The Minnesota Vikings drafted Teddy Bridgewater after he had a horrible pro day, but that did not stop the Vikings from getting their man. Norv Turner the offensive coordinator and his son both evaluated Bridgewater, and his son thought Bridgewater amazed the Vikings staff at his private work-out.
“We didn’t think he put forth his best effort on his Pro Day, but we weren’t sounding alarms like the whole world was at the time,” Scott Turner said. “That [private] workout answered those questions for us, positively.”
Well a year later, Norv Turner has a message for the Bridgewater doubters. Noting that one of the drills Bridgewater struggled with at his Pro Day involved throwing passes over upraised brooms, Turner said anyone who downgraded Bridgewater over that is a fool.
“Someone should take those brooms and shove them up someone’s backside,” Turner told ESPN.
I love Norv Turner hahaha
