    Breer On Darnold's Debut

    If that were a realistic option, I think it would be great in theory. But the reason so many are in favor of offering him up in a trade is that Bridgewater has no incentive to do such a thing, and you can't really blame him at all for that. At bare minimum he'll want to test the market again next offseason and, assuming he stays healthy, there will likely be a bigger market for him. The only way he'd come back is if no other team is willing to even let him compete for a starting spot, and Jets offer the most money. Both of those things seem quite unlikely. Next year will likely be Bridgewater's best chance to reestablish himself as a starter, so he of course has to take advantage of it. There's little reason for the Jets to not try to take advantage too.
  2. 100% this. The claim that Bowles refuses to ever give young guys a chance is a fabricated fan conspiracy theory. It was pretty clear to anyone paying attention, and without trying to push an agenda, that last year McCown was just insurance and they wanted to give Hackenberg every opportunity in the world to take the job. Looking back, there's not a single soul in the NFL that would argue the decision made last year wasn't the right one, as Petty looked horrific and Hackenberg is out of the NFL. I wouldn't be at all surprised if we've once again already seen the last of McCown this preseason, just like last year, unless they have the fear of playing any of these guys for too many reps, as some fans seem to have. That said, if I had to guess, Darnold won't be jumping straight up to #1 right now either. I wouldn't be at all surprised if Bridgewater gets the start this week (with Darnold perhaps getting a drive or two in with starters), and then Darnold starting in week 3. That would continue to push the narrative that all 3 are getting the shot, while giving Darnold the biggest opportunity of them. I guess we'll see.

    There is a disturbance in the force

    Haha, fair enough. Let's just both chalk it up to being the night of the Jets' return to the field. Although to be clear, I wasn't saying your entire post was mind-numbingly stupid, just that one particular part of it. 😁 But seriously though, I can certainly understand the mindset for the Jets to hedge their bets, and I honestly believe if the Jets had done any other combination of moves this offseason other than end up with Darnold, there would be a much greater desire by the majority to retain Bridgewater. I actually like Bridgewater, so don't really want to see him go, but I also know it's very possibly a smart move for the team to make. While you can argue about keeping him as insurance, the truth is that with the sole exception of Darnold suffering a career-ending injury (I'm sorry, I didn't mean it, I didn't say it, I swear!), there is no chance the team would consider making any serious investment in Bridgewater after this season. So that means, short of him being willing to settle for a backup QB job and pay, which he would likely have no interest in doing, he's pretty much guaranteed to walk after this year. So as long as the Jets are ready and willing to let Darnold play this year, and McCown doesn't get himself hurt, they'll have plenty of incentive to be willing to make a deal.

    It's one thing if you don't agree with a possible move, but the basis for your last comment is the most mind-numbingly stupid argument that could possibly be made. By that logic no one should ever trade for the #1 overall pick either, because you know... who wants to trade for Jamarcus Russel, right?!?!
  5. Cannon is like a modern day Justin Miller. He's seriously allergic to punts. Of course, the hope is Cannon will actually contribute at his regular position as well.

    It'd be nice if Bridgewater was willing to take on a long-term backup QB type deal. But he's not going to want that, so if a team is willing to make a decent offer, the Jets would be stupid not to take it. Because regardless of if Bridgewater ends up looking to be by far the best of the bunch this year, the Jets won't be willing to move on from Darnold.
  7. Giving Cannon the shot in preseason is the right thing to do, but clearly he's not cut out for punt returns. Oh well, he still seems to have done plenty to earn his spot without that.
  8. On a random side note, while the guy could never catch a freakin' cold, Becht has been pretty solid on commentary tonight.
  9. While that may be accurate... not need to be such a bummer, man.
  10. I wouldn't be at all surprised if this Jets preseason very much reflect's last years, and we've pretty already much seen all we will of McCown. I think there's a good chance we see Bridgewater get the start next week, with Darnold getting in some reps with the starters before wrapping things up with the backups, and then getting his own start week 3.
  11. Are you perhaps suggesting that you... can't wait?
  12. I'll admit it, I am waaaaaaay too excited for a friggin preseason game. This is amazing.
  13. Darnold really, really, really wanted Johnson to catch his first pro TD, huh? Third time's the charm!
  14. And Johnson isn't making the team... not that anyone thought he was, but still.
