The Rams decided in last April’s draft that the best way to rebuild their 1-15 team was to draft a Heisman Trophy winning QB coming off of a throwing shoulder injury. I don’t think they’re losing too much sleep about it either.
Playing with the worst receiving corps in football, he passed for 3,512 and 18 TDs. That’s more than Ben Roethlisberger and Michael Vick had. He became the first QB in NFL history to have 300 yards or more, 3 TDs, and no interceptions in a road victory.
He broke the rookie-passing record for completions. The guy he beat…Peyton Manning.
And despite playing with rookies on the offensive line and throwing more passes than 30 of the league’s teams, Bradford had 2009’s worst team within one game of a division title.
Bradford holds a slew of rookie accomplishments and is already being compared to some of the best quarterbacks in recent memory. And to make things even better for Rams fans, new offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels is the perfect pairing for Bradford’s great arm talent.
McDaniels will do wonders for Bradford’s progress in 2011 and if the Rams can get a play-making receiver in the fold, look out. Sam Bradford is scary good and well on his way to being one of the best players in the league.
