During Monday night’s game against the Seattle Seahawks, New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones threw a costly red zone interception that was returned 97 yards for a touchdown in the other direction, and it was clear that head coach Brian Daboll was not happy about it.
As Daniel Jones walked to the sideline after the play, Brian Daboll met him and was visibly angry with his quarterback. And during his postgame press conference, he explained the interaction a little bit.
“I was trying to show him — kind of see what he thought and then kind of tell him what I saw,” Daboll told reporters after the game according to Pro Football Talk.
Daboll was then asked what specifically he would have wanted Jones to do on that play, but he declined to get into the specifics.
“Yeah, I’m not gonna get into the particulars of it,” Daboll said. “Just, we didn’t get the job done.”
Whatever it was that Daboll wanted Jones to do instead – like, perhaps throw it to tight end Darren Waller who was wide open in the end zone – it’s clear that throwing a back-breaking pick six was probably not part of the plan.
We’ll have to see if Jones can bounce back from the mistake next week.
