Recommended Posts

We couldn't possibly be this lucky, sounds like a set up...

But if you force Jones out there too earlier, with a fan base that already hates the pick, it could be a disaster.

 

crazy thing is I think the Giants are going to be better than people think.

 

Considering that many think Giants will be competing with Washington for #1 pick that is not too hard.

He’s reportedly outplayed Eli thus far (from media observations). Pat Shurmer threw this out there today:

 

 

i still think it’s way too early but that’s a heck of a statement for the HC to make considering Gettleman thought he might sit 3 years 

 

...MORE appropriately, Daniel Jones could face the Bills in week 2.....Mr. Edmunds in in charge of the "welcoming committee"...............

Eli sucks but I think I’d rather face a rookie in his 2nd game (especially this one). 

This 1000%!

I don't think it's out of the question. Top ten QB's don't tend to play the backup role for long. He will be starting at some point in the season, probably sooner rather than later. JMO.

Or Eli is so bad in preseason & camp he retires rather than going out & embarrassing himself anymore.  

Never stopped him before...

LOL, no chance this guy is starting week unless Eli is injured.

Don't underestimate the power of a GM's ego. Gettleman may pressure Shurmur into trying to prove him right. Not saying it makes any football sense at all

Gentleman is the one who has been drafting as though he is going all in on Manning these past 2 years.

Yep. Imo, Giants should have gotten one of the 2018 QBs. But this early chatter out of their camp regarding Jones is mildly amusing.

Seriously people? This is typical player and coach speak. Every backup always says the goal is to be as ready as if they were starting, and every coach says every backup needs to prepare as if they were starting. 

 

Talk about making mountains from molehills.

This is the least interesting game on the schedule.

Yes but it makes for some interesting trivia: Has any team ever opened a season playing two consecutive ROAD games in the same stadium?

 

Will the Bills just leave their equipment in the visiting locker room throughout the week?

The Giants should start Jones.  I wish the Bills named Allen the starter at the start of training camp.  Why tread water when you can give your franchise QB valuable experience and reps in practice?

They may be reaching, but they didn’t say he won it. I think the story is more that he’s in the mix to win it with how he’s performed so far (looks good and looks better than Eli - low bar, I know)

 

previously, it appeared Eli was the unquestioned starter

Yeah I got that part... yet the obvious remains. This shouldn't even be a conversation without pads even put on the players... This is even worse than Peterman being a Hall of Fame training camp player...

If the NYG end up starting Jones early-on in the season the entire season could go up in flames prematurely, though that may already be the inevitable result of Gettleman's moves both this year and last year. Passing on Darnold/Allen for Barkley was insane. I wouldn't be surprised to see Gettleman and Shurmer fired at the end of the season. Then the new GM can draft another QB for the Giants next year...

 

For once it looks like the Bills are gonna luck out in this madness known as the NFL Draft.

It goes back to the Shurmur comment which i think  was odd - that Jones is “on track to be able to play  week 1” - what does that even mean in June? Isn’t everyone on track for that unless they have a serious injury?

Anybody seen Giants game?

 

From statline it seems that he had another solid game. I know it will probably doesn't mean that he will start against us already but who knows.

 

I am rooting for the kid since he got so much hate during draft.

There were even a few seasons they’d have been better trotting our old Archie over who they had.

I know Eli has 2 rings and is a Giants legend. But you are gonna let a guy keep starting well after he’s a good player? He’s been terrible for the Giants for basically the past 3 seasons, yet he’s still the starter based on his Super bowls. 

 

I wouldnt be surprised to see him finally lose his starting job. 

 

He gets extra credit for the opponent in those glorious SBs.

 

I will forever be thankful. He stays as looooooong as he'd like.
