Listen: Daniel Jones, New York Giants And Giants discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"You look at the NFL this morning with the giants deciding citing on Daniel Jones that is now fourteen. NFL teams over forty percent of the League has their guy and he's a young a young guy and they picked him in the last four drafts in next year Miami number. One's going to take to a so that will be fifteen teams that have their guy. Sam Darnold should've played last last night so that's what you want to be or you have rogers you have brady you have breeze but but you don't want to be stuck in the middle and the New York giants. They were stuck in the middle thing about this. There's nine teams in the NFL nine. There are two and three have the hall of fame veteran six. Knicks have the young guy the Lamar Jackson Josh Allen. You don't want to be in the Andy Dalton sweepstakes Cincinnati this morning. You know you gotta ceiling in. It's not that exciting. The growth period is over. You bring in a new coach. I mean how many coaches going to run through in Cincinnati. How many coordinators in Detroit in Tennessee how many you've had two. You're on your second coordinator in two years and you still can't beat Jacoby. Bruce set at home that to me is a bad place to be driving to work. I either want the guy by or somebody that has the potential to be the guy but if you just have the expensive guy with a ceiling kirk cousins Joe flacco Matt Matt Stafford. I know everybody in Detroit loves him but God what's his defining moment nine years in the League one one play one defining moment so I think the giants today made a decision that needed to be made. I understand it's difficult. I think they handled this with. I think Hugh Jackson summed it up. They had listen. We got a guy. We picked him six. He can play young guys are now playing. We got beat by Josh Allen. He's your age and Daniel Jones. He's your age and we're going to give you a couple of games and they did and and by the way this is something we talked about this join. I talked about this. The New York giants were prepping their fans for this remember back in May when Daniel Jones got drafted in April and all of a sudden. This footage started leaking out it was like a music video Daniel Jones look great rate today and it would be these slow mo passes and it was just perfect didn't why did they release that getting you ready and then not. Li- manning a report came out in one of the camps. Eli looked a little rusty. Nobody saw it but the story came out getting you ready then. They put Daniel Jones in during the preseason. They kept the number ones in. They played their offensive line three times as many stars as the cowboys. Oh boy the rams played their offensive line why to protect Daniel Jones to get the giant fans excited for Daniel Jones. They were playing their offensive line line more snaps than other. NFL teams so they released video. Daniel Jones slow motion throws they look. It's like a music video report. Report comes out ally is struggling and then they play Daniel Jones. They keep the starters in longer. They've been prepping you for this this. I'm not saying they went out of their way to look bad but I think the giants I think the giants won't admit it but they know they. They have a rebuilding situation and I don't think it hurt their feelings to look awful in the first two weeks. This is I think they wanted to rip the band laid off. You know you've had abandoned before new slowly peel just rip it off cry for a thirty seconds and move on this is the rip the band mandate moment but I think the giants knew it was coming allies too smart not to know it's coming and I I gotta be. I wasn't going to watch the giants play this Sunday Tampa giants. I was out. I've seen that game. It's not good. I got better things to do with my life and I love the. NFL Daniel Jones okay. I'm in I WANNA see that Tampa Bay. They defense did never pro bowl last year. It's not like it's mega talented. No Todd Bowles. Is there coordinator in Tampa so he's a viva's a former jets coach he can really but I don't know I mean if you look at the NFL teams right now Buffalo Kansas City Dallas Green Bay Tom Brady and the Patriots Rams Raven Seattle and San Francisco. It's either a veteran in hall of Fame Level Guy or a kid. You think can be great. None of the all those teams have a direction even if the young quarterbacks scrap and a little bit darnold not there yet yeah. You feel like you have a direction this morning. The New York giants have a direction. It's fun"
