The Athletic’s Dan Duggan reports barring “a dramatic second-half turnaround, the Giants will likely be in the market for a new general manager.”
Another losing season will likely force the Giants’ hand with Dave Gettleman, whose fate has been tied to underachieving QB Daniel Jones since the team used the sixth overall pick in the 2019 draft to land Jones.
Per Duggan, Jones in 2021 is 25th in completion percentage, 25th in passing yards per game, 25th in touchdown passes, 26th in yards per attempt, 24th in passer rating, 25th in QB rating, 25th in DVOA, and 23rd in EPA. By nearly every measure, he has been among the league’s worst quarterbacks.
There could be “intrigue” this offseason in the potential replacement of offensive coordinator Jason Garrett, whose stale offense has barely improved from last year’s disastrous performance. A creative OC could mean big things for Saquon Barkley, Kadarius Toney, Sterling Shepard, and the rest of the fantasy-relevant Giants in 2022.
