New York Giants third-year quarterback Daniel Jones hadn’t been as impressive as the team had hoped during the first week of training camp.
That all changed on Tuesday when he returned to the form that earned him the nickname “Danny Dimes”. When asked if he had any interceptions or a ground pass in the team’s first full practice, Jones lost count having found himself at the bottom of the stack in a full-scale skirmish which erupted during training.
“I’m not sure. I have to watch the tape,” Jones said. “I’m sure there were a few that I would like to get back. You know, get it out of my hands faster and see. “faster and sometimes be more precise. Just keep working, but I think we performed a little better.”
According to Giants.com editor-in-chief Dan Salamone,“Jones was on fire all day and especially during the one-on-one exercises. He also racked up assists during team times near the goal line, including a touchdown pass to wide receiver David Sills (below). Jones also used his legs for another score.

“I think the energy and the excitement and the drive to compete and to want to compete are all positive,” Jones said. “I think it doesn’t matter who it is – people who are thrilled to be here, people who want to play football, who want to compete. Right now the opponent is defense. They are our opponents, so we are competing against each other.
Training was interrupted by a scuffle which infuriated head coach Joe Judge to the point that he blasted his squad in a squad of players only after they had the whole squad in a punitive Swedish gymnastics regiment . His curse-laden tirade sent shockwaves through the establishment.
When asked if he had ever seen Judge so angry, Jones hit the high road.
“He can be excited, and I think the guys are responding to it and I think we definitely got the message today,” replied Jones, who also doesn’t see a repeat of today’s extracurricular activities afterwards. that the team knew the judge’s reaction. “There are consequences for that stuff and that’s how it is in the game. If you lose your temper there are consequences and it hurts the team, so that was the message and everything. the world understands it.
“We have to control our energy and our enthusiasm and want to be competitive,” Jones added. “I think we have to control that and be able to harness it and make it productive for what we’re trying to do.”
As for finishing at the bottom of the fray, Jones later said he was fine.
“I was fine. I was all good. No problem, ”Jones.
See you tomorrow, where the Giants hope Jones continues to lose dimes.
