Taylor or Jones: A NY Quarterback Controversy


Richard Watts

October 24, 2023


Which quarterback should the New York Giants commit to? The New York Giants have had a very underwhelming season thus far. The team has only 2 wins on the season with a seemingly never-ending cycle of offensive linemen that has allowed the second most sacks in the NFL. Until Sunday's 14-7 win against the Washington Commanders, the team failed to score a first-half touchdown on offense in three straight games. However, with a last-second loss against the Buffalo Bills and a win this weekend, the New York Giants find themselves in the middle of a quarterback controversy.

This past summer, the New York Giants were riding high on the coattails of a 9-7 season that saw the team's first playoff win since Super Bowl XLVI. First-year coach Brian Daboll took home Coach of the Year honors as his New York Giants team surpassed all expectations and was truly the “feel good” story of the NFL. For his efforts, Daniel Jones signed a four-year $160 million contract to lead the team into the 2023 season. Through the first five games of this season, the New York Giants offense looks nothing like the team that upset the Minnesota Vikings in the playoffs last season. With Jones at the helm, the New York Giants are in the bottom 5 of all major offensive categories across the NFL.

Jones left the New York Giant's week 5 matchup against the Miami Dolphins with a neck injury. Backup quarterback, Tyrod Taylor, finished the game and was named the starter for the team's Week 6 game on the road against Buffalo. Tyrod played very well as the New York Giants had a chance to win very late into the 4th quarter. Taylor continued to shine Sunday as he led the team to a much-needed home victory.

Many sports outlets are now debating whether the New York Giants should stick with Taylor or go back to Jones. Jones was without superstar running back, Saquon Barkley, for two weeks leading up to his injury, a luxury Taylor was awarded for both of his starts. Barkley injured his ankle in Week 2 in the closing seconds of a win against the Arizona Cardinals. Jones had to rely on journeyman runningback, Matt Brieda, before his neck injury. Taylor has also been seemingly better protected by his offensive line than Jones. Jones has been sacked 28 times in his 5 starts, and Taylor has only been sacked 7 times.


With back-to-back impressive performances under his belt and what appears to be a better command of the offense, Tyrod Taylor has given the New York Giants a tough decision to make before their week 8 game against the New York Jets. Daniel Jones or Tyrod Taylor?
