Current Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater stops by the show to chat football and his rookie season.
The Minnesota Vikings have more confidence and optimism heading into this offseason than they did a year ago. They have two of the most important pieces in place in head coach Mike Zimmer and Teddy Bridgewater. Also, they improved in several areas from the past season. The Vikings have 12 free agents this offseason, but just one opening day starter.
Rex Ryan has faced plenty of calls for his ouster during another trying season for the Jets. After his big gamble in overtime against Minnesota went bust, he’s sure to hear some more.

Baylor’s Bryce Petty is probably on the outside looking in on the Heisman Trophy, but a trip to New York for the ceremony is well within reach.
Teddy Bridgewater may be one of the best quarterbacks in the nation, but his best bet to become Louisville’s first Heisman Trophy winner in school history will come from putting up huge numbers and seeing other candidates take a stumble.
Rutgers, which could have clinched its first-ever BCS Bowl berth last week if they had showed up in Pittsburgh, blew their chance for redemption despite having everything set up perfectly for a momentous “Knight.”
The feel around this game should be like 2006, when the Scarlet Knights upset the Cardinals, then the No. 3 team in the nation. Now, on Thursday night, Rutgers needs that same special moment created by the best atmosphere in program history.
Rutgers and Louisville are strikingly similar except for one essential item: Wins.
