Is Eli Manning right about Daniel Jones?
Former New York Giants’ quarterback and two-time Super Bowl champion and MVP Eli Manning recently spoke with the NFL Network and explained why he thinks current Big Blue starting quarterback Daniel Jones will excel this coming season.
“I think also just the fact that from your first year to second year, Jones had a new offensive coordinator, a new coach, and everything going in,” Manning said. “Now, at least going from [year] two to three, he has the same offense and the ability to grow within the offense. It’s not just the quarterback getting comfortable; it’s the offensive line, the receivers, everybody getting on that same page. I’m excited for him, I’m excited for the team, and I look forward to good things.”
Manning has a great point. People don’t realize how hard it is on quarterbacks to change offenses. Hopefully year two in Jason Garrett’s system will be one in which Jones has a breakout season.
With Manning now once again a part of the Giants’ organization he also indicated how excited he is to be around the players again.
“I am excited to be back just to see the players and be around them,” Manning said. “I still communicate with Daniel Jones and Saquon [Barkley] and Sterling Shepard and the guys that were there. I’m excited to go to a Giants football game as a fan. I’ve never done that before. I’ve never gone as a fan. I’ve never been inside the stadium and watched the game. I’ve never watched a game with my kids before besides on TV. So, I’m excited to take my kids to the stadium, root on the Giants, root for a big win, and enjoy that with the fans.”
