The New York Giants are an absolute mess. The Giants were blown out on Monday Night Football against Tom Brady and the Buccaneers, 30-10. Daniel Jones had another pathetic stat line, with one touchdown, tossing two interceptions and a 60.5 passing completion percentage. The Giants need a fresh start, hell a complete reboot might be in order. There is only one man who can save the Giants and thats current Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
The Packers and Rodgers have a strained relationship which will likely come to a halt at the end of the season. When Rodgers can become available the Giants need to make him priority No.1 next offseason.
The Giants need to move on from Daniel Jones
The Jones experiment hasn’t worked in New York. To be fair, the Giants have failed to have a qualified head coach the last decade to put them in a position to be a winner. Following the Monday Night game, the Giants fired offensive coordinator Jason Garret. The former Cowboys’ head coach falls on the sword for the inept coaching job Joe Judge has done for the Giants.
Regardless of the poor coaching and leadership in New York, the Giants need to move on from Jones.
The former No. 6 overall pick in 2019 hasn’t faired well under center for the G-Men. In his first two seasons, Jones has had more turnovers (39) than touchdowns (38) and has not led New York to the playoffs.

Jones’ first two seasons, he posted 22 interceptions and 17 lost fumbles. His turnovers are incredibly high and a byproduct as to why the Giants struggle on Sundays.
Another new Offensive Coordinator in New York
Following Monday night’s beatdown from the Bucs, the Giants are in last place in the NFC East sitting 3-7. The playoffs are all but a pipe dream and now the offense is being led by yet another offensive coordinator in Freddie Kitchens.
The former Browns head coach will try and turn the Giants stagnant offense around. This is the second time he has taken over an offense mid-season for an NFL team. The last time was in 2018 when the Browns fired Hue Jackson.
The Giants rank 25th in points per game (18.9) and 23rd in points per game (322.8). You’d have to think Kitchens could come in and make some improvements with the offense.
Aaron Rodgers is the answer to end New York’s woes
The Giants will have until next May to decide whether they want to pick up Jones fifth-year option for 2023. If Rodgers is available, the Giants should decline the option or trade Jones.
Rodgers in New York is exactly what that organization needs. The Giants landing Rodgers would be similar to the Bucs bringing in Brady. The only difference is Brady has a massive history with winning the big game while Rodgers and the Packers continuously fall short.
Aaron Rodgers with legitimate weapons
However, Rodgers would get a fresh start in New York and have legitimate weapons around him. The Giants have a big-bodied wide receiver in Kenny Golladay. Rodgers would be able to toss the rock to Golladay in traffic, he would be a legitimate red zone threat and Golloday would heavily benefit from the veteran quarterback under center.
Another option for Rodgers would be Kadarius Toney. The first-round draft pick has the speed to stretch the field and make highlight reel catches from Rodgers.
In addition to Golladay and Toney, the Giants have Saquon Barkley who is returning this season from a major knee injury. Once fully healthy, the Giants would have a legitimate offense with Rodgers, Barkley, Golladay and Toney. If the Giants can add a tight end to that mix, the Giants are on to something for 2022.
It’s hard to image that Rodgers would come to the Big Apple with Joe Judge as the head coach. The Giants need to tell Judge to take a hike, the current head coach wasn’t ready to lead an NFL team let alone the Giants.
Aaron Rodgers and New York is what the NFL needs
The Giants need Rodgers and he needs them. After a Hall of Fame career in Green Bay, the veteran needs a fresh start to close out his career and the Giants are just the team to do that with.
The Giants have had one winning season in the last eight years. The organization feels lost and in need of a jolt. The Buccaneers were in the same boat and Brady has changed the culture in a short period of time.
In order for Rodgers and the Giants to work, there needs to be the right head coach in place. The Giants will need a tight end for Rodgers to go along with the pieces on offense. Lastly the offensive line needs to be solid to protect the aging Rodgers.
It makes too much sense for the Giants and they need to land Rodgers in 2022. If they don’t, general manager Dave Gettleman needs to be fired, in fairness he should have been already.
