Teddy Bridgewater is a good scheme fit

One of the main reasons why the Carolina Panthers went so hard after Teddy Bridgewater in free agency was his familiarity with offensive coordinator Joe Brady. The pair worked together during their time with the New Orleans Saints and given how disrupted the offseason was due to COVID-19 health concerns, it enabled them to hit the ground running.

Hopefully, for the Panthers, Brady will still be around in 2021. The progressive young mind is coming up in plenty of speculation regarding a possible head coaching job in the not-too-distant future, and if Carolina were to lose him after just one season, it would be a devastating blow.

Not only to the organization but also from Bridgewater’s point of view.

The quarterback has worked incredibly hard to get another opportunity to be an NFL starter. It’s been a mixed bag from the signal-caller, in truth, but the positives have far outweighed the negatives despite what you read from the Cam Newton loyalists on social media.

This scheme devised by Brady has got the most out of almost all Carolina’s weapons offensively. And it’s worth noting that the Panthers have been without the services of All-Pro running back Christian McCaffrey for the majority of the campaign.
