I can guarantee you that if he didnt get hurt and threw for another sub 20 TD passes, management would be considering letting him walk come contract time. Where did he improve from year 1 to 2?? He didnt!!! Go stat digging please. He started in 3.5 MORE games his 2nd season than his first and dipped in most categories. His YPA dropped, his YPG dropped, his yards barely moved, his TDs didnt budge, he turned the ball over a few less times, etc. There was next to no improvement. And please dont even bother saying record. Adrian Peterson was the reason we were 11-5. Literally. When he played bad, we lost. When he played good, we won.StumpHunter wrote: ↑Mon Dec 03, 2018 12:25 pmHe was the answer to the GM and HC in 2016. When you don't draft a QB, or have any reasonable backup plan, and you feel you are a SB team, doesn't that mean you think your current QB was the answer? Sorry if you don't like Teddy's TD numbers, but Vikings management sure felt the same way about Teddy as I did.Pondering Her Percy wrote: ↑Mon Dec 03, 2018 12:02 pm
Teddy WAS the answer? Based off what man? Look at his numbers. He was a below average at best game managing QB. Yeah a guy that threw a whopping 14 TDs in his first year and improved little in his 2nd year by throwing for 14 more once again (and played more games) is "our answer". But hey, he moved and threw well against 2nd-3rd stringers in the preseason so he must be the answer now! No. Saying he was the answer for this team, doesnt help your argument thats for sure. It causes fans to drastically question your thinking. Because not one fan on here, not one NFL analysts, not anyone is mentioning or thinking Teddy Bridgewater was our answer OVER Kirk Cousins other than you. So yeah, I really cant tell what you know and dont know about football. But I can tell you that your argument will continue to carry little weight. Given the guy STILL hasnt been back to being a starter in this league and might now ever. But THAT's the guy that was our answer over Kirk Cousins...... I'm done
Personally, I would love to have the 2015 offense that Teddy lead right now. Horrible line, his best receiver a rookie, with the rest being garbage He still managed to get more YPA than the great Cousins. I wonder what he could do in a legit passing offense and not one built around a RB who doesn't help in the passing game, throwing to the veteran Diggs and Thielen? I know what Cousins can do, and I haven't been impressed.
I find it funny too that you say his YPA was "better than the great Kirk Cousins" when it was 7.2 compared to 7.1 But fail to mention Teddys accuracy sitting in the low 60's compared to Cousins who has floated around the high 70's. Weird....
But you would love to have that 2015 offense back? Wow. No comment.
But you've been impressed with what Teddy Bridgewater can do? Are you like buddies with this guy? Look at guys like Mahomes, Trubisky, Goff, Wentz, etc. Look what they do in their 2nd years!! They take off. Teddy flat-lined or maybe even went backwards. Then blows his knee out. The guy has done NOTHING to warrant he could be a legit Goff/Wentz type QB in this league. But you continue to disagree. You're drawing dead man. You arent changing my mind or anyone elses on here. We can put this to bed anytime now. Bridgewater will forever be mediocre at best.
