NFL Offseason 2021: Ride the QB Carousel of Horror

Guess that answers the question of what Jets will be doing with the #2 pick. 
 

Honestly not a bad haul for a guy like Darnold. Doubt he will be anything more than a backup though. 


I can’t imagine the 49ers are too happy about that. Instead of getting the guy they wanted, they probably get to watch him get destroyed by the Jets. 

 

I also think that’s a pretty solid pickup for Carolina. Darnold is coming into a really good situation.

So, what does this mean for Teddy Bridgewater?

 

I feel for the guy. Likely going to be on yet another team

I feel for the guy. Likely going to be on his 5th team in a span of 6 seasons.

Depends...they either rock with him and Darnold if there’s no QB available (although I can see them with my Florida’s Trask), or they get Lance or Jones or Fields or someone and send him off to like, Atlanta

The Jets change quarterbacks like I change pants.

 

This team will forever be the butt of the joke. Unlike their fellow brothers in misery in Cleveland, who has a bright future; the Jets have no future.

 

I know Darnold isn't the best, but they threw him to the wolves. He had no offensive line, no one could catch a cold on that team, his confidence got shot to pieces and they're surprised he was regressing? Gee, I wonder why. You never gave him the chance.

It’s okay though, cause his coach comes recommended by Peyton Manning.

Looks like the thread finally lived up to its name (somewhat).  

 

Very interested to see what Darnold does away from Noted Offensive Genius Adam Gase.  I feel like there's a chance he could be Tannehill 2.0 since he's shown flashes, but he also might just be who he is at this point.

 

Now we wait to see if the Jets go for Wilson or Fields.

 

The thing with a Tannehill comparison is that Tannehill actually had put together some decent seasons before he left Miami at age 30, had double the amount of wins in his first 3 years, and had a breakout 3rd year. Darnold hasn't put together much in comparison. Granted yeah there is the Gase factor with Darnold. I just wish there was a better comparison for Darnold for a QB who basically did nothing for 3 years and then was traded. 

Tannehill first 3 years

Record: 23-25 

Completion %: 58.3, 60.4, 66.4

Yards: 3294, 3913, 4045

TDs: 12, 24, 27

INTs: 13, 17, 12

 

Darnold first 3 years

Record: 13-25

Completion %: 57.7, 61.9, 59.6

Yards: 2865, 3024, 2208

TDs: 17, 19, 9

INTs: 15, 13, 11

This is nonsense.  Generally, teams that are drafting in the top 5 are doing so because they were bad enough to get that slot.  Usually, they're bad enough because they don't have a good QB or line.  It's nearly impossible to draft a guy in the top 5 and give him a team that's already good to go.  Sometimes players fail on merit, and all the excuses are just that.  Players can succeed or at least show that they're a 'franchise guy' when on terrible teams.  Great players overcome lousy teams - or at least show that they'd be great if they weren't always getting sacked - and he couldn't.  Maybe a change in coaching will let him reach his potential... or maybe he's already there.  My bet is on the latter.

I'm almost convinced that Peyton was being sarcastic and the Jets didn't pick up on it.

 

"Who? Adam? Yeah, great guy. He let me do whatever the :censored: I want, gotta be a real genius to figure that out. Should you hire him? Oh sure, if you have a hall of fame quarterback he's the best coach in the league." *click* "dumbasses. Now where's my chicken parm?"

It's like when LeBron James suggested the Heat draft Shabazz Napier, they did, and then he went back to Cleveland anyway.

 

Don't take advice from people not under contract to your organization.

We've seen that even that doesn't matter, and star players under contract can force their way out whenever they want.

Maybe pro sports are full of a bunch of knuckleheads who get jobs because they partied with coach back in '93.

Authorities: NFL player Phillip Adams killed 5, then himself

 

Quote

Former NFL player Phillip Adams fatally shot five people, including a prominent doctor, his wife and their two grandchildren before killing himself early Thursday.

 

Absolutely disgusting. Can't even begin to imagine being the person who lost both their parents and children in this senseless act.

And so goes the last stalwart of the old guard (at least on offense). 
 

Guy honestly doesn’t get as much respect as he deserves for how hard he’s worked his whole career. 
He’s the embodiment of the guy who worked his way up and literally did everything. Offense, Defense, Special Teams.

Outside of Brady & maybe Gronk, I doubt you’ll find a player that meant more to the Patriots. 


Side note: I personally believe His Super Bowl LIII MVP proves Patriots would have won LII and Three-peated if he was healthy. 

 

His Hall of Fame eligibility will no doubt be a hot topic in a few years. Hell even now. 
With the records he has, I don’t see why he shouldn’t one day.

We really need random drug tests around here.  Please send a cup of your urine to Ice Cap or Infrared for analysis.

BBTV hit one of these. I'll take another.

 

You might want to take off the rose-colored glasses a little. He's not getting a SNIFF of the Hall of Fame.
