Good morning, New York Giants fans!

Daniel Jones won’t just be handed Giants captaincy

Jones is the franchise quarterback. Is he, though, the leader of the 2020 Giants?

Alabama's Nick Saban on Giants head coach Joe Judge and second-round pick Xavier McKinney

Saban tells the Giants podcast that it is “no surprise to me that Joe [Judge] has gotten to this point in his career.” As for Xavier McKinney, Saban says “I think most of the things that ‘X’ is going to be exposed to, he’s probably done. They might call it something different. I think it’ll be an easy transition for him.”

WFAN’s Mike Francesa doesn’t buy NFL’s 2020 schedule optimism amid coronavirus pandemic -

“I don’t believe the NFL will start until [October 15],” the big guy tweeted on Friday. “But that is still very comfortable for the league, which would drop the byes and play the [Super Bowl] on the last Sunday in February.”

That would be Week 6 on the current schedule.

When will the NFL admit it’s selling false hope? - New York Daily News

Is the NFL selling false hope in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic?

Was the NFL’s trumpeting of an unaffected, 16-game regular season schedule realistic at all?

Was it appropriate that the league severely underplayed the existence of contingencies in the schedule’s creation due to the coronavirus pandemic?

And was it disingenuous and disrespectful, therefore, to sell New Yorkers and New Jerseyans on a Sept. 14 Giants home opener at MetLife Stadium when none of us can even walk across the street and borrow a screwdriver from our neighbor?

Or was the NFL’s course reasonable and justified because no one knows what is coming tomorrow and hope is better than nothing at all?
