Teddy Bridgewater

Posted: 12/10/2012 4:15 PM

Teddy Bridgewater 


I don't get the hype surrounded around him. Don't get me wrong, I think he's a fine QB. But to me he's this year to what Geno Smith was last season. It seemed like all the Geno Smith hype died down once WV start losing games. Despite that he still had a pretty good year even though the defense couldn't stop a cold. I feel like Teddy and Geno are the same QB. From Miami. Same Size. Diagnose Defenses. Great touch on short, medium, and long passes. More of pocket passers than scramblers but can scramble if need be. Teddy gets hyped because his team is 9-2 but Geno after starting strong and their record tailing off is now an anomaly. What gives???

Re: Teddy Bridgewater 


Teddy gets hyped because he has tremendous poise in the pocket and makes some really good throws in tight windows with tremendous accuracy.

Sometimes I just shake my head how he improvises and still drops a pass on a dime.

Re: Teddy Bridgewater 


I hear you SOBO but Geno went through the same weak Big East last season. If I'm not mistaken the only rank teams Louisville played this season was Cincinnati and Rutgers. Both which were beaten by teams in the MAC. Don't get me wrong. I think he's a good QB. But as others were saying earlier in the college season about Geno Smith, we have to wait til he plays some real competition. Obviously Geno Smith's gaudy numbers took a drop but he still put up good numbers. We'll see how Teddy does against a good Florida team in the bowl game but I just feel like for what it's worth, Geno should be getting same endorsement.

Well, we might not find out in Florida game. Depends on how healthy he is.

And I've never been a big proponent of the lack of competition argument. Same arguments were made against RGIII and Luck last year. Don't think either team that drafted them are upset with what they got.

Sure, you'd like to see these talents shine against the top competition, but sometimes they're not put in a position to succeed for multiple reasons.

Over an entire season, defenses will adjust to what guys do, and even if you play in the Big East, you'll face a team or two who can do some good things, defensively.

After the first four games for WVU, though, it was a valid point. You can rack up all the yards you want against James Madison, and Baylor, but it doesn't really prove all that much, just the same as nobody really cares what Teddy Bridgewater did against Temple or SW Missouri State. If you continue to do that over a full season, it means something.

Re: Teddy Bridgewater 


Okay guys. As I said before. Teddy is basically riding the same hype Geno Smith had at the end of last season. If you look at Geno's junior year and Teddy's year against pretty much the same competition, you'll see that their stats are nearly identical. We'll see how he fairs against the ACC next year. (Louisville moves next season right?) I just hate that Geno is getting a bad rep because of how poorly the defense played. Had the defense played terrific and they won 10 games, everybody would be saying that he deserves to be the first pick of the draft.

Re: Teddy Bridgewater 


Doubt he ever plays a down in the NFL. Slow, weak arm, not accurate, inconsistent, doesn't play well in games. He has no NFL future

Are we watching the same guy? He hits on 70% of his passes. How accurate does he need to be??? Inconsistent? He's only had like one subpar game this season. What are you basing all of this on?

Probably the Southern Miss game, where they played in a torrential downpour, with standing water all over the field. He couldn't pass a lick in that game.

His worst games of the year were against Florida International and Connecticut, who were two of the worst teams on the schedule. He had good games against Cincinnati, Rutgers, and North Carolina, who were the good teams.

Well. I guess tonight's game answered my question. I guess we'll have to see what does next season. He played a good game against one of the best defenses in NCAA.

Like I said when this thread started, some of those stick throws he made last night simply had my head skaking they were so damn good.

BTW, how good is the Top 5 next year?

1. Clowney
2. Bridgewater
3. Koundjio
4. Barr
5. Watkins.

Figures.

Clowney is just a freak of nature SOBO. He's like the LeBron of pass rushers. I feel like when there are freak athletes on the board in any sport but more specifically in football with guys like AP, Calvin Johnson, Cam Newton, RG3... Those guys upside and potential are too much to pass up on. If we got Clowney, our defense will turn into a top 5 defense year in and year out. That's how good he is. Add Te'o this year and this team would really be something to watch. But back to your Top 5. Bridgewater has to be your no. 1 QB on anybodies draftboards going into next season. I don't know much about the guys you listed at 3 and 4. I'll have to do a lil more research on them but I trust your judgement. You've covered football before I was born. But I will say this. I think Sammy Watkins is overrated. I don't know how to explain it but he just is. I'll have to meditate on that one and give you a clear cut answer on why I think he's overrated later but overall. That Top 5 seems like it would be the consensus for top NFL personnel people.

Re: Teddy Bridgewater 


Can I plug an entirely way too early Top 10 for 2014?

1. Jadaveon Clowney (DE-South Carolina)
2. Teddy Bridgewater (QB-Louisville)
3. Cyrus Kouandjio (OT-Alabama)
4. Scott Crichton (DE-Oregon State)
5. Louchiez Purifoy (CB-Florida)
6. Kwame Geathers (DT-Georgia)
7. Anthony Barr (OLB-UCLA)
8. Sammy Watkins (WR-Clemson)
9. Prince Shembo (OLB-Notre Dame)
10. Antonio Richardson (OT-Tennessee)

Just missed:

Marqise Lee (WR-Southern Cal)
Bradley Roby (CB-Ohio State)
Stephon Tuitt (DE-Notre Dame)
Stefphon Jefferson (RB-Nevada)


Some guys will decide to return and this list will change.

NEVER too early Phippsy.

And looks like we won't have to worry next year about elite talent, like we've so lovingly discussed this season over and over and over again.

Thank goodness.
