Has the trade for Sam Darnold changed your outlook on the 2021 season?

Maybe Brady can revive Darnold's career like he did Teddy's

Now we are all bad fans. Suck the teat you are given or feel shame! LoL.

How soon can we fire this GM? He might have brain damage.

Much more excited. Now we can use 8 on an immediate contributor, or trade back a bit and get multiple contributors. Darnold has talent but hope hasn’t been ruined by the Jets.

I was 5 years old in 2001 but I remember the 2010 season quite well. I don't think we will be quite that bad this year. If we are the worst team in the league I will be genuinely surprised. 

I have been here since game 1. I get your need for positivity but I've been up to my eyes in crap with the Panthers and have no blind optimism at this point. We are looking bottom 10 qgain at this point. The draft will make or break us. Like I said elsewhere, I hope we lose it all and get that 2022 #1 pick with the moves we have made. We could be setting ourselves up for 10 years of success riding Darnope into the ground in 2021.

1000 percent more interested. Not only do we have a better QB with more potential, but we get to add an exciting player around him since we don’t have to trade everything for a QB. 
 

I was probably not going to watch another game until Teddy was done. And now I don’t have to worry about that. 

The beauty of all this us even if Sam Darnold is not much better than Teddy we still weren't guaranteed that any of tjectookie was could have done us any better plus costing us draft capital. Now we can sensibly build thru the draft and if Darnold excels wham we are off in running and if he doesnt well at least a majority of other positions have been successfully upgraded and then we are still looking for our Moby Dick in a QB but maybe that's all we will need on the negative side of it all.

I'm def more excited to see what we actually have in Brady and what could be done with Darnold. Most of all I love us not being pidgeon holed at 8. Love the higher possibility of trading down. I liked the draft last year and am looking forward to seeing what they can do with this draft. IMHO unless Sewell Parsons or Surtain falls to us, trading back and getting a 2nd or 3rd this year along with a 1st next year is tantalizing

No one does and it's a great day to purge all positivity and embrace the incoming poo storm.

getting the rare opportunity to draft a top flight QB prospect doesn’t come along very often and signing some bust so you can “check a need” and “free yourself up” to draft some HOG MOLLY or other ancillary position that will just waste away here until we luck into a QB is an awful, awful approach that reeks of college coach/ new owner symbiotic stupidity (with a touch of Seattle draft idiocy thrown in for good measure)

I remain cautiously optimistic. Defense should definitely be better.

I'm interested to see what Darnold does in our offense. If we manage to snag a cornerstone LT in the draft, I'll be very encouraged, regardless of whether Darnold is the guy or not.

    • I think there's a lot of truth here, but I will say something that may not be popular. I think Cam was a good QB that had could have been great. The GM never did enough to protect his blind side, but Cam never did enough to consistently fix his weaknesses as far as inconsistent mechanics, holding on to the ball too long, and simply consistent solid decision making. I don't know how much of the blame goes to the GM and unimaginative, old school OCs and an an HC, and how much of the blame was Cam's. But, it was a combination. Hell, they even drafted twin towers to help Cam out, but then they never got him an exclamation point at LT. Cam had great moments here--piercing that skin of the elite, but he never completely punched through. And, he is running out of time to get it done. I think this season will be his last opportunity (and I am rooting for him, unless we somehow get in the way).  I say all this because Luke was truly a great MLB. His elite play and consistency was rock solid! I think Luke was a greater LB than Cam has been a QB. I will admit that it's more difficult to be a great QB, but I don't believe that Cam and Luke should always be necessarily linked as the the main reasons why we were semi-successful during the Rivera era. I believe that Cam was an imperfect cracked wooden crutch that also held us back in some respects, while Luke was made of strong aluminum alloy that we could always depend on to get the job done. Just an observation and attempt at an objective opinion based over a period of time. It's my take and I'm sticking to it.
    • Seeing Brandon Beane in the top 5 of GM's that are drafting makes me die inside. fug JR, Bean would have been amazing here. Sigh. 
    • I mean it's the same for any of these professional talking head analysts.  Jeremiah, Brooks etc would all fail as GMs. That's why they're talking heads rather than in actual Front Offices.
