Emotional Daniel Jones says he will ‘miss’ Jason Garrett as Freddie takes over the kitchen reins

Danielle Jones clearly wasn’t ready to say goodbye to Jason Garrett.

“I will miss him,” Jones said Wednesday, the day before Garrett was fired.

The third-year quarterback became uncharacteristically emotional describing Tuesday’s farewell conversation with Garrett, after Jones learned the news in person in the feature from head coach Joe Judge.

“It was clearly a difficult conversation and um,” said a slightly suffocated Jones, scratching the back of his head with his left hand. “I think he is just who he is, best wishes for us, best wishes for me. And I think he was most of all.”

Garrett, 55, rarely left Jones’ side while he was here. He took the quarterback’s personal and professional development seriously. After all, it was his primary job: to help Giants’ franchise QB grow and succeed.

Garrett and Jones, 24, had a catch after every practice or took part in light throwing competitions, such as who could hit the crossbar of the goalpost from the first 40 yards.

Jones said he felt like he let Garrett down. Clearly, the quarterback feels like the failure of the offense was not on the OC.

“I feel responsible for the lack of production as a crime,” Jones said. “I think come. I think we should all feel it. I think if you don’t feel like it, there’s a problem. And we all take responsibility for our lack of production. I certainly do.” I’ll do it. That’s what makes it difficult.”

Senior offensive assistant Freddie Kitchen, who is expected to take over the play-calling, replaced Garrett with quarterback and QB coach Jerry Shuplinsky during Wednesday’s individual practice.

Jones said that a lot would change for him personally because of how much Garrett did to him.

“From a communication aspect, a game plan aspect, how we planned on the field, and then there was a lot of communication in terms of approaching a game off the field, the mindset of playing and leading an offense, he certainly helped me. with,” Jones said.

Asked if he thought Garrett’s firing was unfair, Jones said: “I think it’s up to the coach judge to make the decision for the team and how he sees it, and it’s our job to do our best.” Perform and play. That’s what I’m focused on and that’s what the team is going for.”

In addition to taking personal blame for Garrett’s firing, Jones also said top wide receiver Kenny Golladay needed to step up his game.

Jones said, “It’s about finding those opportunities when he’s in a matchup that we love or the route we like, and he has to do a good job and win in those conditions. ” “So I think it’s just finding those opportunities throughout the game and maybe calling some plays where he has chances. But he has to do a good job of winning and I have to do a good job bowling him.”

Despite requests, Goladay was not made available for interview on Wednesday. He was an outspoken critic of Garrett earlier this season, famously yelling at the offensive coordinator on the sidelines in Washington in Week 2.

Golladay had only two goals and one catch for 12 yards on Monday night’s run of 32 routes in Tampa, while Golladay said last week that he felt healthier than all season.

He will undoubtedly be a big part of Sunday’s game plan when the Giants (3-7) take on the Philadelphia Eagles (5-6).

“It’s about moving forward now, understanding that we have to keep going and it’s up to all of us to do better at each of our jobs,” Jones said. “We all have to play better and produce more.”

Corner James Bradberry said the message of Garrett’s firing was loud enough for everyone in the building, even the defense.

“It’s a production business, and we need to produce,” said Bradberry, who admitted that “I didn’t play to my standard, to my ability”, either against the Bux.

The Kitchen will be Jones’ third play-collar in three years, following the firing of Pat Shurmur and Garrett. The kitchens have sat atop the booth during this season’s games, but are now expected to head over to the side to call plays.

“I think it’s important for a play caller to be on the sidelines to have direct communication with the quarterback, number one,” Judge said. “Also to offer anything new to the team, if it has to design something or introduce a concept or a plan that we have to do.”

Jones said he didn’t expect anything to change with the “system and action” of the offense, just that they could sprinkle “different aspects” into their game plans.

Jones did not want to comment on how detrimental it is to his development that the Giants constantly change their OC, although clearly the lack of consistency has affected him.

“I haven’t thought about it, and I don’t think I’m thinking of anything like that,” he said. “My job is to play and play well. This is a production business and that is how you are judged. So it’s my job to be ready to play.”

Rudolph, Tony are DNPS

The Giants’ Week 12 injury report has 11 players, including safety Logan Ryan, who “have not come close to testing to come back” from the COVID-19 reserve list, the judge said. This means that Ryan has not yet tested negative. He needs 24 hours plus two negatives to test the reserve list and be active for Sunday’s game.

Wednesday’s practice was only a rehearsal, but six players were estimated as non-participants: WR Kadarius Tony (left quad) and Sterling Shepard (quad), TES Kyle Rudolph (right ankle) and Caden Smith (knee). , and Special Team Cullen Glaspia (calf) and Nate Ebner (knee).

RB Saxon Barkley (left ankle), CB Adori Jackson (quad), WR John Ross (quad) and Edge Lorenzo Carter (left ankle) were listed as limited.

The Giants placed special teammate Nate Ebner on the IR, signed TE Chris Myrick from the practice team, and re-signed TE Jake Hausman to the practice team. The latter two injuries do not bode well for Rudolph. Ebner has played only 6 matches this season.
