The Yahoo sports story (READ FULL STORY HERE) says "Bridgewater tells ESPN he has imported the Vikings playbook into his game, letting him 'practice' against other teams to get a sense of how the defense will react.
"It helps because you get one more rep than you had in practice, actual practice," he said. "Any chance you get to take an extra rep or go the extra step, extra mile, it's going to be very beneficial transferring it to the field."
The habit isn't a new one for Bridgewater. He started doing this in college at Louisville, he says, using the now defunct NCAA game franchise. And the plan seems to have worked, seeing as he was drafted in the first round this year."
