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.
