    Bradford, Brees and Aikman first 2 FULL seasons

    Just look it up and look at the weapons each had and look at their coaching staffs.

    Aikman(1989&1990)-4328 passing yards, 20 TD/36 INT (26 Games started)
    Brees(2002&2003)- 5392 passing yards, 28TD/31 INT (27 Games started)
    Bradford(2010&2011)-5676 passing yards, 24TD/21INT (26 Games started)

    Very interesting statistics--not to mention somewhat relieving. Not that those statistics prove anything: whether Sam will be as great as either of those QBs, only time will tell. Regardless, it's refreshing to see. He was never a lost cause in my mind, but he has, throughout this season, kinda scared me (and many others).

    No! I refuse to believe it! Sam is an all time bust and will never amount to the piece of paper that will be used to send him on his way out of town! Cut Bradford, draft Luck, and while we're at it, fire and cut everyone!

    And Brees played so bad that the Chargers drafted Eli Manning 1st overall. What does that tell you about Bradfords play this season?
    It's true that he could be a good QB, a great QB like those other two even. It's just strange that some people on here don't think he needs to prove it?

    It tells me the Chargers made the same mistake that many Rams fans are wanting to repeat.......getting rid of a talented young QB because he wasn't All-Pro after 2 seasons.

    Good thing the Lions was more patient with Joey Harrington then.
    Chargers saw a draft pick not delivering and acted on it. They wanted to win you see.Turned out they could have stuck with him, but the odds didn't suggest that.

    And even tough Bree beat the odds and went All pro the Chargers still ended up with a pro bowler of their own (3 actually). So calling it a mistake might be pushing it

    Re: Bradford, Brees and Aikman first 2 FULL seasons

    The problem is, is that people want results now. Chris Long was labeled a bust by many fans after 2 seasons. Now many are going to call Sam Bradford a bust. I think its because the Rams are used to having many failed drafts. So once they see that the first 2 seasons a player doesn't perform well, they are going to assume that from past drafts that they are busts from that point.

    He played so bad in San Diego?

    The guy had over 12,000 passing yards and 79 TD as a Charger. He only had one season that could be constituted as "bad", his second one.

    If that's awful, I know about 25 teams in this league that wish they had a QB playing that poorly.

    Trevor, the problem is a mix of what you stated and the fact that fans by nature have a "flavor of the moment" mentality, where they often tend to forget how good they have it and let their mind wander in the "what if" scenarios.

    I have no doubts Luck has potential to be a good QB... A VERY good one. Know who else I feel this way about? Sam Bradford.

    What I said was that they drafted Eli Manning because Brees played bad. Which is true? That has nothing to do with his entire Charger career. That is kind of the point with this thread. Brees started out poorly but became a great QB.

    Yeah Brees won a Super Bowl so who was the real winner? Also Bree's got injured on the last game of the year. So they didn't want to take a chance and hope his elbow was fine.

    Wonder how many sacks did those two QBs took their first two seasons? Hope it's similar to Bradfords because it's a scary thought seeing him walk the path to David Carr.

    And while I love Philip Rivers (my son played against him in high school) exactly how many Super Bowls has he led the Chargers to? Heck, how many play-off games?

    It was a mistake.
