What's Schaub's hand size? He's not on the list. Can't really find anything on the internet, either...

Hand size is stupid. No correlation between being a good qb and your hand size.....NONE what so ever. Teddy has lived his whole life with those hands, hes not gonna suddenly forget how "small" they are and let it affect him holding the ball.....they are over critiquing him like they do every top guy every year. Passing on Teddy will be the biggest mistake we make if we do it....

BREAKING NEWS: Teddy does NOT have small hands. They are 9 1/4". That is more than acceptable for an NFL QB. Also IMPORTANT NOTE: Teddy has been accused of being small and frail but has same body type and frame as JOE MONTANA did coming out of Notre Dame.

Default Re: Teddy Bridgewater

I've been silently on the Bridgewater Bandwagon now since shortly after the season.

It has to be Bridgewater or Brett Smith. No one else should suffice for the Texans.

As much as the game is won and lost in the trenches, if there is a such thing as a tipple - edged sword, then we best believe that a Head Coach will rise or fall based upon his QB of choice. There are just no ways around any of these basic football facts.

Bridgewater, Theodore.

Some of you guys are just getting too wrapped up in the "tear down Teddy to make your guy look better" arguments. First it was his weight, then the thickness of his arms, then his lack of Heisman votes in 2013, then his conference competition, then his crossdressing, then his "looping motion" in his throw, then the angle of the ball in his throwing motion, then his defense is making him look good, then his spiral isn't tight enough, then not declaring for the NFL draft immediately, and on and on and on. It's really boring reading the same stuff over and over again. The super-anti-Teddy crowd really needs to step back off this thread, because most of you aren't adding anything meaningful to the discussion.
You name 18 QB's and only four had hand sizes 9 1/4" or smaller. Also hand size was one of the first things being pointed out several months ago and now we are finding out he does have a smallish hand. This is why he wears his glove, or by one report two gloves.

You say hand size is irrelevent to QB play, but Manziel is critized for carrying/swinging the ball outside his frame as he scrambles. But in spite of this risky behavior, he had the fewest fumbles of all the top ranked QB's.

Unless something drastic happens, I dont understand how the Texans dont draft Teddy B. Manziel is a huge risk, Bortles is big and has potential but neither is ready compared to Teddy. Great accuracy, smart, talented, humble, eats and ****s the game. The kid has it all.

If Manziel continues his ball-carrying technique into the NFL, someone will break off his large-ass hand and offer it back to the ref with the ball still attached.........

Hand size is not a stupid thing to be worried about.

Dave Krieg was a QB who was very close to being very good. But he had very small hands. Because he had very small hands, he fumbled. A lot. He had 18 fumbles lost one season and 16 lost in another. There have been some other small-handed QBs who had similar problems.

Bridgewater's hands, otoh, never looked THAT small to me. So I wasn't worried about that.

Are we looking for a starting lineup of clowns? We already have D.Hop's giant hands, and we've seen/heard what he does w those online. Teddy is just fine as he is.

Give that man a hand.

Thomas 10 7/8 and Vaughan 8 7/8 were listed alphabetically next to each other. I bet Vaughn is having confidence issue tonight.

Did Warren Moon have small hands? Because that guy was a fumbling machine.
