I just had this same conversation last night, not in the mood. Fine lets waste a 1st on a QB that is doomed before he is ever drafted. 

Yes let’s draft a rookie QB like basically every other successful franchise. 
 

 Almost it’s every rookie will take their lumps, Herbert and Burrow had horrible lines last year, that didn’t deter them.

Burrow got destroyed last year and the Bengals are lucky he has returned to form.

Herbert is an outlier.

Neither of them had Joe Brady as their OC

I honestly felt we hadn't seen worse QB play in our franchise history over a sustained period of time because Teddy was so conservative overall, combined with his clutch mistakes, and losing whatever it was, 8 or 9 games on the last drive.  But, then along came Sam...  I figured as long as we got a guy that was somewhat accurate and willing to go downfield, we would win several more games.  And here we are now with Sam having a lower yards per attempt than even Captain of the Checkdown Teddy.  

I will also say, as the year went on, Teddy did get worse and mistakes more obvious than early in the season, Sam has just got the jump on him because he's been doing it here and there for weeks already and is generally costing us games before we get to the 4th.

But, now with hindsight and more perspective 6 weeks into this season, two things are clear - a lot of Teddy's problems were Brady being a horrible coordinator, and two, Sam is indeed a horrible QB.

I said it in the gamethread Sunday, but if they want to salvage anything from this season, they are better off going ahead and starting PJ before we get too upside down on our record.

Skunking the Lions wasn’t nearly as impressive as the Saints win. Stafford was hurt and literally couldn’t throw the ball that game. The Lions with an ineffective Stafford is garbage. The D gave up 0 points, not PJ. His best game ever and he still throws 2 interceptions and has 1 TD? Sam looked better in each of the first four weeks than PJ looked against Detroit.

Would PJ have had that 96 yard drive with the drops? I’d say no, but have fun. I’d love to see PJ in there now. I don’t know if Sam is the answer but damn, I’d love to see that train wreck.

If a D gives up zero points in the NFL….the O is part of that equation. 

point remains, PJ is more a lateral move than anything.   He isn’t going to tank us vs trotting Sam out there.  Sam isn’t in some wildly different tier. 

PJ completed 70% of his passes and would have been near 80% of his passes if not for drops.  It’s was a decent debut game.  Did he have two bad throws in the red zone?  Yeah, but our starter outed the team as not even letting him get the reps needed there. And one of the playcalls on one was horrific for a guy making his first NFL start. 

again, I am not under the illusion PJ is anything more than a backup.   But that’s is what Sam is.  That’s the point.    And PJ isn’t Jimmy Clausen.   He doesn’t implode your ability to compete vs what else we have trotted out there in recent years.  Because none of them should be starting.  It’s a lateral move at the end of the day.

if Sam had a PJ Lions game….the Sam fanboys would be peacocking around and using it as an example that Sam can play.   Joe Brady just bashed for those horrible redzone calls...and all the attention on everything minus 2 throws.   I mean, Sam was praised for the Jets game, in case there is any doubt.

I do think we will need to draft a rookie for long term success but I think they're really going to struggle behind our OL.  I think we will see which prospects look decent too as the college season goes on... I wouldn't be surprised with another retread after trying to rebuild the OL and going for a rookie in the following draft.

Zac Taylor is worse and don’t get me started on Lynn. The fact is good QB can overcome bad lines. The majority of the league had bad lines.

Delhomme and Newton are the two lone long term starting quarterbacks for the Panthers in a quarter century through numerous coaches. People are right to question what they are seeing you can't ignore that kind of history and odds are not in Darnold's favor with how he is turning the ball over. If you're good with Sam cool. Not everybody else has to feel that way.

What's the point in starting PJ if he isn't an upgrade?  I'm not sure it is a lateral move.

Why are we acting like PJs Lions Game was very good?  He had 2 interceptions and we would have won with a stuffed doll of Kyle Allen.  

Darnold isn't our answer but holy hell neither is PJ Walker.  

Edit: also lol Darnold has had 4 starts objectively better than PJs Lions gsd, what do you mean his fanboys would be Peacocking over it??

I'm not good with Darnold but acting like these 6 games are the worst a Panthers QB had played is asinine.  That's what Oldham was responding to.

We have 1 pick in the first and no more picks until round 4. If we pick a QB with our first he damn well better be a franchise QB, not like the bums that came out this season.

What's the point?  Well, to an extent it is just rearranging the chairs on the Titanic.  and again, no one is claiming PJ Walker is the answer here. 

I guess the real point of inserting him...would just be officially ending the delusion that Sam Darnold potentially is.    And it would force us to address QB again.  Instead of risking the odds of rolling into another season with Sam starting for us. 

So to me it isn't about PJ at all.  It's about forcing this team off Sam and not letting the mistake continue into next year.  

and if we lose the next 2 I will officially hold that position.  Probably even if we go 1-1 over the next two games.    Sam is what he is.   He is a backup QB and I think there are backups in the NFL who might be better than him.

You've been open about your dislike of Darnold. That's fine.  I don't think he's the answer here either.

But, what about the Teddy experience suggests to you the team needs to do what you're proposing?  Just seems unnecessary.

Yes I agree that is a reactionary statement. But on the other end of the spectrum you have folks here still talking Sam up like he's a rookie and not a fourth year starter with 8 turnovers in three games.

    • There are very very few HCs that go beyond 10 years with one team, it’s almost unheard of. And it certainly does not consist of coaches not being able to win back to back season or who averages 8 wins a season over that span  with a team full of talent. Ron does best when his back is against the wall and he is forced to make moves. Aka injured starters, losing record etc. Notice ones the WFT started losing he is taking big chances in games. I think he goes for it on 4th more than anyone. Ron has grit. He will rally poor talent. He will make anyone soft tougher, he won’t have a really shirt 1/2 win season. However when he has choices, when he has options, and he must evaluate…he will fail. He cannot and will not adapt when his way does not work. His and Fox’s mantra has always been screw mismatches, schemes, or attacking vulnerabilities. It’s 1v1, man vs. man. Period. No matter what. And let the best man win, and if he’ll lose, it’ll be his way. This will breed mediocre success and, with the right personal, it can even go pretty far. Hell in the 90s, I think he would easily be a SB winning coach. However today there are two problems with that model, the inability to adapt. First there is no consistency. It won’t hold up over a period of time. Second, players now are different as are coaches.   They adapt and scheme, analytics and all that. They are playing positions differently. If you aren’t able to adapt and utilize the modern talent of players like Cam, CMC, or even Luke (towards the end of his career in the 3-4), aren’t able to evaluate talent on the sidelines but instead go for heart of a player,  ‘lose my way’ path of evaluating, instead trying to foster/come up with ideas for new talent, it will never be sustainable. All that said, in summary, he is a good ‘rollercoaster’ coach with the right personnel, in the right circumstance, with his back up against the wall. Living and dying by the sword will being some success, no failure, and a mass amount of mediocrity.
    • This needs to happen at minimum. I really do question his eye for talent. If he doesn't like it, then he goes the way of Chip Kelly.
