This week is kind of a big one for video games. Madden 13 comes out, which is the NFL equivalent of, um, well, like a major summer blockbuster movie, only it makes way more money and is probably way more interesting than most of the studio tentpoles stinking up the box office this summer.
In the spirit of football's pending start and a celebration of video games of all sorts, SB Nation's Jon Bois matched every NFL quarterback to a video game weapon. And what kind of digital weapon did St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford compare to?
Bradford is a Steel claymore from Elder Scrolls: Oblivion, 2006. I have no idea what that game is, much less what kind of weapon that is. Apparently, it's some kind of sword. Check out the description:
The Rams are staggering through their own existential dungeon, picking up draft picks and other treasures along the way. They also acquired this giant, two-handed, heavy-ass sword in Sam Bradford. They could use him effectively if they were a Warrior, but they're more of a Mage, so they can't accomplish much of anything with him.
Still, he's worth some gold, so they just keep on dragging him through the dungeon. The Rams will probably end up trading Bradford away for a sackcloth tunic and a sprig of nirnroot, which ought to give their offensive-line some much-needed depth. Hello and welcome to my joke about the St. Louis Rams being bad.
Now it makes sense. Check out the other QBs on this list.
