I don't think it makes sense to swap Jones in until after we play the Patriots.
The powers that be owe it to Eli to let him get some games in with Shepherd and Tate.
Shepard and Tate aren't going to do much to change the end result imo. I don't even blame Eli. The biggest issue is the defense. I want Jones to play as many games as possible. Suppose he's a bust. We need to find that out as soon as possible if he's the answer.
I don't think anyone running the Giants is going to declare DJ a bust after 1 year or draft another QB. Mara would have to clean house again before the draft for that to happen.
I'm not all that optimistic, but the next 2 games are winnable. If we at least split, then I don't think we see DJ until we play the Lions, at the earliest.
I'd be shocked if they put Jones in at Foxborough as a rookie.
