World News – US – Daniel Jones surrounded by quarterback volatility


The franchise quarterback looked exactly like that designation in a resounding second half last week Carson Wentz continued to rise from the turf to deliver to the Eagles

His broken offensive line allowed six sacks and Wentz lost a fumble that led to a Ravens touchdown He only passed 54 yards in the first half and the Eagles lost 24-6 The rout does not ‘never materialized, however, as Wentz threw for two touchdowns and raced for another as the Eagles beat the mighty Ravens 22-6 in the second half and came just short, losing 30-28

« I mean, Carson is the type of guy who is going to put the team on the back burner, and especially when we face adversity, » said Eagles coach Doug Pederson. « He wants the ball in his hands all the time Carson, playing as hard as him, has really kept us in this game » « 

Not long ago it was unwise to doubt Wentz as a quarterback in the present and long into the future He was an MVP candidate in 2017 and in June 2019 he signed a four-year extension worth up to $ 144 million, securing him throughout the 2024 season Still, there was knee surgery, poor play – nine interceptions in the first six games of the season – an unexpected loss and just like that, whispers in the center of Philadelphia around Wentz like maybe not this that the fan base thought he was and hoped he would be

That can change quickly for quarterbacks No one needs to alert Daniel Jones of this He stepped in for Eli Manning to bench in Week 3 last season, won his first two NFL starts and, just like that, was anointed as Next In Line, the appropriate successor to Manning’s 16-year period Since then, thanks to good play, lots of bad, a high ankle sprain that cost him two games and therefore, so many losses – 14 losses in his next 15 starts – claiming Jones is the answer leads to more of questions

Such is the fickle nature of playing quarterback in the NFL It seemed like the NFC was populated with young guns for the next decade Dak Prescott with the Cowboys Wentz to Philly Jones with the giants Perhaps Dwayne Haskins in Washington

Now watch Prescott is out with serious ankle surgery and has no contract for 2021 (although the Cowboys can hit him again with the franchise tag) Wentz is going through some turmoil and has a choice second round, Jalen Hurts, seated next to him in the boardroom and spends more time on the pitch Jones is struggling – he’s yet to appear in a game this season without returning the ball – and last week’s 20-19 victory over Washington has calmed rumors (for now) that the Giants will be able to  » Get Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence in 2021 NFL Draft Haskins is benched in Washington and demoted to third-string status, clearly not what new head coach Ron Rivera has in mind in this position

Jones and Wentz will meet Thursday night at Lincoln Financial Field, their teams with a total of two wins after six weeks

« I think Daniel did a good job executing the game plan and the games that were claimed for him, » first-year Giants coach Joe Judge said of the quarterback. which he inherited from the previous coaching regime “We want him to be aggressive, we just want him to be smart There are times when our game plan can include throwing the thing onto the pitch on deep passes There are times when maybe a little nickel and gradation, get the ball to some guys below, let them catch and run the ball

« We’re not really concerned with the stats here, it’s not something that feeds into everything we do. We come out of the game by really evaluating how he performed in what was presented to him, in the calls and game situations We are not a statistics driven organization, there is only one thing that matters There are a few key and critical factors that lead to success in the NFL The other stuff is just fluff «  »

There are fluff, and then there are facts Wentz is 30th in the NFL in the passer rankings at 712 Jones is 31st at 710 The only quarterback rated worse than these two is Sam Darnold (707)

Jones is No. 4 of all quarterfinals with 204 rushing yards Wentz is No. 5 with 171 yards It’s as much a byproduct of offensive line failures and general dysfunction as it is the athleticism of these two players

« I think you could draw parallels when it comes to the two good-sized guys, they’re both guys who have the ability to run with the ball in their hands and extend the game, » he said. declared the judge “These two guys do a lot of big throws on the field when they come out of the pocket, and they can really extend it and let the receivers open up. There are certainly parallels you could draw with them «  »
