QB Daniel Jones -- August 6, 2019

Q: What is your feeling going into Thursday night? Excited? Nervous? What?
A: I知 excited. I think it値l be a whole lot of fun to just run out there for the first time and kind of be part of the scene, be part of an NFL football game. So, I知 excited, I知 looking forward to getting out there.

Q: Do you have any sense at all from the coaches how much and when you will play?
A: I知 not really sure. I think we値l all play some, but as far as the plan, I知 not sure.

Q: What are you expecting to be different once you get into game action?
A: Well, the defense will be different, for one. Going against different looks will be a big thing. I expect it値l be faster to some extent, just a live game, but I知 excited just to be back playing football again.

Q: Do you feel that you池e as equipped as you could be to play in this first preseason game?
A: Yes, I think so. I think as a group on offense, I think we致e had a good last couple weeks. I think as a unit, we池e ready for it. So, like I said, it値l be different, it値l be different looks, it値l be maybe a little faster, but I think we池e in a good spot as a group, and I feel prepared for Thursday night.

Q: What have you heard and seen about Gregg Williams defense? Obviously, there痴 a reputation謡hat are your impressions of what they do?
A: Well, I think they play really hard. Something you notice is how aggressive they are and how hard they play, but it値l be different from what we致e seen in practice in terms of their just kind of base looks, their base coverages and pressures. All that will be different, so I致e just been trying to familiarize myself with those different looks and how they attack an offense. I致e been trying to do that these past couple days, trying to prepare as best I can.

Q: Are you looking forward to that first hit, or would you rather not?
A: Yes, I think a little bit. I think you kind of look forward to擁t kind of gets you going, kind of back in the live action football. It値l be exciting.

Q: It doesn稚 need to be too big though?
A: Yes, it doesn稚 need to be too big. No, that痴 part of the game, I知 looking forward to getting in there.

Q: Who痴 coming, family or friends (inaudible)?
A: I致e got some family members coming out, my immediate family and some cousins. It値l be fun, I知 looking forward to it.

Q: Daniel, regardless of the number of snaps that you play, when the night痴 over and you look back and say, 的 got this done, what is that list you that you want to accomplish in your first preseason game?
A: I think first and foremost it痴 to score points, move the offense down the field and score points. So, I think that痴 always the goal, but in that, it痴 executing consistently, keeping the ball moving forward, not hurting ourselves, and executing what we have on offense. So, doing that, taking care of the ball, I think all those things, but if we池e scoring points, if we池e moving the ball, I think we値l feel good about what we did.

Q: Daniel, you池e two days away from your first NFL action. What has Eli said to you about what to expect?
A: I think right now just focusing on the preparation of it and making sure that I知 as prepared as I can possibly be. I think, like I said, we致e had a good last couple weeks of practice, but now the preparation kind of shifts more specifically to the Jets and just trying to prepare for that, so that when I do get out there Thursday night, I知 ready to go.

Q: Will you take a moment to sort of walk around the field to kind of say, 典his is pretty cool?
A: Yes, I think I will. First time walking out there, whether that痴 warm-ups or before the game, I think I will take a moment and look around, and I知 excited for that.

Q: What does it mean to kind of get to that spot, once your whole life (inaudible)?
A: I think that it値l be a short moment, but for the most part, I think I致e realized曜ust being here you realize that a little bit, and when we get out there Thursday night, I値l have a moment to do that, but you realize you池e playing a game pretty shortly, so I don稚 know if you have a whole lot of time to do that.

Q: What are you expecting from MetLife Stadium? You haven稚 really been there and that kind of environment.
A: I haven稚. I haven稚 stepped on the field yet, so I think just getting in there and looking around will be cool. Hopefully the fans will be excited to be there, and hopefully we can play well.

Q: What areas did you grow in the most so far in camp?
A: I think a lot of it has to do with understanding what the defense is trying to do to you, and understanding whether that痴 in protections, or kind of your progressions in the pass game. I think all that stuff, understanding what the defense is trying to do to you and recognizing that as quickly as you can so you can get in and out of your protections and get into your reads quickly.

Q: Is it slowing down for you a little bit since day one?
A: Yes, I think it has. I致e said it痴 still pretty early on in my progression悠 realize that, I realize there痴 still a lot to learn, but I do feel like it痴 slowed down. I致e gotten better at recognizing a lot of different things.

Q: Is there a fine line between trying to make an impression trying to make a throw and throwing an interception?
A: I think so, yes. I think certainly you want to be aggressive, you want to take advantage of the opportunities they give us, but I think part of playing quarterback, part of being the decision maker is understanding when those chances aren稚 there. So, I think coaches will be looking for that as well, I think that痴 important to remember in an opportunity like this.

Q: How valuable do you think it will be to get the opportunity to play behind the ones a little bit, the starting offensive line and the starting receivers out there?
A: I think it値l be valuable, I think熔ver these last few weeks, I think we致e built chemistry kind of across the board with everyone, whether you池e throwing in routes or seven-on, or whatever it is. So, I知 confident in all the guys, and I think it値l be good.

Q: Daniel, as you get closer to game time, what kind of emotions are going on inside? Are you excited? Are you nervous? Are you intense about it?
A: I think I値l be excited, first and foremost. Just to get out there and put on the uniform and run around on the field, I think, will be exciting. Just trying to focus and kind of lock in on what we have to do as an offense or what the game plan is, but just trying to get focused.
Hope he's getting used to
