I dont know. Im not really pushing for Darnold but i think he was a better QB under Todd Bowles. The personnel was slightly better in my opinion also. You got that veteran guy in Bowles who could coach him up and discipline him a bit. I wouldnt be surprised if the Colts had a higher view on him than we do. Im sure hes not plan A but i dont think hes plan D for us either.
Just pulling up some of these old clips on Darnold when Bowles was there i can see the talent and the pocket movement was better. So i keep kinda drawing the picture some. Get him under a vet like Reich and and an up and coming guy like Marcus Brady and maybe hes on the right track as gain. I could be wrong but just toying with the idea. Seems like it went downhill for him after Bowles left. The personnel got worse and also Gase as a head coach seems to have problems commanding respect no matter where he is. Wouldnt be the issue in Indy.
If we go with a guy like Fitz orJB, someone in that level, in my mind, we’re trying to delay the inevitable. Pulling the trigger in acquiring a top expensive QB.
This would happen if trading for a proven guy is too expensive and trading up in the draft becomes too difficult and expensive.
But if we think Eason could be the guy in 22, or we push off finding our guy until that year, then we use a bridge quarterback for a year.
