  • And sam will have a stud rb just like tanehill....

  • I think I'm about done with every espn commentator when it comes to these takes. Ryan was a back to back 4000 yard passer with Gase and battled through multiple injuries and got Miami to the playoffs. Darnold has been statistically the worst QB in the nfl and can barely break 200yds a game. Please tell me how this is eeriely similar? Sam is a bust. 22 turnovers his jr. Year at USC, he can't read a defense, he can't move an offense but the narrative will still stand because nobody wants to admit that he SUCKS. Chris simms is the only analyst that said Darnold coming out of the draft was only worth a second round pick and everyone else had him in the top 5. Enough of this

  • So ready for football this covid sucks so badd!!!!

  • Panthers have got to get a left tackle and a guard I played football long it all starts up front yalll know

  • As a panther fan hate drama hope both our teams have some good games this year and covid goes away!!!!

  • I love GREENY!!! Tru Jets fan!!

  • 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.

  • At least Sam Darnold is not on his fourth team fighting for a #3 job like Chosen Blosen "the most NFL ready"

  • as a Jets fan he never had a chance

  • Please crybaby Greenberg please find another team to root for

  • "And with the first pick in 2024 NFL draft, the Jets select Arch Manning, quarterback, Tennessee."

  • Go Sam!, we're moving to Carolina with you. Were o er 3000 fans in my group.

  • People wanna talk about Sam darnold getting ruined and don’t wanna talk about josh Rosen terrible situation

  • Joe Burrow was a third round trade the yrs before, then lit it up. Don't understand the confusion about Mac Jones.

  • All were good players, if they still had them they might have a team, but to much organizational disfunction.

  • The Names Coples and Milliner still give me Agita. Pryors lucky I remember Richard more than Calvin.

  • Yea except darnold doesn’t have multiple 4000 yard seasons

  • This sums up PERFECTLY how I feel about all of this. I hope the Jets draft Sewell and trade for Watson. That's the only way this can be made up to me.

  • 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.

  • Sam darnold has a chance to be a top 5 qb with the talent in carolina, if he has any talent. I think Sam will be a good qb. Hopefully he proves me right

  • Really wanted him in Washington!!!!

  • I wouldn't even let Adam Gase sell hotdogs in my stadium, if I owned a team.

  • Wonder if cherry-picked stats, scapegoating Adam Gase, and wishful thinking, may prevent Sam Darnold from becoming another Chuck Long.

  • 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.

  • The imaginary technician traditionally bore because gym temporally hunt without a orange throat. noxious, probable inventory

  • Wilkerson was a dawg though

  • Zach Wilson is next on the exit train following Sam. Congrats to Darnold, he’s going to do well in Carolina.

  • Sam Darnold has a fat head

  • Good luck to Zach Wilson in NY

  • Well Said Greenie... You spoke that exact sentiments that many jet fans feel.

  • The lions are still worse than the Jets one playoff win since 1958

  • 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.

  • Or it can just be Darnold isn’t that goooood

  • 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.

  • Availability bias. That’s the reason why this feels similar.

  • Tannehill was a better player with the Dolphins that had Game and also a not so great team … Mike G. isn’t one to align with because his opinions usually are too emotional and miss the evidence on the playing field.

  • Darnold is better than Tannehill? Do better Greeny

  • Wasn't Daniel Jeremiah talking about Wilson last year? I think I remember him talking to Rich Eisen about the BYU kid

  • Well this was incredibly self-indulgent

  • Greeny vs Gase

  • They want Darnald to be good soooooo bad lol this is getting sad

  • 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!

  • I knew he was big mad when he took his glasses off🤣🤣

  • Greeny's hatred for Gase is next level.He truly Loathes that cokehead that is Gase, and rightfully so.

    • Many Jet fans feel the same way towards Gase.. even people that don't know football had an uneasy feeling when he was hired. ..and if this new rebuild doesn't work out.. ownership HAS TO SELL the JETS.

  • A lot feel this way. We will get out time.

  • poor zach wilson.....this scenario will be repeated in 3 years

  • The Adam Gase effect is in full display, Gase should catch the Bears next season🤷‍♂️😂

  • Darnold is not better than Tannehill

  • Agree 100000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000% (Insert LOTS of comma's)

  • All UP from Here ...

  • Except Tannehill actually produced while on the Dolphins

    • @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.

    • Whatcha talkin about Willis?

  • I praying you’re right Greeny. I do think Carolina will go Slator or Sewell. If not them then maybe Surtain. I can see them landing Pitts or taking a WR when they have Robby & DJ. Panthers could honestly trade back

  • Adam Gase should only be an offensive coordinator assistance, head coaching is not for him IM SO HAPPY HES OUT OF MIA IM STILL PISSED OFF HE TRADED LAUNDRY👉😠👈

  • Lol

  • The Jets are making a big mistake. I would have kept Darnold, moved down so I can get Sewell and a good WR. Or maybe Parsons.

    • they will pick a non qb in 2021 and pick another usc trojan qb in 2022 lol

  • Tannehill never sucked like Darnold...Greenberg doesn't have a clue

  • Was anyone talking about Joe Burrow in 2018 Greeny?

  • Oh you feel that too huh 🥺

  • Sam darnold is NOT better than tannehill! Just stop! 😂😂

  • Greeny hates his own team so much he's rooting for Darnold in Carolina lol

  • Tanahlll actually made good decisions ...DARNOLD WILL BE OUT OF FOOTBALL 3 years BTW GREENIE Sammy IS not a VICTIM!!! Your a TOOL

  • Wow Greeny really? Did you think this up all by yourself?

  • Absolutely Correct! I Hate The JETS For This Stupid Move.

  • Sam better improve his TD to interception ratio or he’ll be out on the street.

    • Coaching is everything in football.. he is in good hands now.

  • 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...

  • People act like Mac won the heisman smh

  • Good thing Mel Kiper Jr. has a horrible track record

  • this is what espn needs more of

  • I think its more similar to the Drew Bress trade early in his career. But what can we say only time will tell

  • As a Giant fan that year I was mad we didn’t draft Sam Darnold, then I saw the Jets draft him and knew he was an automatic bust. The Jets are the “Mush” of the NFL.

  • It’s not similar. At least Tannehill had a couple decent seasons and led his team to the playoffs. Darnold has been awful

  • They better hope Wilson isn't Mitch Trubisky and Darnold turns into a bettrer player then Tannenhill and leads Carolina to a SB that would suck😬

  • Dee Millner had a million surgeries coming out of college and they still drafted him.

  • Greeny rants about the Jets is like Stephen A with the Knicks. I love it! 😂

  • Mohamed Wilkerson wasn't a bad pick, they got that pick correct.

  • No it doesn’t!... No it doesn’t! Darnold’s trade feels like Fitzpatrick transitioning to another team ‘cept, Fitzpatrick is actually a BETTER QB. Darnold’s a poor man’s Ryan Fitzpatrick. Darnold is Bizarro to Fitzpatrick’s Supes.

  • This tannehill comparison is a joke! Look at Tannehill stats first 3 yrs then look at Darnolds it's not close Tannehill never played that bad never looked that terrible wish you all stop with this bs

  • Shoutout to Greeny for not abandoning his team lol

  • Go check out my sports channel pls

  • 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. It sucks it really does but don't blame the current staff for the demons of the past. We're headed in the right direction. JD needs to see his full Jets contract through.

  • The Jets are such a dumb organization. They’ll draft Zach Wilson and still have a terrible offensive line, while Sam Darnold goes on to have a great career.

  • amen.

  • You have a 24 hr rule because you need to be able to move on and devote your attention to the next inevitable disaster. Can't wait to see what the Jets blow today.

  • One thing is a fact. His turnover ratio is a stain going back from usc into the pros. Numbers don’t lie. I hope he does well.

  • The only difference between Tannehill and Darnold is that Ryan Tannehill IS accurate from a clean pocket and Sam Darnold is NOT accurate from a clean pocket.

  • As a jets fan at this point the only thing I can hope For is the panthers to really stink up the joint to make that second round pick better next draft and hope and pray Zach Wilson is everything he’s supposed to be

  • 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 🤣

  • People in these comments obviously don’t live in New York and was forced to watch all New York teams and if u guys think darnold is gonna take the panthers to the next level must only watch good highlights of his

  • I think he’ll be good for us keep pounding!

  • Oh come on, can they stop with the Sam Darnold fiasco,

  • We all know Sam is gonna win MVP. Superbowl MVP. Rookie of the year (because he's getting a do over)... He's gonna win coach of the year and win the 2024 election simply because he's not on the Jets.

  • Greeny sums it all.

  • 28 passing touchdowns and 7 interceptions is what I predict Sam is going to post this season, with a QBR of maybe 98.1, 3,000 passing yards, maybe 3 rushing touchdowns. Yep. He can be better than Tannehill.

  • I love the Greeny rants lol

  • As a Jets fan the smart decision draft Trey Lance or Justin Fields. But we all know they going to do something dumb don’t be suprised they draft someone who supposed to go in the third round at the number 2 pick

  • Ryan tannehill had good football season..

  • I’ve been saying it from the beginning. SAM DARNOLD was on the wrong team!...Now watch how he plays with a different team

  • You have to get Joe Benigno as a guest with Greeny!

  • Poor Burrow. He had to be drafted by the Bengals-a Bengals fan
