Teddy Bridgewater 'not comfortable' discussing Vikings QB competition
Teddy Bridgewater is 'not comfortable' talking about the Vikings quarterback competition.
Whenever a quarterback involved in a preseason competition is asked about winning said competition, the answer is pretty standard. He's going to give it his all, definitely wants to win, good-natured competition, both teams played hard, straight cash homey, etc.
"That's something I don't feel comfortable talking about," Bridgewater said. "I'm just looking forward to training camp. Can't wait to get to Mankato, put the pads on and just continue doing what we've got to do: play football."
Well that's a new one.
You almost never hear a quarterback unwilling to claim his spot at the top of the depth chart.
But don't worry -- Norv Turner's willing to get Bridgewater's back, even if his quarterback doesn't want to blow his own horn.
"I think he probably should've gone in the first 10 picks," Turner told Vikings.com recently. "He probably should've gone at least in the first half of the first round, and then we're sitting there with an opportunity to get him when we did, it was a bonus to me."
There's no real telling if Bridgewater will end up starting Week 1. The battle between he, Cassel and Ponder's one of the biggest quarterback dramas out there. But if Turner's high on him, he at least stands a chance to nab the gig.
Even if he doesn't want to talk about it.
