    And sam will have a stud rb just like tanehill....

  • PumpOfWallStreet

    I think I'm about done with every espn commentator when it comes to these takes. Ryan was a back to back 4000 yard passer with Gase and battled through multiple injuries and got Miami to the playoffs. Darnold has been statistically the worst QB in the nfl and can barely break 200yds a game. Please tell me how this is eeriely similar? Sam is a bust. 22 turnovers his jr. Year at USC, he can't read a defense, he can't move an offense but the narrative will still stand because nobody wants to admit that he SUCKS. Chris simms is the only analyst that said Darnold coming out of the draft was only worth a second round pick and everyone else had him in the top 5. Enough of this

    I believe in what Douglas is doing. As bad as Gase is I do not see what everyone else see in Darnold. I wish him well but I feel like everyone is wrong about this how good Darnold will be.

    Yea except darnold doesn’t have multiple 4000 yard seasons

  • blackbusiness7

    This sums up PERFECTLY how I feel about all of this. I hope the Jets draft Sewell and trade for Watson. That's the only way this can be made up to me.

  • Chris Nalina

    Good riddance to Darnold. The guy never played a full season. Now he can go play his 8 or 9 games a year for a different team. As a Jet fan I look at as addition by subtraction.

  • Micheal Hudson

    Sam darnold has a chance to be a top 5 qb with the talent in carolina, if he has any talent. I think Sam will be a good qb. Hopefully he proves me right

    Wonder if cherry-picked stats, scapegoating Adam Gase, and wishful thinking, may prevent Sam Darnold from becoming another Chuck Long.

  • Chairun

    So Bridgewater threw 15 tds and 11 ints under Rhule and Brady so I am not going to say they are masters at improving QBs at the NFL level, sorry. I've watched every single Darnold game and while he make incredible throws at times, he misses easy ones and wide open guys more than you would like. A coach is supposed to get players open and a QB is supposed to execute the play. Neither Gase or Darnold lived up to that.

  • ADbarnyard90

    The lions are still worse than the Jets one playoff win since 1958

  • hovertrout1

    C'mon now, Sponge Bob Squarepants Dork Darnold could not carry Tannehills jock. Ryan was a college WR. Anyone think Potatoe head could line up at receiver? I held up a grade of D when Darnold was drafted I was there and in the minority. Not impressed. Unathletic, no confidence, turnover machine at USC too. Kermit the Frog biased Jets fan boy Mikey Greenie is clue less just like Jason Smith declaring Darnold as Joe Namath, now crickets.

  • SteVoBooZe

    Or it can just be Darnold isn’t that goooood

  • chriscma1

    Its a new atart for rhe woeful Jets. Getting rid of Gase was the best development this decade. Only rhat the Johnsons' appear to be allowing Joe Douglas run the show without their interference. Finally, there's no blame for Sam. Its a matter of timing and contracts. There's hipe the team may be headed in the right direction at last. Still, this is the Jets we're talking about.

  • Andrew Williams

    Availability bias. That’s the reason why this feels similar.

  • TheHighlanderprime

    Tannehill was a better player with the Dolphins that had Game and also a not so great team … Mike G. isn’t one to align with because his opinions usually are too emotional and miss the evidence on the playing field.

    The New York Jets!!!!!!????? They have a terrible history of making the wrong moves. They should have kept Sam and build a decent team and coaching staff around the former first round pick. They should have traded the #2 pick for a bunch of first round picks in 2021 and 2022/23. They never make the right moves. And I'm a Jets fan! This cycle of questionable decisions never seems to end. We'll see. I think Sam will go to Carolina and show out!

      Many Jet fans feel the same way towards Gase.. even people that don't know football had an uneasy feeling when he was hired. ..and if this new rebuild doesn't work out.. ownership HAS TO SELL the JETS.

    • Chris Cicio
      Chris Cicio

      @Colby Naranjo Tannehill had 3 straight 24+ passing TD seasons in Miami with Gase. Darnold hasn't had any seasons above 20 passing TDs in New York with Gase. The difference is one produced in the face of adversity and the other flopped.

    I praying you’re right Greeny. I do think Carolina will go Slator or Sewell. If not them then maybe Surtain. I can see them landing Pitts or taking a WR when they have Robby & DJ. Panthers could honestly trade back

    i gotta tell yah. this is like lookin into a mirror. This frustration isn't an overnight thing, we Jet Fans are so beat down with all the quarterback mishaps and fiscal blunders. the fact that we went from drafting a solid, stable quarterback to hiring a failing coach who we saw twice a year and surrounding him with nothing, firing our GM after the draft, and wasting that poor guy within 3 years, is such a painful thing to see. Sam reminded me of chad pennington. oh, the good ole days...

    As a Giant fan that year I was mad we didn’t draft Sam Darnold, then I saw the Jets draft him and knew he was an automatic bust. The Jets are the “Mush” of the NFL.

  • thekingbradable

    It’s not similar. At least Tannehill had a couple decent seasons and led his team to the playoffs. Darnold has been awful

  • J. Gomez

    They better hope Wilson isn't Mitch Trubisky and Darnold turns into a bettrer player then Tannenhill and leads Carolina to a SB that would suck😬

  • Scarletbull

    No it doesn’t!... No it doesn’t! Darnold’s trade feels like Fitzpatrick transitioning to another team ‘cept, Fitzpatrick is actually a BETTER QB. Darnold’s a poor man’s Ryan Fitzpatrick. Darnold is Bizarro to Fitzpatrick’s Supes.

    ESPN is so clearly against Tua but loves Darnold. Darnold had “a bad offensive play caller, bad O-line, no weapons” but act like Tua is throwing to All-Pros, an O-line full of HoF’s, and has the greatest play caller of all time. I know Darnold had it bad with Gase, I’m a Dolphins fan, he was absolutely terrible. But Tua has played nine games, Darnold has has a whole rookie contract and all of ESPN wants Tua gone but Darnold is the second coming of Brady somehow. If Darnold doesn’t get the starting job over Bridgewater, I guess Matt Rhule is trash all of a sudden.

    Greeny fails to realize that the Jets are in the same spot MIA was when they released Adam Gase. It is for the betterment of the team overalls. It sucks it really does but don't blame the current staff for the demons of the past. We're headed in the right direction. JD needs to see his full Jets contract through.

  • The Cats Meow

    The Jets are such a dumb organization. They’ll draft Zach Wilson and still have a terrible offensive line, while Sam Darnold goes on to have a great career.

    One thing is a fact. His turnover ratio is a stain going back from usc into the pros. Numbers don’t lie. I hope he does well.

  • Francis Kanneh

    The only difference between Tannehill and Darnold is that Ryan Tannehill IS accurate from a clean pocket and Sam Darnold is NOT accurate from a clean pocket.

  • Romeo Tene

    As a jets fan at this point the only thing I can hope For is the panthers to really stink up the joint to make that second round pick better next draft and hope and pray Zach Wilson is everything he’s supposed to be

  • Kevin Burke
    Kevin Burke

    Part of Jets fans obsession with Darnold I think is because the Giants passed on him. Jets fans really wanted Darnold to haunt the Giants for years by having a Hall of Fame career and winning a SB for Jets. They wanted to finally overshadow their big brother. Sorry didn't happen. Lol 🤣

  • rob horton

    People in these comments obviously don’t live in New York and was forced to watch all New York teams and if u guys think darnold is gonna take the panthers to the next level must only watch good highlights of his

    We all know Sam is gonna win MVP. Superbowl MVP. Rookie of the year (because he's getting a do over)... He's gonna win coach of the year and win the 2024 election simply because he's not on the Jets.


    Greeny sums it all.

  • Lil Star
    Lil Star

    28 passing touchdowns and 7 interceptions is what I predict Sam is going to post this season, with a QBR of maybe 98.1, 3,000 passing yards, maybe 3 rushing touchdowns. Yep. He can be better than Tannehill.
