AP: Optimism on Sam Darnold playing Sunday

Recommended Posts

Sam - just throw the damn ball. Target Mims 10 or more times - unless of course he is double teamed - then target someone else. Just dont over think and dont worry about interceptions. Here is the play - drop back and throw to the player that should be open - its that simple!

Needs to be benched for the Tank. Healthy WRs + post injury Sam isnt an equation I want to see play out this week. Esp against a glorified game manager in Tua.

Absolutely. And you can add the Browns and Pats to this list as well. 

If they do not IR his ass now, we are ending up with the second pick. Maybe even two wins.

He's the 32nd ranked and dead last rated QB here in 2020 and will probably toss 2-3 INT's along with another 1-2 fumbles; 0-11 it is. 

I had never seen Herbert in a game before, just a few highlights.  But after watching him yesterday, you realize what a crock of horse crap we were fed regarding Darnold's talent and potential.

Yeah one thing about Sam Darnold was that he was an absolute fumbling/interception turnover machine @ USC and we as fans fell for the hype due to one Rosebowl performance against Penn State as a Freshman. 

Not only was he a turnover prone QB @ USC but even dating back to High School @ QB (as a converted LINEBACKER) he was an absolute fumbling machine @ QB. 

These were the schools who wanted Sam...

Compared to... Trevor Lawrence;

We as Jet fans were tricked by Sam as a prospect. He wasn't polished in HS and was an absolute NCAA turnover prone and an INT/Fumbling machine; he lacked a lot of QB experience before becoming a Jet too.

To be fair, most people were saying that Sam was raw along with the “special” comments. He needed the fundamentals (footwork/fumbling which Bates actually fixed) then he needed to learn to play QB, instead of street ball.

He needed the right coach and organization. He got us lol.

I still believe if Sam started over tomorrow with a competent organization and an actual NFL head coach and offensive coordinator you would instantly see the best that we have gotten from thus far (probably his first season before Gase) and then would progress from there.

You could make the argument that benching Flacco for Sam gives us a better shot at 0-16...

I think it’s a bad argument. I’m still praying they IR him. If Sam is healthy and plays with Perriman, Mims and Crowder- Jets are winning 2 games

I’m not a Darnold defender and I hope to God I am wrong. But we will have to agree to disagree.  I think Sam can play well enough to win two games. Again, I hope not. I pray he falls on his face.

He is much better than joe flacco and with all the weaponzzzzz flacco has played two good halves of football in his 4 games.

I am concerned as well. Tua has not played well, this will be a very close game, just hope kids continue to develop, and we still lose, but this is one the Jets may win.

Jets will have a better offense with Darnold and these WRs. People quickly forget Flacco was brutal before this current group were together. Look it up. Darnold did win 7 games last season. But Our defense will probably save the day

Cant say I’m concerned 

I’m not trying to nitpick on what seems to be an incredibly reliable and totally impartial Twitter source, but our last 2 games we scored 27 and 28 points.  How does that compute to an average of 31 ppg ?

Sam is going to come back and play well. We've seen this story before. O line starting to play a bit better. Full slate of receivers. Even Herndon starting to make plays again. 2 years in a row Darnold has been good after sitting out a few games. Here we go again!

Yes, but our defense is brutal. A few young guys that may turn into something, but for now, brutal
