  • Sam Bradford

    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.

    The Question on Bradford is his health. However i think due to his newly gained muscle, it will help his injury problem, and allow him to take a hit. I agree I think Bradford will be a very good QB in this league, and i hope we can sign him up!

      The questions are:

      - Can he take a hit (because, if he plays for the Rams, he will...often)?
      - Can he remain healthy?
      - Can he handle A LOT of pressure (he had great protection in college)?

      I've said it before, and I'll keep saying it, given the questions about ALL of the QBs in this draft, I think it is definately "reaching" to take any of them as #1 in the draft.

      If we take Bradford, there's a very good chance he won't be able to make an impact for us for another year or so (if at all). He won't get much help from our receiving corp or our OL or TEs. I hope I'm wrong, I just don't think so. I'd rather take Suh, and a QB at 33. Gve me an instant impact player with the #1 pick, not just another project.
      That's my story, and I'm sticking to it!!

        Re: Sam Bradford

        Even if Suh is the greatest DT to ever play the game, is he going to score touch downs for us because THATS what we need most. Even if you dont like Bradford, you have to recognize that the QB position is far more important than a DT. If you look at tape from last year our inability to stop the run or lack of pass rush CONTRIBUTED to our losses, but the MAIN reason we lost so much is because we cant SCORE. A QB will help far more in that department than a DT.

        I hope we draft Bradford and get his NFL career started right here in St.Louis.

        GO RAMS!!!

          How many TDs do QBs score by their lonesome?

          Just some minor rhetorical food for thought.

            I think you will agree that a QB is more involved in scoring TDs than a DT which was the point.

              Yes. But it still takes more than a QB to score TDs. If we burn $80 million on Bradford, we are forced to burn our 2nd and 3rd rounders on offensive skill players because our current offensive supporting cast is that subpar, leaving us to take only a smattering of low talent defenders on Day 3 to fix a unit that is qualitatively in the bottom 3rd of the league at the moment.

              This organization is not in a position to draft a 1st Round quarterback and hope to succeed.

                    Re: Sam Bradford

                    We should of got one of the free agent WR's so if we do get a QB he has atleast one guy to go to. Or trade there second round draft pick and a player or to for a good WR, like Brandon Marshell

                      How come our receivers don't get any credit....We don't have to spend big money on a WR, I think our current receiving corp is just fine and all have room to grow and get better. With a year in the same system under their belt for the first times in their career, it should be interesting to see what happens.

                        Re: Sam Bradford

                        McNabb would be the better route to go. He's a proven QB with at least 5 good years left in him, then the Rams can pick Suh with the #1. The Rams were horrible on offense last year (outside of Steven Jackson), however, they were equally as terrible on the defensive side of the ball. Bradford concerns me as far as his health issues, he's basically an option quarterback. How will that tranlate in the NFL? Even Vick would probably make more sense that Bradford.
                        Bradfords pro day will tell alot, I'll cross my fingers if the Rams go the Bradford route, in the hopes that he'll will indeed be the right QB and player to turn the Rams fortunes around.

                            Maybe it's Avery's catastrophic "dropsies" plague. Maybe it's Robinson's fragility. Maybe its the fact that Steven Jackson is probably our best receiver. Maybe its the fact that we seem to be afraid to throw a pass longer than 10 yards. Maybe its the low-round bargain-basement talent level of every receiver not named Avery.

                            Maybe its because we don't have a coherent offensive system. Maybe we should wait on training a QB until it dawns on us that Pat Shurmur's vaunted offensive system is the equivalent of the Emperor's New Clothes.

                              Maybe its that you don't have a clue what you're even talking about nor any insight to what Shurmur's offensive scheme is. Nor do know the talent level of our current crop of receivers. How about you give Gibson some credit. Came in midseason and was an impact player against arguably the best team in the NFC at the time in the Saints. Seeing as just about every Ram's player went down last year Im not ready to credit Robinson as fragile just yet.

                              Give guys a year in a system and with the team before throwing out judgements. After this year if Robinson goes down, Shurmur hands the ball off to Jackson every second play, and there is no marked improvement ill let you go to town with your negativity like im sure youll probably do regardless...

                                Why I think Sam Bradford should be our guy
                                by RockinRam




                                First off, I am not an Oklahoma Sooner fan. On the contrary, I am a UT (Texas) fan, which makes it quite of a surprise that I like Bradford so much.



                                Now let's get down to business.


                                In this opinionated argument, I'm not going to harp on Suh. I'm going to stay closely to Bradford.

                                Okay, first point.

                                Devaney and Spags are trying to remake this franchise into their own philosophy and dynasty. In order to do that, they need a "fresh" start. And by fresh start it means setting the future for the most important position the field. The QB. In this perspective, ignoring everything else, Sam Bradford comes in to this team giving the Rams a new identity. It's the start of a new decade, and it should be the start of a new decade of Ram's football. We ended the last decade on a horrible note, stats wise, and it's time to start anew. Bradford coming in gives us that fresh start. No matter what people say about Suh, a fresh QB gives fans and the organization a much needed rejuvinator than a DT would ever give.


                                Second point

                                We are trying to run a West Coast Offense. And by what that means, we are not going to be consistently running huge pass plays, pass plays that require 50 yard bombs. We are running a timing offense, backed by a ground and pound running game led by Steven Jackson.

                                And Sam Bradford would excel in our offense. Why you ask?

                                Because,

                                1) Bradford excels in the short and medium pass routes. His accuracy in these departments are spot-on elite, and he has enough zip to be solid in the WCO.

                                2) He knows how to develop timing with his receivers. That is why the 2008 Oklahoma offense was so prolific. Bradford's timing with his receivers was insane. He is an amazingly smart QB who has great touch, feel, and timing to win in the NFL.

                                That is why he would succeed in our offense. A WCO is based on timing between the QB and WR, and Bradford would wreck havoc once he gets the timing down with our young WR's.


                                Third point

                                More of why Bradford is a close to perfect fit for our scheme.

                                Bradford is not a gun-slinger. That's been determined. He has above average arm strength, but he is by no means a Derek Anderson-Jamarcus Russell type QB.

                                But that's better for Bradford. You know why?

                                Because I would take a precision QB over a gun-slinging QB anyday of the week.


                                Let's compare Bradford and other similar QB's (For example a young Marc Bulger) to a sniper. A sniper is patient, he doesn't make foolish decisions. He intelligently picks his target, and once he does, he delivers to his target with precision and timing. Snipers excel.

                                Quarterbacks like Derek Anderson and Jamarcus Russell are gun-slingers. They can be compared to a shotgun. Shotguns aren't very...

                                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? :|

                                We need Sam Bradford back next season
                                by chucknbob
                                I came to this realization while eating breakfast this morning....

                                Most QB prospects are busts. Even those that turn out to be good aren't great their first season. Rarely do you see a good starting caliber QB become available on the open market, so our best bet is to roll the dice on a rookie and hope we don't get one of those busts.

                                So here's my argument, Bradford has proven to be a good QB when healthy. Our team is to the point where a good QB could make us a legitimate playoff contender. We need Bradford back because he has a relatively high floor, he's proven he can play at the NFL level. We can't let a good team like the Rams be led by the next Geno Smith, Ryan Leaf, or Vince Young. We then can take our best prospect and let him develop. When/if Bradford goes down, we're in the same boat we would be in anyway.

                                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.

                                Again I'm really impressed with his humility and room for even greater improvement. I don't think this guy will ever be satisfied with his progress until he gets a 158.3 rating season. Wouldn't it be great if he actually achieved that? ...
