Teddy Bridgewater Leaves The NFC South

April 28th, 2021

That didn’t last long.

The marriage of Teddy Bridgewater and the Carolina Panthers has ended. The very average starting quarterback was dealt today to the Broncos for a sixth-round draft pick, presumably to unseat their very average (if that) QB Drew Lock.

Yes, life in the NFL really sucks when you don’t have a good quarterback. (See The Lost Decade of Bucs football) Denver will hope Bridgewater/Lock will somehow win big in a division that features Patrick Mahomes, Justin Herbert and three-time Pro Bowler Derek Carr. Good luck with that.

Joe had kept a close eye on Bridgewater ever since he was lauded so much by Bucco Bruce Arians and was labeled as a likely Plan B if the Bucs didn’t sign Tom Brady.

Joe actually is glad Bridgewater is out of the NFC South. Joe would much prefer a quarterback in his first season in a new offense (Sam Darnold) and one with less experience — in general and against the Bucs.

    If I’m a DE/OLB, I’m salivating at my bonus sacks on Darnold. He was overrated at USC, the Jets, and now Carolina.

    This is going to be fun.

    Good luck to Teddy. Class act.

  3. All lives matter Says:

    Carolina wasn’t a good fit like New Orleans was. Maybe under OC Pat Shurmur he will thrive this season.

  4. Mitch Says:

    A 3 million dollar investment and a 6th round pick means he’s the next back-up for whoever the Broncos draft tomorrow.

  5. K2 Says:

    Sam Darnold will be a better QB than Bridgewater. The Jets would make Brady, Rodgers, and Mahomes look bad too (Jets are special).

  6. Ghost of Darrell Henderson Says:

    Looks like the Stinkin Panthers are making room for Fields or Lance. I’ll bet the Lions trade back and someone like Belicheat or the Redskins leapfrogs them.

    It’ll be interesting.

    My pick for tomorrow for the Bucs, trade up with the Jags (25th) and select a “Generational talent” Caleb Farley CB VT. They’ll need to jump in front of the Brownies and Aints to steal him. It might cost the 32nd and their 5th round pick.

  7. Cainishere Says:

    More than likely the Bucs will pick an edge rusher but if it were me I’d be trading picks for a QB in the first round line help and thats it. Trade the rest away for next season’s draft when we will have more needs to address.

  8. Rod Munch Says:

    Dopes in here were literally saying they’d rather have Bridgewater than Brady.

    Also the media reporting that the Bucs were hot for Bridgewater last year… LOL! Yeah, get a QB with a noodle arm who is afraid to throw downfield. It never made any sense at all, and I have no idea why anyone would have believed it. Bridgewater had a nice 6-game span where he got to play one of the worst Bucs defenses ever twice – and he padded his stats there. He’s nothing special as a starter, although I wouldn’t mind him as a backup. Well, I’d rather have literally anyone other than Gabbert as backup.

  9. BucEmUp Says:

    If they get good play from their oline Darnold could be really good.. I mean he played for the jets.

  10. Pewter Power Says:

    I think Brady helped this coaching staffs playbook and quarterback evaluation process in addition to winning the super bowl. If you think the heir apparent is there go get em in first or second. People wanted Winston to sit behind Brady and learn don’t know why that is such a crazy idea.

    People like me remember before and after of the las super bowl no more Raheem, schiano, Jim bates fays here I want to continue winning not trade it for a couple good years even if they do end in Super Bowls

  11. Mike Johnson Says:

    Denver got a steal. A 6th rounder for teddy? I think he plays again sometime during this upcoming season. He is not a bad QB. We have seen far worst.

  12. Buc Fan Since 1998 Says:

    I agree with Pewter Power ….I also wanted Winston to sit behind Brady to learn and then he step back up to the No.1 QB. And with the improved Line, He would have more time to scan the field and use that rifle arm of his for 6000 yards seasons.

  13. BA4President Says:

    I like that we are now accepting that the primary quarterback of the lost decade, Winston, played an unmistakable role in the team’s failures.
