St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford has been named the NFL Rookie of the Week for his week 4 dismantling of the Seattle Seahawks

Bradford was also up for the FedEx NFL Air Player of the Week, but that went to Denver's Kyle Orton

It's good to see the kid getting his due, and I suspect he'll get plenty more before the year's over. Offensive Rookie of the Year is a very distinct possibility. 

Bradford was also #1 on the St. Louis Sports Power Rankings at SBN St. Louis. 

Sam Bradford has made professional football relevant in Saint Louis for the first time in six years, and it took him four short weeks. His play has been remarkable, especially considering he still doesn't have a number one receiver or a "good" offensive line, and faces blitz after blitz. He has the demeanor of Lee Majors and the looks of a young Tom Selleck. His skin makes newborns jealous. Women want to be him, men want to be with him—yes, you read that right. He's that good.
