Listen: Daniel Jones named Giants starting quarterback
"I don't know if it's the biggest news in the NFL it's one of the bigger stories it's tough to balance which stories more important than the other yeah three pretty successful quarterbacks actually for that have all been in the news. cam Newton probably not going to play this upcoming weekend with the foot injury miss practice last two days drew Brees out for six weeks surgery on the farm well the saints be able to survive without drew Brees when they turn their attention to a combination of teddy Bridgewater and taste some hello also a big band out for the season the Mason Rudolph arable officially start this weekend and then you get you lie manning who his career is coming to a close he just finished up the eighteenth hole and he's walking to the clubhouse. I must if there's an injury to Daniel Jones that's the only way I foresee him getting on the field or if the giants want to do. a final home game for Eli manning which I don't think that's how you should operate when you pretty much given him a two year victory lap tore as it is and Eli manning is getting benched by the New York football giants that are moving on to the future or what they think is the future in Daniel Jones. and I think this is the right move. if you wanna told me before the season started it would be this early I didn't think it would be this early because of the giants loyalty however being in New York. being someone that was all on the fan on Monday into Tuesday before the announcement was made later Tuesday afternoon. you could read that the writing was on the wall that they were moving to Daniel Jones because if you're the head football coach knowing how sensitive of a topic it is and you get up to the podium and you can announce your starting quarterback is on Monday well you know by Tuesday or Wednesday the news was coming that he lied manning was going to the bench and Daniel Jones was going to be the starter so what does hold the lye manning situation I think it's the right move. they have a stable offense of wine in place which they did not have a year ago they have a general project generational talent at running back in se Kwan Barkley now the receivers are problem however you have to opponents that are not that difficult doesn't mean you're going to win because the giants can't stop as but Scott would say a nose bleed it we don't when you look at the giants defense so you see this giants team it's a bad team but they get a break in the schedule with the box and the red skins before they played the Vikings are the giants and then it goes back to the cardinals in the lines to not so good football teams so I think the timing of it is okay however you wonder what was the point what was the purpose in bringing back. you lie banning if you're going to abandon him. and jump ships after two games and it comes back to the loyalty that. John Merrow has relied manning as you see in this dance unfolding for three years now when I first tried to get rid of him they botched it ain't going to Gino Smith instead of Davis wide but they given the full year last year new coach it didn't work out and you see the ally manning go from a quarterback who was well above five hundred to now being out five hundred so sure you like manning isn't the only one to blame for this however you have to ask yourself are you a better team with the lie manning. and. I don't think you can definately give me an answer that states the giants are better team with you lie manning it doesn't mean Daniel Jones is going to white be legal on fire the first few games however there's an unknown with Daniel Jones and I'm always willing since he is a young quarterback since he is your future franchise quarterback so you think picking him six overall I'm willing to get that ball rolling in the right direction now and get in the experience. there's not a purpose the play Eli manning anymore you know his career is over. and you can call up at a five five two one two four CBS and disagree with me one of his career is not over have you watched the last three years. and if his career was in over. and the giants to Jack to the quarterback. had maybe an opportunity trade and why hasn't something happened Jaguars Tom Coughlin connection not happen in the role the guard to mention. Minneapolis colds. what happened. the Pittsburgh Steelers all the reason the marriage have a great relationship. Mason road off. so I don't see a situation this year. that you're gonna be able to treat you like manning a for the giants. and next year I think it would behoove him to retire. who's the team that's going to sign him. now you never know what injuries happen and maybe if you want to take a one year rental on him. I don't think he's that good anymore and this is not not the Eli manning it's just being honest and the evaluations of the observations I've made the last two three years on the line manning. I do think he's a hall of fame quarterback. I think he's been a very good regular season quarterback and he was a great postseason quarterback so when you combine the two. I think that puts him in the hall of fame I really do believe so I think I'll get in the hall of fame I think you should get in the hall of fame however it's time to realize and plus these top ten in passing yards in top ten in touch downs but it's time to realize if you rely manning but this is it. and the scary part is I don't think everyone in the giants organization is on board. you look at the three big decision makers there the coach the general manager and the owner. notice how Pat Shurmur speaks on this. Dave gentleman in John marriage did not speak to the media on this. and I really do believe John marriage didn't want to go down this road yet they knew that Jones is going to play this year. now married did send an ideal world we don't see Daniel Jones should the giants don't see Daniel Jones this year. I think he knew the on the back of his mind that this wasn't a good football team even as optimistic as you can before the season starts you're eventually going to see Jones I don't think he ever thought it was going to happen this early and you know for damn sure Dave gentleman doesn't want the clock to start taking on his decision. because they've got all men a few months ago was talking about. it's the Kansas city model I don't know the you know the Green Bay model we do not see until twenty twenty. not at all one person Asian but every time I hear Dave get on there's one quote that will never escape my mind. Jim Jones asked him a question about the future he goes can I don't know the future I can get hit by a car tomorrow so how do you get a man to me I don't think he knows what he's doing I don't but his future as the giants general manager is going to be decided. off with Daniel Jones does. so he wants the bonds also more time. it doesn't surprise me doesn't want to throw someone to the walls that early except Pat Shurmur won this argument you know I patch over one this argument is he went into the room. and he said I'm coaching for my job I probably will get fired this year but. if I have another bad you the you after this. yeah I'm gonna get fired and you guys aren't letting me play the best player available at the quarterback position. because we've been through this dance for years with the all right now any wise Donnie's finish his best days are behind them. and he's not the only problem but he's part of the problem so they want to find a resolution get the experience the Daniel Jones and team up with se Kwan Barkley because all you're doing point you lie manning for a few weeks is you're wasting. se Kwan Barkley until Daniel Jones gets on the field. but that do together let's see what they could do and also maybe it gives you a little spark. is there going to be some down times are gonna be some downtime to Dale Jones yes am I convinced he's gonna be the franchise quarterback no I don't love the pick. I need to see it though because the alternative and what you've been doing for the last three years has not been working. so yes I thought the giants were right to move on even though all were in agreement in the organization the way I interpret it and yes I believe you I manning is a hall of fame quarterback open up that conversation to you at a five five two one two for CBS on the other"
