Mistakes happen all the time. Mistakes happen and they might not have the biggest of consequences. But some can send a sports franchise into a downward spiral.
Look at the Cleveland Browns and the mistake they made by drafting Tim Couch over Donavon McNabb. The Cleveland Browns have been terrible ever since and the Eagles played in three straight NFC Championships.
This is going somewhere, trust me. I am putting the spotlight on the St. Louis Rams and their quarterback, Sam Bradford. The Rams drafted Bradford first overall three years ago and some fans are looking for better results. Some are wondering if the Rams made a mistake?
Now is Sam Bradford as bad as Tim Couch? No, not even close. But will he be as good as Donanvon McNabb was during his glory days in Philadelphia?
I have looked at a lot of drafts since 2004 and there have not been a lot of true franchise quarterbacks. High profile quarterbacks that have entered the league since then include Matt Ryan, Joe Fla...

A FAREWELL TO ARM
Sam Bradford started off the Rams’ Thursday night match-up against the Phoenix Cardinals by throwing early and often. On the second pass completion of the day Bradform hooked up with Amendola on a 44 yard pass which Amendola pulled in with just his left arm. It should be noted that Bradford and the Rams were going directly after Patrick Peterson, who was also flagged on the play...
The St. Louis Rams rolled over the helpless Arizona Cardinals in front of the entire country Thursday night demeaning a high flying and unbeaten Cardinal team 17-3.

Arizona Cardinals 3, St. Louis Rams 17Except for a few big plays, Sam Bradford (141 yards, 2 TDs, 1 INT) had a fairly dreadful day passing, completing just 7 of 21 passes. But those few big plays were exactly what the Rams needed, along with a suffocating defense, to topple the Cardinals and send them to their first loss of the year.
