End of an Era: Giants Are Benching Eli Manning For Daniel Jones

Saquon Barkley gave such a cool answer when asked about Daniel Jones first start

"Eli and I spoke this morning", Giants coach Pat Shurmur said Tuesday in a release. The yards and interceptions are the most Manning threw against any team.

The Giants fell in "full-bloom love" with Jones and his skill set prior to drafting him No. 6 overall. Things didn't even look that close.

The Giants play the Buccaneers (1-1) on Sunday in Tampa to kick off the Jones Era.

"Ultimately, this is a move that I felt was best for this team at this time". Whatever Coach (Shurmur) said, I'll let him answer those questions. "And I'll support Daniel and I'll be a good teammate and do what I'm told'".

From everything I have seen from Daniel Jones, from everything the Giants believe they have seen from Daniel Jones, he will not be one who buckles under the weight of great expectations.

"Giants fans, just know that I'll compete as hard as I possibly can, prepare as hard as I possibly can, and when I'm out there, just play as hard as I can, and do what I can to help this team win games".

Jones, the former Duke and Charlotte Latin quarterback the Giants selected No. 6 overall in last April's National Football League draft, was named the team's starting quarterback on Tuesday morning.


If this is the end of Manning in NY, he finishes his Giants career with a record of 116-116 with 56,537 passing yards, 362 touchdowns, 241 interceptions and a passer rating of 84.1 in 234 games.

Jones will be the third of the 11 quarterbacks selected in this year's draft to both play and start a game.

Shurmur planted the seed for a change on Monday, when he said all positions were going to be reviewed. In those four games, he completed 29 of 34 passes for 416 yards, two touchdowns, and no interceptions to go with a 137.2 quarterback rating.

But now Jones has to prove it, and against real NFL-level competition, meaning against coaches and starters game-planning specifically to defend him - which typically is not the case in August.

Manning played his college ball at the University of MS and was the No. 1 pick in the 2004 NFL Draft.

Manning, 38, replaced Kurt Warner in November 2004 and has made a franchise-record 232 starts in addition to earning two Super Bowl MVPs. "I've just got to keep working and do whatever my job is". He had three fumbles in the preseason and one in his only regular-season game action.

While at Duke, Jones led the Blue Devils to victories in the 2017 Quick Lane Bowl against Northern Illinois and the 2018 Independence Bowl against Temple, which was his last game in a Duke uniform.
