September is never a good month for the New England Patriots.
Historically, they come out slow, and it's obvious to everyone they're working on getting in sync, improving communication.
And it feels like the 1st 4 games of the season is just an extended preseason.
Believe it or not, it's not any different this season.
The only difference is the Patriots so far, are so talented that they're covering up for their mistakes.
For those of you who think this is me taking a shot at the Patriots, it's not.
This is me preparing Pats Nation and put into putting the rest of the NFL on notice that the Patriots are only going to get better as the season goes on.
And when they do, just who is going to get in their way Tonight, I get the pleasure of breaking down everything.
The Patriots aren't actually doing great, and when we can expect to see them at their best pats nation, I hope you're buckled up because this season is going to be a lot of fun.
Dear Pats Nation.
What's going on? It's your boy, Ray, and welcome to my little show here on DPM.
Coming to you Live on Sportscaster on September 16 2019 on victory Monday.
Make sure you join me live on sportscasters Sunday through Thursday.
Thank you for those of you who are watching portions of this replay on YouTube, I've left the length of my sportscaster profile in the description.
If you do want to check out my live streams, makes you subscribe to my YouTube channel because you will get YouTube exclusive videos on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
And I guess now it's time that we just start talking about our New England Patriots.
So, really, when we think about it, we couldn't have asked for a more perfect start to this Patriotsseason, right after a strong 33 the three victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers and weak one.
We all got to witness what I am now referring to as the Miami massacre yesterday, when the Patriots went down to Miami to their sort of grounds that they're never successful and pounded the Miami Dolphins 43 to nothing.
And you know that when you look around the league and you look at all the other NFL teams are too unknown have looked good.
For example, the Baltimore Ravens who have looked really, really good.
You're still kind of watching, waiting for something to give right, and I'm not knocking the Ravens.
I think that they're a very good team.
But you saw that wondering of isn't too good to be true.
Could Lamar Jackson continue this kind of play? The New England Patriots, on the other hand, just seemed to really be the real Deice.
Part is as a Patriots fan, as we haven't even seen what this team can be.
Look, instead of my intro, we all know about the Patriots.
Slow starts in September, and this year's been no different.
The Patriots just have so much talent, it's making it look so much different than it did last year.
In this season before, let's look at the Dolphins game.
Okay, first of all, let's start with this.
We all know that the Patriots controlled that game from start to finish, even though they weren't throwing up a 1,000,000 touchdowns right away.
We all know that they were in total control of that game, but when you were watching, you could see that not everything was clicking, you know, obviously, the offensive line is a working progress It's patchwork.
Isaiah Win is going for an M r I to check out if he has turf.
Told we didn't have Marcus Cannon, which put Cory Cunningham and, um, a new house on the line, you know, and really the injuries is starting to get the best of the Patriots on that offensive line.
But I have faith in Dante Scarnecchia that he's gonna get the new guys up to Speed.
Marcus Cannon is gonna come back.
You know what turf told he can usually treated.
You can usually give injections, would get Isiah Wind back.
And I'm hoping that Marcus Cannon could be back as early as next week, if not by Week four.
When we take on the Bills, but a wave just from the offensive line, we can see that Brady is still getting in sync and still getting on the same page with those wide receivers.
I mean, yeah, Brady came out and he targeted Antonio Brown a lot, but even Brady says they have a long way to go, and really, they were using Brown sparingly and solely acclimatizing himself to the Patriot system.
Josh Gordon didn't have the greatest game against Miami Dolphins Brady's best connection is Julian Edelman, and even Adelman looks like he's still getting his game legs under him.
He missed a lot of time in the preseason and, uh, you know, in training camp with his injury, Matt Lacoste, you missed a lot of time.
The off season he's still building report with Brady.
You look at yesterday.
He's still been used more as a blocker than a receiver.
James White has really been not a part of the game plan at all, but we could also face it.
Even Josh McDaniels.
He showed the rest of the NFL nothing yesterday.
His calls were very vanilla and very safe, and it was all done by design, and I got no issues with it, and I was talking about it during my stream when I was streaming the game.
I said, I think the Patriots know that they don't have to do anything fancy right now, so they're just calling vanilla plays, being very safe.
And when you're playing a team like the Miami Dolphins, who are that bad, there's no reason to open up the playbook defensively.
Yesterday, the only thing was really, you know, missing.
And it wasn't missing, but it was missing from Game one and it got better.
Yesterday was the past rush like it woke up a little bit.
There's still a huge room for improvement.
I'd like to see Dante Hightower and Kyle Van Noy get a little bit more involved in the game.
Michael Bennett still hasn't showed us everything that he has.
And despite listing all those areas that the patrons can improve upon and get better, they have outscored their opponents 76 to 3 over the 1st 2 games of the season.
And I get that. The Dolphins aren't good.
They're gonna be the worst day of C East, possibly the worst in the NFL.
The Patriots still shut out an NFL team yesterday.
The Steelers offense was pretty, you know, half decent and the Patriots up three points.
You know, I remember, um, just recently on the most recent America's game, Julian adamant, saying, You don't have the same team in November that you didn't September.
You know, the same team in December that you did this in September and Bill Belichick's famous line is you know he's famous for saying that football doesn't start until after Thanksgiving, And that tells me that the Patriots know that there is still huge room for improvement and that it's only going to get better as the season goes on.
Like think about a guy, it's like, really, really think about it.
Try to imagine what this team will look like when Antonio Brown is fully up to speed and using the, you know, knows all the routes and all the place it could be used on all the formations.
Think about how good this is gonna look when Josh Gordon and Julian Edelman completely shake off all the offices and rust.
I think about when we played good teams of Josh McDaniels actually goes out and opens up the playbook, and we saw a little bit of a little bit of that against the Steelers.
We start none of it against the Dolphins.
The running game really hasn't gotten going yet, and as the offensive line figures things out, it's gonna get better.
Michael Bennett, in the entire front seven haven't really gotten going.
When they do, it's gonna be crazy, and at some point the secondary isn't gonna improve their communication.
That's already been great this year, Right now, there's only three games that actually give me pause and worry to think about against the Baltimore Ravens.
It's always been tough for the Patriots. Go to Baltimore.
They still have Harbaugh's their coach, the Philadelphia Eagles.
Obviously, now the Patriots will be going there after Abi.
But there's gonna be a motion that Philly fan is.
Philly fans are gonna be revved up, and we all know how crazy they can be.
And then, obviously, when the Patriots host the Kansas City Chiefs at home.
But by the time we get to these Games, which really don't start until week nine, when they when the Patriots take on the Ravens, the Patriots could be so far ahead of these other teams, I don't necessarily just mean in the standings.
I just mean by how they're clicking and how they're playing that it won't be worrisome at all.
You know, I talked about it twice last week, and I'll still keep talking about it until I can't talk about it anymore.
But this Patriots team looks like the perfect roster, even with the offensive line issues.
I love that the Onley thing that the talking heads in the haters and the media are saying now is that when the Patriots play a real pass rush, they're gonna be in trouble.
I think that's a little bit of a stretch, and it's a stretch because most of you, considering that most of you were talking about noodle arms and cliffs just a couple of weeks ago, everybody was claiming that the Steelers had a chance to win.
There was experts that were cleaning.
The Miami Dolphins would make it a game on Sunday.
And yet again, the New England Patriots have made sure to shut you up again.
I'm telling you, watching those shows today.
I loved watching you guys all backpedal out of your studio this morning, and I'm not jumping the gun.
I get how bad the Dolphins are.
I told everybody how bad the Dolphins were all week.
When people are saying they still gotta go to Miami, it's always tough.
In Miami, I kept saying, Shut up.
The pages are gonna go down and destroy the Dolphins and yeah, the Dolphins are bad.
But you can't deny how good the Patriots are, and they're only gonna get better.
And I take great pleasure that knowing outside of Patriots Nation, it's going to drive the entire NFL absolutely, positively insane.
All right, guys, it's now time for me to answer your questions that I got.
You know what I mean? And ah, I got everything last night from wanting me to assess Antonio Brown's debut and performance against the Dolphin.
Damian Harris in Jacoby Meyers.
See playing time how we feel about Stephen Gostkowski and so much more, and I will answer as many as I can.
And if you do want to leave me a question to be answered in the stream, make sure you follow me on Instagram.
It's at DP an underscore Ray again, that's at DP an underscore Ray.
And if you go click on my stories there, I always put ah box up for you.
Ask questions and I do my best answers much like kind of my streams.
With that being said, let's jump in your questions.
The first question is, is, were you impressed with Antonio Brown? Look for playing his first game with the Patriots.
Had a really good game.
Ah, to be artist, he was used way more than I thought he would be like I was kind of saying at the top there the Patriots have a history of easy and wide receivers into their system.
And, you know, I think Josh Gordon, but like 18 snaps the first time and he was only targeted like three or four times.
Tom Brady showed last night that he wanted to target Antonio Brown.
Um, the touchdown play that he made showed that he's a playmaker, and I just think each week you'll see him or involved in the offense.
And as the weeks go on, he's gonna get better and better and better.
What I'm gonna be interested to see is how they use both Antonio Brown and Josh Gordon going forward.
Because when you looked at Antonio when you looked at Josh Gordon, Flash wasn't overly used and overly involved last night, and I want to see if they start spreading the love around.
Or if they decided because it was the Dolphins.
Let's just really go heavy on Antonio Brown.
Or do they possibly switch like they did with running backs where different receivers are featured at different times? Because going into the fourth look like Brady was really featuring Julian Edelman, So it'll be a wait and see on that second question I got is Am I crazy to think, Am I crazy for thinking that the defense you're not crazy at all? But we're still a long way away from playing Kansas City? Um, if we could play them right now with no Tyree kill, the game would be so much easier than it could be if he's there when we gotta play them, I think it's what Week 15.
If we go into that game week to Week 15 and they have all of their receivers, it's a different story than playing them now.
It's a tougher game then, then it would be playing them right now.
But, you know, if we played them right now, we'll be playing them in September.
If we played them in December like we will be, it's gonna be a Gillette Stadium in play in Kansas City at Gillette Stadium in December.
Is very different.
Complain Kansas City, Gillette Stadium in September.
Obviously, the Patriots playing at home gives them the advantage late in the year.
You know, when you look at the injuries that around the league right now, Tyree kill Drew breeds Ben Roethlisberger.
I'm not taking anything for granted, and right now I'm not focused on the chief's.
We got the Jets next week.
I'm really just focused on the Jets.
Thanks for your question.
How do you feel about Stephen Gostkowski? Well, anybody who watched my live play by play on sportscaster, you know how upset I was watching that game and Stephen Gostkowski almost ruined a 43.
Nothing win for me.
You know, after the Steelers game, I felt really good about Guesthouse Key, and I really thought that he got his head street.
He made his kicks. He looked good.
He looked good on the fourth preseason game of the air, and now we're back to normal.
The problem is, I still don't have a solution for you.
I know a lot of you are tweeting me and you're tweeting outs, and it's time to cut Kostovski.
The question I posed to you is what are the better options out there? You know, the one takeaway we can get her.
The one Solis we can take is those Miss Kicks didn't hurt us against the Dolphins, but I guess the question is, what happens when it comes down like a few goal.
You know he's missed kicks in big games before, but and there is a big But I mean, he iced the game in the Super Bowl with a maid kick.
He kicked the winner Week six against the Chiefs last season.
He's come through in those big moments when we need him and at the top of my head and I could be wrong.
But at the top of my head, I don't remember him losing a big game for us.
I don't blame Kostovski for for the A F C championship game against the Broncos.
He missed an extra point on the first drive of the game, the first drive of the game.
The Patriots offense did absolutely nothing.
After that, the Denver Broncos defense had their way with the Patriots.
So am I confident with Stephen Gostkowski's our kicker for the year? I guess not.
It's not easy to be confident about it, but who replaces him.
And until we get that answer, guys, we can move on from him.
It's just not a simple is cut Kostovski.
When there's nobody to replace him, that's better.
We don't want to replace Kostovski for someone else is gonna miss more kicks or the same amount of kicks.
It's almost knowing the better of two evils.
Thanks Your question.
What has impressed you the most about the defense so far? To sum it all up, everything you know, everything.
Um, asking me that question is one of those situations where it's probably easier for me to talk about what hasn't impressed me.
Ah, it would be a lot of a shorter answer.
You know, it's really hard to pinpoint one thing.
Um, you know, when this team set up three points in two games I mean, I've been really impressed with the secondary.
They have true blanket coverage.
Stuff on Gilmore looks like an All Pro again.
Jason McCord e has been invisible because it hardly targeting him.
I mean, they stifled the run game.
They forced both the Steelers and the Dolphins to go to the air because they couldn't do anything in their run games.
And of course, you know, those teams couldn't make anything happen because of the secondary.
If I wanted them to improve something that would probably be get a better pass rush.
But they took a step forward against Miami, and it's gonna get better and it's gonna get better.
I mean, guys, this Patriots defense is easily a top three defense.
Thank you for your question.
Offensively, Here's the next question story.
Offensively, the team controlled the ball but didn't rack up a touchdown on the first half.
Why, that's not actually that uncommon in the NFL, um, the Patriots core to.
And, of course, he got them in a field goal range.
It could have been up 17 nothing going into halftime instead of 13. Nothing.
You know, it's also more difficult to score when the defense is more fresh and the Patriots were also trying to establish the run during the during the first half.
And, I mean, imagine this already.
The play calling by Josh McDaniels was very vanilla, that 1/3 down when he decided to run it on third and five instead of putting the ball in Brady's hand, that was establishing the run that was playing it safe.
You know, they didn't really take any real shots down the field this week when they probably could have torched Miami down fields.
They didn't play a lot of play action.
They didn't really show anybody a lot of, Ah, they're in control the whole game.
And, you know, and to me the first half of a football game is really like a like a boxing match.
You kind of feel out your opponents in the first few rounds and then sort of the end rounds that you go for your knockout punch.
And if you saw the Patriots really started bringing it on in the third and the fourth quarter.
So that's why I think, uh, thanks for your question.
Next question is, after seeing the stats as they occurred first, Miami is the offense success owed to the defense.
So far, the answer is yes and no, because the defensive stats can also be credited to the offense as well.
Um, what the Patriots are showing us and is what happens when both sides of the ball are playing well at the same time.
You know the Patriots offense, scoring a lot of points changes the opposing team's game plan.
You can't have a heavy run game, you know.
The Steelers can't give James Connor going.
The Dolphins can't get Kenyon Drake going when you're down by two or three possessions, you have to go to the air.
You know, That's why we hear Bilbo check talking a lot.
We wanna play by ahead.
We wanted to play by ahead.
It's always about playing by ahead.
It's not playing from behind because you play from behind.
You have to play to the defense's game rather than your own offensive game, you know.
And on the flip side, the defense hopes when the defense isn't letting the other team score, it's allowing our offense to stick to the game plan and essentially, both units, offense, defense, even the special teams.
They all feed off each other.
You know when the Patriots are starting a good field position or you're pinning your opponents, you know, inside the 20 it opens up the playbook both offensively and defensively, So I get what you're saying on that that, you know, because of defense is so good.
It makes the offense look better.
And of course, they scored two pick sixes, 12 points that were added on really 14 our you know, our was it 13? Did he miss one of those kicks anyways? You know, at least 12 points right on by the defense.
But they really do kind of work together.
Thank you for your question.
In my final question, answer tonight is when will Damian Harris in Jacoby Meyers get playing time? Listen, to be honest, I hope they never get playing time this season because if they get playing time, that means somebody is hurt.
And the last thing I want is one of the Patriot starters get hurt when they have this kind of role.
Um, you know, until someone gets hurt or one of the starters shows that they can't do their job, those two probably won't get their opportunity.
They're gonna have to enjoy the practice team this year.
They're going to have to get the reps in there and wait till next season.
You know Jacoby Meyers.
Best shot was probably if Phillip Dorsett didn't play well, but or the 1st 2 games source that has played very well.
I don't get any touchdowns in Miami, but he played very well.
He made I think he went three for three or two for two from Brady.
Um you know, Harris dealt with injuries through camp, so sitting him probably isn't a bad idea letting him stay healthy in case they do need him down the road.
You know, we don't also know what's happening to practice either.
You know, is Jacoby Meyers getting in more sync with Tom Brady and any of you who says he is? And yes, he is.
We don't know you're just speculating because the only sample size we have is one catch first a Steelers in an awful preseason game when the two of them couldn't get on the same page at all.
So we don't really know if things were getting better with those two.
So, you know, a long answer short, you know, maybe maybe never.
Deep down, I really have no idea.
And thank you for everybody who submitted questions for the stream tonight.
Some of these questions were really, really good and made me think long and hard about some of those answers.
If you want to submit a question, all you have to do is follow me on instagram, click on my story and find the question.
My instagram handle this at dp n Underscore Ray again.
That's at DP an underscore Rae.
I love talking about our new in New England Patriots.
And you know, when you guys were asking questions, makes talking about the pages so much easier because it means you guys care.
All right, so it's now time for a brand new segment here on D p n.
And it's called My gridiron rant.
And it's my great Iran, presented by D.
And today we're gonna look at some of the headlines coming out of the NFL, including two Super Bowl winning quarterbacks who both require surgery.
We're gonna look at the New York Giants starting quarterback situation and whether they're gonna continue to play Eli Manning or the Giant's gonna insert their 2019 1st round draft pick, Daniel Jones.
Yesterday, there was another Saintsfirst Rams game, and of course, it means another blown call by the officials and a developing story surrounding the Jacksonville Jaguars.
So the developing story here is reports are emerging that the Jags cornerback Ramsey has asked the Jaguars for a trade.
Ah, the request apparently came after they lost to the Texans yesterday, and from the early reports I'm reading and we don't have a whole ton of information on this yet the Jags air willing to honor this request. They've been taken.
They've been talking to teams and listening to offers.
At this point in time, we don't know what teams.
Ah, I probably wouldn't be expecting any news any time soon.
You know Jalen Ramsey.
We all know him as one of those guys who's often out spoken and often takes no blame for his team's losses.
But he is a very, very, very talented defensive player.
Ah, he's already been ruffling Feathers in Jacksonville over his contract, and it started all the way back to last season.
You know, he looked really bad against the Chiefs when he got absolutely torch throughout the whole game.
And But it's gonna be a story to watch this week.
It's gonna be whether or not the Jacksonville does go out and honor this and it looks like another drama filled week in the NFL, so I'll keep an eye on it.
If there's any more developments throughout the week, I'll probably talk about it here.
Moving on from that.
The who dat nation didn't get it good news this morning.
Yesterday after he left the game, Drew Brees feared that his injury was serious and it turns out it is Breezes tourney, Um, a ligament in his thumb in his throwing hand, and he is requiring surgery to repair it.
Um, losing your starting quarterback is obviously never good news, but there's two positives that the Saints gonna walk away with.
New Orleans has Teddy Bridgewater.
He's an experienced starter in the NFL.
I think he can do enough to help the Saints while they're waiting for Ju Breeze.
The second good pieces.
Drew Brees only gonna miss six weeks of playtime, and really, the NFC South is wide open, and Bridgewater should do enough to keep the Saints in the picture.
So the scenes upcoming schedule that Bridgewater will probably plays is there at the Seattle Seahawks were to a no.
But Seattle's a little bit of mirage right now.
We really don't know if they're good if they're mediocre at the middle of the pack.
You know, we still haven't really been able to separate the Pretenders and the contenders, and there's some people who think they're pretenders, something think they're contenders, so Bridgewater could have an opportunity of beating them in Seattle.
Their toughest game they're gonna play comes against the Dallas Cowboys, who were both sitting out to know right now.
Then they're gonna have enough C cell team in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for one and one, and I think Bridgewater could actually defeat them.
Then they're gonna have to face the Jacksonville Jaguars, who may not have Jalen Ramsey.
They don't have Nick Foles or starting quarterback there owing to on this season.
Right now, that's a winnable game for them.
Another tough game for them going to the Chicago Bears, who, you know the offense is the offense, but they have probably one of the best defense is in the league.
They're sitting at one on one, and then they have the unknown Arizona Cardinals, who I can't really figure out where old one and one on the season.
Um, but really, when you look at it and you look at those games, the Saints really could easily go down that stretch and win four games, and at the very least, they go 500 go three for three.
They're still right in the mix.
And then, by the time Drew Brees is scheduled to come back, which would probably be November 10th.
They have four straight games against the NFC South, which will be huge impact into the standings.
So the Saints aren't in that bad of a situation in the beginning, a healthy breeze back, you know, kind of down the stretch when they really need him.
The Pittsburgh Steelers, on the other hand, got even more devastating news this morning.
If it wasn't bad enough that they started the 2019 season off owing to, they're gonna have to do with the rest of the year without Ben Roethlisberger.
Rogers Burger, who led the NFL last season with 5129 yards.
He was injured in the second half against Jacksonville Jaguars, and he requires surgery on his shoulder, and it's seasoned endings.
It's season ending surgery, so they lost the quarterback yesterday.
They lost the game.
They dropped oh into, and it's really leaving the Steelers in a bad spot.
If the Steelers have any chance of making anything happen this season, they're gonna have to depend on their defense and they have a good defense.
It's just really been underperforming this year, and Tom is gonna need to get them going because going forward, it looks like Mason Rudolph is gonna be the starting quarterback of the Patriots now.
He came in after Robert's Burger went down on Sunday.
He went 12 19 for 112 yards, two touchdowns and an interception.
If any Steeler fans were worried at all whether Roxburgh will be back or not, he said today that he plans on honoring his three years left on his deal.
Whether or not that's a good thing for the Steelers will, I guess, still to be seen.
But we know that he won't be with the Steelers anymore this season.
And, like I said, it's really gonna come down to the defense on whether or not there have any chance of doing anything the rest of the year.
So yesterday, let's go back to New Orleans.
Since we re tractable breeze, we had another Rams vs Saints game and we had another blown call by an official.
Now I'm sure the NFL would like to get through one big game when their officials aren't a focal point of the story.
But yet again, we see the stains in the Rams plane and the raft botch a call looking to be honest, if I made is many mistakes.
As an NFL official, I'd be fired from my job.
Canned, done through.
That's exactly what it would be Stumble we're talking about right now.
We're talking about the game.
So yesterday the scenes were able to strip the Rams quarterback Jared Goff, their defensive end.
Cameron Jordan picks up the loose ball and he runs it all the way back for a touchdown.
And I'm watching the replay this game.
And for some reason, they blow the whistle and they call it incomplete.
Now I credit Sean Payton because I would have blown a gasket over another ridiculous call like this.
So the same challenge to play the fumbles confirm the Saints get the control of the ball, but they don't get the touchdown because the referees blew the play dead.
And I'm looking at Twitter yesterday and I'm looking at today and Saints fans air pistol pissed off over another blown call, and I don't blame him one bit and you can rationalize it any way you want.
They were screwed out of the NFC championship game.
I'm going to the Super Bowl and now they have six points taken away from them the second game of the season.
But here's what I don't get.
Even if the official thought it was close, let the play happen.
All turnovers and scoring point dead.
You can't take back your whistle, but you can let him run for a touchdown review and take back the touchdown and call it an incomplete pass.
And if you watch the replay, it looks like a fumble.
It doesn't look like an incomplete pass.
I watched it 30 times over, and, you know, maybe you and I, as a fan, can argue about it.
But this is a professional referee who gets paid to be there.
And if you think that that was, ah, 100% sure, an incomplete pass.
That's why you blew your whistle.
You are incompetent at your job.
I apologize, but you are.
The NFL has to send the Saints a fruit basket or something like sort of like a story we screwed up again.
You know, I get that the referees have a tough job.
I get that it's a fast game.
I get that they got to make the calls in real time and we get the benefit of replay.
But you know what? The players have a job to do, too.
And as fans, we watch on TV and we go to the games, We goto watch the players play, not tow watch the referees make critical mistakes, and you know there's one way to correct this.
There's one way for the NFL's officials to save a little face.
I wish that when this did happen, the media would be able to hold the officials justice accountable like they hold the players accountable.
I would like to see a scrum in the officials dressing room making him or her take ownership of their mistake, because if the player screws up, if the player misses a pass, if he drops a ball, if he misses a tackle, he doesn't have a good game.
He's gotta stand in front of the media.
The NFL forces the players to stand in front of the media and talk about how his play was.
The media hold him accountable.
We hold them accountable, its fans, the referee should be held justice accountable and yet again, the no fun league is in the news for all the wrong reasons.
All right, one more thing I want to talk about here, and that's the Giantsstarting quarterback.
So the Giants are staying really quiet about who the starting quarterbacks gonna be on on Sunday.
And you know Eli Manning.
He's played the 1st 2 games of the season.
It's resulted in them going, going to, And the Giants are now not committing to who they're starting quarterbacks gonna be next Sunday, and they're fully aware that not committing to Eli publicly will lead to speculation, and they really just don't seem to care.
But here's my question.
I gotta ask, What are the Giants expectations for the season? Here's what we do.
Here is what we do know.
Here's an answer we do have.
Daniel Jones is their future.
Whether or not people think he's gonna work out or not, it doesn't matter.
They invested in Daniel Jones in the first round.
He's their future if the Giants still feel like they're building.
If you don't feel like they're quite there yet, then play Eli.
Let Jones sit for a year.
A lot of great quarterbacks have sat there first season in the league.
Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, Patrick Mahomes.
That's just naming the three best quarterbacks in the league right now, all three of them sat there. First year's rookies.
There's no reason to rush Daniel Jones into the NFL.
I wasn't impressed with his mop up work in Dallas.
I think he fumbled the ball.
The Cowboys and the Bills have pretty good defense is you can't put the entire loss on Eli.
And if Jones can develop, the New York Giants have a dynamic running back into Guam.
Barkley and they could have a legit quarterback in Daniel Jones.
So why Rush? Um, why set him up for failure? Don't Josh Rosen him.
If you think he can, you can bring him in.
He can approve you, and he can make you ate and ate.
It's not worth it.
If the Giant State they're actually ready and he could take him to the playoffs, make him a playoff team, then maybe you go for it because the Giants and Eli Manning approved twice that anything can happen if you make it to the playoffs.
But if this is just a change for change sake, I don't see why you do it.
Eli Manning may be on the downside of his career, but Daniel Jones could still learn from him, putting him now already put him behind the eight ball, starting over in two.
If I was a Giants fan and I'm not, I'd want to wait until 2020.
Have another draft, have another round of free agency, make the team better, then make Daniel Jones.
You're starting quarterback because if the kid is your future and you look at this giant roster, they're almost there.
They're almost ready to compete in the NFC East, third or NFC East.
They're ready to compete in the NFC.
So give the kid a legit shot at winning next season.
Allow him to grow with a winning team.
