That's digging pretty deep in the FF Vikings archives right there.


I was wondering if someone was going to pick up what I was throwing down. Laughing


I cant even remember the last time I posted here, but I can tell you I havent forgotten about that.

If Teddy doesnt end up being the "QB of the future" we all hope, at least it seems like it wont be due to his work habits, because I cant hardly recall hearing of a player that the Vikings have drafted who has been constantly mentioned for his hard work, study habits and preparation.

I'm excited for the next few years to see how he progresses and what he can hopefully do for this team over the long haul (hopefully get Adrian Peterson a ring! - and all Vikings fans that long deserved Super Bowl win)

I don't know. People were saying the same things about Christian Ponder.

While I believe that Teddy has way more in the way of arm talent, quick feet and mental toughness than Ponder ever did, we'll just have to wait and see. There aren't a lot of sure things in this sport at this position.

Kyle Rudolph: "Teddy's a good kid. Teddy came in right away after the draft. He does nothing but work hard. Doesn't say a whole lot. And he also comes into a very unique situation. A lot of young quarterbacks come into the league and don't have veteran quarterbacks who are willing to work with them because they don't want to lose their jobs. But here, the situation that he comes into with Christian and Matt, they provide him with everything he needs to get better. he comes into a very favorable situation. Coming in with an offensive coordinator like Norv, a quarterbacks coach like Scott, and like I said, having two veterans who have won ten games, who've taken teams to the playoffs and he's got all the talent in the world. If he can go out there and learn and absorb as much as he can and learn from those four guys, he'll set himself up. He's a young kid. He's 21 years old. He's got a lot of room to grow still."

So weird for me that I'm nearly the same age as Teddy, yet he's competing in an NFL training camp to be a starter in the league.

Bridgewater has quickly learned the art of noncontroversial, selfless expression in interviews since he was drafted, sounding a lot like the 10th-year veteran that Cassel is. Bridgewater said he's not focused on the competition for the job, but rather grateful for the acceptance Cassel and Ponder have shown him.

Bridgewater: "I have to compete with myself first. That will make me a better player. Then I can compete with the guys in the room. That will make the team better."

I don't recall that exactly being the similar conversation about Ponder. The conversation I always heard about Ponder is about how he's an intelligent guy and will be able to pick things up rather quickly, not that he was a hard worker. And even if that were the case that they discussed his work habits, I believe it's evident that Ponder doesn't have nearly the work habits that are probably required for the position. He's still a good, smart guy, but he just doesn't have the dedication needed to be the best he can be. He has other things he likes to focus on. He does enough to get by, but not to excel.

“Look at this one,” Turner says. “The tight end is running an 18-yard out. Teddy drops. One, two, three, four, five and, bam, the ball’s out. See how quick that was. This is the No. 1 thing with him. He’s got such a quick release, and he makes quick decisions. That ball is out before the tight end makes his cut, and it’s thrown where only he can catch it.

“This helps every guy on the team. It helps the receivers and it obviously helps the linemen when you get back and get rid of the ball.”

A fun read in today's paper.

I really love Turner's personality. He was interviewed by Dan Barreiro the other day. Don't know how else to say it, but he seems totally comfortable in his role.

Hey, I haven't exactly been Ponder's biggest fan (ever). I was one of a handful of people in this forum who thought he had "bust" written all over him from Day 1. But there was never anything about him that suggested that he wasn't a hard worker. Ponder's busting was not from a lack of trying. He just didn't have anything close to the necessary physical skill set, leadership or mental toughness to be a starting QB in the NFL.

He's probably kind of glad to not have the hassle of being a head coach. While he was okay at it, I don't think he ever truly enjoyed it.

Plus, at 62 years old, he's probably fairly comfortable with the fact that he probably won't get another head coaching job. He'll be able to do this for 2-3 more years and then hand the reins off to his son (if his son doesn't get a coordinator job elsewhere first).

I love having Uncle Norv on staff!
