Baldy on Darnold vs Falcons

Recommended Posts

This thread is absolutely ridiculous.

As a fan group we have been through Mark Sachez, Geno Smith, Bryce Petty, Fitzpatrick, and McCown, in the last few years and apparently its really lowered the bar on how we all evaluate QB play.

Comp % alone isnt indicative of talent, every 2nd string NFL QB can hit open players - Geno even had the accuracy and arm strength to be able to hit opposite hash throws.  Elite QB play comes down to throwing accurately with anticipation, so you can complete passes to players who are "covered, and having pocket presence to avoid the rush, and Sam is already borderline elite at both of those and he is 22 (any haters please re-watch the USC-PSU rose bowl game to see this kid's raw ability).

Sam cares about being good, so he will easily master the footwork, etc. by the time he is 25 - ie the EASY things.  We should all be optimistic due to the things that he can't be taught, that he happens to already excel at....his ceiling is top 5 in the league for the next 15 years (and I wouldn't even consider trading him straight up for Baker)

Nah. Im saying if you have a top 3 pick and your franchise is a consistent loser, increasing the odds of finding the most important position in sports isnt a bad move. Darnold's rookie season shouldnt have convinced anyone who's being honest that he's 100% the franchise. What's the downside? Hurting a millionaire's feelings? Missing out on a defensive tackle?

Im just gonna assume you are trolling the site.

You think the jets should have drafted someone like Kyler Murray after Sam was the highest rated QB in the league for 1/4 of the season?  That wasn't enough to show you he has the ability to be a franchise QB?  Did you see him play in college?
