Daniel Jones theory Giants are banking on isn’t what it seems

Published

on

Is “three” the new “two” when it comes to quarterback development?

From the time Dan Marino was named 1984 NFL MVP in his second season until recently, quarterbacks were expected to make their biggest improvements in Year 2. But the delayed Year 3 breakthroughs of Josh Allen and Baker Mayfield have NFL insiders rethinking the timeline.

The Giants are selling the narrative that fits their plan after Daniel Jones regressed in Year 2. The hopeless alternative is that the window has closed after Jones’ 8-18 record, 62.2 percent completion rate, 221 passing yards per game, 35 touchdowns, 39 turnovers and 84.1 quarterback rating over two seasons.

But has the rule of thumb really changed? One former general manager who believes it has suggested any quarterback introduced to new coaches and a new playbook amid the pandemic-restricted practice rules of 2020 — as Jones was — should get a total do-over in 2021.

Since Father Time didn’t stop, The Post analyzed the first three-year trajectories of the 20 quarterbacks drafted with top-12 picks from 2010-18. Removing five who were bona fide stars after two seasons and five whose third year was a total wash because of missed playing time offers this mixed bag of expectations for Jones:

Gold Standard

Josh Allen, Bills: The new beacon of hope for every franchise whose young starter struggled through two years. He completed 56.3 percent of passes and had a 78.2 rating after two seasons before he was united with receiver Stefon Diggs and those numbers jumped to an MVP-caliber 69.2 percent and a 107.2 rating.

Improvements Made

Baker Mayfield, Browns: Their personalities couldn’t be less similar, but Mayfield is the best comparison for Jones because he showed promise as a rookie, experienced a coaching change and took steps backwards in his turnover-prone second season. He cut his interceptions from 21 to eight in his third season while improving his completion percentage and maintaining his yardage and touchdown output.

Jared Goff, Rams: His big jump from Year 1 to Year 2 was backed by an incremental improvement in Year 3, when he threw for 293 yards per game, made a second straight Pro Bowl and led the Rams to the Super Bowl. It’s hard to explain the downward spiral and trade to the Lions that followed this March.

Ryan Tannehill, Dolphins: His third season with the Dolphins (66.4 percent completions, 27 touchdowns, 12 interceptions) was the best of his six in Miami before he was traded to the Titans in 2019. There was a direct correlation to improved — but still below-par — pass protection.

No Clarity Gained

Sam Bradford, Rams: Followed up an Offensive Rookie of the Year season with a disastrous 1-9 season. Bradford’s third season resulted in a career-high 21 touchdown passes and then-best 82.6 rating — still not convincing enough.

Blake Bortles, Jaguars: Threw 35 touchdown passes in Year 2 and was a caretaker for Super Bowl contender in Year 4. But Year 3 revealed his true identity: Not enough big plays, careless turnovers and too much losing. The Jaguars ignored signs and offered a $54 million extension.

Jameis Winston, Buccaneers: He was a Pro Bowler as a rookie, won nine games as his second act and had a strange Year 3, when a career-best 92.2 passer rating was offset by a 3-10 record. It has all been downhill since then, including a 30-interception season before the Bucs gave up, allowing Winston to sign with the Saints in 2020.

Alarm Bells

Marcus Mariota, Titans: One of two quarterbacks listed here who had more interceptions than touchdowns in Year 3. As the league adjusted to his dual-threat capability, Mariota’s passer rating plummeted from 93.8 over two seasons to 79.3 and he held back a good team.

Panthers
Sam Darnold

Mitchell Trubisky, Bears: After a 2018 Pro Bowl selection, numbers regressed across the board. Ultimate reminder that teams finally are forced to reveal true feelings in an uncertain situation when staring at a contract option before Year 4. Support for Trubisky suddenly dried up and competition (Nick Foles) arrived.

Sam Darnold, Jets: He went 2-10, with more interceptions (11) than touchdowns (9), and failed to make more than 13 starts for the third straight injury-plagued season. But the Panthers blamed the Jets’ coaching and poor roster because they traded for Darnold in April to be their starter.

Summary: Unless Allen and Mayfield are the very beginning of a new trend, their Year 3 breakthroughs present as outliers. Recent MVPs Patrick Mahomes and Lamar Jackson suggest Year 2 is still the time for improvement.

The Giants’ best-case scenario is Jones’ Year 2 in coordinator Jason Garrett’s offense takes the place of his Year 2 in the NFL.

Actress Anne Heche Suffers Severe Burns After Crashing Car Into Los Angeles Home

Published

on

Actress Anne Heche, known for her roles in such films as Donnie Brasco, Volcano and I Know What You Did Last Summer, was involved in a fiery car crash in the Mar Vista area of Los Angeles on Friday.

According to TMZ, Heche was driving a blue Mini Cooper and had first crashed into the garage of an apartment complex. Residents of the apartment complex tried to get her out of the vehicle but she backed up and sped off.

Footage of Heche speeding down the streets of her neighborhood had been obtained by TMZ as well as her initial encounter at the apartment complex.

In the first clip, you can hear her car crash towards the end. It has been reported that the actress crashed into someone’s home, causing her vehicle and the house to erupt into flames. Heche suffered severe burns and was resisting being taken away in a stretcher. You can also view footage of this via the TMZ article.

It has not been confirmed whether alcohol has been involved in the incident since her condition prevents doctors from performing any tests to determine if she was driving under the influence. She is currently intubated in the hospital but expected to live.

These are the vulgar license-plate requests the DMV has rejected

Published

on

Stay CL4SSY, New York!

The state Department of Motor Vehicles nixed 3,752 requests for vanity license plates in the last three years because it deemed them too raunchy, radical or simply ridiculous.

New York’s personalized plates go for $60 initially, and then $31.25 annually for renewal. You can get any plate as long as no one else has it and it’s not offensive.

Odds are a request for a plate that marks a wedding anniversary or shows your allegiance to a team — like METS86 — will pass muster with the DMV gatekeepers.

Vulgarity won’t get you to first base.

So plates with the phrase LFGM — the acronym for Pete Alonso’s “Let’s F–king Go Mets” rallying cry — did not make the cut.

And you won’t see anyone driving around with the custom plates MILFDAD, AS5M4N and WLHUNG.

Crude meanings such as “MILFDAD” are unacceptable by the DMV.

The DMV also shot down such dark requests as DEADGIRL, GENOC1DE, S8TAN, DETONATE and MURDERM3.

Getting political is a dead end too — FJOEBIDN, FDTRUMP and CNNLIES were nixed.

LUDEDUDE, NARCO, GOT METH and BLUNT also went up in smoke.

Staten Island attorney Bill Dertinger said his blue 1995 Jaguar SJS was tagged with ESQLTD after his company and his 2014 Porsche had the plate GHOSTGTS because the sleek sportscar was white.

“The plates can make you stand out — which can be a curse or a blessing,” the 54-year-old Dertinger said. “Make sure you don’t cut anybody off.”

There must be a New York Jets fan playing referee at the DMV because a request for the seemingly innocent plate GASE was sidelined. Ex-Jets head coach Adam Gase had an offensive 9-23 win-loss record during his forgettable two-year tenure.

The DMV would not reveal who gives the final yea or nay.

“The DMV reviews all custom license plate requests and works hard to ensure that any combinations that may be considered objectionable are rejected,” said agency spokesman Tim O’Brien.

“GLOCKS” referring to guns is not accepted by the DMV.

He said guidelines on what plate combinations are restricted can be found on the DMV website: https://dmv.ny.gov/learn-about-personalized-plates. Approximately 50,000 personalized and custom plates are sold per year, O’Brien said.
