Teddy Bridgewater said he's "honored to be following in the position'' Cam Newton left behind at Carolina. He understand what it's like to have to prove himself again as Newton is doing now at New England because he had to do that after his horrific injury in Minnesota.

New Panthers QB Teddy Bridgewater understands the offense has a lot of talent in Christian McCaffrey, DJ Moore, Curtis Samuel and others, "But at the end of the day we have to prove it on the field,'' he said.

If Teddy can provide some fun times, deliver us Fields/Lawrence/Lance in the process, and then help their transition to learning Brady's offense it's a win.  Frankly, that's the best case scenario and a realistic one that fans can talk themselves into.  A LOT more mental gymnastics would need to take place for fans to convince themselves that Teddy is a long term solution here. 

He's here to help our young guys learn Brady's offense while we find his successor.  It's honestly the big argument too against bringing back Cam. Teddy is in a better position to teach this offense instead of win right now.  The multi-year plan we're in screams for teaching and patience, not our best chance to win.  Plans can obviously change, but unless Teddy walks in and starts 16 games, plays at a Pro Bowl level, etc., then the plan isn't changing and he's not a part of it beyond 2021.  

At this point, this is all I want. I’m ready to get either Lawrence and Fields in here, as I am not going to be sold on Teddy. Now, if he comes in and lights it up, feelings change, but in my eyes, he’s nothing but a stop gap. I, like many others in here, are willing to admit this, while others feel the same way, yet want to be pretty about it.

Quiet Teddy will have some of those same folks rooting for him against him soon enough

He was an alt in the biggest popularity contest with terrible numbers that year.

Last year he was on a top team thats loaded with talent and he was pedestrian.

It is but I'm not being paid and typing on phones suck so I still don't care. Sick burn, would hurt a lot more if you weren't talking out your butt on this conversation. Just kidding, not at all lol.

Some people here are feed so much mediocrity for so long that they actually seek it.

3200 yards 14 tds and 9 ints and the Pro Bowl is LOL funny. If you think that is "great" that I am tapping out.  And its also LOL you are hyping his 5 games last season on an absolutely loaded team.  Dree Brees had a rating of 116 and played more games and a harder schedule.  That offense/team was one of the best in the NFL.   Teddy, to this date, has been an average NFL qb.

He was an alternate of an alternate on the largest Pro Bowl roster in history due to so many players opting out. He had to have had the worst Pro Bowl season in modern NFL history, but he was surrounded by a very good team so they succeeded in spite of his pedestrian QB play. He was 22nd in passing yardage and 26th in passing TDs that season. He went to the Pro Bowl because his team went 11-5 because Adrian Peterson led the NFL in rushing yardage and TDs with nearly 1500 yards and 11 TDs while they had the #5 overall defense. Teddy was just along for the ride.

So if we get him a good cast he can do well? Sounds good to me.

We're very unlikely to build a top 5 D or a good OL within the next two seasons. Teddy likely doesn't see the final year of his contract when his cap hit jumps to $26M and we can recoup $21M of it. He's a placeholder for the next guy.

He would have to be who he has never been for this to not come true.

Maybe. We did go DT, DE, S, CB, S, DT, CB in the draft. And we picked up a starting WR and a starting LT in free agency. We should sneak into the playoffs in two years and be on top of the NFCS in three. Barring injury TB should be integral in that.
