The NFL phenomenon we call “tanking” is in full swing this year. As usual, certain “rebuilding” teams have lined themselves up for 2018’s first pick. Three teams have sussed USC’s Sam Darnold as fertile pastures to build their future on. Can’t get Darnold if you don’t race to the bottom.
BANG: Sam Darnold leads his team on a TD drive less than two minutes into the season. …. The Jets are salivating. #FightOn

Darnold is USC’s Sophmore Quarterback. Last season, he usurped Max Browne as USC’s starter and lit up the stat sheet. In thirteen games, he threw for 3000 yards, 31 TDs and only 6 INTs. Those are some Pro numbers. If he were a Pro, he’d sit pretty in the top-half of Pro QBs. With week 1 in the books for Darnold, pundits have fresh doubts on him being Heisman worthy.
Three suspects on paper are diving for a shot at Darnold. It may seem like a chronic issue, but don’t be fooled, it’s for Darnold. Kendrick Lamar Playing Near You! Buy Tickets at Tickets.Cheap, Tickets Available! Order Yours Now!
The New York Jets
New York’s circus team, who, in my opinion, recaptured the “circus” title gained under Rex Ryan, have overtly set themselves up for Darnold given their Quarterback and Offensive woes. Futile efforts were made in courting Tony Romo, settling for chronic bench warmer Josh McCown. With Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker gone, it seems they’ve set their wagons to Quincy Enunwa who had a season-ending neck injury. To top it off, they traded Defensive powerhouse Sheldon Richardson for Seattle’s Jermaine Kearse. Kearse is not an answer, but worked in Seattle’s Offense.

The Buffalo Bills
I root for the Bills as New York’s only team, being that the Jets/Giants play in New Jersey. But’ after this offseason their on the Darnold train as well, despite the wonderful play of Tyrod Taylor his former and current Head Coach don’t believe in the veteran signal caller. As other teams have declared their starters the Bills have not. Bills current Head Coach Sean McDermott, claims he’s still in competition with Nathan Peterman and T.J. Yates. who lack talent and experience that Tyrod has in spades. In a gutting move, they deal WR Sammy Watkins to the Eagles and another deal for WR Jordan Matthews, who, once again isn’t a star.

The Cleveland Browns
Darnold might be the next name on the infamous Tim Couch jersey. Did Osweiler make the jersey? Oh Wait. Osweiler, released by the Browns, re-joins the Denver Broncos with a sensible deal. Cleveland has had top 10 picks in recent years, but missed out on QB phenom Carson Wentz. DeShone Kizer has won the QB spot, but with an offense lacking weapons, will he ride the pine behind rookie Darnold? It’s unlikely with how Kizer has shown out in preseason. As they say, it’s only preseason. Also with what the Browns have to offer(?), they’ve accumulated picks.
