Honestly, the Jets did Sam dirty. Sam Darnold was doomed by poor front office decisions. 

He was drafted by GM who was already on the hot seat. Mac should have been fired along with Bowles. 

The Jets make this decision even worse by bringing in Adam Gase who has been a complete disaster. They brought in a QB who cares more about his own unproven system instead of adapting to his player's strength. We are in year 3, and the Jets have never had a coach that plays to his strengths. Darnold greatest asset is his improvisational skills outside the pocket. Unfortunately, Adam Gase is calling plays like he has Peyton Manning behind center.

Now the Jets have a New GM in Joe Douglas who is not tied to the coach or QB. This is why Douglas appears to be punting on the year and seems to surround him with unproven cheap talent until he can get his own guys.

You can tell Darnold no longer trusts his pocket even when it is clean. He has been scared from years of bad O-line play. Darnold also feels forced to make plays because nobody else on the team can. He doesn't have someone he can trust. Just look at Josh Allen's relationship with Stefon Diggs and how much he trusts him even when covered. Sam Darnold never had anything close to that.

This isn't even hindsight. Go check my history since I joined this board. I said Darnold was set up for failure before the season because the GM was no longer tied to Darnold's success.

The Jets did everything in their power to make Sam feel uncomfortable
