Teddy Bridgewater says he grew the most as a leader in 2015

Zz03NTJmZWI5YzU2OGQ1NTE0OWJlZjYyY2NkNDI2NzgxOQ== AP

Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater appeared on Wednesday’s Pro Football Talk on NBCSN, where he reflected on a sophomore season that culminated in a playoff berth.

Bridgewater said that, of all the ways he grew in year two, he grew the most as a leader.

He said plenty of other good stuff about the 2015 season during his visit to the show. You can see and hear it all below by clicking the thing in the thing.

    Can’t really say he grew as a QB.

  2. vikingjack73 says: Feb 3, 2016 9:21 PM

    Happy to have Teddy B as the Vikes QB
    Just wish he had the arm strength of Carr, taken just a few spots later

    But he makes fewer mistakes
    If MN can shore up the O-Line & bring in a consistent deep threat (either draft or FA), Vikes could be dangerous again in 2016

    Especially half their schedule will be against AFC South & NFC South (minus Carolina, of course)

    Plus 2 games vs a rebuilding Bears team & 2 vs Detroit who may be without Megatron

    Tiny hands Bustwater

  4. FecalFreak69 says: Feb 3, 2016 9:38 PM

    Certainly had to be more than he grew as a Passer. How the hell did he get into Pro Bowl anyway? But all next season he’ll be referred to as ” Pro Bowler, Teddy Bridgewater” . That in itself should end the joke that is The Pro Bowl .

  5. housemusic1200 says: Feb 3, 2016 9:46 PM

    Packer trolls in 3….2….1.

  6. purpleandgoldforever says: Feb 3, 2016 9:48 PM

    Two years ago I said the Vikings would be the first team to host, play AND win the Super Bowl.

    Well ahead of that schedule!

    Cue the Packer trolls in 3 ….. 2 ….. 1

  7. 1pavikingfan says: Feb 3, 2016 9:50 PM

    Proud to have you as our leader Teddy!!!

  8. js36js36 says: Feb 3, 2016 9:52 PM

    Well after 3200 yards, 14 TD’s and 9 INT’s, you gotta find a silver lining somewhere…

  9. staffordsyear says: Feb 3, 2016 9:53 PM

    Maybe his throws will grow more than 5 yards.

  10. icebowler says: Feb 3, 2016 9:54 PM

    Exactly. The sooner he gets into coaching the better off he will be.

  11. Teddy BH20's House of Noodles says: Feb 3, 2016 9:56 PM

    It’s just too bad that his limited athleticism and arm strength didn’t grow at all. But the leadership will come in hand when he’s backing up Russell Wilson in 2 years.

  12. golforepar says: Feb 3, 2016 10:05 PM

    “Baby hands” Bridgewater really looks good as long as he has a great RB. He looks like a leader as long as AP stays healthy.

  13. purpleguy says: Feb 3, 2016 10:17 PM

    Patiently waiting for the cheeser cracks about the need for Teddy’s hands to grow first. . . . . .

  14. coachkilla6 says: Feb 3, 2016 10:32 PM

    Real leaders don’t have to convince everybody else that they’re a leader. It should speak for itself.

    The fact is that Bridgewater is a bottom-10 QB in the NFL. That is undeniable. Did you see his Pro Bowl performance? It was laughable. His strategy seems to be to throw the ball up for grabs and hope one of his receivers comes down with it. He’s had one good game in his two-year career. One. I only hope that the Viking’s organization is as dumb as I know they are and they drop a (Love)boatload amount of salary cap at his feet.

    Being a likeable guy doesn’t make you a better player. TB flat out stinks.

  15. torchamundo says: Feb 3, 2016 10:47 PM

    As a Vikings fan, he makes me hate life.

  16. bangreggwilliams says: Feb 3, 2016 10:51 PM

    Teddy’s full quote: “I grew most as a leader in my second year, but, just like my first year, my hands didn’t grow.”

  17. jcphitman says: Feb 3, 2016 10:58 PM

    I have faith that Teddy will have a very solid 2016. Skol Vikings!

  18. irishjugalo says: Feb 3, 2016 11:03 PM

    This would be good news if you meant vertically.

  19. powersnatch0102 says: Feb 3, 2016 11:10 PM

    Bridgewater trending. Rodgers declining. The circle of life.

  20. In Teddy We Trust says: Feb 3, 2016 11:11 PM

    From what I hear, Teddy is one of the most loved players on the team. Don’t underestimate the importance of leadership in a quarterback.

    He is going to take a big leap next year as a passer if they change the offense to be less predictable and take advantage of Teddy’s skills and upgrade the offensive line.

  21. dclogicatlast says: Feb 3, 2016 11:11 PM

    Well that’s because he didn’t grow as a passer. Bridgewater’s maximum ceiling is Alex Smith.

  22. diveleft says: Feb 3, 2016 11:59 PM

    That’s great, but next year he better “grow” on his down field throwing accuracy.

  23. minnescrotums says: Feb 4, 2016 12:29 AM

    That’s so cute.

    Almost like Vikings fans thinking this season was the norm, and not a fluke.

    Enjoy 2nd place next year, ladies. The Packers proved they were better by going farther in the Playoffs yet again.

  24. numba1wiscosportsfan says: Feb 4, 2016 12:35 AM

    Good player. Think he’ll be a thorn in our side for years to come though! Go pack!!

  25. jbvikes says: Feb 4, 2016 12:45 AM

    Let’s get this guy some protection for ’16! Gotta look for a free agent O lineman!

  26. ta3formforged says: Feb 4, 2016 12:47 AM

    Skol!!

  27. shaggytoodle says: Feb 4, 2016 12:50 AM

    He didn’t grow as a QB though, and thats what the Vikings needed most, he had what many consider a “Sophmore Slump” I think it could have been avoided if coaches had put their feet down and demanded Peterson play within the NEW Vikings system which much of was installed while he was on the Exempt list, or use the other option and get traded, because Asiata and McKinnon could have helped Teddy get the Vikings to Wild Card weekend as well.

  28. stiffarm13 says: Feb 4, 2016 12:52 AM

    Leader ? of what ? guess he did lead one of the NFL’s worst offenses …. otherwise this clown didn’t lead a thing

  29. nflinsider711 says: Feb 4, 2016 1:17 AM

    The thing I hate about Bridgewater is that folks never talk about his sorry play. How did he make pro bowl? I have seen quarterbacks miss half the season and outproduce this kid. His young developing QB act will grow old soon.

  30. tdubdizzle says: Feb 4, 2016 3:40 AM

    Imagine if the Vikings had Derek Carr last year instead….

    Teddy Bridgewater is just not a Franchise Qb. He will be exposed next year.

  31. irishgary says: Feb 4, 2016 5:00 AM

    Hahahaha hahahaha
    31st ranked passing offense. That’s some growth

  32. funshipm174 says: Feb 4, 2016 6:05 AM

    SKOL!

  33. vikingforlife says: Feb 4, 2016 6:56 AM

    He will lead his team to a championship.

  34. bluewinger says: Feb 4, 2016 7:02 AM

    Go Teddy!

  35. thegreenandcold says: Feb 4, 2016 7:54 AM

    Of course he felt he grew most as a leader, he didn’t grow as a football player at all and he had to pick something.

  36. greenbaylibrarybreathalyzer says: Feb 4, 2016 7:54 AM

    The ascention continues.

  37. streetyson says: Feb 4, 2016 8:33 AM

    Hey Cam, is it just because Teddy’s a black QB that people quite like him?

  38. vikingferd says: Feb 4, 2016 8:45 AM

    I agree…..the Vikes FINALLY have their franchise QB. This kid will surpass Aaron Rodgers next year. If Turner and Zimmer turn him loose a bit more, he could have 3500 yards and 30 TDs.

  39. unmercifulone says: Feb 4, 2016 8:56 AM

    Looking forward to seeing how Teddy will improve in 2016.

  40. ariani1985 says: Feb 4, 2016 9:18 AM

    and our little sisters to the east has a QB who only cares about the red carpet and looking for a flag on every pass attempt. Notice that we leapfrogged you and your window is now shut!!!

  41. Adrian Beathisson says: Feb 4, 2016 9:30 AM

    But those tiny hands haven’t grown at all.

  42. zerotrophiessince1961 says: Feb 4, 2016 9:31 AM

    Sure… he grew as a leader, but he’s still a below average QB with a low ceiling.

    It’s going to be fun watching the Vikings decline start as soon as they finally got decent as their ONLY good offensive player starts firmly marching over the hill.

    Yeah I know sisters to the west, truth hurts.

  43. Calikid says: Feb 4, 2016 9:45 AM

    His hands are still small,no growth there.

  44. scrapedogg says: Feb 4, 2016 9:45 AM

    I thought it was his deep ball placement.

  45. summitmech says: Feb 4, 2016 9:46 AM

    Theres no need for trolling here. I just wanted to say Ive never seen this long of an interview with Teddy, and I gotta say Im pretty relieved to see he seems to be every bit as intelligent as you see articles and reports state. The guy has an aire about him. He has intelligent, interesting responses here, at least more unique than the average football player in an interview. I got the feeling he could end up a host or analyst for a network after his career. I really do feel we can trust him to develop into a great quarterback. Looking so forward to next season!

  46. cyclonepower says: Feb 4, 2016 9:53 AM

    Ha ha ha! You are hilarious! Below average? How about led the league in completion percentage.
    Over the hill? How about ARod imploding this year.
    How about a top 5 defensive?

    Truth hurts – to our little sisters in the east.

    Laughable as you grasp on to any hope as your team declines rapidly.

    Skol!

  47. housemusic1200 says: Feb 4, 2016 9:56 AM

    The kid only continues to get better, and it scares our little sisters to the east. Very impressive for a QB that didn’t have the luxury of sitting behind a HOF QB for 5 years.

  48. 15YearsandBradyStillRunsYourTeam says: Feb 4, 2016 10:04 AM

    Nothing overly impressive with Teddy game. Good game manager, that’s it.

  49. Probowler Teddy Bridgewater says: Feb 4, 2016 10:18 AM

    Really? How big are your hands? Mine are 8 3/4 which are smaller than Bridgewater’s and I never had a problem gripping or throwing a regular size NFL football. By the way, Rodgers hands are a mere 1/8″ larger than Teddy’s. Not much of a difference now is it?

  51. secretbonus1 says: Feb 4, 2016 10:22 AM

    There once was a great QB in development. One day, trolls and gnomes came along and tried to sabotage the confidence in the great QB. They all lived miserable lifes in grandmas basement while Teddy and vikings fans lived happily ever after.

    The trolls and gnomes are small but bark loud… Like the chihuahua dog… Only, they get less action.

    To be continued?

  52. wafflestomp says: Feb 4, 2016 10:26 AM

    To call Teddy Bridgewater dull and tasteless is an insult to rice cakes all over the world.

    In other news: during a speech last night, Bernie Sanders made a pledge that if he were elected President he would see to it that at least one of the Lombardi trophies would be removed from Green Bay and given to the Minnesota Vikings.
    As he put it, “It’s only fair in a civilized society.”

    wow, you have never had trouble throwing an NFL football. how many starts have you had. try throwing that football with peppers or Matthews chasing you

  54. whatjusthapped says: Feb 4, 2016 10:36 AM

    Usually leaders are recognized by their peers, they don’t feel the need to make the claim themselves.

    Exactly what did he lead? An underperforming offense, I will give him that. He should learn to be more humble, sort of like Blair Walsh.

  55. linemanguy74 says: Feb 4, 2016 10:47 AM

    2nd yr.division champs,in his 2nd yr.Rogers was still picking splinters out his a##

  56. atthemurph says: Feb 4, 2016 11:03 AM

    Being a leader if fine but you still have to be an NFL quarterback. He’s just too limited and doesn’t have an NFL arm. To compound that he doesn’t have an NFL throwing motion either.

    It’s going to be tough for the kid to make a great leap as a passer unless he can fix that motion. He can get the arm stronger but the toss from his hip? Ain’t going to last.

  57. wafflestomp says: Feb 4, 2016 11:13 AM

    Teddy Bridgewater grew as a leader last year?
    Well, he did lead his offense to 14 Tds against 9 picks and a stunning 31st ranked passing attack. (Yet, Rodgers imploded by posting 31 Tds/8 Ints, 3,800 yds. Viking logic, I guess.)
    Are you sure Matt Cassel couldn’t have improved on those passing numbers, thus elevating that neutral offense?

    At least he led the team to a temporary division title.
    Along the way he finally notched his first win over a .500 or better team.
    In fact, he did it 3 times last year, one against Green Bay. Impressive. That raises his and Zimmer’s overall totals to 3-14 against teams that had a .500 record or better.
    Before you know it he’ll be beating good teams as regular as Adrian Peterson beats his children.
    Though, I for one, doubt it.

  58. In Teddy We Trust says: Feb 4, 2016 11:25 AM

    How dumb do you have to be to state what a quarterback’s ceiling is after his second year? I think he would have had a much better season this year if the offense he had been practicing his entire rookie year and all offseason hadn’t been completely changed after the season’s first game. I think this was essentially a lost season in terms of Teddy’s development. It’s tough to put up big numbers when pass plays are only called on third and long.

    The good news is that Zim knows that things have to change and developing Teddy is the key to long-term success. The offensive line will be fixed, Adrian Peterson is going to learn to take a back seat to Teddy, and Norv is going to mix in a pass on first down once in a while.

  59. jrsamps says: Feb 4, 2016 11:31 AM

    I wish that arm would grown, my 9 year old has a bigger bicep and SHE plays with Barbie dolls.

  60. nflgtcfl says: Feb 4, 2016 11:34 AM

    What do you expect? The team is run heavy for their ball demanding superstar. I am a fan of AP (The player, not the person), but he needs to realize that some games/moments he needs to take a backseat.

    In terms of the deep ball … who is teddy supposed to be throwing confidently to?

    It is not from lack of effort on the GMs part.

    Mike Wallace is a shell of what he was in PIT. I still can’t believe there was a huge discussion on whether to keep him or Brown.

    Coradell Patterson is a great special teams guy, apart from high stepping it to the end zone near the end of a blowout loss. As a receiver he can’t run routes, and overall seems pretty dim in terms of grasping the playbook.

    Teddy can’t change trash into gold. Draft O-Line first round and pick up some deep threat receivers in 3-6th round

  61. stellarperformance says: Feb 4, 2016 11:49 AM

    Peterson actually had this to say about his quarterback:

    “I’ve seen a guy that doesn’t lack leadership or the ability to take control. Even last year. He’s building the confidence. It’s his team and he has to be the leader. He’s displaying it a lot. He displayed it last year. I like what I’m seeing.”

    Sound familiar? It should. He was talking about Ponder.

    ——————
    That “system” got them to 6-9 in 2014, and started with 2-2 in 2015. Then, they switched to a run heavy offense and stout defense, and finished 9-3, with a division Championship.

    Perhaps it’s time anonymous posters stop telling Coach Zim and Norv what works best for this team. They seem to have done just fine without our opinions.

  63. mediasloppy says: Feb 4, 2016 11:54 AM

    Packer ‘trolls’ should be happy they have a good QB and once again one of the easiest schedules next season, plus Jordy Nelson returning. Still, they have to rant and insult their way to happiness. Sad.

    Perhaps the NFL will take your whining into consideration, and start awarding team wins and losses according to QB personal stats.

    Until then, your team finished in 2nd place, so learn to live with that disappointment.

  66. tritz32 says: Feb 4, 2016 12:07 PM

    Aaron Rodgers just had the worst year of his career. I’d bet my 401k Teddy’s best year of his career won’t be better than Rodgers worst. That’s all that needs to be said.

    I’d be willing to bet that his hands are bigger than yours. It’s just sad when fudge packers like yourself have nothing better to do during an off-season where your team is falling apart and The Vikings are on the rise! Get use to that feeling trolls! We are NFC North Champs and you have to beat us now to get it back, which is not going to happen for a while.

  68. thepunkyqb says: Feb 4, 2016 12:31 PM

    I love how all the Vikes fans are hanging onto his coattails, yet he has stats that absolutely mirror or are if not worse than Ponders, whom they absolutely abhorred. Someone not from MN, please explain this to me.

    That may or may not be true but it doesn’t mean he’s a bad QB either way. Rodgers is one of the best in the game (great year or what some to perceive as a down year). If he leads the Vikings to victories, that is all that matters to me. Stats are just stats.

    To answer your ridiculous question I have zero NFL starts but that’s not my point. My point is that if I don’t have an issue gripping the ball then Teddy shouldn’t have an issue especially when the size of his hands are very similar to the size as Rodgers’ hands who is considered one of the best in the game.

    Now to your next statement. Are you sayi8ng that his hands have to be larger just because it’s Peppers and Matthews chasing him? He doesn’t need to grip the ball the same regardless of who it is? If he was being rushed by the worst pass rusher in the league would he have to have larger hands to grip it any differently?

  71. Frazier28/7 says: Feb 4, 2016 1:17 PM

    crow and troll all you want cheesers… and yet he still guided his team to one more victory then aaron rodgers and the green bay packers despite 16 fewer TD passes while being the starting quarterback for the nfc north division champions

  72. minnescrotums says: Feb 4, 2016 1:43 PM

    Guess I don’t understand how NFC north division championships only have merit when the Vikings win them.

  73. purplepackerhater says: Feb 4, 2016 4:00 PM

    They have a lot of merit, the Vikings and Chicago both have more NFC north division championships than GB, packer fans just don’t ignore that act when they talk about the past.

    We didn’t turn on Ponder until he regressed in his third year. If TB regresses this year, we will have to look for another QB, but that won’t happen.

  74. h0metownzero says: Feb 4, 2016 6:31 PM

    Bruce Irvin of the Seahawks basically called little Teddy a coward after the first time they humiliated them, and not one of his Viking teammates stood behind him.

    I guess that’s a sign of great leadership in MN.

  75. vikingforlife says: Feb 4, 2016 7:10 PM

    Bruce Irvin said he “thought Teddy looked scared” that is completely different than calling him a coward. Get your facts straight before posting. How do you know none of his teammates stood behind him? It truly scares the fan bases of certain teams how well our Vikings get along, doesn’t it? These guys are building something unbelievably special and you guys just can’t stand it, so you make fun of the most ridiculous things.

  76. vikingforlife says: Feb 4, 2016 7:13 PM

    Before you reply to that post and making fun of Teddy ONCE again, remember what Aaron Rodgers said a few weeks back about being frightened… people in glass houses….

    Interesting. Since the inception of the NFC North, the current division, who has won it the most? Is it the Packers, by more than double the next best team?

    Wait, I bet you want to go back a lot longer and include stuff from a long, long time ago.

    Yet you complain when Packers fans do that.

    Going further in the playoffs doesn’t mean you’re a better team. Doesn’t mean anything really unless you win the super bowl.

    You see folks, just another example of a packer fan grasping at straws to feel that they are better at something, anything, than the Vikings.

    Hey, Contra/Teddy/Conor/Gto/GenExJay

    The Packers have won the current division half the time. Meaning that the other three teams combined aren’t better than the Packers at winning the NFC North.

    That’s what we call order.

    Fall in.

    Hilarious. It’s so mind numbing trying to reason with a packer fan.

    They can’t stand when someone has the upper hand on them.

    Vikings have always owned their division over the packers.

    Always have, always will.

    However isn’t it convenient when packer fans shift timelines to their advantage. Ok I’ll play – since December 2015, the Vikings are undefeated against the packers.

    There…I just resorted to thinking like a packer fan.

    He didn’t grow as a QB though, and thats what the Vikings needed most, he had what many consider a “Sophmore Slump” I think it could have been avoided if coaches had put their feet down and demanded Peterson play within the NEW Vikings system which much of was installed while he was on the Exempt list, or use the other option and get traded, because Asiata and McKinnon could have helped Teddy get the Vikings to Wild Card weekend as well.

    What?

    That’s funny….I thought to play in wild card weekend (which the Vikings did) meant you were actually already there, and you didn’t need to “get the Vikings to wild card weekend”

    Additionally, the Vikings didn’t need a qb most. Bridgewater helped that team to a 10 – 6 record. Which was good enough to win the division.
    What they needed most, was a kicker to hit a 27 yard FG, to win the game.

    Bridgewater completed almost 70% of his passes. Alright the majority of those passes were short passes, and screen passes. But, when you are the most pressured passer in the NFL, which Bridgewater was in 2015, then yeah I think throwing short passes is key. It is better than the alternative….which is taking a sack, or worse yet, an int. This shows his ability to have pocket presence, and to make a play on the fly.

    He needs an offensive line, to give him time to stay in the pocket, and make a pass.

    Haha,

    Here’s a Vikings fans logic.

    Packers fans can’t celebrate old championships, because it was so long ago.

    But we can celebrate Division championships prior to the current division, even though it was so long ago, because it’s literally the only way we can pretend to be relevant.

And don’t worry about the SB it’s on it’s way, and it SCARES the crap out of all of you! The Vikings season was not a fluke as demonstrated by the increase in wins from the 2014 season. You see, it is so difficult for the small minded to wrap their teeny tiny little brains around the fact that the Vikings are getting better, while the rest of the NFC North are just floundering.

    5) Minnesota Vikings

    Minnesota had some bad losses, including the opener (to the 49ers) and, of course, the wild-card heartbreaker to the Seahawks. But the Vikings are an ascendant team. The defense, which ranked fifth in points allowed, is powered by several good, young players, like Everson Griffen, Harrison Smith, Anthony Barr, Eric Kendricks, Linval Joseph and Danielle Hunter. Hunter is a gem who picked up six sacks and really came on at the end of the year. Teddy Bridgewater improved quite a bit in his second pro season; I think the hard-working quarterback can keep getting better under coordinator Norv Turner. And, of course, there’s running back Adrian Peterson, who showed he’s still got it at 30. Peterson led the NFL in rushing despite working behind a so-so line, and I think he’s got a great chance to do it again next year.

    The Vikings are by no means perfect — they need to add some speed at receiver (Mike Wallace is fast, but he’s not the answer), and Bridgewater has room to grow. But it looks like the Packers are a bit of a descending team, making the NFC North more of an open division than it’s been in some time. Plus, playing in a brand-new stadium should provide a boost. Minnesota is simply trending in the right direction for long-term success.

    ==================================
    Gil Brandt did an article in May about how the Panthers and the Broncos were two of the three most vulnerable division champions.

    Gil Brandt had Johnny Manziel number 1 on his draft board.

    He said the Jaguars (3-13) had playoff potential in 2014.

    Those are just a few gems from Gil Brandt. There’s plenty more.

    There’s a reason why he writes for NFL.com rather than working for an organization anymore.

    Frank B the fake Bears fan that upset because someone wrote the truth about the packers. Their window is closing. He should have mentioned the fake superstar Fabio goes two weeks without a tackle and none of the packer fans question it. They should have taken Kendricks when they had the chance. They do that and they could have put Fabio back where he can be of some use. A pass rusher. That is all he can do. Delta 2 poster boy.

  99. frank booth says: Feb 6, 2016 10:28 PM

    I was commenting on Gil Brandt and the nature of his predictions. Read much?

    His assessment had more to do with the Vikings than the Packers? That would be clear to most people.

    It’s humorous to me that you can’t figure out that because I dislike the Vikings, it doesn’t make me a Packer fan. But it’s clearly very important to you that you believe that I’m not a Bears’ fan.

    Their are other fans that besides Packer fans that dislike the Vikings. You should appreciate that- for most, the Vikings and their fans are summarily dismissed, and given little respect.

    I never said a single thing about the Chiefs being NFL champions.

    Irvin mouthed off after beating a depleted Vikings team in the first game. But who was scared in the second game? The whole Seahawks team. No questioning that their reaction to the missed kick showed that very clearly. Also he didn’t say it again after the second game for a reason.

    Wrong again Fake Bears fan, you are a packer fan. And like other packer fans you can’t stand that the Vikings have a NFL Championship in 1969 . Too bad deal with it, there is no kind of like anything you described. No Vikings fans have ever said they were World champs or Super bowl champs. But the fact is they were NFL champs. And you saying otherwise just doesn’t matter. Your denial is tedious packer fan.

    Fellow Viking fans like to point out how he doesn’t turn the ball over but he also fails to lead them to TDs. He is a backup in the league and nothing more. The Vikings should continue to draft QBs but Spielman will never let TBW go because he will then be the GM who missed on 2 QBs with 1st round picks. Just like Kalil, he’s not going to get rid of him after wasting the 4th pick of the draft on him. Will be interesting to see how much they end up paying him for next year. He’s at 11 mill on the books, he won’t get that but he’s going to get a number that isn’t even close to as little as he deserves based on his rank for the position. And it all comes down to Spielman trying to camouflage his lousy picks. The only reason our picks have improved recently is that Zimmer has been involved on the defensive ones. Otherwise Spielman would be out there whiffing on most of the picks or making big trades to get guys like C Patterson – did they even interview that guy? I mean if you listen to him you can tell that bulb is a 25 watt one at best
