    Sam the Man - Baptism by Fire

    posted by: Site Admin | 0 comments | Editorial

    After a grand total of four games in his professional career, Sam Darnold is getting not so rave reviews from the armchair quarterbacks and even a few of those who should know better. The shop talk is that the Jets should have stayed put at No. 6 instead of trading up to get Darnold at No. 3 which meant that New York could have saved their sixth, 37th, and 49th picks in the 2018 draft, plus the Jets’ 2019 second-rounder from going to Indianapolis. The assets that general manager Mike Maccagnan traded to move up three spots is certainly open for debate, particularly because New York is not a team on the precipice of greatness but rather one that’s on the cusp of mediocrity.

    According to various sources, the New York Jets are expected to hire Mike Maccagnan as their new general manager. Maccagnan, who's now a scouting director with the Houston Texans, is viewed as a very good talent evaluator, something previous GM John Idzik wasn't considered when the Gang Green hired him two years ago. Maccagnan, however, has no experience with salary cap management and contract negotiations.
