LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – Ron Turner has a bad football team at Florida International. A very bad team.

But Ron Turner knows good quarterback play. He coached Illinois to the Sugar Bowl.  He directed an NFL offense when Erik Kramer threw 29 touchdown passes for the Chicago Bears.

Turner brings his awful FIU team to Papa John's Cardinal Stadium when the Panthers play Louisville at noon Saturday.

On Tuesday, Turner was asked for his thoughts on Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater on a conference call of coaches from Conference USA. This is what Turner said:

Q: What makes Teddy Bridgewater such a productive quarterback?

Turner: "Everything. He is a football player. He is smart, instinctive, accurate. He leads. When you throw on the film and watch somebody play, you know that quarterback is in charge. Sometimes you see that and sometimes you don't see that.

"You put Bridgewater's film on and you see that quarterback is in charge. There's nothing he can't do. He can throw. He can run. He can get them out of bad plays. He can get them into good plays. He's a hell of a football player. He's very instinctive, very natural. You can tell he is a leader. He's as good as I've seen in a long time. He's a good player."

Q: Do you see anything from Bridgewater that is NFL quality?

Turner: "Oh yeah. All the things I said. He's talented. He's a leader. He's smart. He's a good football player. There is no question he has NFL abilities in my mind."
