Re: Rams at the midpoint: Some progress, some problems
You never have to say your sorry... a lot of people think I make no sense. Do all receivers run at the same speed? No so how can a QB know when a particular receiver is going to be in the right spot if he does not establish timing? The QB does not drop back and wait 1.4 seconds and fire the ball to where all receivers should be... if you think that then we don't need to talk about this one any further. It takes timing and chemistry with each receiver IMO.

The chemistry is starting to develop between quarterback Sam Bradford and rookie wide receiver Chris Givens, and the result has added big-play potential to the Rams' offense.
"I think the more we've worked together, the more comfortable I've become with him out there," Bradford said. "And I think that's been pretty apparent the past couple of weeks in the big plays that he's been able to make."
Bradford and Givens didn't work much together during the preseason, but as Givens' reps increased a couple of weeks into the regular season, they started getting in sync.
"He comes and gets me and he's like, 'Hey, I've got this, this and this. Let's get these after practice.' If it's not right, he stays until we get it right. So we've spent a lot of time together and I think that's one of the reasons that we've developed the chemistry that we have."
“I think that’s what separates the guys that make the jump quickly, and the guys that it takes a little while,” Rams offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer said. “You have to spend the time getting on the same page as the quarterback, and there’s only one way to do that.”
And that’s what Givens has done, working early and late with quarterback Sam Bradford to help develop their timing and develop a chemistry.
