Relieved that we’ve finally got Darnold signed, the doom and gloom merchants on social media were doing my head in...

First home shutout in preseason in team history, apparently. Woo-hoo!

Not sure it could have gone much better really. Crowell's concussion aside. The D could be really exciting to watch.

Ben Ijalana is out for the season, Kelvin Beachum isn’t currently practicing and Brian Winters is likely to miss the whole preseason. Worried that Darnold will be David Carred for life if he plays this year...

I'm not sure he will start if that is the case. Mac was on the Texans staff that drafted Carr and has mentioned about his desire to avoid repeating that situation in the past.

For me, I came down on the side of having 3 criteria to satisfy for Darnold to be given the start. First was playbook and scheme. Every indication is that Darnold has this down. Second was ability to recognise defensive scheme and make adjustments. Darnold has been demonstrating an ability to do this as well. The last wasn't really all about him, but it was about the speed of the game and our ability to protect him. Our line was always a likely weakness but with replacements in I'm seriously concerned that the risk is not worth taking.
