The first three games of the 2021 NFL season were extremely kind to quarterback Sam Darnold and the Carolina Panthers.
Carolina started the season 3-0 and Darnold looked like a darkhorse MVP candidate. Over the past few games, though, nothing has gone right for the Panthers and the former No. 3 overall pick.
In today’s game against the New England Patriots, Darnold completed 16-of-33 passes for 172 yards and three interceptions. During his horrendous performance on Sunday, every NFL fan and media member was making the same joke.
They used Darnold’s “seeing ghosts” comment against him.
“Sam Darnold is seeing ghosts. Jamie Collins intercepts Darnold, who’s been picked on back-to-back drives,” NFL reporter Mark Daniels said.

“Sam Darnold could have a case against the New England Patriots for intentional infliction of emotional distress. Between ‘seeing ghosts’ a few years ago and now today, damages would be easy to show,” sports lawyer Michael McCann said.

Former New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman had a much simpler message for the Panthers quarterback.
He published a gif of a ghost dancing.

It was a disastrous performance for Darnold and the Panthers today against the Patriots. Christian McCaffrey made his triumphant return to the Panthers, but not even he could make enough of an impact.
Darnold might not be in Carolina when the 2022 NFL season kicks off.
