Carolina Panthers Reason No. 3: Teddy Bridgewater’s scheme fit

This has been arguably the most difficult offseason NFL teams have been forced to contend with for quite some time. The current climate has prevented OTAs and minicamps from taking place. And this is a predicament that has the potential to impact the Carolina Panthers more than most.

One positive from Teddy Bridgewater’s perspective heading into 2020 is his relationship with offensive coordinator Joe Brady. The pair worked together during their time with the New Orleans Saints. And this is going to stand them and the organization in good stead despite their lack of time together on the field.

There is little doubt that Brady had a huge say in getting Bridgewater to Carolina. And the player/coordinator relationship could be a profitable one. Brady comes into the league having masterminded LSU’s historic passing attack last season which brought them a national championship and transformed quarterback Joe Burrow from a mid-round prospect into the consensus No. 1 overall pick.

If the duo can have anything close to this sort of production in 2020, then the sky is the limit for the Panthers’ offense. The likes of D.J. Moore, Robby Anderson, Christian McCaffrey, Curtis Samuel, and Ian Thomas will all have to do their part. And if they can put some significant p

oints on the board it is going to give the franchise an opportunity to become something of a surprise package.

This will without question give Bridgewater a better chance of being a long-term starter. And it should also dispel the myth that he is merely a stop-gap until the organization finds the right draft prospect to take them forward.
