None of those good coaches NFL wanted him starting anymore.

Without having a horrific injury Teddy is likely still starting in MN.  He’s a very good spot starter and high end backup.  He’s very accurate and he’s probably right about Carolina.  Rhule was a downgrade at HC for them.

Glad we avoided Rhule as coach.  This guy's answer to the qb position is to sign Bridgewater to a 3 year deal and after that blew up in his face, trade a 2nd for Darnold and commit to him for a 5th year?

What a dope!

are you sure the head coach is making personnel decisions?

In Rhule's defense, with Teddy at QB there wasn't much chance of getting in the RZ. 

Sure he's 9 TD in 5 starts and 5 wins for NO including a QBR of 99.1 says Rhule is a genius.   Rhule signed him to a long term deal and doubled down on Darnold without any results.   Maybe Rhule isn't a great NFL HC.

Matt Rhule has it written in his contract that he has final say on the roster.  Of course he's making the decision on the QB.   That's also one of the reasons he's not the HCNYJ.

Well I am sure the GM has a lot of input but not taking Jones or Fields at 8 IMO was just dumb. Yes you have 1 less player for 2020 in the draft but you have insurance against Darnold and even if they did not play Fields or Jones would still fetch a first in a trade a year or 2 down the road.

Generally that does not extend to the draft, but I do think he has more power in personnel than most HCs

Agreed. I actually think it would have been a safer move to take a QB early because it would give him two chances at QB vs the one with Darnold. 

He picked Teddy, that didn't work. 
He traded for Darnold, and if that doesn't work will the Panthers give him a 3rd chance at a QB?  

And if the Panthers go 6-10, they won't really be in position to take a QB at 1/2. And they won't even have a 2nd round pick to use to trade up because they used that pick to get Darnold.

Unless they were like the Jets and thought the only 2 QB's in this draft that were better than Sam were TL and Wilson.
