As those throws slowly undermined the confidence of Jones, who still has a troubling lack of feel and ease in the pocket, we began to see a skittish quarterback behind that offensive line, almost waiting for the inevitable to happen.
We saw his internal clock go off course and we saw the version of Jones that made many Giants fans’ stomachs turn early in his career.
To that end, the Giants dropped Jones, who had too much success this week, leaving him dealing with a neck injury that may or may not be related to the injury that cost him the final six games of the 2021 season.

Jones, who received a four-year contract worth $160 million, is a quarterback the team thought it could win with and was the best option the Giants drafted last year.
Whether they can actually beat better teams with him, we may never know as long as this offensive line continues to resemble a sieve.

Injuries haven’t helped the unit at all, especially when it comes to your two best players, left tackle Andrew Thomas and center John Michael Schmitz.
