  1. What the f*ck was he thinking on that play.
  2. This is getting to unbelievable proportions. I know that the Covid 19 situation has strained most teams, but this has gotten ridiculous. I have never seen anything like the last two years with this team.
  3. I believe when Losmeister is saying: "He's a below avg QB. Fitz is, by all metrics, an above avg QB. The MYTH is that he SUCKS as often as he is decent, when the exact opposite is true." Losmeister actually means the following: "Darnold a below avg QB. Fitz is, by all metrics, an above avg QB. The MYTH is that Fitz SUCKS as often as he is decent, when the exact opposite is true." That's the only logical thing that makes sense. It's true that Fitzpatrick is a fan favorite and everyone understands why. However, he's played in the NFL for about 15 years and hasn't made the playoffs once. If results are the only thing that matter (irrespective of the surrounding team) how do you reconcile that?
  4. Jetsfan80, since when has Darnold played under these ideal circumstances that you speak of? Take a look at McCown's play for the Jet's in 2018 (after having an unexpectedly decent 2017). McCown's stats indicate that the Jets QB job was a bad work environment was less than optimal. To say that Darnold has ever been put in a decent position is stretching the truth - IMHO
  5. Leave is to Losmeister (and Connor Hughes - for that matter) to complain about a pass that Darnold actually completes. There's nothing like a still photograph to provide a complete "picture" of a play. Again, I am not saying the Darnold is "the answer", but to think that showing a photograph of a successful play is supposed to prove a derogatory point is somewhat lacking - IMHO. I'm surprised you didn't show a still of Darnold's posture on the TD through to Berrios at the end of the game.
  6. I usually agree with your take. However, for the plays that were on Baldy's clip, I thought Fant (RT) did his job except for one play. I thought GVR (RG) was beat or didn't react as well as he should on one or two other plays. I am not commenting on the rest of the game, just the ones on Baldy's video.
  7. Maybe I missed something, but I don't think that anybody said that Darnold is better than or even as good as Russell Wilson. Therefore, making the point that Wilson can win with less than a stelller OL doesn't really mean much. The fact that an NFL MVP candidate QB is better than Darnold is not news to anyone with a brain.

  8. I agree. IMHO anyone who believes that replacing Darnald with people's definition of an "average" NFL QB would seriously increase the jets chances of winning based on the last 2 weeks have to be blind. The defense sucks, the receivers are inadequate (the Herndon drop in the EZ is another example of ineptitude) , and the coaching is definitely suspect. At the moment,, Darnold is not the problem and is not holding this team back. He may prove to be less than adequate in the future, but the rest of the team as it stands now is totally lacking.

  9. Phillyjet, I definitely agree with this sentiment. My point has been that the current state of the Jets is so bad (due to drafting and injuries) that it would have taken near perfect QB play to win the game against the Bills. Obviously, Darnold wasn't close to perfect on Sunday. Darnold might end up being the wrong guy for the Jets, but right now the Jets don't have the "critical mass" of surrounding talent to succeed consistently against good teams. There is no reason to give up on Sam yet. The games are going to be played (assuming no Covid outbreaks) and hopefully the Jets will get some of their offensive talent back. If you are hoping for a "Tank for Trevor" have at it - it's a free country. Me, I'd rather hope that the Jets improve and Darnold succeeds. If JD can get Darnold some healthy support without breaking the bank I would be in favor of that. We certainly have the draft capital to get some talent - although I have no idea who would be a seller at this point in the season. I don't know likely a reasonable deal could be made at this point.

  10. What you say about those plays being "inexcusable" is true. However, i see QB's make "inexcusable" plays all the time - and thier teams still win. Allen missed a wide open receiver in the end zone during the game. He had a couple of bone-headed fumbles against the Jets. I also saw him have an "inexcusable" fumble during the playoffs last year. Is Darnold prone to make more "inexcusable" plays than others? Perhaps I would agree with that assessment. However, those inexcusable plays are rarely the difference between wins and losses. If Darnold doesn't have those rookie mistakes, do the Jets win this game? Hardly. I will stand by my statement that unless the Jets had nearly perfect QB play on Sunday they would have lost that game. They lost by 10 points and the fact that they didn't lose by 17, 20, or more points is a blessing - and had more to do with errors on the Bills side than anything the Jets did. The defense sucked and couldn't get off the field. The receivers dropped balls in the first half forcing the Jets to punt. The OL in my opinion did Darnold no favors. He rarely (not never) had a clean pocket. If you looked at what Darnold had to endure in relation to Allen's adversity during the game it was no contest. Did Darnold miss some throws? Yes. Did he make a few boneheaded decisions? Yes. However, the hysteria over his performance vs. the rest of the team's crappy play is overblown in my opinion.

  11. That is what many people here obviously think. I am not saying that Darnold will be a top 5-10 QB in the league. However, the rest of the team was so poor that he basically had to be almost perfect to give the Jets a chance to win against the superior Bills (where QB's averages a rating of 80 last year). Most other QB's can make a myriad of mistakes and still have their teams win. However, Darnold - based on the Jets depleted talent vs. the Bills - could not. Although I doubt that he will ever be perfect in a game, a believe that we will see better results once the OL gels and the injured WR return. Sent from my SM-G975U using JetNation.com mobile app
  12. The original post just reminds you how unimportant football really is in the scheme of things - at least for us fans. As I always tell my kids, "No matter what happpens with the Jets on Sunday, you still have to get up and go to work on Monday morning". That's why, even though I invest as much time as I ever did following the Jets, I don't really let a sh*tty Jets outing put me in the dumps anymore. A very touching story. I feel terrible for the guy's family. 51 is definitely too young. Sent from my SM-G975U using JetNation.com mobile app

  15. SAR I - I remember you from the pre-Internet on the old Usenet NY Jets group. Unfortunately we are talking 30 years. I mostly love your posts ‐ especially the farcical ones. However, to compare a QB's influence on a team's result vs. a first baseman's impact is stretching things just a bit. Sent from my SM-G975U using JetNation.com mobile app
