What are some examples of QBs who were once considered huge busts, but revived their career on another team?


Recommended Posts

I've seen Ryan Tannehill cited, but he was actually above average in on a terrible Miami team.

In his 2nd, 3rd, and 4th season, he passed for over 4000 yards.   His passer rating was always in the 90s, and while not a top tier QB, you couldn't really call him a bust.  Tannehill went from pretty good to better, so I would never compare him to Darnold's disastrous start.

Drew Brees was also very good in San Diego;  are there any examples we can use to have hope for Darnold?

At best Darnold can be what Dalton was in Cinci

Darnold keeps Carolina out of the sweepstakes for a real QB

Dalton was always good though, right off the gate  There was actually a silly debate Dalton should be rookie of the year against Cam.

I'm not sure there are any QBs who started like Darnold who ever had good careers in the NFL.

He might have to pull off a first in NFL history.

Panther fans love the idea of breaking records.

For instance the notion we would’ve made the playoffs with a good QB las year, would have set records because of how atrocious our entire team was. Just hasn’t happened.

Not a fan of Darnold but he does have a record, and that’s being the youngest qb to start in the modern nfl. Had crappy coaching.

It’s hard to find a team with as little talent at the Jets. They have none if their first round picks left. In 2019 Darnold’s stats weren’t terrible (kind of on par with Teddy’s this past year with way less help). That shoulder injury last year seemed to really set him back (happened early week 3 or 4) The Jets suck with him, but are winless in the games he missed these past 3 years.

I’m not the biggest Darnold fan, but he is far more athletic than Dalton with a better arm. He ceiling is much higher with a floor much lower. Dalton is more like Teddy...

Nearly every QB drafted in the top 3 goes to a terrible team [otherwise the team never would have been in position to have such a high draft pick].

Franchise QBs find a way to elevate disastrous franchises. Cam Newton went to a 1-15 team Hurney had sabotaged and instantly lifted them to contention.

Perhaps Darnold's situation was a little worse than normal, but he showed nothing to indicate he had a future in this league.
