Nothing was too big for Sam Darnold.
He missed the gap to quarterback competition with Josh McCown and Teddy Bridgewater during his contract break for three days, not the New York limelight for his preseason
I bet it will not be too big for him, the boy on Thursday night against the Redskins in FedEx Field to let the start.
START HIM UP, Todd Bowles
He'll be your quarterback earlier than later this season. Let's see if it can be sooner. Opening night in Detroit earlier.
You will begin which quarterback gives you the best chance to win.
Let's get extra evidence that it's Sam Darnold
Throw him to the Redskins Wolves under the lights and we'll see if he's crouching or squinting.
Do not think it's in his DNA.
The possibilities were all to see in his preparatory debut against the Hawks … the attitude, the talent for arm, the pocket presence, the stretching games with his legs, all that.
He loves the challenge, loves the game of football He wants the job.
Of course there will be growing pain. Nobody sends him to Canton.
But does not the sky seem to be the limit for his ceiling?
McCown does not need much preseason. Everyone knows who he is and what he can do.
There seems to be no room at the Christopher Johnson Inn in Bridgewater. But Bridgewater has to play to show that his knee can stand the strain and GM Mike Maccagnan can allow a Quarter Desperate team to make him an offer he can not refuse.
Coach Bowles, if there's anyone on this green and planet knows who wants his own franchise quarterback, it's you.
You're 20-28 and there are those who want to throw you in the hot seat, but if you develop Darnold, you are blocking a buttfumble of a squadron, chances are you will return in 2019 with a team ready is to win.
The idea is to break the stranglehold of the Patriots on the division and win a championship.
You designed Sam Darnold to hunt this Super Bowl] The more experience you gain in 2018, the better your team will be in 2019.
Coach Bowles, in your defense, you were met by the unfortunate Christian Hackenberg, with whom you had to settle for journeyman quarterbacks who had some fleeting successes but did not make Bill Belichick and T. om Brady sweat
For Darnold this is the next step. Let's see what the child has. Let's see if he can pull your team behind him and let them believe.
It's Go Time.
START HIM UP.
