We will get to 7-9 BECAUSE of Teddy. That's not a discount, that's an improvement. Without him we probably don't win that many games. But you can flip that to 9-7 if it makes you feel better. But what's the point? I'm not a "hey let's just tank the entire season" kind of a guy. Losing sucks. But I also don't understand the logic in signing someone like Teddy for $20M a year. There is nothing wrong with Teddy, other than he's not the kind of kid that's going to put a team on his back and go out and win a bunch of games on his own. But if you put a team around him, he's more than capable of stacking wins. The 2017 Jaguars would probably have been Super Bowl champs if they had a healthy Teddy Bridgewater. I'm just not seeing the kind of roster that Teddy can win double digit games with and stack up playoff wins. We need a little time. Bring in a vet, that's fine. But why tie up so many resources for someone like Teddy?
We'll see how it turns out. If this roster improves quickly, it will be a great move to get Teddy on board. Otherwise it was just a wasted opportunity, when the better model has been shown to be going out and getting a QB on his rookie contract and stack the deck around him before you have to pay him.
