I am also a big Teddy fan but why would all of the QB needy teams that passed on him in free agency trade for him now? Not like he cost much for any of those teams to take a swing on. Also, where is he going to go that is a better immediate opportunity for playing time other than NYJ where he's competing with a journeyman vet and a rookie?

I agree. I think the Jets hold him and nothing happens unless there's something like a Tannehill re-injury or something along those lines.

In superflex,2qb he makes for a fine hold if you got the room for him and need to take a flier at QB. But I wouldn’t say it’s time to be excited for him, I seriously doubt he sees many, if any, snaps this year as a starting QB.

I think Teddy will be one of the league's best backup QBs. Perhaps his career will follow a Josh McCown or Case Keenum sort of arc.

That's all he is, though. If the Jets release or trade him, he isn't going to be another team's starter in '18. It's too late for that this year.

I hope not. Sad when a player just can't stay healthy enough to show his worth.

I got that - and even in a SF league I do not think he holds much value; still not really any reason to be excited.

It's although worth noting the fluff piece comes from a Jets beat writer and the Jets basically abandoned him when drafting Darnold. Reeks of trying to kick up a trade market for a cut candidate.
This is what I think too. Even in the article they say "Would be a great #2 guy to compete for the #1 job"

If that was really the case, why wouldn't Jets have him be their young hopefuly with McCown the "good enough if needed" QB to start the season and they use their early draft pick on something else or sell it? Jets are hoping to be able to sell Teddy now that they replaced him with Darnold

It would be amazing if Teddy beat out McCown for the starting job, and then held off Darnold all year. That'd be great lol

*Puts on tinfoil hat*

Teddy B starts the season over Josh McCown and looks very good. People wondering if Darnold will get any playing time with him in there

Giants have a decent team with Barkley and OBJ, but Eli is just a dumpster fire and clearly they should have drafted rookie QB in the last draft

Jets happily trade Teddy to the Giants for a 2nd or 3rd so that they can start their beloved Darnold, and Giants now how a capable and young QB. New York win-win

FYI: http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap300000 ... e-via-otas

Personally I think it would make sense for WAS to trade a mid-round pick for Bridgewater to develop behind Alex Smith.

I think the Jags are a much more likely destination for a trade. Bortles is unlikely to be any good and if the Jags defense continues to dominate and Fournette stays healthy, Bridgewater makes a whole lot of sense in that offense.

Posted this elsewhere, but might as well put it in an actual Bridgewater thread...


Bridgewater just passes the eye test for me. He is very good at managing a high degree of pressure. He was, I believe, the most pressured QB in the NFL. I remember seeing a stat (probably from PFF) that compared the rate of pressures Newton faced in that Super Bowl game with the Broncos constantly destroying him, and the average pressure Bridgewater faced. In Bridgewater’s average game that season, he was more consistently pressured than Cam was in that laughable display of “protection” against the Broncos. So that gives some idea of his OL play for those who can’t remember (because everyone remembers that super bowl I presume).
Anyways, he wasn’t just dealing with that high amount of pressure consistently; he was dealing with it with some efficiency. And this was in an antiquated, Norv Turner system. Norv is installing some different looks now, but he wasn’t back then. This was VERY similar to the Jeff Fisher offense, designed around running incredibly predictably on 1st and 2nd and passing on usually 3rd and long (because 3rd and short was often another run). It ran mostly from the I-form, because Peterson was great in that and pretty bad from shotgun. This was much like the Jared Goff rookie season, but Bridgewater was more pressured...and still far more effective than Goff. The key difference? Goff was moved into McVay’s system the following offseason. Bridgewater was moved to the hospital. Now his story continues. He showed FAR more than most QBs would have shown in that system.

For those that fall back on the argument that he was bad because he wasn’t putting up huge numbers...well he wasn’t really allowed to. He had the fewest pass attempts of all starters that season, as it was an offense designed around Peterson and defense. Bridgewater was quite often asked to pass in obvious passing situations, without the benefit of frequent passes in less obvious situations to bolster his stats. He was fighting a real uphill battle, playing in a type of system that makes qbs look like garbage, and he was actually quite smart and efficient with the ball.

He didn’t connect well on the deep ball...but was passing deep to who? Jarius Wright? Charles Johnson was arguably his best WR, and he was needing to connect with these guys under heavy pressure on usually third and obvious situations.

I’m not saying Bridgewater is some hidden Russell Wilson or something. I’m saying he’s under-appreciated for what he DID accomplish given the situation, and is now just looked at by most as an underperformer who got injured. He’s not once played behind an even adequate line. Only behind league worst type of play. He’s primarily gotten to play in the I-form...not his strong suit and not one suited for QB stats. I wouldn’t be so quick to write him off based on past performance, because I actually believe his past performance is a strike FOR him, not against him.

There’s my brief summary...

Teddy Bridgewater, like Sam Bradford is one of those QBs I want to cheer for - but for some reason they always get screwed over (either by injury or bad situation) and as a result those owners that do not like to delve deep into reasons put them as 'busts' - which lowers their consensus market value.
