QB Daniel Jones ‘feels responsibility’ after Giants fire OC Jason Garrett


The New York Giants stunned few, if any, coming off their uninspiring 30-10 prime-time loss on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers by firing offensive coordinator Jason Garrett on Tuesday as they sat twenty fifth within the NFL averaging 18.9 factors per sport and twenty third with 322.8 offensive yards per contest. 

Shortly after Big Blue confirmed that call, head coach Joe Judge advised media members he felt “we gotta make some moves to give our offense an opportunity to change some things up, be productive and hopefully score more points.” On Wednesday, quarterback Daniel Jones addressed Garrett’s dismissal. 

“I feel responsibility for our lack of production as an offense. I feel that,” Jones defined, in keeping with Ryan Morik of SNY. “I think we all should feel that. I don’t think that’s changed today. I still feel like that. Coach Judge is gonna make his decisions as a head coach, that’s his job, but I don’t think that should change how we feel about how we’ve played, the points we score, how we’ve done at times. I think we know we’ve gotta do better, and that falls on each one of us, on players, certainly.”

Per ESPN stats, Jones is tied for twenty fifth total with 9 landing passes and is twenty first with 2,226 passing yards. The third-year professional added he accepts blame for Garrett’s departure forward of Thanksgiving. 

“That’s obviously a big part of how we feel right now,” New York’s QB1 stated. “I think if you don’t feel like that, there’s an issue, and if you don’t take responsibility in our lack of production, I certainly do, and that’s what makes it tough. It’s on all of us to perform better and produce.” 

Jones is twenty eighth amongst eligible quarterbacks with an 84.0 passer score and twenty sixth with a 40.8 complete QBR. The 24-year-old should now hope new play-caller, senior offensive assistant and former Cleveland Browns head coach Freddie Kitchens can get probably the most out of his bodily skills because the Giants proceed evaluations to find out if the first-round draft choose from 2019 could be their long-term reply on the sport’s most essential place.
