Sam is lost. 

He doesn’t know when to pull the trigger, when to bail, when to throw away, when NOT to take a sack, when to run, etc...

 

unfortunately this is the truth

He's regressed ... he is questioning his decisions and is not able to just react

kid has all of the physical talent and skill to be a top 10 qb

his brain has been beaten down into a confused mess by this team having handled him terribly

go see his bowl game vs Ohio State...

who tf "beat him down at USC"? 

"

 In easily his biggest test of the season, Darnold matched up against Ohio State’s talent-rich defense in the Cotton Bowl. With his elongated release – reminiscent of one Byron Leftwich – and onslaught of bad throws, he looked outclassed, anxious and downright shook, finishing the game with two lost fumbles and an inexcusable pick-six during the Trojans’ 24-7 defeat.

Additionally, Darnold missed on several uncontested throws, a microcosm of a sophomore season in which his accuracy suffered and completion percentage dipped over four full points. Against Ohio State, he displayed next-to-nothing pocket presence while being sacked eight times, the majority of which should have been avoided by better pre-snap reads or throwing the ball away.

 

 
 

LOL ... what are you disputing brother ?

to me, he has never really risen above what he was in that bowl game vs Ohio state....  all the same traits exists NOW.

so, NO PROGRESS. regression means going backward. he has never moved forward. his brain works the same way it did vs Ohio state.

poorly. it wasnt beaten down, it was always just kinda sh*tty, like a bad student.

memory isn't good enough for me to recall details from back then ... but his college numbers as a whole were pretty damn impressive.

even in that game the final stat line is decent

I recall my big concern was over him having fumbled the ball a bit

I do also recall there being some head scratchers here and there ... but that was the exception and the rest was pretty impressive

then moving to his pro numbers

2019 felt like a small improvement from 2018

It's a pretty large hill you'll have to climb to hard to get me to buy 2020 isn't worse than 2019

guess i'm splitting hairs with you though

fact is, we both can agree his current performance isn't pretty
