“People in New York know that I consider the Giants ought to have drafted him,” Darnold claimed Tuesday all through the NFL on CBS’ Tremendous Bowl push convention, when questioned his thoughts on Jets quarterback Sam Darnold by NJ Progress Media. “They drafted Saquon Barkley, and that turned out ok. I do not know if the Giants will get a Tremendous Bowl with just a operating back again.”
The discussion above whether the Giants were suitable to choose Barkley above Darnold with the No. 2 all round choose will most likely follow these two for their overall occupations, or at minimum until eventually one of them wins a Tremendous Bowl.
Barkley is amongst the frontrunners to get NFL Offensive Rookie of The Year, after racking up 2,028 yards from scrimmage and 15 overall touchdowns.
In the meantime, Darnold showed lots of guarantee as a rookie, passing for 2,865 yards and 17 touchdowns. Nonetheless, his struggles shielding the football at USC adopted him to East Rutherford, as illustrated by his 15 interceptions.
With new head coach, and renowned quarterbacks whisperer Adam Gase, Esiason sees lots of similarities between Darnold and one of the quarterbacks who will choose the subject on Sunday in Tremendous Bowl LIII.
“I consider Adam Gase is going to be wonderful for Sam Darnold,” Esiason claimed. “Sam appears to be actual fully commited. I felt like Jared Goff is critical about football. I experience that way about Josh Allen. I experience that way about Baker Mayfield, and I experience that way about Sam Darnold. I experience like they are truly into it. They want to be excellent, and they identify what it usually takes to get there.”
If Darnold is going to set the Jets in competition for Tremendous Bowls all through his occupation, Gase is going to enjoy a significant position.
“Adam’s going to be extremely difficult on him, but that is excellent.” Esisason claimed. “You have to coach these children up. If you noticed Gruden coach Derek Carr this yr, they didn’t have a excellent yr. But, I imagined they experienced a wonderful head coach-quarterback yr. He truly rode that quarterback, really hard. Which is what you want. You want that man to have thick-skin, so when the sport is on the line late, he can pull it out for you.
“This is what Belichick has performed to Brady above the earlier 19 decades. People today just do not understand it. When you’re all over them, Brady’s just one of the fellas. Tom’s inclined to choose coaching and criticism to the level the place the other fellas have to as properly. If he’s foremost by case in point, everybody’s got to follow. I consider Darnold can be that way.”
Esiason isn’t the initially individual in NFL circles to believe Gase will do the job wonders for Darnold’s occupation.
Eagles large receiver Alshon Jeffery believes that Darnold has the opportunity to compete for Tremendous Bowls, and MVPs, taking part in in Gase’s method.
“His impression will be enormous,” Jeffery advised NJ Progress Media at NovaCare Intricate earlier this month. “I consider Darnold will excel. Figuring out the Adam Gase that I know, and the opportunity the Jets are on the lookout for, I’m really confident Sam is going to be a Tremendous Bowl MVP. He can get a Tremendous Bowl.
