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

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. 

That 2010 season was truly something special.  Lame duck coach, owner trying to save money for the lockout, and a quarterback who was devoid of any ability.  We had some talented players too in DWill, Stew, Smitty, etc. but man that team was ass.

I think aside from Watson (pre allegations) this is the best possible scenario for the team as a whole. 
 

Darnold brings some level of continued stability with way more upside than Teddy, and allows us to draft to make the team better. 
 

if Pitts or Sewell isn’t there at 8, likely, then I would like to see a trade back and attain even more assets to build the team with. Remember the chiefs built a dominate team around Alex smith before inserting Pat. Even if Darnold isn’t the long term answer, this move allows us to continue to build out the roster while remaining competitive. And who knows maybe Darnold can thrive in this situation

Bro you're not guaranteed that at all now. 

Please for 2 seconds take a look at the surrounding circumstances that the team was looking at before this move... 2 seconds..

3 QBS gone after the 1st 3 picks that is reality now...  ...

Atlanta isn't helping us at fuging all.. Either they pick a QB  or trade with another team that wants a QB.  So that's 4 gone in the top 4 picks...

So now the panthers are sweating the next 3 picks or getting fleeced of assets for the 5th QB in this draft..

How is that a smart position to be in???

 

You're thoughts are real but Is bet sweet odds one will be there and whether we like him or not, I bet hes better than the 32nd best qb.

You can’t have it both ways

Either the 49ers acquired a franchise QB and we didn’t and cost is irrelevant or the prospects aren’t very good and the trade didn’t affect us at all and the team is now stacking itself on the notion that none of these QB prospects will be very good

minimum investment options for minimum investment players aren’t actually conducive to the part of the sport that actually matters

I don't know what the 49ers acquired but they are a better team and don't need much of the assets giving up to find out...

If we had the 49ers team then I could see that move being smart but we don't...

We get a ? at QB and lose major assets the next few season to build around him.. How is that smart??

Homer's are gonna home. Terrible move and we will suck for another 5 years. Mean while I can barely make the toilet these days. Hope you 20s hipsters get your SuperBowl. I'll be farting in my grave. This team sucks!

That's where we differ... 

You are willing to gamble that the 5 best QB in this draft drops to us..

I'd rather take the calculated risk that if we believe in our coaching we can make the best talent in a draft a few years ago better.. While building the rest of the team and keeping our assets..

Fair enough. The same buffoons who gambled on Teddy and our armchair GMs including myself said it was a colossal  mistake.

Our advanced model simulated the NFL season 10,000 times. Carolina is a lot worse with Sam Darnold rather than Teddy Bridgewater
 

w/Teddy

Wins 7.5

DIV 3.6%

Playoff 17.4%

w/Sam

Wins 6.3

DIV 0.9%

Playoff 6.2%

Well, not having to listen to Teddy endlessly audible at the LOS should be worth one game by itself

PS. usually the audible didn’t work

We also gambled on drafting QBS and failed should we stop doing it??

way more excited. with the additions on D and now essentially a #3 first rounder QB with #8 still on the clock and another year under rhule. I'd say this season is very important for the franchise

Isnt that the pot calling the kettle black. We should take one this year at 8. Not settle for the worst qb in the nfl!

    • No behind the scene photoshoots from Jeremy either… I miss those days…
    • Yep. 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. Sam Darnold added to a long list of former first-round picks let go by the Jets | KJZ - YouTube 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.   Agreed.
    • 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!
