Baker Mayfield – Daniel Jones comments

The New York Giants drafted Daniel Jones with the number six overall draft pick in the 2019 NFL draft. Since then, the Giants and Jones have been destroyed on Twitter and other platforms by fans and media alike.

After the first preseason game for Daniel Jones, some opinions were slightly changed. The one who hasn’t changed was Baker Mayfield. Mayfield made the comments that Daniel Jones is not a winner and he was shocked that the New York Giants drafted Daniel Jones. For the record, Mayfield and Jones played in two different situations in their collegiate careers. Mayfield was a started for the Oklahoma Sooners who were successful with head coach Lincoln Riley after transferring from Texas Tech. Jones, however, played for Duke and Duke has never been known for its football expertise. Duke is a basketball college and Jones didn’t have a winning record (17-19) but worked with what he had.

The big step for Daniel Jones will be his first NFL start/game. If Jones can come out and provide an impact on the field, he will shut his critics up very quickly.

Ezekiel Elliott – Contract disputes

Ezekiel Elliott who? Jerry Jones thought it was funny to say that comment. Elliott is a star running back in the NFL, and even if Jones doesn’t think the Cowboys need Elliott, that might not be the case. Elliott led the league in rushing two of his three NFL years, and the Cowboys have always been known to be a running football team. They could do running back by a committee, but they will need Elliott if they don’t do an excellent job in week one. On top of this, the Cowboys could lose to a Daniel Jones led team without Elliott in the backfield.

Questions from the podcast team

Did the comments from Baker Mayfield about Daniel Jones make you feel a little for Jones? Will Daniel Jones be a franchise quarterback for the New York Giants? Do the Dallas Cowboys need Ezekiel Elliott?
