Todd McShay says that Louisville QB Teddy Bridgewater's pro day was the first time he's ever seen a quarterback throw worse in an exhibition than he did in games.
"It's designed for you to have success, it's supposed to be sort of a dog and pony show," McShay said. "No defense, no coverage to read, no pass rushers, in shorts and a t-shirt, throwing to your own receivers, in a scripted workout that you've been rehearsing days in and day out. There's no excuse, no reason." McShay has attended over 60 pro days, so his bafflement is not insignificant. The analyst cautions that the greatest -- by far -- pro day he's ever seen was JaMarcus Russell's. Before Bridgewater's pro day, McShay said Matt Ryan's was the most underwhelming he'd ever seen. Here at Rotoworld, where we've refused to drop Teddy B from the No. 1 QB rank, we'd caution evaluators to pay heed to his last point, rather than the more salacious topic of Bridgewater's isolated struggles in an almost meaningless "dog and pony show."
