Giants replacing longtime franchise quarterback Eli Manning with rookie first-round pick Daniel Jones.Tate said on SiriusXM NFL Radio that he’s impressed with what he’s seen of Jones Max Scharping Jersey , and believes that for the Giants, the quarterback transition can be as successful as the one the Packers had when the went from Brett Favre to Aaron Rodgers.“We’re hoping that he can respond to pressure. If Eli breaks a shoelace or something, he won’t even miss a beat,” Tate said of Jones. “The good news with Dan’s situation is he is sitting right behind a Hall of Fame-type quarterback http://www.texansauthorizedshops.com/authentic-kahale-warring-jersey , so he is going to have an opportunity to learn some incredible tools that can help him in the future. So I hope it’s kind of like that Brett Favre to Aaron Rodgers kind of situation, eventually.”There are, however, some major differences between the Giants’ current situation and the Packers’ situation when Rodgers took the reins from Favre. For starters Cullen Gillaspia Jersey , the Packers were a good team when Favre left: He led Green Bay to a 13-3 record and NFC Championship Game appearance in his final season with the Packers. The Giants have gone 3-13 and 5-11 the last two years and aren’t expected to be very good this year, either.And, frankly, Manning isn’t as good a quarterback as Favre was Tytus Howard Jersey , and Jones is highly unlikely to be as good as Rodgers. The comparison may show Tate’s optimism, but it’s not a particularly apt comparison. Another Dodgers pitcher has landed on the disabled list. This time, it’s rookie Walker Buehler.
The 23-year-old right-hander underwent an MRI that revealed a right rib microfracture, an injury he sustained when he was hit by a 108-mph line drive by Colorado’s Trevor Story on May 21.
Buehler remained in that game and went on to make three more starts despite feeling slight discomfort. Last Friday Rock Ya-Sin Jersey , he was pulled after 5 1/3 innings when manager Dave Roberts spotted issues with Buehler’s mechanics.
Roberts said the start of Buehler’s DL stint was backdated and he will be available on June 19.
Buehler played catch on Tuesday to keep his arm in shape.
He has made nine starts this season, going 4-1 with a 2.63 ERA, 54 strikeouts and 11 walks.
