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

"Right now, only going gonna tell you Jim Jones in wrestling with some people. They're not going to say wherever met is. They don't know. They don't. They don't they just tell you all the big on. I don't know. That's honestly, man. I'm telling you. It's so liberating when you stop judging. I looked like you don't know. I don't know. Anyway. So couple things let me give you something else. I think about this. There's going to be very basic. But I think music lives in its own cocoon. I think about distribution right makes sense. But I don't think about it. The way the music industry does. For example, what song are we going to give some YouTube person to put a nerve log, what song are we going to ask some e sports kid while they're paying four nine to play on repeat in the background. I'll tell you. That's where Drake as very smart like Drake is a marketer as much as he is an artist could great things about this bution freak doesn't show up on ninjas four nights channel for fun. That's what I want you to do. I want you to pick a song. It'd be like, okay. This is good for teeny boppers. This is good for each sports people. This is good for we want this playing during the garden like warm-ups got it distribution. Like, if you want some of the pop, you need distribution doesn't make sense. I always avoid knows this. I was talking about good, Charlotte. Because I think that was the last time I played Madden ninety six ninety seven in the when you were making your dynasty teen. Good. Charlotte was playing repeat yet. All these kids in hood meal, yoga trollers fucking fresh Madden. Recommends. Own the end. Give me an example of something. That's like a given. Let's play here. We're having fun. What would be dream scenario? Hang. Health is men's health magazine. Meghan talking about both. I'm so happy right now. Let me help you the reason I am who I am is because the level that I hit on both both of this. Let me explain men's health. G Q there's Fifty-three Instagram accounts that if we get you on you'll get fifty times more than those two things if you're on the cover mental. If you get fifty three of the right influencers and Meema counts in Venice. You'll get way more attention next. There's thirty five podcasts and fucking that will make it way bigger than that. Like if you ask me, why companies or big artists losing as they're playing the. Guys won gold link went on Falun. Nobody fucking watched. It's just I don't think people get it. I used to pray at the Wall Street Journal fast company or ink or the New York Times reach out to me. Now, I make them meet me. Cat-and-mouse boys and girls, you know, guys, get girls the Crookham to you that like, that's what you want to do with this like spending any energy trying to get them versus diversifying the distribution within a digital phone environment. I think we'll give you a lot more leverage. I think about everything is how many bullets in the chamber. That's all. I would tripled down on your audience. Are you doing interim lives at all? Good. How often? It's hard. It's hard. I don't. Do you talk to the fans that listen, I'll be very honest. The thing that you know, as we've been getting to know each other, you know, it's the same old shit. You have to do with somebody you give a fuck. He's paying attention a little more. I'll be honest with you. What's most interesting for me with you? If I became your fulltime manager we start a business again. This is my life. Literally, the first thing I would say to you is forty two year old white girls. That would be my back row business strategy for gender. Meaning I think. I think you win that game. I think you'd win that game. And let me tell you about that game. You want to talk about real bags? Bags? Sloops hanging out with Martha Stewart for fun.

"Number three coming up here on nightside. Thanks to everybody who has joined the conversation tonight. And we have a great topic. And a great guest this hour. He's been a guest here before he's a writer from central Massachusetts makes a living as a writer which ladies and gentlemen, not easy to do. Daniel j Flynn, Dan Flynn, Dan. Welcome back. Tonight's at Hawaii. Outstanding. Thanks for having me. Well, you've written several books. You also write columns. I mean, you literally make a living as a writer, and that's not an easy profession to pursue allegedly. Make a living. Sometimes it doesn't feel like much of a living. No, no, no. So how many books have you written? So this is the sex book. And I think the last I was on here in August. But the last time I was on here for a book was I wrote a book called the war on football, which delved into the controversies with concussions and other controversy surrounding football in. So that was the last one I did. And this one is obviously in a very different topic than that. So what the topic that you've written this entitled cult city? Jim Jones Harvey milk in ten days that shook San Francisco I remember this vividly and many of our audience will remember this vividly as well. But for those in the audience whose memories are a little foggy maybe for those in the audience who were not around at the time, we go back forty years. It's November next month is November of two thousand eighteen and when is the anniversary of this horrific massacre. So November eighteenth November eighteenth. I know exactly where I wasn't November eighteenth nineteen seventy et Al explained that later on during the hour. I don't know if you can remember where you were exactly on that day. But you certainly know explain to the audience, let's set this up James Jones, Reverend Jim Jones. Is he actually a Reverend who was he sort of a self made Reverend? He no he was actually a Reverend when he he did a sort of a a biographical sketch of himself an autobiographical sketch, and he explained to his followers of the people in the room that you know, he thought how can I demonstrate my Marxism, and he said the thought was to infiltrate the church, and so he may be trying to impress his followers at that point who were socialists, and Jim Jones is probably the the worst authority on Jim Jones because he was a liar. But he made the point to tell us his people close to him that from the very beginning. His whole object was to promote Marxism was to promote socialism and use the ministry as a means to do that. He certainly was doing that by the nineteen seventies. Now, whether he was doing that in the nineteen fifties and the nineteen sixties, you know, to one extent has deigned minister from somewhere guy that got became a minister he was he was an ordain minister. Okay minister. All right. So he. Again, have read portions of the book, I learned about a lot about Jim Jones a tough time. San Francisco's had some tough times. You mentioned Harvey milk. Harvey milk was a is an alderman in San Francisco, essentially, boy, he's on the board of supervisors the supervisors. Okay. And he happened to be gay, and he gets involved here in this book a little bit, but subsequent to the massacre in Jonestown milk was assassinated. That's right. And it was the mayor San Francisco, and the initial thought was that Jim Jones is evenging angels had come back to San Francisco to finish their work and very quickly that thought evaporated upon the new, you know, when Dianne Feinstein announced everyone that Dan white was the suspect there's a lot in the book on Dan white. That's never been talked about before he had a violent history prior to what he did. He was also on the board of supervisors crackle. So Dan, Dan, white and Harvey milk were elected in nineteen seventy seven. They were sort of like a new wave a politician in San Francisco over the years. There has been a almost a caricature portrayed both white and milk where we're milk kind of comes into the book aside from the fact that obviously these two assassinations happen these two events happened. So close to one another is that he was a supporter of Jim Jones. And a lot of people don't realize that that a lot of the folks in San Francisco and even nationally Jim Jones was not some fringe figure. He was not, you know, like Charles Manson street person type guy he was selling that was very much in the in crowd so much. So that the mayor of San Francisco, George Mosconi appointed him to the housing commission, San Francisco and he quickly became with mccown. What's going to support the chairman of the housing commission in San Francisco, which pretty scary thought when you think of how he treated his tenants in Jonestown that this guy is essentially the largest landlord in the city of San Francisco, you don't see. That with other people whose names are set in the same breath people like Ted Bundy or Charles Manson, this guy was very much in the establishment in San Francisco. And it says something about that city in that decade. It was sort of the hangover after the high. You know, you had the summer of love Haight. Ashbury Haight Ashbury, all that stuff that was going in the nineteen sixties, and that was a whole lot of fun. And then all of a sudden, you have the hangover, and it's not so much fun. You have the semi's Liberation Army and the kidnapping of Patty Hearst, you have this group called the new world Liberation Front. That is putting bombs they put a bomb on the on the window sill of Dianne Feinstein. They would send candy to different office holders. And it'd be bombs in the Russell Stover candy box. There were weathermen hiding out. There was obviously the zodiac killer. The zebra killings. There's all sorts of craziness going on in the nineteen sixties into this Stu calms people's temple at one to two things you forgot they were to press. Assassination attempts on Gerald Ford. By was it Sara Jane Moore one of the net job? I was the one in San Francisco. Right. And then there was one Sacramento by squeaky fry squeaky fromm, which Sacramento's not that far from short Cisco northern California. So it was a wild wild time. And of course, San Francisco still has immense problems today. But what I want to come back to is the central figure Jim Jones who eventually would lead was it three hundred or more. This is nine hundred and eighteen people that were killed including Jones, including Jones. It was a mass suicide in these re people who were poor who had basically given everything everything to this guy who portrayed himself as a messiah and who people believed in. It's an amazing story. It's an amazing book called city. Jim Jones, Harvey milk and ten days that shook San Francisco. I did not recall that the assassinations followed so closely on the Jonestown massacre. Sure that was that was nine days later, and I think history the history that's told is the Dan white killed Harvey milk because he was gay. I got very hobby milk was because Harvey milk was gay. I got a much more complicated version told to me one of the guys I spoke to was Dan White's campaign manager chief of staff and business partner. He's he's gay, and we're gonna get to all of that. We're going to take a break. My guest in studio. Dan, Flynn, if you have recollections or memories, are you wanna ask any questions about one of the most disgraceful chapters in American history a chapter which has to some extent been forgotten, but it has been revived and resurrected by author Dan Flynn in his new book called city just out today. Six seven two five four ten thirty triple eight nine two nine ten thirty. I have a connection to this story album. It is a very distant connection to the story. But I'll share that with you. And if those of you who want to share your memories of the Jonestown massacre would love to hear from you as well. You know, the numbers coming back on nightside. Nightside.

"This group of people and about him particularly uh and there's a lot of really interesting stuff to read about him so jim jones was basically a communist okay in the fifties in fifty six in the united states when that was just not a thing is a superpopular position too tightly it right but he was he was a serious communist and you've got invited to congress you to to speak in front of congress you got all kinds of fun things he ended up being supported by jerry brown by harvey milk well how yet you're not they weren't disciple there were a congregants ya right but they they were big supporters of the people's temple in i'll tell you why jim jones was a lot of things but he as far as his social outreach and as far as what he was trying to do for disadvantaged people he was the real deal on the that was his marxism um and in fact he has a thing to say about that is quoted as saying i decided how can i demonstrate my marxism the thought was infiltrate the church so i consciously made a decision to look into that prospect of that's interesting so yeah her when did he say that he said i don't know what the year was but you know probably in the '50s when he crazy so i mean it's kinda the opposite approach that the russians took ride the right out the russians when they tried to implement communism just said no religion allowed right he decided let's just do it from the religious standpoint to super weird angle to take but i think he understood in the american context that communism as a as a as a programmatic enforced aetheism was never going to happen.
