A Note on How DC Sports Radio Sees Sam Darnold

Recommended Posts

Was listening to local DC Radio this morning, and they (the hosts) were having a serious discussion regarding moving/trading Dewayne Haskins.

One trade idea they seemed to like alot was a stair up swap:  Sam Darnold for Dewayne Haskins.

They weren't joking, or making light, they discussed options, felt some were too costly, but felt the jets and WFT could "trade problems" and give each QB a new spot to try.

So when we talk about trade value, that's about the value some down here seem to see in Darnold today.  A Dewayne Haskins equal, or a 4-6th round pick level of compensation.

I think Sam is a bit better than Haskins, personally, but I think his trade value is about equal.....a minimal late round pick at this point, and a "well, maybe he won't suck somewhere else" mentality.

No QB is going to get "well" on the Jets not at least until 2023.

Darnold has not been good this yr for sure. I think he could be salvageable with a new coaching staff and offensive system. He was not this bad last year. Still would draft Lawrence or fields if available, no question.

No thanks

Would rather trot Darnold out again in year 4 over taking on another teams bust

Two wrongs (USC and OSU) don't make a right.

Sam is only a bit better than Haskins? I’m completely done with Darnold and I wouldn’t even be that cold about it lmfao. 
 

Haskins threw 7 TD’s to 7 INT’s his rookie year, got benched in his second year and looks like absolute sh*t. At least Darnold has double digit TD’s to go along with his INT’s... least’ Darnold has flashed a time or two. I don’t think Haskins has shown one ounce of evidence that he can play NFL QB.

Outside of like 2 throws all of last year that's correct!

I would eat a glass sandwich before I made that trade. I  guess they let any group of idiots talk sports on the radio today

A few thoughts...

1. Darnold is clearly better than Haskins.

2. That doesn't mean Darnold shouldn't be traded IF the Jets actually get their hands on a better QB.

3. Why on Earth would the Jets want Haskins who, at best, is a developmental project when they will possibly have a rookie QB to develop as well as JD's 4th round Backup QB project in James Morgan?  The Jets can't even develop one QB, but we want to put 3 projects on their hands?

GMs know the Jets aren’t picking up his option so they will wait for him to get cut.

I think a place like Washington is a very unlikely landing spot for Darnold, but who knows.

Clearly the people in Washington, DC aren't to smart.  

Or perhaps jets Fans are very poor at valuation of their bust QB's.

Sam is 0-5 this year, with a 58.4 Comp %, 912 Passing Yards, and 3 TD's to 6 INT's.

Haskins is 1-3 this year, with a 61.0 Comp %, 939 Passing Yards, and 4 TD's to 3 INT's in one less game.  And was benched permanently for that performance, despite it being better in every way than Darnold's.

As usual, Jets Fans materially overvalue their guy vs other guys based on emotion, not facts or play on the field. 

Haskins MIGHT suck, but so does Sam.  Unquestionably.  Hell, Sam is quite close to the worst QB in the NFL in 2020.

From the perspective of another city and fanbase lacking that Jets Fan premium mindset, this kind of deal looks far more equal than it does to Jets Fans still clinging to Sam having some material value beyond his salvage value. 

For most decent teams, Sam would already be benched for good here based on his play the first three years.  It's only our ineptitude that has Sam still playing, and the fact we have no real other QB's to play instead.

While Washington fans are coming up with poor trade ideas, let them know the Mets will trade Brandon Nimmo for Victor Robles. Same type of concept.

Darnold wasn't the worst starting QB in the league until Haskins got benched.

😀.These are the same fools that think Scherzer is better than Jake.  The only GM in MLB who would make that trade is Rizzo.😀

Scherzer is 36.  Degrom is 32. 

The reason Degrom is "better" is purely because he is younger and has more miles left on him.

Degrom still has to put up a couple of truly elite season to match Max overall, career-wise.

Oh, and win a World Series too.  Wouldn't want to forget that.
