    The thought of Sam running a WCO is terrifying. You need to be decisive and accurate, two things Darnold is not. The only way I can get on board with keeping Sam is if we draft his successor in this draft. He has no future with us.

    Starting to get the yips over this coaching search. We will probably hire one of the B-list candidates or perhaps a college coordinator with zero NFL experience. I have a feeling Chris The Football Savant still has considerable influence in the coaching search even though he said it was JD's show to run. I won't be surprised at all if they fuck this hire up and the team remains in the shitter until the Johnsons sell the team.

    Who are the a list vs the b list this cycle though?

    I’m having a hard time figuring out who are top candidates and who aren’t...there’s no slam dunks but a handful of strong candidates

    Jets will probably pick wrong because it’s what they usually do but I’m not really worried about missing out on any one guy this time around

    Well KK, all of the talking heads had guys ranked from best to marginal. If you hit a few of the sport sites, you'll see the list. I agree with you that the Jets will probably fck this hire up by hiring the most marginal guy they interview.

    Tannehill had already played a couple of seasons before the "QB Killer" arrived.

    Regardless, Gase didn't really kill Tannehill off his career averages that much. The offense was stagnant and unimpressive but Tannehill was fine there.

    I remember seeing the statement that Darnold was okay with his mechanics and didn't think he needed to change them but I probably saw it here and it was probably without support because I've searched a couple of times and can't find anything to back it up. For now I'm writing it off as an unfounded rumor. Everything I've seen attributed to Darnold himself indicates he'd be open to anything that could help.

    In the course of looking is when I came across stories of his work with Palmer and his interest in the computer based work McCown was doing but I can find nothing that he ever followed through on that. Looking further into the Palmer training it seemed less than remarkable for an NFL guy even though there were a few others doing it.

    The oddest thing I have found in the course of trying to track this down is that there are guys online with computer based training, probably geared to high school kids, that seem more advanced than anything I can find that Darnold has done.

    Or maybe the oddest thing I found was that there was virtually nothing about any kind of coaching or training going on within the New York Jets organization even though it was widely recognized when he was drafted that it was a necessity.
