I still think Darnold can be a good QB.  Our offensive line combined with an OC that is putting the QB and WR in horrible situations is a recipe for disaster no matter who is QB.


Not saying Darnold isn't a bust but now he's in a situation again with a horrible oline and bad play calling.

I actually agree with you. I think he's not comfortable dropping back because he knows his pass blocking won't hold up.

The offensive line is just plain bad. Even if we figure out that Sam isn't the guy, we can't expect anyone to  succeed at QB until we get it fixed. Building a formidable offense line has got to be the top priority this off-season.

The most frustrating part about this is that the strength of our defense is negated by the weakness of the offense.

They're able to generate turnovers, superior field position, etc as often as they're able to give up points.

The offense, unfortunately, is turnover prone. Just being able to protect the ball and sustain drives will put the team in position to win. With a sieve for an OL, the literal definition of feast or famine at QB, and a second year OC it's not surprising that the wheels are starting to fall off.

Then again, this is staying in line with the whole year 2 thing for Matt Rhule teams... 😮


Though it is worth mentioning, to be fair to Sam, when he has made the throws his targets have let him down.
