It was only a matter of time before the New York Giants transitioned from two-time Super Bowl champion Eli Manning to rookie quarterback Daniel Jones - the move just came a littler sooner than some had anticipated.
On Tuesday, following an 0-2 start to the season, the Giants announced that Jones will be taking over as the starter while the team prepares for a road game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 3.
The former Duke Blue Devils QB was selected sixth overall in the 2019 NFL Draft - a move that stunned the Giants fan base as well as analysts around the league. Despite the Giants' overall lack of talent, Jones will now be tasked with proving he has what it takes to be a starter in the NFL, or else the G-Men will be in a similar position at the 2020 NFL Draft.
“Eli and I spoke this morning,” Coach Pat Shurmur said, per Giants.com. “I told him that we are making a change and going with Daniel as the starter. I also talked to Daniel. Eli was obviously disappointed, as you would expect, but he said he would be what he has always been, a good teammate, and continue to prepare to help this team win games. Daniel understands the challenge at hand, and he will be ready to play on Sunday.”
Manning, 38, has thrown for 556 with two touchdowns and two interceptions in the Giants' first two games of the season, which includes a loss in Dallas and a loss at home to the Buffalo Bills. He has been the Giants’ starting QB since he replaced Kurt Warner in his rookie season in 2004, and is 116-116 in his career.

Cam Newton Draws Comparisons To The Big Bad Wolf With Latest Outfit Choice
How would you rate Cam's Week 2 'fit?
Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton isn't afraid to take chances when it comes to fashion, and he has really taken things to another level to start the season.
For the team's home-opener last Sunday, Newton pulled up in a barbed wire-wrapped top hat with a handkerchief tied under his chin, and a t-shirt jacket. On Thursday night, he arrived at Bank of America Stadium in another daring outfit, highlighted by the scarf wrapped around his head.
And just like in Week 1, Newton was forced to address the media after the game following another tough loss - this time coming against their NFC South division rival, Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Newton, who is clearly not 100% healthy, completed just 24 of his 50 passes, and although he eclipsed 300 passing yards, he failed to throw a touchdown for the second consecutive week.
During his post-game press conference, Newton told reporters, "It's time for me to look myself in the mirror," which only led to even more jokes about his sense of fashion.
Scroll down to check out the twitter reactions to Cam's Week 2 'fit.

G-Eazy Blows Up Twitter Because Everyone Hated His NFL Halftime Performance
G-Eazy was trending on Twitter for all the wrong reasons.
Whenever you see your favorite artist trending on Twitter, it can be a scary thing to actually dive into the trend and see what's going on. Especially if their fanbase isn't that strong online. There are certain celebrities -- like Ariana Grande, Billie Eilish, Lizzo, and Nicki Minaj -- who will always find themselves in the trends. G-Eazy is not somebody that usually finds himself in that situation so when his search term started gaining traction last night, people were worried to see why. It turns out that people were talking about the Bay Area Greaser to voice their displeasure at his NFL Halftime performance.
Now that football season is officially underway, the league has gotten some of the most popular performers to take the stage during their halftime series. Last weekend, Meek Mill kicked off the festivities and last night's edition of Monday Night Football had G-Eazy gracing the crowd with his presence. The Californian's fans were excited to see the rapper on television but there was a large number of folks that just weren't feeling what he had to offer.
As reported by XXL, Gerald stood atop a Hyundai Genesis as he performed "West Coast" and "No Limit" during both games last night. The memes were pouring in after G was announced to be the special entertainer and almost none of them were flattering. What did you think of his performance?
