Teddy Bridgewater = Jason Campbell
I see a lot of the same things that Campbell does on the field in Bridgewater, and it should be worrisome. Bridgewater is a nice athlete who uses his running ability when he should to pick up first downs. But the play style is conservative; his efficiency is a result of always throwing to the wide open guy 4 years downfield, instead of the one open 25 yards down the middle if he makes an excellent throw. You want a smart QB, but you also need a good one. In fact, if you’re going to spend a first round pick, you need a great one. Maybe it’s a product of the system, but his arm strength and accuracy seem good, not great. As we saw with Campbell, or even a guy like David Garrard, not throwing interceptions shouldn’t be the priority. It doesn’t necessarily make your team any better if you don’t turn around a make a great play when you need one.
There were a few more comparisons if you care to read thru the article.
