There’s no way Bridgewater is the starter next year, right?

And I succeeded. Just because we owe him money next season doesn't mean we have to start him next season. 

Good try though. 

You clearly don't understand how sports work. 

 

Or what sunken cost means.

For all of you (most of you) who were so excited when Teddy first got here last offseason well you reap what you sow. Teddy will continue to be the player he was brought in to be until we find a suitable replacement, and that is a low end starter who is a bridge player and will continue to secure us a high draft pick until we draft a QB.

Did you guys think Rhule and Tepper were joking when they said they don't expect to win for awhile? Rhule was given an incredibly long leash. We could have back to back to back losing records for the next 2-3 years and everything will be going "according to schedule." They said something about 3-5 seasons before they expect to start winning? I'd say we're right on schedule.

bye bye

This new ownership, coach, and FO sticking with Teddy would be an incredibly huge red flag signalling zero change . I've been a diehard fan since day 1 and this would be hugely disappointing.

Nice attitude, btw. Y'all are welcome to enjoy perpetual mediocrity if such low-hanging fruit like not starting Teddy is ignored. Been a fan since day 1 and it would be a huge gut-punch.

Joe Brady (and by extension Rhule) stuck his neck out and VOUCHED for Theodore.  You think those two are willing to show any humility at all by pulling the plug in year one and admitting they were wrong?

Rhule pulled him in a two score game. Yeah, he's ready to move on

I daresay that Rhule and Tepper were setting the bar low with these quotes. After the performance this year and a few specific glaring weaknesses being clear limitations I want to believe they're smart enough to not play dumb and try to ignore them. Even if the wins weren't there this team showed too much promise and quicker than expected.

He's under contract. He absolutely will be. 

Being under contract doesn’t mean he’ll be a starter. There’s 31 other guys under contract who aren’t starters.

He's currently the best QB on our roster. Why wouldn't the best QB on your roster be the starter? 

Should we look for an upgrade? Absolutely. Will we succeed? Maybe, but I don't any QB we take in the draft will be starting week 1.

I mean... $21M committed to him in dead cap makes it really, really hard for me to see otherwise. The team is in a reasonable position to trade up for a QB, or they can gamble on Teddy continuing to regress and shoot for Sam Howell or one of the 2022 QB free agents. The real question is: do you trade up in front of ATL?

Teddy was a Hurney decision . Tepper and now Rhule is not on board with Teddy .  With Grier now also done , we will bring in a Qb and maybe two .  We must keep Moton and try to keep Samuel .

I assume one of those 2 are a QB we drafted on the first round. None of the QBs out there right now are franchise QB caliber. We will be stuck in QB purgatory.

Its so sad, i watched the youtube highlights of cam vs jets (maybe they suck so bad) week 17 and even those plays (who knows they edited the bad plays away) were easily better than any plays made by TeddyB I have seen this year,  I even saw  a philly special where cam jogged in with the end zone TD reception. I wish we had those days here with carolina with a healthy cam

Lol. What is Brady supposed to say after Marty signs Teddy? 1) fug I really wish he didn't do that, Teddy blows. Or 2) Excited to have Teddy, he fits the system. 

Come on, man....

Will TB5 be on the roster next year?  Yes, 100%, he will.

Will he start?  At least as far as week 1 of 2021 is concerned, it seems very likely at this point, regardless of what we do during the offseason.

Will he start week 17 of 2021?  That is far less clear at this point.
