Vikings coach Mike Zimmer spoke with the media Thursday at the scouting combine, and one big takeaway was a telling quote when asked about the evolution of quarterback Teddy Bridgewater:
"At the end of the day, if I come back next year, if I'm still here, what I want to say is, 'Man, Teddy really took over this offense. He was really in charge of everything he did here. He took charge of the league.' Whatever that means. If it's getting us in the right place, if it's throwing the ball more, if it's throwing the ball less. Just taking charge of this thing. It's going to be his baby eventually."
