I have the same kind of feeling, a little bit. It's like he's hiding. I don't really like it, but it's not a big deal right now. I think this feeling is only magnified because we are watching a bunch of other guys work out right now.

I could be wrong which is why I'm asking.
During the first half he was the voice of reason. Calming his teammates, keeping them focused & turning that game around.

I beg to differ. Most of the good ones run the gamut. Depending on the situation. He'll be fiery, calming, level headed, inspiring, even down right offensive. Sometimes all in the same game, sometimes in the same drive.

The thing about the good leader... he knows it's his place. We may not agree & question his actions from time to time. He's not always right, not always wrong. But he knows he had to do something & he did.

I didn't have a problem with Schaub's leadership style or Andre's or Kubiak's or Mario's. But all together it's just a little too much.

Every now & then, someone has to be the bad guy.

J/k I get what you're saying.

But personally, most of what I've seen is what I originally stated. But doesn't matter to me really. I like effective more than anything.

Well... Rodgers was being talked about as the potential first overall, then dropped out of the top 10. I expect that should the same happen to Bridgewater, he will make the teams that passed on him regret that decision in much the same way that the teams that passed on Rodgers do.

And I hate that I have to say this, but I am not comparing him to Rodgers (just their (potential) situation), nor am I claiming he will be as good as Rodgers.

FWIW Rodgers dropped primarily because many thought he was Tedford system QB and being a JC transfer also worked against Rodgers. Up until Rodgers came along Tedford QBs were a disappointment.

Default Re: Teddy Bridgewater

Sounds like a bold proclamation to make IMO. I think of the top 3 QBs this draft Bridgewater has the least concerns on and off the field. To me though I think he might have a higher ceiling, reminds me of Matt Ryan in terms of high floor, but not sure about the distance between the floor and ceiling. I think he's easily most NFL ready prospect in this QB class.

However....if he DOES make this drop...at what spot do the Texans start to consider jumping back into the first for him?

Bridgewater is the most likely to fall because there is nothing about him physically that stands out.

Manziel has his scrambling ability, Bortles has his size. Bridgewater is average size, average arm, but he is very cerebral. Ahead of the game mentally.

The reason guys like Logan Thomas are always drafted too early is the same reason guys like Bridgewater fall. Coaches always feel they can bring Thomas up to Bridgewater's level mentally, and they know they can't bring Bridgewater up to Thomas' level physically.

If he falls out of the top 15 you have to ask yourself what does it take with the 2-1

Just watch. Thomas has the film of an UDFA and the body of a 1st rounder. He will be drafted in the first four rounds. Some coach will convince his GM that I'm the guy who can fix him, and they will roll the dice.

On the flip side, a guy like Aaron Murray, who I think will have a long career as a backup QB (while Thomas never takes a NFL snap), will fall to the 5th round.

A very similar pattern of behavior has developed among a majority of the media pretend scouts and talking hairdos. Much like they all spent a year in the tank for Reggie Bush and were touting him with every chance they got for 15 months, they're doing exactly the same thing with Teddy Bridgewater.

I don't think there's anything special about him at all. Had he put up the numbers he did in a major conference at a major program.... sure. If he were Big Ben's size I could see him in the 8~13 range.

I know many here think he's a day one starter... I'm not seeing it. His feet are ok, but nowhere near perfect. That & his reads are going have to be worked on at the next level. I don't like the way he holds the ball before the throw, I think his delivery is too slow..... not quite a wind up, but close, giving the defense too much time to recognize & react.

He did put the ball in some tight windows. His arm is stronger than you'd think. His ball placement shows that he has a good understanding of the concept.

I'm not as high on his "feel in the pocket" as some.

To be fair... I'm not high on any of the "top 3" QBs in this draft.

Huh? Yeah, yeah because ESPN has write ups on why Bridgewater is lauding Russell Wilson for being a guy "paving the way for short QBs" or when he makes comments about he'll make the Texans "regret passing on him" or when he he turns face as say how "cool it would be for the Texans to pick him #1 overall" or make a big deal about how of the Big 3 QBs on the draft board he's got the biggest hands surprisingly.

Oh yeah, that's right. That's not the Bridgewater hype. That's the Manziel hype.
