The Jets are not going to pay Darnold his 20 

they are not going to pay Jamal his 17.5 

the real owner is out of the country

people call me a troll this is the reality of the team.

They live under the cap floor, hire mental patients at HC and people wonder why they are bad. 


as for Darnold all BS aside his fundementals aren't good 

his arm strength is good but not elite 

he's not especially tall or fast or durable 

What exactly are the strengths of his game? Running around like Brett Favre in the 90's and throwing dimes off his back foot 7 seconds into pass protection?  

What are his skills making multiple reads? 

Belly lives in his head

he's not really a fit for the culture or weather of the AFC east 

I'm not sure it's a model for a QB success in the NFL in 2020 

all bashing aside 

it would be nice if he played 16 games and kept his feet on the ground when he threw

that should be the base level for a QB picked 3 overall 

Not much to disagree with here. It is definitely put up or shut up time for Darnold in the stat department. 

I think Darnold's age buys him a lot of rope and cushion. The question is for how long. As happy as I was to end up drafting him over the other options that year, drafting a USC Trojan Horse QB is never ideal. 

People definitely have placed too much emotional stock into Darnold being the truth. I like the kid, I hope that he is as great as some here think, but as a Jets fan I won't be surprised if he is just another sacrificial lamb in the dark ritual that is NYJ Football.
