Simply put, if Daniel Jones can significantly clean up the fumbles, Baker, Ballentine, Love and Beal can get quality experience and learn, and Dex & Williams can gel together, kidding aside, I would be happy. That is the measuring stick for my "success" for November and December.
Yes, I would love to beat the Jets this weekend. I suspect these teams will stumble and bumble the ebb and flow of the game back and forth until someone is ahead when the clock strikes zero. I think a "win" for both teams would be a solid, competitive contest where both Darnold and Jones play well. I say that, because there has been this underlying narrative that ones success will be at the expense of the other. Claims of "Darnold sucks, Jones is awesome. Jones sucks, Darnold is the guy we should have drafted" ! What if both turn out to be real good, franchise starters? I feel that scenario is rarely discussed. Just maybe we both have our guy.
Anyway, back to the point, wins and losses mean absolutely nothing to me after this Jets game. Health matters (don't get Jones killed) and draft position matters. Securing a stud tackle, LB or DE matters.
I'm not looking for the second layer of those aforementioned positions in the 2020 draft. I want THE guy. An immediate starter, an immediate culture changer, an impact stud. Would love for Jones to have his blind side buddy locked up for a decade. Two guys practically entering the league together.
Here's to the holidays ahead. Here's to our sanity. Stay safe Daniel Jones. Go Blue
