ITB: Do-or-Die Season for Giants QB Daniel Jones


The New York Giants’ 2024 season will come down to how quarterback Daniel Jones plays upon his return from injury and a rebuilt defense.

On the latest episode of “Inside The Birds,” legendary NFL Films analyst Greg Cosell joined hosts Geoff Mosher and Adam Caplan to discuss the New York Giants in the second part of their NFC East preview.

Malik Nabers

Greg Cosell: “Nabers is just a really high-level prospect. Marvin Harrison Jr. was number one on my board, but if Harrison was a 10, Nabers was a 9.98. He is a big-time prospect with number one wide receiver traits stamped all over him. He is physical, can line up anywhere, is a monster run after catch. His lower body from the waist down is as strong as any receiver I can remember.”

Brian Burns

Cosell: “Burns is big-time. He is a guy you can move around, but he is really good off the edge. He is gumby-ish, flexible.”

Isaiah Simmons

Cosell: “Simmons is obviously a high-level athlete. He has had a lot of issues with understanding how to play…You are dealing with a 6’4, 240 pound stud athlete. When the Giants got him last year, they used him a lot as a pass rusher and he showed some flashes.”

Daniel Jones

Cosell: “I still think Daniel Jones can be one of those solid mid-range NFL starters who if the offense with complementary pieces can function…There seemed to be a sense at the end of 2022 that Brian Daboll was developing more confidence in Jones to drop back and deliver the football. And then last year with no o-line he was under such duress.”

Evan Neal

Cosell: “The big question is right tackle because Evan Neal has not been very good. He has an issue that he has not been able to deal with and that is the top of the pass set arc. He just has major balance and body control issues.”
