Was anyone impressed by Darnold

CMicks3110 : 11/10/2019 8:49 pm
just curious?
Not really  
cjac : 11/10/2019 8:50 pm : link
He did just ok against the worst D in the NFL
Iíve always been a Darnold guy  
JoeyBigBlue : 11/10/2019 8:50 pm : link
He showed his best attribute today, throwing on the run. The guy is still a work in progress, but thereís a lot to like about him.
He played well under pressure  
Simms11 : 11/10/2019 8:51 pm : link
IMO
He was pretty good.  
81_Great_Dane : 11/10/2019 8:51 pm : link
Hard to gauge against the Giants. Is Darnold good? is the D terrible? What does it tell us when he completes a pass.

He made some plays. Made some very nice throws and decisions under duress. No turnovers, which is a big thing for him. He didn't have a running game either but found ways to keep drives alive.

His ability to throw on the run is impressive. Sadly he stuck in a bad org like Jones
Not really, no  
Oscar : 11/10/2019 8:52 pm : link
Heís in basically the same situation as Jones though, shitty team around him, shitty coach. He could be good but there are not many young QBs who can elevate an awful franchise.
For being 22 years old  
chuckydee9 : 11/10/2019 8:54 pm : link
He isn't bad and who knows he still has the potential to be great.. Darnold is actually younger than Daniel Jones..
I like Jones a lot better.

One thing  
lax counsel : 11/10/2019 8:56 pm : link
He did very well was move around in the pocket and throw on the run. Would like to see more of that from Jones. I think Jones is a much better passer from the pocket, however.
he was  
AndyMilligan : 11/10/2019 8:56 pm : link
pretty good. i dont think there is any reason to like him more or less than Jones at this juncture.

Agreed. But Barkley plus Jones is obviously greater than Darnold.
Did he fumble the ball 3 times today  
M.S. : 11/10/2019 8:58 pm : link
Like our guy?

Jones has zero pocket awareness.

I'm a lot more worried about DJ than Sam Darnold.

We could end up with a journeyman QB if he doesn't clean up the fumbling.
Darnold  
Paulie Walnuts : 11/10/2019 9:00 pm : link
Looked like an NFL QB
I won't take off points for the defense he played  
BestFeature : 11/10/2019 9:01 pm : link
a) You can only play who you play

b) It drives me crazy when people say Jones played against a shitty defense. This early on in their careers, it's impressive if you have a good game against anyone.

That said he made good plays in the beginning and end and didn't do shit in the middle though that's in part due to his shit team. B/B+ game.
Darnold

His receivers are actually worse then ours.

Did he throw for 300+ yards and 4 TDs like our guy? You ignore the good to focus only on the bad. Par for the course for this fanbase.
Just like college  
Dave on the UWS : 11/10/2019 9:08 pm : link
all his best plays are street ball plays outside the pocket.
anyone besides....

Really? Crowder, Anderson, and Thomas are worse than our receivers...how so?
He made some incredible throws

Tom in NY  
Marty866b : 11/10/2019 9:13 pm : link
Thomas is washed up, I'll take Tate over Crowder,Shepard over Anderson, and Engram with Barkley out of the backfield. It's argumentative who is really better but the Jets don't overwhelm anyone at the skill positions.
Most people are shoehorning both QBs performances

into their already-established narratives. We don't use all available evidence to come to a conclusion. We filter the evidence to support our immutable opinions.

It's one of modern mans most loathsome traits. And it's fucking rampant here.

That's definitely not accurate.
Darnold looked good...  
bw in dc : 11/10/2019 9:23 pm : link
on he move, especially to his right. And he didn't appear to be looking at the rush or feeling ghosts. So the Jets have to feel better after two horrible weeks for Darnold...
I wasnít impressed

Even if you believe Jones is better than Darnold, at least today Barkley plus Jones was not greater than Darnold.
I thought he was fine. Played well under pressure.  
Blue21 : 11/10/2019 9:37 pm : link
He wasn't the difference but managed the game well. I'm sure he was happy after the way he's played lately. Ironically this always seems to happen to Giants with struggling and backup QB's. Between the two at this point I'll take Jones but who knows how it will go a few years from now.

PatersonPlank : 11/10/2019 9:43 pm : link
a JAG at QB. Might be a low end starter like Dalton, might be a journeyman.

Plus he's a Jet so he sucks
I thought he played well.

His ability to make plays under duress was impressive.

Mike from Ohio : 11/10/2019 9:50 pm : link
Yes, Darnold played well today. He made several good throws under duress and made several plays with his legs.

Itís a wonderful narrative for the Giants if Darnold is a bust, but he isnít. Still way too early for any conclusions about either Darnold or Jones. Both are playing in bad organizations with little talent around them.

+2.
I thought he managed the situations well.  
Jimmy Googs : 11/10/2019 9:57 pm : link
Seemed to avoid the rush without putting the ball in harms way. Took advantage of numerous "over"-rushes by Golden. And when he got into position to be aggressive with throws he took advantage of our rookie CB.

He did a nice job and got the W...
he didn't gift the giants 7 points like jones did.  
japanhead : 11/10/2019 10:08 pm : link
you know, the number of points the giants lost by? he also converted a big third down as he was about to be sacked.

Yes, I was impressed.  
Tesla : 11/10/2019 10:39 pm : link
He played pretty well. Made some great throws and made a bunch of plays out of nothing. Didn't make many mistakes and not turnovers.

Oh yeah, and he won. Not that something like that matters around here.

What the hell was not to like???

This is just asinine. Look at the first and second round draft picks for the Giants from 2018 on that play. They were both physically manhandled, but yeah, let's spout nonsense about Jones gifting the Jets points.

the cowboys points last week. at least ten. with a defense like this, that's a problem.

looked fine, but we're the get well soon card of Ds. Having a bad year? We're here to help!
Both Qb's played well  
giantstock : 11/11/2019 2:23 am : link
I got to love some homer GMEN fans looking to push Darnold down. It's laughable.

ANd for any GMAN fan knocking DJ-- you're nuts.

With that said it's okay to pick a little with each player.

Your post is nonsense. Jones played well but are you that thick that you can't understand that it wasn't Hernandez or Barkley that got the ball ripped out of his hands? It wasn't even a fumble. Jones didn't even give the defense a chance. Homerism from some of you knows no bounds.

Here's a news flash for you" Joens is not obligated to fumble or get the ball ripped out of his hands over 1 time per game.

Who? Their OL is as bad as ours. Bell has had a putrid year. Am I supposed to be confusing their receivers for Julio, Ridley, and Hooper?

And Gase is a disaster.

So where is this ďmore around himĒ?

bc4life : 11/11/2019 12:00 pm : link
people just following bad press.

Giants sacked him, got pressure - but their failure to maintain rushing lane discipline and failure to contain him made him look better than he is,
