Article written by Greg A. Bedard of MMQB on Teddy Bridgewater

http://mmqb.si.com/2014/01/02/teddy-...014-nfl-draft/

Quote:
Bridgewater has vast responsibility at the line of scrimmage. First there is the kill system. Two or three plays are called in the huddle. Depending on the defense, Bridgewater has the ability to “kill” the first play, and run one of the others. It’s solely Bridgewater’s decision. Bridgewater also has an audible system at his disposal, with the same goal as every good NFL system: stay out of bad plays. If the play Watson has called has little chance of success against a particular defense, Bridgewater can change the play entirely at the line of scrimmage.

Finally, Bridgewater redirects the offensive line protections by either identifying the middle linebacker in man-to-man protections, or directing the slide one way or the other in zone.

Interesting article. I've heard legends of such things from the elders, I believe they're called "audibles" or something like that. Though the concept of changing plays at the line of scrimmage is completely foreign to me I have heard that there is such a thing and that they can be used well, even. I'm glad Bridgewater seems to be able to handle those responsibilities and I'm pretty sure O'Brien might actually allow such a crazy idea like these new fangled "audibles" to be used.

I say we move out of the first pick and take brett hundley out of UCLA in the middle of the first. I like him better than bridgewater anyways.

What is an "audible"? Is that part of the run, run, pass, punt offense that we use?

Very nice find and a great read. Didn't realize Bridgewater had so much authority over the offense. Speaks high for his football IQ. Will be interesting what other information comes out as we progress through the offseason.

An audible is sometimes heard in the stands when a fan orders nachos & a beer then audibles "wait, make that two beers!"

The Skinny On Teddy
By Greg A. Bedard | MMQB.SI
Quote:
In the coming months, as the 2014 draft nears, we will hear all about Teddy Bridgewater's lack of arm strength, size and other measurable qualities. But it's what is unseen that might propel the Louisville QB to be the No. 1 pick in May
Quote:
The inner belief in one’s ability. The never-ending quest for perfection at playing the position. An almost unhealthy competitive streak. The ability to lead. The desire not to be seen as being better than one’s teammate. Undeniable toughness.

Those are the traits that the great NFL quarterbacks have. Bridgewater possesses them as well. There will be much said over the next few months, in the run-up to the draft in May, about what Bridgewater might lack in prototypical arm strength, size and other things you can see. But he possesses the potential for greatness because of the things you can’t.
Bingo.

Franky, after reading up on Bridgewater and his IQ, he sounds exactly like what O'Brien wants in a player.

I don't want to turn this into a draft thread, but....

Look at the mock drafts of past years, and you will find big discrepancies between those made in January and April. No one knows who will or will not be available in the mid-1st round. Evaulations between the coaching staffs and scouts haven't begun. Then there are the combine, pro days, interviews, and more evaluations.

However, I do think this is shaping up to be a good, if not great, QB class. So in theory, you're idea about moving around and taking a QB somewhere besides 1-1 has possibilities. But, we're a long time from knowing who goes where at this point.

This is where one of those time machine things would be great. Go ahead 10 years, see which guy ends up being the best, where they fall in the draft and then come back trade down and take him.

If only life were like Madden.

Yes you can. No doubt. The kid is obnoxiously competitive. Everyone can see that. I have to read about it with Teddy.

More than anything else, I have to have that in my QB.

Young Fool! Do not utter such nonsense aloud! The gods are not kind to those who mock them with talk of "audibles" and blasphemous statements about changes to plays. At the line? Are you mad?

Go from this place now and study your play script in great detail. GREAT DETAIL I say! (May it never change).

Then say 10 "Hail Shanahan's" and you will be forgiven.

I don't care if you think he's the biggest douche on the planet, but when it's football time it's football time. Manziel is all football when it's football season. If he wants to Gronk it up the rest of the year I couldn't care less. Watch how he behaved on the sidelines on New Years Eve when A&M was down 38-17 to see how much he cares about football.

Disclaimer: I'm pulling for Bridgewater, not Manziel.

That was the media doing more than Manziel. He worked out in the offseason like any other. He was on record of working with QB specialist George Whitfield as even Kirk Herbstreit was there as well. Just because someone takes some off time to do other things doesn't mean they didn't workout to make themselves better. You don't workout 24 hours a day after all. Not to mention his play was better than previously.
