If you are the coach do you start James Morgan any time this yesr


Recommended Posts

Question to all Jet Nation. At what time this season if at all do you start Morgan to see what he’s got or does Sam get the starts. 
Since I am really starting to waver on Darnold I would continue to give him the starts as the players on IR return but if he continues to play poorly and is still inconsistent I would put Morgan in the 3-4 weeks of season to see if he has what it takes to be a viable starter in this league and not just a career backup

If I am the coach I might.

But I'm not.  Gase is the coach and he's fighting for his job and still seemingly trying to develop Sam Darnold so that it benefits his future.  In fact, Gase was playing Frank Gore as much as possible last night, a 37 year old RB, while having a rookie in La'Michal Perine ready to go.  If that doesn't tell you that Gase is playing for the here and now, nothing does.

He is worth nothing if he is recovering from a separated shoulder (which he may have already).  

Darnold’s market value has already bottomed. It won’t go back up unless he plays better.

At this point start anybody. It is not going to matter. Can't block, can't catch, can't run, can't tackle, can't cover, can't coach so yeah why not

I get that Gase is coaching for his job but Gore isn’t the answer now to help him keep his job as he is way past his expiration date.  I don’t understand why Perrine isn’t getting most of the carries. The only thing that would make any type of sense is that his ankle isn’t completely healed other than that it ludicrous that he isn’t more involved with the game plan

Barring injury, once you bench Darnold you rarely see a team go back.  The Bears have already named Foles their starter the remainder of the season.  Trubisky is done.  And by the numbers, Trubisky has been a superior QB to Darnold.

I would certainly jump Morgan over Flacco on the depth chart as soon as possible, and put him in if/when Darnold is hurt.

You know what’s better than ruining 1 young QB prospect????
 

Yoooouuuuu guessed it! Ruining 2!!!!

Maybe Frank Gore can play QB then. 

Joe Flacco starting does nothing for this organization. 

You cant evaluate talent with players who you drafted sitting on the bench or inactive.

I’m referring to our sh*tty OL. You can’t evaluate Olympic swimmers by making them swim in mud.

I’ll put it this way.

If Sam is actually gong to miss time and we start Flacco instead of Morgan, I will be missing my first Jets game in two decades. 

I was at my sons baseball game and missed the first quarter, how many plays did Flacco run and how bad was it?

He only ran two plays and Sam came back for the very next series. 

But, there just is no reason to play Flacco, whatsoever

Good post.. I think since the season is a disaster - it's time to move to preseason mode now.  Kick the tires with RB Perine instead of Gore.. PLAY Flacco especially if Sam is slightly dinged up.  See what he brings (Denver paid him to be their franchise QB..).  Keep highlighting WR Cager when he comes back online because he's shown some things.. WR Smith too.. play the younger players and let's see what is there.  

Let's see who's staying on next year.  No sense playing players that most likely won't be here next year (Bell Gore.. see if you have anything in James Morgan...why not what is there to lose?)

If the plan is to trade darnold and draft lawrence we would be best letting lawrence sit a few games next year and letting darnold lead what hopefully is a much improved offense to rebuild value. A few flashes of greatness will make people forget about a miserable year with a miserable team. Honestly my prediction is we get the number two pick and this whole thing won't matter cause darnold will start next year for us and he will be better than lawrence
