"Touchdown Teddy" Bridgwater

I been wondering when they would pick up the pace.Even in the early season losses he would look good in the 4th qaurter after looking pretty lost for most of the game. He seems to get a little rythmn & some confidence too. 2c

It's interesting how some of the Vikings fans have let this thread drop. Man, Bridgewater is starting to show some stuff. He was the best rookie QB this season, without a good offensive line or AP in the lineup. There is definitely some hope for the Vikings at this position.

How did that Manziel guy work out again?

I thought he looked great as a rookie he picked it up pretty quick and showed he can play through pain. That ankle was bothering him all season...can't say that about Ponder or even Cassel would have kept playing!

I have to say from the beginning part of the year to the end, he seemed to look a lot better. Hopefully it can only get better.

He has promise, but I am not going to crown his a$$!

I don't think anyone's looking to crown him, Just an honest assessment.

the kid looks good. He's got good pocket presence, looks to use his arm before his legs.

The trajectory of his balls bugs me...watching Stafford the next game really showed the difference in his throwing style. Maybe something that can be coached, I don't know. Not a deal breaker...as long as the ball gets where it's supposed to, when it's supposed to, I think he can be effective.

Nice to go into an offseason without a big ?? at QB, that's for sure. Now get him a stud receiver and shore up the o-line and I think we might just be a team to reckon with before too long.

Probably cuz every time there's the slightest bit of positivity shared about him, the likes of BigDave and Limited show up and drop a duce all over the conversation.

Haven't heard much from the Johnny lovers lately. Bh2o had a nice rookie season considering the line and offensive weapons he had to work with.

I think it is way to early to jump on the Bridgewater wagon, but he has looked good the past few games. Is this his ceiling? Will he decline? Will; he continue to improve? Have to wait and see.

Same goes for JF, will he grow up? Will he figure out in the NFL you have to try? If so, I think he has a much higher ceiling the TB. If he decides to be the college partying punk he has this season, he wont make the squad for next season.

What do you guys think of Jennings? He hasn't done much but hasn't had much at QB until now. It seems to me that if he can be talked into a reasonable contract for an aging veteran, he should be re-signed.

The last 2 or 3 games he played pretty well.He doesn't drop many & seems to read the defenses good enough so he can get open.I have to agree with you on the contract issue though.Definitely not for $8 mil/yr 2c

Pepsi ROY, not the AP ROY.

No way would TB win a fan voting contest.

At least his trophy will fit in the Minnesota trophy case!

I'm not impressed with his first 2 games this year. The 1st game was awful and the 2nd game he was little more than a game manager.

Same as last season is what I am seeing.  Way too many 3-6 yard pass attempts, loves his check downs.  I dont see a consistently accurate down field ball.  His timing is still way off.  I hope he can put together some chemistry with these wideouts.  It seems every quality QB has his favorites and in turn thats whats makes them successful, I hope Teddy finds that.  I will say his tendency to run and gain a few yards is better this year than throwing it away, though only through 2 weeks. With that said, boy did Stafford's TD pass get me off my seat, what a laser, what a perfectly placed laser at that.  Man I wish we had something like that.  Love me a gunslinger.

Still not liking what I'm seeing with Teddy. The way he has been performing we need a strong ground game so he can be a game manager. Good thing the Vike's defense and running game is looking ok. I will be interested to see how he performs when we get into a game where he has to pass.

Because his performance to date when he attempts to pass early in games is not going to get it done.

I wonder if we can get Favre to come back? :)

 

If we can just get a QB that can pass 300 yards a game, and with Peterson on the team, we would be competitive. A game managing QB doesnt have good odds to make it to a SB.

How did Teddy look in each quarter of the game?

I missed the game and am curious as to your take.

      There's one on Craigslist in the free section. It's in rough shape, but the floats look good. Brooklyn Park.

      Smallmouth should be on beds spawning. Good time to fish smallmouth. Fishing off shallow water off rocky islands on East side of Vermilion should be in play. Troll and throw spinners to shore.  Look for line where big rocks end and small rocks/gravel starts.

      We tried pretty hard for them over Memorial Weekend and overall it was slow for us. Never really figured anything out. Beat the banks and some main lake points. Seemed to get fish off the bank just a bit, 6-8fow. We did get some on Topwaters shallow that appeared to push up shallow for the day when the water warmed up 6 degrees.

      Don’t ya love when the weather forecasters are wrong?  S’pose to rain all weekend, but we were blessed with overcast/partly sunny weather.   Over the weekend, we fished around on 3 little lakes (all <200 acres) in Bemidji area (Clearwater county).  One lake was already up to 66 degrees in the middle!  Most vegetation is still low except a few lily pads were just hitting the surface at the shallows; bulrushes are still dried/brown.  With the warmer weather this week, I’ll bet the lakes will start filling out with vegetation in a matter of days and probably be growing fast.   Sunny/crappie bite was nice on Sat; dead on Sunday—had to work to find them though.  (Morning bites were poor--Afternoons much better.  Evening is always good…) (males were staging; females weren’t around yet)  Their location varied between hugging emergent bulrushes to being suspended at ~8 feet in ~15 feet of water.  (the suspended ones weren’t biting, though)  We were using slip bobbers with 1/32 flu flus and nightcrawlers. Found some nice perch hugging the bottom in 7-10 FOW jigging with 1/16 pink/white beetle-bou jigs.   Once sonny boy starting catching northerns casting a shad rap, then princess wanted to catch a nort too; so our fishing trip shifted from casting bobbers to trolling with spoons and the norts were very cooperative—getting 1-2 strikes every time down a simple shoreline of ~100 yds.  Norties were fat and healthy! Princess caught her PB northern!   Hoping to be back fishing around in Stearns and Morrison county (central MN) this weekend and got another getaway planned for next week.  Happy Fishing!

      Just was up at Johnson lake for the last week located right off hwy 38 in Bigfork. Had some slow days but caught a decent amount of Northern and a Walleye. At most, there was only one boat out on the lake at the same time as I was so it’s a nice quiet place.
