Jaws Criticizes Rams’ QB Sam Bradford


Ron Jaworski has been studying 2012 game tape ahead of the 2013 season and diagnosing quarterbacks weaknesses and strengths ahead of the season. Earlier he predicted that Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill will make a big leap in 2013. Now he is criticizing St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford, or zeroing in on the area he needs to improve.

“Too many interceptions,” Jaworski said, via ESPN. “And it’s a red zone game. You can’t be a high-level quarterback if you can’t execute there.”

That simple lack of execution is what is holding Bradford back according to Jaws. There is no debate about his arm strength or ability.

“There’s never been a question about Bradford’s arm talent,” Jaworski said.

Bradford has the “throwing skill set to be a top-ten passer in this league,” Jaws said.

The St. Louis Rams have done their part to bring in parts for Bradford to work with. They signed free agent tight end Jared Cook from the Tennessee Titans. They took a dynamic wide receiver, Tavon Austin, in the draft.

Austin has said he’s been clicking with Bradford and is enjoying being one of Bradford’s weapons in what hopes to be a potent offense.

    Is it even worth mentioning to Jaws that Bradford is 15th in the league in interceptions? Jaws was a quarterback. My guess is if you asked any NFL QB what the acceptable number of Int’s are he’d say zero.

    I AM ONE OF THE FEW WHO REMEMBER JAWS WITH THE EAGLES YES I AM THAT OLD SO HE SHOULD NOT TALK TO MUCH ABOUT THE QBS AS HE WAS JUST A FAIR PLAYER.

    Bradford had 13 interceptions last year. Jaworski, in his prime, averaged 13.7 per year in a nine year span in an era when teams ran more than they passed. Hey Jaws- Zing!
