Chris Weinke talks about training Teddy Bridgewater
Quote:
WHATS IMPRESSED YOU ABOUT TEDDY?

Hes got a huge upside. Hes a special guy. Most importantly, hes coachable, and I think thats what a lot of NFL teams look for, guys that are coachable and can make adjustments.

WHAT DO YOU WANT HIM TO SHOW?

I think maybe the misperception on him is hes not a real vocal guy, right? I can tell you hes got a real burning desire to be great and his leadership skills are simple shown kind of through example.

Hes the type of guy that guys just naturally gravitate toward.

Really, you just want to fine-tune everything. I dont do this to make major adjustments. You want to make minor adjustments and make sure he has a great understanding of this process and whats going to be asked of him, physically and mentally. That he goes through this process with confidence and is then able to translate that into success in the National Football League.

WHAT WILL YOU TELL HIM?

I always tell guys, Be yourself. Im not here to change people, were here to simply be a GPS system for them, right? To show them the way and let them naturally be who they are, but give them some tools for success.

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF HIS NFL PROSPECTS?

I think hes a perfect fit. Hes the type of guy that doesnt have to say a whole lot, but I think will got into a locker room and gain respect immediately.

Hes the total package. He has the ability to do all the things theyre gonna do at the next level.

In terms of arm strength, hes got NFL arm strength. He can throw the ball accurately on the run. He has great escapability within the pocket.

HOW DO YOU THINK LOUISVILLE PREPARED HIM FOR THIS?

You can watch guys on film and see if they have total command of the offense and thats clearly evident that he felt very comfortable in that offense. Fortunately for him, he was in the pro-style offense, which will translate nicely to the next level.

Theres so many guys these days that never take a snap from under center before they get to the NFL and thats a transition, but hes a natural there, hes comfortable under center or in the shotgun, so I think hes ahead of the game...

We need to get away from that guy. We've got too many people on the field leading by example. & we've never had a QB that f'kn led.


We don't need any more mousy field generals.

And Ryan Tannehill, Russell Wilson, Geno Atkins, Drew Brees, and more.

IMG is one of the best for draft, combine, offseason prep/work. DeAndre Hopkins was at IMG.

Default Re: Teddy Bridgewater

Ha! dude trys to discredit Teddy Ballgame for training with Wienke and has no idea what he's talking about.

Also, Wienke seems to also think that taking snaps from under center is a big enough deal that the guys who dont do it have to transition. Yet again, our resident football experts think thats an overblown skill? Hmmmm.

carry on.

You really think CW made a difference with Cam? Just would have thought they would have possibly had someone train with him that didn't suck as a pro.

Weinke had only had two wins in his entire NFL career and won the first game of the 2001 season and then lost the rest for Carolina. He also has the second longest losing streak in NFL (17) only behind Dan Pastorini (21). Despite this, Weinke is tied (with Geno Smith) for fourth most rushing touchdowns by a rookie quarterback (6), behind Vince Young (7), Robert Griffin III (7) and current Panther Cam Newton (14)

Yep, that's who I would want my future franchise QB training with.

Maybe TB is going for the losing streak record ...

Look a few posts up, he has trained some very successful players. Just because he couldn't perform on the field doesn't mean he isn't a good teacher. IMG is a highly respect institution.

Ryan Tannehill and Russell Wilson trained with CW. Please point out their W-L records for me, since you are in a helpful mood.

Yeah, i guess you had to be a great player to teach a sport. Majic Johnson was probably one of the worst coaches in nba history. While Phil Jackson only averaged 6 points and 4 rebounds a game and the guy has 11 rings. Yeah ok.

Jon Gruden and Sean Payton are QB gurus without the pro careers .

Ironically, marginal players tend to make better coaches than good players. Many good players get by on pure talent. Marginal players lack that talent and get by on technique and understanding the game. Very rare are the guys that have talent and put in all the work on technique and the mental side.

Isn't that just what king Texan did? Run in blasting his mouth about something on which he knows little (i.e. claim something dumb). He's misconceived because he's biased and uneducated.
