Pat Shurmur has message for Daniel Jones doubters

Pat Shurmur has message for Daniel Jones doubters

Consistently impressing during practice, Jones has completed 25 of 30 passes for 369 yards, two touchdowns, and no interceptions in three preseason contests. "(Jones) has done a good job in the preseason", Shurmur told reporters.

It's unclear how long 38-year-old incumbent quarterback Eli Manning will be the starter for this season, with Jones breathing right down his neck.

Kendricks is allowed to play in New England's final preseason game against the New York Giants on Thursday.

The initial working session on Sunday will focus on trade - a contentious area given Trump's escalating trade war with China. The UK is at risk of being implicated in this.

The No. 6 pick of the 2019 draft has been red-hot during the preseason; which raises questions after each passing week on whether he should get the start come Week 1. "We got a couple of weeks left before we play Dallas". At least, until he puts up a stinker in the regular season.

Golden had a 63-yard punt return for a touchdown in the fourth quarter as the Giants pulled away. In fact, it is likely Shurmur, who sees more value in preseason games than most National Football League coaches, will sit most of his starters on both sides of the ball for that very same reason. He only played in seven games previous year and knee and hip injuries in college seemingly hurt his draft stock.

Jones is proving all the doubters wrong so far. It's easy to resist calls to play Jones now while Manning is playing relatively well, but the quarterback of the future may soon be the quarterback of the present the way things are trending.
