Many are wondering if this is Sam Bradford’s “make or break” year. How much longer will the franchise continue to turn their star pick from five years ago, before they go in a different direction? Jeff Fisher and the Rams are committed to Bradford. They went 7-9 last season when Bradford missed seven games. Who know what their record would have been with him in the lineup, but one thing is certain. Good things happen when Bradford plays.
Many call him injury prone. With a good offensive line in front of him, Bradford is capable of making through a full season. If he plays the way he did for his brief time on Saturday in the Rams 21-7 loss to Green Bay, they’ll be just fine. Bradford was 9 of 12 passes for 101 yards and a touchdown. The quarterback wasn’t sacked, and even when he got hit, he bounced right up.
“For anybody that’s had questions about Sam’s condition — his physical condition — I think they were answered today,” Fisher said. “I was pleased with his performance in the brief amount of time that he played.”
Bradford’s first drive resulted in a punt after ten plays. Then in the second quarter, on his next possession, Bradford went play-action pass deep over the middle to wide receiver Brian Quick for 41 yards. Just a few plays later Bradford hit tight end Lance Kendricks up the seam for an 11-yard touchdown pass.
