    Scruffy Bradford Not Throwing INT's

    Scruffy Bradford not throwing INTs

    BY JIM THOMAS
    Wednesday, November 17, 2010

    What's the deal with that scruffy beard St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford is sporting these days?

    "A couple of the guys are going along with the ‘no-shave November,' and they asked me to be a part of it," Bradford said. "So I feel like it's something I need to do."

    Bradford also has a "no-interception November" going. In fact, he hasn't thrown an interception since the fourth quarter of the Rams' Oct. 10 defeat in Detroit. That's four games-plus without a pick. So what's the deal with that?

    "I think just understanding that I don't have to force things, that I can take what the defense is going to give me, and keep the chains moving," Bradford said.

    Perhaps a bit superstitious, Bradford didn't seem anxious to talk about the streak. In fact, he said he doesn't know how many passes he has thrown without an interception.

    "No, and I really don't care to," he said.

    It's 138. He's nine passes away from passing Chris Miller for third place on the Rams' list for interception-free streaks. Miller went 146 attempts without an INT in a streak that began in 1994 for the Los Angeles Rams and ended in 1995 with the St. Louis Rams.

    Marc Bulger holds the franchise record with 249 passes without an interception, spanning the 2005 and '06 seasons. Roman Gabriel is second with 206 in 1968 and '69.

    The NFL record? Cleveland's Bernie Kosar went 308 passes without an interception in 1990 and '91.

    The fact that a rookie quarterback is even being mentioned with Rams all-time record holders for interception-free streaks is amazing IMO, then again, Bradford is amazing.

    Let's take Kosar down! Sam should keep the beard until he throws a pick, or until he can't fasten his chin strap, whichever comes first.

    This is what I love reading about. Because you know he's only going to keep getting better and better. This year its 4 games (so far) what about next year, or when he's really in his prime in 3 or 4? Makes me excited to be fan

    It's almost like he decided "Hey, this INT stuff isn't all that great. I think I'll stop."
