Default Tonight's Russell Athletic Bowl - Bridgewater's last game?

Well, if you haven't seen him play yet, here's your chance.

Default Re: Tonight's Russell Athletic Bowl - Bridgewater's last game?

Too bad it could not be against a quality opponent. I want to like the guy as there is a good chance he will be on our roster.

Russell Athletic Bowl in Orlando | No. 16 Louisville (11-1) vs. No. 25 Miami (Fla.) (9-3)

Time/TV: 6:45 p.m. ET/ESPN. Surface: Artificial.

Glantz-Culver line: Louisville by 3. Sagarin difference: Louisville by 4.28.

Bowl records: Miami 18-16, Louisville 8-8-1. Series: Miami leads 9-1-1 (Louisville won last meeting 31-7 in 2006).

Default Re: Tonight's Russell Athletic Bowl - Bridgewater's last game?

He's my choice for the #1 pick at this point. With that said, you won't hear any excuses from me if he doesn't perform tonight. On prime time in his last game (I assume) against his home town team. A lot riding on his performance. High pressure situation. Let's see how he handles it.

I'm on the Bridgewater or Clowney boat; with a slight preference to Clowney. It's Bridgewater's for the taking. If he lights it up tonight I think he's a Texan. If he stinks it up, he returns for another year.

Default Re: Tonight's Russell Athletic Bowl - Bridgewater's last game?

Louisville might have a higher ranking and be slight favorites, but that is ONLY because of how good he is.

There are between 9-10 guys on the Miami side of the football who will be playing football on Sundays after this and next years draft class. There will be 3 on Louisville's side. Overall, if you remove the QB from Louisiville, Miami would likely be a 20+ point favorite, but you can't remove him. So be sure to watch what he does today.

This is why I want to watch, I know how McCarron responds to high pressure games. To win me over TB needs to basically win this on his own and carry the team as everyone insists he has done all season. He needs to make plays and decisions like a #1 QB.

Just playing devil's advocate here, but why does TB have to do the bolded above when McCarron has never done it? I only say this because I know you are a McCarron fan. AJ doesn't carry his team. Why does TB have to carry his to win you over?

I seriously doubt if tonight's game impacts that kind of decision, one way or another.

Also LOL at this "high pressure" situation. It's a bowl game.

Agree with your first sentence.

High pressure in the sense that he is playing his home town team (which is important to him) on prime time TV in his last game to make an impression as the presumed #1 pick in the draft.

That's not to say that this game is important in any other way.

I really hope TB tears Miami a new one tonight. Even if we don't draft him, the Texans really need some more potential 1-1 guys in the mix to make it worth trading back. TB made himself a potential #1 pick last year in a bowl game, so hopefully we see a repeat.

Miami has been playing as if they have given up on the season after they lost to FSU mid-season. I don't expect Miami to come out with a lot of energy.

I rate TB better than AJ over all but the main reason I keep seeing why AJ is dissed and TB is praised is the ability to "carry his team". Now is the time for TB to show me.

If you praise your hot boat over mine then it needs to do what you say.

Your point is fair. But it's also necessary to mention that Teddy has carried his team quite far already over the last two years. He has proved on multiple occasions that he can do it.

Playing devils advocate (lol) would not more 1-1 players lower offers as teams would hope theirs would drop? IMO, Clowney and TB are only two that would cause teams to bring a package deal.

Nope. RG3 would have been #1 overall in any other draft of recent years, but Luck was clearly a better prospect. Having two #1 overall worthy picks only increases the chances of a trade down and increases the purchase price of those top 1 or 2 picks.

Well that wasn't a good start by Teddy...but his OL sort of did not help at all there.
