I think a lot of times the fans are confusing the playcall with the plays success. He can call a perfect play and Darnold can miss the throw. That’s not on him. Last week a lot of people were calling him out for red zone play but Darnold flat out missed throws that he should make.
He’s called a good enough game through three weeks that are defense gets rest and can continue to feast when they are on the field. Our calling card this year will be defense. He’s got to cater to the talent and I think he’s been good. Not great, but good.
It’s hard to do much with a poo offensive line and we are moving the ball in the air and on the ground. We have trailed for exactly 0 seconds this season. If we could block just a tad longer I think we would start seeing more deep shots. That’s all we are missing but for now the line can’t be trusted to protect Sam long enough to throw deep.
