    I believe in what Douglas is doing. As bad as Gase is I do not see what everyone else see in Darnold. I wish him well but I feel like everyone is wrong about this how good Darnold will be.

    Good riddance to Darnold. The guy never played a full season. Now he can go play his 8 or 9 games a year for a different team. As a Jet fan I look at as addition by subtraction.

    So Bridgewater threw 15 tds and 11 ints under Rhule and Brady so I am not going to say they are masters at improving QBs at the NFL level, sorry. I've watched every single Darnold game and while he make incredible throws at times, he misses easy ones and wide open guys more than you would like. A coach is supposed to get players open and a QB is supposed to execute the play. Neither Gase or Darnold lived up to that.

    C'mon now, Sponge Bob Squarepants Dork Darnold could not carry Tannehills jock. Ryan was a college WR. Anyone think Potatoe head could line up at receiver? I held up a grade of D when Darnold was drafted I was there and in the minority. Not impressed. Unathletic, no confidence, turnover machine at USC too. Kermit the Frog biased Jets fan boy Mikey Greenie is clue less just like Jason Smith declaring Darnold as Joe Namath, now crickets.

    Its a new atart for rhe woeful Jets. Getting rid of Gase was the best development this decade. Only rhat the Johnsons' appear to be allowing Joe Douglas run the show without their interference. Finally, there's no blame for Sam. Its a matter of timing and contracts. There's hipe the team may be headed in the right direction at last. Still, this is the Jets we're talking about.

    The New York Jets!!!!!!????? They have a terrible history of making the wrong moves. They should have kept Sam and build a decent team and coaching staff around the former first round pick. They should have traded the #2 pick for a bunch of first round picks in 2021 and 2022/23. They never make the right moves. And I'm a Jets fan! This cycle of questionable decisions never seems to end. We'll see. I think Sam will go to Carolina and show out!

    @Colby Naranjo Tannehill had 3 straight 24+ passing TD seasons in Miami with Gase. Darnold hasn't had any seasons above 20 passing TDs in New York with Gase. The difference is one produced in the face of adversity and the other flopped.

    i gotta tell yah. this is like lookin into a mirror. This frustration isn't an overnight thing, we Jet Fans are so beat down with all the quarterback mishaps and fiscal blunders. the fact that we went from drafting a solid, stable quarterback to hiring a failing coach who we saw twice a year and surrounding him with nothing, firing our GM after the draft, and wasting that poor guy within 3 years, is such a painful thing to see. Sam reminded me of chad pennington. oh, the good ole days...

    ESPN is so clearly against Tua but loves Darnold. Darnold had “a bad offensive play caller, bad O-line, no weapons” but act like Tua is throwing to All-Pros, an O-line full of HoF’s, and has the greatest play caller of all time. I know Darnold had it bad with Gase, I’m a Dolphins fan, he was absolutely terrible. But Tua has played nine games, Darnold has has a whole rookie contract and all of ESPN wants Tua gone but Darnold is the second coming of Brady somehow. If Darnold doesn’t get the starting job over Bridgewater, I guess Matt Rhule is trash all of a sudden.

    Greeny fails to realize that the Jets are in the same spot MIA was when they released Adam Gase. It is for the betterment of the team overalls.

    Part of Jets fans obsession with Darnold I think is because the Giants passed on him. Jets fans really wanted Darnold to haunt the Giants for years by having a Hall of Fame career and winning a SB for Jets. They wanted to finally overshadow their big brother. Sorry didn't happen. Lol 🤣
