Are the Bridgewater rave reviews on target? Dan Leberfeld

Not sure where this is coming from.

I saw a report that stated, “Apparently, Teddy Bridgewater looks fantastic at OTAs.”

After the Jets’ first open OTA, on May 22, Bridgewater received rave reviews. It’s all over the internet.

I must have been watching a different practice.

In that practice, he had one superb pass, a connection with rookie tight end Chris Herndon down the right seam.

This was an excellent play.

But aside from this, he was okay, nothing special. He actually threw a pick to linebacker Kevin Pierre-Louis.

On March 29, the second OTA, he struggled with accuracy.

Look, I’m not looking to denigrate Bridgewater with this blog – he’s a solid QB and an even better person.

And actually, it’s unfair to criticize his work in these practices. For goodness sake, the guy hardly played the last two years, and is now in a new offense with new teammates. These spring practices aren’t for style points, they are for teaching, learning, chemistry and working out the kinks.

I just don’t know where all this hype is coming from.

Maybe I need new glasses.
