The New York Giants couldn’t build upon the momentum from their comeback win over the Arizona Cardinals, falling to the San Francisco 49ers to get their record to 1-2.
Then, they looked even worse when they hosted the Seattle Seahawks for another primetime loss at home.
That’s why Stephen A. Smith believes this season is a wrap for them already, as he just doesn’t see them recovering from this 1-3 record, via “First Take.”

Daniel Jones is now officially 1-12 in primetime games in his career, and Smith believes he took a massive step backward after getting paid.
He pointed out the fact that he had the best interception percentage in the league last season, having just five picks in 16 games.
This season, however, he’s tied with Jimmy Garoppolo for the most passes picked off in the league.
Smith states that Jones forgot how to play and the things that got him paid that big money as soon as he ‘”got the bag,” and he called the team a big mess.
Truth be told, as harsh as Smith’s criticism may sound, he’s right on the mark this time.
The Giants have scored 0, 31, 12, and 3 points this season.
Of course, two of those games have come against elite defenses like the Dallas Cowboys and 49ers, but that’s still no excuse.
They’re paying $40 million a year to their quarterback and to have three or fewer points in half of their games is simply unacceptable.
It’s still early in the season, but coming back from this will be almost impossible.NEXT: Analyst Has 1 Concern About Christian McCaffrey This Season
