I'm saying it now: Start Daniel Jones Week 1

90.Cal : 8/8/2019 8:43 pm
Mr. Shurmur, don't make the same mistake Hue Jackson made a year ago. Put the kid in and never look back!

Yep
Big diference between a HOF QB named Eli Manning and  
PatersonPlank : 8/8/2019 8:46 pm : link
Tyrod Taylor.
Itís what should happen  
Ned In Atlanta : 8/8/2019 8:47 pm : link
But paying Eli $23 million and Maras sentimental feelings toward him mean itís highly unlikely
This has nothing to do with tonight  
Big Rick in FL : 8/8/2019 8:47 pm : link
But I think he should start also. No chance we are a SB team with Eli. Most likely aren't a playoff team. So really no reason to start Eli. Let the kid get his reps and take his lumps.
Relax..  
prdave73 : 8/8/2019 8:48 pm : link
Letís wait and see how he does overall in the preseason. But yea he does look good:)

arcarsenal : 8/8/2019 8:49 pm : link
It's fine if Eli starts - there should just be a very short hook.

If the team starts 0-2 or 1-3 and the offense isn't humming, that's where you make the switch.

Not when we're 2-7 and it's all out of reach already.

arcarsenal : 8/8/2019 8:50 pm : link
We just need to be careful with the sample sizes here. Eli literally played 3 plays. Jones played one series.

Daniel looked incredible - couldn't ask for more than that. But I don't want to get TOO far ahead here.
He looked great, but if we're now starting him  
ChaChing : 8/8/2019 8:54 pm : link
off 1 preseason drive? There's a shitload of preseason left, 3 games...and he is a rookie

Neither is he likely to start week 1, nor is he likely 'ready to go' just because of 1 good drive

He might be one of the lucky few to transition easily, but that's a bit nuts!

Been my mantra since we drafted Jones.

Having Barkley would help Jones immensely.
Iíd imagine that it would help out

Shurmur will start whoever he thinks gives the team the best chance to win week 1.
That was not even close

Whoops, wrong thread for that. That was supposed to be about the "fumble" by Tanney in the game day thread.

No. Eli will start Week 1.

But if the season goes south early, put in Jones & not look back.

Next week he will throw an INT and Gettleman will be a stupid POS
I would be shocked if Eli isn't under center  
St. Jimmy : 8/8/2019 9:47 pm : link
week one.
Ah...  
Giant John : 8/8/2019 10:00 pm : link
No. Only way that happens is if Eli gets hurt. And Iím a fan of Jones too.
No.  
Dave in Hoboken : 8/8/2019 10:02 pm : link
Just be happy that our top drafted rookie looked very good. Lord knows if he stunk tonight, everyone would be shitting on him.
Starting Jones now is the absolute WORST coaching decision..  
EricJ : 8/8/2019 10:11 pm : link
and there is no chance that Jones will start. We have not seen the guy play in a meaningful game, against a pass rush, or in any stressful situation.

Shit.. how many possessions did he play so far? And some of you want him to start already?

This place has gotten unhinged..
I don't think Jones can't win the job  
j_rud : 8/8/2019 10:24 pm : link
But with a few more showings like that he might shorten the leash Eli will get.
*dont think Jones can win the job  
j_rud : 8/8/2019 10:25 pm : link

The least is short....Eli is really going to have to step up his play.  
Zeke's Alibi : 8/8/2019 10:30 pm : link

I think the leash should short no matter what.  
St. Jimmy : 8/8/2019 10:33 pm : link
They are kidding themselves if they think this season is about winning now. Jones is the future: good or bad. They need to start that this year. They need to go deep in the playoffs to justify Jones sitting on the bench all year.

Next week he'll be like, 3-11 with an INT, and this place will be back to - why was he drafted? Gettleman sucks. Darnold was the man....book it

FMIC, I'm not sure how entrepreneurial you are but how many business ideas you think can be developed from this thread alone? Eric you may not need fundraisers with this!

Jones is the real deal. Eli will have to start strong or he is done.

Jets defense during the Jones drive was half starters and half second stringers.
Jones vs. "2nd string"  
AcesUp : 8/8/2019 11:25 pm : link
The WRs weren't really separating, so if that was the case, it's an indictment on the WRs and not Jones. He threw the ball with accuracy and timing. He was perfect on that short drive against tight coverage regardless of what "string" was playing.

Thatís a stretch. Many might think it, doesnít mean itís true.

Torrag : 8/9/2019 12:03 am : link
Luckily for the rest of us Shurmur isn't saying it. One drive vs the opponents seconds isn't going to make that happen.

Great start for the young man. Looking forward to watching him continue to develop and the rest of the NFL loudmouths eat crow...when he's ready.
I think Jones will be the starter before Halloween.  
Mr. Bungle : 8/9/2019 12:04 am : link
I think the Giants want to make this move as soon as possible, open up the offense, and get these young guys fired up.

Week 1 is a stretch. Eli will get his last starts. But he won't get many. Jones will be the starter BEFORE the season slips away, not after it does.
One preseason  
Beer Man : 8/9/2019 3:40 am : link
series, and we are ready to kick a two time SB champion (and face of the franchise for the last 15 years) to the curb? Really?
Ummm, no  
Rong5611 : 8/9/2019 5:45 am : link
Jones looked great. I was at the game, that drive was electric. He was very accurate. He had great poise. Crowd loved it.

One preseason series and we should start him? I don't think so.

Eli starts the season and we'll take it from there. If he wins, he continues to play. That's how it has to be, for now.

itís a matter of when not if. Not saying Jones will start week one but it will likely be before the end of the season and bases on the last couple of years possibly by Halloween when the team is out of contention.

The best player plays at every position. When he believes Jones is better, he will play.

Yep
Even Manning didn't start week 1. Let's revisit this thought in October.
Daniel Jones is better than Eli at this point.  
90.Cal : 8/9/2019 10:34 am : link
Face the facts now. The entire team rallies around Daniel! Let him go through the fire from day 1. Who cares what Eli makes this year, this is his final year and he and LT are the 2 greatest Giants of all time. Give him his money and say farewell in the winter or spring. Eli is a HOF based on those 2 superbowl runs... but he is far, far, far away from that player he once was. And one of those SBs is over a decade and the 2nd is approaching a decade... that's a long time since we won a playoff game guys! Face the facts... time to move on... Daniel Jones is the real deal. Dont be scared. Play the kid! Shurmur dont over think it! The best player plays and Daniel is better!
There is nothing
