When Will The Jets Give Sam Darnold A Competent Supporting Cast?
Nobody actually watches the games. They look at their little box score and think that tells the story. There is nobody that could have watched Sam Darnold a year ago and thought he doesn’t have what it takes to become a bonafide franchise quarterback. I’m not sure anybody has a worse supporting cast. It’s time to hold the Jets accountable, not Darnold.
Sam Darnold found a way to go 7-6 last year while recovering from mono with the worst roster in the league. Does anybody understand how impossible that is?
Darnold’s offensive line is a flat out joke. A year ago, Darnold faced pressure on 42 percent of his drop backs. That mark was tied for the league lead. Daniel Jones was tied for that number but he also fumbled 18 times in 13 games. Darnold actually won games while basically running for his life every other play.
What did the Jets do about it? HMMM… Let’s give George Fant a bunch of money. Is this some sort of a sick joke? Let’s throw a dart throw on Mekhi Becton who I don’t feel like is close to a sure thing. Hey, don’t worry, at least we don’t have to pick Ryan Khalil out of retirement this time. Joe Douglas has done a piss poor job fixing the problem.
Don’t even get me started on Le’Veon Bell who was statistically the worst or 2nd worst running back in football. They threw the brinks truck at a torn to shreds Maurice Clarrett. Joke, joke, and joke. That’s what the Jets are.
Robby Anderson was the Jets number one wide receiver. Did they keep him? God, no. In comes Breshard Perriman who was labeled a bust. Oh, and Denzel Mims who can’t catch. Something called Ryan Griffin is their lead tight end who couldn’t make the Texans roster. Joke, joke, and joke. That’s what the Jets are.
Let’s play a game. Don’t cheat either. Below I’m going to list some questions. You try to answer them.
Jets Leaders from 2019.
- Sack artist
- Interception leader
The correct answers would be James Burgess, Jordan Jenkins, and Neville Hewitt. Again, I wish I was kidding. That’s the Jets. This is the defense the Jets have assembled to try to help out their emerging young quarterback. Joke, joke, and joke. That’s what the Jets are.
Lamar Jackson doesn’t go 7-6 with the Jets roster. I can promise you that. Here’s my question… when are we going to hold the Jets accountable for being a shitty organization? This isn’t close to an acceptable supporting cast. I haven’t even gotten into Adam Gase. It’s funny how Ryan Tannehill, Kenyan Drake, and DaVante Parker have all suddenly gotten better overnight.
If you don’t think Sam Darnold is a really good quarterback, you don’t know football. I encourage you to go back and watch the Cowboys game. It was like watching Troy beat Alabama if Troy had a good quarterback and Alabama didn’t. For the love of god, can we just get Sam Darnold a little bit of help?
