    There you go, Teddy Bridgewater to the Vikings...at pick #40!! After landing Mike Evans, a kid with the size, leap, speed and hands to be the next Calvin Johnson. Pairing him with Flash Patterson and playing Jennings and Wright from the slot would likely be the best 4 WR set The Vikings have ever seen...and spread things out for Mr. Peterson to do some real damage!!

    I don't see ANY way that this happens. If the QBs start slipping like that people will be trading up to go get them before we get a shot at No. 40. Would love this though of course.

    I think half the people criticizing Bridgewater are speaking truthfully, the other half is enjoying the fact he might still be available as an option. Teams like Arizona, KC, Cleveland or even New Orleans might shock everyone and grab him in the late 1st round. I know that sounds unbelievable, but if the Saints or the Cardinals love the kid, they will keep their mouths shut and grab him when its their turn.

    The one thing that a lot of scouts on the NFL Network keep repeating is, "You don't need analysts, players or 32 NFL teams to love you... you just need one GM." And if one GM loves Bridgewater, he isn't going to tell ANYONE, he will just bide his time...

    I wouldn't mind this at all. I think Positions like LB can be filled with 3rd rounders.
    we are set on the DL, have a bunch of young Lbs and Really need some Cbs and another safety. CB can be addressed this season or next, same with Saftey.

    However an offense of...
    Mike Evans , Jennings and CP at wrs, KR at TE.. and AP at RB
    Would be hard to stop.

    Bridgewater at 8. How many people counts as a bandwagon? I feel like there's not enough people for this wagon to roll. I'll get off and push if i have to.

    Awesome first round for the Vikes! Big Time potential at both pass rusher and a guy who has excelled vs. the pass rush in the past!!

    Thing is, with Peterson doing the heavy lifting and attracting attention to the line, seems we always are passing on 3rd and medium to long, perfect time for a blitz...unless, you are facing a QB who excels vs. the blitz!!

    SKOL VIKINGS!!!

    BAAAHWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
    Control the line, control the time, and give your D a chance to shine!!

    All about Speilman covering his azz. He waits and waits on the qb and then takes Bridgewater. Another weak armed qb in a division where cold weather rules late. You have to have a strong arm in this division, Rodgers, Stafford and Cutler. We take a noodle arm. This guy best be able to anticipate throws and throw guys open unlike Ponder or he will be a collosal bust. In watching TB in the combine and with Gruden he was terrible in some of his down the field throws. I would have loved for them to wait till round two and save the pick and go one of the second tier qb's. I liked the first pick in Barr. A freak athlete that has just scratched the surface of how good he can be. He's a baby in terms of playing linebacker yet had terrific stats just playing out there and learning. Stats better than Clowney. Carr should have been the pick instead of Bridgewater. Strong arm, athletic, and big.

    I don't think Bridgewater was Spielman's pick, I think that pick was Turner's.

    Bridgewater and Carr were a push for me, and I would have been happy with either at that point. I really like Teddy's emotional make-up, I think he is a stable guy who could be a strong leader. He is accurate, which is a MUST in a Turner system. He is a pocket passer with mobility, which Turner loves; if you trust Turner and/or Zimmer (who trusts Turner), you have to think they have seen things we haven't. I'm not ready to shit on our coaches, so I'm not going to shit on their choices.

    THIS is what they wanted, THIS is what Spielman gave them. Zimmer got his LB, Turner got his QB, and I FINALLY got a GM who seems to have listened to the men who have to work with the players he drafts!!

    Carr has a much better arm, is a very good athlete with some speed , and a bigger frame. Mike Mayot , wrong spelling raved about what a nice ball he throws and how he has all the throws a great qb needs. I just wonder about Teddy's arm. It also worries me about Teddy seeming not being able to handle the moment at the combine. He then did the same thing with Gruden. Missed lots of throws. Just hope he's got the mental part of this down being a starting qb in the NFL.
