    You always find a way to bring up a strawman so it’s pointless because it’s been laid out for you in these pages and pages of posts and in multiple threads too.

    After the success Teddy had replacing an injured Drew Brees, teams were willing to throw $20M/year at him. There was no way Teddy or the Saints knew if and when Brees was retiring. You don’t pay Teddy $20M or ridiculously backload his contract just to be a backup or have him as the official heir at QB. The Saints simply didn’t have cap space and when you still have your future HoF QB leading the team, you make an effort to build around him in the hopes of competing for a title. You act like NO letting Teddy walk in free agency is an indictment on Teddy. It’s a numbers game and they didn’t have the starting position available for him at the start of 2020 and didn’t know when they would because at that point Brees hadn’t showed signs of slowing down and he hadn’t sustained those brutal injuries yet.

    Carolina was a bad year, no matter how you want to approach it. Rookie HC and OC. Terrible OL. McCaffrey played in 3 games. Teddy was able to support two 1,000 yard receivers in Anderson and Moore, and almost a third with Samuel. He was looking good before an injury later in the year hampered his play. He turned the ball over fairly often and the team had redzone issues. He didn’t have the athleticism or arm talent to overcome the shortcomings on their offense. So despite career-highs in almost every passing category, Carolina with a new GM in 2021 moved on from him. Fitterer wanted to start his tenure with a different QB, perhaps one that fit Joe Brady’s system more. Like beast, I view the trade for Darnold as a lateral move at best. Look what fans are saying now.

      Oh, if you want to do Reddit - what fans said when Teddy was traded:

      “He's a T1 backup. His whole shtick is not making bad decisions and throwing the ball to the other team. After Denver realizes he's not a starter and dumps him he will have a very cushy back end of his career racking in millions as a solid backup. He deserved a shot to start but proved he won't win you games. He won't lose them either. Honestly the Bears should grabbed him.”

      “Glass half empty, we only received a 6th rounder for Teddy. Glass half full, lol we actually received a 6th rounder for Teddy.”

      “Saw a bunch of Broncos fans excited about his completion percentage in training camp with the check downs and was thinking to myself you won’t be when it’s 4th & 9 with the game on the line, 1:20 on the clock, only need 20 yards for field goal range….and you get a 2 yard check down. Hooray!!!”

        I saw that too when we traded for Teddy. Didn't make me feel any better at the time since I wanted Fields pretty badly. I think what a lot of people are realizing is that Joe Brady isn't the greatest offensive mind and a lot of the way they go about preparing and practicing their gameplan is flawed. OL for Carolina is still a turnstile this year as it was last year. Again, with Darnold it was a lateral move. Trade away the safe, conservative Teddy for the aggressive, reckless Darnold-- but hope that him being only 24 and coming out of a terrible Adam Gase era will help kickstart his redemption story. I just hope both us and the Panthers figure it out offensively and I hope there is a world where we are happy with the QBs we have, no matter the reputation they had coming into our respective teams.

        If Teddy fizzles out this year then I am cool with moving on. To me, he isn't a career backup or bottom-tier journeyman QB until he actually shows that he is a liability as a starter and doesn't have starter level traits. Those are labels reserved for the Chase Daniels, Blaine Gabberts, Mike Glennons, Brian Hoyers, and Jacoby Brissetts of the NFL. Those are the career backups. Those are the journeymens. If he is an average starting NFL quarterback, then at least he is average for a starting QB. Puts him at the top 16-20 in the world, not bad. I get that mediocrity is unacceptable, but sometimes when you have a roster that is constructed with so much money tied to the defense with high-level vets and the team just so happens to not quite be a dumpster fire like the Jaguars or Jets-- then the least risky option to elevate the team is a game manager QB.

        When Teddy actually outright loses us games and fails to execute on a consistent basis, then the fair evaluation once a clear pattern emerges or once the season ends will be that he isn't a viable starting QB and it would be time to get a new one. It's simple as that. It's just my opinion that he isn't the problem with this football team right now. Could he play better? Of course. Could he stand to be a little more patient with his downfield reads? Of course. Could he trust his OL to protect him just a tad longer and WRs/TEs to make a play more, instead of checking down after two reads? Of course. I think there is a lot this team can improve on, and I am excited to see how Teddy fares as he settles in and develops chemistry with the offense over the course of the season. Also, Jeudy should be back around Week 8 or 9 so that will be a huge boost to our offense and it will be nice to have a WR that can generate consistent separation as opposed to our bigger, lumber guys like Sutton, Patrick, and Fant.

          Darnold is reckless, yet Teddy had almost one INT for each TD last season.

          “Outright loses” gives room to always put the blame on everyone but Teddy. He played horrible last Sunday except a few minutes late in the game, then threw a pick to seal the loss.

          Well, good discussion and appreciate your thoughts out into the posts. We’ll hope for things to click earlier this coming game. Bridgewater is who we have.

            Teddy is who we have Starting not who we really want to see. What is the worst that can happen? Brett might actually pass for more than 15 Yards per Quarter? Brett I actually think is even better than Checkdown Teddy. Teddy is at best just a Back Up QB. Oh Well What Do Us Fans Know 😂.

              Limited experience for Rypien however I haven’t seen anything from Teddy showing he’s better. If Teddy can’t do more than show up for late game stats then it’s time to give another guy a shot.
