Teddy Bridgewater Is A Top 15 QB

Trust me. The man has been a baller since high school, and in college he completely turned around the University of Louisville’s football program. Teddy single handedly led the Cards to a Sugar Bowl and put a whooping on the Florida Gators. I can talk about his accolades from college all I want but you’re probably thinking, “But how does this make him a top 15 NFL QB?” It doesn’t. However, I’m not arguing that he’s the best quarterback in the NFL, that’s ridiculous. The only thing I really need to prove to you is that he’s better than the guys behind him, and to be honest I don’t think there are quarterbacks behind him that you could make a case for. I basically have Teddy out-ranking guys like Dak Prescott, Alex Smith, Jameis Winston, etc. I did not include rookies in this ranking. Let’s be honest, there are a lot of scrubs in the NFL. Don’t get me wrong; in the right situation some of these quarterbacks can be very good. For instance, Dak is in a situation that helps him because of the run support. Take that away, though, and you’ll get what we all saw last year, which was a very poor showing. Then on the other hand, you have attitude problems with Jameis, and at one time he was considered a star quarterback. Now, I wouldn’t even rank him in my top 20 or even 25. Teddy Bridgewater will be in New Orleans learning under one of the best quarterbacks of all time. In 2 years when Drew Brees is retired the Saints will have a great quarterback in Teddy to fall on. Teddy has the skill, arm strength, IQ, and intangibles needed to mold into the successor of Drew Brees. That torch is going to be passed and I am not worried that it is going to be in Teddy Bridgewater’s hands.

  1. Aaron Rodgers
  2. Tom Brady
  3. Drew Brees
  4. Russell Wilson
  5. Big Ben
  6. Carson Wentz
  7. Matt Ryan
  8. Jimmy Garoppolo
  9. Jared Goff
  10. Cam Newton
  11. Matt Stafford
  12. Deshaun Watson
  13. Andrew Luck
  14. Kirk Cousins
  15. Teddy Bridgewater

Ok, obviously all of this is opinion, and it is a wild leap to be calling someone that basically hasn’t played since 2015 a top 15 quarterback, but don’t sleep on Teddy being one of the best quarterbacks in the next 5 years. Just look at the guys behind him in the rankings and tell me that an argument couldn’t be made that (after he’s been sitting and learning under Drew Brees, and finally getting healthy) that he’s better than those guys.
