Something to Think About: Clausen vs Bradford

Recommended Posts

Hey guys I read some stuff on the internet about football most of it went over my head but here's my fluffed up opinion on Sam Bradford based on watching one game hope you guys like it!

Show me where I said I only watched one game?

Again, keep building up your strawman delhomo. You don't like it if I state an opinion, then you don't like it when I state a fact and offer up a credible source for proof. Hmmm, seems like you just don't like my posts. Personal? It's okay if your daddy didn't love you.

People don't like it when you tell them to get off your jock Harrrrdy harrrr hurrrrr

The Rams have tailored their offence to Bradford's strengths (short, high percentage throws). The Panthers....not so much.

I wasn't defending the dickweed at all, just saying that Bradford was a good college QB and I said all along he would be a good pro.

Bradford didn't always start in the shotgun, though I was used more than not. He had some experience under center. While technically OU does run a spread, they'll also use 2 TE sets, multiple backs, etc.

I'm an OU fan and watch most of their games the last few years. He wasn't hurt a lot, it was a recurring shoulder problem that took a pounding in consecutive games.

Yeah I knew that much about him and OU. And the shoulder injury was a huge story... I know he injured it twice. I was just saying, I'm not a Bradford expert, but I knew draft analysts mentioned the offense he was coming out of as a concern, not as much as the injuries, but they still talked about it. I watched several games, but I just wasn't sure how legit he was IMHO at the time because of all the guys that came out of there before playing in the that offense - Huepel (sp?), White?, Bomar (although he transferred later)... Hey, I just did that without research, maybe someone will critique me on how technically Bomar never was an Oklahoma QB now... lol.

I watched several OU games, you can't help it as they are on Nat'l TV b/c program is typically pretty highly ranked and all... I know I'm not an expert on anything that is OU, but I know a lot more than the casual fan and as I said, I don't like some dick rummaging through a post and finding a point furthest from the subject matter and de-railing a thread like delhomo does.

Thanks for your posts though JOAT.

Bradford's strength was his deadly accuracy, which is one of the few skills that carries over to the NFL.

The only small question marks were his shoulder and of course the unknowable of "how will this guy respond to $50 million guaranteed dollars in his bank account" concern. These were small. Anything else was the nitpicking that comes with the territory of being the first overall pick.

As soon as he threw and showed that he was healthy, it was a done deal that he was going to the Rams. He's that good.

Ryan Leaf won his first two games and was looking better than Payton Manning but we know how that story ends. JC looked good yesterday for a rookie.

At least Bradford puts his team into a position where they have a chance at winning. At least they have some offense. We have better weapons than the Rams, and can't even put up half the points.

Play calling....that is the difference.

Maybe I watched a different game but I was fairly certain we were in a position to win it yesterday :confused:

Bradford is like Vick he can be a really good quarterback but you are rolling the dice with that glass shoulder every time he steps on the field.

As someone with a similar shoulder injury I can tell you that the shoulder is NEVER the same. It never will be. That's the risk.

Don't you know?

Any QB that has the nerve to take the field over the great Moore stands no chance of ever being a good QB.

The only solution to the problem is to put the Mighty Moore back in.

Because that mid-2nd round pick came into a way better situation than Bradford...plus what made Clausen a 2nd round pick was off the field stuff.

did he?

i'm not quite sure of that anymore.

Agreed. I don't blame Clausen or the Oline......I blame the coaching staff. You have to install plays that play to your players strenghts or ones that cover their weakness. We don't run any pass plays that will build a QB's confidence. All day long Brees played pitch and catch with his recievers....RB,TE, FB and WR's. Peyton called a great game against us....running mis-direction, swing passes, over loads, etc. Anything to keep us off balance on defense. What did we do on offense? We ran a successful screen pass on the first play and never ran another one the entire game. No swing passes to slow the pass rush, believe it or not....I really don't remember any draws. IMO.......if your QB is young and your Oline is struggling..........you do things to help them, not just run the same old tired poo plays.

Never, have I suggested that, and I haven't seen anyone else in this thread suggest it either. I don't know what happened to Moore from last year, other than maybe other teams studying game film on him and our usual shitty playcalling. Peyton Manning may be the only QB in the league that would have any chance of looking good behind this OL, and that's b/c he can basically call his own game, and I'm not so sure that would make a difference... Our OL is playing like poo and the playcalling only complicates that issue.

Maybe I watched a different game but I was fairly certain we were in a position to win it yesterday :confused:

Yeah but it never really felt like it. I was really excited after Jimmy completed that 4th down pass and thought we could be witnessing history. Then reality and the coaching staff set in, lol... It just never felt like we were going to hold on to the win, and then when we fell behind, with this offense I don't know how you would be very confident we would come back, but I held onto hope.

Like I said, I don't know if Clausen is the answer, we won't know until we see more... I certainly hope he is, but it's hard to tell what we've got with him with the poo job the coaches and OL are doing. Any QB in there is pretty much handcuffed. Additionally, I don't think MM is the answer either and never really felt he was, but he deserved the shot he got and lost it. I just hope Clausen is the man so we don't have to end up like Cleveland and spend 11 or 12 years looking for one...

New England had to do some major adjustments when Brady was injured and they started Matt Cassell. The difference between us and them of course is that New England made those adjustments and went 11-5 and barely missed the playoffs.
