Should Jones have played more ?

Bluesbreaker : 8/9/2019 12:55 am
I was glad they started Eli I felt like it gave the
offensive line get warmed up a bit before bringing in
Jones . When he did come in to me the feel of the game
changed the Offensive line was like a wall every time
he dropped back and he was picture perfect .
I just thought he would have played a bit more .
Or maybe they did not want to extend the starters
anymore than what they did .
I think he would have

gotten another series or two if not for the storm delay. Would have liked to see more but we'll definitely see more in the next couple games, and he might start the 4th game.
If it wasn't for the delay

not after the rain break. canít send him out cold with a ? cold team

from a prolonged break like that. I thought the HC made a great decision. Not sure why he played Taney so long though. i expect getting him ready to be #2 in the season.

Agree. Thought it was the right decision for tonight. Next time may be different.
Yeah, he definitely should have gotten

2 more series
I wanted to see more of Jones.  
BlueLou'sBack : 8/9/2019 1:42 am : link
It's so clear neither Tanney not Lauletta are legit NFL QBs...
I don't think its a big deal  
.McL. : 8/9/2019 4:12 am : link
Just give him more work next week.
He was coming out, if there was no delay  
George from PA : 8/9/2019 6:13 am : link
But now, he was perfect for at least this game and the media can fawn over him.....
Like how they did it  
mattnyg05 : 8/9/2019 6:25 am : link
Leave on a high note, donít take a chance after delay. After all the shit this guy has taken might as well let him have a week with that stat line.
He would have if there wasn't an hour+ rain delay  
ZogZerg : 8/9/2019 6:41 am : link
I was happy they didn't put him back out there after that.
Nope  
mdthedream : 8/9/2019 6:57 am : link
rain delay was the issue.
I know this is a stupid reason  
ron mexico : 8/9/2019 8:05 am : link
But I would have played him more so that he didn't finish with a perfect stat line. Keep the overreactions in check

Also, he can use the reps.

arcarsenal : 8/9/2019 8:07 am : link
No, not with a layover that long and all of the backup linemen.

There is plenty of time to get him reps in the following 3 games. He will play a lot.

If not for the delay, he would have played at least a couple more series. Shurmur made the right call.
Once guys..  
FatMan in Charlotte : 8/9/2019 8:13 am : link
tighten up and have rested for an extended period, there was no reason to force the issue.

3 more preseason games, as well as the most important stretch of practices coming up.
It wasn't just about

Daniel Jones coming back after the rain delay. It was the offensive line too. Shurmur was not going to put Jones out there with the 3rd string offensive tackles. He might have considered it if wheeler and mihalik were available.

Shurmur made the right call and Jones will get plenty of work in the remaining preseason games.

I m in the minority here, but I really like Tanney. I think he could be Jones backup next season
Yes. Adversity is going to happen. He needs all the reps he can get.  
RDJR : 8/9/2019 8:34 am : link
At this rate he will only play four quarters of preseason football. Game 1 - one series, Game 2 - likely one quarter, Game 3 (if Eli remains the starter) - maybe one quarter, Game 4 - maybe a half.

There's no reason why it has to be laid out like that.

If Shurmur thinks he should get more reps, he'll get more reps.
Makes sense now ...

I didn't consider the storm delay .

Agreed. I also do not want him playing with 3rd string lineman. Call me cautious, but 90% of them are not making the roster.

Shurmur made the right call
Why, to gets more reps?  
PaulN : 8/9/2019 12:10 pm : link
The chance of getting him hurt after a delay far outweighs the reps. He comes out of this game healthy and confident. The away full of excitement, what more do you want from game 1. Did you see the teams excitement, mission accomplished in one series.
