Giants QB Daniel Jones’ all-time low QB rating after $160,000,000 contract spurs harsh ridicule from NFL fans

While some NFL teams decided to add the likes of QB Jimmy Garoppolo, or Aaron Rodgers to their roster this offseason, the New York Giants decided to go with their in-house product Daniel Jones. The Giants didn’t hesitate to make the QB their starter of the future, following his impressive campaign in 2022.

Though the Giants have their utmost trust in Jones, fans are yet to be convinced about the potential of the 26-year-old . Hence, whether Daniel Jones is worthy of the blockbuster contract he received from his team has been a hot debate among NFL fans since the deal was inked.

Daniel Jones sets all-time low QB rating record after $160m contract

The Giants earlier signed QB Daniel Jones to a four-year contract extension worth $160 million, including another $35 million in incentives. While this deal might not be as lucrative as that of Joe Burrow or Justin Herbert, the quarterback’s record of earning the all-time low QB Rating (8.3) marks the deal as a questionable act.

The sixth overall pick of the 2019 NFL Draft also tied with Matthew Stafford to get one of the lowest ratings (75) among the league’s QB1 in EA Sports’ ratings for “Madden NFL 24“. To add insult to injury, he got intercepted twice as well as got sacked seven times during Big Blue’s 40-0 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in the Sunday Night Football fixture.

NFL community brutally trolls Daniel Jones after disastrous performance

Arguably Dak Prescott is the most trolled dual-threat in the NFL right now, albeit Daniel Jones might also make the list pretty soon. Following the Giants’ devastating loss to the Cowboys, the NFL community didn’t hold back from taking digs at the team for inking such a massive deal with the 26-year-old.

Many fans even raised questions about his ability to shine on the field donning the Giants jersey.

A netizen wrote,” 160$ so he won’t even score a touchdown.”

By finalizing the whopping deal with their signal-caller, Big Blue used their non-exclusive franchise tag on Saquon Barkley. Though the franchise later signed a one-year, $11 million to the running back, some fans said they should ink him to a long-term deal instead of their QB1.

A person wrote,” Maybe they should have paid Saquon.”
