And I’m not saying Mayfield isn’t a very good pro QB and an excellent prospect whose game should get even better. I’m being as objective as possible too, you already hear talk that Darnold is “Carson Palmer in the pocket and Tony Romo outside of it”, you see JJ Watt look him dead in his eyes and with much respect say “you’re going to be a great pro”. This Kid is “The Natural”, and no disrespect to Mayfield, I’ll take Sam Darnold over him every day of the week. He’s made some throws already Joe Namath couldn’t make, forget about every other QB the Jets have ever thrown out there. If you can go to the newyorkjets.com website and watch the last video they made of Darnold. Shows him going back to shoot hoops in Southern Cal, nails 30 foot jumper after 30 foot jumper, as though he can do it with his eyes closed. Some kid’s father who coached him at baseball said he was “always winning the Homerun hitting contests”. This is a very very special athlete, Sam Darnold, that doesn’t come around too often, he can fire bullets if he has to or drop a ball into a tea cup from 60 yards while putting air under it, his pocket presence already seems incredible, put some decent teammates around him, not the bottom of the league garbage that’s mostly there now, give him just average coaching, not some of the most horrific coaching I’ve ever seen pro or college...LOOK OUT....give him better than that...it won’t even be fair for the rest of the league. Hey, I want Darnold to be the best QB in the league, I’m a Jets fan, and he’s the type of kid it’s impossible to not like or root for. I stated in my post how impressed I was by his rookie season. I just don’t get all weak in the knees hearing Romo or Mariucchi give him a compliment, and the fact remains Mayfield was better this year, by a wide margin. Compliments to Sam are fine, but did you hear Romo gush about Mayfield “playing like a veteran” in the Ravens game? He was saying how Mayfield “elevated the play of Perriman and Coleman” from bust status to their draft potential and “throws them open?“ My point is, guys like Romo are going to gush about all these guys, they’re elite rookie QBs. Depending on where you live, you’re going to hear Marriuchi talk up your guy. One last thing. I like the Sam hoops story, but again, they’re all great athletes, and probably the best 3 sport stars their high schools have ever seen, so not surprising. BTW, I really think that Sam becomes a better QB then a cross between Palmer and Romo. I think you’re selling him short with that comparison...
