McShay: Bridgewater's pro day worst I've seen
Quote:
Todd McShay says that Louisville QB Teddy Bridgewater's pro day was the first time he's ever seen a quarterback throw worse in an exhibition than he did in games.

"It's designed for you to have success, it's supposed to be sort of a dog and pony show," McShay said. "No defense, no coverage to read, no pass rushers, in shorts and a t-shirt, throwing to your own receivers, in a scripted workout that you've been rehearsing days in and day out. There's no excuse, no reason."

McShay has attended over 60 pro days, so his bafflement is not insignificant. The analyst cautions that the greatest -- by far -- pro day he's ever seen was JaMarcus Russell's. Before Bridgewater's pro day, McShay said Matt Ryan's was the most underwhelming he'd ever seen. Here at Rotoworld, where we've refused to drop Teddy B from the No. 1 QB rank, we'd caution evaluators to pay heed to his last point, rather than the more salacious topic of Bridgewater's isolated struggles in an almost meaningless "dog and pony show."
So he's in good company.

At least Bridgewater can throw to his left. Bortles can't even throw to his left without pads on.

He completed every pass to his left at his pro day and beat Baylor throwing to his left all night long but who's counting?

Haven't been in here for a while.

I'm starting to think we're going with Clowney. With Antonio gone, it does make a lot of sense and I think Clowney would be coming into an evironment where he could flourish. JJ and JD would be a lot of fun to watch and the Defense would be immediately upgraded. I still like Teddy, but I don't think the Texans are willing to risk it.

Just because they were caught, doesn't mean they were accurate....did you watch his pro day? I watched every pass and he was all over the place.

And for your Baylor comment, here is every pass to his left that game.

First pass to left, great throw, on the money

2nd - low incomplete

3rd - a bad screen pass thats almost picked, incomplete

4th - over throw down the sidelines, incomplete

5th - ok out pass

6th - terrible pass to the rb in the flats, incomplete

7th - wr screen taken to the house

8th - good comeback route

9th - good out route

10th - over throw, incomplete

11th - hit the rb on swing pass

12th - come back route

13th - out route

14th - bad over throw but somehow the wr makes the grab


6 in-completions, 1 terrible throw but his wr bails him out, and the rest are petty throws like screens and quick out routes with big time cushions. The guy is 50% at best to his left and even that is spotty. Fact is, he struggles with accuracy. I am also starting to notice that when forced to go through his reads he gets sloppy and very inaccurate. This guy will be a Gabbert/Ponder clone. Hope we don't bite on him.


not included were the two TERRIBLE picks, one down the middle and one to his right to a rb on a quick out

funny thing is, probably the 3 biggest bridgewater detractors in this board have contributed the most to this thread.

It won't be done until a few years from now. If one guy performs well and the others don't, there's not going to be a ton of restraint and decorum in making sure people are aware of it.

I think the absolute worst will be if Manziel goes on to be successful. The other two don't have as many fans in Houston as JFF does. Maybe this message board is a different story, since not many known Aggie posters are pushing for JFF. At least VY never did anything of note, or you'd best believe Longhorn fans would never stop talking about him. Johnny will be the same with Aggies in Houston, even if it's not as represented on the board.

Me, I keep my college and NFL allegiances as separate as possible. While I always feel a little good seeing Ryan Tannehill quarterback the Dolphins to a win, once they're out of college, they're out of college. Now they're pros, and while I wish them all the luck (unless they're playing the Texans), they're not quarterbacking the Aggies on Saturdays anymore.

I won't deny I would love to see Manziel come in here and quarterback us to 5 Superbowls, but I'm also a realist and I can see how Manziel could come in here and quarterback us to 5 seasons of below .500. At this point I'm going to speculate as I can but hold faith with whatever Bill O'Brien chooses to do come draft day. There's a reason the guy is getting paid and we're all on message boards talking about it. If O'Brien decides Clowney, Manziel, Bortles, Bridgewater, Mack, Watkins, whatever, is the guy, I'll hold faith and wait for the results to come in.

This is why you'd draft Teddy Bridgewater...

Teddy Bridgewater shows off his intelligence

That's the first time I've seen the poise he demonstrates on the field in this draft process. Get him into his element, into the game... that's where he's comfortable and where he wins.

B-b-but he threw an INT at the end of that video because he didn't have on his super special gloves.
