Teddy Bridgewater Backtracks on Panthers Criticism
After a bit of offseason controversy, it appears that everything has been cleared up between Teddy Bridgewater and his former team, the Carolina Panthers. According to James Palmer of the NFL Network, the former Panthers quarterback has now backtracked on his recent comments criticizing his former team.
Bridgewater claims that his comments were simply "taken out of context," and he has "nothing but respect" for offensive coordinator Joe Brady.
It's hard to imagine how Bridgewater's comments could have been taken out of context. As a reminder, he was critical that Brady and the Panthers didn't spend enough time practicing red zone or two-minute situations.
How those comments could be construed as simply out of the wrong context is beyond us. But still, it appears that both sides wanted to dissuade any ideas of bad blood. Panthers coach Matt Rhule responded initially that he was disappointed in the comments, but this situation seems like it could have gone a lot worse.
