The Jets thought that they struck gold when they drafted Darnold in 2018. But the dream turned into a nightmare for the former USC star. He was the youngest starting quarterback of the modern era and this carried a lot of weight. But in the end, they threw him away like an empty takeout container.
Nobody will forget him ‘seeing ghosts’ against the Patriots. Darnold threw many interceptions, but Adam Gase deserves criticism for destroying his confidence. Oddly, Darnold’s hype train exploded again when he joined the Niners in 2023 (via New York Post).
