Once fearful of Bridgewater getting 'beat up,' Zimmer glad QB learning on job

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Matt Cassel's presence allowed the Minnesota Vikings to open the season behind a quarterback with 87 career games, and the experience of seemingly any situation that might occur, tucked under the white belt on his uniform. Behind Cassel, 32, was rookie first-round pick Teddy Bridgewater, the hopeful long-term solution at the position for Minnesota. Bridgewater...

PJD’s Week 15 Recap: How To Become The New Lions

I don’t know, maybe that’s not fair. The Lions of yesteryore have and were completely awful. I mean, they are the only team in the modern era to have gone 0-16. That’s super bad! No one else has done that in recent history. Lions, you’ll always have that! So, no, the Vikings aren’t THAT bad, but boy oh boy, did they look pretty bad on Sunday when they ended up losing 14...

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater named top-10 rookie in 2014 class

On Sunday, Johnny Manziel will make his much-anticipated NFL debut.

WATCH: Vikings rookie Teddy Bridgewater ices the New York Jets in overtime

Athletes can grow and improve the same as any craftsman, but I’ve always felt that one thing you can’t learn is how to perform in the clutch. You either have it or you don’t; you either want the ball when the game is on the line or you don’t. I’m getting the feeling that Minnesota Vikings rookie quarterback Teddy Bridgewater wants the ball. On Sunday Bridgewater led the...

Minnesota Vikings: Zimmer, team not giving up on season

Despite entering Sunday 4-7, and practically eliminated from playoff contention (they aren’t technically eliminated, but the chances are very slim to make the playoffs at this point), Mike Zimmer and the Minnesota Vikings have not seemed to give up on their season. With some fans whispering the need to “throw the season away” for a top draft pick, Zimmer wants no part in that...

WATCH: Carolina Panthers defense laughs at Teddy Bridgewater’s snap count

The Carolina Panthers may have gotten whooped by the Minnesota Vikings this week, but it wasn’t all bad news. Check out this clip of Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater making a pathetic attempt to draw the Panthers defense off-sides on a fourth and three call: Rookie quarterbacks are just the worst.

Vikings Have a Block Party in Win Over Panthers

Since the season began, the Vikings did not look like a team that was likely going to make the playoffs this year. They may very well have a losing record for the second consecutive season and fourth in the past five seasons overall, but they continue to show progression and look to have many solid pieces to build around. They showed plenty of positives in their 31-13 win over the...
