Daniel Jones showed so much promise his rookie season, but the thorn in his side was turnovers. Way too many turnovers.
Quarterback coach Jerry Schuplinski is on a mission to change that.
“The last thing we want is the ball on the ground,” Schuplinski said. “Ball security is huge to coach Judge, he preaches security all the time. Jason (offensive coordinator Jason Garrett) preaches that you can’t score if you don’t have the ball. You can’t win games turning the ball over.”
Schuplinski spoke to the media for the first time via Zoom today and talked about the spring drills that didn’t happen because of the pandemic.
“Yea, it’s been a challenge,” he added. “But I think you have to approach it, kind of like I said before, part of ball security is understanding what you’re looking at on the other side of the ball, understanding reads, understanding pressure.”
The problem with Jones wasn’t so much interceptions, but putting the ball on the ground. His 18 fumbles (11 lost) was the highest in the NFL. Something that can’t happen this season.
“Daniel understands want we want from him,” Schuplinski said. “We’re harping on the little things, the basics. We expect major improvement.”
Hey, this new coaching staff won’t tolerate anything else.
