  • Rich Gannon on Sam Bradford to RAMS.

    Heard this today on Sirius NFL Blitz talk show.

    Gannon: The RAMS have to many glaring holes to bring Bradford in and start him right away. O-line, TE and WR positions are lacking. Bradford's confidence would also be in jeopardy because he would take a beating running the RAMS offense.

    Please don't shoot the messenger....ME!

    You see, though, it doesn't matter what the Rams do...

    2008 - Rams don't take Ryan.

    The Media: "How can the Rams pass on a QB!!!"

    2009 - Rams don't take Sanchez.

    The Media: "How can the Rams pass on a QB!!!"

    2010 - Rams take Bradford.

    The Media: "How can the Rams take a QB!!!"

        It's funny to listen to Sirius NFL Radio from lunchtime on. Adam Schein, who is the lead host when Gannon is on, thinks the Rams would be crazy for passing on Suh. But on the very next show you've got Pat Kirwan who thinks Bradford should and will absolutely be the pick of the Rams in the first round.

          You know what I say? Who cares what the media says. I doubt any NFL GM does, that's for sure. Like I've said before if the Rams feel Bradford is the next Franchise QB and he has enough help on the Offense to run it effectively then I'm all for it.

            Not all that different from the various opinions expressed here by us "non professionals." Can't help but wonder if Billy and Spags already know who they want, or if they're still on the fence .. Surely there's one thing we won't be hearing from Billy and Spags: "We couldn't believe he was still there for us" - at least in round one anyway ..

              If Spagnuolo and Devaney have altered their board based on anything any media outlet has said I'll eat 8 year old socks with no salt and run naked through the streets.

              Only us fans even bother to get worried about any of the crap the media spews out. They LIVE to get viewers and listeners people. You have to try and change your stuff up or people won't listen because you keep sying the same things. They live to stir up controversy.

              No matter what the Rams do they will be criticized and called idiots and morons like every year...

              Rams draft Bradford:
              "How do you pass on the most dominant defensive lineman EVAR!!"
              "Bradford's going to get killed behind the Rams offensive line."
              "Bradford's going to get injured in the first game"

              Rams draft Suh:
              "Once again the Rams pass on a franchise quarterback for a defensive lineman."
              "Drafting Suh just won't get it done."
              "You need a quarterback to win in this league and the Rams continually fail to address that need."

              Rams trade down:
              "The Rams are so bad they need elite talent on their team to compete."
              "How could you pass on Suh, Mccoy, AND Bradford for<such and such>!"
              "Lol the Rams are stupid."

              Rams don't draft anyone:
              "OMG wtf!"

              How do you win?.....

                YES GUYS, and this is the same bull*** I am talking about too. It seems no matter what we do to help this team move forward, some superbowl losing QB ( LOL) no but seriously, some guy ( or even female) steps forward and says that is wasnt the right move or it was the wrong move.

                  HAHA!!!! That is so freakin' true. I have faith in Devaney and Spags not to give in to any pressure from the fans or the media. Remember the Avery controversy? The Maualuga vs Laurinaitis debate? The Weatherspoon trade? Fans were crying treason!!!

                  I will support whoever they pick 150%. Even Sam Bradford.

                    It's not going to end after the draft. Just look at this board. When the Rams sign a backup QB in Feeley, you'd have thought the front office had announced the disbanding of the franchise. You obviously can't pay a backup QB any money, blah blah blah. If they draft Bradford, it'll be the same all next season. But if Suh turns into a bust, history will show that nobody on this board wanted to draft him.

                        I fell the exact same way. Im sure DeSpags will choose the player that will be more effective to this team.

                              Sam Bradford is a future Pro-Bowler
                              by shroomysoup
                              As much as I like Suh, I have a feeling Bradford is going to be a great QB despite the shoulder injury. He could end up being like Peyton Manning except without the laser cannon. He still has a good arm though.

                              I hate this. Can we just draft both Suh and Bradford somehow? :|

                              What NFL QB does Sam Bradford resemble?

                              THE WATER COOLER:

                              From what you've seen of rookie QB Sam Bradford this season, which current or former NFL quarterback would you say his skill set most closely resembles?

                              JIM THOMAS:

                              He played at Oklahoma, he wears jersey No. 8, and he has a similar frame and similar accuracy. The comparisons to Troy Aikman (who finished his career at UCLA) are too numerous to overlook. So I guess we can expect three Super Bowl titles, too, eh?

                              BERNIE MIKLASZ:

                              Matt Ryan, the Atlanta quarterback. Both guys are tall and strong and accurate. They have similar body types. They have a similar demeanor. They aren't extroverted or flashy on the field. They aren't theatrical. Though personable as men and charismatic as athletes, they seem to have an aversion to self-promotion. They're all about putting the team first and that's a major reason why both became respected team leaders as soon as they took over as rookie starters. You can tell right away that they're calm, confident and in command. Nothing ever seems to bother them. They epitomize what quiet strength is all about.

                              BRYAN BURWELL:

                              He reminds me a little of Joe Montana for his nimbleness out of the pocket, and Troy Aikman as a big man in the pocket with great accuracy.

                              BILL COATS:

                              Bradford reminds me somewhat of Joe Montana, with his ability to throw accurately on the run. I also think his calm demeaner is reflective of Montana. Now, if Bradford could just win a bunch of Super Bowls, like Montana did...

                              JEFF GORDON:

                              He has always modeled himself after Troy Aikman and that is a pretty good comparison. Sam might be even better on the move than Troy was. Of course, he still must prove himself in the big games to measure up -- and he has a big opportunity to further define himself Sunday.

                              KEVIN WHEELER (Host of "Sports Open Line" on KMOX):

                              He reminds me of Peyton Manning. I thought so when he was playing at Oklahoma, I said so on-air in the lead-up to the draft and I've seen nothing since that would change my mind. They're about the same size (Manning is 6'5" 230 and Bradford is 6'4" 228), they're both accurate passers with strong arms and most importantly they're intelligent leaders who make things look easier than they really are.

                              That's not to say that I think he'll wind up doing what Manning has done over the years. He could but that's an awful lot to expect. Bradford has a long way to go to get to Manning's level but the rookie season Bradford is putting together is one of the best of all-time certainly makes it feel like anything is possible. Anything, that is, if he is surrounded by the kind of playmakers the Colts have had during Manning's career...

                              Sam Bradford: The Truth
                              by NJ Ramsfan1
                              We've beaten this topic to death. This board seems to have many who think the guy is terrible (which is laughable), but also has numerous apologists who are always looking to justify bad QB play. Today was an excellent example of why simply looking at statistics (which on paper are great) is not an adequate barometer of a guy's performance. Let me be the latest one to add my two cents in the hopes of lending some needed perspective to the argument.

                              If Sam Bradford can be summed up in one paragraph, it's this: He mirrors the inconsistency that characterizes the rest of this football team. Today was a perfect example of seeing both the good Bradford and the bad Bradford in the same game. He fumbled a snap which led to a score. He threw a pick 6. He overthrew an open Givens in the 2nd quarter for a sure TD. This is simply too much self-inflicted damage for a team to overcome. He also threw three TDs, involved many different receivers and led a spirited, if unsuccessful comeback. Like I said- INCONSISTENT. To become an upper echelon QB, he must eliminate his propensity for the critical error while building on the strengths that got him to where he is today.

                              I think anyone thinking or hoping Bradford is someday going to be on a par with Brady, Manning, Brees, Roethlisberger or Rodgers needs to recalibrate their expectations. If getting a guy like that were easy, EVERY team would have one. This is certainly not to say Sam Bradford cannot be a winner in this league or become a top 10 QB.

                              I said early this season that we will be able to more accurately assess Bradford as a QB at the end of NEXT season- when he has hopefully had a 2nd injury-free year under the same O-Coordinator and Head Coach. I have not wavered from that opinion.

                              I think the best thing we could do this draft is to get Sam Bradford. I have been watching him all through his college career. He can throw all over the feild wether it is a deep pass or a short pass and be very accurate. Also he is a very big leader on and off the feild.

                              This sounds like a guy who is excited about his supporting cast, confident, and ready to take the next step. if Bradford gets reasonable protection and time to operate, the sky's the limit.
