You can't really compare gingers to blonds.  

Okay, two things here. 1) Phil Simms was drafted in the 1970s. 2) This argument is supposed to be significant because it suggests that Darnold will miss the entire 2021 season, barely play a

QBs we're not overly protected during Simms' career. These INTs are despicable, especially in today's QB friendly environment.

It has noting to do with the 80's game.  The whole point is that he was able to turn his career around.  

 

Of course it matters that it's the 80s.

1) Because you need to go back that far to try to find a relevant example and

2) Because the likelihood of a dramatic improvement in play is less likely now, in an era where guys come in and succeed immediately.

One more time, the point is a QB after a bad period can turn it around, as Simms did.  

The idea that passing is easier today, that defenses are limited in what they can do somehow translates into Darnold cant turn it around like Simms did make 0 sense.  

And to me its not a matter of going back to any time or era to find a similar scenario.  I've never heard of or can come up with a similar situation where a top ranked QB was drafted top 3 in a draft and then given an OL on the level Sam's had, the shltty WRs hes been given, the group of RBs and most importantly the useless CS hes been given to develop his talents.  

Find me a single comparable situation.  Then we can discuss why no one else has turned it around in our era

A Peterson, Emmitt Smith, Edgerrin James, Marshall Faulk, Marcus Allen, Dorsett, LT, Bo, W Payton, 5 years of E George, CuMar, T Davis before the injury and the best of them all Jim Brown.

Can add a lot more really productive backs like The Bus, Riggins etc

Not as hard as naming just a few of the greats I've watched

Sam seems to always throw off his back foot.  Almost like he  is afraid to step into his throws.

Well that's where the ghosts are.

You are correct that the excuse making for Sam Darnold is literally unprecedented.

One more time, people aren't saying that Sam becoming a good NFL QB one day is physically impossible, what we are saying is that it is unlikely to happen. This is based on the fact that there are so few examples of guys becoming perennially above average QBs after 3 initial seasons of bottom tier QB play. 

For the people who want to stick with Sam as the 4th year starter, it's not enough to say that Sam could be good one day, you have to tell us why you think it is likely that he will be a good QB that we can win with, starting next year.

It shows you how important it is to be liked. 

Sam is very well liked by the media and fanbase at large. He seems like a great guy. People really believed in him when he was drafted and desperately want him to be the guy. 

Compare the excuse-making for Sam to the excuse-making for Geno Smith. Geno got one less year here to prove himself and about 1% of the overall excuses.

One last time.

Name one comparable situation.  

Need a top ranked college QB.  

Drafted top 3.  

Gets as shltty an OL as Darnold.  

Gets as bad a running game.  

Gets as putrid a group of useless WRs and TEs.  

Is led by and untalented, unmotivated, unsupportive, incompetent CS devoid of imagination or play calling expertise.  

Find another example to compare to Darnold.  Not saying he can be fixed, saying I have no idea given the above.

Not comparable.

Sam was the top rated QB in his draft class.  Some claimed best since Luck.  We didnt expect to get him but somehow it worked that way.

Geno was a bigger question mark, some would say needed pick.

also add to this he had to learn 2 offenses in first 3 years which is hard enough, but much worse when you add everything else in. The fan base thinks these guys are madden players and not real people with brains and emotions that have to play the hardest position in all of sports.

The OP would have been better served by making the comparison with another NY Giants QB.

Eli Manning was not very good his first 4 seasons.

Now he is going to the HoF.

Look familiar?

  • Comp %: 54.4
  • TD:  11
  • INT:  9
  • Yards: 2,031
  • QB Rating: 74.0

Simms came back two years later (he was hurt for two years) with a new coach and threw for 4044 yards.

How about this 3rd year 1st round pick QB?

Comp%: 59.9
TD:  17
INT:  21
Yards:  3,040
QB Rating:  73.1

This 3rd year QB pretty much put up the same in his 4th year (a little better in some spots), played only 8 games through his 5th season, and that was it.  Out of the NFL for good.

Not sure why Phil Simms is relevant to Sam Darnold, or why my 3rd Year QB would be any less relevant to Darnold than Simms, but there you go.

Everyone knows it's POSSIBLE Darnold could rebound.  The question isn't possibility, it's likelihood.

Is it more likely Sam Darnold is Phil Simms?  Or that Sam Darnold is Tim Couch?

P.S. I hate these kind of implied arguments.  

They basically boil down to "Have faith in Darnold, because a different QB, 30 years ago, on a different team, in a different era, with different coaches, and different players got past his early troubles to win.  So Darnold could too?"

Who gives a flaming ****?  The guy has the opportunity for a single quality season before he needs to be paid.  He has not earned a big contract. He has not even earned the 5th year option.  If Darnold, like Simms, will sign a 5 year 2nd deal for $3.8M l will take him.  Do you think he will go for it?

Phil Simms played before the era of true free agency was ushered in.  When his rookie deal ended teams still had to compensate when they signed someone's free agency.  Then there was that Plan B sh*t where you "protected" your top 37 players and the only free agents were Neville Hewitt styled special teamers, not stars.   Forget the on the field stuff, the NFL was literally a completely different world back then.  Teams could sit on guys and "develop" them.  Those days are long over.

Or is it Sam has never been in the right system for him to succeed?? Rich Gannon floated around for 10 years+ till he was in a system with the Raiders where he made 4 Pro Bowls All Pro twice and took his team to a bowl.. I'm not saying wait 10 years for Sam but does anyone really believe Mahomes, Allen,Lamar,Herbert or any young QB would have had the Jets in the playoffs in the last 3 years??

He went top 10 the same year as Rosen who was ranked right with him.  Absolutely a worse situation than Sam Darnold and unlike Darnold he wasn't liked so he washed out immediately.  

Mitch Trubisky very comparable situation.  Winston and Mariotta very comparable.  All were drafted by teams with bottom of the barrel offenses.  

Sam is worse than all of them except Rosen.  Rosen hasn't gotten another chance.

Whether Darnold can improve is irrelevant.  They can't pay him off of what he has done, so they need to find somebody that is worth paying.  The reason guys don't get time to develop is the reality of the NFL in 2020

Sam played three seasons with less talent than Rosen had but only had one season to get abused.  Rosens had 16 starts.  

Trubisky has had talent, a whole lot more than Darnold with some really good defenses around him

On that I agree you can't have him past year 4 without a contract that is totally incentive based and no QB is signing that..

Again, have no clue what this has to do with what I said.   

I said is that we may not know what he is or isnt moving forward because of the OL, RBs, WRs & CS hes played with.  We dont know what he is, makes It difficult to decide if hes worth moving on from or not.

We could give Sam 180 seasons with 180 different coaches and systems, and you could still ask this question.

So it's not really a meaningful or answerable question.  If at the end of a player's third season as the #1 QB, the only defense is "well maybe the next system will be the right one", you don't really have anything factual to base it on.  It's just hope, not a logical argument.

How many players like Sam that became a Rich Gannon have their been?  How many players like Sam who never become Rich Gannon.  That is your answer, the ODDS strongly disfavor Sam being a Rich Gannon and strongly favor him being a backup or out of the NFL by the end of his 5th season.

This is simply unreasonable. There are virtually a countless number of variables in any given situation. By this logic, you wouldn't be able to compare any two QBs. 

At some point, the QB needs to take agency over his career and future. When Sam came back from injury in the middle of the season (first against the Bills at home and then against the Dolphins at home), he had the opportunity to play well enough to keep us from drafting his replacement. Instead, he played even worse than we had ever seen him play, going 5 straight games without a TD pass and repeatedly making inexcusable, head-scratching mistakes. This was his third year, not his first year. Simply put: Sam hasn't proven himself to be worth investing in any further.

Sam Bradford was signed to a two year deal to start in Rosen's first year and mentor him.  Bradford started the first 3 games and was so awful in the AZ O they threw Rosen into the fire.  The OC was fired midway through his first season, the HC was fired after his first season.  It was by far a worse situation than Sam has ever dealt with.   In Rosen's second year he went to a putrid Miami team that started the season with 7 consecutive losses with Fitzpatrick starting.   The Jets had arguably a better team last year than Miami.  We actually won more games with HC Adam Gase.  The Adam Gase who is (Hyperbole alert) the worst HC in the history of history who actually coached a Jets team to a better record than the Miami team that Rosen got a handful of meaningless starts with. 

Sam has sucked, he hasn't had the worst situation in the history of NFL football.  He has been in a classic situation for a high picked rookie QB.  Bad team in need of a QB picking a highly regarded NFL prospect.  

It's one thing to argue past production is not an indication of future production.  It's another thing to base it on a fictions "Worst situation in the history of competitive NFL football"  It's just pure BS.

Your position that Sam could become good with a good team around him is reasonable.  It's also complete speculation that's not based on past performance.  You're being argumentative.

Thanks in advance for the thumbs down!

Thats nice.  And your opinion.  You can compare QBs.  Their entire situations, the picture takes in all those variables.  You dont simply say, its all QB play, Allen and Darnold are in the same situation

Sorry dont agree.

Rosen played part of one season.  He played with LFitzgerald, had Johnson a 1,000 yard RB.  One season, how can you compare and why would you compare a 1 year QB to Darnolds 3?  

My position is simple.  Its not that Sam could become good with a good team around him.  One more time, I've said too many times, we dont know that he couldn't.  But to say that " The Worst situation in the history of competitive NFL football" doesnt have an affect on a QBs development is ridiculous.

I dont give debates a thumbs down.  Only stupid comments. 😎

This is all irrelevant (and you obviously know that it is). It doesn't matter what the league thought of Sam 3 years ago. The consensus is wrong all the time. The Bears traded up one draft pick to pick Trubisky instead of Mahomes or Watson. A lot of people loved Trubisky. (e.g. Kiper had Trubisky as the #1 QB in that draft class) It turns out, they were wrong. 

All that matters is that Sam (much like Geno) sucks as an NFL starter.
