Teddy Bridgewater compared to fictional movie character

It's not been the easiest of time for former Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater. 

After going from the dead cert number one QB off the board in the 2014 NFL Draft, the former Cardinals play caller had a poor pro day and he looks like dropping out of the second round altogether.

Well this should provide some light relief for the 21-year old. He has been compared to a completely fictional man.

"I present you with the greatest QB comparison ever. An AFC North coach compared Bridgewater to...Willie Beaman. I'm not making this up," Bleacher Report’s draft expert Matt Miller tweeted earlier today.

This is brilliant for two reasons: A) Willie Beaman does not exist. He is purely an act of fiction, and B) Teddy Bridgewater is nothing like him at all.

Bridgewater is an intelligent, play calling, pocket passing quarterback that is a dilligent student of the game of football that spends hours dissecting tape.

On the other hand, Willie Beaman is a vain, cocky run first quarterback with his own music video - which you can see above - and has the nickname "Steamin'", which i wouldn't be surprised if he gave himself.

Anyone who has ever watched Any Given Sunday - if you haven't then why the hell not! - or watched a Bridgewater press conference,  will know that the two are completely at the opposite ends of the scale.

It's a good excuse to watch 'My Name Is Willie' and Al Pacino's famous rousing speech though.
