PFF says the additions of Jabrill Peppers, DeAndre Baker and Julian mean the secondary “could emerge as a strength” in 2019.

CBS chooses the “How long before Daniel Jones takes over for Eli Manning?” question, saying:

It sounds like the Giants are committed to Manning for this season. But what if things don't go well early and the offense struggles? Do they turn to Jones to get the future started? It would make sense after using the sixth overall pick to take him in the April draft. There have been a lot of good things coming from the Giants about Jones and his on-field work, but is that just lip service? Manning will certainly open the season as the starter, but how long does he stay there?

I am already on record wondering how the Giants will handle the inevitable transition.
