In less than four minutes of game action, Jake Fromm almost threw for more passing yards than Mike Glennon did on Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys.

The Giants offense continued to be terrible with Glennon under center, but in Fromm's lone drive, he threw for 82 yards. Glennon threw for 99 in double the pass attempts.

Sure, one drive shouldn't be the writing on the wall for one's career, but it certainly has the Giants thinking about who QB1 will be this Sunday in Philadelphia.

Speaking to the media for the first time since joining the Giants, Fromm said he is preparing for the chance to start -- which would be a far cry from coming into a meaningless two-minute drill, as he did this past Sunday.

"I can’t control what situation you get in, Fromm told reporters Wednesday. "So, for me, it’s just really, what’s the play and just going and executing. If it’s a two-minute drive, it’s a two-minute drive. Let’s go out, let’s go execute and get points. Ultimately, the goal is the same. Go out and score points, but how you do it may change. For me, just understanding different situations call for different scheme. At the end of the day, it’s about execution and scoring points."

If Fromm gets the start, it'd be in a hostile Philadelphia where the Eagles are in the midst of the playoff race.

"I’ve heard a lot about the environment and for me, it’s just preparation and making sure everybody’s on the same page. Really, it’s just going out and executing whatever the plan is and just trying to tune it out the best you can and go play football," said Fromm, who did play at the University of Georgia in some similarly wild stadiums.

Kenny Golladay got three of his seven targets on the drive Fromm played. He also made a 36-yard reception, his longest of the season.

And it doesn't seem like he would hate the idea of Fromm getting the nod.

"He really just came in and made the most of an opportunity," said Golladay. "Things weren’t going well, so I think he kind of just went in there fearless really and kind of, ‘let me sling it around a little bit.’ He did a hell of a job."

Golladay added that it was cool to see Fromm take control of the huddle and take some shots in his NFL debut. He also noticed the confidence Fromm had, rather than the QB fearing the worst.

"There was no reason for him to go in there playing timid," he said. "It was under two minutes, there’s nothing you could really do that’s going to make or break the game right now. Not taking nothing away from him at all. He still came in there and controlled the huddle, like I said, threw the ball around, but just going in there and not thinking, ‘I don’t want to mess up,’ I think that’s the first step, ‘I don’t want to mess up.’ With him going in there like, ‘Hey, let me go out there and try to prove myself,’ that was great to see. I think that’s kind of what he did."
