Earlier this week, New York Giants rookie quarterback Daniel Jones decided to take in a Yankees game in the Bronx, but the experience wasn’t exactly worth writing home over.

During the game, the Yankees’ public relations department spotted Jones in the crowd and broadcast him on the big screen in center field. But rather than being met with the same cheers that, say, Ereck Flowers once received, Jones was heavily booed.

Jones heard those boos. He heard them loud and clear, and he shrugged them off because he simply doesn’t care about the critics who will eventually become his groupies.

“I’d certainly say I’m a competitor and all those things, but I’m not sure I’m going to internalize it or really see it that way,” Jones said on The Rich Eisen Show. “Over this period of time, I’ve certainly had a lot of people bringing it up. I just feel fortunate to be in this position.

“I certainly don’t pay a whole lot of attention to it, but you are aware it.”

Rather than paying mind to his detractors, Jones remains centrally focused on improving each day and readying himself for the day the Giants organization feels it’s his time to start.

“I’m focused on what we are doing here and trying to practice as well as I could these last six weeks and show some progress. At the end of the day, I’m grateful to be part of this franchise and get this opportunity. I’m looking forward to keeping it going,” Jones said.

“I think everyone on our team is trying to prove they can play and everyone wants to play. When Coach said that, I think that’s what any coach does at any level in any sport. Rookies, veterans, everyone wants to be on the field. We’ll see how it works out.”

That sort of stone-faced indifference toward the vicious media and even more vicious fans will undoubtedly serve Jones well in New York, where he’ll continue to learn from the man who has perfected that same indifference — Eli Manning.
