Rick Spielman “very excited” about Teddy Bridgewater heading into third year

Vikings General Manager Rick Spielman was a guest on PFT Live Thursday morning and one of the main topics of conversation was quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.

Spielman said he’s “very excited” about what the team will see from Bridgewater in 2016. That will be his third year with the Vikings and Spielman said that he’s seen “significant jumps” from other quarterbacks when they reach that point in their careers. Spielman pointed to additions to the offensive coaching staff and the way the offense played in the final weeks of the regular season as reasons for the optimism. 

He also touched on the move indoors as the Vikings take possession of their new stadium for 2016. During an appearance on Pro Football Talk on NBCSN from the Super Bowl last week, Bridgewater said he was looking forward to the move and Spielman feels the same although he adds the caveat that the quarterback will still need to be successful when playing in the elements.

“If you look at Teddy’s stats and how he performed when we were indoors –when we were in Detroit, even out at Arizona, some of those ideal conditions — we feel he’s going to even take another step forward,” Spielman said. “He still has to be able play outdoors. We still have to go to Chicago, we have to go to Green Bay every year.”

    So are all the other teams that can mark their game against Bridgewater/Vikes as a “W”.

    Bridgewater sucks..i wouldnt call him overrated because everyone knows he sucks except for the viqueen fans

  3. buckybadger says: Feb 11, 2016 2:03 PM

    As a Packer fan I am excited that Minnesota is excited about a QB that can’t throw the ball accurately past 10 yds. Can’t wait until they fire another good coach (this time possibly great coach) because Teddy isn’t progressing and the team doesn’t get any better.

    Sorry Vikings fans but this kid doesn’t have it. His throwing motion is awful, he isn’t accurate and struggles to get the ball downfield. Vote me down, in two years they will be looking for a QB again.

    I guess with one of the lowest ranked passing attacks in the league in 2015, you have to say things like that….

    Hard to do worse than 14 tds vs 9 int’s…..

  7. getsome636 says: Feb 11, 2016 2:20 PM

    Well he was 22nd in rating and yards and 26th in TDs. So, I guess even if he took a big step, he would still be like 15th. LOL, what a joke.

  8. youngs79 says: Feb 11, 2016 2:20 PM

    Funny, he won more games than any other QB in the division and won the division. Eleven wins is greater than five losses.>Packer fans are not too bright.

  9. f1restarter says: Feb 11, 2016 2:21 PM

    It’s no surprise that Bridgewater is looking forward to moving indoors this year.

    Real football is played outside under the open sky. Real fans wouldn’t have it any other way.

    But the Vikings were smart to build an indoor stadium. They know that neither their fans nor their franchise QB have the inner fortitude to be outside in football weather. It’s simply too hard for them.

    For those in Minnesota who want to see genuine football as it’s supposed to be, allow me to direct your attention to the east – to a city synonymous with winning football. It’s known as “Titletown”.

  10. squeakywheeler says: Feb 11, 2016 2:22 PM

    Problem is, he’s going to need 3 new wr’s, (Diggs is ok), a very good te, and another solid o-lineman before you can REALLY find out about this guy. otherwise he’ll continue to be “just a guy”. That’s just the hard truth of the matter. I’m tired of hearing he’s the answer when he hasn’t done anything. At the same time i’ll be fair with my assessment ’til he gets something other than a solid rb around him.

    Not sure Spielman coming out saying Teddy is a good “indoor” qb is a ringing endorsement or smart. Spielman has been around long enough to know you don’t say that. “When conditions are perfect I like my guy”…. Geeeeez

  11. credible316 says: Feb 11, 2016 2:23 PM

    Please address him as Pro Bowl Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, thank you…

  12. thejuddstir says: Feb 11, 2016 2:25 PM

    Indoors isn’t going to make his hands any bigger, his arm any stronger and his awareness any better. It might give him an uptick in accuracy as he should be able to progress from a check down pass to perhaps a 10 yd. pass. What else would you expect Speilman to say, he whiffed on C. Ponder and now his horse is tied to Bridgewater. Bridgewater would make for a very good backup QB but he doesn’t have the skills to lead the Vikes to the SB.

    green bay won the division right?

  15. NoHomeTeam says: Feb 11, 2016 2:27 PM

    He’s made the “significant jump” all the way up to serviceable.

    I’m not quite sure what other Vikings fans see in this guy. Granted, I don’t get to see a lot of Vikings games where I live, but every time I’ve seen him play, his performance has not been impressive. I think he can manage to not lose the team a game, but I haven’t seen anything to indicate he can win one when the team needs him to either.

    Worse, I don’t think it’s a lack of physical talent; it seems like the game is still moving too fast for him. There’s just too much indecision and delay.
    I understand that he’s been instructed that his Priority One is to be cautious and not turn the ball over, but you’re not going to put up many points when your favorite receiver is Right Sideline (thanks to whomever I stole that from!)

  16. vikings1234 says: Feb 11, 2016 2:29 PM

    Teddy improved and the team improved a lot this year. I do not think many people expected the Vikings to go 11-5 and win the division. If Teddy and the team continue improving they should go deep in the playoffs next year. I hope neither regresses.

  17. cheeseisfattening says: Feb 11, 2016 2:30 PM

    I heard the Spielman interview. When he was talking about Bridgewater he sounded as excited as Eddie Lacy tweeting about ‘going to get some China food’.

    I have not been keeping up with Lacy’s tweets about what food he was excited about eating lately. What is the current Lacy comfort food?

  18. bobthebillsfan says: Feb 11, 2016 2:32 PM

    That first picture – looks like he is scratching an itch.

  19. prideof10000lakes says: Feb 11, 2016 2:32 PM

    He also compared Christian Ponder to Drew Brees so there’s that.

    SKOL.

  20. Teddy BH20's House of Noodles says: Feb 11, 2016 2:34 PM

    Yeah. So much to be excited about. He was supposed to do BIG things with AP taking the pressure off of him and adding Wallace and the flash in the pan Stefan Diggs.

    Instead he basically replicated his rookie season while showing off his major limitations in accuracy on deep passes and making it clear that his athleticism and arm strength will make him more suited to be a backup QB than a starting one. He’ll be a nice option to backup Russell Wilson, just like the previous failed QB experiment did.

  21. ariani1985 says: Feb 11, 2016 2:34 PM

    Green Bay has become a door mat for everyone as of late! Ever since Vick layed down the law many years back its like taking candy from a baby!

    #OT you lose again

  22. filthymcnasty3 says: Feb 11, 2016 2:35 PM

    This reminds me of how excited Spieldope was about Ponder heading into his 3rd year.

  23. pamperpro says: Feb 11, 2016 2:36 PM

    “He’s so great. Maybe we”ll score a td in the playoffs instead of all field goals. ”
    Wide left…………

    I wouldn’t say he’s complete trash but he’s not elite either. They won with defense not because of him. See pumpkin head manning…….

  24. Teddy BH20's House of Noodles says: Feb 11, 2016 2:36 PM

    North division champs in his 2nd yr . Rogers 2nd yr,still on bench
    ——————
    I’m not even sure what kind of sense you are trying to portray. It would make more sense if Teddy beat out a first ballot HOF QB and face of the franchise to secure his starting position. Instead he became the starter due to injury to Matt Cassell and beating out a backup who is probably better than him anyways.

  25. flyerfan78 says: Feb 11, 2016 2:38 PM

    Of course his numbers aren’t gonna be spectacular, when you have the rushing champ to hand the ball off to and not an out of shape 400lbs back your numbers won’t be sky high. However, here’s some numbers for ya, cam newton was pressured 72 percent of his drop backs in the super bowl and crumbles, the league MVP. TB was pressured all season an average of 71 percent of the time and won the division at 11-5, and also in Denver was pressured 78 percent of the time and still had his team in position to win the game. The future if very bright for this kid, especially if they can get better receivers and a much better offensive line.

  26. h0metownzero says: Feb 11, 2016 2:39 PM

    Does Rick realize that some of the road games will be outside?

    It’s not hard to beat GB or Chi at home anymore. We now consider that the soft part of our schedule.

    I came across something strange. Bridgewater made it to the pro bowl in his 2nd season. When I checked Rodgers for comparison he didn’t even have any stats in his 2nd year with Green Bay. He was like, riding pine or something…

    I guess you really can’t compare these two guys.

  29. filthymcnasty3 says: Feb 11, 2016 2:42 PM

    I have to admit though, lil Teddy looks so cute running around out there.

    Trying to play football.

    Ah the pride in having a pro bowl quarterback this year. joining teddy on the pro bowl qb roster were other PRO BOWL qb, jameis Winston, Derek carr and tyrod taylior. it took Rodgers, big ben, palmer, and brady to OPT out before any of their little brothers were offered a spot. But I understand Vikings fans clinging to any accolades they are able to find. I imagine having your qb recognized as an average qb is prideful SKOL

  31. nhpats says: Feb 11, 2016 2:44 PM

    The rest of the Vikings opponents are excited as well!

    Weird. How did they win a Super Bowl 5 years ago?

    Or put in layman’s terms 10x more recent than the Vikings 1st chance of winning one.

  33. getsome636 says: Feb 11, 2016 2:47 PM

    And the child beater has maybe one year left in him, so even more pressure will be on old noodle arm Teddy.

  34. h0metownzero says: Feb 11, 2016 2:49 PM

    Zimmer learned to go one and done in the playoffs during his time with Marv Lewis.

    Teddy is perfect for that.

  35. stevedenetz says: Feb 11, 2016 2:49 PM

    I need to give the young man his due however, you KNOW teddy would have tried to recover a super bowl fumble and would have the class to sit and answer questions after a loss. Cam should trade some arm strength to teddy for some of his class. then you would really have a qb.
    as much as we all dogged walsh, he manned up and talked to the media.

    Harrison Smith, but only because Blanton learned his lesson and won’t go anywhere near Lacy anymore.

    I normally don’t like to see players injured, but after you guys hopped up and down for a week telling us all about how “Hitman Harry” was going to “destroy” Lacy and “blow up” Aaron Rodgers, I took great satisfaction in Lacy trucking Smith so badly that Smith missed several weeks. I believe that would be “Karma” if one were to believe in such.

  37. filthymcnasty3 says: Feb 11, 2016 2:51 PM

    I think MN fans have become numb to all the Bridgewater collapses.

  38. jerry944 says: Feb 11, 2016 2:59 PM

    Ya because he really made the pro bowl…he was like the 12th alternate…

  39. doe22us says: Feb 11, 2016 3:03 PM

    Come on now lets be real Pro bowls get handed out like candy at a clown show. Nothing to crow about smh.

  40. whatjusthapped says: Feb 11, 2016 3:03 PM

    Keep this in perspective, Spielman has drafted two QB’s in the first round and its highly doubtful that he will be allowed a third chance. Ponder flashed in his first year and all the Viking fans were ready to pronounce him the next franchise QB. Problem was, they were wrong.

    Then he takes Bridgewater and he too shows just enough to keep starting him although, much like Ponder, his stats aren’t great and he ranks in the bottom half of the NFL.

    So ask Spielman about Bridgewater and his answer is highly predictable. Stick some truth serum in Spielman and he would probably say, “Has a herky jerky throwing motion, isn’t terribly accurate and he will never amount to much more than an average QB, if that” But as far as Spielman’s job security, he better hope Bridgewater can maintain that average ability because the moment he flops and looks just like Ponder did, Spielman is shown the door.

  41. fwippel says: Feb 11, 2016 3:05 PM

    The real question is whether Zimmer is going to direct Norv Turner to stop centering the offense around Peterson, and start doing something on first down other than handing AP the ball. The predictable play-calling was ridiculous.

    Bridgewater will be fine, indoors or outdoors. If the Vikings want to see better numbers from him, they’ll need to upgrade the OL this off-season, and add a go-to WR that Bridgewater can get comfortable with.

    Teddy did pretty much everything he was asked to do this past season, and did it behind a patchwork OL that couldn’t pass-block very well. If the Vikings get that fixed this off-season, they’ll repeat as NFC North champions in 2016, and it won’t take the final regular season game for them to wrap up the division.

  42. milkcan44 says: Feb 11, 2016 3:06 PM

    Fine young man – but couldn’t hit a bull in the ass with a banjo!

  43. nflpoker says: Feb 11, 2016 3:07 PM

    If they won the SB next season and Bridgewater is MVP of the SB, I would be more than extremely shocked. However, it would be fun throwing the crap back in the trolls direction.

    Still, the Vikes are on the top of NFC North mountain and the Packers are the ones that will have to knock them off. I don’t think the Packers can do it. Besides, I don’t think it will be one and done for the Vikes. They’ll do better.

    There is always a lot of Viking hate on their articles. The Packer’s need to get a life.

    BTW, did anyone put Lacy on the scale today or is it still broken?

  44. CallingYouOut says: Feb 11, 2016 3:09 PM

    When I watched the Vikings play this year, what I saw was this guy running for his life. I would not anoint him, but don’t see him being as bad as all the posters on this….not until he gets some protection can anyone say with any certainty what he is.

    Oline is where Spielman needs to put his attention this offseason.

  45. suhmonster90 says: Feb 11, 2016 3:10 PM

    The TEAM may have swept the Lions this year as Zimmer severely out coached Lombardi, but Bridgewater instills fear in nobody. He makes no contested throws and it’s clear he’s satisfied checking it down even in a hail Mary situation.

  46. shaggytoodle says: Feb 11, 2016 3:13 PM

    I could understand if they added to the foundation from his rookie season, but they really didn’t add much if anything to his plate in his second year. We heard how good his Deep ball was witj improved accuracy and i never saw a lot of that on display.

    So either he is going to need to show a lot of improvement nrxt season or Minnesota could find themselves in QB purgatory.

    Rick is also pretty easy to get excited, all it takes is having ownership of a late 1st round draft pick and someone he covets left on his board. Whether he is really good like Smith, really bad like Patterson or just OK as Theodore has shown us so far.

  47. elimanningup says: Feb 11, 2016 3:14 PM

    Put Teddy Bridgewater in a pass-happy West Coast Offense and he would light it up on the stat sheet.

    It’s not his fault he plays in an outdated 1990’s style offense.

  48. ariani1985 says: Feb 11, 2016 3:22 PM

    Notice that teddy is crafting his game while little erin Rogers is busy golfing? Just think teddy needs 4 playoff wins to surpass the little China doll to the east! Notice that teddy already has more OT victories than erin? Less red carpet and more practice Rodgers!

  49. anarchopurplism says: Feb 11, 2016 3:25 PM

    Cool. More pre-season predictions that are terribly wrong. Vikings were going to be sub-500 & not make the playoffs while Green Bay ran the table thru the division, huh? Just keep your comments to yourselves……try not to let the Vikings occupy too much space in your head.

    Vikes D needs to continue to carry the load, Teddy does need to step up, Norv needs to call more crossing patterns for the young man & AD needs to do his thing, without trying to do too much. Hoping a healthy O-line will show improvements as well.

    Future is bright Purple.

  51. mnfaninil says: Feb 11, 2016 3:36 PM

    Every NFL fan has a “feel” for their team. Vikings fans “feel” good when the defense is on the field. Usually good things happen and they play good defense. Back in ’98 and ’09’ when the Vikings were in the NFC Championship Vikings fans felt good when the offense was on the field, not so much the defense.

    I don’t get a bad feeling when the offense is on the field now because one thing Teddy does well is move the chains. The Vikings led the NFL in fewest 3 and outs. Does Teddy throw the long bomb well, no, does he move the chains, yes. That helps the defense as well. So I’ll take Teddy and his improving play, no matter how slowly he is perceived to be progressing, because he is not a liability. Vikings will win the North again and you can put them down for the next 5 years.

  52. The Almighty Cabbage says: Feb 11, 2016 3:36 PM

    I have no idea what young Theodore will be or will not be. It’s too early to tell and they put him under center all year to appease the child beater, which does not play to Theodore’s strengths.

    Luckily for Theodore, the child beater has said that this off season he’s dedicating to ball security and getting better in the Vikings’ preferred offense (which would apparently mean learning to run out of the shotgun, or maybe the pistol).

    I believe this year will tell the tale. There are no more excuses. It’s time to develop and produce, or enjoy the ride as the purples run him out of town on a rail. I personally would like to see him succeed. He seems to be a young man of high character, and that counts for something.

  53. nflpoker says: Feb 11, 2016 3:40 PM

    I heard Rodgers talked with Newton on how not to jump on fumbles and how to pout.

  54. wafflestomp says: Feb 11, 2016 3:41 PM

    Only in Minnesota’s funhouse mirrors of flawed logic could anyone discern Teddy B. as a franchise QB.

    That being said the Zimmer/Bridgewater combo is now 3-14 against teams with a .500 record or better.
    In other words, they’ve been quite bad when facing average to good teams.
    But by all means, keep riding that lame horse.
    The rest of the NFC applauds your cluelessness.

  55. Teddy BH20's House of Noodles says: Feb 11, 2016 3:42 PM

  57. packercpa says: Feb 11, 2016 3:47 PM

    As far as I am concerned, the Vikes can win the Division title every year as long as they don’t win the SuperBowl. I’ll take a SuperBowl title over a Division title any time. All you have to do is get in the playoffs. Doesn’t matter if you are on the road or at home. Nothing is guaranteed except having a chance to get to the Superbowl.

    So Vikes, you can brag about your Division title and your cough, cough, “ProBowl QB”.

    No sour grapes here, enjoy your NFC North title.
    You won it fair and square.
    But seriously, take a poll of Lion and Bear fans on who’s the team to beat in the North next season.
    I doubt you’d like the answer.

    The amount of gbay trolls on here has to be 7 to 1, packer trolls to Viking fans.

    Spielman and Zimmer are doing it right……the gbay faithful are scared.

    We won the division in only Zimmer’s 2nd year.

    I wonder, how does such an “average” or sub-par QB in the green eyes of puke fans BEAT you, at HOME, for the division??

    If you think Bridgewater is sub-par, you guys must really stink!!!!

    There endeth the lesson…….

    By your logic, Peyton Manning is the best QB in the league then, right?

  63. Teddy BH20's House of Noodles says: Feb 11, 2016 4:07 PM

    Teddy was more of a curiosity after his rookie season where there were so many unknowns and because of his rookie status.

    With another full season to evaluate those unknowns, and him basically replicating his rookie year while showing more flaws that people don’t now chalk up to rookie one’s like weak arm, lack of athleticism and inability to throw the ball from different platforms, he is now closer to being another Christian Ponder than not.

    By all accounts he seems like a nice fellow. He also seems to care a lot about his craft like when he used Madden in the off season to help hone his game. But at the end of the day, it still takes raw talent and athleticism and he just doesn’t have that.

  64. bhinrichs9 says: Feb 11, 2016 4:09 PM

    I think it is an easy solution. Anybody who has watched a Vikings game in the last year would tell you that AP can’t run out of the shotgun and Teddy is good out of the Shotgun. When we need a 2min drive late in a half or a game Teddy did it and he did it with tremendous poise. Excited to see him continually put us in a position to win with our defense.

    Numbers-wise I am not too worried, he threw the ball far less than the average NFL quarterback because of our scheme of running 66% of the time.

    Trolls gon’ troll.

  65. granadafan says: Feb 11, 2016 4:13 PM

    The Browns could have and should have selected Bridgewater. Instead, they went with the flashy drunk guy who the gullible fans anointed the chosen one and bought his jersey. They even ignored their highly paid outside consultant evaluation of QBs and went with the opinion of a homeless guy to take Manziel over Bridgewater.

    The facts are Teddy was the most pressured QB in the league, yet still had amongst the highest completion percentage. Look what happened to the likes of Cam or Erin Rogers when highly pressured. The lack of TDs is due to poor red zone play calling and a reliance on the run, hence the reason our FG kicker had the most FGs on the season. Once new OL Coach Tony Sparano whips our OL into shape, Teddy will be a top 5 QB and GB won’t whiff a Division Championship for many years to come…love the fear in cheesehead posts lately…SKOL

    The Browns could have and should have selected Bridgewater. Instead, they went with the flashy drunk guy who the gullible fans anointed the chosen one and bought his jersey. They even ignored their highly paid outside consultant evaluation of QBs and went with the opinion of a homeless guy to take Manziel over Bridgewater.

    That might be the most sensible post in the entire thread.

    Anyone with eyes can see Bridgewater simply does not possess the skills to be a franchise QB.
    Can he be a competent game manager? Absolutely.
    But as far as being a quality player a team can lean on in the postseason, at a teams most important position, no less, the answer is simply no.

    He can’t make all the throws. Critical in today’s game.
    He has no deep ball. Evidenced by needing a high chair when throwing a Hail Mary pass.
    His throwing motion is awful. He looks like a moose humping a washing machine.
    But in his defense, he’s been almost flawless when handing off to child abusers.

  73. In Teddy We Trust says: Feb 11, 2016 4:27 PM

    I wasn’t satisfied at all with Teddy’s performance this year, but I’m smart enough to realize that the stats he put up were a function of a lot of factors. The primary factor was the lack of an offensive line that could pass block. Watching the playoffs this year, I was struck by how similar Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Cam Newton, Russell Wilson, Carson Palmer, and Teddy Bridgewater look when they’re under pressure. Give Teddy some time to throw and you’ll be amazed at how much better he looks.

    The second factor was the fact that the offense had to be changed on the fly after the first game of the season because the coaches found out too late that Adrian Peterson couldn’t play in it. So Teddy had to get used to taking the snap under center after playing his entire college career and rookie year in the shotgun. It’s amazing how bad a quarterback can look in an unfamiliar offense that only allows him to throw the ball on third and long.

    Teddy’s throwing motion contributes to some inaccuracy on deep passes, but Aaron Rodgers came into the league with a bad throwing motion too, and he was able to fix it. The difference is that Rodgers was able to work on it behind the scenes while nobody knew who he was while Teddy needs to fix it as a starting quarterback.

    You are either part of the problem or part of the solution, Bridgewater is obviously part of the solution guiding his team to a 11-5 record, and missing out on a Divisional Round game after a botch field goal.

    The Vikes and the Raiders have two qb’s that are young, talented and still require some learning.

    Something both possess that will serve them well and all teams desire when drafting a high pick qb…leadership and attitude beyond their years.

    Just see Cam for the other end of the spectrum.

    We won the division in only Zimmer’s 2nd year.

    If you think Bridgewater is sub-par, you guys must really stink!!!!

    There endeth the lesson…….
    ==================================
    So, what you’re saying is, the Vikings won at Green Bay because of Bridgewater’s 99 passing yards, no TD’s and 1 interception, and by him completing 53% of his passes for a rating of 45.7.

    The Vikings scored on a run, two field goals, and a defensive touchdown, which was the difference maker.

    But Teddy Bridgewater lead them to the win.

    I think the lesson here is that the Vikings could have put anyone at QB to win this game, and probably would have had better results with a back-up.

    Teddy was more of a curiosity after his rookie season where there were so many unknowns and because of his rookie status.

    With another full season to evaluate those unknowns, and him basically replicating his rookie year while showing more flaws that people don’t now chalk up to rookie one’s like weak arm, lack of athleticism and inability to throw the ball from different platforms, he is now closer to being another Christian Ponder than not.

    By all accounts he seems like a nice fellow. He also seems to care a lot about his craft like when he used Madden in the off season to help hone his game. But at the end of the day, it still takes raw talent and athleticism and he just doesn’t have that.
    ——————————————
    Weak arm? His arm is just fine.
    Lack of athleticism? Really? His athleticism allowed him to create time on many plays due to the inept blocking of his front line.
    Close to Ponder? What are you watching? Ponder choked under all kinds of pressure. Teddy thrives and actually had the best accuracy while under duress.

    He’s no Aaron Rodger. I agree with that. But maybe you ought to watch him play a little prior to making comments about his.

    I really have to laugh at some of these posts. Some of what you say is true, some is yet to be known and some is just downright false.

    True – Throwing motion is not the best and struggles to get the ball downfield.
    Not Known – The kid doesn’t have it. How can you know this after less than 2 years of playing? He had it enough to bring the team to the NFC North championship.
    Not Known – They will be looking for another QB in 2 years – Again, who knows? But for now, he still has an upside.
    False –
    He’s inaccurate – He was rated one of the most accurate passers in the league even when under duress.
    Can’t pass accurately over 10 yards – Where did you get this stat? He’s actually pretty accurate other than deep passing over 25 yards. Under 25 he’s pretty on spot.

    Teddy Bridgewater is the black Trent Dilfer. Vikings fans can fantasize all they want but his pro career parallels his college career, his college deficiencies are still his pro deficiencies.

I guess it sticks in their craw that an apparently lousy QB led his team to an NFCN clinching victory over their team on the hallowed frozen tundra.

    Maybe Teddy improves with experience, more strength and an improved O-line, maybe not.

    I don’t see anywhere that Vikings fans are categorizing Teddy as an elite “franchise QB” — certainly if that definition is a top 10 QB. His upside is likely an above average NFL QB, with occasional great games. And you know what? That’s been demonstrated this last very weekend as good enough to win the SB if coupled with an elite defense (ironically Teddy played well against that Denver defense). That’s okay for now.

    I think the VIkings coaches are hiding behind that because they didn’t trust the Oline, inconsistent WRs or, Theodore or a combination of those things, other QBs had similar issues like Newton, Luck, and even Rodgers.

    Peterson did however, do something that only one other player (Tomlinson) has done since 1995. Lead the league in rushing with less than 1500 yards. Which I think is a bit of a concern, especially with the way the Vikings handled the offense.

    I feel that Peterson’s age is becoming an issue, and instead of adding dimension to Theodore’s game, as other teams did while developing young QBs with a heavy dose of running (Big Ben, and R. Wilson), they choose to handcuff him, and if AP is going to continue to avg 90 yards a game next season, they are going to need some help from someone else on that offense.

  103. asgrimsnorrison says: Feb 12, 2016 10:58 AM

    Bridgewater is an accurate passer and has by necessity adapted to life on the run in the pocket.

    He doesn’t have a cannon, and probably never will. That isn’t entirely essential to be a good quarterback. Tarkenton himself probably had a max range of about 40 yards. Kapp couldn’t throw a spiral on demand (he occasionally did it by accident).

    Having the rocket arm lets you gun the ball into smaller windows, lets you throw guys open instead of having to anticipate windows before they happen. Chad Pennington is probably the best recent example of a quarterback who succeeded (to a degree) without the arm, I remember an interview where some other quarterback with a stronger arm marvelled at how he was able to complete passes, he had to throw the ball so much sooner, before the break, before the seperation so it would get there on time. It was almost uncanny. I think Bridgewater probably has a stronger arm than Pennington, but that’s not saying much.

    All that said everyone noting the offensive line in pass protection being a key issue to any success for him is dead on. Having Peterson both helped and hurt.

    I do think the person who pointed out that his offensive scheme doesn’t really do him any favors was correct. Norv is a good offensive coordinator but his style really benefits from the strong armed long ball thrower Teddy is not. The vikings brought in Shurmur, perhaps to change the offensive style a bit (he’s listed as TE coach but is a former OC).

    As for Spielman being excited… well, if you’re comparing him to recent vikings quarterbacks, you’ve had a few cases where someone was briefly better but it was never a long term solution with any upside. Last time they felt good about their long term QB future was probably in 2004, when Culpepper had his greatest season (he probably would have won MVP most years with what he did, but Manning threw 49 tds the same year to edge him out). They felt so good about Culpepper that they let Moss go. And then Culpepper went on the cover of SI, followed by a horrible start and had his leg practically severed at the knee and was never the same again.

    @asgrimsnorrison

    I agree Pennington was great at it and the Receivers were as well, they would make the break, locate the ball and get their hands up practically in one motion, anticipation goes a long way in making the passing (especially the short one) effective.

    Coming out of college that was one of Theodore’s weak spots. He had very good WRs like a Parker that could create tons of space and he would feel like he was throwing into an open garage. That doesn’t happen nearly as much in the NFL, and to be able to get into the groove as Chad did, you need a lot of reps, and you need to get timing down, on game day, which is nearly impossble for Theodore, because they had to make sure AP got his touches.

    The posts about Teddy being inaccurate just accentuates how ignorant Packer fans are. He is one of the most accurate passers in the NFL, that’s not opinion, that’s statistical fact…and considering how obsessed you all are with stats, I’d think you’d know that.

    There is no “upside” limit to Teddy B, anyone who says there is, is also ignorant. Noone considered Russel Wilson a top flight QB, but he was lighting it up this year. Some QBs need a few years for everything to click, most do actually. There is a reason the top QBs in the league are in their late 20s and 30s. Teddy is 23. He’s well ahead of pace.

  109. frank booth says: Feb 12, 2016 4:54 PM

    Teddy Bridgewater isn’t ahead of the pace. He’s putting up numbers like an average to below average QB in his second year.

    Russell Wilson had 52 TD’s after his second year, a Super Bowl victory, as well as great running ability. Teddy isn’t even close to that.

    You want to see QB’s ahead of the pace? Marcus Mariota put up better numbers in 12 starts in his rookie season than Bridgewater did in 16 games in his second year- and Mariota did it with even far less weapons that Bridgewater has. His leading running back had 520 yards, and his best receiver is a 31-year old TE.

    Derek Carr and Bortles look far better than Bridgewater. They drive their offenses. Teddy is a bumslayer, throwing the majority of his TD’s against the Bears and Lions.

    But if there is no upside limit to Teddy Bridgewater, we will be in for a historic treat. I know of no football player, let alone any human that has no upside limitations, so he should be throwing 200 yard passes and jumping 20 yards off the turf in no time.

    Teddy’s biggest stumbling block this year wasn’t the o line, sure we need to get better, but overall they played decent enough to win 11 games. The biggest weakness on this offense is actually the man drawing up the plays. The team ran Adrian on 16 1st downs against the seahags. that is not smart football. What is, is that with the threat of AP in the backfield, playaction passes to an above average group of wr’s & te’s. how many slants to wr’s, or te seem routes did we try in that game? How many screen passes did we throw at an overly aggressive defense to slow down their pass rush….once you figure out that the correct answer is zero, you might start to piece together why the pass game struggled so much. One last very disturbing fact from the game is, that on all 3 drives deep into hawks territory, once they were already in fg range, they attempted zero passes into the endzone where it may have resulted in a td or a defensive penalty. Again, playcalling 100% for the lackluster issues. If I were Zimm & Spielman, Turner would be gone and install Shurmer as OC. At least then we’d have a scheme drawn up to at minimum, see what the qb and the surrounding talent are really capable of. The only thing we know to date, is that Adrian runs the ball, too often is the problem we saw in the playoffs though, it directly led to a loss.

    The same. 4th Winningest, 3rd most playoff wins.

    In case you’re wondering where the Vikings rank in the last ten years, it’s 17th (bottom half).

    Who is surprised?

    Nobody.

    Who is going to be the first troll to bring up the facts that little erin Rogers has never won a OT game?

    I would like to be the first to bring up the fact in three postseason overtime losses, Aaron Rodgers, two-time NFL MVP………has never touched the ball.

    The NFL can evolve. It’s acknowledged as too late for arianal.

    Vancouver

    Teddy’s average per completion 7.2 yards

    Rodgers 6.7 yards

    Check downs are what the league does these days.

    It was okay when the Vikings lost in OT in ’09 without ever touching the ball. And they didn’t give up a TD.Blame your defense as to why you never touched the ball.

    Oh, Teddy. You will never be as good as Ponder.
