What's the worst case scenario with Sam Darnold this year?


Recommended Posts

Of course the best case is he balls out. I think the worst case scenario is that he lights it up for a year signs a huge contract and then shitzthebed for years. The most likely scenario is that at the end of the season the team has 7ish wins and it's not apparent if he is or isn't the future. 

The fun part will be seeing all the arguments about whether or not he is. There will be a contingent on here that even if he tosses 3 INTs/game will find an excuse. Just like there will be a group that despite winning the division and Fields under performing will still grouse about passing him in the draft.

The future is bright if for nothing else all the bickering about a game none of us have any control over.

I came here to say this. IMO this is really probably the worst scenario.

Because now we likely have a top 5 draft pick, are in position to draft a franchise QB but have no idea what to do with Darnold.

That is an easy choice for me, I draft a QB but I don't know that our staff and FO would feel similarly. Especially if they thought he looked good in camp.

So, then you are looking at the potential of maybe passing on a franchise QB(twice) for a guy that ends up flaming out in 2022. To me that is the true nightmare scenario.

"passing on a possible franchise QB (twice)" or "passing on a possible 1st round bust QB (twice)"

If he gets hurt, and they’re not able to evaluate him this year, then I think you prepare to move on and either draft or trade for his replacement next offseason.  
 

He has to show something this year. Good luck to him, and I hope he succeeds and shows something.

You can twist it anyway you want but we have a bust first round QB currently. So what would the difference really be?

We had a #1 overall QB. Imma go count those Lombardis, back in a sec.

The guy that won the most trophy's wasn't a 1st rd pick.

Worst case scenario is Sam is a turnover machine while the quarterback we passed on in the draft has a rookie of the year type of season. I don't think that is likely but it is certainly possible nonetheless.

Seeing ghosts isn't what people think it means. It doesn't mean he's scared. It doesn't mean he's afraid of the defense. The phrase seeing ghosts means he's seeing things that aren't there, as in, he got confused by the defense of arguably the greatest coach of all time. 

So it's something that can be fixed with more film study and experience. 

It completely baffles me that a large amount of people on this forum legitimately don’t understand the metaphor and literally think he’s talking about the supernatural. What a rough life.

Hyperbole much? I know you were trying to be smug. But you don't have to insult a large portion of the Huddlez to do so?
