Bridgewater steps into the starting role right out of the gate. He proves to be worth first round pick that the Vikings spent on him and he makes the most of his opportunity. While he won’t throw for 4000 yards in a Norv Turner offense, Bridgewater will have plenty of opportunity to work the field. He’ll beat anyone that Vikings have lined up under center for the last three seasons and could even perform well enough to be a solid backup or QBBC this season.
Bridgewater struggles to make it to the next level. Matt Cassel begins the season as the starter and the Vikings turn to Adrian Peterson to carry the load again. Bridgewater is Minnesota’s future, so he’ll see the starting lineup before the season is over, but he is brought along slowly and he assume more of a ‘game manager role’. Bridgewater finishes the season after showing very little and leaving people asking just what kind of quarterback he really is.
Bridgewater isn’t known for his rocket arm, but in a Norv Turner offense, that should be all that he needs. With Adrian Peterson being the workhorse, Bridgewater will be free to progress at his own pace. With veteran receivers like Greg Jennings and Jerome Simpson to bring him alone and rookie Cordarrelle Patterson to stretch the field, Bridgewater has plenty of tools at his disposal. Bridgewater should perform well during his rookie season, but probably won’t set the league on fire this year. He’ll be a good backup QB and might perform well enough to be a spot starter from time to time.
