That’s the problem. He wasn’t a “big armed” QB and his accuracy was for s**t.   White has a bigger arm than Morgan.   The Jets have made way worse draft blunders than Morgan, but I just didn’t see any value in taking him there.  Like I said, not second guessing, I hated it from day one.  

If we were picking a developmental guy I would have preferred it be at a position that has multiple options to play--OLine, WR, RB, LB, any DB.  

Someone that can play in a rotational role.  Even if not a star.

This is almost as bad as trading a draft pick for Joe Flacco

Sums it up succintly.

Morgan has a big arm, youre missing the value that was there, he had all the physical tool to warrant the pick

the Jets cut ___________________, then spent a lot of money and traded draft picks for quarterbacks who were not ______________, and then wound up signing ________________.

I'm mildly disappointed the Panthers beat us to this sentence.

Lol…ok.  He was cut before he ever saw the field and looked terrible in camp this year.    ‘’All the physical tools”??   That’s comical.   I’m not missing anything, it was a bad pick.   Not the end of the world.  It doesn’t even require anymore discussion, it’s wasted energy at this point.

Wonder how many Jets fans would have been whining about wasting a 5th on Mike White after his first year.  :)

Captain Morgan’s path to the # 2 job gets foiled again!

When you're the guy holding a clipboard as you try to overhear the conversation between the QB2 and an assistant offensive coach that's when you realize you're truly on the outside looking in.

Got to love how people take this news and then try to turn this thread into a Morgan pissing contest....

Jets recouped a 2nd plus a 4th plus a 6th 

The Panthers end up with two crappy Jets QBs and we can't stop $***ing on ourselves long enough to have some fun $***ing on them.

People  rather $*** their pants in frustration over a 4th rounder that didn't pan out than have some fun at the Panthers expense.

Insufferable

its wasnt a value pick , it was for need. we had no backup at the time. Flacco was signed after the draft on May 27, 2020.

that and he probably knew after 2 seasons Sam wasnt good and maybe he could get lucky with a 4th rd QB.

Popped in here to make fun of the Panthers and Darnold.

Instead, weaving my way through the 'OMGZ Morgan SUX SO HARD' guys that need to equate spending a 4th RD pick on a QB that didn't work out to the worst move ever. 

For real.  I'd love for every 4th round QB to turn into Dak Prescott or Kirk Cousins, but it just doesn't happen very often.

The Colts used a 4th round pick on Jacob Eason just 3 picks before the Jets took Morgan.  A lot of people here liked Eason pre-draft, if I recall correctly.  He's thrown just 5 more NFL passes than Morgan has since getting drafted.  He's 2-5 for 25 yards, 0 TDs and an INT.

Seems like they are giving him a good payday for half a season.  Panthers fans are thrilled.

Panthers initially wanted a 2-year, Cam Newton wanted multi. They decide on 1-year, $10M, $4.5M guaranteed and $1.5M roster bonus per source.

They actual point is Joe Douglas trusted his coaches, dumped the guy he picked Morgan and kept Mike ********* White!! That’s the rub here. 

yep, and nobody will give him or Saleh credit for that.

im sure nobody knew he would throw for 400 yds but he is obviously good enough to be a backup.

Yep.  All offseason Saleh said he was happy with the QB room.  Yet all offseason and for weeks into the regular season people b*tched about the team not having a vet backup as if it was the worst of our problems.  

I fully agree that neither Saleh nor Douglas knew that White was capable of in that Cincy game, otherwise I imagine the Flacco trade probably would not have happened.  But they knew enough to say White was at least capable as the QB2.  Good on them in an otherwise mostly rough season for both the GM and HC.
