Think Gase is the right coach for Sam, he understands the risks and rewards, will let Sam be Sam.  Bates couldn’t have been worse.

Should translate to a dynamic offense all round - God willing. 

I would be surprised if we don't score some points. I'm thinking at least 24 PPG

That's a really good mentality to have when it comes to coaching and developing Sam.

When Bates took off the training wheels last year is when Sam started playing exceptional football.

See Gase discussed in a thread, jump in too complain about Gase and call anyone who likes him out.

Never would expected to see one of the first responses to be by Fidelio. LOL

How about you give the guy a chance.  What guaranteed sh*t of success did you think we missed by hiring Gase.  Enjoy

Really exciting to see Gase juiced up on Sam. Things just seem right with this combo.

Nice to have a head coach that actually gets excited about football. Haven't been this excited for a season since 2011 (coming off back to back AFCCG appearances).

Bowles was excited when he got his Gladys Knight and the Pips tickets..B)

I think Darnold is going to mask alot of Gase's coaching deficiencies (specifically as a playcaller), similar to what Rodgers did for McCarthy

This is gonna be a fun season

A brief breakdown of what you mean? 

You can basically look at his play calling in Denver and say well he had Peynton. You can basically look at his play calling in Miami and say well he had Tannehill and a group of back ups.

Seems to be a coach that molds to what his Quarterback is good at. If Darnold is the real deal, the play book will be wide open

Darnold has all the tools to become something truly special if his development continues.

Side note, Enunwa needs to stay on his feet after catching that pass during minicamp.  Darnold hit him perfectly in stride, uncontested, and he had alot of room to run.

I assume you were trying to spell "waist" here...

 

EDIT: Okay, I just watched the video and saw what you were referring to. Just ordered 3 more pairs of boner pants.

Less chance of getting hurt.

It is the right approach with Sam. He will always be a gunslinger and has a lot of Favre in him. He will likely always throw more interceptions than some other elite QBs but will also win games by himself. Most fans will love him, but Sam WILL lose us a game maybe a pivotal one being too aggressive and the fans that really are still in a defensive mindset and love QBs like Alex Smith and think interceptions and completion percentage are everything will continue not liking him.

Favre's first year as a starter he had a 64.1% Completion %.  Lifetime he was 62%, low for elite players of his era, but fine.

If Darnold is at 64% next year, i think we'd all be very pleased by that.  Right?  And we have reason to hope he will be.

If he's still sub-60%, that's not something to applaud because "gunslinger"......is it?

Who was the last sub-60% QB to win a Super Bowl (asking, as I honestly don't know).

Lets look at last year's NFL Playoff QB's:

Brady 66.2%
Goff 63.4%
Luck 66.2%
Wilson 65.6%
Rivers 66.7%
Foles 69.2%/Wentz 69.6%
Watson 67.5%
Prescott 67.3%
Trubisky 66%
Mahomes 65.3%
Brees 73.7%
Jackson 58.2%

Only one established guy under 65% (Goff).  And one guy (Jackson, a rookie) who ran more than passed at 58.2%.

Now, would you call all these guys timid?  Or afraid to make hard throws?  Of course not.

Winning QB's generally speaking are at or over 65% completion rate.  

That is where we want Darnold, gun-slinging or not, and where he has the talent and potential to take him.
