Gettleman won’t know if he was right until we see what kind of quarterback Jones develops into. What kind of quarterback Dwayne Haskins, Drew Lock, Sam Darnold or any of the other young guys the Giants didn’t select the past two years turn into. We won’t know until we’re down the road a ways, the Giants are Jones’ team and we know whether or not he is leading a good team or a bad one.Everyone can argue — civilly, I would hope — about whether or not the Giants did the right thing. All I know for certain is that quarterback is the most important position in football and if you have a good one you have a much better chance of having a good team. Last Thursday, Gettleman took the swing at finding a quarterback of the future that the fan base has been begging for for some time now. Today B.J. Goodson Color Rush Jersey , we have no idea if he chose the right guy. In time, the results will reveal the answer. Until then, everything else is just noise.Gettleman also went a little deeper with King in explaining his decision to pass on Kentucky edge rusher Josh Allen than he had with New York media over the weekend.This is why I wrote Sunday that Gettleman made the right decision. Whether other teams would have taken Jones before the Giants’ pick at 17 isn’t the point. I’m also not saying I’m sure the Giants’ evaluation of Jones is correct. I don’t know and I refuse to try and substitute my evaluation for that of people who have made a living evaluating talent and building rosters for 30 years or more. We’ll find out.Where I agree with Gettleman is that quarterback is the most important and most impactful position on a football team. When you are convinced you have found the right guy you do what you have to in order to make sure you get him.Eli 2.0Jones is often referred to as ‘Eli Manning 2.0.’ For what it’s worth, go look at the side-by-side photos and the accompanying background chart comparing Manning and Jones. Eerie. Really eerie.By the way, I’m asking the following question of those of you who really hate the idea of Jones as a Giant. What would really be so awful if Jones actually did turn out to be Manning 2.0? Two Super Bowl titles, 15 healthy seasons where he plays every week, more good football than bad. A borderline Hall of Fame career. I think any Giants fan would sign up for that. EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Rookie cornerback Grant Haley could not have picked a better time to be elevated from the practice squad to the New York Giants‘ roster.The Giants (1-5) are heading to Atlanta to play the Falcons (2-4) on Monday night.It’s home for Haley and he is going to see the women who inspires him — his mother, Dr. Carla Neal-Haley. She is a pediatrician Aldrick Rosas Color Rush Jersey , an internist and a battler.For the past five or six years, Neal-Haley has been fighting a rare liver disease, primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC). It damages the bile ducts and causes the liver to deteriorate over time. There is no cure. She needs a new liver.“We’ve been working on that, finding different donors, having people tested,” Haley said Thursday before going out to practice. “It’s been important to me to reach out and use my social media presence to help in any way possible. She has been my biggest supporter and there for everything I have been through. For me as a son, it’s only right for me to do the same.”Neal-Haley had open heart surgery in January and her condition now makes her eligible to get a new liver.There is a Facebook page aimed at finding a donor .Haley said his mother still goes to work every day, although one of her new jobs is finding tickets for Monday night. The family needs about 10 and probably more for friends.If active, the game will be his NFL debut.“With the family there Janoris Jenkins Color Rush Jersey , this is special,” said Haley, who also has a younger brother and sister. “My mom, she is excited. She is looking for tickets. She has been loving and supporting. Now for a moment like this, it’s special for her, everything she is going through. I am in a blessed position and I can’t be more thankful for the opportunity.”Haley, whose father, Leon Jr., is a dean at the University of Florida College of Medicine in Jacksonville Riley Dixon Color Rush Jersey , has overcome some adversity to get into this position. He was not drafted and signed with the Giants as a free agent. He had a good training camp and was in the final cuts. The Giants immediately added him to the practice squad, where the minimum salary was $7,600 weekly.He will make more than $28,000 weekly on the 53-man roster.Being on the 10-man practice squad was an adjustment after training camp.“I looked at the situation and you get to go against Odell (Beckham Jr.) and Shep (Sterling Shepard) every day, why not take advantage of that and continue to grow your skillset?” Haley said. “Once I did that, then it started being fun out there and normal. I’m glad I used that as a growing experience to be ready when my number was called.”Haley was at MetLife Stadium for the Giants’ home games and watched the away contests on television. It admittedly was a strange feeling after starting 36 of 49 games at Penn State. All he could do was root for his teammates.He took notes though and worked hard. Now he might get a chance to go against receiver Julio Jones and quarterback Matt Ryan, guys he watched on television when he was home in Atlanta.“Mom will definitely be there,” Haley said.
