Nothing special or outstanding about this post. Just a place for Teddy Bridgewater highlight videos, including some interesting takes from around the internet before and after Bridgewater’s selection by the Minnesota Vikings in the 2014 NFL Draft.

It’s a cheap way to get you to come to this website, but let’s not pretend we don’t both love it.



Excuse the stereotypical music in this one:

And excuse the terrible music in this one

I like the cut of this one’s jib

I have no idea why the Teddy Bridgewater Gruden QB Camp is the shortest one they have. Usually range 20-45 minutes:

Also, let’s throw in some gratuitous defense against the insane Teddy slander in the leadup to the draft, this time by the former CEO of the Raiders, Amy Trask:

Back to highlights. I love this one, flow, production, selection and music (your taste in the music may depend on your opinion of 90s R&B):

This one is really focused on the “Teddy Football” part of his game:

Also, here’s a fun one describing the process of going through protections. Of note, Bortles, Carr, Manziel and Garoppolo were not responsible for their protections in college, and more than one quarterback has been cut because they have not picked them up quickly enough (the most recent and well-reported of which was Tyler Wilson from the Raiders).

I promised some Bridgewater news, and it isn’t surprising:

He played at 220 for his sophomore year and he’s 21. Should be fine to add bulk.


  1. I am so pumped he’s one of us now. He’s just got that feel about him – focused, likes to prepare, jives really well with the coaches. I think the next few years are going to be quite exciting for the Vikings. Just hoping the NFC North doesn’t batter itself out of SB contention. We have some strong teams here.

  2. Great tapes! I absolutely can’t wait for September! I think Teddy is going to do really well with the Vikings in the NFL. I would bet that Teddy has the playbook down by training camp. This kid is smart enough to be starting by game 3 or 4. It’s gratifying thinking that our new QB was home celebrating his new job and Mother’s Day while another new NFL QB was out buying 100 beers and shots for his teeny bopper admirers. OMG am I happy that the Vikings got Teddy!!!!!!

  3. I’m stoked we have a young QB we can get behind. Thanks for putting the videos in one place. The thing that stuck with me most, aside from how Teddy doesn’t seem to get rattled, is no. 9 (Parker) made some great/difficult catches. I like that guy. Anyway, glad there’s finally some optimism for a QB we drafted. I don’t remember ever being excited about a QB the Vikings drafted. Skol!

  4. Fantastic vids!

    Again, watching Bridgewater, I’m struck by the way he doesn’t necessarily throw to the receiver, but rather, ‘throws the receiver open’. The Vikings receivers are going to absolutely LOVE that; a QB who knows how to put the ball where they, and only they, can get to it.

    He’s running the timing on the routes in his head because he knows where the receivers are supposed to be and adjusts with nothing more than a glimpse, in a way we haven’t seen since Favre (OMG GREG LEWIS!). And he’s counting defenders at the same time because he knows when he’s pulled the cover from one target by drifting towards the first read before shifting to the second.

    I love the way all his receivers are expecting the ball to come to them, every play. You can see how they turn and their arms come loose; there’s no pre-determined targets in these passes, Bridgewater has them all accustomed to being ready if it happens to come their way. That tells me that he doesn’t lean too heavily on any one target, and he’s doing the full read analysis solution every time. You don’t even see this in most starting NFL QBs.

    He’s able to run but he maintains his focus and he throws when he’s ready, not when pressure forces him to. This is one of the things that really concerned me with Manziel and other than one incredibly stupid leap over the top, I haven’t seen Bridgewater fall into that trap. On that leap…. unless it’s the closing seconds of the Super Bowl with the Lombardi at stake, I never ever ever want to see a Viking QB pull a stunt like that. Just sayin’ :)

    This guy’s the complete package. Finally.

  5. 7:20 of that first video makes me so happy. Sure, it’s an incompletion, but you know the ball is exactly where it’s supposed to be. He KNOCKS DOWN THE PYLON. I am beyond ecstatic about having him.

  6. Farve showed Minnesota what a real quarterback can do. Now Teddy is going to give us something special. An assasin like we have never had.
