Everything fell apart for the NY Jets in 2019 for a variety of reasons. Although the root of all those issues can all be traced back to the team’s offensive line woes.
Sam Darnold was banged up both on and off the field. While we can’t blame the trenches for his diagnosis of mononucleosis, we can blame them for the sacks, quarterback hits, and hurries. That stunted the development of Darnold and thus stymied the team’s chances of winning ball games.
NY Jets fans have been begging the football gods forever for a franchise quarterback.
