10 things we learned in Week 4


The fourth week of training camp has come and gone for the New York Giants, and summer is beginning to wind down. Before we know it, it will be fall and the Giants will be bracing for a Week 1 battle against the Dallas Cowboys.

But before we get there, there’s much that needs to be settled in East Rutherford. And over the past week, a clearer picture of this team has begun to come into focus.

Here’s a look at 10 things we learned during Week 4 of training camp.

For much of the summer and during a Week 1 preseason game against the New York Jets, rookie quarterback Daniel Jones faced little to no adversity.

In a Week 2 preseason game against the Chicago Bears, that changed in dramatic fashion as Jones lost two fumbles — one on an exchange from center Jon Halapio and the second on a strip sack.

Jones could have let the miscues eat him alive, but instead, he channeled his inner Eli Manning and just moved on, finishing the day 11-of-14 for 161 yards and one touchdown.

“I don’t think he ever took a snap under center in college. That’s just part of the growing, but he didn’t panic. He dropped the ball a couple times, but he didn’t call his parents. He just went back to work and did a good job at getting us in the endzone,” head coach Pat Shurmur told reporters following the game.

A strong arm, accuracy, a short memory and poise. It’s hard not to like the entire package that is Daniel Jones.
