  1. He’s the kind of guy that can be successful in more than just football. He can be a commentator if he wants to be around football. He’ll be fine.
  2. Whoever will fill the void in the NFL left by Luck’s retirement? Who? Who!?? <— Does the arrow line up with my avatar? Oh well, close enough
  3. Daniel Jones is looking better than Haskin

    People that are dismissing Jones’ performance haven’t been in touch with what has been coming out of Giants camp. He’s been turning heads since OTAs. Two months ago, way before preseason even started, the word on the street was the Giants are saying he’s the best rookie they’ve ever had. (This was according to Chris Simms and his sources). Even I had to roll my eyes considering we just saw the NFL ROY last year - The best running back in the NFL. If you listen to Shurmur talk about Jones’ preseason performances, he’s not surprised. The players and beat writers are not surprised. These are people that see players practice, and they see players play in real games. So they know what translates into an NFL player, and what doesn’t. And everyone that’s been around Jones believes he’s going to be a good one. Now, if Jones came out and threw out a couple stinkers in preseason, that wouldn’t really jive with what we’re hearing from camp so I’d be more skeptical. But, with the best rookie QB preseason since 2006, he’s only validating the hype. He’s going to be a good one. The Giants future is bright. @SkippyX Nobody is talking about Lauletta despite his decent preseason stats. He might not even make the cut despite being a 3rd round pick last year because he hasn’t shown much in camp. It’s not as simple as looking a preseason stats. That’s not what we’re doing here.
  4. I'm surprised this doesn't happen more often. He most likely has over $80 million in the bank. What's the point in continuing to take that kind of beating?
  5. We have way too many receivers sharing first and last names. We need to cut Russell Sheppard for that reason alone. Too confusing
  6. Daniel Jones is looking better than Haskin

    Nobody is drawing conclusions after 3 preseason games. But, to this point, does Daniel Jones look like the #6 overall pick? Yes! To this point, were most people wrong about him? Yes

    I think this goes to @Yin-Yang’s point that we shouldn’t jump on gun on calling players a success prematurely. How much do we really know about Mayfield? All we know is that he can pad stats against bottom 5 defenses. He couldn’t even win Rookie of the year. Daniel Jones is not impressed.

    Sarcasm is anger’s ugly cousin
  9. Daniel Jones is looking better than Haskin

    Well can we at least pivot to saying he looks like a first round pick? Because there were plenty of people that suggested he had no business being drafted in the first round, let alone #6 overall. Some had him as a fourth round prospect.

    This isn’t due to lack of talent. There are usually circumstance that derail careers. Usually it’s injuries, laziness or substance abuse. Hard to imagine Jones having these issues. Knock on wood for staying healthy.

    People act like defenders aren’t even trying out there in the preseason. You know a lot of those defenders are trying to earn a roster spot. They’re fighting for an opportunity to make a living playing football. They’re trying their butts off. Furthermore, Jones was going up against the Bengals first stringers last night. I put more stock in preseason than I do in college football games. But if preseason is so easy, what do we make of Baker’s 10/26, 72 yards, 1 int performance tonight? 🤔
  12. As sad as it sounds, he probably knew five years ago that he was going to have CTE issues when he retires anyway. Probably figured he didn’t have much to lose by continuing to play. Might as well make as much money as possible to set himself and his family up.

    Hate is such a strong word
  14. Daniel Jones is looking better than Haskin

    Three years huh? Should be just enough time for you to forget how wrong you were. Most fourth round quarterback prospects don’t even see the field in the regular season.

    They don’t call him Danny Dimes for nothing 😉
