I usually disagree with Colin Cowherd. Now I have to read a wrong opinion from fellow Fox radio host Clay Travis:
“I’m nervous about Sam Darnold. I watched him play at USC and I didn’t feel like at every time at snap he knew exactly what he was going to do. At snap, Josh Rosen knows exactly what he’s going to do and had total command of that offense.”
I have no problem with someone saying Rosen is better than Darnold. He played great against USC last season. But to say Darnold did not know what he was doing and Rosen had total command of the offense?
That makes it sound like one is just incredibly better than the other. They are both good quarterbacks. Have you read similar takes from any NFL scouts, coaches or executives? No.
Is Travis complaining about Darnold’s ability to improvise? He won a Rose Bowl doing it. And many other games.
