High cost, but worth it. I think we just picked our franchise QB. We have 2 3rd to play with and I'm sure we can turn the 3-8 into extra picks if we want. Big time move for the right guy. Well done Rick. Norv gets his guy, Zimmer gets his.

Vikings drafted the best QB in the draft. I hope Cassel will play well enough to give the Vikings the luxury of letting him sit for a year and learn.
They need to get him a guard and a few more defensive players before he starts.

I'm cautiously optimistic about this! Nice work in the first round.Its better to lose the first game than the last one.

From watching the tape, a few things stand out: 1) Bridgewater likes to move around inside the pocket and keep his eyes downfield; 2) his throwing motion gets the ball out quickly; 3) he wears gloves all of the time.

Bridgewater is a hometown hero here in Miami. Great job Vikings. This kid can really play. Skol

i'll admit that leading up to the draft i was hoping we would not take bridgewater, and was soldon the fact we'd prolly get Mett...whatshisname.. in the 2nd r 3rd round,
Norv is building his offence, this isn't me saying.. ohh i like this guys tangibles better, this guy is faster, his pro day was better. Norv i would believe knows more then me, has seen more of teddy then i have.
they spent time together in florida in private workouts, read in the Strib that Nov himself sat with teddy, coached him on the spot, and saw immediate improvement. if that can happen in just one private workout, imagine what these 2 can do in a full season, working him into the lead roll, and having someone with Cassells experience to work behind.
Maybe they wanted Johnny, maybe not, but if Norv told slick rick, don't let this guy get away (teddy), then we have gotten a QB that is accurate, can read D's, and polished off by a proven offensive coach.
