    This year was not going to be about going to the playoffs. It was about preparing Sam Darnold for the future and to make sure what we have in him is good.

    Didn't you get the memo?

    We're past that sentiment...at least until we lose to the Bengals... :confused:

    He apparently has good "burst"..... But does he have good "bend"?

    I know. I'm not talking about the playoffs. I'm talking about long term development and hopefully being on the right track. I'm HIGHLY skeptical at best, and mostly just extremely doubtful. But if they play competitively against the Raiders, I might be less frustrated with the decision to commit to Gase for a whole other season.

    People may dismiss it as a puff piece but Darnold looks like a different player now.

    Na. He looks as the player he was during our final 4 or 5 games last year (where he led the NFL in QB Rating during his stretch-run).

    What's scary is that, he's looking even better currently which is a sign of something special within the makings and he's still only what 21-22 years of age he's a baby.

    The reads like fan fiction. I hope to God not a single bit of it is true. This sound like a scene from Friday night lights before they go out and beat state.

    Hmm, this might be a quarter or 3 quarter true perhaps. Raises as many questions as it answers. Doesn't help that this meeting came before one of the most embarassing defeats in our history.

    But i will stick on the rose tinted glasses seen as we are winning currently and read this as we are now going to build a new dynasty. How early can you book flights for the last 2 weeks in Jan 2021 for our home AFC championship game???

    Because the QB has to be in a system long enough for him to get a handle on what's being done, to master the fundamentals enough to decide what he's comfortable with and not comfortable with.

    Just as the HC needs the time to learn about his QB. Especially one with only a partial season of tape. He needs time given the QB has no extensive history.

    This isn't an indictment on either person

    Sam also seems like the type of kid to agree or go along with anything. I could totally see him go into any meetings with Gase and just say yeah that looks great. Oh wow that looks perfect. Never pushing back against anything he doesn't like because Gase is his coach.

    True, and lets also remember Sam totally believes in Gase and his offense. Was the one who said over and over again when he gets it down its going to be next to impossible to stop,

    Why would any coach, much less a quarterback whispering offensive guru, need somebody barging into his office to tell him his pocket was created only of fence posts with no rails?

    J'accuse!

    Which is why you need to be able to rely on your HC to be smart enough to know this, and to realize that his young, inexperienced QB might not be able to grasp all the "genius" of your HC's playbook.

    Obviously Sam was going to try his best to do what was asked of him. But he didn't have anything to compare things to, so how could he say Gase's ideas were shitty? But there was clearly a disconnect between what Gase was trying to do, and what was actually possible, and that should've been abundantly clear to Gase but somehow wasn't.

    I hope Gase has finally woken up and is now taking into account the ACTUAL ability and experience of the team he has, and not designing plays and schemes for the team he wishes he had.

    this post is truth and epic and needs to be pinned to the front page until super bowl. Not kidding.

    Last year was “all about Sam”
    The year before that was all about something else

    And so on and so forth
    It’s NEVER about winning.


    This is why many fans are so enraged

    there is always a bullshit excuse from the Johnsons

    I agree 100%. Hopefully Sam growing up and maturing woke Gase up and the O keeps rolling.

    When a coach dumbs down the playbook there's sometimes initial success, as the plays being called 'fit' the current capability of the squad.

    But it won't be long before the scaled back playbook starts to become predictable and easier to defend.

    That's why I like when we see new plays being added, like the opening play pass to Bell, or the dbl flea flicker to Anderson. As long as Gase continues to add plays, albeit 'sam friendly' plays, hopefully we won't become easy to defend and the winning will continue!
