    Very good point, and I have to admit you are 100% correct, it was wrong for me to bring Darnold's name into the reply. 

    Not that it's an excuse, but I was going back and forth between two threads, this one and the Tiki and Tierney one, and I got a little confused with where each conversation was going.

    That doesn't take away from what you said being true, however.

    Well to be clear....I don't think it was "wrong".  it was just inconsistent for you.  Of course there will always be comparisons between Sam and Baker, Sam and Allen, and now Sam and Jones.

    Darnold is the best QB we've had since Kenny O'Brien.   I love how people still whine - we passed on Marino for him - if we drafted Marino and surrounded him with the absolute lack of talent Kenny O had most of his Jet career - he would have sucked too.  Watch game film of Kenny's 2nd and first half of his 3rd season - he was special and this crap organization ruined him.  He was sacked 40 times and hit hard prolly another 30 times during his 3rd season, kinda ruined him.  I cant count how many great throws he made in his career that were called back due to holding penalties.  Walton was a brilliant offensive mind, but he never tailored the offense to fit his personnel.

    I agree, and as I have said many times:  Ken has the same # of SB wins as Marino....

    This year? Baker played 6 games, Sam has played two.

    Baker is 2-4, Sam is 1-1, so nothing much has really happened has it?

    listen, I am not trying to argue with you, but what I have seen from you in the past are things like:  Sam does well, people on here say bad things about Baker, Allen or more recently, Jones.  Your response seems to be:  why bring them into it?  has nothing to do with Sam.

    so now this guy is saying how poorly Baker has played and you respond by bringing Sam into it????

    Went back and watched the game to see how Edoga did after reading that Lawrence had no hits on Sam. We can kill Macc for a lot of things, but this may turn out to be one of his best picks (besides Sam).

    This kid has GREAT feet and can get to the 2nd level faster than most OTs.

    In watching him, there were no "WTF is he doing?" plays you'd expect from a rookie. I'd say maybe 4 or 5 snaps where he "could've done a little better". Many times he'd mirror Lawrence deep and Sam would have the presence to step up a 1/2 step and all was well. What was also interesting was that it wasn't until the last drive did they line up a TE to his side to give him help.

    Another observation was that Shell didn't play bad when he cam in for Beachum. Had one bad play where he blocked inside and gave up a sack.

    Not sure if anyone noticed, but the Jets used a FB on one play during the last drive. The FB was - Jonotthan Harrison



    Now THIS is the kind of stuff I like to see!  Let's hope this kid works out!!

    and what is the deal with Harrison?  he should be playing for Kalil IMO.

    You don't think the Browns forums talk about Darnold? I guarantee if Darnold keeps playing you'll see a ton of his threads on their forums. Mayfield, Darnold, and Allen are going to be among topics of conversation on our boards moving forward.

    and don't forget Jones (where's that "rolling eyes" emoji?)

    This is where Darnold has just a little bit of that Tom Brady to him.  No, I'm not saying Darnold is Brady, but I've always thought that the one thing Brady is best at is making players around him better.  He's been turning average players in excellent ones, excellent ones into elite ones, and takes an elite player like Randy Moss and finds a way to elevate him even higher to one of the all-time great seasons by a WR.

    There's no doubt that Robby Anderson, Crowder, etc. all look a little better because Sam Darnold is delivering the ball to them at the right time in-stride.

    very good post.  as usual.

    Sam was terrific on Sunday. He earned it.

    When you are done taking your little victory lap, am I allowed to point out that Mayfield won the Offensive Rookie of the YEAR award, and a few OPOW's last year. Nice to see Sam finally get on the board though.  :thumbup:

    Darnold deserves this recognition he got for Sunday's performance, now let's keep it rolling. This season can still be salvaged.

    woo hoo!!!  some "Sam positivity" from the man who claimed his number!!  LOL

    but as for the ROTY award.....as MANY (and I mean MANY) midgets fans have pointed out to me, a certain little RB won that award......believe me, I wish Baker had won it....ugh

    I agree with everything you said except for this. Tru cannot keep up with anyone. The only thing he can still do, and do well, is play zone, tackle and play with a 10yrd cushion- which should only happen on 3rd and forever. I'm hoping Hairston is healthy b/c the Pats will attack Tru with quick slants, pick plays, seam routes, and really any deep routes. And any of their WRs can beat Tru doing that. 

    I agree.  Is it me, or does Tru look like he just doesn't care?  He seems to be loafing around, not hustling.  what a disappointment.

    I'm still worried about their offense, mainly because everyone is saying exactly this. 

    Everyone is (rightfully) noting that their offense has struggled (by their standards) and looked very pedestrian. But, the Pats have a habit of flipping the script on teams. 

    Also, despite their "struggles," Brady still managed to throw for 348 yards (with a 66.7 completion %) and 334 yards (with a 75.6 completion %) against the Redskins and Giants, respectively. It's not like they can't move the ball. 

    I get it, but key words:  "Redskins" and "Giants".

    Listen, Brady is still Brady, but man - that defense!!!  This will be a huge test for Sam!

    Sam isn't a rookie, didn't throw it 52 times, and 23/51 =/= 71.9%. Other than that, great article!

    on the rookie front, technically you are correct, but he still has not played 16 games yet.....

    but yeah, how do these people have jobs with wrong info like that???  I mean 23 of 52 is Off player of the week?  haha  with less than 50% comp?

  11. wait....he won Offensive Player of the Week?  Like for the WHOLE AFC???  But so many people on these forums said he "sucks", "5th best QB taken in 2018 draft", "2nd best QB in town", "let him go and tank for Tua" etc etc etc.  how is this possible???

    but in all seriousness, well deserved!  what a difference a QB makes!  Now if we can just get CJ, Herndon, etc maybe we can be somewhat competitive on Monday night.

    The most impressive thing about yesterday was how fast the ball was coming out of his hand. From snap to throw he was just whipping it! 

    Now we saw why Jefferson called him The f*cking dude! Imagine when we get a big #1 WR and fix the Oline. Play off & Sam can go snap to throw instantly. He had one play where he just shifted his feet were almost side by side & he hit Crowder on the move on the money. 

    The soft toss just dropped into Crowders hands & he's really finding his groove on the back shoulder throw with Robbie. I didn't think Thomas would amount to anything but if he can stay healthy, Herndon returns, he's gonna find himself open a lot. Then Bell will get freed up. He even got Montgomery involved but Dallas is stout within 10 yards of the LOS. 

    Jets played 5 pretty good defenses. Bills, Browns, Pats, Eagles, Cowboys. Sam would feasted on Eagles secondary. That game would have been interesting. After Pats & Jags, the defenses take a huge drop off. 

    I always say: "it's not who you play, but when".  would have been nice if we could have switched the Philly game with Washington.  I think even the Luke Falk Jets could have won that game!  Plus that o-fer against the Eagles all time still bothers me.  thought this year could have been the year.  oh well.

    I think something like 1 TD, no INTs and a better QB rating vs the Bills than any other QB over those first few weeks...


    exactly.  I can't speak for everyone on here, but I THINK people were expecting this "explosive" offnse from the Jets this year.  I remember reading someone on here saying the Jets D will be so awful, but it's ok - our offense will put up 30+ pts per game.  so of course you will be disappointed with the week 1 performance.  then we find out the Bills have an excellent D, and then you know....the mono....

    Sam go Herndon is going to be so reliable and pretty. CJ Mosley’s return is huge for us too.

    Im finally excited about Jets football again. I felt like the season was withering away along with my pre-opening day optimism of Sam’s development and the success that follows. 

    Pats week on MNF with players getting back to work. Wouldn’t want it any other way.

    you said it.  who woulda thunk it exactly one week ago today right?  amazing what a good QB can do for a team!  I was at that first game against the Bills....was so excited, and yeah the loss was a killer, but then the whole mono thing....

    and then he's out for a month and I don't know about you, but I kind of forgot how good this kid is.  

    now they gotta go out and prove it against the Pats next week.  do I think the Jets can win?  doubtful, but I feel a LOT more confident in our chances with Sam back.  I'll feel even better if we get Herndon and especially CJ.  but the point is:  we have hope again.  it was like March around here the last few weeks; no football.  glad it's back again!
