Master Tesfatsion: Vikings' best arm? It's the rookie

  • Updated: July 7, 2014 - 8:14 PM

Every Mon­day morn­ing dur­ing the offseason, Vi­kings writ­er Master Tesfatsion takes four ques­tions from Twitter for a week­ly mail­bag using the #VikingsST hashtag. Here is a sam­ple:

Q Word is that Bridgewater has ob­serv­a­bly the best arm of the 3 QBs in camp, do you a­gree with that?

A Word is bond. Bridgewater has looked very im­pres­sive up to this point and there’s a no­tice­able dif­fer­ence when he throws the ball com­pared to Matt Cassel and Chris­tian Ponder. The touch has al­ways been there but his pass­es don’t flut­ter out of his hands. It’s a smooth, quick re­lease that even the un­trained eye will tell in train­ing camp that Bridgewater throws a bet­ter ball than Ponder and Cassel.

As of­fen­sive co­or­di­na­tor Norv Tur­ner men­tioned dur­ing min­i­camp last month, Bridgewater’s deep ball has been sur­pris­ing­ly good. The big­gest is­sue has ac­tu­al­ly been over­throw­ing, not underthrowing, at this point. This will be the big­gest po­si­tion bat­tle in train­ing camp and the win­ner will have nice set of weapons around him in what should be an ex­cit­ing offense to watch this year
