We have NO CHANCE with Teddy. Taysom could give us a chance if we play him like Lamar Jackson
4 out of 5 offensive linemen were backups. 2 of the backups were literally sitting on their couches a week prior - meaning they were likely outside the top 200 linemen in the NFL. He also had no Joker, no deep threat, and minimal Ingram. So the offense was fairly limited. To expect Bridgewater to have played at a high level is unreasonable. He looked reasonably comfortable and with one exception (the pic) didn't make any glaring judgment errors. He was far from perfect, but with 21 other starters and a game plan, he's likely capable of managing a game. Remember, Payton got a 300 yard game and a chance to win from McCown against a good Carolina defense via scheme and personnel. You'd be hard pressed to find a front office person who thinks 2015 McCown > 2018 Bridgewater.
