Daniel Jones has what it takes to guide the Giants to a Super Bowl win in New York … in response to David Tyree, who is aware of slightly one thing about successful a Lombardi Trophy.
The former Giants receiver and particular groups ace joined Babcock and Mojo on the “TMZ Sports” TV present (airs every day on FS1) — a day after the G-Men gained a highway playoff sport — the place the Super Bowl 42 hero was requested if Jones was, with none doubt, the staff’s franchise QB.
“I believe I mentioned 6 to eight weeks again, Daniel Jones is the quarterback for the New York Giants. You do not enable gold to stroll out of the constructing for the potential of platinum, proper?” Tyree requested.
“We’re not gonna sit up right here and say he deserves Deshaun Watson cash, however he deserves that full-blown alternative to characterize this group in the identical method that he did this yr. He’s earned the correct, he is been dominant, he is been constant, he is restricted turnovers. He’s accomplished every thing you’ll be able to ask a quarterback to do and he is bought the correct temperament within the New York City market.”
Of course, David was half of (arguably) the best play in Super Bowl historical past, the “Helmet Catch.” Tyree, with the Giants trailing Tom Brady and the undefeated Patriots by 4 factors with underneath 2 minutes left within the 4th quarter, and All-Pro Rodney Harrison blanketing him, miraculously got here down with a vital Eli Manning cross on third & 5.
Just just a few performs later, Manning threw the Super Bowl-winning landing cross to Plaxico Burress.
Question is, can 25-year-old Jones play nicely sufficient to guide the Giants to a different Super Bowl?
“Yeah, I believe the Giants are nearer than I ever might think about. Let’s simply be trustworthy, I imagine in all these guys who play at broad receivers however I’m simply nearly as good as them and I used to be the third and 4th broad receiver on the roster. This is wonderful what’s taking place.”
David says with an offseason so as to add expertise, the staff will proceed to enhance.
“They’re gonna be capable to have some wage cap, in a position to make some good strikes out there within the offseason however clearly, they should signal these centerpieces like Saquon [Barkley], Daniel Jones, and Dexter Lawrence.”
Speaking of Catch-42 or the helmet catch … Tyree is about to have a good time the fifteenth anniversary of the historic play by placing on a youth soccer camp, Catch Camp, in Arizona, the location of the 2008 catch, and this season’s SB.
The camp, which is able to happen on February 3, does not simply give attention to working and catch … Tyree says they will additionally train the youngsters life abilities.
There’s extra — we additionally talked to David concerning the job head coach Brian Daboll‘s accomplished this season, taking primarily the identical roster Joe Judge went 4-13 with only a season in the past, and going 9-7-1 and successful a playoff sport.
Tyree, who was Director of Player Development after retiring, was let go by Judge and GM Dave Gettleman … and let’s simply say he does not converse very fondly of how the group was run underneath the 2 males.
