Are Giants the biggest sleeper this season? ESPN NFL analyst sets off heated debate

Dominique Foxworth foresees good things for the New York Giants.

The ESPN NFL analyst picked the team as the biggest sleeper for the 2022 season.

Per ESPN:

“Daniel Jones is not terrible, is the thing. We talk about Daniel Jones like he’s awful … if you watch Daniel Jones play, he’s a good player, a dual threat quarterback.”

Defending a pick by calling the quarterback “not terrible,” is not all that encouraging, but Foxworth offers a glimpse of hope for Giants fans.

And even if Jones ends up being terrible, or is unable to play, the Giants have a backup in Tyrod Taylor.

Here’s what NJ Advance Media’s Darryl Slater has to say about the quarterback:

Taylor has a reputation has an elusive, scrambling quarterback. He does a really nice job of keeping plays alive when they break down — either due to pressure in the pocket or coverage down the field. But he doesn’t always just take off and run. (Granted, there is no true pass rushing allowed in camp, since quarterbacks can’t be hit.) Taylor sticks with plays — and throws a heck of a deep ball.

Taylor’s deep-ball arm strength — and he’s made a few impressive throws so far, including some that went for long gains — might surprise Giants fans who have attended camp practices. But that’s surely one of the reasons why Daboll and Schoen liked him so much.

The Giants will open up the 2022 season on September 11th against the Tennessee Titans at Nissan Stadium in Nashville, Tennessee.
