...for Bridgewater's knee to explode at practice?

Keenum has done okay, he deserves a shot.

Can a Vikings fan explain why you are all so excited about him? I just don't see it.

I believe the answer is every Vikings QB before him.

I can still remember when they let Jeff George go to make room for Daunte Culpepper.

He played decent when he was healthy and he was still very young. Great personality, the guy you want to be the face of your franchise.
I don't think he was ever going to be a Brady or Rodgers, but he had/has the potential to be a solid starter for years.

As a Vikings fan, nor do I. He is a fair QB with an average arm, 2nd string at best who now has a really big knee issue. Teddy best count his blessings and find employment off the field.

Considering over the remainder of George's career he threw 7 TDs and 9 INTs and in Culpepper's first year as a starter he threw 33 TDs and 16 INTs, it would seem they made the right choice.

Neither is Sam Bradford, come to that.

Doesnt a guy need two good knees to be chased around behind the Vikes O line?

He's like Russell Wilson with a noodle arm.

Jason Campbell still plays?!

I'm not ok with this vampire shiat. Rodgers season is ended by the Vikes and then their QB is ready to come back the next week?

He reminds me of Vince Young, but much, much smaller.

cutefuzzysquirrel: QB is ready to come back the next week?


I doubt he will be ready to play for at least several weeks, and even then he will be rusty. I don't think opposing teams will have to worry about Teddy, assuming they ever did, until next season.

No, fark, Teddy Bridgewater is nothing like [black rushing qb]. He can run a little, but he's not an exceptional ball carrier. He has some mobility in terms of scrambling to extend plays. He was alright his rookie year and showed improvement in his second year, enough so that there was hope he'd be a dependable qb for a while. And it's not like the Vikings' offense was doing him a ton of favors.

He's more like Alex Smith with a stronger arm. Nothing amazing, but good enough to hold down a starting job for a while if he doesn't have a complete garbage team around him.

*He could complete 3rd down and 7 passes. This doesn't sound like a big deal if you have a top 10 QB on your team, it's a huge deal when we have been dealing with Tavaris Jackson, Gus Frerrote, Old Donoovan McNabb, Joe Webb, Matt Cassell, and Christian Ponder under center over the last decade or so.

*He never seemed fazed by the pressure of a situation. Basically he passed the eye test. he looked competent. Not a ton of TD's, not a lot of Matt Cassellish INTs either.

*He seems like an intelligent and likeable person. That's a lot of the love.

*His stats were shiat, he also had Old Greg Jennings, Jerome Simpson, Jarius Wright, Joe Webb (No that's not a typo, we tried him at receiver too... speaks volumes about the post Favre Vikings doesn't it?), 3-years-removed-from-being-decent-Mike-Wallace and Charles Johnson. He had year 1 Diggs and proceeded to throw him 720 yards and 4 tds over three-quarters of a season.

*The Last time we saw him he led the team down the field for a game winning field goal in the playoffs wide left. He did all we could have ever wanted him to do.

*He's young and we drafted him and maybe, just maybe we didn't screw up a QB draft pick for once.

Christian Ponder had one great game against my Niners, and I remember thinking that if he could do that every game, he'd be solidly respectable. He was accurate and made good decisions. He scrambled effectively to buy himself more time. Nothing unbelievable, but very very competent.

From what I've seen of Bridgewater, he's something like that every game. We'll see what he's like with one leg.

Unless you have a rock star defense, game managers don't lead teams to championships. I see Ted as a game manager. He also had Peterson before he started sucking hind teat, no?

Psst. We DO have a rockstar defense.

Yes, he had AP. As did Ponder, Cassell, OldMcNabb and Ponder. Didn't make THEM any better.

I still laugh at a Halloween costume idea from that year based on the play of "Old Donovan McNabb": Put on a a McNabb jersey and throw candy at the feet of trick-or-treaters.

I had wondered if his leg fell off at the knee for how long he's been out. Probably something happened along those lines.

/remember hearing it was a catastrophic knee injury that left players physically ill
