I would be absolutely delirious with excitement if Bridgewater turned out to be as good as Moon. Maybe him being an icon of my youth might have something to do with it, but if you get a guy as good as Moon on your roster you will be going to the playoffs a lot, especially now with how the rules are set for the passing game. I know Moon was pretty polished having played in the CFL for years before coming to the NFL and he had a crapload of PR work to do because of his skin color, but he's easily the best QB the Oilers/Titans or Texans have ever had.

Yep, having a future HOF'er here as qb would be pretty sweet

Teddy Bridgewater Reportedly Considering Return to Louisville for Senior Season; LINK

Quote:
Louisville quarterback and potential top overall pick Teddy Bridgewater isn't a lock to enter the 2014 NFL draft. The highly touted prospect is reportedly still considering the option of returning to the Cardinals for his senior season.

John Middlekauff of CSN Bay Area, who's a former NFL scout with the Philadelphia Eagles, reports multiple sources have told him Bridgewater isn't totally sure if he's going to make the jump. One more season at Louisville remains a realistic option:

Interestingly, when pressed on why a top prospect like Bridgewater would consider giving up the opportunity to get selected with the top pick for another year in college, Middlekauff noted he's heard from people at the next level who don't think the Louisville product would go No. 1:
That would certainly change this huh?

Honestly I don't know if it does change things , If he wasn't going #1 , what does it matter if he doesn't come out .... It might affect trading the pick if there was a team who really wanted him and not one of the other QB candidates. But otherwise for the Texans , if he isn't there to take and they weren't going to take him anyhow .... it matters not.

I do think it somewhat justifies the statements many of us have made about his value at #1 overall if GM's aren't going to take him ....

If he isn't the #1 QB taken , who is ?!? Carr ?? Johnny Football !?! Blake Bortles ??!

I wouldn't take any of those guys at #1. No Bridgewater means Clowney is the undisputed top pick IMO.

I'm not seeing the logic here. Does he think he will be No.1 next year? His level of competition won't have changed.

Level of competition isn't the only questionmark for Bridgewater , his mechanics may be the bigger question.

Most of us agree that if we were to draft him , we wouldn't start him out of the gate for whatever combination of reasons .... If he's not ready , he's probably better served staying in school and playing football than sitting on the sidelines. (But damn , its hard to pass up that big payday).

Is he the #1 overall next season ?! Probably not with Jameis Winston , Mariota and others likely coming out.

I don't think that's set in stone .... There are a lot of red flags with Clowney , this season has been piss poor for him (3 sacks?!).
At least a couple other candidates for the #1 overall IMO starting with Matthews & Barr ... Maybe even Mosley who I think is the best "football player" in this draft.

Every player has warts of some sort. Let's agree to disagree. IMO it's Teddy or Clowney at #1.

Actually, it will.

He'll be in the ACC Atlantic next year, which means he'll play both Florida State and Clemson, mandatory. Also, Boston College, who has a very good coach and is on the rise. The level of competition will be much higher.

It actually makes as a bit of sense.

Is there a legitimate fear on his part that he doesn't become a top five pick, minimum? I mean, sure, if he stays then all aboard the clown car, y'all.

Just looking at it overall, it may not be all about draft position. Maybe he really likes his coach Charlie Strong and his teammates. Maybe he wants to take this Louisville team further. Maybe not,
I don't know.

I'm only saying that staying for another year does make some sense.

Yep, it'll only be his sacks and not:

1) His rare combination of size and speed; or
2) His impressive 2012 year; or
3) The tape

It'll just be the three sacks.

A lot of us look at Clowney and have visions of Mario Williams II in our heads. Not a bad pick but ultimately never the player so many people thought (and said) he could be.
