Giants Have No Plans To Bench Daniel Jones 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Tue Oct 22, 2019 1:00 pm

The New York Giants have lost three straight games, but Pat Shurmur has no plans to bench Daniel Jones.

\"No,\" Shurmur said when asked Monday if he would consider making a switch at quarterback. \"I think Daniel is going to learn from everything that\'s going on. Just like all the other rookies and their playing, they\'re going to learn from the things that happen. But you have to learn and you have to win games, and I\'m well aware of that. I\'m totally well aware of that.\"

Through six games (five starts), Jones has turned the ball over 13 times, with seven interceptions and six fumbles.

He had eight total touchdowns (six passing) this year and has thrown for 1,144 yards at a 61.1 completion percentage with a 75.0 QB rating.

\"Certainly, ball security is primary, especially for the quarterback. He got it swatted out of his hand on a screen. He was trying to hold off, Saquon [Barkley] popped a little bit late. But generally speaking, yeah, he has to secure the ball better,\" Shurmur said. \"I think as you study quarterbacks, they all have issues at times. But it\'s certainly something that we\'ve got to get fixed.\"
