Daniel Jones has what it takes to steer the Giants to a Tremendous Bowl win in New York … based on David Tyree, who is aware of slightly one thing about successful a Lombardi Trophy.
The previous Giants receiver and particular groups ace joined Babcock and Mojo on the “TMZ Sports activities” TV present (airs day by day on FS1) — a day after the G-Males gained a highway playoff sport — the place the Tremendous Bowl 42 hero was requested if Jones was, with none doubt, the group’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 permit 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 12 months. He is earned the proper, he is been dominant, he is been constant, he is restricted turnovers. He is completed every thing you possibly can ask a quarterback to do and he is obtained the proper temperament within the New York Metropolis market.”
In fact, David was half of (arguably) the best play in Tremendous Bowl historical past, the “Helmet Catch.” Tyree, with the Giants trailing Tom Brady and the undefeated Patriots by 4 factors with beneath 2 minutes left within the 4th quarter, and All-Professional Rodney Harrison blanketing him, miraculously got here down with an important Eli Manning cross on third & 5.
Just some performs later, Manning threw the Tremendous Bowl-winning landing cross to Plaxico Burress.
Query is, can 25-year-old Jones play nicely sufficient to steer the Giants to a different Tremendous Bowl?

Let’s simply be trustworthy, I consider in all these guys who play at huge receivers however I am simply nearly as good as them and I used to be the third and 4th huge receiver on the roster. That is wonderful what’s taking place.”
David says with an offseason so as to add expertise, the group will proceed to enhance.
“They’re gonna be capable to have some wage cap, capable of make some good strikes available in the market within the offseason however clearly, they need to signal these centerpieces like Saquon [Barkley], Daniel Jones, and Dexter Lawrence.”
Talking 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 positioning of the 2008 catch, and this season’s SB.
The camp, which is able to happen on February 3, does not simply deal with operating and catch … Tyree says they will additionally train the children life abilities.
There’s extra — we additionally talked to David in regards to the job head coach Brian Daboll‘s completed this season, taking primarily the identical roster Joe Decide went 4-13 with only a season in the past, and going 9-7-1 and successful a playoff sport.
