Ego Check

Getty Jakobi Meyers

Many are worried that the New England Patriots offense has struggled in training camp. The unorthodox approach to playcalling and lack of an offensive coordinator has some wondering if this setup is the best situation for Mac Jones.

As the entire Patriots offense tries to get on the same page, the team’s leading receiver for the last two years, Jakobi Meyers, had some interesting and strong words about the transition. Meyers spoke with NFL Network’s Mike Giardi and Scott Pioli, who stressed how important it is for the vets to get their egos in check.

"You’ve got to be really able to throw your egos out the door. We had a conversation about that the other day… just worry about where you’re trying to be now. We understand we did things a certain way before, but it’s not about that anymore.” – Jakobi Meyers #Patriots https://t.co/h5nBWz0jeO

Here is a transcript of Meyers’ interview captured by NESN’s Zack Cox:

Is it Time to Panic?

Why is Meyers speaking candidly about some of the issues the Patriots’ offense is having? Because it has been pretty evident to anyone who has had a chance to watch the unit practice through training camp.

Aside from a few bright spots from DeVante Parker, Tyquan Thornton, and high usage of hybrid player Ty Montgomery, the Patriots’ defense has had a clear advantage in the early stages. In a direct quote from Mac Jones, Patriots.com’s Evan Lazar wrote that the team’s offense “has a lot of room to grow,” in one of his early assessments.

ESPN.com’s Mike Reiss commented about a high number of “no-chance plays” coming from the offense. The first inclination is to blame the Patriots’ new offensive play-caller Matt Patricia and those assisting him, such as Joe Judge.

Fox’s First Things First personality Chris Broussard slammed the Patriots’ offense’s chance of succeeding with Patricia leading the way. Broussard tweeted, “not good.”

There is one potentially positive spin to put on the dominance of the Patriots’ defense in training camp sessions. Perhaps the Pats’ defense is set for a strong season, and New England’s offense is being prepared for the rigors of a long NFL season by a group that will give opponents fits throughout the year.

Ideally, you’d like to see a little more give and take from a team standpoint. If it’s too one-sided in favor of one unit, the indication is that the one that comes out on the losing end more times than not is a bit weak.

We won’t know for sure until the regular season gets underway. For now, we’ll see the first test of sorts on Thursday, August 11, when the Patriots take on the New York Giants in the preseason opener.

Patriots Notes and Quotes
  • Nelson Agholor Likes the New Offense

After a disappointing first year with the Patriots in 2021, per Providence Journal’s Mark Daniels, the new looks have made Agholor feel like he’s “in a position to play faster.”

Agholor had just 37 receptions for 473 yards and 3 TDs in 2021. That production came in the first season after he signed a two-year, $22 million free-agent deal. In 2020 with the Raiders, Agholor had 48 receptions for 896 yards and 8 TDs.

If Agholor could come somewhere close to that production level in 2022, the concerns about the Patriots’ offense would be quieted. Still, Jones and Co. need more than one receiver production if they plan to be a dangerous unit.
