Yes

Why? Philip Rivers, who cant scramble, and no arm is going to take this team further than JB or Teddy Bridgewater? What makes you think that?

That being said, players should demand money because it’s all short lived so make the money while you can. 

 

I get that, but atleast be realistic about your value. That's like me going to my boss and demanding to get paid 100 dollars an hour. It's not gonna happen.

You can be replaced easier than a pro athlete. Plus you aren’t going to work everyday with the potential of a career ending injury. Contact and all that. Anything could happen but they have more bargaining than you do with your boss haha

All I'm saying is understand your value. Bridgewater is not a top 5 QB to be demanding 30 mil a year.

The art of negotiating is to go high. He isn’t going to say yea I’ll settle for 20 or whatever you give me. Just like Dak. You start high and get them to meet or counter. 
 

That being said, FA allows for dumb money to be spent because of bidding wars. So he will get a good chunk of change. Maybe 25/26 per year for 4 years.

If he gets anything past 20, I'd be shocked.

I’d be shocked if any team signs him to any 4-5 year deal period.

Prepared to be shocked. Nick Foles got a 4yr/ 88 mil contract. Based on reports of teams already wanting Teddy plus each year the dollar value rises in FA I would not be shocked at all for a 4 year deal of close to 25 per year. That’s the nature of FA. Teams are QB hungry and will spend cash.

Nick Foles was still riding off his super bowl high.

Regardless in my opinion teams have a higher regard for Teddy.

Based on what? 5 games? Teams are extremely desperate if that's what their wasting their money on.

There are Matt Flynn’s of the world who get paid on less. Jimmy G didn’t have endless games under his belt before getting that big contract. It’s FA so don’t get caught up in to much other than teams see his ability and even in the said 5 games he wasn’t terrible. 5-0 I believe.

5-0 on a really good saints team. Doesn't mean I wanna give him the keys to the franchise.

I just don’t think a GM is that stupid, to put their job on the line for Teddy with a huge contract. 
 

Rotoworld reported 2 years ago, he would command 15M a season and it didn’t happen.

GM’s have done dumber stuff. Read previous posts. Plus what root world posted 2 years ago has no relevance now.

Are you saying career or just last years? I’m referring to last year since that’s what the conversation has been on. 


Last season, but he’s never averaged 250 in a season period. Just like JB. 
 

Anyways, you like him I don’t and I think he’s overrated and coddled. It is what it is. 
 

Cheers

I think Teddy is better than JB but I question if he's a franchise guy. 

He isnt.  I dont care how much Payton loves Brees.  If Teddy is that guy,  they would ask Brees to retire

They would never ask Brees to retire.  It's like having the Colts ask Manning to retire or the Steelers asking Ben to retire.  He's an icon in NO.  They would never do that.  They would love to hold on to Teddy but their circumstances won't allow that to happen.  That's all there is to it.  Teddy has shown this year that he is a franchise QB.  If he goes to the right team he will be a winner.  And he gets to pick that team.  It doesn't get any better than that for him.

It looks like Brees will come back for one more year and so will Hill who will be the backup until he takes over in 2021. 
 

Bridgewater will walk and sign with another team and be their QB.

The Packers FO were ready for Favre to leave, because they had Rogers in the wings. The Colts cut Manning and drafted Luck. 
 

Sorry, but if Teddy was a Franchise QB, the Saints would lock him up.

 

There might be one “sucker GM” who will gamble on TB with a big contract, but I don’t see him sniffing a 20M a year contract.

There is a big difference in asking a QB to retire so his backup can take his place than being ready to move on because a player is older or injured.  Sorry that's apples and oranges.  The conversation was about asking Brees to retire so they could give it to Teddy.  Absurd.  Entirely different circumstances with Favre and Manning.  Your attempt to make them identical is laughable.

Bottom line, NO doesn't let Ted walk if he's seen as a franchise guy.

Manning won a SB with Denver and broke Brady’s TD record. Favre took the Vikes to the playoffs. Your a very funny, gullible and confused guy.

Bottom line, NO can't afford to pay both their current market value.  One had to go.  And it certainly wasn't going to be Brees.

If they saw Teddy as the franchise QB, NO would either 1) make the choice to keep him over Brees (which will be a 1 or 2 year deal at most), or 2) dump some others to make room. They have plenty of mediocre/average guys making more than they should (that could be replaced in the draft or FA) which is why they're hard against the cap in the first place.

They would never make the choice to keep Teddy over Brees when Brees is still showing he can with them a SB now.  If he was regressing maybe.  They would have to dump a lot of players to keep both thereby weakening the team and hurting their chances for an immediate SB run.  Counting on rookies and cheap FAs to fill the void is a a big gamble.  I think they are all in for this year and the last thing they would want to do is weaken the team by dumping players and keeping both QBs at market value.

    • By now, we should be smart enough to just go look at the numbers, the deaths, the active cases, the recovered and make up our mind. You should not be reliant on media reporting for just the numbers aspect of it, just my take on it. I can bring up the news network that you did not mention as well and poke holes in them as to what they do not provide coverage on as well but this is not the thread for it.   I go here and just look at the numbers every day and make up my mind based on all the categories:   https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/country/us/   As my posts suggest, if we are smart about it and plan it out well, I do not see a reason for no football. 
    • its about the numbers, 22 players on the field isnt a lot but 70,000 in the stands is
    • The odds a vaccine are not high. I'm just going to say it (again) you're all being lied to at a incredible rate about this virus and the simplest answer, given that they're usually right, is that it's an election year.  The corporate media (comcast, disney ect) have an agenda and bias and the current admin doesn't share it. Why won't any of the ABC, NBC, CNN of the world report the death rate as opposed to saying "the death rate doesn't matter" and tabling the number? Why won't any of them talk about the border? Or what of New Mexico and their policy that's different from Arizona or Texas?  The virus spreading among people who aren't at severe risk is actually a good thing- sorry Tony Fauci (he needs fired for the lies, the spin, the just getting it wrong and then blaming people who notice this.. he sucks). That is if we'd like to get back to normal- which get's back to it's an election year. Now if you don't mind I'm going to check the Premier League standings, or any number of other leagues the world over that's not based out of a country with an election this year. The lies. The damned lies.   
    • Yes, and that's exactly what they did! https://www.nydailynews.com/sports/football/giants/ny-deandre-baker-quinton-dunbar-icloud-warrant-coverup-20200710-luc6jyesjjes5e3l56g4bpbnqm-story.html   Video evidence, Instagram DMs, testimony show payoff cover-up for DeAndre Baker and Quinton Dunbar, further implicate NFL players in crime. The warrant allegedly shows witness Dominic Johnson oversaw the payoff of DeAndre Baker’s and Quinton Dunbar’s four alleged victims at the office of Dunbar’s attorney, Michael Grieco.    Dominic Johnson Instagram DM: “I made them same n----s that said they got robbed come in and say them Boys ain’t have nothing to Do with it.” Baker DM to Johnson: "Yo I’m in the city now getting cash how much to bring ?? I’m tryna get there too u ASAP.”   Unnamed team sources, asked for comment on our breaking news, said they would not expect DeAndre Baker to remain on the Giants roster much longer.”
