TFD: Softer upcoming pass defenses mean its time for Vikings' Bridgewater to make his mark

All it takes these days is two bad games by a rookie quarterback to make us question whether he is going to be the right guy to lead a team for the next decade. We freely admit we have some concerns about Teddy Bridgewater at this point — most of them similar to what Patrick Reusse wrote recently, in that he doesn’t seem to do one thing, physically, great. Instead, Bridgewater will be relying on intangibles, which largely means football intelligence mixed with poise and presence. After three NFL starts, he’s not there yet — nor should he be. But we should also note this: those last...

Rudolph feels good, could be on practice field soon

Kyle Rudolph was in the Vikings locker room this afternoon, and the injured tight end took a couple of minutes between digging in on some barbecue — which smelled like what I imagine heaven smells like — and taking a quick shower to chat with us about his recovery from sports hernia surgery. “I feel good.

I guess I’m independent now,” Rudolph said with a smile. “I can take care of myself, which is always good after a surgery.” Rudolph had surgery two weeks ago, a couple days after the Week 3 loss to the Saints. After he was...
