The Giants ’weakest offense raises questions around Jason Garrett


Daniel Jones was already head to head against Tom Brady and the Bucks when he made the fatal mistake of not doing anything against anyone, the goat less.

When it happened when Jones was in a 24-10 setback late in the third quarter, when you opened your terrace door and most Giants fans could hear screams to the high skies:

Daniel Jones threw the ball to Steve McLendon.

Steve McClendon plays defensive tackle for the Bucks.

Jones looked to his left and was horrified at the pressure and McLendon was the only wide open player around.

“Bad decision there,” Eli Manning said on ESPN2.

That would be an understatement.

“He was color blind for a while and threw the wrong jersey I guess,” Manning said.

All right. McLendon wore a red jersey.

Soon it was 27-10 and say good night.

Jones was reelected at the beginning of the fourth quarter when he rolled to the right and Devin White telegraphed a tipped throw to Mike Edwards and when it ended the Bucks were 30, the Giants 10.

It was his year to make the big leap, and the ownership and management nurtured him Kenny Golladay and Kadarius Tony, and the anticipated comeback of Saquon Barkley, which looks like a vintage Barkley.

Golladay, a $ 72 million man, was targeted just twice.

Offensive coordinator Jason Garrett was once the target.

By Joe Judge.

“We need to do a better job of making our players make plays – we have a lot of good players,” the judge said. “We sit down tomorrow as a coaching staff and we have to make sure how we play this game and give our players the opportunity to make plays … As a player, there are some things that I would be disappointed too.”

The judge believes in Jones and hangs his hat on his development.

If you read between the lines, you can’t help but conclude that they trust Daniel Jones rather than Jason Garrett.

And when his franchise quarterback fell to 0-8 in prime time, there was little choice but to believe otherwise.

You can’t help but judge that the judge has reached the point where he is concerned that Garrett is withdrawing his franchise quarterback.

Jones, for his part, continues to publicly support his OC. This is the Manning Way.

“I know as a player, certainly I am. I’m responsible for how we’ve played and executed, and it’s up to me. It works well on us,” Jones said. “We are in a position to make plays, and we have to make them, and it definitely starts with me. I feel like we’re ready and we have a good game plan.

Asked if the offense still has faith in Garrett, Jones said: “Yes, I certainly do.”

When asked why, he said: “As I said, I think we are ready, we have a plan and we have not executed. I think we are responsible as players.

Jones was 4 years old when Brady won his first Super Bowl. He was 24 when Brady won his seventh in February.

And they don’t have the kind of support that Eli Manning had in his glory years. And, as we’ve learned over the years, Manning isn’t exactly the offensive line he was before.

It was their long-time opportunity to send electricity and hope through Giants fans still doubting them, and the disappointing, disappointing decade fills the franchise with the belief that it has lost its way and failed to honor its proud tradition.

On this night, the Giants needed more than Jones to boost their game and Great Brady against The Other Man in the Arena.

So you figured Jones might need some help, or a little luck, or both.

He got in some big way when the Brady Bullet was distracted by astonished Mike Evans, and an interception by Adori Jackson put Jones in first and goal 5.

Along with Barkley and Golladay and Tony for a change, Eli Manning told ESPN 2: “They may open a little more this week.”

So of course Jones, backpedaling and siege, lifted a rainbow pulled by LT Andrew Thomas for a 2-yard TD and made it to the Giants 10, Bucks 10.

And the Giants (3-7) never sniffed the end zone again.

It was the Bucs 17, the Giants 10 in the third quarter, and the judge asked Jones to get a yard from Brady 25 in the fourth. Jones had just 28 yards rushing on Kyle Rudolph. The right call of a judge. Incorrect Play-Call by Garrett. Because White was in Jones in a flash and knew exactly where the Bucks were coming from and the pass was incomplete.

“We need to do a better job of scoring points,” the judge said.

That’s the deficit of the last 26 games.

With no resemblance to the running game, with Barkley lacking in its explosiveness, Jones and his offense sometimes appear as if they are working hard to climb a hill. They are not making unruly penalties and challenging the jets in the self-inflicted injury category.

Neither Jones nor any of his players were in the mood to judge. The quarterback is safe. Not offensive coordinators.
