Daniel Jones gets booed at Yankee Stadium

AP

They’re not booing, they’re chanting, “Dave Gettleman, what did you doooooo?”

OK, they were booing. Fans at Yankee Stadium booed the crown jewel of G-man’s 2019 G-men draft class on Monday night, according to multiple print and social-media accounts.

There’s no video (yet) of Jones being shown on the video board at Yankee Stadium, but he apparently was, and he apparently was booed.

It’s not a surprise, given that Jones is the embodiment of the controversial decision to take a quarterback at No. 6 when Jones could have been taken at No. 17. Also, the fans still love Eli Manning — as evidenced by the hostile reaction when the team tried to bench him two years ago.

Gettleman specifically wanted a quarterback with the mental toughness to survive and thrive in New York, and Monday night’s experience is one example of what Jones will be facing until he survives and thrives on the field.

The rookie also can take some solace in the fact that, two years ago, Chicagoans booed Mitchell Trubisky at a Bulls game. They surely wouldn’t boo him now. Maybe, in 2021, New Yorkers will have that same attitude toward Jones.

  1. So the NFL Draft process is like the college recruiting process in which players decide which team they’d like to play for? No? Then why boo the kid for being selected by a team that he probably doesn’t even wanna play for in a city nobody really wants to live in or play in? I hope there is video and I hope they play it at this kid’s HOF induction in 20 years…..after he’s been traded to another team. πŸ˜‰

  2. Typical moronic NY fans, give the kid a chance and then if he doesn’t pan out then you can boo him, you never know he could be a good q.b.

    signed, Cowboys fan.

  3. Some fans booed when the Colts drafted Peyton Manning because they wanted Ryan Leaf, and they also booed Andrew Luck because they preferred RGIII. Fans are great, aren’t they?

  4. He plays in New Jersey and will probably live in a nice suburb not The Bronx NY. Most of the fans watching him play will be from other nice suburbs in NJ and NY. The crowd that booed him at Yankee Stadium will most likely only watch him play from a sports bar so no worries.

  5. Heck, I love to hate the Giants, and even I have to ask that you not unfairly insult them by suggesting that their reaction to Daniel Jones is about their love for Eli Manning. Since it apparently requires explanation, the fans revolted two years ago not because Manning was benched, but because he was benched for GENO SMITH. And the negative Jones reaction is about the fans believing the young QB wasn’t remotely worth a top draft pick.

  6. ” the controversial decision to take a quarterback at No. 6 when Jones could have been taken at No. 17. ”
    Was PFT in NFL war rooms or something, how could they possibly know that?

  7. New Yorkers are idiots anyway. They vote for lousy policies, Clinton, and DeBlasio. Stupid.

  8. “Sports fans seem to be overwhelmingly pessimists.”

    That because only about 3% (1/32) of them are going to be happy with how the upcoming season goes.

  9. When McNabb got boo’d at the 99 draft. Eagle fans were considered lows for it. Matter of fact, it was Giant fans who said it. McNabb ne er got over it. Im in the minority but I think Jones will be good.

  10. Boo the Giants for the huge reach but don’t boo the kid who was selected through no fault of his own.

  11. new york fans are dumbasses anyway. probably loaded up on piss beer when they booed him. yall will witness the great one in daniel jones.

    reminds me of rock appreciattion niht when goldberg made his wwe debut.

  12. Will be the same bunch of fans that will jump on the Jones bandwagon if he leads the Giants to a couple wins. Typical NY talk radio… Vinny from the Bronx wants to talk Giants football… “Yo, thanks for taking my call. First time long time. Just want to say that Jones is da freaking best. I knew when we drafted him he was a winner”

    Fans can be clueless… NY fans are the worst. booing someone before they have even stepped on the field.

  13. Can you blame them? Eli is coming off such a strong campaign of throwing himself onto the turf every other play before making his trademark “my diaper stinks” face.

  14. Why are people in NY area so classless? Daniel Jones did not draft himself. He, like every other draftee has absolutely no control over which team picks him. Don’t blame the kid. You are already giving a 21 year old a complex before he ever throws a pass. Come on people. Give the kid a break. You should be welcoming him with enthusiasm since he is a Giant now. If he turns out to be good, then you will be cheering him to lead your team.

    The same people that voted for Bill DeBlasio, of course

    actually it’s the trump supporters that are of the loudmouth bully type, so it is more likely to be them.

  16. If it was booing, it was most likely Trump supporters. If he was physically assaulted or threatened, it would be the typical Hillary/Bernie low-life mob.

    Projection is a mental disorder just like delusion and liberalism.

  18. Real classy…Glad Giants fans are so open minded. Wonder what you’ll be saying in November when you’re eliminated from the playoffs again.

  19. Again. Nothing to do with Jones. They are booing the pick . He would have been there at 17. They passed on Josh Allen who is a game changing pass rusher. They could have had BOTH. Not to mention Gentlemen gutted their defense last year. He clearly has no idea what he is doing.

  20. So if he’s as tough as the reason Gettleman said he drafted him for this won’t bother him at all.
