Bradford Will Be Just Fine Says Rams GM

Raise your hand if you're at least a little concerned about Sam Bradford. Be honest. [counting 1 ... 2 ... 3 ... 4 ...] Yep, that looks like everyone, and justifiably so. The St. Louis Rams franchise quarterback has taken more abuse than a the awkward kid in a broken bumper car. He is trying to get over a dose of "cabin fever" mixed with a touch of David Carr syndrome, and the results through the preseason have been mixed.

No worries, says Les Snead, the Rams' general manager.

Snead was on NFL AM, the NFL Network's morning show, on Wednesday sending out positive assurances about his quarterback's grasp of the system.

"I think the more times we get on stage, and that'll occur tomorrow night against the Ravens in St. Louis, the more time he gets out there, plays and gets timing down with his receivers, he'll continue to develop in this offense."

Offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer and the coaches have designed a system to ease Bradford back into the swing of things. It was something Greg Cosell talked about last week on the Yahoo Sports Shutdown Corner podcast. Quick passes, short passes, three-step drops and a run-first approach will ideally help with pass protection and get Bradford back on his groove this season.

Last week's game against the Cowboys frightened more than a few fans, after Bradford pitched nearly perfect outing the week before against the hapless Chiefs. He gets another test on Thursday night against the Ravens' second team defense. Snead thinks that by Week 1 Bradford will be in sync with things.
