Cris Collinsworth’s Praise For New York Giants QB Daniel Jones Couldn’t Have Come At A Worse Time Last Night

I don’t know about you, but in my humble opinion, there’s just nothing better than watching sports.

There’s something about the togetherness of it all and the “emotional buy-in” of cheering for your favorite team that only sports can really offer. Sometimes it’s the best feeling in the world to be a sports fan, but then you have nights like last night, and seeing your team get dismantled can be pretty brutal.

New York Giants fans can’t be happy with their team’s performance on Sunday Night Football. The New York team got beat at home by the Dallas Cowboys 40 to nothing. Some people have made a joke that they got beat so bad, it finished with a tennis score (40-Love).

Amidst the historically bad showing by the Giants, their young quarterback Daniel Jones stayed out there and kept taking hit after hit. Many were confused as to why he was still out there at one point, considering the game was pretty much out of hand.

However, one man that appreciated Jones’ stick-to-it-iveness was NBC announcer Cris Collinsworth. While the Cowboys were shutting out the Giants in the fourth quarter, Daniel Jones remained out on the field, and the always charismatic Collinsworth had a theory as to why.

Cris thought that Jones was staying out there to prove his toughness, and said that he was probably showcasing this kind of mindset:

“‘I don’t care how many times I get hit. I’m your quarterback. I’m going to stand in there, I’m gonna keep running, I’m going to keep playing out here.’

He’ll gain a lot of respect out of this game tonight. Tough night to throw the football for both teams, no question about it, with the conditions and the rain. It’s a bit of a statement, I think, by Daniel Jones, like ‘I’m not going anywhere.'”

And that’s great and all, but Collinsworth couldn’t even finish his thought before Jones got brutally driven into the turf by a Dallas Cowboys’ pass rusher.

Actually, when Cris was saying “I’m not going anywhere,” Daniel Jones was making his way to the ground for probably the 50th sack of the night.

It all came off as hilarious, and just another reason why I love sports. You never know when an unintentionally funny moment is going to happen like this one.
