    Tale Of The Tape: Teddy Bridgewater Or Mitch Leidner?

    The Minnesota Vikings and Gophers both enter football seasons this year that are full of potential. The Vikings are coming off a division title and looking to make a playoff run. The Gophers are hoping to be contenders in the Big Ten West.

    In both cases, the Vikings and Gophers are likely to go as far as their quarterbacks will take them. Both Teddy Bridgewater and Mitch Leidner give you reasons to be optimistic. They also give you reasons to shake your head in frustration.

    So if you had to choose, which quarterback would you rather have for your team? The answer isn’t as clear cut as one might think.
