Teddy Bridgewater Wants Teams to Put on the Game Tape


Louisville QB Teddy Bridgewater has been slipping down the draft and some believe that he can slip out of the first round of the draft. His performance during his Pro Day has made a few teams think twice about drafting the quarterback.

Bridgewater wants everyone to turn on the game tape and watch how he performs in games. He knows his Pro Day was bad, but he wants people to remember his performances on the field instead.

“Put on the game tape. The game tape speaks volumes because I’m in live action, I’m out there making reads, going through progressions, redirection protection, signaling hot routes, getting the offense in and out of the right play. Looking at those things, I think those things outweigh the Pro Day,” Bridgewater said.

He performed on game day and made a lot of things happen. His Pro Day made those memories disappear and made people question his ability. I am sure a few teams turned on the game tape again to see what kind of quarterback he really is.

    It seems like bridgewater is getting a raw deal. I think he is the second best quarterback in the draft after bortles. It’s crazy that manziel and Carr seem to be rated higher than him.

      he was just at the top of the draft before the pro day… then he couldn’t hit his receivers during his script and fell off the planet

        I think bridgewater made a good point in telling teams to turn on the game film. It just seems drastic to throw away a whole college career full of film and judge him on one day. I guess time will tell

          i agree with you. going into the draft, i thought he was the most pro ready at the position. then all the extra non-sense has him falling off the planet
