The New York Jets have plenty of weapons surrounding young Sam Darnold entering the 2020 NFL season, his third campaign.

At this point, the bitching is legendary. New York Jets fans of all shapes and sizes take to social media for one express purpose: to fire off a hot take ready to sizzle the organization’s world.

The last two offseasons featured calls for offensive linemen (although, not enough heat in many regards as a Spencer Long or Kelechi Osemele served to appease the crowd). Now that Joe Douglas has brought in plenty of bodies in that area, the weapons have taken center stage. (It’s only natural; the guys who touch the ball and hit SportsCenter are always the top focal point for the majority of fans.)

Why did Douglas not surround young Sam Darnold with enough firepower? We applaud the effort of the question, but the execution is off tenfold. He did.

This Jets team as currently constructed employs plenty of weapons for young Darnold. It’s just tough to see for a variety of reasons and will only prove sufficient as long as it’s given a chance—which is the key for skilled position players across the country at every level.

The talent in 2020 far exceeds 2019

Think about the talent right now as opposed to 2019. It’s a no-contest, even without Quincy Enunwa who is now out for another season due to his season-ending PUP list activation on Tuesday.

Now compare that to last year’s group.

Sorry folks; unless you’re living in a world that puts “superstar” in your mind when thinking about Demaryius Thomas and Ty Montgomery‘s former dominance, the new group is head and shoulders above the fray.

Mount Becton versus Kelvin Beachum, the answer run the ball. Balance maybe the key. Certainly the WR Corp. is substandard, one can hope that Perriman & Mims develop but are unproven. The Jets need to rely on TE’s and RB’s ( please split Bell out more often ) .Don’t believe n Doctson, but I believe that Vyncent Smith, can give you 50 catches for 700 yards. Sam will have to spread the ball around, and run the ball.
