The Joe Judge experiment has failed quarterback Daniel Jones. You can say it failed the other players on the roster, as well.

But the star players have been impacted the most. Jones, the former Top 10 draft pick by the New York Giants, has regressed this season.

Jones had his worst season in his young career this past season. The two years under Judge, the signal-caller did not throw for more than 3,000 yards in a season.

He went 4-7 as a starter in 2021. The former No. 6 overall draft pick went 232 of 361 yards for 2,428 yards on the season.

He also had 10 touchdown passes and seven interceptions.

The 2021 numbers were 500-yards fewer than his first campaign under Judge. In 2020, he had thrown for 2,943 yards.

Before being shut down with a neck injury, which caused him to miss the final five weeks of the season, he had just one game, where he threw for more than 300 yards in a game. In a Week 4 game against the New Orleans Saints, he threw for a season-high 402 yards.

If you take that game out of the equation, his season-high would have been 267 yards. He had thrown for the aforementioned 267 yards in the season-opener against the Denver Broncos.

In the final seven games of the season, he could not throw for more than 242 yards in a game. He had the 242 yards in a loss to the Los Angeles Rams on October 17th.

It was just a mess under Judge this season for Jones. Not only did he have to deal with horrible play-calling, he also had to deal with two offensive coordinators. The Giants fired their former offensive coordinator Jason Garrett one day after their 30-10 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on November 22nd.

Then, Freddie Kitchens took over on an interim basis to finish the season. In Jones’ lone game with Kitchens as an offensive coordinator before being shut down, he had 202 yards in a win over the Philadelphia Eagles at MetLife Stadium on November 28th.
