this would be quite funny


Recommended Posts

Someone on the Jets forum suggested tanking for Lawrence then trading Darnold to the Colts for a 3rd rounder 

 

This means the trade would be:

 

Colts get

 

OL Quenton Nelson

OL Braden Smith

DE Kemoko Turay

RB Jordan Wilkins

CB Rock Ya-Sin

QB Sam Darnold

 

Jets get

 

3rd Rounder in 21'

 

:lol:

 

I think we win

I don't want Darnold though

This thought has crossed my mind in the last week or so, if I'm honest. I haven't paid much attention to Darnold's career outside of the "ghosts" and knowing the Jets haven't been good. Not sure how Darnold has looked, but who knows how he would progress outside of Gase's clutches (exhibit A: Tannehill). Darnold/Eason would make for a fun TC battle for Rivers backup in his final season and potential QB of the future. If I'm not mistaken, Darnold was super young coming out.

I would trade a 3rd rounder for Darnold in a heartbeat. Darnold is only 23, and Adam Gase has ruined this kid with the way he runs that Jets team. Everyone who leaves an Adam Gase coached team does better somewhere else. Take him for a 3rd, and have him battle it out with Eason and possibly Kelly next year to see who will be our franchise QB while using our 1st and 2nd rounder to fill big needs at CB/EDGE/WR with two elite players.

I'd rather go all-in with Eason and keep the 3rd rounder.

Darnold is far and away better than Eason.

Darnold is a legit early 1st rounder. He just needs the proper coaching and development. I would give them Eason AND a 3rd rounder for Darnold.

Not every Colt player is wonderful and every non-Colt is a bust.

Eason is just going to be another Mason Rudolph backup at best...not even as good as Chad Kelly.

He beat out Kelly may be because of limited TC & Preseason and that he was a 4th rnd pick  over a FA pick up but the coaches seem to like him better and have talkewd about his progress & they haven't not praised Kelly  that I am aware of...

 USC quarterbacks have not been that great in the NFL... basically they are back ups with short careers...

jus sayin...

Darnold is worth a 3rd rounder. Eason hasn't played a down yet and we don't  know what he is and Darnold has been dumbed down playing with a horrible organization. 

That would give us 2 young QB's with physical talent and maybe,with good coaching we can hit with 1 of them.

Well the name of the thread is 'this would be quite funny.' 

You forgot to add in your opinion. There is no proof of your comment.

If the Jets secure the #1 pick, everyone in the league knows Lawrence is the pick. Darnold would be entering his fourth year and have an almost $10mil salary in 2021. Those factors together make trading Darnold a pipe dream for getting a 3rd round pick. 

 

Also, assuming the trade happens prior to or during the 2021 draft, the Colts would only have a month to determine whether they wanted to pull the trigger on the 5th year option. For comparison purposes,  the Bears Mitch Trubisky would have have had a 5th year option of $24 million.

the act of typing a response on this "forum" is a reflection of one's opinion. In 10 plus years on this "thing" I have seen no proof to back up any comments from anyone on here ever. Nor will there ever be. Get a life. this is pure entertainment and nothing more.

    • Sure.  He can backup Eason on the practice squad 
    • There is nothing more vital than QBs and receiving talent.
    • Yeah, that's what I got from his press-conference too. That's what I got from Ballard's presser earlier this month too - he will prefer addressing QB with a vet.    Yep. Ballard said something similar to that effect too - they think they are close. I think they are somewhat close, but I do think several positions(most important ones) need addressing and we will need injury luck. I don't think we are Matt Stafford away. I think we are Matt Stafford, good LT, good WR, good DE and good CB away... and that's assuming good health. In essence, my position right now is - if you are getting Stafford, you better be ready to address all those other positions or you are wasting your resources on a team that will ultimately come short.    That's the thing. I think there is a good option. Not ideal, but good. It's trading up in the draft for one of the top 4 prospects. I think all of them are high level prospects that can be franchise QBs. This is a good draft. This is the type of draft you trade up in for the guy you love. Here comes the less than ideal part - this would mean we probably take a slight step back next year. But again... we have SO MANY high value positions unaddressed that we might take a step back either way unless we are ready to go all in with Stafford. Right at this moment we are a worse team than last year. Our franchise LT just retired. Our QB just retired. We have TY, Houston, Autry, Rhodes, Walker, Carrie, Muhammad, Burton, Alie Cox ... to re-sign. So... our best WR, both our starting DEs, both our starting outside corners(by the end Carrie was getting more snaps than Rock), 2 of 3 TEs, our starting MIKE, our backup DE...   In essence we have 70M cap to address: QB, LT, 2xDE, 2xCB, MIKE, 1 or 2 WRs, possibly TE... I'm not sure we will be able to.    Holy moly, the more I look at our situation the more I don't like where we are and the more I think Stafford won't be enough to even get us to this year's level. I don't know... I have to rethink things... I might do another mock off-season post Senior Bowl to put my thoughts on paper and see how it shakes up if we have to trade up multiple high level picks for Stafford. 
    • Judging by what Irsay had to say at his year ender,  it doesn't look like that Ballard will wait to the draft to pull the trigger, unless he strikes out in a trade for every veteran we've talked about.   From Stafford, to Rodgers, to Ryan,  to Carr,  to Garropolo and so on....   Irsay was saying he, Ballard and Frank all think they're close.  (his words)  So, the quickest and most direct path to future success is a trade for a veteran (my words, but his implication)    Irsay didn't rule out a draft pick in April.     I suspect you're old enough to understand the concept I'm about to address.   I think one of the most interesting concepts adults deal with in all walks of life is that sometimes,  there are no good options.   There are only poor options or bad options.  And the job is to try and figure out which option is the least bad.   I'm not just talking sports,  but all things in life.   Sometimes there just are no good options.   And, I think the Colts are pretty close to being there.   But, you find the best choice there is and chalk it up to the price of doing business in the NFL.     What else can we do?   Sorry if this got preachy....    didn't mean for it to.
