Stunning Stat Reveals Sam Bradford's Achillies Heel!


Did you know that Sam Bradford's passer rating (90.1) was 11th in the NFL. That's a huge improvement in Sam's game.

Sam Bradford's improved his competition rate (60.8) too. Sam was ranked 18th in completion percentage the NFL.

What would you do if I told you , " The Rams coaching staff can turn Sam Bradford into a playoff Quarterback overnight.

Would you like to know the one thing Sam needs to do to become a perennial playoff Quarterback? OK, I'll tell you all about Sam's Achilles Heel. Sam doesn't throw the ball down field often enough, because he doesn't go through his progressions , instead Sam locks onto the safe receiver for a short completions. That's It! And it's the most important thing Sam must learn to do in 2014. I'm telling you, If Sam doesn't do it than the Rams are doomed to lose!

How can you say that Ewe? What makes you be so cock sure? Because the stunning stat that reveals Sam Bradford's Achillies Heel intertwined with Sam's receiver progression problem. And that stat would be YDS/A. Or in layman's terms Yardage per attempt.

FACT- Only 1 of the top 15 quarterbacks in YDS/A had a losing season in 2013. Only One! (Mathew Stafford) Sam Bradford placed 34th in the league with an abysmal (6.44) YDS/A. Sam's lifetime YDS/A is even worse (6.30)

The NFL is a big play league. The Rams won't win enough games to be a playoff team, if they must rely on 14 play touchdown drives. The Odds of a drive killing Penalty, Sack, fumble, or interception occurring on a long drive is too high. The only way to consistently score quick is to throw downfield often.

In 2013 Quarterbacks on teams with a winning record averaged YDS/A was (7.85). Quarterbacks on teams with a losing record averaged YDS/A was (6,68). Sam's YDS/A was (6.44)

The 64 dollar question is, can Sam Bradford go thru his progressions, and avoid relying on the short passes to safe receivers in 2014? If Sam can improve this ONE aspect of his game it will show up in two important stats:

!. YDS/A above (7.10)
