    He knew he was miked up. He should assume everything he says besides plays and cuss words are going to be aired.

    Yeah, it's what a broadcast analyst or commentator would say.

    Agree. I think someone will lose their job over this. There is a common understanding that a lot of what is said on the sideline is supposed to be off limits.

    What NFL films did here is risk future participation by players in the mic-up segments. It was fun though.

    Language and words matter. Pedro Martinez could have said, “The Yankees have been able to hit against me, I need to do a better job working their hitters.” Instead he said, “The Yankees are my daddy.” Means the same thing, right? But one is boring corporate speak, another is language I still remember 15 years later.

    Bill Parcells could have said, “Terry is making progress, but he needs to learn to tough things out if he wants to make it in this league.” But he didn’t; he said, “She’s making progress.” Same thing, right?

    Being told you’re seeing ghosts is considered one of the biggest insults for a QBs. For a QB to just say that about himself? It’s meme-worthy. NFL Films and ESPN should have known better than to air that, but if I were a Jets player on the sideline and heard him say that, I wouldn’t have had any confidence in my QB thereafter.

    Maybe it was Jimmy Hoffa?

    He was buried under the old parking lot where the new stadium now stands.

    I hope this lights a fire under Darnold and he goes on to destroy the bills and win a few games to drop out of the top 10 pick.

    Yeah, I don't know. It was television gold. It gave insight into the feelings of a pivotal player in the middle of an historic performance. Hard to hold that one back. I'm sure it was a split-second decision from a television producer. They are probably trained to edit out the naughty bits, but not trained to consider the long-term impact of morale to young players.
    Some players would take this episode and say to themselves: I'm never going to be fooled like that again and dedicate themselves to film study and preparation. Some might cave. This could be a real development moment for Darnold.

    This. It's a bad look because he described the situation as "seeing ghosts" rather than something more analytical and productive toward changing said situation. What he did is more akin to moaning loudly.

    He can play much better than last night.

    What you saw was Darnold trying to play chess with BB and getting mated every match.

    'Seeing Ghosts' is Darnold's Butt-Fumble. Never live it down.

    Lots of good comments above. Glad I started the thread. Lots of good comments above. Thanks.

    I have three thoughts:

    1) Yeah, the NFL shouldn't have allowed those words of a bewildered, but still very young, guy go out so millions could hear them.

    2) That said, a team leader doesn't talk like that on the sidelines of any sport.

    3) Maybe more people will understand why we Patriots fans view ESPN as devoid of character, judgment and decency.

    I want both agree and disagree on this. Agree someone should lose their job, but disagree it should be an NFL films employee. Should be a Jets employee. Best candidate would be Gase.

    He’s going to forget that he’s miked up in the heat of action. And this is the result. Priceless. But exact what “miked up” is all about.

    Disagree. This is what “miked up” is about, catching the raw unfiltered expressions in the heat of the moment. Yeah it sucks for the player but it makes for great entertainment value, and that’s what the NFL is delivering, not warm fuzzy cuddles to soothe the egos of fragile snowflakes who melt under pressure. And it’s part of what he gets paid the big bucks and gets star status for, putting himself in harm’s way psychically as well as physically.
