April 25, 2019 - 9:21 pm


The Giants’ selection of Duke quarterback Daniel Jones has divided opinion on social media. Former NFL quarterback Chris Simms, son of Giants’ great Phil is not impressed with Big Blue’s selection.

Simms stated his disappointment with the pick and compared Jones to failed signal caller Dave Brown.

The mere mention of Brown’s name brings shudders up the backs of Big Blue diehards. David Gettleman and co. hope that history doesn’t repeat itself.


Meanwhile, seven-time Pro Bowler Michael Strahan welcomed Jones with open arms.

WFAN host Mike Francesa isn't impressed by the pick.

In 11 games for Duke in 2018, Jones completed 60.5% of his passes while amassing 2,674 yards, 22 touchdowns and nine interceptions. In his three seasons starting for Duke, the 6-foot-5 quarterback passed for at least 2,670 yards while running for at least 315 yards and three touchdowns every year.
