Colin Cowherd: “Brawls are breaking out at Giants training camp involving players and coaches… This doesn’t happen very often with a star quarterback. When you lack leadership you have workplace meltdowns. When you have a star quarterback the offense usually controls practice, the bad spurts are short, the good spurts are long, and the star quarterback has that authority where you don’t get into that stuff when you have a star quarterback very often. When you don’t have a star quarterback and you have a bad quarterback you have to repeat stuff, coaches get snarkier, coaches and players get impatient… You can’t fool professional athletes. You ask veteran players ‘how many practices does it take before you know a guy can play?’ They’re always like ‘two practices.’ Daniel Jones has been there a few years now and he’s not very good, and you can’t fool the players. They’re getting frustrated, the offense is getting manhandled, the Giants have a pretty good defensive front, and this is what happens. It spirals out of control. You don’t have a star player at the most important position and everybody knows it. My crazy idea could solve some of this. Bring in Jimmy Garoopolo. ‘Colin, we don’t have cap space!’ Figure it out, the Rams always do. Jimmy Garoppolo has been to Super Bowls, all the players know it. Jimmy Garoppolo has won 70% of his starts, he just beat Aaron Rodgers at Lambeau. Is Jimmy Garoppolo Josh Allen? No, he’s not but he wins a lot of football games and a lot of big football games that the Giants watch on TV. It’s August 9th and they’re already melting down, and I don’t believe this would be happening if Joe Burrow, Justin Herbert, or Patrick Mahomes were quarterbacks for the New York Giants. When you’re lacking leadership it becomes finger pointing. If you get the quarterback right it smooths out practice, it smooths out arguments, it shortens up crisis, and everything is easier, and right now you have coaches and players fighting because there is no deference, there is no star, the ugly moments in practice last longer, and this idea that Daniel Jones is suddenly going to become an accurate thrower of the football I don’t buy.” (Full Segment Above)
