Bridgewater Says Willie Beamen Comparison Was Harsh
The talk around Teddy Bridgewater has been borderline silly during the draft season. After coming into the last College Football season as the number 1 quarterback, he tumbled down draft board after skinny leg issues among other odd issues.
One of the most off the wall comparisons was to Willie Beamen, a movie QB played by Jamie Foxx in Any Given Sunday. Today Teddy was asked about the most hurtful criticism and had this to say:
"I would say the comparison to Willie Beaman." -Bridgewater on the harshest criticism he received. #Vikings

I could see how being compared to a fake QB who had a personality not like yours, would be a problem. Teddy now has his chance to prove all the skeptics wrong in Minnesota.
