Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater will be under center for the Miami Dolphins this weekend as Tua Tagovailoa is in concussion protocol for the second time this season.
To gear up for a potential playoff clincher, he’s decided to seek out some advice from those close to him.
Speaking with reporters Wednesday, Bridgewater said he had a “good talk” with two “good friends” who happen to be two of the most famous musicians of all-time.
“I had a good talk with my good friends Steve and Ray — Stevie Wonder and Ray Charles. They can see what’s going on,” he remarked.
Wonder, of course, is blind. So was Charles, who died in 2004. So … who knows what Bridgewater really meant here? But the Twitter replies sure have some theories.
Some believe it was a shot at the Dolphins’ medical team for missing Tagovailoa’s second concussion of the season. Others think it’s a jab at referees.
But another belief is he’s calling fans blind because Tagovailoa has actually been benched and the concussion is being as an excuse.

Nonetheless, he’s excited about the chance to try to clinch a playoff spot for Miami.
“I’m excited, man,” he said. “Football still means something to the guys in this locker room and the guys that are going out there Sunday. For the guys that are giving it their all, it means a lot. I’m looking forward to the opportunity.”
“You just gotta respect the game, man. When you respect the game, the game rewards you,” he added.
The Dolphins can clinch a playoff spot on Sunday with a win over the New England Patriots and a New York Jets’ loss or tie against the Seattle Seahawks, or a tie combined with a Jets’ loss and a Pittsburgh Steelers’ loss or tie against the Baltimore Ravens.
