Very few people not named Dave Gettleman are happy with the New York Giants’ top draft pick, Daniel Jones. But what’s done is done. Months and months of complaining won’t accomplish anything constructive. The moment the name was announced, an unfortunate reality set in.

Is it the disappointment knowing they reached for a younger, less-good Eli Manning? Is it the adult in a jersey? Or is it the fact people drove out to MetLife to sit in a stadium to watch the draft?
All of these things are deeply troubling.
