In the CFL?  

If indeed Darnold starts the 2nd preseason game, he better savor it. Very good chance it’s the last game he ever starts.

Next week Darnold gets the start. May the best bum win. 

Is that true, or are you guessing/joking?

Because if true, that's so adorable. Matt Rhule makes good decisions.

His swan song game.

There's 19 million reasons why no one should shed a tear for him, either.

Gardner Minshew 41-12 TD/INTs in 22 career starts. On a 6th Rd rookie deal and  can’t beg his way into a starting role. Sam Darnold — gifted 19 million dollars.

I cry for the injustice of the world. 

To be fair, I always question the long-term abilities of any prospect that would willingly sign on to play ball at ECU.

What did Minshew say to Coach Sirianni when he was told there was “no way” to earn the starting role over Jalen Hurts?

”Arrrr ya kiddin’ me?”

I hear he responded by demanding a trade to either the Buccaneers, Raiders or Pittsburgh (so he could attend Pirates’ games regularly).

In all seriousness I am surprised Belichick didn’t make a play for him. He is basically Mac Jones with chutzpah.

I think his “chutzpah” is part of why he’s not desirable for a lot of teams.

Nobody wants a goofball backup/fringe QB trying to go viral.

Could be. Still stupid.

They both suck so who cares. 

Darnold certainly. I do believe a fair amount of recency bias is distorting your analysis of Baker, however.

Oh please.  If Baker was even serviceable he would still be on Cleveland.  

So you are basing your conclusion on what Cleveland did. That’s interesting.

Cleveland  is a good team with poor leadership but dumping Baker was the correct move. He was not bringing them to a SB. No way. He probably wasn't  even going to be a guy that could lead the team period. They became a run first and second team for a reason.

You know, I always considered them very similar, but I never really thought about exactly how the same they respective names truly are.

There is no way that is a coincidence, is there?

I think s/he alluded to being the same person who changed names in homage of our new QB
