Something to ease the anticipation...or maybe do the opposite?

On point.

But what also fits so well with our team is his personality and temperament. He is truly a dream come true for a team that plays NY. 

I am so excited to have him play for us. He’s going to bring us a lot of success. I can feel it in my bones!!

That 55 yard touchdown I just watched on the Texas tape was insane...scrambled out of the pocket, bumped into his man, re-directed himself, set his feet and fired the ball to his guy, allowing the wide out to change direction and take it all the way in for a touchdown. 

Just masterful. Basically art in motion. 

 

Edit: it starts @ 3:18

Could he be any more the opposite of Mayfield?  I much prefer this approach.  No drama...no need to prove anyone wrong...just go out there, be the best you can be, and win.  We really couldn't have asked for a better opportunity.  Now it's up to Sam and the coaches to get the most out of the opportunity.

We couldn’t have gotten any better than this guy. Just the perfect personality and also such a balanced skill set. He does just about everything very well.

Some roooooough throws on that PSU tape, but you definitely see the raw talent. Something about that motion is a little weird, too. All arm, no? 

Definitely some rough throws there and I believe that tape was before his tried to shorten his release. Although he didn’t statistically do better the year after the Rose Bowl, I think the experience and work in the offseason from RS Freshman to Sophomore polished him and made him a lot better of a player.

Rodgers had a weird motion at Cal. Now he has the most compact, quick release in the league. 

Hoping Bates can work on that a bit.

Oh!

One more thing about that Texas game. It’s 17-14 Texas up in the 4th Q with only 30 or so seconds left. This has to be scoring driving or it’s a fat loss... Darnold gets blitzed on 3rd down from both sides, he literally JUMPS up and throws the ball over the middle to his TE as he is getting hit!! 

INSANE clutch time play.

starts at 8:31

There’s a picture floating around of the 2018 Jets rookie class, and Darnold is standing in the back corner of the group looking like a slob, which is awesome. He wasn’t standing front and center like it’s a Glamour Shots layout deal where he’s at all conscious of being a star. Honestly, the lack of headlines he’s producing is impressive. He’s not even creeping on an Instagram skeezer yet! 

Good Times!

Look at Phillip Rivers coming out of college. Talk about weird throwing motions.

Soooooo much room to grow.

Sooooo much potential.‼️‼️‼️

Sooo much ability to learn and process info fast.

 

 

 

sooooo many boners.

😂😂

I also love his basketball background, he played point guard and that really gives you anticipation and vision 

The kid played linebacker in high school, that is just so great 

I really like the the Jets aren't bringing him along slowly, they are throwing everything at him and he is keeping his head above water. 

I had a long catch today with my son and couldn't help but think about Darnold lol

Wait you can fix mechanics, I thought we heard here incessantly that either you have it or you don't .

Either you have accuracy or you don’t. Mechanics and foot work obviously tie into accuracy but with people like Hackenberg and Josh Allen’s case..they have no ability to put perfect touch on a pass nor anticipate where the ball should be placed in real-time.

Man that USC offensive system was dog sh*t, without Darnold making plays all over the field that team generates zero offense.  Can’t wait to see Darnold in a (hopefully) great offensive scheme, and see what he can, can’t wait man.

Think about this Lupz....

USC’s best WR went undrafted this year. Sam Darnold TORE UP Stanford’s vaunted Defense with sh*t stains for weapons...not once but TWICE.

Game 1 - USC 42, Stanford 24

Sam Darnold: 21/26, 316 yards, 4 TDs, 2 INT’s

 

Game 2 - USC 31, Stanford 28

Sam Darnold; 17/24, 325 yards, 2 TD’s 0 INT’s

 

.........with this sh*tty ass supporting cast. 

Amazing.
