Pat Shurmur has believed that Daniel Jones was the right quarterback for him and his offense since long before the Giants took him with the sixth overall pick in the draft. He's loved everything about him: His arm, his mobility, his unshakeable demeanor.
Now all Shurmur has to do is convince the Giants that he's the right coach for Jones.
So far, so good, of course, after the 22-year-old rookie's impressive debut in the Giants' come-from-behind, 32-31 win in Tampa on Sunday. Jones did everything anyone could have expected, throwing for 336 yards, making plays on the run, and running for two touchdowns too. And Shurmur seemed unleashed, running what might have been the most creative offensive scheme he's used in his 19 games in New York.
