Who would you rather sign?

  1. Teddy Bridgewater

    60.0%
  2. Josh McCown

    40.0%

    Teddy is done. Good for him if he could steal a few million from Woody, but he cant help the team. McCown is the guy to groom a young QB.

    Both. Sign both, have them compete to start, draft a QB at 6. If QB isn't ready, let either McCown or Bridgewater be the bridge QB till drafted QB is ready. Ideally, you want your first round QB pick to play straight away.

    I personally would cut Petty, sign Bridgewater, draft a QB at 6 or move up.

    You have Bridgewater/Hack as bridge QB's, and maybe Mayfield?

    Bridgewater scored a terrifying 20 on the Wonderlic. A total non starter for anybody playing the QB position in the NFL. Bridgewater in his first two seasons played in a low risk simplified offense that tried to mask his deficiencies. He is not a playmaker. He was not trusted to push the ball downfield. He cannot read defenses, he is not accurate down the field. Anything other than checkdown dumpoffs he cannot do. Now even his mobility is a question

    Please steer clear from this looming disaster at QB.

    I always felt bridgewater was very vanilla in the offence the Vikings had. Very simplified as it's been mentioned here. Not really a bad thing as the offence needs to be dumbed down a bit for the rookie QB we draft . No way does the Jets pass on a QB because we sign Teddy. He hasn't played any meaningful football for 2 years!! As far as durability he had a very bad injury but McCown is no iron man himself. I thought Teddy first but I do like the leadership McCown brings and think he'd be the best of the two to bring a young QB along.

    Bridgewater was a JAG before the serious injury. How much more of a JAG will he be after?

    I voted McCown but I really don't want him back either.

    This is depressing.

    $100 million in cap space have they signed ANYONE yet?

    If they sign Bridgewater, expect BPA-D at #6, no QB drafted until the 4th round earliest. At least if they sign McCown we can delude our selves for a while that Macc is actually trying to build from the ground up through the draft. Of course I have zero faith that he can accomplish that because he's shown very little in the way of talent assessment, but that's the only hope we have left at this point.

    The wonderlic is a very stupid, outdated test. Go look at some of the questions they ask. Has absolutely nothing to do with football IQ.

    Fitz has like the highest score ever and anytime a defense plays zone he panics and throws the ball up for grabs.

    Teddy by all accounts has a very high football IQ and an intricate understanding of NFL offenses, having run a pro style system all the way back to Louisville. His football knowledge was touted as his best attribute coming out. I have no idea where you’re getting the information in your post from.

    Also his college completion percentage was over 68 and his NFL is just under 65. Questioning his accuracy is off base as well.

    Bridgewater plus a 1st rd QB gives us the best chance to fix the QB position long term. As I’ve said I fear Mac not being desperate for a 1st rd QB with Bridgewater in the fold and that’s the only thing I have against signing him.

    One of the best things about him is his age...at 25 he can still improve and is young enough to bounce back from this injury better so than say a 39 year old Josh McCown. I'm all on board with either....but they have to draft a QB with the 1st pick regardless who they sign.

    Absolutely.

    I would definitely smokescreen the shit out of it though.

    “Jets have Bridgewater, 25, in long term plans”

    “New York confident in Bridgewater’s health, will build around him through the draft”

    Then take a QB in April.

    That's the problem: they don't HAVE to do anything. Sure, common sense says they have to, but did Macc show common sense in drafting Hack with the 2nd pick? We have no idea what he's thinking or what his plan is, all we know is what hes done, and those results aren't encouraging.

    Get Teddy and get him quick and have every doctor you can possibly find check out that knee. If he is back to 100% then MAYBE take something other then QB at 6. If it isn't fully recovered get Rosen or Mayfield. If they sign McCown then QB at 6/trade up is a must.
