With the shorthanded Giants taking on the mighty 49ers on Thursday night, Gio just wants to see Evan Neal and Big Blue’s shaky offensive line do enough to get Daniel Jones out of the game unscathed against Nick Bosa and company.
“How about this: don’t get your ass kicked tonight,” Gio said. “Don’t get your quarterback killed tonight. Get in front of that guy and stop him from killing Daniel Jones.
“The only thing worse than having one backup quarterback have to play the rest of the year is two here in New York. We don’t need any more of that. So please, for the love of God.”
Gio already has to watch Zach Wilson instead of Aaron Rodgers with the Jets this season, and can’t stand the thought of the most hyped football season in New York in years turn into a slog of two backup quarterbacks because Bosa was able to get to Jones too much on Thursday.
So, his one request in what he thinks will be a blowout loss: keep the quarterback healthy.
“This is gonna be a tough one,” Gio said. “We’re probably gonna come in here tomorrow talking about how the Giants got completely chopped up.”
