all of which you said would take the Vikings to the Super Bowl. Not one is even wearing a Vikings Jersey now.

<quoted text> LIke Who doesn't know McCarthy fixed Aaron's mechanics Why did it take three year's ? Rodgers was drafted as the 24th pick of the first round. Almost every QB drafted in the first round starts, Maybe you didn't know that stat. If Rodgers got to start even the next year maybe that superbowl win would have come a year sooner & maybe they could have had Back to Back Super Bowls. I read everything ! don't be knocking my resea rch.
It takes that long to fix mechanics. If you put a guy in right away, under pressure he reverts to what has worked in the past. Tebow, Ponder, TJ, etc. Takes time practicing the new mechanics without pressure in your face so that it becomes the new natural after having done it a certain way for 12 years.

True Learning the system & getting your mechanics down without pressure in your face is a big key in the QBs development I agree with that.

1. Size/measurables:
Bridgewater measured in at 6-foot-2, 214 pounds at the NFL combine. At his pro day, he was six pounds lighter, at 208 pounds.

There are only five active NFL quarterbacks who are listed at 208 pounds or lighter. Of those five, only Seattle's Russell Wilson is a starter.

Bridgewater also has the smallest hands (9.25 inches) measured of any of the top QB prospects. There have been 39 quarterbacks since 2008 who have had a hand size of 9.25 inches or smaller at the NFL combine. Of those players, only 18 percent have started half of an NFL season (eight games) and none has made the Pro Bowl.

In comparison, of the 36 players with a hand size larger than or equal to Johnny Manziel’s (9.88 inches) since 2008, 31 percent started at least eight NFL games and four have already made the Pro Bowl.

Given Bridgewater’s below-average hand size and his lack of experience in cold temperatures (he did not start a single game in freezing temperatures while at Louisville), teams may question his ability to grip the football in cold weather.
==========
So. Zero successes. Well, maybe we wish real hard, everything will turn out.
