Teddy Bridgewater is having a career year.

I think we should all stop to appreciate the fact that Teddy Bridgewater is having a career year statistically this year, and is on pace to far outperform his other campaigns. Who knows, Paton may decide with the poor draft options at QB in 2022, that Teddy Two Gloves is the future of the franchise. Fangio seems pleased as well. For the fans that expected the playoffs this year with him, I pasted a chart comparing his stats through 7 games, what they would look like over a full season, and then the career ranking.

The chart below shows several metrics. I extrapolated out of a 16 game season since obviously Teddy has never completed a 17 game season. His injury history suggests it's unlikely he has a full season anyway.

Career bests in completion %, TD %, QB Rating, Passing Yards, and Completed Air Yards (he's throwing deeper than ever before!).

A couple of years ago he had a game winning drive. Over his career he has one about every 10 starts (skewed by his rookie year where he had 3) so we'll hope to see one this year. 7 wins might be a stretch but with an additional game this year, he might get it. Overall though, we're witnessing a career year, which is what we all were hoping for when we named him starter!
