In a video press conference Thursday, Carolina Panthers head coach Matt Rhule talked about his new QB Teddy Bridgewater saying that he has mastered the system and he has underrated ability as a deep ball passer. (Carolina Panthers on Twitter)
The knock on Bridgewater throughout his career has been his below average arm strength. When asked about his inability to throw the deep ball, Rhule said "I don't really listen, hear those things. Teddy, for us, is exactly what we want." Bridgewater will have a lot of weapons with whom to work with on offense this season in Carolina, from Christian McCaffrey to D.J. Moore, Curtis Samuel, and Robby Anderson. He’s currently the ECR’s QB25, but has an opportunity to prove he’s worth a whole lot more than that in what should be an offense that is playing catch-up in a lot of games this season.
