The third week of training camp and the first preseason game have officially come and gone, meaning there are just two and half weeks left of summer practices and slightly less than a month until the first regular season game for the New York Giants.
Week 3 of camp was a little less eventful for the Giants than the first two, having largely avoided big-time injuries and suspensions, while limiting camp fights and keeping everyone focused.
Here’s a look at nine things we’ve learned over the past seven days:
Daniel Jones has had some anticipated ups and downs as a rookie, but far more ups than downs over the first few weeks of camp.
Then came a Thursday night preseason game against the New York Jets.
In his one series, Jones was dominant, completing all five of his passes for 67 yards and an impressive touchdown to wide receiver Bennie Fowler, where the rookie caught the safety snoozing and made him pay.
It wasn’t a perfect performance, as outlined by head coach Pat Shurmur, but it was certainly more impressive than any of the other first-round quarterbacks and far more impressive than the many Jones critics expected.
The future looks bright with Jones.
