If Darnold plays poorly next year, we traded what will be a 1st round pick for him.

If you want to blame the staff and hold on the the Teddy signing, not much I can say. It was an awful move. But for where we finished and sat in the draft, this was probably the best case scenario for the team going into next season.  The Watson ship sailed and here we are. 
 

But I’m sure if you were running the team we would have 3 Super Bowls right now. Gotta love the couch GMs.  I’m willing to see how this plays out. If Sam isn’t the answer, we lost one year. It will be a better year no matter what than playing noodle arm Teddy. 

If I can see it they damn sure should be able to.

A late first round pick, but a 1st rounder nonetheless.  

If Darnold is anything like he has been the past few years for the Jets, we'll be a bottom 7 team picking at the top of the 2nd round.

If you add up the other picks we gave up with a high 2nd rounder, it has the same 'draft value' as a late 1st round pick.

So Darnold may end up costing us a late 1st rounder, and a tremendous cap hit in his 5th year.  That is quite the gamble for a quarterback who has played at his level, regardless of his coaching.

 

No. Added together it cost a potential second round pick. And that's if we don't trade teddy for two fourths and flip it for a 2nd or 3rd between now and next draft.

You skretchin.

I am glad the Internet/huddle wasn’t around the Delhomme era!! You guys would have an aneurism or heart attack trying to post every time their was an issue with him.. which was most games but he won!! Anyway I am not excited about Darnold but optimistic since he threw a party and we have a coaching staff that seems to be eager to teach the unwanted!!

Anyone on here who isn’t sunshine and rainbows gets pooed into oblivion. Pretty funny really. If we traded for a 2nd everyone would be talking about how valuable 2nds are, but bc we have one away it’s “low risk, who cares”

How come in this instance the pick value doesn’t drop a round in value being a year later like a lot of trade up scenarios were being talked up 

That’s exactly how it’s being view by anyone with half a ***** brain

Could be much worse. We could have given up three first rounders and an impact player for Deshaun "Happy Ending" Watson as so many on here insisted must be done. Not saying I love the idea of Darnold but sure beats giving up the farm and setting the franchise back years for oke player who may or may not have a serious mental problem and may be suspended for a long time in the near future.

Teddy lost more games than me too.

and I’d wager you would be a lot more entertaining to watch than Teddy Check Down Bridgewater.

    • Substitute rigatoni.  After you slop some sauce on, who cares what shape your pasta is.  
    • Darnold has proven he knows how to lose, and he was our last choice as a free agent QB. No other teams were interested in trading for Darnold in a QB desperate market. Oh course we are taking Fields and Lance if they fall to 8, and you should be happy about it.
    • 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.
