Teddy Bridgewater likely on the outs in Carolina

Yup, sure did.

..."likely...?

Nope, he's not a rookie...and he'll get his reps...but he's completely unproven and having a backup plan is prudent --- said plan is already under contract.

Do you truly believe that to be "best case"?  Pay the guy $10 million cash to go away and sign with someone else?

Zero chance anything in your last sentence ever happens.

Well, that was kind of dumb since the scenarios are completely different. You don't need a mediocre vet to mentor another vet.

Likely means probably, odds on or possibly. Since you didn't link the article, likely because it makes no sense after the Darnold threa, I have to make an assumption which is very plausible since there was a ton of discussion about us drafting a QB at 8 or trading up until SF made their trade.

Time to read. I said worst case was that we would only save $8M by releasing him. $18M new cap hit minus $10M guaranteed that we'd have to pay on release equals $8M. Again, worst case is we only save $8M by releasing him and having to pay the guarantee.

Way more than a zero chance of the last scenario. If we can trade Teddy, that scenario happens, period, simple as that. Amazing that you think there is no chance that Teddy gets release or traded after we made a trade for Darnold and committed to paying him in 2022.

The last thing Sam Darnold is, is a "vet".  He's a wet behind the ears 23-yr old deer in the headlights...

You're deluded...

...but to clarify, I do believe there's a chance TB5 is paid-in-full and then "released" --- to do so would be completely stupid but I can't deny it as a possibility.

Do you really believe there is a chance TB5 is "traded"...?!?  Surely ye jest...

We shall see.

You still predicting D. Watson to the Panthers?

When did I say that? I said everyone is innocent until proven guilty. But Teddy is gone so looks like someone is right at the moment!

America is a wonderful place where everyone is entitled to an opinion, even you.

Jake Delhomme and Steve Beuerlein are on the other side of your trade.

Darnold will get his reps, keeping TB5 on the roster will have zero effect there. 

On the flipside, Darnold could learn a lot from Teddy and having the steadying influence of such a even-keeled and competent veteran can only help Sam -- win/win.

Grier & Walker have been fully "evaluated", nothing new to be learned about them...short-timers.

You're rather patronizing for someone who has been pretty wrong about Teddy thus far.

About that article - Jake isn't one to badmouth and is the team's radio analyst (or one of them), and Steve is an announcer with skin in the game. They aren't going to voice contrary opinions. Jake said Teddy was 'pressing', which is hilarious since he was even less bold as the season went on, and Beuerlein threw out the 'new system' card even though the corporate line was that Teddy had a valuable advantage in learning the system since he was with Brady in NO. They also both played the 'needs more weapons' cliche, which was nonsense last year. 

It's the QB coach's job to coach and Teddy may or may not have anything to offer. Given the friction that showed between Teddy and the staff he may not have been fully 'as advertised' off the field when things got tough. I also personally don't want a guy as a 'mentor' who has shown zero development after 7 years in the NFL. As I said, maybe (a big one) if a rookie was coming in, but that's not the case.

With respect to evaluation Walker was 1-0 in his start and pushed the ball better than Teddy ever did. Future starter? Likely not, but possibly a better fit as a backup and certainly cheaper in the future. Teddy's salary is a sunk cost either way so if the backups were good enough last year, why not this year? Teddy has no upside and no future here, and the team is clearly moving on as they should.

Are they?

Exactly how will this go down?

I've not pretended to know the prior times you trotted out this schtick and now is no different. Between the Darnold trade and all the comments to the media, both at the end of last year and about seeking a trade, there's a lot of writing on the wall and the message is pretty clear.
