    I don't get it. Why now? Why not let him make a few throws in preseason to show him off, or at least get some training camp tape? No room for him I guess when we have a rehabbing FA and an young one to break in. Feel terrible for that guy. Always a good attitude, and didn't get a chance to even see what an NFL football looked like.
  3. The insanity has to stop. The kid knows there are high expectations. He was picked #3. Stop calling him "the franchise savior." Stop saying he should definitely start day 1. Stop doing all the things that guarantee failure here and everrywhere. Jesus, how stupid are people? He's had two or three days of practice, a bunch of fumbled snaps, some decent throws. You know, like a rookie who has had two or three days of practice. Sam Darnold is absolutely nothing yet. Nothing at all. He's a glimmer of hope. Give him a chance to develop, and stop telling the media that we have Quarterback Jesus, savior of all, on our team. I haaaaaaaaaaate the hype. Surefire path to disappointment. Excitement and hopefulness and buzz is great. But saying already he's a franchise savior is a symptom of Sanchez Syndrome. DC
  4. Yeah, that's really all I am saying. I do not want to rain on this parade at all. I just want normal expectations for a rookie QB to be in place. In perennial winner New England, you see a team who isn't impressed with ANYONE until they truly earn it. That approach leads to Superbowl wins. Calling Browning Nagle "Broadway Browning Nagle" just sets you up for a fall, is all. Knowing the guy has only had his helmet for two weeks now, and having no idea what we'll see in training camp/preseason, I still say from my gut let this kid SIT, SIT, SIT! Different ballgame, different speed and level. Let him sit until he's more than ready. To reiterate - thrilled we have him. Anyone saying we're going to miss three friggin 2nd rounders is nuts. DC
  5. Think I'll go with "Mr. Smallpeen"
  6. Nancy, huh? What are you, a high school gym teacher from the 80s?

    Josh Rosen: Huge A-Hole!

    He'll be awesome in Arizona, guaranteed.
  8. Posted something similar, couldn't agree more. I see the same thing. A friggin' baller. He's gonna fumble and toss picks, but most likely he will do much more harm to other teams than our own.
  9. Showing a pattern or rule to how effective a player a FA acquisition is based on what month he was acquired. Like, are the highest-scoring players ALWAYS acquired in March when the big fish are caught? Or is there still gold to be found in April/May, especially right after the draft? And also, what about when cuts are being made in August? Are there many discarded players that catch on well with other teams? I wonder if there are many starters who are not yet on our team. DC

    I would love to see a graph

    Getting a strong "Dude, data's like, so lame" vibe.

    THANKS JETSTREAM!!! Wow, ha. Didn’t mean to explode so many brains. Not actually that complicated. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app

    Josh Rosen was Eli Manning , Darnold is Tony Romo

    It's "couldn't." "Couldn't care less" not "could" care less. One of my biggest pet peeves. Sorry! I know how annoying this post was!

    Holy crap, first minute or so of that Ohio State game, he looks awesome. Under constant pressure and still making great throws. Tough as nails.

    Let me tell you one thing: you cannot see into the future. When your team gets arguably the #1 QB in the draft, maybe sit out a round and save your negativity, okay? What's the friggin' point other than to bum people out? You could make self-assured, fact-based prognostications about how every single QB in this draft will not succeed: Mayfield: height, small hands, Manziel light, etc Rosen: concussions, no escapability, not tough enough, not as interested in football as other things Allen: accuracy issues Let's enjoy this until it's time to go searching again.

    The trade up by Macc was genius!

    Couldn't agree more. We will not miss those 2nd rounders at all.

    So does Darnold start in game 1

    100% no. Sit him down and let him relax and learn and watch. Especially let him get a good look at the 3 other AFC East teams 6 times. No hurry. No rush. 90 mill in cap space in '19. Then the push begins.

    You have absolutely no idea what you are talking about. Anyone predicting the future is an idiot.
  18. Absolutely, 100% yes some fans get off on being miserable. They like to punch down, complain, and whine and bitch and make optimists feel like losers. It's a pathology. Don't let it get you down. I am worried about a USC turnover machine, but excited by Darnold's upside. Coach him right, don't rush him, and we got a baller. That Penn St game still sticks out. He's a baller. Baker was the guy I wanted, and haters - watch out. He's gonne be Brees. BUT - welcome Sam!!! DC
  19. This is such a stupid post. Who cares how much money he has. Best passer available and smart as hell. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app

  21. I think that schedule looks pretty tough, with Vikings, Jags, Packers, Titans, Texans and of course an improved Browns team and Pats twice. I don't see the same easy schedule you guys do.
  22. Me too! Except I am higher on Mayfield. Fire and competitiveness like that won't be wasted. Very worried about his height and hands, but he's proven he makes plays. Smarter ones than Manziel, too. Darnold I couldn't agree with more. He absolutely is "a turnover machine from USC." What are we missing???
