I am selling that the rest of the team stepped up because of Teddy as you just stated.
But the rest of the team stepped up because they felt they had to shoulder more of the burden and to compensate for Teddy being the QB. That just seems odd to turn that into "the team won because of Teddy."

Really like Teddy and so Happy he is/ was on our team.. Yes, we were undefeated when he started, but our O amd coaching were fantastic during that stretch. He seems like a great guy and should definitely be starting somewhere next year. However, if you pay him $30M/year, I don’t see that team going very far.
Wish TB the best. Money we can spend elsewhere

A QB who had a QB rating over 100 in those 5 games with only 2 interceptions and 9 TDs is the most overrated backup ever?

What the heck?
A couple of things:

I guess we are discounting the Rams game, even though he attempted 30 passes. Fine. Still, a couple of things:

9 TDs in 5 games, I guess it is ok, right? 1.8 per... however, 4 of those 9 came against a team that, coincidentally, gave 4 TDs per game, Tampa. Big boost in the rating too, 131.

So that leaves you with 5 TDs in 4 games. Which is not as pretty.

Then you look at the Jacksonville and Dallas games, 8 quarters of football, 1 TD 1 INT.

Maybe someone decides to give Bridgewater $30 mil to be their starter QB. It's happened before that a backup wins some games and gets starter money somewhere else.

Is he better than Ryan Tannehill, Nick Foles, Jacoby Brissett and Joe Flacco? If your answer is YES. Then that settles it..

Somebody will pay him. Matt Stafford never won nothing and he got paid
How about Goff, Cousins & Jimmy G, as well. There are several quarterbacks making a ton of money & it sure does not always look like they earn it.

I think TB will get around $25 million. I'm not seeing a team shelling out $30 million for a QB who only played 5 games last season. If a team offers $30 million plus, you run and sign that contract and don't look back.

I think the world of Teddy and really wish we could keep him. It hangs on whether Brees retires or not. If Brees retires, I think the Saints will try to sign Teddy. I think there's room for both him and Hill on the roster.

All that said. A lot can happen between the draft and free agency. Curious to see how it pans out.

The team surely rallied around him. It's about the market not the player. Do you think that Jimmy G is that much better than Teddy? Teddy has a better resume than Jimmy G and this is what he got (via wiki):
"signed a $137.5 million deal with the 49ers, at the time the largest contract in NFL history on an annual basis".
Oh yea I know. I thought that was an absurd contract then and I still do. He’s a game manager just like Teddy. Game managers shouldn’t get top 10 QB money.

Thanks to multiverse theory, there's a universe where the Saints tender Taysom Hill at a 1st rounder and the Patriots pick him up. Giving us a 1st.

And then we franchise Teddy and someone signs him and we get another first.

And then we use those picks to get a franchise QB in this draft.

I most definitely think we won because of him. Everyone raised their sense of urgency because of him. As soon as Brees got back we reverted back to what we have been. The Saints were a different team because of Teddy.

The saints were a different team because everyone stepped up, including Payton. That’s not winning because of Teddy. It’s the complete opposite in fact.

For the games we lost, did we lose because of Brees? The defense relaxed, and play calling was off.

They took a risk on him and it didn't pay off. The difference in the superbowl is they have a game manager, KC has a game changer. Exactly why I want our next QB to be a game changer.

30 mil is not top QB money, 40 mil is. That's what Mahommes will get and why Dak can't agree with Jerry because he wants 35+. A starting QB gets 25 + in the current market.
30 mil would put him tied for top 6 salary wise. He may be worth it to a QB needy team, but in terms of QB play and worth, I think it’s high.

People don’t understand the nature of the league, it’s not your mom and dad NFL teams will spend and waste money .
Teddy value should be 10-20 million Teddy will probably get 25-28 million because of demand and teams are desperately in need of a QB . Teddys a proven one with success who can make all the throws he’ll get more than his fair share

I agree, especially with a Rivers and a Brady (highly likely) out there. Those two will set the market price for aged FA QB’s. And these two may also actually have an impact on any new salary amount Drew would get. I do not doubt for ONE second, Drew’s agent, is advising Drew well on this. We’ll se e soon enough. And I think if the market dictates such a perceived low price to Drew and his agent, it may be the catalyst that drives him into retiring.
A new deal for Drew will need to be done before free agency starts. Brady and Rivers can't even start negotiations until 2-3 days before and can't sign until the league year officially starts. If Drew and the Saints wait until then in order to see what Brady and Rivers gets then Drews cap hit for 2021 will accelerate to this year. Thats $5.4 mil added to the $15.9 the team already is charged this year.

Impossible. Franchise tags must be applied before 4:00pm EST on March 10th. Restricted tags are applied until the 18th and the player has until April 17th to collect off sheets and turn one into the originating team.

Great explanation from Florio here.

The report isn’t likely coming from Bridgewater’s agent, but from rival agents of other QBs who are trying to scare teams away from Bridgewater and steer them towards their own clients.
