3. Teddy Bridgewater taking hits

The run blocking has been so poor in recent weeks that people seem to almost be forgetting about the poor pass blocking.

Ask Teddy Bridgewater if he is entirely satisfied with the pass protection.

Well of course Teddy would never publicly rip his blockers but behind-the-scenes I have to believe Bridgewater has expressed at least a little concern.

So far Bridgewater has been able to function in the face of all the pressure being sent his way, and function very well as a matter of fact, but that doesn’t take away the fear you get in the pit of your gut every time Bridgewater is hit.

Bridgewater is hit a lot and that’s a problem.

How many hits can Bridgewater take? He’s a tough guy but everyone has a limit.
