New York Jets – Develop Sam Darnold By Playing Sam Darnold

Joe Caporoso on why the New York Jets should not be hesitant about playing Sam Darnold in 2018

It is common in sports to regurgitate a talking point that has frequently been used over a prolonged period of time. Sometimes certain truths hold but sometimes they become antiquated as a sport evolves. It is comfortable to rely on assumed “conventional thinking.” As this pertains to the New York Jets 2018 quarterback situation, it so easy to say the following it practically rolls off your tongue:

Sam Darnold is only 20 years old and has the perfect bridge and mentor quarterback to learn behind in Josh McCown. The Jets should not rush Darnold and ruin him, like they have previously ruined Geno Smith and Mark Sanchez by playing them prematurely. This city and media market will eat him up if he has any early struggles. Let Darnold sit on the bench for a year and learn behind McCown before potentially taking over in 2019…

It sounds good but it is incorrect. The New York Jets should have the mindset that their rookie quarterback, Sam Darnold, will be their starting quarterback in 2018 and should not shy away from believing this is the best possible thing for their franchise in the coming years.
