    Bradford

    While Bradford is a servicable QB, he's not an elite QB. He holds on to the ball way to long. You could say that it's the offensive line, but he holds on to the ball, and over throws the long ball. This is not anger of us losing this game, this is after watching 7 games. I'm not sure what the solution is, but something needs to be done.

    Re: Bradford

    Brees looked serviceable during the first 3 years of his career, and he had twice the weapons Bradford had during that span. Not saying Bradford's guaranteed to be elite but hopefully he'll adjust once his reinforcements come into play.

    Re: Bradford

    He actually has been better with the deep ball but everytime he throws one i hold my beathe. And no he isnt elite, and like i said in previous post idk if he could ever be. But he is good... He would need the perfect scenario to be close to elite, and an elite qb doesnt need that

    Bradford

    I will have a real analysis on Bradford when he has all of his o-line intact for once. Barry Richardson has done well, I love the way Shelly smith played...

    Re: Bradford

    I agree he needs to improve but let's remember: We're getting offensive linemen off the street and our receivers wouldn't scare a pop warner team.

    Re: Bradford

    He holds onto the ball too long because we don't have receivers who can get open. what would you rather him do? Throw into coverage?

    Re: Bradford

    Have you ever stopped to think that maybe he holds onto the ball because he has no one to throw to? The camera only showed Bradford and the offensive line, not what he sees downfield.

    Re: Bradford

    exactly, can't throw to receivers that aren't open and expect a catch....unless it's a defender

    Some of it should be on Bradford since he has a habit of staring down on his receivers and sometimes holding the ball too long. At least he's diversifying his skills as a QB such as getting out of the pocket when it collapses. Heck he's done some sliding out of the pressure while staying in the pocket to extend the play. Our QB coach should refine his habit of staring down receivers and making reads on his WR's progressions.

    Bradford plays better when in a no huddle hurry up offense.

    Re: Bradford

    How in the heck are you pinning this on him? You think you should have done better in man coverage on Nelson and Cobb, you think he should have got more pressure on Rodgers?

    Re: Bradford

    when it was a 20-13 ballgame, all we needed was at least one incompletion on third down....never got it

    rush defense held, pass D...no man coverage, no win

    it wasn't bradford, the lack of receivers getting open will screw any team

    What's going to be done is the Rams will improve, Bradford will improve, and someday he'll get an OL that stays intact for more than a few games, and he'll have some recievers that will consistently get open.

    Bradford isn't going anywhere, and is the future of the Rams. That's just the reality of the situation.

    I'm not sure how anyone can disagree with you since you've watched 7 games.
