I think most Rams fans realize what we have in Sam Bradford and the hope he brings to the future of our franchise. After an amazing rookie campaign(especially in the context of a lousy running game, average pass blocking and what many considered the poorest group of receivers in the NFL). Another set of stats provided by ProFootballFocus.com - the number of times(by percent) a quarterback was sacked when under pressure.
One of the most underrated aspects of a quarterback's skill is his ability to avoid a sack and give himself more time to make a play. It is an innate skill that probably cannot be taught. A quick release, fast decision making ability and movement within the pocket are all critical. We have all seen enough games from Peyton Manning to realize that he is one of the best at moving within the pocket and avoiding sacks. I've often wondered if he had eyes in the back of his head because he always seemed to know when to step left, step up, dump the ball off etc. Not surprisingly he rated #2 in avoiding sacks - and that was with two poorly rated OT's. As a matter of fact most of the top QB's are in the top of the list. Brady 10, Matt Ryan 11, Drew Breese 3, Eli 1, Freeman 5. Where did Sam end up on this list - #4. Remember, these stats are when he's under pressure so those designed rollouts we used to avoid sacks don't count as being under pressure. More proof that we really have something special in Mr. Bradford.
I don't have any numbers on Bulger when he was with the Rams but I remember cussing at him so many times because he always seemed to move in the wrong direction when things got sticky. And that was before he got battered quarterback syndrome.
How did the rest of the NFC West rate? Since they had revolving QB's they are rated as a group.
49s - 21st
Seattle - 30th
Arizona - 28th
And the worst - Jimmy Clausen and the Panthers at #32.
