I'd love to see Teddy traded to Miami or Tampa Bay, where he would provide an immediate upgrade in leadership and QB play. I'll be watching tonight and pulling for Teddy to look great, and hopefully earn another chance to start either in NY or elsewhere.

Teddy looked great. I hope he plays so well he makes the Vikings regret letting him go. Jets should trade Darnold and keep Teddy, but they are stupid.

With the struggles with the back up QB in LA. My guess he gets traded to go there. Almost everywhere else has their 1 and 2 maybe except Bears, and the Giants where he might go there.

It's worth noting, however, that Darnold received little help from a shaky offensive line that added precious few reinforcements in the offseason.

Through two preseason games, the former USC star has completed 21 of 29 passes (72.4 percent) for 158 yards (5.45 YPA), one touchdown, one interception and an 82.3 passer rating. More problematic, he's led just two scoring drives in 10 possessions.
Where Bridgewater has the advantage thus far is in decision-making, uncanny ball placement and a willingness to pull the trigger on deeper throws. Through two games, he has completed 17 of 23 passes (73.9 percent) for 212 yards (9.2 YPA), two touchdowns, one interception and a 113.0 passer rating.

Perhaps most promising from the perspective of teams weighing the cost-benefit analysis of surrendering draft capital in trade talks, Bridgewater has moved well in and out of the pocket and bounced right back after taking a hit to his lower legs. NFL Network analyst Charley Casserly believes the Jets' version of Bridgewater might end up being an improvement on the player who earned the Pepsi Rookie of the Year award with the Vikings in 2014.
