I am choosing to put faith that the new regime takes us in a new direction, but I know some don't feel that way.
Rick Smith is still here so it's not a new regime.

An inside look as Teddy Bridgewater prepares for the NFL draft (video)

Quote:
A clip of Bridgewater throwing a football flashes on a television monitor, but the receiver is not in the frame. Weinke asks if the pass is a slant route or a hitch route. Bridgewater knows it’s a slant because of the direction his feet are pointed. Weinke nods.

As the film rolls, Weinke rewinds and replays throws, sometimes four or five times in a row. The room is quiet, but the clips, shown over and over for emphasis, speak for themselves.

The movements are quite familiar to U of L fans. Teddy’s quick dropback. Teddy’s elegant footwork. Teddy’s precise throws. Rewind, restart.

“The ball gets out of your hand so freaking quick, Teddy,” Weinke tells him. “They’re going to love you, man.”

Teddy smiles and thanks him. When Weinke says “they,” he is referring to NFL scouts, coaches and executives. Of course, not all of the teams need to love Teddy. Just one does.

“I can’t control what’s in the future and what’s down the road,” Bridgewater says. “But what I can do is prepare myself for when that time comes.”

It’s just after 10 a.m., and Bridgewater has been awake since 6. For the first time, he can turn his total focus toward football. No more tests to study for or papers to write.

Garappolo reminds me of Cousins with a quicker release. Great 2-3rd rd pick.

Lot of coach speak. He's gonna be an extremely boring interview in the NFL. Hopefully if we draft him he brings plenty of W's to appease me. FYI, I'm a huge Richard Sherman fan.

Then he explains the use of "hoss" which is a one word call they use to tell every receiver which route to run; outside receiver is a hitch, TE is split right inside and running a seam route etc. Basically this word in a play call allows a QB to change every single route with the use of just one word according to a certain look he gets. Wide juke tells the WR that if a defender is playing him a certain play as he begins his route, he can option to juke inside or out.

Then he goes on to talk about what a QB can do with this play call after he gets to the line of scrimmage based at the defensive front, how the CB is lined up against a receiver, if LBs are roaming around like an amoeba defense, and he gives more examples of what the QB has to recognize and then relay the right checks to his WR based on what he sees.

What he discussed above is the very definition of X's and O's, and I don't think that is disputable.
...well, I don't know, I guess I can just leave it at petulant child. You can continue to cry 'Hack!' but that kind of play breakdown isn't something you can expect Skip Bayless to do. You can expect Skip Bayless to act like he knows what he's talking about.

Please don't talk about things you know nothing about, it makes you look like an idiot.

Please don't tell me that is your manchild mating call. I'd hate to think of you having children.

As someone pointed out, this is nice but just comes off as fluff.

If anyone cares for more of Kollmann's analysis on Teddy, this piece from back in late November is his initial scouting report.

When you're weary
Feeling his hands are small
When tears are in Aggies eyes
I will dry them all

I'm on the 210 pound side
When the bliz gets rough
And deep balls just can't be found
Like a Bridgewater over a troubled offense
it's another Texan first down
Like a Bridgewater over a troubled offense

When you're down and out
When Schaub is on the street
When evening falls so hard
I will bring southern comfort for you

It took your heart
When darkness comes at 2-14
And pain is all around
Like a bridgewater over a troubled offense
it's another Texan first down
Like a bridge over a troubled offense

Your time has come to shine
All your dreams are on their way

As a guy who does scouting for the NFL Network, there are people who have read it reports before in lead-ups to the draft and might value his opinion over...well, you, I guess. Nobody is forcing you to click it, so piss off.

Feel free to actually address the breakdown he gave and point out which parts of it are incorrect. I'm in no rush.

EDIT: I realize this little feud of ours is anything but productive, but don't get in a huff for me linking the guy's other work for people to read. I'm not pimping Todd McShay or anything.

Still sticking with the "he's a scout for NFL network" crap huh? And I don't need to address anything. He lost all credibility With me when he made ridiculous statements about Manziel and Bridgewater. No credible source make statements like that.

Yes, he does film analysis for the NFL Network and in particular was asked to do a series of scouting reports for them on several defensive prospects last year, including, but not limited to:

-Alex Okafor

-Arthur Brown

-Xavier Gooden

-Datone Jones

-Dion Jordan

-And others. Just google his name + a defensive prospect from last year (particularly linebackers and linemen) and it'll likely be the first link to pick from.

He's a scout, deal with it. However, he's not only a scout but also knows his X's and O's, particularly his analysis of the 2013 Seahawks secondary which - as a few have pointed out - is exactly what the Texans did to build their huge lead against them in the first half this year. The man has talent and experience and knows what he's talking about. Stop talking about things that you know nothing about.

You are transparently and overtly defensive because he doesn't like what he sees in Manziel's tape. You disagree with him; hell, I disagree with him. And that's fine, but don't use that as motivation to claim:

A) He's some no-nothing talking head; and

B) He should be ignored outright

Because you are - guess what - wrong, wrong, wrong-ity wrong. You are letting your emotions get the better of you and ignoring the real key of what he was saying about Manziel: that ultimately he is not nearly as good a fit for the type of offense O'Brien runs compared to Bridgewater.

I think Manziel has an underrated and fierce football intelligence and sees the field better than almost any other QB in college, but Bridgewater's skill-set and experience in a pro-system makes him a better fit. Even the football savant comment isn't that far off when you look into his background at Louisville. Manziel should go to a place like Minnesota or Cleveland (especially if they get Kubiak as an OC as has been rumored very recently) where they incorporate more West Coast concepts and can make direct use of his mobility and vision while running on boots and play action.

If nothing else, at least respect someone else's goddamn opinion about wanting to even link his other work without getting in a huff because he insulted your golden boy.

In the meantime, I'm still waiting for you to address matt290's post. Good day.

...is this a joke? He literally works for NFL Network as a Production Assistant Intern. If you continue to claim that he's a scout then I'll say you're full of ****, every time.

Yeesh, buddy.

So you ARE hurt about what I said about Kollmann. Thanks for clarifying, at least. Please don't talk about things you know nothing about. It makes you look like an idiot. Have you always been this dumb or have there been substances involved?

Interview of Teddy.

Quote:
WERE YOU ABLE TO TAKE A BREAK AT ALL AFTER GRADUATING AND PLAYING IN THE BOWL GAME BEFORE BEGINNING YOUR TRAINING?

I was able to spend about a week with family. After that, I just knew I had to get going, so I started training back in Louisville and I was searching for an agent, interviewing agents and different people, marketing companies. I spent a week touring facilities.

WHAT MADE YOU PICK IMG?

Out of all the places that Iíve been, this is the best facility, I feel the best resources, incredible people around here, and itís an established facility. [They've had players] like Cam Newton, Ryan Tannehill, Russell WilsonÖIím just honored to be a part of it.

WHEN DID YOU KNOW YOU WERE LEAVING LOUISVILLE?

Well I knew, uh, well I knew before the season that I would.

WAS IT HARD TO NOT TALK ABOUT IT?

It wasnít hard at all, because I knew back when I was getting recruited, I had a plan. My plan was being able to graduate in three years and possibly declare for the NFL draft at the end of my junior season.

I came up with those goals back in high school. It wasnít hard, I just knew when I was at the University of Louisville that that was my primary focus. I couldnít control what was down the line for me, so I just shifted my focus to focus on what I could control, and that was my time at the University of Louisville.

HOW DID LOUISVILLE PREPARE YOU FOR THIS NEXT STEP?

It prepared me very well. I believe itís one of the top-of-the-line programs, from the coaching staff to the training staff to the equipment staff, everyone plays a key role and theyíre all supportive.

WERE YOU SURPRISED TO SEE CHARLIE STRONG GO TO TEXAS?

Not really, I knew that he just had to do what was best for him, with all of his hard work and everything he did for and at the University of Louisville, Iím pretty happy for him.

WHAT DO YOU WANT TO PROVE TO NFL TEAMS?

I just want to prove that I can compete at a high level with consistency and show that I have no flaws.

HOW DO YOU SHOW THAT?

For one just hard work and dedication, commitment to the training here at IMG for one and also just mentally and physically preparing my body.

YOUíVE ONLY BEEN HERE A FEW DAYS, BUT WHAT HAVE YOU LEARNED SO FAR?

I just learned that you play the game with the lower part of your body. You generate all your power with your legs from the ground upÖrather than going all arms Iím trying to improve and use my legs more.

WAS LAST SEASON A CHALLENGE FOR YOU, FACING THE EXPECTATIONS YOU FACED AT THE START OF THE YEAR, WITH THE HEISMAN HYPE?

It wasnít a challenge at all because, you know, I feel like the type of team that we had we were able to manage expectations very well. I had a supporting cast around me and so it wasnít all about me and my expectations with the Heisman because, you know, the game of football isnít the individual, itís a team sport.

We were able to put all the individual accolades aside and individual goals aside and sacrifice for the team.

HAVE YOU THOUGHT ABOUT THE POSSIBILITY OF PLAYING PROFESSIONALLY IN FLORIDA, YOUR HOME STATE?

I havenít thought about it. Iíve just been thinking about the process right now, training and everything. Like I said, I canít control whatís in the future and whatís down the road, but what I can do is prepare myself for when that time comes.

WHAT IS IT LIKE TO KNOW ITíS FINALLY YOUR TIME?

Itís just very exciting knowing as a child you dreamed of having a chance to play in the NFL. Now, throughout little league football, high school football and college football, your hard work has paid off and you have a chance.

WHAT DOES YOUR MOM THINK OF ALL THIS?

Sheís pretty excited. Sheís happy for me also because she knows Iíve sacrificed so much. Sheís sacrificed so much and just the people around that are involved in my life have sacrificed so much for me to be in this situation.

I KNOW YOU WANT TO GET HER A PINK CADILLAC. HAVE YOU LOOKED INTO THAT YET?

(laughs) Not yet. When the time comes then Iíll look

WHAT CAN FANS EXPECT OF YOUR PROBABLE REPLACEMENT, WILL GARDNER?

Will is a great guy. He was raised under coach Watson and myself where he was able to learn from my mistakes and also take the great coaching from coach Watson.

Will, I feel like, hes going to light it up next year with everything heís been taught for the past two seasons of just being the understudy and in the shadow of me I feel heís learned a lot. Heís gonna take over that team and heís gonna do great things.

WHAT WILL YOU MISS MOST ABOUT LOUISVILLE?

Just the relationships I was able to form with some of the guys. There were great guys on that team. We had guys from all over the country. Thatís one thing ill cherish the most, you know, is it was a brotherhood there and each guy felt the same way about each other.

Default Re: Teddy Bridgewater

Seeing as mussop actually can't respond to legitimate arguments re: Kollmann's knowledge of X's and O's, etc. this IS the last post. I sincerely apologize to anyone who had to read this tripe from the two of us.

Yeah thanks for posting the text of that interview bOODRO87, I watched the video but the guy holding the camera was so shaky it was giving me motion sickness

One thing I notice about Teddy is he seems like the strong silent type, definitely not a charismatic interviewer, not that it really matters but I have seen some idiots on other sites claim he is "dumb" because of how he interviews.
