Teddy Bridgewater will be under center for the Miami Dolphins this weekend as Tua Tagovaviloa is in the concussion protocol for the second time this season.

To prepare for a potential playoff winner, he decided to seek some advice from people close to him.

Speaking to reporters on Wednesday, Bridgewater said he had a «good conversation» 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.»

Wonder, of course, is blind. Also Charles, who died in 2004. So… who knows what Bridgewater really meant here. But the Twitter responses 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 that it is a blow to the referees.

But another belief is that he is calling the fans blind because Tagovailoa has actually been benched and is using the concussion as an excuse.

Nonetheless, he’s excited about the opportunity 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 going out on Sunday. For the guys who are giving it their all, it means a lot. I look forward to the opportunity…

«You just gotta respect the game, man. When you respect the game, the game rewards you.»
