It has been mentioned that one of the issues some have is that it is inconsistent. Sometimes side-arm, almost never over-the-top in a pure sense as QB's are taught from grade school. Not that it means he cant throw, but just an observation. They said Bagwell had a weird stance too ...

He also has a little loop in the top of his motion .... like Tebow had but not near as exaggerated. It doesn't go straight back and straight forward , there is a small circular motion in there.

I am very late to this thread however was just reading through. Personally I don't see TB as being that skinny or fragile looking.

Actually, they were saying that about Mike Glennon right after he was drafted. The local radio guys kept talking about how Glennon was too skinny and that there was no way he could step in and play in the NFL this season. Not only did he play, he took most of the snaps and turned out to be very durable after taking hits.

Glennon looks like a bean pole compared to Bridgewater.



I am still undecided where I want the Texans to go however I am leaning towards TB. I like the reports that he has a high football IQ and is a true student of the game.

To me Johnny Manziel looks more fragile. The guy just looks like he would get killed on a NFL field. He also looks like Brick from "The Middle".

Our new HC hasn't seen much of the top QB prospects in the draft?!. I know he got a good look at Bortles when they played against him at Penn St, but common man, time to get with the scouting dept.

Im sure he is well aware of the top prospects. Its just a nice side-step tactic to avoid the topic and sound like he is falling in love with a certain kid.

I suspect his definition of "haven't seen much" is different than your definition. With the level of preparation it sounds like he demands, I think his definition of "haven't seen much" is probably on the lines of "I've only watched a year's worth of games and haven't even broken everything down, yet."

But also, he has his hands full right now evaluating our current personnel.

AND... he'd never say anything that would give anyone a clue of what he really thinks anyway.

Probably not. I never did the research though. I won't completely exonerate you, but I will publicly admit I was likely wrong.

First things first. He first gets his staff together. Then evaluate where you are at and where you want to go. Then determine whether FA acquisitions are affordable while still leaving you with money for the higher cost draft picks, each being higher this year than previous years because of our draft slot. Also, determine your own draft criteria with input of coaches, scouts and the GM.

Then determine which of the available draft picks meets your criteria. I'm sure the scouts are already working, but the head coach has more pressing priorities right now. I'd love both Crenel and Munchak to be in a position to join the staff. Crenel is likely and Munchak merely possible. But that would be an all-star staff which I hope could work together smoothly. (Please - No more Ryan/Gilbride.)

As posters, we get ahead of ourselves at times.

Great post, very true. He likely isn't past the point of even seeing exactly who they have on the team and how he values them. We are still early in this process.

Physically, Glennon reminds me of Patriots QB Steve Grogan, another tall, skinny guy. He was listed at 6'4" and 210lbs.
FWIW, Grogan was in the league for 16 years.

Kiper has dropped Teddy to 8th in his 1st mock draft. And he said this about him:

"Bridgewater will need to prove to teams that he can command an NFL huddle and be the face of a franchise"

I'm not really even sure what that means. Do JFF and Bortles not also face that same task?

Yea that statement had me scratching my head to.

I wondered too, until I thought about the "persona" projected by Matt Schaub.
