Darnold positives from Sunday

I feel like part of what’s missing in this “does Darnold suck?” conversation is the fact that Leveon Bell has had 251 carries as a Jets and has averaged 3.2 ypc, which is a problem for any offense, and QB 

And what's missing in that conversation is the fact that Adam Gase is precisely the guy everybody wants tackling said problem(s).

this is probably the better way to put it.  JD isn't necessarily looking for a reason to move on from Darnold but he's also willing to evaluate Darnold objectively instead of just assuming he has his qb.

Douglas took the job knowing he had two years to look at Darnold and Gase and no particular reason to bet on either of them. We have no idea what his strategy for staying employed himself looks like yet.

Darnold's performance in Buffalo was the first and only time I've doubted his qualifications as a franchise quarterback.

I am still a believer, but I am stunned about how unprepared he was considering:

1.  The 1-7 start from last year and consuming himself to avoid that same disaster.

2.  The 6-2 finish and how that should have left him supremely confident.

3.  Covid which, while tragic, allowed him to have 3+ months of specialized training time with his personal quarterback coach.

4.  5 weeks of live training camp and no preseason games which should have left him fresh and feeling great.

5.  Better OL, better RB's, better WR's than he had at any time during last year's injury-riddled campaign.

6.  The media trying to humiliate him and his teammates at every opportunity since May.

You add all that up, Darnold should have come out like a man possessed on Sunday.  He should have been in complete control, he should have had that eye of the tiger, he should have been screaming at teammates on the sidelines.  In other words, he should have looked like a grown up professional and not a timid boy.

He wasn't a quarterback in the first place. There isn't any reason to think that any of these words were going to make him a quarterback.
