Vikings' Bridgewater 'extremely comfortable' with leadership role
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/27/15) Vikings second-year quarterback Teddy Bridgewater is embracing his role as leader of the offense, the Star Tribune reports.
"I’m a young guy still on the team, but guys are pushing me forward to say something in the huddle, or break the team down, or break the offense down," Bridgewater said. "That just gives you that confidence in yourself, confidence in your leadership and I’ve been extremely comfortable doing that so far."
Coach Mike Zimmer is satsfied with the work Bridgewater has done during the offseason.
"It’s hard to never not be pleased with Teddy because he’s such a hard worker," Zimmer said. "We wanted him to get bigger and stronger; he looks a little bit bigger to me. He’s always worked real hard. The leadership things are starting to come better. I think he’s been doing a good job the two days we’ve been out here against the defense."
Bridgewater made 12 starts in his rookie season and played 13 games in all, racking up 2,919 yards, 14 touchdowns and 12 interceptions while completing 64.4 percent of his passes.
Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater: I want to be like Brett Favre
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(5/21/15) Vikings young quarterback Teddy Bridgewater apparently doesn't set the bar too low. When asked while accepting the 2014 Pepsi Rookie of the Year award who he would like to emulate, he replied that it would be future Hall of Famer Brett Favre.
"[He's] the guy," Bridgewater said via Pro Football Talk. "Besides the injuries and the hits and everything, he had a pretty successful career. He's a Hall of Famer for sure, multiple Super Bowls, and that's something I look forward to doing. Hopefully, I can win more Super Bowls."
Heady stuff for a guy merely heading into his second season and playing for a team that has never won a Super Bowl. But Bridgewater showed flashes last year, completing 64.4 percent of his passes for 2,919 yards and 14 touchdowns. He was particularly impressive down the stretch, hitting on 73 percent of his passes and averaging 273 yards in his last four games.
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 | Senior Analyst|
|(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).
|Toward the end of last season, Teddy Bridgewater wasn't just a pretty good quarterback -- he was a borderline Fantasy starter. Averaging 19.0 Fantasy points per game in his final six starts, Bridgewater proved he could handle Norv Turner's offense and has seemingly given the Vikings the franchise quarterback they've been lacking. With Minnesota adding Mike Wallace to the mix this offseason, they have a potent receiving corps for Bridgewater to work with. There will be weeks where Bridgewater will be a very good Fantasy option. Think about taking him with a late-round pick in drafts this summer and with a middle-round choice in leagues that start multiple quarterbacks.
