Seeing the life drain out of Giants fans’ eyes as it was announced that they’d chose Duke QB Daniel Jones with the 6th overall pick in the NFL Draft is why sports was invented. Giants general manager Dave Gettleman said Jones is “the right kid for us,” an opinion fueled by Gettleman watching Jones play for three series at the Senior Bowl. Don’t scoff at the Senior Bowl–the G-Men have drafted back-to-back-to-back Senior Bowl MVPs in Davis Webb, Kyle Lauletta, and Daniel Jones.
Giants fans aren’t happy, especially seeing as Josh Allen, a Kentucky linebacker and certified freak of nature, was still on the board (the Jags selected Allen the very next pick).
In a social media poll that garnered over 6,000 votes, a combined 74 percent (4,078) of the voters who gave the pick either a “D” or an “F.”
The fury is real.
I found wayyyy too much satisfaction in watching Giants fans melt down after the pick.
Hey, the silver lining is that JJ Watt was booed on Draft night. There’s hope. Not that much, but hope.
