  1. This is so idiotic. Have you actually interacted with Sam? Armchair psychologist. Sam is naturally shy and reserved, he has a close circle of friends he's grown up with, played sports with and through all the media madness and being the BMOC at a school like USC, he made it a point to retreat back to his beach town to decompress with his friends and family. A few of those friends also went to USC, they would also head home. USC worked around the media availability so he could go home when he needed to. You people are so quick to label kids in this country, overmedicate and diagnose with your limited knowledge of the kid himself. i raised an autistic child- high functioning, plus I worked in the field, she had the best medical/psychiatric/educational team I could put together....her teachers loved me, I went way beyond what the public school provided. My whole life revolved around this child, so I paid close attention to all kids in the spectrum, Sam is nowhere near that. Quit labeling and diagnosing a condition you think you know something about, his mother is a teacher, she was concerned about his reserved nature as a child and had him tested, the outcome - "he's just shy".

    https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.usatoday.com/amp/988323002 Josh Norman raves about Jets QB Sam Darnold: 'He's putting it on the money' MIKE JONES | USA TODAY | 26 minutes ago SportPulse: It's the most wonderful time of year! No, not Christmas. That window of time just after Week 1 of the NFL preseason where we get to overreact about everything. USA TODAY RICHMOND, Va. – Entering this week’s joint training camp practices with the New York Jets, cornerback Josh Norman didn’t know what to expect from rookie quarterback Sam Darnold. He’d heard of him, sure, and saw highlights from his preseason debut. But that’s about it. Even after one day of practice, the Redskins’ star didn’t see anything particularly special in Darnold, whom the Jets drafted third overall and this week seem to be preparing for his first start (Thursday night against Washington).

Mandatory Credit: Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports GEOFF BURKE, GEOFF BURKE-USA TODAY SPORTS But two more days of facing Darnold changed Norman’s mind. “You go out here and see him with these throws and it's like, ‘That’s not so much of a college-level throw. He's putting it on the money,’ ” Norman said Tuesday following his team’s final practice against the Jets. “Then you go out there 7-on-7 and it's like, ‘Doggit, this little kid is not making mistakes.' He's really accurate! It’s like, dang! You try to get rookies in here and you're trying to mess with them and bait them and throw a route you can make a play on and he's not having it. It's crazy to see it at such an early age. Dak (Prescott) has that, Carson (Wentz) has that. ... He, so far, has impressed me, and I didn't want him to. I wanted to break all rookie's backs.” Norman did his best to demoralize Darnold. He acknowledged trying to bait the quarterback into an interception during one 7-on-7 drill in particular. “I kind of gave him some cheese,” Norman said before describing the play on which he planned to trick Darnold into thinking his receiver was open. Then, Norman planned to jump the route and pick off the pass. “He was going to throw it, then he pulled it back, so I was like, ‘You little devil. I see you. You’re working really good right now.’ I couldn’t bait him like I wanted to. He saw it and read it like a vet, and I had to tip my hat to him because he’s learning at an early age when someone is messing with him or not. I think he’s got the smarts and willingness. He’s going to make plays.” This is making news on a lot of different sports sites.

    Yeah, but this punk bitch is an experienced and knowledgeable football player. This should mean more because of who he is on the field. 😎

    Bucky Brooks AFC Preseason Grades - Week 1

    I could have told you this from the beginning.
  6. Girl, you are on fire! This is too easy....I'll sit back and applaud. Lol.
  7. I've been waiting for someone to point that out....Sam played great within the scripted plays, the coaching staff might have wanted to see how he would do by handcuffing him a little. When Sam goes off script, you get that spectacular play in the Rose Bowl when he and Tay connected in the end zone with that perfect throw and catch between three PSU defenders.
  8. 2 years, not making any predictions till then...too many QBs have looked great in pre-season, or their rookie year, only to fall flat on their faces and out of the league in a few years, or become career back ups. that's why you get your degree and save your money.
  9. One important thing as conciliation, you got your own guy, a guy who went home and told his parents he really liked the organization after his private workout, he is not another franchise's trade bait. He comes to you straight out of college, and eager to learn. It's not just about the money for Sam, he wants to make a home somewhere, his loyalty has always been unquestioned.

    Josh Rosen the One Who Got Away?????

    We do, with a fiery passion. One private, one public, and just 12 miles apart. I’m a mom though, and tend to view these players as just kids first, plus I like smart athletes that think beyond sports, regardless of the colors they wear. the irony is, although UCLA is in Westwood, it is public, while USC, private, and the wealthier school is in South Central L.A., and Josh was at the public school, Sam at the private school. fUCLA! U-C-L-A Sucks!

    I know several Trojans that are Jets fans. They all were praying the Jets would draft Sam. a little tidbit - for the last decade, NY is one of the top states that make up the 40% of the student population from out of state on the USC campus.
