Daniel “Flash” Jones: A Positive First Impression

Written by: Glenn Warciski

5 for 5 and a TD!   Although it is preseason and only one series,  Giants 2019 first round pick QB Daniel Jones provided much needed excitement for a frustrated fan base and beleaguered front office.  Jones provided hope.  As Andy Dufrense  from the Shawshank Redemption quipped, “Hope is a good thing,  maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies.”

You're a doubter.

Yes.  I am a doubter about Jones.   And I am also a fervent Giants fan.   His brief and brilliant appearance put a smile on my face.    One word to describe Daniel Jones: Unflappable.   With all eyes watching him and expecting him to flop,  Jones showed poise and was in command.

A long time follower of this blog named Duke told me,  “This Jones could be something special.”  Duke is a longtime Giants fan who has been following the team since the 1950s.  His other take:  “Eli Manning is finished.”   Gettleman made a miscalculation by keeping him for his 16th season.


Major takeaway from this game was Jones’ performance.  Let us hope he can build upon his first time in action.
