The biggest takeaway from Monday's 33-0 win over the Jets, was Sam Darnold saying on the sideline he was seeing ghosts when reading the Patriots defense.

Listen to your team news NOW.

The second-year quarterback was mic'd up for ESPN, and the network aired the comment during the game.

This upset many within the Jets organization, and even around the league, as they felt ESPN shouldn't have aired the line as not everything players say when they are mic'd up makes it on the air.

Appearing on The Greg Hill Show Friday, Julian Edelman, who has been mic'd up plenty of times before, said he doesn't think twice about what he says when he us mic'd up, and he doesn't feel bad for the Jets QB.

“I am not really concerned about it, and I don’t really feel bad for him at all," he said.

Darnold has moved on.

“I was able to get over it on my own,” he told reporters Thursday. “Just getting back here and watching the game and right there, right when I started watching Jacksonville film, I was done with it. I was over it. That’s how I have to look at things and that’s what I did.” 

Added Darnold: “Getting out there in the game and not executing what we had planned always makes me sick to my stomach. It’s a tough thing out there when you know exactly the look that you’re getting and you just don’t execute. And that was on me, nobody else.”
