Panthers trade for Sam Darnold


Recommended Posts

We are now officially 0 for 1 on replacing the former franchise quarterback. The 100 million dollar coach and the owner who hired him are now officially on the clock. They can no longer use the boogeyman Hurney as a shield for their decisions and fans should do the same.

Dude we picked up his what, 18 million 5th year option, without even seeing what this dude is gonna be like with our coaches and system? This franchise is fuging dumb as poo. No reason to freak out. I ain’t buying tickets or merch for this bullshit but I will laugh my ass off at this thread next year like I did reading the Teddy signing thread last year.
 

Get ready for plenty of posts leading up to the season of why darnold doesn’t suck even though he only threw 9 td passes last year. But hey, Darnold has a better arm tho so there is that. Maybe he gets 20 tds this season. 

the team has done a good job concealing who is the driving force behind these decisions 

marty got fired so Marty got blamed for bridgewater, but here we are digging our heels in

somebody in the organization is pushing this kind of thing

maybe our college head coach has college head coach syndrome and thinks these guys are just a little bit of Coach ‘Em Up away from greatness 

maybe joe Brady wants to prove he can make somebody great

or maybe Dave tepper is a hedge fund manager who doesn’t understand the national football league

We’ll know eventually and I can’t wait to lambast them for it

Fair price was a 3rd rounder this year and instead the team got desperate.  This new GM should do better

He was totally desperate because he whiffed on better QBs, so this time he overpaid for a lesser QB. Never get desperate especially with the #8 pick.

Go look at the Jets fans' responses on Twitter. NONE of them are bashing Darnold; almost all of them think his talent was squandered by Gase and that he excels with a change of scenery. 

Yeah if the Jets were in a top 3 draft position to draft a new QB to pair with their new coach, I think they would have kept him and got some line help/ weapons.

He is 23 and what he cost us was really pretty low if are better next year.  I understand he has been poor so far but what if this guy ends up being good?  He has some talent he just needs some success.

Our fans are tying to put a positive spin on this because it feels good, so I get it. They put the spin on Teddy as well. It's emotional.

Our fans love to be negative and wrapped in self loathing and misery that they'll take taking a flyer on a young QB for the highest cost being next year's second as a franchise destroying mood.

God forbid someone be happy that the the team is making moves that improve us.

Higher chance he's mediocre over being the next hot thing but like. This isn't going to hurt us.

    • If he isn’t Revis in his first game, we blew it!
    • Its easy for them to make assumptions off of a few highlights. They didn't watch the actual game. Matt Nagy never put Justin Fields in position to be successful in this game. I just listened to The QB School while driving and JT said the same thing. Justin Fields left 3 completions out there on the Field outside of the pass interference. If you give him three more completions it still changes nothing in the game. They basically said we aren't going to motion, we aren't going to protect the kid at QB and we are going to run a bunch of stop routes. Mobile QBs should have plays called where the WR keeps moving. They should have called designed runs. They damn sure should have had more than 5 people blocking but on 13 of his 20 pass attempts there was no blocking TE and no running back to help chip or block. They let the line get torn up and made no changes. There is 0 reason why anyone would think Jason Peters at 39 is blocking Myles G. After sack 2 he should be getting doubled. Or sack 3? Maybe 4? Dude got to 4.5 sacks without getting double teamed once.  It was an embarrassment and they don't even do stuff like this with Andy Dalton. Dalton regularly gets a 6th blocker. It felt like Nagy just assumed that Fields speed was going to get him away from every defender. There are 0 QBs in the NFL right now that would have had success with the offensive gameplay and adjustments that were made yesterday. This is worse than the stuff that Gase would do. Nagy should be fired. Look at Darnold perform with decent coaches and good talent around him. 
    • MJ is also an option. After a couple weeks and a mini bye he should be up to speed and he’s been a vet of sorts
