Daniel Jones has been named Giants starting QB
— New York Giants (@Giants) September 17, 2019
Everybody's most overrated draft pick (because he was drafted ahead of Haskins) is officially replacing everyone's favorite Patriot killer (or is that Nick Foles??) Eli Manning as starting QB for the Giants.
“Eli and I spoke this morning,” Shurmur said. “I told him that we are making a change and going with Daniel as the starter. I also talked to Daniel. Eli was obviously disappointed, as you would expect, but he said he would be what he has always been, a good teammate, and continue to prepare to help this team win games. Daniel understands the challenge at hand, and he will be ready to play on Sunday.”
Jones was outstanding in the preseason. In four games, he completed 29 of 34 passes (85.3%) for 416 yards, two touchdowns, no interceptions and a glittering 137.2 rating.
I think Daniel Jones is about to find out that NFL preseason defenses and NFL regular season defenses aren't quite the same thing.
