I think Rhule agrees with you which is why we gave away just a future 2nd and 4th and this years 6th. We recouped this years 6 in the Teddy trade. Conventional logic says future picks are the equiv of subtracting a round, so a 2nd next year is the same as a 3 rd this year. Matt and Fitt felt by trading down and adding 3rd and 4th round picks we've already recouped the total cost of Darnold. That's debatable, but its better than the Jets who gave up the 6, 37, 52, 169 and the following year 34 to move up 3 spots to get Darnold in 2018.
I think by giving way all that draft capital, combined with already sucking, combine with picking poorly with your subsequent picks, and then hiring Gase, I think a more accurate picture would be, the GM "Jetted" Darnold rather than the jets "Darnolded" their QB.
When Darnold left, they had none of their 1st round draft picks on their team. Darron Lee, Calvin Pryor, Dee Milliner aren't even in the NFL anymore.

We're giving him a fresh look to see how much of the stink was on him and how much was on the jets. I want him to do well and want people to give him a chance.
Haven't read anything from the team's media personnel on roster changes, uniform changes, practice schedule, new schemes (dance routines)... These are the questions that need to be answered. Igo, get on it!
