Who the Jaguars gonna call? Perhaps the Ghostbusters for Sam Darnold.
Prior to Sunday’s Jets game in Jacksonville, a plane was spotted carrying the banner, “[Jaguars quarterback] Gardner Minshew ain’t afraid of no ghost,” according to The Post’s Brian Costello, an apparent reference to the now-viral statement from the second-year Jets quarterback.
In Monday’s blowout loss to the Patriots, Darnold was captured on camera stating, “I’m seeing ghosts.” The quote has since taken on a life of its own, with Jets brass livid that NFL Films let the comment reach ESPN’s air.
“That was one of those things that was really disappointing to hear about after the game. I don’t know if I’ve ever seen that where somebody that was mic’d up was basically … a comment like that was allowed to be aired. It bothers me. It bothers the organization. We’re looking hard into our cooperation going forward,” coach Adam Gase said.
