ST. LOUIS All eyes were on Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III Sunday after he burst onto the scene with a record-setting performance to upset the New Orleans Saints in Week one.
But Rams quarterback Sam Bradford reminded folks why he's got a Heisman Trophy as well. In arguably the best game of his young career, a motivated Bradford completed 26-of-35 passes for 310 yards and three touchdowns to lead St. Louis to a 31-28 victory over Griffin and the Redskins.
"Sam's motivated every game, all game," said wide receiver Danny Amendola. " I mean he's a hell of a player. He's the best Heisman trophy winner I know."
After Griffin led the Redskins to a dramatic week one victory and the Rams lost in Detroit, some uninformed football followers wondered aloud if St. Louis should have drafted Griffin themselves and traded Bradford instead. The Rams, after all, traded the No. 2 overall pick to Washington so they could take Griffin - who by all accounts was a franchise quarterback.
