The bolded is a strawman. 

Nobody thinks this to be true. 

You actually think different situations arent taken into account when looking at different QBs?

Have no idea what youre talking about with the straw man comment.   I literally copied and pasted it from your post

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.

Serious question - do you know what a "strawman" is? 

You copied "You don't simply say, its all QB play, Allen and Darnold are in the same situation" from my post? Which one? LMAO. 

Now you are just making stuff up.

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. 

It is totally relevant.  He was a top 3 pick, a HUGE investment of assets and dollars.  It makes a difference because you dont bring in a supporting cast for a 4th round pick but you sure as shlt should for a 3rd overall.  When you take a QB 3rd overall its to start, bring in support, you dont leave to play with the same garbage that didnt produce and throw a rookie onto.  So no, I obviously dont agree.  You should rethink, because youre wrong

Have no clue what youre talking about with Trubisky, the point was support for our QB.

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 know if he is worth moving on from because it is 2021.  Worth moving on from includes contract.  In 1982 you could sit on a guy and hope that he developed.  In 2021, you need to be ready to play by the time you are going to get paid and Darnold is getting paid in 2022.  If you can't see that, or think that his WRs and coaching staff cluttered the view so much that he will be worth $25M in 2022, cool.  I don't see it that way.

If hope isn't part of being a fan what the hell are we doing here??B)

I'm discussing facts and making educated analysis of possible franchise decisions, and weighting which are more likely to lead to our success for a Super Bowl title.  

Sam has so far been the worst QB in the NFL for the three years he's been in the NFL (combined).

Yes, he's had horrible coaches (I hate Gase like no other) and weak supporting talent.  Like most top draft picks get early on, to be fair.

He has completely failed to distinguish himself, to rise above his coaches or support players on his own talent or decision making, or to excel at pretty much anything.  And he's missed time every year.

Could he be salvaged?  Sure, anything is possible.  But again, the odds do not favor it.  If we wish to ignore than and just yell "rah rah Sammy!" at the top of our voices while not doing anything to improve the QB position, ok I guess.

Contract is different and I've said this since the 2020 season ended,.  Its in play.  Has to be.  

 Good part with the NFLs slotted pay scale is a bad pick isnt a death knell like it used to be.  But you dont want to turn it into one by picking up the option.  

I have no idea why youre lecturing me, I know how this works.  All im saying is we dont know about Sam, not that we have to keep him damn the cost.  But that has nothing to do with reality, that we would be moving on from a player theyre not sure about.  More than likely IMO we wont be sorry, just there is no way of knowing for sure today

Plenty of top 3 picks have turned out to suck over the years. It happens. It doesn't matter what the league thought about Sam 3 seasons ago . . .  at all.  The Jets doing a bad job surrounding Sam with talent does not preclude the possibility that Sam is just a bad NFL QB.

I realize that it must be frustrating to iteratively defend a bad QB, but the good news is that you don't have to. 

Excuse-making is exhausting.

We're old mates Sav, but you're just wrong.  

I'll give you an example, the Nats (my Nats) won the Series in 2019.  I've yet to complain to anyone about it.

I do love the analysis, the numbers, the debates, that's the kinda guy I am (you can  probably guess within a degree or two what I do for a living).

But no man, no way.  We win a title, I'm not complaining about it, but I likely will post about what they should do to win a second one!

The problem is, we're not close, and mostly haven't been in over a decade.  Lets get close first, then see how it goes, lol!

Respectfully, I think we know more about Sam than you think.

Not the whole story, not yet, but we've seen three full years of him.  

We're not sitting in the dark on who and what he is.

A belated congrats on your Nats.. I remember going to a bar after we won in 1969 that some Jet fans hung out in. And rather just celebrate a great win some had to say if we played them 9 more times we would get killed every game.. An no I don't put you in that class your description in bolded is what i meant I just said it wrong.:cheers:

I respectfully disagree, we dont have the whole picture, and given the entire picture how could we?  

His problem is, like discussed before, he takes a financial commitment or he could be lost without a return.

No what's frustrating is youre so hellbent on expalaining why he sucks and needs to go that after explain in at least 4 posts you still haven got that all I'm saying is we arent completely sure what he is.

But you'll turn that into im defending him or making excuses.

His performance speaks for itself. Through 3 seasons, he has s*cked as a starting NFL QB.

Ok, that's fair. 

But you have to acknowledge that he's been bad through 3 years of play, and historically speaking, that is a huge mitigating factor against his future prospects as a franchise QB. He has 38 starts under his belt. That's a significant sample size.

OMG, we've had a breakthrough.  I literally said this for the first time this morning.  LOL

Yes, yes, we dont know means he can be just as bad moving forward, never said he couldn't.

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. 

Ok what about Drew Brees and Alex Smith?

Even if we assume that is true (a huge assumption), that is still not a reason to roll with him as the starter for year 4. There are veteran QBs available who are better than Darnold.

It’s not a huge assumption.  These guys outside of Lawrence suck.  At this point in their careers Drew Brees and Alex Smith had even worse numbers than Sam

 

And if there are veteran QBs available who are better than sign one of them to compete with Sam next TC

You have no clue what the QBs in this draft class will become. No clue. None of us do. You are guessing like everyone else.

This isn't quite accurate with respect to Brees. Brees didn't start a single game his rookie season (He got some snaps in relief duty in one game). In Drew's third season as a tenured starter, he went to the Pro Bowl. In Sam's third year as a tenured starter, he was the worst starting QB in the NFL.

You are lost.  Brees in his 3rd season not only did not make the pro bowl he had a 57% completion percentage and got benched

 

If Drew Brees was so good by year 3 why did the Chargers draft Phillip Rivers in 2004?

Nope. Try reading slower. 

Brees didn't make the Pro Bowl until his fourth season, but it was only his 3rd season as a starting QB because he didn't start a single game in his rookie year

Once again, and make sure you read this nice and slowly - Brees was a pro bowl QB in his 3rd season as a starting NFL QB. Meanwhile, Darnold was arguably the worst QB in the league for the duration of his 3rd season as a starting NFL QB. 

Understand now?

You are playing semantics now.  Brees did not blossom as a QB until 4 years after he was drafted by the chargers

It's not semantics. 

The point is that Brees became a good QB after 27 starts in the league. Darnold has already started 38 games and regressed badly in his last 13 starts. 

The Brees-Darnold comparison just isn't a vey good one.
