The Sam Darnold mono situation may be the opportunity the New York Jets needed, while we preview the New York Jets-Cleveland Browns Week 2 matchup, on Sabo Radio 30.

The Sam Darnold adversity opportunity. Wait … what? Opportunity.

Yes. New York Jets opportunity.

Oftentimes, adversity what flips the NFL switch. If not for adversity, Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots would have packed up and gone home the moment Mo Lewis sidelined Drew Bledsoe indefinitely.

If not for adversity, “You play to win the game” would have never happened. If not for adversity, Bill Parcells’s 1998 squad never unfolds once it was known Rick Mirer wasn’t the correct guy to lead the charge.

The Darnold-mono situation will allow Joe Douglas and Adam Gase to accelerate the Natural Selection process. It’ll become much easier to find out which individuals are the correct ones in the hopes of building a winning program.

When looking at the Week 2 matchups against the Cleveland Browns, a doomsday scenario should not be painted. The downgrade from Darnold to Trevor Siemian isn’t that great. Remember, this is one of the better backup situations in the NFL. Many teams would kill to have Siemian as a No. 2.

C.J. Mosley missing the contest is a much bigger deal. Now, Neville Hewitt slides over as the Mike with Blake Cashman aside him.

The Browns, who were crowed in the offseason, come into MetLife Stadium after a blowout loss at the hands of the Tennessee Titans. Their offensive line play was awful and the Freddie Kitchens question marks only multiplied.

Sabo Radio 30 covers it all heading into NFL Week 2.
