Bridgewater will get paid... somewhere

Bree’s isn’t going to play much longer. The saints would be smart to pay him and keep him around for after Brees is gone. It’s not like he has to wait long. If he was smart he would want to stay and wit with as good as this team has been.

Teddy is  16 wins and 5 losses his last 21 starts...

 

5 - 0 for New Orleans taking over for the injured Drew Brees. ( 6 - 1 overall )  Impressive.

What are some possible teams? Last year, I wanted him to sign with an AFC team, like the Steelers. He would have been starting for them and probably winning more games. We (Vikings fans) hope the Bears don't sign him.

 

Teddy is a game manager but he wins. Wins is what matters. JMO

Teddy, Foles and Brissett are showing the NFL why paying extra for one of the best backups out there might be a smart investment.  

 

I have to think a contender for his services might just be your division rival Bears.  Teddy if he's smart is going to want to go to a good team that just needs better quarterbacking.  Likewise teams that want to sign him as a medium or long term answer should make sure that they have a decent team in which a game manager QB could find success.  

 

Bears are probably the best team in the league right now that's being held back by it's quarterback and would find improvement out of Bridgewater.  

 

Most of the other teams that need QB's right now are also not very good outside of the QB.

And what do the Bears do with that $96,000,000 contract of Trubisky’s, through 2022?

 

Mitchell is still on his rookie contract.  If he plays poorly the rest of the year, he can become a QB2 next year (2020) at a cost of $9,237,593.  2021 brings up the choice of picking up his 5th year option, negotiating a contract commiserate to the circumstances at that point, or letting him become a free agent (UFA).

 

But Trubisky still has the rest of the season to get back on track, which would reduce the Teddy to the Bears projections.

The Saints are going to mess this up, which I can’t wait fer. Payton and Brees have been in love with each other for years and Brees homers are as blind as Brady homers. He hasn’t been able to throw the ball more than 30 yards for years and he’s survived similar to Brady because of the era we’re in. Yet there’s no way they don’t put Brees back on ASAP.

Yup, didn’t notice on sportrac that it was defaulting to “market value.” 

 

Thanks for correcting.

    • I would, he's been a flag magnet as of late.
    • I agree.  We should make it at 10-6 but 9-7 looks iffy.  But we will likely see the #2 seed unless we ca win 11 games.  Eason should start if we miss the playoffs because Rivers will be done.  I think that would also see Jacoby back as the backup.  I can't see him being signed to start elsewhere, certainly not paid starter money.  
    • What a boss. Finds out he has cancer but still shows up to work on Sunday. Dude is gonna beat it and come back better than ever. 
    • Only if we lose 4 straight or are out of the playoffs.     We should finish no worse than 9-7.  That may not make the playoffs though as a wildcard.  We have to not only pick up 2 games over TN in 5 games, we'd also have to beat their AFC record.  We have 5 AFC games left, they have 3.  We have 2 less wins in the AFC.  We have to win 2 more than them, so if they say win 2 of their 3 AFC games, that is no possible without sweeping the season.  We are screwed on so many tie breakers right now  If we get eliminated from the playoffs, Eason should immediately finish the season unless he is simply not cutting it, then Brissett should because no playoffs, no Rivers.     I think we could win 3 of 5 however and be a Wildcard. I don't love our chances at 10-6 though with all the tiebreaker losses. Cleveland is likely in with their easy schedule. Baltimore has the tiebreaker. LV may play themselves out of it so that would leave us as the 6th or 7th seed.  KC or Buf/TN.  We may yet get revenge on TN.  I would pick us with a full roster rematch.  
    • You dislike Philip Rivers? You have since he was in college? Couldn't really tell from your post, but you're not Tiffany's high school boyfriend or anything are you?
