Bridgewater: "I feel I'm going to be very ready. This is where I've always wanted to be. Unfortunately, the way it happened wasn't the way I expected it to. But I was relaxed, the guys put their trust in me. They told me, 'Hey, nothing's changed. The game plan isn't going to change. We're just going to continue to play football.'"

Zimmer: "I thought he was very composed. I didn't see any panic. I believe he's going to be very good."


highlights from the New Orleans game:

what will we see in the future from young Teddy Bridgewater...?

Very promising day for Teddy!

Im really excited to see what he can do over the course of this season.

Who would have thought that Teddy and Peterson may never play in a game together..

The OL needs to tighten up if Teddy is going to be successful. We also need to get CP more involved.

This is Teddy Bridgewater's Team now.
Everyone on this team knows it.

I'm excited to embrace this era, it seems more promising to build around a young QB with great upside and a stout defense versus a RB.

It's clear that Bridgewater is the new face of the franchise. Peterson and Cassel getting hurt both sped up the process to be more dramatic.

The thing I saw in him yesterday that I really liked is that he just looked so comfortable out there. Even on some of his scrambles, he had a calmness to him, like he's done this all before.

Bridgewater looked way better than I thought he would being pushed into that playing situation. They tried to get so much pressure on him (and succeeded fairly well), but it didn't phase him. He made some throws under pressure. The throw to Jennings on the comeback route where he couldn't fully step into it, he still got it there, and he still placed it low and away so the defender couldn't get to it. Also, his running was a nice addition, it's sad that we need him to run, but with Peterson out, teams are going to have to respect the running attack more (or at least play more zone) to stop Bridgewater from running as much.

they never played together in pre-season either, when we think about it.

so not only will they probably never play in a game together, they've never shared the field for one play.

it's definitely a new era beginning.

I think they will eventually. The bigger doubt is whether AD and Cassel will ever play another game together, at least with Cassel as the starter.

Cassel is a good guy, so I hated to see him get injured, but it was also nice to see Teddy get his first chance. I've said it over and over, but I have to say again how glad I am that we ended up with Teddy instead of Johnny Manziel. Teddy is going to be a good one!

Really impressed with Teddy yesterday, aside from the few "missed" check-down throws I thought he played fantastic.

Although it is terrible Cassell got hurt, the fact that he did may have been the best case scenario for the Vikings organization as a whole. With the media frenzy of the Peterson situation, a new franchise QB coming in was just what the doctor ordered from a PR standpoint.

Just when things were looking completely dire for us fans, we get this silver lining. Sooner than we thought (and sooner than many wanted), but things are looking up.

Teddy has earned his shot, maybe sooner than expected, but it's his big chance.

He threw a lot of good passes yesterday. Now, we get to see how he performs with full weeks as the #1 and with teams preparing their defenses to face him.

I like how he runs the huddle, and more importantly how he keeps poise in the pocket. Atlanta will be a good start for him . . . Then Green Bay at Lambeau, right? If he passes those two tests, good. If he leads the Vikes to playoff contention, holy smokes!

One last thing, all he has to do to stay focused, no matter how tough things get, is look over his shoulder and say, "Man, I don't wanna be that guy."

This may not be the best set of circumstances for Teddy.

Adrian is gone for the year, Jerome Simpson is gone for good and Kyle Rudolph is out for two months with a hernia.

That leaves essentially no running game and no weapons on offence outside of Cordarrelle Patterson.

Sad

Ellision and Wright need to make do with there increased opportunities.

Doesn't he need to prove something first, before we anoint him anything?

I was too quick in my judgement with Jackson and Ponder. I'll reserve such for Bridgewater.

on a smaller scale though, Teddy looked good against New Orleans.
