Report: Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater wants more in year two
|by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com|
|(3/21/15) Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater expects more out of his play than he put on the field his rookie year, per the Pioneer Press.
"I wasn't impressed," he told the Pioneer Press this week.
"Yes, we did some good things as a team," he continued, "but we could have been much better finishing games. That's what separates championship teams and determining whether you're playing games in January or watching games in January."
The Vikings went 6-6 in Bridgewater's 12 starts. Despite his six wins and twelve starts as a rookie quarterback being Vikings' records, he knows that there was more that he could have done on the field.
"I left a ton of plays out there, whether it was due to poor mechanics, bad ball placements, overthrows, underthrows," Bridgewater said. "We want to be a big-play offense, and I have to continue to execute and play at a high level to allow our guys to make those big plays."
The 22-year-old threw for 2,919 yards with 14 touchdowns and 12 interceptions in 2014.
No competition in Minny: 'Teddy is the quarterback'
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
|(12/30/14) Vikings coach Mike Zimmer made it clear "Teddy is the quarterback," indicating Teddy Bridgewater won't face competition for the 2015 starting job, reports ESPN.com. Bridgewater finished his rookie season on a high note, throwing 10 touchdowns and six interceptions in the final six games.
Minnesota went 6-6 in his 12 starts. All told, Bridgewater completed 64.4 percent of his throws for 2,919 yards with 15 touchdowns (one rushing) and 12 interceptions.
Unheralded Thielen leads Vikings receivers Sunday
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(12/28/14) Vikings second-year wideout Adam Thielen entered Sunday with just five catches for 69 yards on the season. He nearly doubled those totals in the win over Chicago.
Thielen caught three passes for 68 yards and contributed a 44-yard touchdown reception from Teddy Bridgewater in the third quarter.
His efforts led an otherwise mediocre performance by the wide receivers. Also contributing were Greg Jennings (3-45), Jarius Wright (3-25) and Charles Johnson (2-22).
Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater does just enough to get past Bears
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(12/28/14) Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater ended his rookie campaign on a high note, leading his team to a 13-9 victory over Chicago in Week 17.
Bridgewater fired a 44-yard touchdown pass to Adam Thielen in the second quarter for his only score of the afternoon. He compiled 209 yards while completing 17 of 25 passes. He added one touchdown and no interceptions, registering a 90.2 passer rating. He was sacked three times and rushed for 18 yards on six attempts.
Bridgewater's rookie season comes to an end with 2,919 passing yards, 13 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.
Teddy Bridgewater turns it around in second half
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(12/21/14) Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater got off to a very slow start in his NFL career, tossing five interceptions to just one touchdown in his first four games. However, continues to turn things around, as he put together another solid performance in Week 16 against the Dolphins.
Bridgewater tossed a pair of touchdowns to just one interception on 26 attempts Sunday, his fourth game with more scores than turnovers in the last five. He also passed for 259 yards, bringing his three-game total to 883 yards, by far the best stretch of his career.
Bridgewater now has 13 touchdowns to 11 interceptions on the season, however he has been much improved of late. Over the last eight games, heading into the season finale, Bridgewater has 12 touchdowns and six interceptions, while completing 65.5 percent of his passes and racking up 237.3 yards per game.
He hasn't been a Fantasy star, but he has certainly shown flashes of that kind of ability. He has at least 17 Fantasy points in each of his last five games, and could finish the season with a flourish in Week 17 against the Bears. Bridgewater looks like a keeper, and could be in the discussion as a starting Fantasy option for his second season in the league.
|We know that Teddy Bridgewater is the future starting quarterback of the Vikings. We don't know when that future will arrive, but with Matt Cassel simply a placeholder in Minnesota, it shouldn't take too long. Bridgewater threw for 9,370 yards, completing 68 pct. of his passes and scoring 74 total touchdowns over three seasons (38 games) with Louisville, earning him chops as the most "NFL ready" quarterback in May's draft. Because we don't know when Bridgewater will start, Fantasy owners shouldn't consider him ready for 2014. When he does start expect him to be on waivers if you need him as a bye-week replacement and possible sleeper. As for the long-term, Bridgewater should get snagged with a mid- to late-round pick in dynasty/keeper start-ups and a late first-round pick in rookie-only drafts.
