Sam Darnold may not ever live this down after ESPN aired him stating he was ‘seeing ghosts’ while playing against the New England Patriots on Monday Night Football last week.
It did not take long for the Jags fan base to troll him after someone paid to have a banner flown over the stadium to troll the Jets QB about his words before the game.
On top of that, sources told ESPN’s Adam Schefter that the Jags defense planned to mess with him as well by screaming “things like “boo” at Darnold and remind him of the “seeing ghosts” remarks that were voiced while he was miked during Monday Night Football.”
That is just phenomenal.
Darnold has insisted the comments do not bother him after he threw for a career-high five turnovers during a 33-0 loss to the New England Patriots.
“I was able to get over it on my own,” said Darnold, who also had his toenail removed this week, adding further injury to insult. “When I started watching Jacksonville film, I was over it. That’s how I have to look at things, and that’s what I did.”
Head coach Adam Gase did not feel the same way.
“It bothers me, it bothers the organization,” said Gase, who also acknowledged that it’s “part of the deal” for coaches and players to be miked for prime-time games.
