    I feel sorry for Bradford.

    I really do. This team makes him look bad. I see a great QB in the future yet his team does nothing to help him out. Dropped passes. An offensive line getting man handled by a 4 man rush. Defense does nothing.


    Yet, somehow its always his fault.

    The offensive line has a much blame as the defense.

    Today's debacle is not on Sams' shoulder. It starts with the coaching staff and is across al facets of the team. Nobody stood out today in a positive light. But I do not feel sorry for Sam Bradford. Please.

    I do, however, feel sorry for the legion of Ram fans around the world that are anxiously awaiting good sound winning football. Perhaps today was a blip on that journey. But it was an UGLY BLIP!!!!

    Re: I feel sorry for Bradford.

    I've never felt Sam would be a GREAT QB. I saw a decent QB that should have been a mid 1st to 2nd rounder. I still think he's that. You can win in the league with that type of QB. He is in the Phillip Rivers, Eli, Flacco (the last 2 are NOT elite despite SB wins) tier at best & Alex Smith, Carson Palmer, Ponder at worst. No need to replace him unless there is an elite prospect available in the draft or Aaron Rogers becomes a FA.

    happiness doesn't just lie solely in money, that's BS

    plenty of NFL players end up broke anyway

    those that are smart with their money earn it since MANY people have NO CLUE how to use their money

    after every loss players just don't go: "aw man...ah well i gots LOTSA MONEH!!"

    at least the ones that are in the nfl for more than a year or two

    good players are pissed after a loss, are driven by it, and work to get better from it

    bradford is set with money, so he simply doesn't need to worry about it since i'm assuming he's smart with it

    but happiness lies elsewhere too,

    i know for myself i'm not solely money driven, i HAVE to like what i do

    and that's why i'm in college and not just working

    Think you are missing my point. I stand firm. I do not feel "sorry" for any pro athlete.

    Well, it was basically inevitable. Bradford did not have a great game, and the pressure, the sacks, the hurries, and the hits got to him, by my gosh, how could they not? He was absolutely brutalized, yet he stood in there like a man and did the best he could IMO. When he did get some time, he was repaid by drops, lots of them. At one point, I think there were three in a row.

    I think it's safe to say I felt bad for Sam.

    Exactly, because both sides are guilty of focusing on him too much. People complain about Bradford criticisms that come after a game in which there were bigger culprits behind the loss, and yet here we have a new thread before the game is even over defending him against claims few if anyone had made at this point.

    Got it....this was an organizational debacle.....not any one player. I suppose it would be easier to take if it came down to just one guy but geez, it was all over the place......top to bottom.

    Re: I feel sorry for Bradford.

    I do too. Don't care what anyone says, our recieving core is a bunch of guys that have proven nothing in the NFL, save a few games. This youth movement may be great, long term, but for now it's definitely not. We have some guys that MAY be really good some day, and a whole lot of potential, but nothing proven on the field. Ditto the RBs. You want to beat the Rams, get to Bradford. The Cowboys proved that today big time. If the Rams had a true #1 receiver, we wouldn't be having this conversation. Pairing that with a weak run game just makes it worse. I haven't given up hope, but I'm afraid it's going to be a long season.

    Re: I feel sorry for Bradford.

    I agree with you mostly. The only thing I see differently is about the #1 receiver part. We have enough potential talent that we can spread the ball around and make it difficult for teams to scheme us. By mid season it will gel. My question is why aren't we using more of players? Why isn't Bailey getting on the field? I think he has better hands than Austin could use that on 3rd down. Does Stacy look that bad or is still hurt?
