Found September 25, 2012 on The Penalty Flag:
PLAYERS: Sam Bradford
TEAMS: St. Louis Rams

The first pick of the 2010 NFL Draft, and former NFL Offensive Rookie Of The Year, Heisman Trophy winner Sam Bradford has found himself in the under-deliver category, particularly after not managing to get his St. Louis Rams into the end zone during four quarters of play last week in Chicago.


After a stellar season in 2010, much was expected of Bradford and his career with the St. Louis Rams, unfortunately since that first season things seem to be falling apart. The 2011 season saw Bradford injured and on the sidelines for the most part, a place he was familiar with when he suffered an AC Joint sprain and later a shoulder injury requiring surgery during his final season with the Oklahoma Sooners while in college.… Read more

  • Please use the rookie QB before we go to far in the season and see Bradford throw more terrible balls to his receivers or cannot get the ball to them
  • Bradford is worthless. Not good at all
  • the rookie showed us he can move and throw why wait until we,re 1 and 12 to make the switch we need a winning season and we all so need a offensive front line that can protect our captian bears front 4 had there way with you,it was awful,defense you guys are looking great but i know its hard when your quarterback isnt doing his part i will always support my home team,but at least do something so i dont want to change the channel and watch mickey mouse with my daughter
  • For all us who have been a Ram's Fan over the years, know about Jim Everet, vs 49er's, the phamtom sack, just fall to the ground when he heard footstep, and while in the end-zone. Sam is a weak player, in and out of the pocket.Get no 9 in he is a Vince Fergammo.

Chicago loss a flashback to 2011 puny attack

Sam Bradford absorbed six sacks and Steven Jackson rushed for just 29 yards. The St. Louis offense, so potent the first two weeks, found no holes in Week 3. The 23-6 loss at Chicago was an uncomfortable flashback to 2011, when the Rams were at the bottom of the NFL with a 12-point scoring average. The Rams were largely betrayed by a patchwork line minus the projected starter at...

When Chris Mortensen of ESPN broke that the NFL and the real referees are very close, the entire nation rejoiced.  Finally, the NFL can return to normal and the integrity of the sport that everyone loves because of their attention deficit disorder, fantasy football obsession, and gambling habits can get back to normal.   On Wednesday afternoon, it was not just fans that were...

Week 4: Can Rams clip Seahawks at home?

The St. Louis Rams head home to the Edward Jones Dome where they are unbeaten in the 2012 NFL season.  Perhaps the friendly confine under the Gateway Arch provides this team with the edge they will need if they hope to win against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.  Many Rams fans are hopeful of a repeat of the Washington Redskin victory against the highly favored division rival Seahawks...

What the hell happened and other life altering questions

  It is not the end of the world. The Rams lost to a potential division winner on the road. Remember, the Bears lost 10 days earlier to their division rival. They simply could not lose to the Rams, in this game, at Soldier Field. Fans should not be devastated by this loss. At the same time, we should not ignore the reasons why they lost. I have not reviewed all of the...

Mistakes doom Rams' fourth-quarter comeback hopes in loss to Bears

For two weeks, Paul Boudreau and Brian Schottenheimer had tag-teamed to work around a hobbled offensive line, giving Sam Bradford plenty of quick-passing opportunities, a few well-timed deep balls, and a creative deployment of the run game. However, they faced a team with a legitimate combination of up-front pressure and backfield coverage in the Chicago Bears, and the combination...
