Sam Darnold deserves fair shot in Carolina, Zach Wilson wins in Jets trade - Colin | NFL | THE HERD

News broke yesterday that the New York Jets made a trade deal with the Carolina Panthers, giving up their quarterback Sam Darnold for a 2021 6th round pick, and 2022 2nd and 4th round picks. Colin Cowherd explains why this is a win for Darnold, and the reason it's happening is due to the jets' dysfunction. Plus, Colin points out with the real winner in this trade deal is former BYU quarterback Zach Wilson.

      @Gator dude what are you talking about? I haven’t once defended Darnold. You’re literally all over the place😂 Darnold is trash, we’ve seen that over 38 games worth. Rosen is not getting chances tho, as he was released by the Dolphins less than two years after being a top 10 pick, starting only 16 games. Released, not traded. Then, only was able to find a spot on a practice squad last season, before the 49ers said ah we’ll put him in as our third QB. Then Jimmy G got hurt so he was a backup. Then, the 49ers traded up to take a QB this off-season, which means he’ll be QB3 and likely wind up being cut again this pre-season. He has not been given a fair shake compared to other young QB’s. That’s just a fact. You can still stand by your opinion of him, but the playing ground has not been even.

      Yes, he should blossom in Carolina and Joe Douglas knows it he even said it but it’s also Joe Douglas likes Sam a lot and I don’t think he wanted to put him through another frustrating year knowing he’s a dead man walking in NFL and ruin him completely.

      @Matt Jake Rosen is on the 49ers at this time. He has not been outcasted, as he continues to get opportunities as a backup. either way in summary, Im not a Darnold fan, I was a rosen fan out of college.. But Ive seen enough to realize both cant play. either 16 game sample or few years. I will standby my previous comment, a good player can still play on a bad team. To me, he was just a bad player and in Carolina he will be benched after a rough start. Please comeback to this post and let me know that he also did not have a perfect situation to thrive....The humidity was a problem or make up another excuse.

      @Gator Trubisky can’t read a defense and process his reads, you’re all over the place bringing up other people. Trubisky has 50 career starts to Rosen’s 16. Rosen has shown he can do those things. You’re basing it off seeing him throw up bad numbers in a 16 game sample size. This is the NFL and these are college kids going to the NFL. 16 games doesn’t cut it my dude. Never has. Peyton Manning threw hella picks his rookie year. I’m not saying Rosen is Peyton Manning either. I’m saying he has what it takes to start in the NFL. It’s laughable that the league has outcasted him but multiple teams want Darnold is all my point was.

    Even if the jets do what you're saying here (hint they wont) the likely hood is at least 50% of the picks bust and the is almost a lock that the qb they take at 2 is a bust, the systemic theme for jets failure is ownership. Even when the Jets have had a top 5 defense and a decent offence they have tanked

    Colin strikes out 70% of the time but you come to see him take big swings regardless. Are you not entertained? He swung hard for Darnold but the jury's out. This was Sam's floor, he either goes up or out of football now. For him to have enough poise to beat a competent Rams team late into a lost season with the worst offense in history says a lot about him. The Jets are trading him because they have a do-over and don't want to pay Sam yet, not because Sam can't do better. It's a win for both squads. Tepper and Rhule are aggressive and it's worth the risk. And, hate it or love it, you love to see Colin go big. If you're waiting for "I think there's a fair shot that Duke wins the national title once every five years" keep waiting. You love to see it
