The Daniel Jones era for the New York Giants has arrived.

Two members of the Super Bowl-winning 2007 New York Giants took exception to the way the organization handled making rookie Daniel Jones the starting quarterback over Eli Manning.

Jones had 17 rushing touchdowns at Duke.

"Eli and I spoke this morning", Shurmur said Tuesday. "I told him that we are making a change and going with Daniel as the starter".

"I talked to (co-owner) John Mara yesterday".

The Giants have said since the summer that they were getting Jones ready to play.

"You accept it and make the best of it", Manning said. Danny Dimes will still get to work with the best runningback in football, as well as a lethal tight end in Evan Engram.

"Yeah. I think you give it a shot and worked hard and competed".

U.A.E. Says Attack on Saudi Arabia Is ‘Dangerous Escalation’
Iran denied a role in specific attacks, including bombing tankers in the Gulf and previous strikes claimed by the Houthis . He also said that Pompeo and others "will be going over to Saudi Arabia at some point" to discuss the incident.

The New York Jets (0-2), the Jacksonville Jaguars (0-2), the Pittsburgh Steelers (0-2) and the New Orleans Saints (1-1) are all dealing with quarterback shuffles after injuries (and illness) have taken out their season starters at the position. The only way Manning would play again is if Jones gets injured.

Sure, a lot of that has to do with the awful pass protection he has received since basically the moment he last put down the Lombardi Trophy in February 2012.

The New York Giants have covered 10 of their last 14 games as a road underdog. Jameis Winston is completing 59 percent of his passes for 402 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions. This move is not one that solely-blames Eli for all of Big Blue's many problems, but one that puts the team's long-term interests ahead of anything else. "Being able to watch him and learn from him is a huge opportunity".

In two games, Manning completed 56 of 89 passes for 556 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions for a passer rating of 78.7. Kurt started the first 9 games but was eventually replaced by Eli (a rookie at the time) after a 2-game losing streak. But the Giants certainly aren't complaining about two Super Bowl wins.

Manning played his college ball at the University of MS and was the No. 1 pick in the 2004 NFL Draft. But any team change would likely have to wait until the offseason, unless the Giants opt to trade Manning and he agreed to waive a no-trade clause in his contract.

The only drawback is that other teams might be hesitant to pursue Manning because of his salary. The Bucs are 1-1 on the year, coming off a huge win over the Carolina Panthers last Thursday.

Afterward he all but said as much, referencing his shoulder and foot.

General manager Marty Hurney and head coach Ron Rivera told reporters Newton said his foot was sore following the team's Thursday night loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. We've got good players who are used to the system.
