Through four weeks of the NFL season, the New York Giants have proven that something isn't working within their offense, and head coach Brian Daboll demonstrated his frustration during the team's 24-3 home loss against the Seattle Seahawks on Monday Night Football in Week 4 by tossing a tablet.

Based on Ari Meirov's post, this interaction between Daboll and starting quarterback Daniel Jones appeared after he threw a pick-six when the team was on the five-yard line to rookie cornerback Devon Witherspoon.
As you can see, Daboll holds the tablet, shows it to Jones, and promptly tosses it.
This offseason, Jones signed a four-year, $160 million deal. His cap hit this season is just $15.435 million, but that quickly escalates to $47 million, $41.6 million, and $58.6 million over the next three seasons.
To be fair to Jones, this Giants team has seriously deteriorated around him. The offensive line is injured, right tackle Evan Neal is playing terribly, running back Saquon Barkley remains out with an ankle injury, and he doesn't have any receivers worth noting outside of tight end Darren Waller.
Considering his cap hit and the other more significant quarterback contracts, Jones' isn't bad at about $40 million per season.
That said, through four weeks, Jones is completing 68.7% of his passes for 765 yards, two touchdowns, and six interceptions. On the ground, he's added 173 yards and a touchdown.
This season, the Giants are getting outscored 122-46. They scored 31 in Week 2 in a come-from-behind victory against the Arizona Cardinals, but in Weeks 1, 3, and 4, they've managed just 15 combined points.
Over the next few weeks, things don't get any easier for Jones and the Giants as they take on the Miami Dolphins and Buffalo Bills on the road over the next two weeks.
Sitting at 1-3, the Giants could realistically be 1-5 six games into the first season of Jones' $160 million extension.
