The Sam Darnold vs. Josh Allen Comparison

Michael Meegan with a comparison between Sam Darnold and Josh Allen

Sam Darnold and Josh Allen will forever be linked as they were taken in the 2018 draft together and ended up going to division rivals the Jets and the Bills.  Both have been inconsistent in the league thus far with exciting flashes that has led to each respective fan bases to post the same fave passes on Twitter with the caption “Who besides Mahomes does this?”

Jets fans do not think Allen is in the same class as Darnold and Bills fans feel the exact opposite.  In reality they are both a lot closer then both fan bases care to admit…

New York Jets – What If Anthony Barr Did Sign?

Dylan Price with a “what if” – Anthony Barr followed through and signed with the New York Jets?

The Jets most talked about offseason in recent memory was the 2019 offseason. The offseason saw them add pro bowlers, C.J. Mosley and Le’Veon Bell. They added a dynamic playmaker in Jamison Crowder and an efficient slot corner in Brian Poole. The one spot they failed to address that offseason, was pass rusher. The Jets knew when they inked Gregg Williams to be the defensive coordinator, that he can harness the best out of the worst situations. However, they wanted to give him another toy to play with in his defense. That player was going to be Anthony Barr.

Greg Armstrong with a deep dive on how New York Jets fans should assess Sam Darnold in 2020

Maybe it’s because of the quarantine, maybe it’s because of not having any sports for the last three months or maybe it’s just being noticed more because of the first two but the heat is being turned up on Sam Darnold as he enters his third year. It’s certainly warranted; we’ve seen a good bunch of flashes from Darnold that make you buy all of his future stock of being a top 10-12 QB in the league. Then we see some mind boggling throws and stretches where thoughts creep in of wanting to move on sooner rather than later.
