That O-line performance ups the odds that Darnold returns

I get the point and he was running for his life, but if you think he looked "pedestrian" then you didn't watch the same game I did... the guy threw seeds from all kinds of positions, made people miss and then had receivers not make plays on some of these incredible throws he made.  He literally made a throw as he was tackled and  stretch out like superman...to the receivers hands...but he couldn't pull it in.

 

 

Dude, that throw was unreal. A flipping laser beam and he barely still had a foot on the ground.

Turns out the injuries on the O-line for KC were the difference maker in the game.  Mahomes looked pedestrian with the revolving doors on the line.  And Wisniewski coming back from the scrap heap to play. 

That game ups the argument that the Jets would be wiser to use their capital to build pieces around Darnold for this year, including a superior offensive line.  They have 2 draft picks next year and could leverage those to get a QB if it doesn't work.  But judging by the teams that are bidding on Darnold, I suspect his upside at 24 years old with a good offensive line, 3 years of experience in the NFL, and a system to match his skills gets us much further toward the playoffs than taking a QB at 2 and starting over.

You have more excuses for Darnold , than an alcoholic .    The third year he was going to shine , but like the previous two was one of the worst QBs in the league.   How many more years are you willing to give him , before you admit he isn’t very good.    
 

Jets are in position to get a franchise QB, and would be making a colossal mistake passing on one for Sam Darnold( ginger-USC QB factory)  .   The Raiders will get more for Marcus Mariota , than the Jets get for Sam Darnold.

I agree. It will take us at least 3 years with a rookie to probably reach a decent record or playoffs.

Let’s see in that third year:

—FO let his best WR by far go for nothing

—Gase was the worst playcaller in the nfl

—Frank Gore averaged 3 yards and dust as our featured back

—his starting WRs first month of the season were Chris Hogan and Jeff Smith

 

And as good as Becton was he missed a significant portion of the season with injuries.  The rest of the OL was average at best after being putrid the year before

 

How did Sam not rewrite records backs with that?
