A LETTER FROM LOUISVILLE ABOUT TEDDY BRIDGEWATER
In case you missed it, read this well-written letter to us Vikings fans about what we’re getting in Teddy Bridgewater. I already felt great about landing Bridgewater but this letter really seals the deal.
Now, don’t think that I’ve got my purple-colored glasses on and am too blind to see that despite all the talk about Bridgewater’s work ethic and high character, the only thing that matters in the end is his on-field performance.
Christian Ponder is also a great young man, but he can’t play quarterback in the NFL. Being a good human being doesn’t trump your play. If Bridgewater turns out to be a franchise quarterback (which I believe he will be), then his good-guy reputation will further endear him to the fans.
And that’s a great thing not only for the Vikings, but also the PED-filled and weed-riddled NFL.
