  • Does Bulger being cut make Bradford MORE or LESS likely, in your opinion?

    My first reaction was that this meant Bradford was nailed on...but I've had a nagging question (like others) that the timing *might* have something to do with McNabb going to Washington and Campbell being up for grabs. Trading for Campbell would allow us to get Suh...or do we go for the guy some think can be our face for the future?

    I'd still prefer Suh, personally. I think whoever plays at QB is gonna take a lot of hits until our O is strengthened. Certainly wouldn't want to see the rookie in there, but the alternatives (currently) aren't huge. I do think it all points to Bradford, but I'm not sure he'd be my #1 choice.

    With or without Bulger I thought the Rams were going to draft Sam Bradford, now I have no doubt.

      A.J. Feeley, 3rd String quarterback to the stars, is currently our best QB. This screams we're betting the farm on Bradford.

        Come on, look at our QB corps. As much as I don't want Bradford, he is the guy.

          Maybe Suh then LaFeavor. Who knows. Guess Bradford will only have to go to ST LOUIS solely for the 19th workout, and not DC so ,yeah Bradford is on his way to the ARCH.

            I'm with you all the way (and voted that way too).

            Was more a devil's advocate about the other options on the table, esp with Campbell tradeable...

              I'm not so sure it's going to be Bradford, I think it could be Suh and then McCoy with the 33rd pick. I am starting to lean this way,not sure why other than taking Bradford #1 makes me nervous.

                You'd have to be putting on the blinders to believe Bradford isn't the top guy on the board now. Its blindingly obvious. Mcnabb trade knocked off the potential for a huge trade that the Rams would actually want to do. "want to do" meaning anyone outside of the top 5 wouldn't be desirable because your putting yourself out of contention for the big 3 in Suh, Mccoy, and Bradford. It looks like when Mcnabb got traded, the Rams released Bulger as a respond to prepare.

                If you somehow still think we're going Suh you've become blinded out of Suh love.

                  I think an argument could be made for the timing of the release to mirror when Cambell became cheap and able to get. Then Suh could be had (1 of top 3) and we'd have a QB.
                  We have no leverage now in talks with Bradfords agent, not that we had alot with Bulger here but anyway lets see how it plays out.

                    More likely! Both the Rams and Bradford must clearly be sensing the #1 pick come draft day.

                    Anything other than that is over-analysis, IMHO. Bulger gone, Feeley in as QB anchor for now ... Bradford being groomed to soon become the Rams 'hegemonic' force at offense. This young rookie seems to be a good man -- as a person, player, and professional (or at least I hope for the latter).

                      I believe it will be Bradford. However, it bothers me more now than it did when we still had Bulger. Bradford will not get the time to develop that he needs. He'll be rushed into the starting job. More times than not, that's a recipe for disaster.
                      That's my story, and I'm sticking to it!!

                        Why would we release Bulger aside from money in order to get an equally ineffective Campbell. That guy doesnt give us any more of a chance to win then Bulger did. Bradford is the guy in my mind, no doubt about it and I'm a Suh supporter. I think with the way everything is lining up Bradford will be wearing the horns.

                          Why on Earth do you jump to such conclusions. Your forecast is doom and gloom and he isn't even drafted yet. How will he definetely get rushed into the starting job exactly? I thought the whole point of a Feeley was so he wouldn't have to get rushed into a starting job...

                          Expect Bradford to rotate in and out of games to get his experience and make some starts down the stretch. Manning started form day one and tookh is lumps and developed into a gem. Depends on the QB whether the job will break you or not and Bradford looks to be the type of guy who rises to the occasion.

                          How about we look at the bright side. Perhaps he comes in and does well? Yay

                              The problem with that plan is that Feeley's skill level is "Kyle Boller". He couldn't vault past the 3rd string on a Carolina team that had extensive difficulties at the QB position.

                              The natives will grow quite restless with Feeley quite early.

                                Found this on BleacherReport. The second article written by Meily is a response to Hughes' article.

                                Meily makes some solid points in why we chose a QB instead of Suh....

                                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.

                                I believe Bradford is now a lock to go first overall
                                by Bald_81
                                I was hesitant to break out my crystal ball before the start of free agency because I needed a little more time and information to predict anything. However, I now believe Sam Bradford is a lock to be the first name called on April 22nd. For all I know, we could trade for Michael Vick in the next four days or have a draft day trade with Philadelphia but I don't really see either happening.

                                The signing of A.J. Feeley speaks volumes. Why? I'll tell you. It's easy to rationalize by Devaney and Co. because all it looks like is a replacement for Kyle Boller. He is a perfect fit here because he has great knowledge of Shurmur's offense and worked with him in Philadelphia. I think this is exactly why we haven't cut Bulger yet. If we go into mini camps prior to the draft with Bulger and Feeley, it doesn't fully tip our hand towards what we are going to do with the #1 pick. It buys Devaney time to say we're evaluating our quarterbacks and we'll see who emerges as the starter. If they were to release Bulger today, we would only have Feeley, Null, and Reilly on the roster. At least if we keep Bulger, it wouldn't look painfully obvious that we are taking Bradford.

                                I believe the plan of action is as follows: We enter mini camps with Bulger, Feeley, and Null fighting for the starting job. Spagnuolo does his usual "we already know Marc and we've seen Keith a little bit last year" routine when explaining how he's going to go about figuring out the position. Then, on April 22nd, we draft Sam Bradford first overall. The other up side of keeping Bulger on the roster until then is leverage in negotiations because there is the threat we can easily take Suh/McCoy and just go another year with Bulger as our QB. Suh/McCoy would both fall in slots two and three, where as Bradford would take a hit falling to number four. That would help us immensely in terms of getting a contract done before the draft. Afterwards, we shop Bulger around and see if we can get anything. If not, we release him soon afterwards. Feeley enters the season as the starter, lasts six-eight games, and the Bradford era begins.

                                The only big hurdle keeping this from happening right now is how Bradford performs at his pro day. However, from everything I've read about the combine and his shoulder everything came back well and teams were satisfied with his progress. I can't say I agree totally with the pick, but I definitely see the logic and reasoning behind it. As of right now, I don't see anyway Sam's not a Ram on April 22nd. Not my preferred choice, but as always I'll stand behind the decision.

                                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.
