Bridgewater says he thinks too much

Bridgewater AP

It must be the Madden.

Vikings rookie quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, who played football video games in the offseason to get “virtual reps,” admits that maybe he’s thinking a bit too much.

“Basically, I have to stop overthinking,” Bridgewater said Thursday, via Mark Craig of the Minneapolis Star Tribune. “I haven’t been pressing, but I have been overthinking.”

Coach Mike Zimmer has been trying to get Bridgewater to think more about not thinking too much.

“He’s got so much going on in his mind right now that I just want him to play,” Zimmer said.  “That’s what I told him [Wednesday], and that’s what I’m going to tell him before the ballgame.  Just go play.  You’ve been doing this since you were five years old. Go play and have some fun.  Throw the ball in there.  If you make a mistake, we’ll fix it and go on.”

For now, Bridgewater thinks they need to get a better fence at training camp.

    Gawd preseason is torturous!

  4. thegreenandcold says: Aug 15, 2014 10:45 AM

    Apparently thinking is too taxing on the young Bridgewater. He just needs to go outside and play, like a child. If only he had some physical child-like attribute that would have let the Vikings know this before drafting him…

    The Biggest Knocks on Teddy Bridgewater:
    1. He had a bad pro day.
    2. He has small hands.
    3. He can’t throw the ball deep.

    Why these knocks are completely wrong:
    1. Jamarcus Russell had one of the best pro days of all time, which ultimately proves why the “Pro Day” is a horrible evaluation of whether a QB will be good in the NFL.
    2. His hand size is actually in the upper echelon of all the current Quarterbacks in the NFL, and larger than Tony Romo’s, Philip Rivers and only 1/8 of an inch smaller than Aaron Rodgers.
    3. His deep balls in OTA’s have already been completely flawless according to Norv Turner and the coaching staff and the only reason they lacked in college because they weren’t his first read, which all the QB’s who throw the deep ball well, have the same exact or even lower % on accuracy of deep balls that isn’t their first read.

    Overall proving, none of you have actual arguments against Teddy Bridgewater except lame insults that have no validity.

    There’s nothing stopping Teddy Bridgewater from being a top QB in this league.

    The Decade of Dominance begins.

    Now.

    Dont worry, being able to think under pressure is not part of the QB job…

    oh wait…

  9. coachkilla6 says: Aug 15, 2014 10:54 AM

    TB looks like a marathon runner, not an NFL QB. There’s just no way he can last in this league. Last place is the Vikings past, present, and future.

    Plus he’s got Minny-Me hands.

  10. jimthebuilder27 says: Aug 15, 2014 10:58 AM

    Sorry Teddy, but once you get that Vikings stench in your system, doing anything is always an uphill battle!

    Not to worry, as former Viking Jared Allen told his Viking teammates, “embrace the suck.”

  11. coldwater32301 says: Aug 15, 2014 10:59 AM

    Like I said before Bridgewater will be the most successful QB out of his rookie class…Indeed…

  12. poorcalvinisstuckonthecrappylions says: Aug 15, 2014 11:02 AM

    @ coldwater32301

    It’s definitely Blake Bortles, Bridgewater has the potential to good, but not the best of this year’s class.

    Sounds like a typical rookie. Except unlike typical rookies, Teddy has immense talent. When everything clicks for him, it is going to be epic.

  15. thepftpoet says: Aug 15, 2014 11:07 AM

    The Minnesota Vikings impending dynasty will hit the NFL by storm, but don’t say you didn’t hear it here first.

    Talent wise, we easily have the best team in the NFL and arguably one of the best teams of all time.

    There’s nothing stopping us this year, multiple super bowls will be coming to Minneapolis with the emergence of Teddy Bridgewater. They are setting themselves up to dominate the NFC for the decade.

    Every team will start trying to emulate the Vikings in every way.
    Every fan will be jealous of Vikings nation.
    Every owner will be jealous they don’t own a historic future dynasty team like the Vikings.
    Every coach will fear traveling to Minneapolis to face this legendary Vikings squad.
    Every other teams players wish they’d have been drafted by the superior Vikings roster.
    Every GM will wish they had the drafting smarts that Rick Spielman has.
    Every blade of grass will wish it would have been grown in the new gorgeous stadium that belongs to Minnesota.

    Flawless? He threw 3 ints in practice.

  19. ragnarthemagnificent says: Aug 15, 2014 11:13 AM

    He’s a nice dude. Vikings are going to be the most improved team this season, fun to watch and possible wild card contenders.

    Vikings are the only well rounded team in the division. Bears without Cutler = Suck. GB without Rogers = Pitiful. Detroit without Stafford = (lets be honest they are bad with Stafford).

  26. dethsupport says: Aug 15, 2014 11:19 AM

    The speed tends to slow down for QBs after a while. Hopefully he sits for a year. Aaron Rodgers sat for 3. Sheesh.

  27. ruvelligwebuike says: Aug 15, 2014 11:19 AM

    One positive thing for Teddy is that he will be playing in front of less people than he did at Louisville, so there won’t be that “big stage” effect on him. Plus, what standard does he have to live up to at TCF Bank Field? The Gophers haven’t even won the Big Ten in over 50 years, let alone a national championship. And the Vikings have never won anything, so they didn’t even have to make room in the trophy case at the shared stadium.

    No real pressure on Ted here. Just don’t go three and out more than three times, or the 48 remaining fans will revert back to watching Gopher hockey and pretending they don’t care about the Vikings because they live in some paradise in their own minds.

  28. whatjusthapped says: Aug 15, 2014 11:21 AM

    Can you still buy the Bridewater jerseys at Target or did they sent them over to Africa along with any remaining Superbowl champs tee shirts they had printed up in the 1970’s?

    He should consult with Ponder, the master of the check down pass. Don’t look downfield, you can’t throw the ball that far anyway, look for the RB in the flat, 4th down is coming soon enough.

  30. iejdaniel says: Aug 15, 2014 11:21 AM

    If he needs advice on how not to overthink, he shouldn’t forget that he can lean on Ponder for advice on how to play without thinking at all.

  31. pervyspankspackfans says: Aug 15, 2014 11:22 AM

    1)Troy Aikman (1989) 11 games; 155-293 for 1749 yards; 9 TD; 18 INT; 55.9 passer rating.
    2)John Elway (1983) 11 games; 123-259 for 1663 yards; 7 TD; 14 INT; 54.9 passer rating
    3)Steve Young (1986) 14 games; 195-363 for 2282 yards; 8 TD; 13 INT; 65.5 passer rating.
    4)Jim Kelly (1986) 16 games; 285-480 for 3593 yards; 22 TD; 17 INT; 83.3 passer rating.
    5)Peyton Manning (1998) 16 games; 326-575 for 3739 yards; 26 TD; 28 INT (ouch!); 71.2 passer rating.
    6)Drew Brees (2002) 16 games; 320-526 for 3284 yards; 17 TD; 16 INT; 76.9 passer rating.

    A sample of some HOF and future HOF QB’s first season stats. Qb’s must grow into it,sure they threw plenty in practice also.Turners offense is complicated. Zimmers defense is aggressive and tricky to play against. All this panic right now is a total lack of football IQ…let it take its course and judge in a couple years….

  32. jayhawk777 says: Aug 15, 2014 11:23 AM

  36. VickyMendozaDiagonal says: Aug 15, 2014 11:25 AM

    He is saying all of the right things in interviews and doing all of the right things on the field. Teddy is going to be a super star and I cannot wait to see him in action. Our future is bright and the possibilities are endless. This season is going to be the beginning of our decade of dominance.

    Book it.

  43. jayhawk777 says: Aug 15, 2014 11:33 AM

    Pervy,

    fans said the same thing about Ponder. He was a bust. You said wait a couple of seasons. We waited. Ponder is still a bust.

    Bustwater is a small hand bust. We’ll wait a cpl of seasons and he’ll still be a bust.

    Spielman needs to be fired or not allow him to draft QB’s.

    When are teams going to learn that 98% of these types of qb’s are no good. But they keep drafting them and hoping. All they know is run. Just say’n.

  50. tokyosandblaster says: Aug 15, 2014 11:55 AM

    Let’s face it:

    Spielman has made two “good” draft picks–and that’s by comparison, mind you.

    Matt “oft injured” Kalil and a kicker.

    A KICKER.

    Last year’s amazing first round features a poor man’s Devin Hester, a tiny armed defensive lineman that was outperformed by the Packers first rounder (who played half as many reps), and a cornerback who was out of position on basically every down.

    There’s a reason the Vikings had the worst defense in football. And that reason is that Rick Spielman is a terrible, terrible GM.

    Facts are facts.

  51. codythao35 says: Aug 15, 2014 11:56 AM

    All you people who doubt Bridgewater will swallow your own crap bc 3-5 years from now he is going to be one of the best.
    Buyers beware of good preseason games. Just look at Brandon Weeden preseason stats last year. It doesn’t really tell how good you are until you play the regular games. Bortle? Maybe he’ll be good but not great in regular season games.

    Bridgewater>all busted Packers roster.

  52. longtimefanhtr says: Aug 15, 2014 12:00 PM

  57. Commenting off the bench. . . says: Aug 15, 2014 12:27 PM

    So Manziel, with his photographic memory, can look over his playbook once and can memorize every page of it, gets knocked for not “always having his head in the playbook”, while Bridgewater who “always has his head in his playbook” can’t seem to remember what’s in it.
    .
    Neither a Browns or a Vikings fan, just an observation.

  58. snowlock2013 says: Aug 15, 2014 12:27 PM

    It always scares me when athletes, not known for their brilliance anyway, start to say they think to much. What else would you call reading a defense?

    I get they’re supposed to train to the point where their reactions are basically instinctive, but stop saying you should stop thinking, because if you say that, you obviously already aren’t.

  59. thebirdofprey2 says: Aug 15, 2014 12:35 PM

    Some Viking fans need to get with reality, this guy is the last pick of the first round as a QB. Other than Aaron Rogers I can think of 10 in the late first round that aren’t even in NFL anymore.

    Watching him verus 2 and 3’s the guy looks unsure of even checkdowns, the throws don’t look crisp at all. Maybe he has potential but doesn’t look anywhere close to Manziel or Bortles right now. I mean Cassell is going to probably beat him out easliy, that’s not good.

  60. misterseahawk says: Aug 15, 2014 12:37 PM

  61. ariani1985 says: Aug 15, 2014 12:50 PM

As a young Rook, he doesn’t stare down his receiver , nor does he get happy feet! He stays in the pocket , steps up and goes through his progressions. If anything he needs to speed up his process! I have 100% faith in this kid. He will be a top tier QB in the NFL. I think he should spend a year learning. I think all rookies should. It is how it was designed to be in years past! Skol

    Teddy and all rookie QB’s need to sit at least a season to be given a chance to reach their full potential. Teddy is a stud, and patience is a virtue.

    Get your reps in during the pre-season and mop up/gargbae time of the ’14-’15 campaign. Anything north of 8-8 will be a success for this years Vikes anyway. Then WATCH OUT…. NFC North be scared!!!!!

    ——————————————-
    Statisticians had him at over 70% completion ratio under pressure. Not saying he’s ready yet to start for the pros but that’s a pretty telling stat. He’s a rookie and many of them tend to over think at first. It’s not that uncommon.

  77. skolvikes28allday says: Aug 15, 2014 2:43 PM

    TB2 is leaps and bounds ahead of that piece of crap.

    And later on…
    Rodgers first year as a starter…
    In 2008, Rodgers quickly proved that he was one of the best quarterbacks in the league by passing for over 4,000 yards in his first season as a starter as well as throwing for 28 touchdowns and only 13 interceptions (currently his career high). With Rodgers making his debut as a starter, the Packers beat the Minnesota Vikings 24–19 at Lambeau Field. This marked the first time since 1992 that a quarterback other than Favre started a regular-season game for the Packers. Rodgers ended the game with 178 yards passing and two touchdowns (one passing and one rushing). In just his second NFL start the following week, Rodgers was voted the FedEx Air award winner after passing for 328 yards and three touchdowns in a win against the Detroit Lions.

    As far as “tiny hands” he is having problems because of his low wonderlic scores much like the Einstein Patterson. So far every young qb that was drafted near the top has made favorable impressions except bridgewater. I wonder how many posters are saying oh not again?

    Enough with the stalking Mecca. You give us TRUE PACK FANS a bad name. Stick to commenting on articles about Rogers and Lacy. Show some class. SMH.

    GO PACK

    Why don’t Vikes fans include Rodgers 1st year starting stats when showing what Teddy is up against? 4038 yards, 28 TDs, 13 picks and a 93.8 QB ranking…… Oh, never mind, I get it…..

    BTW, 2008 was his only year with a rating below 100……

  91. snowlock2013 says: Aug 15, 2014 3:31 PM

    Russel Wilson, the 21st Century’s Trent Dilfer.

  92. cribbage12 says: Aug 15, 2014 3:34 PM

    Bridgewater – U of Louisville
    Rodgers – U of California

    Shanghai academic ranking of world universities: Louisville, 400 out of 500. Cal, 4 out of 500. Which QB is a better thinker? Hmmmmm.

  93. fwippel says: Aug 15, 2014 3:40 PM

    Good grief, give the guy a break. His first training camp, one preseason game, and already the self-appointed experts are calling him a bust. Seriously?

    Get some perspective.

    I understand the cross border, div. rivalry, etc. but Packer fans (that post on PFT) seem obsessed with the Vikings.

    Seriously Packer fans . . . fear?. . . envy? . . . how do YOU explain it?

    Russell Wilson (2012) 16 games; 252-393 for 3118 yards; 26 TD; 10 INT; 64.1 passer rating. Future Hall of Famer.

    Go Hawks!

  97. pfu2 says: Aug 15, 2014 4:05 PM

    He wouldn’t have to think so hard if his wonderlic was higher. He scored 20, Manziel by the way doesn’t have to think quite as hard as he scored a 32!

    Mark Twain said there are lies, there are damn lies, and then there are statistics.

    There are also morons declaring a guy a bust who hasn’t even played a regular season game. I think I’ll go with the statistics.

    ————-

    There were also morons who said he was doing fantastic when his coach wasn’t even saying it plus he hadn’t even seen a real defense up to that point!

    Easy explanation… I for one am tired of reading comments from Vikings Troll fans PFTPoet and Aria Grande… teenae girl singer 1985, or what her name is on Packer threads… I guess it is pay back. muzzle your teenage mutant turtles and most Packer fans will go away.

  105. mediasloppy says: Aug 15, 2014 8:07 PM

    Are you kidding me. Over 100 comments on a simple article that would get like 30 comments on any other team. This is becoming pathetic. And it’s all the same stupid insults. Just quit posting Vikings articles as they have become nothing but fodder for trolls.

  106. unmercifulone says: Aug 15, 2014 8:29 PM

    I see the 15 y/o yellow and puke green toads think they’re being funny again.

  107. unmercifulone says: Aug 15, 2014 8:31 PM

    I know why the yellow and puke green toads spam the Vikings boards… there AREN’T any for the pack. Nobody cares about a team that sliding down the ‘past their prime’ hill like they’re on ice.

    In other news, the Vikings still have no championships and there is no chance to see one for their pathetic fan base in their lifetime. Zero LOMBARDIS, zero class fans. Geaux Saints!

    DUH, because his 1st year stats are from this 3rd year in the league. Apples to apples means you have to wait ’till 2017 for Teddy.

  113. banlarson says: Aug 16, 2014 1:42 PM

    Teddy showed me all he needed to on his first NFL throw. He rolled right and threw a laser 25 yards down field, perfectly to Jennings. He also proved more elusive in the pocket than Ponder, so given that Ponder could get this team to the playoffs, I have no doubt with our improved defense and WRs, better schemes and coaching, Teddy will get us there and beyond. I’m glad the Vikings are at the start of something special, GB is at the end is one player away from pitiful.

    Also, I’m pretty sure there are two people with about twenty accounts each on this site: one is a Vikings troll and one is a packers troll. Please go away.
