The Cardinals are proof of why the Jets might be left out on Sam Darnold

When the Mets play Sunday at MetLife Stadium, they can see an example of their future in their rival, the 2–2 Cardinals.

For the past three years, the Jets have assumed they have their own franchise quarterback. In three seasons, however, results have not been found, as he expected Sam Darnold to be drafted with the third-overall pick in 2018.

Darnold, who was 11-18 as a starter, missed three games in his rookie season, 4-9 and missed another three games in 2019, 7-6 after returning from his boxing with mononucleosis.

Now Darnold comes out of the lineup again, ready to miss Sunday’s game with a right shoulder injury that listed him as “week to week,” an open-ended mystery. drop offs.

Seven times later in the same 2018 draft, in which the Jets selected Darnold, the Cardinals selected another promising prospect from Josh Rosen of UCLA, Southern California, to be their franchise quarterback.

Rosen went 3-10 as a starter and produced an equal number of runs for Darnold in their respective rookie seasons. Rosen completed 55.2 percent of his passes, throwing 11 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. Darnold completed 57.7 percent, throwing 17 TDs and 15 INTs.

The following year, facing the No. 1-overall pick in 2019 and with a new head coach at Cliff Kingsbury, the Cardinals pounced on quarterback Kylar Murray and traded Rosen after just one season.

Rosen, currently on the Buccaneers practice squad, is now with his third NFL team in three seasons.

What if the Jets, currently 0-4, continue to lose and end up with the No. 1-overall pick?

Could they possibly have a chance to draft Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence, whom college football experts considered a liberal talent?

The answer to that question is: they cannot.

Jets general manager Joe Douglas, remember, did not draft Darnold. Similarly in Arizona, although Cardinals general manager Steve Keim drafted Rosen, Kingsbury was not the coach when Rosen was selected, and gave Murray a chance with the top-overall pick in 2019.

Murray responded by winning NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year honors, rushing 64.4 percent for 3,722 yards for his TT with 20 TTDs for 12 ints and 544 yards and four TDs.

The Cardinals finished 5–10–1 last season with Morena, but were a popular pick to become a playoff team this season based on Morena, in a trade with the Texans in the offers to receiver DeAndre Hopkins Was gifted.

Where is the reverse of jets?

“It’s a quarterback-driven league, and if you’re a general manager who can’t find the right quarterback, you won’t have a very long job,” Keim said in an interview with the Cardinals’ team website. There was mention of drafting Murray during the offers. “Luckily for us, we had the first pick at the right time, and we think we took the right player.”

The consensus is that Clemson Lawrence is “the right player, ‘” a no-brainer, game-changer at No. 1.

It was finally decided that you are not close [expletive] LeBron James, ” Eric Burkhardt, both Murray and agent for Kingsbury, said the Cardinals drafted Murray in the same story by the team’s website.

As good a supporter as Darnold, he is also a good cop as he is dealt by team management despite poor hands, with an inability to surround him with enough complementary talent, how much time can he have now?

Despite the fact that Darnold is now going to miss at least one game due to injury or illness for the third consecutive season, he refuses to see himself as a victim of injury and that too, anyone Does not want to be a part, which suffers from a big picture.

He said, “This is just something you will deal with,” he said. “I always have a positive mindset about everything. Just looking at the season, did the first four games go the way we want them to? No, but there is a long season ahead of us. ”

However, now how long does it take before Darnold really makes a big decision about himself and the future of the team?

If the Jets end up with the No. 1 overall pick in 2021 and are to move on the same path as the Cardinals did a year ago, it is possible that Darnold only to show balance this season He was ready for the franchise quarterback.

Life in the NFL sometimes runs brisk. Just ask Josh Rosen.
