Giants’ Daniel Jones hears boos at Yankee Stadium

Giants’ Daniel Jones hears boos at Yankee Stadium Daniel Jones was a controversial choice when the New York Giants selected him with the No. 6 pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, and the rookie quarterback received a rude welcome from fans while attending Monday’s game at Yankee Stadium. Jones was shown on the Jumbotron as the New York Yankees hosted the Tampa Bay Rays, and his appearance on the big screen elicited boos, according to multiple dispatches on social media. #Giants first-round pick Daniel Jones is here at Yankee Stadium, was shown on video board between innings, and received lukewarm reception to say the least. #TheyAreSayingBoo#Yankees#Rays— Eduardo A.

A month ago, offensive coordinator Mike Shula said he thought Jones could start in Week 1 if the Giants needed him to.

On Tuesday, head coach Pat Shurmur continued to tout the worthiness of his rookie, saying Jones is “on track to be able to get himself ready to play Week 1,” per Ryan Dunleavy of NJ.com.

During the pre-draft process, Jones was praised for his intelligence, among other things. It seems clear that he is picking up Shurmur’s system quickly, and that he has impressed the Giants coaching staff as a whole.

Based on the reviews veteran Eli Manning has gotten this summer from beat writers who cover the Giants, the team may be relying on Jones far sooner than it anticipated.

Whether any of this translates to success on the field come Sundays — both in the short and long term — remains to be seen.

Saquon on OBJ trade: ‘We’ve even grown more as a team’.
The Odell Beckham trade seems to be bringing the Giants together. And that's not a knock on the wideout, who engineered his way out of New York. It seems simply to be an acknowledgment of the reality: the Giants won't have their most talented pass-catcher in 2019. They'll have to figure out how to unify in his absence - and perhaps excel. But Beckham's absence hasn't inspired Barkley to take on a bigger leadership role. "Whether he was there or not, I think my focus was to be a leader of the team," the second-year running back said.
