The New York Giants have an aging quarterback at the end of his career and a first-round draft pick who will sit behind him and learn. 

Or not…

Head coach Pat Shurmur says he’s constantly evaluating Eli Manning and Daniel Jones.  He then said the Giants are going to “play the very best player” at quarterback.

Via Pro Football Talk:

Giants coach Pat Shurmur said he wasn’t trying to be cryptic. But he left enough space between the lines that you can read whatever you want into his words.

Via Tom Rock of Newsday, Shurmur said that he’s “constantly” evaluating both Eli Manning and Daniel Jones, and that the one who gives the team the best chance to win will start.

We’re gonna play the very best player,” Shurmur said. “I know we’re dancing around the words here, but right now Eli is getting ready to have a great year and Daniel is getting ready to play. We’ll just see what happens. . . .

“We feel good where Eli is, he’s our starting quarterback, and we’ve got a young player that we think is going to be an outstanding player getting himself ready to play.”

It sounds like Jones is already outplaying Manning.  Let’s get a QB controversy going in New York.  Why not?  The Giants are already getting a ton of criticism for how their off-season has played out.
