The secret to New Orleans Saints’ quarterback’s success
Teddy Bridgewater has one trait that might be responsible for his talents
Alvin Kamara, the star running back of the New Orleans Saints, is known for walking to and from the Superdome on game days. Perhaps this is why he’s the star he is. Teddy Bridgewater, who was meant to be the backup to quarterback Drew Brees, has his own habit and, perhaps, this is why he has quickly risen to be the star he has in the absence of the first-stringer. Now that the secret’s out, though, there will undoubtedly be others looking to copy it.
Bridgewater travels to and from the Superdome on his bicycle. Instead of saving every ounce of energy for the game, he apparently has more than enough to spare – as he has repeatedly proven on the field – and prefers the bike ride as his time to start to put his mind in the game. So far, it appears to be working perfectly.
The quarterback who has led the Saints to straight victories since taking the field since Brees injured his hand three weeks ago let the cat out of the bag when talking to the press this week, stating, “If anyone wants to ride a bike with me I’m open to it, but you know, I enjoy my little ride to the stadium. It’s been a peaceful ride. I’m open to people riding with me though.”
With that kind of invitation, and given his celebrity status, it wouldn’t be surprising to see a trail of bikers following Bridgewater on October 27 when the Saints take on the Arizona Cardinals at home.
