With RG3 coming to town, you're going to hear a lot of people saying the Rams should've drafted Griffin. After all, the Rams were holding the No. 2 overall pick. They had Griffin if they wanted him.
You know there were several teams (Cleveland, Washington) that coveted Bradford coming out of college, and those teams would have traded picks to the Rams for Bradford, just not the king's ransom they got from Washington for the No. 2 pick.
So did the Rams make the right move by keeping Bradford?
I think they did, and I wrote about that yesterday. I still believe in Sam Bradford, and I think we're going to see him play his best game as a Ram on Sunday afternoon against the Redskins. So much of Bradford's success is going to come down to Wayne Hunter blocking Brian Orakpo.
Like I said earlier, we need Brit Miller in the game as an extra blocker!
If the Rams will give Bradford time to throw, he can do some damage against this Redskins secondary. I also look for Brian Quick to get on the field this week, as Steve Smith was basically a non factor on the outside. We need a big, physical receiver to make plays on the outside.
If we're not going to give Quick a chance, then why did we waste the No. 33 pick on him?
I expect the Rams' offense to rally around Sam Bradford this week. They hear the same talk we hear, and if they have any respect for Bradford, they are going to step up. The O Line will keep him clean, and the receivers will go make plays for him.
Sam Bradford is about to silence his critics. He's going to outplay Griffin, and that is the biggest reason the Rams will be 1-1 come Monday morning.
