And played well enough to convince the team not just Idzik that he could be OK as Jets starter. (he also did the same thing down the stretch in 2014 and went into 2015 under Mac and Bowles as the announced starter). So why would they want to draft Teddy in 2014 a Qb who dropped until the end of round 1. In other words all the teams in the NFL passed on him. (He isn't great either but better than his draft position). But as usual with some Jets fans they say we should have taken him after the fact. Typical of their second guessing. The difference being that the other teams drafting at that portion of the draft had QBs (or thought they did, or [ROFLMAO] drafted Johnny Manziel). Here are the QBs of the teams selecting after the Jets and before Bridgewater in 2014, in order: Tannehill, Brees, Clinton-Dix, MANZIEL, A. Smith, Dalton, Rivers, Foles, Palmer, Newton, Brady, Kaepernick, P. Manning. Other than the Browns, who made the insane mistake of drafting Manziel ahead of Bridgewater, there was no landing spot for Teddy after the Jets. So the "13 other teams passed on him" argument is really just "the Browns passed on him, too" - and that's never an argument, for anything. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
