I think he has first round talent, but like Wilson and Keenum, I have to knock him down a bit, and then the off-the-field decisions knock it down a bit further.

Bridgewater, on the other hand, doesn't posess the mental nor the phisical ability to be a number one overall.
He's a cross between many QBs drafted in the first round but outside #3 overall, not a bona-fide can't miss prospect.

So let's say this is a reverse scenario.
I held through and through with Newton as the number one over all pick.

Personally, I thought he handled all the mental aspects well.
For a young man, handling adversity shows your true color.

Bridgewater has yet to be "exposed" to such scrutiny.

Adversity and scrutiny are way different than being mentally advanced as a QB. I'd buy that. He hasn't faced near the scrutiny as Newton did. But don't say he doesn't have the mental part of the game down. He's further along (mentally on the field and in the meeting room) than any recent QB not named Luck.

He may not have been exposed to the same amount of scrutiny as Newton or Manziel, but anybody who is a Heisman candidate for most of the year has certainly been placed under the microscope to some degree.

He has certainly face adversity though.

Which means he kept himself clean by submerging himself in football . This like Lebron James where folks hate on him but he really has done nothing wrong which means he's doing something very right .


On the other hand Teddy became the man of the house at 15 when his mom got breast cancer . He quit school for a month to mow yards and wash cars to support her .

Let's assume that what you've heard is all true, Did you hear of possibilities like when Luck and RG III were on the block?

Why do you have to settle for less?

So it's all good that I put him under scrutiny; too bad he doesn't hear it.

Less than ?

Luck ran a pro style offense at Stanford and RG3 was athletic and smart but did not play in a PSO . Right now RG3 is benched because he is either not healthy or hasn't adapted after the league has schemed for him . Luck is on his way but could be a little more consistent .

just curious, TB, Bortles and Hundley all should be top 16 picks and probably Carr also; so why should a team in top 10-15 trade up for a QB? I am really hoping for a trade down but only thing I see is for "sizzle". Hopefully, a team will greatly prefer Bridge over the others enough to say "Let's make a deal".

Don't know what to tell you here Earl.
I guess it's just my two cents.
If it were Luck and RGIII coming out, I wouldn't have complained.

But I did have some concern, even with Luck.
It wasn't because I want to knock on a guy for non reason.
Wilson was doing a hell of a job at Wisconsin under more pressure.

Luck has the build and the athleticism, but Wilson made the best out of it.

If I had the first pick, I might still have to go with Luck, but if I don't , I did say that I will go with Wilson, and then Keenum.

A championship team need all three facets, some more, some less.
I can go back to all the teams that have been in the SB the last five, ten, fifteen years.
The vast majorities of the teams that get there had a combination of at least two.

Whether it's coaching or talent (I think you need both, but coaching is more important.)

Way back in the day, in the weeks leading up to the 2006 draft, John McClain said he had it on good authority that we would be drafting Vince Young.

So, I'll have to go with: whomever McClain DOESN'T say will be our QB heading into next year.
