Does Sam Bradford get a career pass by the media?

<p>Here's a guy who was selected No.1 overall and signed a contract bigger than Tom Brady's before he even threw a pass. Had a decent rookie year, and has been below-average ever since. Rams traded Number 2 overall pick, where they were in position to take RG3 instead they trade down to build around Sam. RG3 is having one of the most remarkable rookie seasons ever, and Bradford continues his terrible play. Rams have invested money, draft picks and coaches into Bradford and he still has yet to show he can be "The next Tom Brady". This is why some of us fans question the media's motives when dragging Cam's name in the mud.

Cam has a below-average half a season and gets absolutely thrashed, hell, some thought we should consider trading him during the offseason.

If that isn't sensationalized reporting, I don't know what is.

Yep, he sure does. As does Matthew Stafford.

Everyone had ridiculous numbers, the lockout affected defenses tremendously.

I forgot Bradford was even in the league, so I guess you are right, he does seem to get a pass cause nobody talks about him. Rams should've used that pick on RG3.

FYI, Bradford accounts for 15 million of the Rams cap.

Actually Bradford is one of the few brightspos of the Rams offense.

His offensive line is terrible and he just now has an emerging #1 WR.

The Rams have been a bad team for over a decade. They need more than just a QB. RGIII would not be doing what he is now in St.Louis. Cam would not be doing what he is now in St.Louis. Not a lot of rookie/2nd year QBs could succeed in St. Louis.

Bradford is irrelevant mostly... Stafford should be taken to task as is Andy Dalton... But common theme here.

As if our line wasn't terrible at the beginning at the season, that is the MAIN reason why Cam struggled. I didn't hear that from the media though, it was "Cam needs to mature".

Trust me, our o-line would be an upgrade from St. Louis'.

Take into account they had no offensive weapons outside of Jackson.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying there's not a double standard for Cam, but Bradford isn't at all a bust.
