Sam Darnold Note

Sam Darnold's NFL failure can be attributed to Adam Gase. Not all of it, but enough of a chunk that I am buying into the Darnold reclamation project the Panthers have taken on in 2021. He goes from being bereft of weapons to having arguably the best RB in football in Christian McCaffrey and two talented receivers in DJ Moore and Robby Anderson (whom Darnold is familiar with from their Jet days). He will also benefit from OC Joe Brady, whom I thought was one of the top play-callers in the NFL last year, and stunned he didn't receive more attention as an HC candidate around the league. Three years ago, Darnold was an excellent QB prospect. At 23 years old, it's far too soon to throw him away.
