Most were surprised when New York Giants Head Coach Pat Shurmur went to rookie QB Daniel Jones after only two games, I included. When Jones was picked #6 overall the writing was on the wall that Eli’s time as the starting QB was limited.
The two main questions were:
- How fast can Daniel get ready?
- How well is the offense and the team doing, to make it logical to keep Eli on the field?
Personally, I wanted Eli to play for the whole year. I’ll admit that’s coming from a fan of Eli’s perspective.
