Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater has impressed his offensive coordinator, Norv Turner, with his ability to make the throws all over the field. Turner was stoked to get Bridgewater onto the roster from the draft. Turners loves his ability to hit his receivers down the field and his ability to make all the throws.
Here are Turner’s thoughts from Fox Sports.
“One of the things that has been the most impressive to me is, I knew he’d be very accurate, I knew he’d make great decisions, quick decisions, but he’s been outstanding throwing the ball deep, which some people thought that was going to be an issue,” Turner said. “I think in the six or eight weeks we’ve had him on the field, I think he’s been put in a position where he’s had to make most of the throws he would have to make and I think he can make all the throws he needs to make.”
Scouts had their question marks on Bridgewater after he had a sub-par Pro Day, but the Vikings coaching staff loves what they see on the field. Bridgewater will be competing for the starting gig when training camp opens up. If he shows the ability to make all the throws in the preseason, he could beat out Matt Cassell for the job.
