Darnold arrived in New York as the Jets’ latest great hope. Adam Gase believed he could get the best out of the young man. The head coach arrived after Peyton Manning recommended him to the franchise. However, Gase and Darnold completely failed at that task.
Arguably, Darnold’s worst moment came when he played against the Patriots and claimed that he was ‘seeing ghosts.’ These words haunted his career because the Internet instantly mocked him. Eventually, the Jets fired Gase and traded Darnold to the Panthers (via NFL.com).
