Can Sam Darnold’s ‘Seeing Ghosts’ Comment Eventually Help Rally the Jets?

It was the best of times – it was the worst of times.

The Jets, a week removed from laying a solid upset at home over the Dallas Cowboys, came crashing down in the story line of a game Jets fans have seen all too often.

The end result – a 33-0 shellacking at the hands of the New England Patriots, a score that if you would have looked for a bet365 promotions for New Jersey players you could have played the other way, as painful as that would have been having to bet against the Jets.

Monday’s game was never even close, and the moment that Sony Michel went over on third down on the first drive of the game for the Patriots, you could have spelled out the story line of how this was going to play out.

Now it will be up to Jets coach Adam Gase to try and right the ship as the team will get ready for matchup Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

After all the outlandish comments about Jets QB Sam Darnold ‘seeing ghosts’ during the 33-point loss, it’s now up to the coaching staff to make sure they don’t lose confidence.

“I have a lot of confidence in Sam bouncing back from this,” Gase said Tuesday. “It’s tough when you go through this originally. Then you go back and watch the tape, figure out your mistakes, move on to the next game, put a good game on tape. That’s really what we have to do.”

Darnold looked poised in his first outing back off his surgery before the team’s week two game against the Browns, and led them to their first win with an impressive outing against Dallas.

Now all those good feelings from the win over the Cowboys is gone, and the “seeing ghosts” comments is something that the quarterback is going to have to put away as they get ready for the Jaguars.

“The fact that it did just gives us pause to really cooperate anymore,” Gase said via the NY Post. “I don’t know how we can allow our franchise quarterback to be put out there like that.”

How bad was Darnold in the loss? Five turnovers, including four interceptions, and finished with 86 passing yards and a 3.2 quarterback rating.

The team stunk up MetLife Stadium, but now the question will be – is there resolve enough in this team to bounce back and start to maybe stack up some wins starting against the Jagaurs?

If not, it’ll be tough to escape the ‘seeing ghosts’ comment for a long time to come.
