Carolina Panthers Awards: Teddy Bridgewater – Most Disappointing Player

Disappointing players generally have hype going into a game, and this individual follows suit after receiving plenty of media attention over the past few weeks.

In the beginning, I believed Robby Anderson easily would be the most disappointing for the Carolina Panthers as he struggled in the first half. Especially in a game where he needed to step up for an offense without Christian McCaffrey.

After more thought, the most disappointing player is Teddy Bridgewater. During the three-game win streak, the quarterback had a passer rating average of 110. In Carolina’s loss vs. the Bears, this fell to 50.3.

The rough start for Bridgewater was immediate as he threw a pick on the Panthers’ first drive of the game. This is something you can bounce back from, but unfortunately for the signal-caller, this never occurred.

Even though he couldn’t find a groove yesterday, the defense still gave Bridgewater a chance to tie the game and redeem himself. The redemption process never happened, with the former first-round pick capping off his disappointing day with a game-sealing interception.

The past three weeks, Bridgewater showed the haters why the Panthers paid him, but in the game vs. the Bears, he demonstrated nothing special or inspiring.

If Bridgewater wants more respect, he’ll need to put up better numbers against top tier defenses in the future. Something we didn’t see during his games vs. the Bears and Buccaneers.

Don’t expect Bridgewater to play this uninspired continually, but his showing against the Bears places him as the most disappointing player this week.
