Lighten up. It's just a funny "blooper reel" play! You know, comedy, like the poll said.

Plus, Teddy Bridgewater isn't exactly "down" at the moment. He's recovered from his injuries and will get a chance to play again sooner or later.

But he did lose his starting job. And was told repeatedly by Zimmer he would start this year. And its doubtful he will, because Case is doing so well. But I consider Teddy being down yet. I guess I just didnt find it funny, but to each their own.

I'm not convinced he's lost it (the starting job) yet. He's come back from a terrible injury and it's wise that the Vikings are cautious with making changes. I want Teddy to succeed, but I'm just not sure what (if any) lasting effects will occur because of the injury. Also with Case doing so well, there is absolutely no need to rush the switch. So why would Zimmer? Lastly, the season is not over yet. We still may see Teddy under center before we are done...

It's not like Teddy had taken us to a couple of Super Bowls before he damaged his knee. The jury was still out on him. He showed questionable arm strength and accuracy downfield, average accuracy in the short game, decent mobility, good leadership... a mixed bag. Yes, there was a lot of potential there, but the knee injury was pretty devastating and he might have durability problems moving forward. He has yet to take a single hit since the injury. I'm not saying he's finished, but he's got a lot of ground to gain back before he can move forward.

We would probably be a .500 team with Teddy at the helm this season.

Good question. What was Teddy's completion percentage, attempts and W/L record in those?

DP you can scan through that link. What's interesting is some games Teddy didn't throw a TD and we won.
Like game 8 we won in OT.

I was being a little bit of a butt. I'm familiar with his stats.

I pretty much guarantee if the situation was reversed that 2015 Teddy would still be starting.

Teddy Bridgewater 2015 stats (through 12 games, behind a terrible offensive line, worse receivers and worse offensive coordinator):

W/L: 8-4 (Case: 9-3)
Completion %: 65% (Case: 66.8%)
TDs: 8 (Case: 18)
INTs: 8 (Case: 7)
Attempts/game: 28 (Case: 34)
Yards/game: 200 (Case: 248)

The Vikings were dead last in passing attempts/game in 2015 (probably smart given the comically terrible o-line) and if you remember correctly Norv stubbornly rarely liked to pass in the red zone.

We really weren't a passing team back then.

I agree on the terrible coordinator.
Wallace, Diggs, Thielen, Rudy and Wright had good games. Not a bad bunch of recievers

The offensive line gave AP a rushing title.
Our weakness was our passing game.

My guess is Norv gave the ball To Peterson from the 10 yd line in. Take a look around the league. Many one yd TD passes to pad QBs stats. That's one of the reasons I don't care much for stats. I don't even know how many TD/INT Case has at the moment. The only thing that matters is the W. Look at Newton. He probably had terrible passing stats. Like him or not, he won the game for Carolina. IMO, it's what you do when the game is on the line that matters. That 3rd down completion to be able to run out the clock. Getting rid of the ball so you don't fall out of FG range. Those plays matter. Stats are for.
