I’ve known since week 2 that the Giants were going to need a quarterback this year. Considering I was only 12 when we drafted Eli, I’ll go as far to say this is the first time in my life that I’ve ever had to go through this. It’s a mind fuck.
Back in October I KNEW that none of these quarterbacks were going to be good enough for the NFL. I KNEW they’d never shoot up draft boards from mid-round to top 10. I KNEW they were all going to be busts. Now… I’m not so sure.
October me didn’t even need to see game tape on Missouri’s Drew Lock. The name itself was a dead giveaway. Drew Lock is just a JV version of Andrew Luck. And anyone that’s a JV version of a guy that looks like this
Is not a quarterback of the future.
Today me see’s this
And now I need him more than I can breathe. Still don’t need to see any tape either. That’s a leader right there.
October me heard there was a quarterback from Duke who was taking over the school by storm. “Yeah, I’ve heard of Zion.” I said. “What? that’s not even funny.” They, and you, said back. So I did some research, the guy’s name is Daniel Jones. I scoffed. I’ve heard of a quarterback just like this guy before.
Nooooooo thank you.
Today me saw this on youtube yesterday.
Mitch Trubisky 2.0. He made a Pro Bowl this year, and that matters.
And what do I think of Daniel Jones now?
Want him. Need him. Gotta have him.
The mental gymnastics I’ve been playing on myself are concerning. People aren’t supposed to change their minds this quickly. Most don’t change them ever, at all. Just look at twitter.
And despite being aware of the self-imposed Stockholm Syndrome, I don’t care. I mean, there’s no way I’m going to fall on my face for thinking like this, right?
P.S. Kyler Murray still stinks.
