Yes.


STRENGTHS Needs more weight on his frame, but has size needed to see over his offensive line. Has been working with former NFL offensive coordinator Steve Fairchild to improve his delivery and mechanics. Has experience under center and in a play-action offense from pistol set. Appears to be comfortable throwing on the move and has the arm talent to make throws from a variety of arm slots. Throws with plus drive velocity when it's time to rip it into a window. Quick-footed athlete who is able to elude pocket pressure and hurt teams with his legs.

WEAKNESSES Still extremely raw. Has just one season of quarterback experience under his belt. Doesn't have experience necessary to throw with desired timing and anticipation at this point. Looks for open man rather than developing windows. Footwork can become an absolute mess in the pocket. Will throw with front side flying wide open at times. Inconsistent ball placement plagues him with crossing routes. Leaves wide receivers in a holding pattern with some of his underthrows on deep shots. Ball doesn't come out on time frequently enough.

So if he fixed his weaknesses, he'd be Aaron Rodgers?

Lively arm, athletic, tall, gun slinger mentality, hungry, good work ethic. Not Rodgers potential but he could develop into an NFL starter in a few years.

His weaknesses sounds like he's working with two left feet and eleven thumbs. :D

I don't get KFAN where I am. Wonder if the Vikings game broadcasts are on iHeart Radio. Probably not.


I think it is. Well, KFAN is definitely on iHeart radio. I'm not sure I've ever tired it on game day. I guess I'll try that on Sunday, just for kicks.

KFAN is on iHeart but I believe during games they play replays of other stuff rather than the game. I recall trying to listen to a game this way a few years back this way. No dice.

Eric Sugarman quote on Teddy Bridgewater: "He will be reevaluated by his surgeon next Monday and then we'll take it from there.''

Vikings have 3 weeks before they have to decide if they are going to put Teddy on the active 53 man roster. Or he goes to Pup/IR


So as soon as he is activated next week, he's eligible to play (even though I dont think that will happen but just curious)??

Well, I guess that doesn't surprise me. You can get it on SiriusXM app if you happen to have a subscription. That may not be helpful :P

A hundred bucks gets you all the replays and live radio broadcasts on NFL game pass, which I figure is about the price of going to one game at the stadium. I'm in the Seattle area now, so I have to watch the Vikings games after they complete. Or listen live.

Yes. The Vikings have 3 weeks to either put him on the 53 or shut him down for the season.
