In today’s sign that the lead-up to the NFL draft lasts far, far too long, Matt Morris, the lead NFL draft analyst for Bleacher Report, shared a comparison of top quarterback prospect Teddy Bridgewater to Willie Beamen, the Jamie Foxx character from Oliver Stone’s football movie Any Given Sunday. It’s a fine comparison in that both Bridgewater and Beamen play quarterback. It sort of falls apart when you consider that, unlike Beamen, Bridgewater never looks to run, has probably never met Al Pacino and, you know, exists.
