The NY Giants have a new-look team in 2020. With a rookie Head Coach, two new coordinators, and over 25 newcomers to the roster, this is a completely different organization from 2019.
The NY Giants went through another massive overhaul in the 2020 offseason. After the disappointing Pat Shurmur era ended, Big Blue went through another offseason with more questions than answers and an abundance of uncertainty.
For the first time since 2004, the NY Giants drafted a QB in the first round to replace Eli Manning. They went with the unpopular, surprising pick, selecting Daniel Jones out of Duke at #6 overall in 2019.
Jones took over for Manning in Week 3, leading a signature 18 point second-half comeback in Tampa Bay in his first start. From there, he went onto have an impressive rookie season overcoming mountains of preseason criticism and he proved many naysayers wrong.
The NY Giants will not have Eli in the quarterbacks’ room for the first time since 2003. Obviously, the room will have a very different feel than most Giants fans have grown accustomed to. It will be different to see a second-year, 22-year-old command the respect of the room as compared to an older, more accomplished veteran like Manning.
Jones will return a familiar face in Alex Tanney, but the team brought in three new faces to add competition to the QB position.
Here, we breakdown the team’s 2020 quarterbacks and what to expect from them in a pivotal season.
