Giants co-owner John Mara said in January that his organization did everything it could to screw up the quarterback. Daniel Jones and former Giants quarterback Eli Manning recently voiced a similar sentiment, but Jones is unwilling to spend a lot of time looking outside of himself for reasons why he hasn’t developed the way the team hoped over the last three seasons.

In an interview with Paul Schwartz New York PostJones admitted that while dealing with coaching changes and staffing mistakes, “doesn’t make it easierand also said that it would be a “mistake” to do anything other than take responsibility for the way he plays. He called comparing his circumstances to others a “recipe for disaster” that he can’t afford to follow next season.

“Everyone will have their own path, everyone will have a different situation,” Jones said. “Your job is to make it work and sort out your own situation. Things that I cannot control, you waste energy, effort and time worrying about them. I think there are many advantages in my situation and I have learned a lot in football, seen it through different eyes and heard different coaches, their different philosophies, I think it could be, it depends on how you look at it, but it can be positive and it will help you grow.”

Among other things, Jones has no control over how the Giants approach post-season contract negotiations. A good game will open the door to a longer stay with the team, and Jones said he would like to be successful with the Giants, but said he tries not to think about his contract because he “doesn’t think it helps you play better.” ”

Finding what that improvement creates will be vital for Jones this year to have a clear future as a starting quarterback with the Giants or anyone else.
