Who ya gonna name?
Halloween was final Sunday, however Sam Darnold continues to be telling ghost tales, apparently: Simply round two years after after his now-infamous “seeing ghosts” line in a recreation vs. the Patriots, the useless rose once more.
NFL DRAFT 2022: Who leads our QB rankings?
The Patriots trounced the Panthers 24-6 on Sunday and it was one other afternoon of paranormal — nicely, more and more regular — exercise for the Carolina quarterback, with a ghastly 16-of-33, 173-yard, three-interception line within the loss.
Carolina head coach Matt Rhule wasn’t pleased with the QB’s efficiency.
Matt Rhule: “I don’t need to lay all of it on one man, however we are able to’t maintain throwing the ball up within the air.”
Is Sam Darnold nonetheless the man? “We will’t maintain doing that.”

“I do not need to lay all of it on one man, however we won’t maintain throwing the ball up within the air,” Rhule stated following the sport. When requested if he believes Darnold continues to be the group’s QB1, he stated: “We will not maintain doing that.”
And Rhule wasn’t the one one upset together with his starter: Following Darnold’s third INT, broad receiver Robby Anderson was seemingly very peeved with the fourth-year QB, yelling at him on the sideline.
In Darnold’s final 4 video games vs. the Patriots, he has thrown 9 interceptions and his groups are 0-4. He has a single landing to these picks.
His three interceptions Sunday had been of the worst selection, too.
The primary was a foul red-zone INT on a less-than-pretty throw that went the opposite manner for six:
The second was a pleasant play by linebacker Jamie Collins, who learn Darnold and snagged the ball off the rip:
The third was the backbreaker: ultimately zone, once more to J.C. Jackson, on a power.
Sam Darnold together with his third INT right now, JC Jackson will get one other!
JC Jackson has 22 profession INTs in 3 and a half seasons.

In all, Darnold has thrown seven touchdowns to 11 interceptions this season — not precisely the return the Panthers wished to get after they picked up his fifth-year possibility and shipped a second-, fourth- and sixth-round choose to the Jets for him.
Whereas the Panthers might persist with Darnold solely due to his 2022 contract quantity, it seems as if the sands to determine his standing as an NFL quarterback are nearly thinned out.
