Scott Fitterer: We want Sam Darnold to just flush what's happened

Well definitely but no one can really do that. The good news is Bradys system gives him plenty of confidence building options. Rehabing Darnald is all about film study and confidence. Can't be seeing ghosts out there.

How I wish he had come into the NFL to exactly this situation.  I really feel this front office and the coaches get it, not only for Sam, but for all the players on your roster.  
 

Even the city, culture itself is a blessing.  Not all of us grow up in an L.A. loving culture, particularly our laid back beach towns.  It’s up to your QB now, you’ve set him up for successful new start.

I'm for giving Sam a chance to show what he's capable of doing when surrounded with other talented players. 

Most of us realize Teddy wasn't comfortable taking chances and that resulted in a record of 0-8 when we had an opportunity to win in the closing minutes.

Sam can make all the throws and hasn't been shy about taking chances and/or improvising on the fly.  For sure, Darnold needs to be more consistent, but if our coaching staff can help him make better reads/decisions we could finally have our franchise QB.

This media blitz with the fluff is starting to enter babying territory. Let the guy put on a jersey and take a snap in camp.

Its called optimism. 

IF Sam works out, this is a HUGE win for us.

It seems like it is hard for some of these young QB's to recover from tough first stops in the NFL. I wish it was just as easy as being able to forget it all.

There is nothing wrong with that but fans being optimistic is different from the front office. If they keep building him up like this and he has struggles adjusting the media and fans will be even harsher on him. They want him to approach this like he's a rookie again but that's not the way life works. See Teddy Bridgewater who had his own share of optimism around him this time last year.
