When the New York Giants offensive line heard this could be a make-or-break season for Daniel Jones, it apparently took those comments literally.

Jones played well enough in limited work Thursday night against the New England Patriots, going 6-of-10 for 69 yards.

Based on the state of his pass-blocking, though, the fourth-year quarterback might be fortunate to make it to Week 8.

Not going to lie, braced myself a bit there while watching Daniel Jones have a back shoved into his knees. Risky there. <a href="https://t.co/UUQvZjalez">pic.twitter.com/UUQvZjalez</a>

daniel jones has taken 3 huge hits in one quarter which is not ideal

TheGiantsWire @TheGiantsWire

Daniel Jones is taking entirely too many hits.

Paul Schwartz @NYPost_Schwartz

Daniel Jones was under pressure throughout his second series on offense.

Michael Hurley @michaelFhurley

The New York Giants are not at all hesitant to put Daniel Jones out on the train tracks.

Jones was culpable to some extent, though, since he still seems to struggle with understanding how quickly he needs to make reads in the pocket.

Daniel Jones will be picking up that last pressure in just a few minutes.

JP Acosta @acosta32_jp

Also Daniel Jones has gotta start managing the pressure better

Marcus Mosher @Marcus_Mosher

Daniel Jones still doesn't have any feel for pressure, huh?

And while preseason games mean little in the grand scheme of things, nothing from Thursday night will change anybody's opinion of the 25-year-old.

Player Props Are Rigged @HurtSteelersFan

Daniel Jones really bout to be riding someone bench like trubisky next year. Crazy how many qbs in the top 15 picks the past like 5 years have been awful products

dalton @cincyhatedalton

Brain Hoyer low key better than Daniel Jones bro 😭

the most basic name @whydouhitsohard

Can we all agree Daniel Jones will never be good? Even Eli showed flashes. This man shows literally nothing.

The writing was on the wall when the Giants declined Jones' fifth-year option for 2023. He's almost assuredly not the long-term solution under center, and it won't be surprising if Tyrod Taylor replaces him at some point in the season ahead.
