The real reason here to be excited is that Jones threw harder and much, much more accurately than I ever saw him throw at Duke. That's not at all what I expected to see. Granted, we can't put the kid in Canton after a single series in the preseason, and anyway, it really helps to have an O-Line that protects and a legit play-action passing game. Even with all of that, there are still reasons to be excited here.
What a world!

Eh. I'm gonna need more shit-talking than this from my New York quarterback, especially with all the haters in New York, of which I've personally been the loudest one.
