Sam Darnold Needs to be Saved From Adam Gase and The Jets

Tonight on Thursday Night Football, there is a disgusting matchup between the 0-3 New York Jets and 0-3 Denver Broncos. Jets Head Coach Adam Gase may be coaching for his job, while the Broncos will be trotting out undrafted free agent quarterback Brett Rypien for what will be his first career NFL start. It is truly a matchup no one really wants to see. I don’t even know if the fans of each respective team wants to watch this game.

With that being the case, I am not going to write about this game. Instead, I am going to write about how Jets quarterback Sam Darnold needs to be saved from that abysmal franchise and head coach. Darnold, the third overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, has loads of talent and is still only 23-years-old. The former USC product is actually younger than rookie quarterback Joe Burrow, and second year signal callers Dwayne Haskins and Daniel Jones.

Darnold still has loads of talent, and has shown that on the field multiple times. So when you combine that with how young he is, there is definitely still a chance he becomes a solid, reliable NFL quarterback. But to do that, he needs to get away from Gase and the Jets.

I say both the Jets and Gase because they both seem to ruin players. I guess that connotation coincides more with Gase, but when former pro-bowlers like Le’Veon Bell and Trumaine Johnson go to New York and suddenly become trash, something has to be up.

I know that may have to with both age, and them receiving their “bag” but the Jets continue to stink year in and year out. Their last winning season came all the way back in 2015 when Ryan Fitzpatrick was their quarterback. Still, the main culprit in the lack of Darnold’s success has to be Adam Gase.

There have been repeated instances of players moving on from the coach and succeeding right after the fact. I don’t think it would be any different with Sam Darnold.

Examples of players improving outside of Gase’s coaching include quarterback Ryan Tannehill, wide receiver DeVante Parker and running back Kenyan Drake. The most recent example being wideout Robby Anderson, who has already posted two 100 yard games this season after leaving New York for Carolina in the offseason.

So please, for all that is good, get Sam Darnold from out of the mess that is New York. But at this point, I don’t know if that will happen anytime soon. Talk about sad!
