With the words like Sophomore Slump being tossed around while talking about Bradford I ran across something interesting about his first 3 games this season.
While being bored surfing the net I ran across this on Pro Football Focus:
"While many praised Sam Bradford for the touchdowns and yards he accumulated in 2010, we weren’t as high on him as others. However, over three games he has a PFF pass rating of +12.5; better than his three best games combined of the 2010 season. He looked especially strong in this game when throwing to the right side of the field, completing 10 of 13 passes for 114 yards. His completion percentage of 50% doesn’t look good, but three of his passes were dropped, another three thrown away, and twice he was hit while throwing the ball. His top target was Brandon Gibson, who dropped one ball but caught the other five thrown his way for 55 yards and a touchdown. While he needs more talent around him, Bradford looks ready to take things to the next level."
.This pretty much proves that even with the all of the drops, throw aways and lets be honest the worst WR corps in the league he's still getting it done in a since. Now am I saying that he's played perfect... hell no. He has had problems with his line protection calls, RZ offense and honestly he needs to start getting the ball out quicker when he sees the blitz coming and stop looking for the big play when he doesn't have as much time (I do believe he touched up on that in one of his interviews this week at practice).
But even with all of those faults the reason why I bring this up is because some people have been questioning the FO (rightfully so) and have even went as far as to say that the Rams should have picked Suh over Bradford and I think this is just complete crazy talk on the count that Suh is dominate don't get me wrong and he is a freak of nature but he is hardly to credit for the success in Detriot. Suh doesn't have to deal with others lack of talent he just has to depend on himself. Bradford on the other hand has to deal with multiple factors like his line and lack of weapons plus learning a new system in the matter of weeks. Give Bradford Stafford's weapons and this discussion doesn't get brought up.
I do believe it is just a matter of time before Bradford does shoot into that upper echelon of QBs he just needs help from his line and we will all forget about Suh. In order to win in this league you need a good QB and Sam will get this team to that point. Tell me what you think about the whole debate of whether we should have taken Suh or do you still believe Sam was the right choice.
Do you still question taking Sam over Suh?
