It won’t be long before we’re watching Teddy Bridgewater throw TD passes in real NFL games. In the meantime, here’s a little clip of Teddy throwing a TD to WR Rodney Smith during Saturday night’s scrimmage at Blakeslee Field.
It ain’t much, I grant, but it’s still Teddy Bridgewater throwing a TD. The play came to cap off a two-minute drill where Teddy went 6-for-7, his only incompletion being a spike to stop the clock. Sounds like Teddy already has command of those hectic two-minute situations.
Not a surprise. We know Teddy has ice water in his veins. Nothing rattles the young man.
The overall passing stats for Saturday night looked like this:
Passing stats from Saturday night's practice: Cassel (20-for-31, 2 INTs), Bridgewater (12-for-20, 1 TD, INT) + no Ponder passes.

I’m told Ponder looked pretty good holding the clipboard. It didn’t seem too heavy for him. His arms didn’t get too tired. Offseason weight lifting pays off.
The big question this morning is, how close is Teddy to knocking off Matt Cassel? According to Norv Turner, preseason will play a big part in making that determination. So make sure you tune into those preseason games. Or, better yet, buy a ticket and head on down to TCF Bank Stadium. Don’t forget to pick up a t-shirt while you’re there.
