"That division is not going to be terrible forever" - Colin Cowherd pressures Giants to sign 2-time Super Bowl-winning QB

Could the New York Giants be a good fit for San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo?

The New York Giants will give it another go with Daniel Jones at the quarterback position next season. Things might finally work out for him with a new head coach and a healthy Saquon Barkley to support him in the backfield. But one can’t help but wonder if Jones would benefit from a little quarterback competition.

A two-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback (those rings were won in a backup role with the New England Patriots), Jimmy Garoppolo is still being dangled out for trade by the San Francisco 49ers.

Colin Cowherd, sports analyst and host of The Herd with Colin Cowherd, suggested that the New York-based side could be the perfect fit for Garoppolo.

"And I look at Garoppolo. And I think to myself, boy, the New York Giants make a lot of sense here. You know, inside that building, that new staff isn't loyal to him. The Mara family is not even loyal. They just want one more year.
"You're not paying Daniel yet. That division is not going to be terrible forever. I think I would bring Garoppolo in if Daniel doesn't work. By the way, if he can't handle the Garoppolo pressure, he's not the guy anyway. I think the Giants work."

It’s true, the NFC East has been so bad for the past few years that, at times, it seemed like it was a fight NOT to win the division title. In 2020, the Washington Football Team won the division with a deplorable 7-9 record. Of course, that was thanks in large part to an injury that sidelined Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott.

New York Giants may soon be the only poor team in the NFC East if something doesn't change

The Cowboys are the team to beat as long as their roster can stay healthy. The Philadelphia Eagles, with young, talented quarterback Jalen Hurts to lead them, are definitely on the up. Even though it’s probably not true, the Washington Commanders believe they have their quarterback of the future in Carson Wentz.

Legacy is timeless. Classic blue uniforms are BACK 🔥

The Giants are one of the most storied franchises in the league with one of the most loyal fanbases. It’s been far too long since they’ve been relevant, though. Garoppolo could be the boost they need to return to winning ways and potentially nab a playoff spot.
