More subject switching, I pretty much debunked this thread with my first reply.

I don't think Darnold will ultimately end up an All Pro, but it is worth noting that people touting how Tannehill showed more before Tennessee are right... but he showed more before Gase showed up, and he looked arguably as bad as Darnold did while Gase was there... Tannehill went from ~2% ints thrown before Gase, a fine number, to 3+%, which is bad decision making indeed. He went from multiple 4k yard, 20+ TD seasons with low int% to being a total disaster of decision making.  But as a rookie, he showed as much or maybe less than Darnold did as a rookie.  Hell, even his second year was pretty comparable to Darnold's... 

The difference is, Tannehill's HUGE downtown happened in his 5th year, when Gase joined the Fins (and Tannehill got injured), while Darnold was exposed to Gase in his 2nd year, and the huge potential so many saw near the end of Darnold's first year did not seem to be realized.  

The huge knock on Tannehill in his last couple years in Miami was how bad his decision making had become.

What's the big knock on Darnold? 

So there's reasons to be optimistic, and IMO that is why we made the trade.

The Darnold/Tannehill comparison is the laziest take currently going, a simple google search would show you Tannehill worst season with Gase is better than Darnold best season. You can’t even use the supporting cast excuse, Tannehill supporting cast was just as bad if not worse. Let’s not forget Darnold was also terrible his rookie season with Bowles as his coach, meanwhile Tannehill at least put up decent numbers with the previous coach.

 

 

Tannehill being Darnold benchmark is laughable to begin with, I don’t want Tannehill as my franchise QB. Everyone in the world has seen over the last 2 playoffs or when ever the Titans struggle it’s cause the opposing team slows down Henry forcing the Tannehill to win the game. I want a QB that doesn’t need a perfect situation to win. 
 

But that’s was settling for castoff QBs get you

Id take tannehill over rodgers in the playoffs. You know what youre getting with rodgers.

I’m not a PFF fan but ya...

I said in the prediction thread that I think Darnold is gonna have a career year, which isn’t saying a whole lot considering he’s had very pedestrian numbers. Brady’s system is very qb friendly and we have legit weapons. I can understand people not including his 3rd year in evaluation of him because that team was tanking. I just think that 3rd year should’ve not allowed a 2nd round pick to be on the table for us to give away even if I understand that we needed to do something at qb because we don’t have a whole lot of options.
 

the big thing, like teddy, is he is gonna be put in situations where he needs to come through in the 4th quarter. Make big plays in big time moments. That’s gonna be the ultimate evaluation for him next year. The optimistic side for me would be he performs well but not at the level of a true franchise qb. Maybe he’ll have trade value and we can package something to move up in the draft next year if there is a qb we like. I just think all of this is highly unlikely though. 
 

also another huge red flag is this dude has never played a full season healthy.

For me, I just want to see him show progress. 

After hearing Robby talk about the “culture” in NY and Adam Gase, I think the argument could be made to throw out years 2 and 3.

His pro comp in his draft profile was Andrew Luck. He’s tweaked his throwing motion since his college days for the better. He’s still only 23. If he can just get back on track and show more good than bad, I think he’s worth putting time into.

It’ll truly be interesting to see which way this one goes. We have an extremely highly touted prospect versus an extremely dysfunctional organization.   
 

*I’m not saying he’s Andrew Luck btw or anything. I just don’t think you can comp someone to Luck and be that horribly wrong.

this is a sobering read. He was ranked dead last as a starting qb WITH a clean pocket. 
 

“That’s one thing that stands out when watching Darnold’s film. He’s not really the gunslinger he’s made out to be. There’s a reason why his highlights are always out-of-structure: In structure, he’s terribly conservative. Gase was criticized for his painfully horizontal offense, but have we considered the possibility that it was a result of Darnold’s own limitations as a passer? Those short throws were the only ones he was actually capable of making at an above-average rate…”

since he was really good at those short throws I hope that he will fit into this offense well by getting the ball to our legit YAC playmakers quickly. That’s why I think he’s gonna have a career year. But, teddy did that well also. He has a cannon to go deep and does some good things off-script that teddy didn’t have the ability to do. But he also does mind numbingly stupid throws off script as well. And our oline isn’t that great either. The coaches are gonna have to coach the poo out of him.

I’ll gladly take Jake 2.0, if Darnold can become that.  Don’t let the pursuit of the perfect become the enemy of the good.

Nice post.

Probably also worth noting that given his overall lack of experience, Darnold really could have used a teacher.

That definitely wasn't Gase.

    • In the last 60 days how many total hours do you figure you've spent on this website promoting Sam's cause?
    • ...Interesting article. It almost sounds like there is a high level plan that Tepper and the city share for that area. Obviously, who pays for what will be the big fight. https://www.wbtv.com/2021/07/22/records-show-charlotte-lacks-money-new-stadium/ ——————— A WBTV Investigation shows the Queen City’s capacity to contribute to stadium projects is much lower than what’s recently been agreed upon in other NFL cities. Financial records shared by city staffers during a Charlotte Regional Visitors Authority board meeting show that the capacity to take on debt for major stadium construction is somewhat limited by other projects the city has already financed. ———————— “I don’t feel that the capacity is there at the moment in the existing tax structure,” District 7 Councilman Ed Driggs told WBTV Councilman and financial institution veteran Ed Driggs told WBTV he has doubts about the cities pot of money to pay for the deal. “Particularly because we have a pipeline of capital projects that will probably soak up a lot of that of existing capacity,” Driggs said. In addition to future potential projects like Discovery Place and Blumenthal Performing Arts, the city is already committed to $174 million in debt in the Convention Center fund, including more than $100 million for recent convention center upgrades. ———————- Economist Andrew Zimbalist told WBTV that deals between franchise owners and cities that look beyond a specific dollar contribution have proven more fruitful for taxpayers. “Cities are finding it more and more difficult to justify the expenditures as the prices go up in urban areas,” Zimbalist said. “What we’ll do is we’ll give you the land for the stadium. Not only that, but we’ll give you some acres around it for parking lots and we’ll give you some more acres for commercial and residential development and then you can make your money off of those other things that will help pay back.”   That’s not to dissimilar from the plan currently unfolding between Charlotte and Tepper. The City has already reached an agreement with Tepper and a developer for new soccer fields, residential units and commercial enterprises at Eastland. The city is also still negotiating with Tepper around a mixed-use/entertainment district in the area near Bank of America Stadium and the Charlotte Pipe and Foundry property, which could be crucial to the development of a future stadium. Rezoning Pipe and Foundry and using a mixed-use/entertainment district to link it with the Gateway District, home of a future transit center for Amtrak could be crucial to plans moving forward. ———————- “More likely than not, at the end of the day, for the vast majority of these deals, they should not be looked upon as a promoter for the economy,” Zimbalist said. “They’re not going to raise overall employment. They’re not going to raise per capita income, and what you want to do as a city if you want to have a sports team, whether it’s MLS, NFL or NBA or whatever it might be, try to make a deal that is financially neutral.”
    • True that but even if you trade it for later capital, better to get a return on investment.
