With Darnold out of the lineup for the foreseeable future, the Jets will turn to QB Trevor Siemian as their starting passer. That's not good news for any of the Jets playmakers specifically running back Le'Veon Bell and wide receivers Jamison Crowder and Robby Anderson. Siemian is quite frankly just not as talented as Darnold and Head Coach Adam Gase will have to down-play his play-calling to better fit Siemian's style of play.
