That's hard to do in 2020 NFL football. 

He's honestly worse than I ever thought he could be

Bad day for the Darnold truthers. Playing worse than Flacco with all his weapons against an inept team.

You can see that even the most die-hard Darnold people are cracking.

He needs a total overhaul. His confidence is shot. His mechanics are all off. If a team can sit him and actually develop him, he could be salvaged imo. 
 

But yeah his time here is done.

This is about right. He really needed to show something today with his receivers and Mekhi watching his back to break up the tank but he really struggled in the second half, perhaps feeling the pressure of needing to do just that. 

Wasn't helped by some bizarre play calling at the end of the first half but the picks were backbreakers.

Not quite at the "Sanchez is unable to receive a snap he is so jittery" broken but doesn't look like the kid we drafted. So frustrating and better for him and us to move on.

He was clearly a better player before Gase and JD.

The Jets have to take more than a little responsibility for that.

Was he?

The fans who still believe in darnold are delusional. He has sucked for 4 years in a row. His last year in usc and 3 years here. He turns the ball over, can’t read a defense and constantly under throws deep balls. Simply put, he’s not a good quarterback.

Yes, frankly. The longer he’s been here, the worse he’s gotten over time.

Is this where we point at the 2 games against the worst pass defenses in the league?

The guy was never good. He had some moves when people used to play coverage against him. His second year they figured out that if you blitz him he sucks. That’s all that’s happened.

Here’s the problem I see with that argument - He was better statistically last year (with Gase) than he was in year 1 (without him). It’s obviously fair to criticize Gase, but it’s also fair to put the onus on your 3rd year QB to not look like the worst starting QB in the sport. 

The reality is, he’s just never been consistently good in the NFL.

He’s never been good. I agree. Doesn’t change that he’s gotten worse over time.

Slow processing can't be fixed.  He's got the Mark Sanchez disease.  He's a QB3 in this league.  He cannot be salvaged, and will be out of the league by the time he's 28.

Darnold is fine. Better coach he is fine.

Nope.  And even if this was true, "fine" isn't good enough for a # 3 overall pick.

It's not really important at this point how much the entire front office, both past and present, have contributed to officially ruining Darnold. Maybe Darnold just is a flawed QB who will never be consistently good or better and didn't need much help in being bad.  All that matters is that he's not a good QB right now and the Jets cannot waste any time beyond this season to attempt to fix him.  It's a shame, really, because I really thought he was the answer, but the Jets have to move on from him, no matter where they end up picking in the draft.

If Darnold was a real QB... he would have won a couple of games by now on pure spirit.  Coaching be damned.

He hasn't, because he has no balls.  He doesn't inspire his teammates, the fans, nothing.

Cotton ball.

The problem is, was and always will be: making the same mistakes over and over and over again and not learning from it and not improving and not progressing and not getting any better.

Period.

Next question kids and girls?

Listen, it's ok to be wrong. 

I thought Darnold was going to be a very solid NFL QB here. It was obvious to me after a few games in his 3rd season that wasn't the case. I admitted I was wrong. 

We all have experienced being wrong about something. I don't get why people can't deal with being wrong. It happens.

And when the next QB comes in and sucks, what will your excuse be then? 

SD has had a bad season, and has had few real weapons to work with here, so until the coaching staff is massively upgraded along with the offensive talent, you could bring in brady/manning/montana and it would not matter.

The NYJ suck, but most of that suckage can not be blamed on SD.
