    Should Rams be more concerned about Bradford?

    QUESTION OF THE DAY:

    When columnist Bernie Miklasz took the Rams and Sam Bradford to task Monday, fans were none too hesitant to pile on, especially regarding Bradford's shaky showing in Big D. Could the situation be as dire as these cynics suggest?

    How concerned should the Rams and their fans be about Bradford's play?

    JIM THOMAS, Post-Dispatch football writer:

    If you were grading Bradford's performance in three preseason games, he'd get a "B" for Indy, an "A" for Kansas City, and a "D" for Dallas.

    There are obvious issues on the offensive line and wide receiver, and Bradford is working with his third offensive system in three years. Keep in mind, too, that Steven Jackson didn't get one touch against the Cowboys.

    But in Year 3 for Bradford in the NFL, perhaps fans are getting impatient and feel it's time. It doesn't help that Austin Davis is running around making plays in the fourth quarter every week, albeit against 3rd-teamers.

    BRYAN BURWELL, Post-Dispatch Sports Columnist:

    I stand by what I said in Tuesday's Post-Dispatch column that it is too difficult to make any hard and fast evaluation of Bradford up until now, because when the coaching staff was concentrating on the passing game against Kansas City, Bradford looked sharp. And when he was guiding them on that one long drive against Dallas, I had no complaints.

    The trouble with rash preseason evaluations is that you never know what you're looking at when teams don't game plan against specific defenses, or you aren't sure what the coaches' play-calling objectives might be.

    I am not saying I'm ready to induct him into Canton just yet, but I am not hand-wringing, either.

    JEFF GORDON, STLtoday.com sports columnist:

    That game looked eerily familiar to Rams fans. Opposing rushers blasted into the backfield unblocked and Bradford came unglued. It's fair to wonder if Sam is still fragile after his 2011 beatdown.

    Look for Brian Schottenheimer to reconnect Bradford with Danny Amendola in the preseason finale and set some groundwork for the season opener. This team needs to turn back the clock to 2010 and feature a lot of Steven Jackson and a lot of quick hit passing to get Bradford back into a groove. If that happens, then the Rams can branch out from there.

    KATHLEEN NELSON, Post-Dispatch sportswriter:

    They should be less concerned than the naysayers are because he looked much better in the first and second games than he did Saturday. I think they should be more concerned about the play of the offensive line, which is the building block for both Sam and the running game.

    After this season, it's fair to start making a judgement. Three seasons is enough time to show development. Until then, it's not fair especially when looking at preseason play.

    Another in the PD's continuing series...

    "We don't want to write-off Bradford, but we sure like catering to those who do."

    Re: Should Rams be more concerned about Bradford?

    3 different systems in 3 years, is there a great qb who has had to go through that and played great every year? Not only over a 3 year period but his first 3 years in the league. He should have no problems he should improve every year, really??? Maybe just maybe the guy deserves a little break on that one.

    Its all speculation and a waste of time worrying about it...from what I saw in Dallas, Bradford will not last the season. Wouldnt be a bad idea to just play the second string QBs and play him in 2014
