we were the only ones who wanted sam darnold lol

I’m excited about his potential with a competent staff and surrounding talent. He will have tools and plays available to him here that he dreamed of having in New York. You guys could at least wait until he plays a game before you prepare your doomsday bunkers.

Teddy Bridgewater is a better QB than Sam Darnold 


And Teddy has hit his absolute ceiling. The gamble is can Darnold, six months younger than Joe Burrow, lead a team surrounded by the best supporting cast he’s ever had by far.

I mean they're taking a risk, but it's for a qb with the youth and traits they were looking for and they didn't even part ways with a first round pick to get it. You can make the argument for trading up for a young qb but the options were probably worse there and the same age QB as Sam. The SF trade forced them into a corner, they decided to take a route that let them keep all their draft picks this year. I don't hate it.

*IF* Sam can turn things around, it won’t happen in one off season.

Hes going to be the same guy this season.

Maybe a little improved, but it’s not going to be drastically better.

Several teams were interested at one point.  But most teams have filled QB slots (Bears, WFT, Saints, Colts) or positioned themselves (49ers) to draft one early.  This late in the game it’s no shock that we were the lone suitor left since we had held out for Watson.
