Giants Have No Plans To Bench Daniel Jones

Oct 22, 2019 9:00 AM

The New York Giants have lost three straight games, but Pat Shurmur has no plans to bench Daniel Jones.

"No," Shurmur said when asked Monday if he would consider making a switch at quarterback. "I think Daniel is going to learn from everything that's going on. Just like all the other rookies and their playing, they're going to learn from the things that happen. But you have to learn and you have to win games, and I'm well aware of that. I'm totally well aware of that."

Through six games (five starts), Jones has turned the ball over 13 times, with seven interceptions and six fumbles.

He had eight total touchdowns (six passing) this year and has thrown for 1,144 yards at a 61.1 completion percentage with a 75.0 QB rating.

"Certainly, ball security is primary, especially for the quarterback. He got it swatted out of his hand on a screen. He was trying to hold off, Saquon [Barkley] popped a little bit late. But generally speaking, yeah, he has to secure the ball better," Shurmur said. "I think as you study quarterbacks, they all have issues at times. But it's certainly something that we've got to get fixed."

Giants Not Considering Switching Back From Daniel Jones To Eli Manning

Oct 21, 2019 1:17 PM

Pat Shurmur was asked if the New York Giants are considering making a quarterback change following a disappointing performance in Week 7 by Daniel Jones.

Jones replaced Eli Manning earlier in the season and the Giants won two in a row, but have now lost three in a row.

“No. I think Daniel’s going to learn from everything that’s going on,” Shurmur said, “Just like all the other rookies that are playing are going to learn from the things that happen. But you have to learn and you have to win games. I’m well aware of that. Totally well aware of that.”

Saquon Barkley Unlikely To Face Patriots

Sitting Barkley gives him another 10 days to rehab until the Giants face the Arizona Cardinals in Week 7.

Saquon Barkley: I'm Not Out For The Season

Sep 23, 2019 9:40 AM

Saquon Barkley left Sunday's New York Giants-Tampa Bay Buccaneers game with an ankle sprain.

Barkley is scheduled to undergo a number of tests on Monday. The Giants don't yet know how long the running back will be out, but he's confident he'll return.

"I'm not out for the season," Barkley said. "I'm going to do whatever I can to get back as quickly as possible. Not for myself, but for my team. That's what I continue to think about. I caught myself getting a little upset on the sideline just because I wasn't able to be out there with those guys."

Landon Collins Calls Dave Gettleman 'A Liar'

Sep 19, 2019 9:42 AM

Landon Collins, now a safety with the Washington Redskins, says no player should trust Dave Gettleman.

Collins wasn't offered a contract by the New York Giants this offseason.

"No dignity at all," Collins said of the Giants' general manager. "I didn't know what was going on. He's a liar. He lied to everybody. So that's a man I do not trust. I would hope nobody else would, too."

Collins said Gettleman never talked to him during the process of leaving, which is familiar to his current teammate Josh Norman. Gettleman was the GM of the Carolina Panthers when he abruptly pulled the franchise tag from the cornerback.

"When you look at that, it's full of [expletive]," Norman said. "And that's what I feel about the situation and him. If you really want to be honest, every time I see him, I really want to like smash their face in the grass. That’s how I really feel about it."

Eli Manning Not Receiving Any Trade Interest

Sep 18, 2019 1:33 PM

While Eli Manning has a no-trade clause in his contract with the New York Giants, the bigger issue on a potential trade is a lack of interest from other teams.

At this point, there is no interest from rival teams on trading for Manning.

The Giants very well may have been the last team willing to give Manning an opportunity to play.
