why did we sign teddy

he had a rep for taking care of the ball and being a really efficient signal caller. with our receivers and CMC that was supposed to be a pretty decent way to build something while the defense started gelling.

Don’t understand why people think he takes care of the ball. He averages 10 Interceptions a season and combine that with him throwing 15 TDs a seasons. If he was a 25 to 30 TD QB with only 10 INTs, yeah, I’d say he takes care of the ball.

Because Joe Brady vouched for him and Tepper was still naively thinking that owners should always defer to the "football guys", which of course is a mantra spread by the very same football guys to promote their job security

this was Hurney taking one last big swing to save his job.

It never made any sense to me, and still doesn’t.  It’s a move that sadly has Hurneys fingerprints all over it.  The move, and I said it at the time was simple.  You let Cam Newton play out the final year of his contract.  If he plays well great, you can sign him, or you can tag and trade him while his value is up.  If he plays like ass your letting him walk, and ultimately picking in the top 5 and drafting a QB for the future.  
 

I don’t know why this was such a difficult concept for the front office and frankly is a move that’s given me pause.  It was the play to make.  Instead they signed Teddy, completely killing any trade opportunities they may have had for Cam.  Once Teddy was signed everyone knew Cam was about to become a casualty.  I just don’t understand the rush in signing him, nor the contract.

I’m praying I’m right and it was all Hurney because if it was Rhules incompetence I’m worried.  But I’m confident only Hurney can mess a situation up this bad, he’s just done this so many times before.

Good riddance to Marty Hurney the worst thing that’s ever happened to this franchise.

He has the same career INT% as Jared Goff and Kirk Cousins, slightly worse than someone like Kyler Murray. He's about mid-range for an NFL starter in taking care of the ball. The thing that he consistently sucks at isn't really turning the ball over, it's getting the ball into the endzone. 

His career TD% is atrocious. I had to dig deep to find similar rates. Brandon Allen, Blaine Gabbert, Brian Hoyer. So, essentially he has the TD percentage of a career backup. 

This is actually something I hadn't looked at until now but it is pretty eye opening to see where he slots into that category.

Because we made a big mistake. A GM trying to keep his job who's go to move is one move to win this year, a new owner who doesn't know much but knows he needs to win, new coaches with little NFL experience and no one in the room to know better is how we ended up with Teddy last year and now this year. I think all parties had a hand in this mistake. Hopefully they all learned something from that massive failure.
