New York Giants owner John Mara would consider it ideal if longtime quarterback Eli Manning started all 16 games and No. 6 overall pick Daniel Jones didn't see the field during the 2019 season. He also cautioned to temper expectations on the rookie quarterback based solely off the preseason opener.
The Giants' record this season will determine if, or when, Jones gets on the field. As the story said, the Giants have been ecstatic about what they've seen from Jones since April's draft, even if it's what they expected. He picked up the playbook and immediately looked like he belonged in the spring, has played well during training camp and was close to perfect in his preseason debut.
