Sam Bradford: Managing Expectations For His Rookie Campaign

September 3, 2010   ·     ·   Jump to comments

I think its fair to say that there is a level of optimism in St. Louis that has not been present for several years.
The reason: Sam Bradford.
Thus far, Bradford has done everything Rams’ fans could have hoped he would. 
No long contract holdout.   He arrived at camp healthy and in shape.
He had a couple of rough outings in the first two preseason games, but has since then been nothing short of exceptional (21-28, 254 yards, 3 touchdowns, 0 interceptions) as the starter in games three and four of the preseason.
Though Steve Spagnuolo has not made a formal announcement, it seems highly unlikely that Bradford won’t be the starter next week against the Cardinals.
As a Rams fan, its hard to keep the expectations at a reasonable level.
But, before the Dan Marino comparisons start flying, here’s a reality check:
401 attempts
230 completions
57.4 completion percentage
2,781 yards
14 touchdowns
