Shurmur said it was important to have Eli Manning start the game. "He's our starter and I think it's important he played to some degree. The idea was not to go three-and-out.''

Last year, Shurmur cut back on Eli's workload in the first two practices after the preseason opener and gave Webb and Lauletta reps with the 1's. Asked if he'll follow the same plan with Jones this year: "Nope."

didn't ask how OBJ felt about Jones?

Strange.

Shurmur says Alec Ogletree has a calf strain and Jon Hilliman is in the concussion protocol.

Mentions Darius Slayton, Grant Haley and Chad Wheeler as guys Giants could get back this week.

Shurmur likes the way rookie CB DeAndre Baker performed well in his debut. "He's sort of a gamer."

I'm not sure if I follow this

Laulletta and Webb got practice reps with the ones last year but Jones wont get them this year?

Is that what he is saying? Or he he just trying to be vague about the plan?

Any Q&A with Eli on why he missed wide open Ellison last night? Curious to hear his answer. Mind boggling how he missed him on a play clearly designed to go to Ellison and he was open.

Yes. @KimJonesSports
asked Shurmur about the play, and he said you could make the argument that the ball should have gone to Ellison. "But he made the play and you move on."

MotownGIANTS : 8/9/2019 12:27 pm : link
the Ellison IF that continues and Jones continues to improve how do you overlook it? This was an issue with Eli last season missing open guys for whatever reason.

Yes Eli gives us the best chance to win right NOW, but how true will that be IF Jones trends upward like a top 6 pick. Whiled Eli continues to not see the field as well as he should at his price-point, tenure and experience level?
Jones obviously won't stay perfect  
Ten Ton Hammer : 8/9/2019 12:28 pm : link
but making the coaches squirm a little bit by forcing them to compare the two players on tape is nothing but healthy for the franchise.

I agree. The guys was out there with the 3's and was taking very bad angles. If the guy is right in front of him he will make a hard tackle. Otherwise he is not a good player in space.
