Adam Gase talked last week about Sam Darnold being more assertive in the huddle and more comfortable in the offense. Darnold has been telling Gase what he wants to run and how he wants to run it based on what he sees from the defense. Gase said this was a huge step for Darnold and showed his growth.
The story said Gase will be evaluated on whether Darnold grows and improves this year. Darnold rebounded against the Giants. He led three touchdown drives – Darnold had a rushing touchdown and threw for one – and wasn’t intercepted for just the second time in six games this season.
