Former Carolina Panthers quarterback and now Denver Broncos quarterback Teddy Bridgewater is now speaking out against his former team and their practice habits during his one season with the franchise.
Appearing on the “All Things Covered” podcast with Patrick Peterson and Bryant McFadden, Bridgwater revealed how different practices with the Panthers were compared to ones he had been used to in years past.
“I’ll just say this, for Joe Brady’s growth, that organization, they’ll have to practice different things in different ways. One thing we didn’t do much of when I was there, we didn’t practice two minute, really. We didn’t practice red zone… You walk through the red zone stuff and then Saturday you come out and practice red zone, but you’d only get like 15 live reps. Guys’ reps would be limited.” – Teddy Bridgewater on the All Things Covered podcast.
McFadden was comp0letely shocked as he noted teams he’s played for will set aside a whole day a week to work specifically on the two-minute drill alone.
Bridgewater was traded to the Denver Broncos this offseason from the Panthers for late draft compensation.
He now gets a fresh start once again with a new team.
“New beginning, new opportunities and just an opportunity just to come in,” Bridgewater said, via the Broncos’ official website. “It’s a great football team, some great pieces here. And I think I have the opportunity to come in and fit right in with those guys.”
