Now that running back Stephen Jackson is off to Atlanta and the St.Louis Rams front office has brought in a few choice weapons to balance out their attack. There is no excuse left for quarterback Sam Bradford, who for the last 3 season’s having had below average stats and has been only a game manager for an offense that lacked weapons.
This is Bradford’s team this year and going forward, all of his weapons on offense give him everything a signal caller would need in wide receivers. Bradford has not yet lived up to his over all number one draft pick of 2010 and will be looking to make the next steps in his pro career. The question will be answered this year and the team and the fans of St.Louis will have a short fuse and have the attitude of no excuses.
Bradford needs to show he was worth the hype of the highest pick by performing to a level of elite, will he measure up, we will find out this weekend in the teams season opener against division rival Arizona Cardinals.
Bradford has the luxury of weapons on offense for the first time in three years and his receiving core this year is packed with unproven players. Two dynamic rookies in Tavon Austin and Stedman Bailey from this years draft. The other receivers are young as well and will all have to be at their best to allow Bradford to shine.
I think that the running game will be the question for the offense this year and perhaps this may be the next obstacle for the Rams to overcome. The team is hopeful that second year running back Daryl Richardson can handle the work load.
