NFC East news: Jayden Daniels’ work ethic, Giants to debut “Century Red” uniforms

Commanders OC Kliff Kingsbury impressed with rookie Jayden Daniels: ‘He’s intentional in everything he does’ – Bryan DeArdo, CBS Sports

Washington’s new QB is already displaying his work ethic.

Kliff Kingsbury has been a fan of Jayden Daniels for quite some time, and after his initial first few weeks with Daniels in Washington, the Commanders offensive coordinator may be an even bigger fan now of the rookie quarterback.

Kingsbury, the former Cardinals head coach who is entering his first season calling plays for the Commanders, recently raved about Daniels, the No. 2 overall pick and reigning Heisman Trophy winner who put up video game-like numbers during his final season at LSU.

“He’s intentional in everything he does, which I like,” Kingsbury said, via the team’s website. “That’s what we had heard about him coming up, and that’s what he’s been since he’s been here.”

What stood out about Kingsbury’s praise of Daniels is that it had nothing to do about football. Instead, Kingsbury lauded Daniels’ mental approach.

“He has a plan for studying,” Kingsbury said. “He has a plan for practice. He has a plan for watching film. He knows what he wants to be and where he wants to go. To be that young and come in there with that mindset is really encouraging.”

Kingsbury’s quotes should be celebrated by Washington fans, who have been waiting for a franchise quarterback for quite some time. While many young quarterbacks are talented, few have the mental attributes that are also needed to have success at pro football’s highest level. It’s early, but appears that Daniels has it.

The NFL is breaking a two-decade streak between the Eagles and Cowboys – Rob Tornoe, The Philadelphia Inquirer

The heated division rivalry won’t be in prime time this season.

There’s one important thing missing from the 2024 Eagles schedule.

For the first time in more than two decades, the Eagles and Cowboys aren’t scheduled to face off in prime time during the 2024 season. The last time that happened was way back in 2003, when John Madden was still in the booth and Cris Collinsworth was calling games on Fox alongside Joe Buck and Troy Aikman.

The Eagles Week 17 game against the Cowboys at Lincoln Financial Field on Dec. 29 will air on Fox, which will likely feature Tom Brady in the booth alongside Kevin Burkhardt, who grew up rooting for the Birds. But in another twist of the schedule, the Eagles first game against the Cowboys in Week 10 in Dallas on Nov. 10 will air on CBS, with Tony Romo calling his former team alongside Jim Nantz.

If you think Eagles-Cowboys on CBS seems weird, that’s because it is. It’s the first time the two teams have faced off on the network since 1993, when CBS still had the NFC package (Nantz actually called the network’s last Eagles-Cowboys game). It’s happening this season thanks to the league’s new TV deals, which guarantees CBS gets each NFC team at least once a season, meaning at least one highly-rated Cowboys game.

“They’re only getting one bite of that Dallas apple, and it’s important to our friends at CBS to make sure it’s a good tasty bite,” said NFL Vice President of Broadcast Planning Mike North during a league conference call.

There were several reasons that second Eagles-Cowboys game ended up where it did. For starters, the NFL tries to schedule as many divisional games as it can late in the season to make sure games are competitive as possible ahead of the playoffs. It’s also likely to be a big draw on that Sunday during a week when the NFL is stretched thin, with extra stand-alone games scheduled for Wednesday (two Christmas games on Netflix), and Saturday (a triple-header on the NFL Network).

Giants unveil ‘Century Red’ throwback uniforms to commemorate 100th season in 2024 – Nick Shook, NFL.com

Along with their jersey patches mentioned earlier this week, New York released vintage throwbacks.

Big Blue is getting a splash of celebratory red in 2024.

On Thursday, the Giants revealed a new throwback uniform to be worn up to two times this season, their 100th in the NFL.

Dubbed “Century Red,” the fresh kit is an amalgamation of retro elements found in their earliest years: pants and socks from New York’s inaugural 1925 season, a color-blocked, red-and-blue jersey from the 1933 season, and a helmet designed with their 1938 headgear in mind.

Those who saw these uniforms and instantly scoured the internet for points of reference likely discovered just how often New York’s now-classic uniforms changed in their early years. It’s a great reason for mashing up a few different elements instead of attempting to copy one set perfectly, especially given the many changes seen in uniforms and equipment in the last century.

The Giants effectively fulfilled a very clear goal with this uniform, which produced a unique set made for a centennial. Their tan pants, which they wore in their very first year of existence, fall in line with other throwbacks worn from a similar era (looking at you, Packers). The winged helmet might remind folks of the University of Michigan or Princeton, but it is historically accurate for at least a 10-year period of the Giants’ history (1937-1947).

The jersey, of course, will be the most polarizing piece of the uniform, but the Giants wisely chose it as the most aesthetically pleasing — and aggressive — option from the team’s first 15-20 years of existence. The red top separates itself from other throwbacks, delivering a massive chunk of blue wrapped around the midsection of the entire jersey that is only separated from the red by white trim. The equally thin, white numbers within the blue block are certainly different from anything else that exists in the NFL right now.

That’s the beauty of a throwback look, though: Blame history. The Giants will celebrate theirs with this uniform up to two times this season.
