    It sucks that they're mostly going without pads. How can you fully gauge a guys improvement without being able to go full speed? Especially the defense. Gotta take the practices with a grain of salt.

    Question for you coachO if you don't mind.
    Did williams send any blitz's or was it strictly the front 4? If he did blitz, who was after the QB?

    He mixed in quite a few blitzes, sending both OLBs at times.

    I am 100% serious. No QB goes 16+ games a year and doesn't get blasted at one point or another. I'm not hoping he gets hurt; far from it! I want him to experience what it is like so he can be more confident in his leg and move on to being the best QB for the Rams he can be. Every split second counts as a QB, and if one of those split seconds is wasted worrying about his knee, he will end up making mistakes or, even worse, reinjuring himself. Just get it over with so he can prove to himself that he is okay and can move on from it.

    Not in camp tho? Could you imagine the looks on everyone's face if Brockers, no, Aaron Donald stumbled and hit Bradford low...In practice...He's a five year vet...Did you see the injury to Sanchez in a scrimmage game?

    Trust me, he knows what it's like to get hit....All QB's have been hit more than most....I think a couple of live games in preseason, then maybe by week 3-4 he'll be himself.

    I think you are misreading my OP, with regards to Bradford. I never meant to imply he showed he was the least bit concerned about his knee. Quite the opposite is the case. He moved around great, and never once did it look like he was "thinking about the knee".

    My biggest point was the "rust" factor of not being in a situation where there was a lot of traffic to navigate thru, and still get the ball out on time and in rhythm.

    To even suggest that Bradford or ANY QB get hit in training camp is insane. Regardless of your premise behind putting his mind at ease, it just not common sense.

    Yeah, he had rust, but he wasn't skittish or reserved. His mechanics looked good.

    I hope he never has to wash his uni, don't think getting his bell rung is a positive thing ,all the years he's played the position,he knows the drill.

    I don't think we have the luxury of 4 games for Bradford to be himself.
    I know he's not going to get hit in camp, but until he takes that hit to prove he can get up without issue, it's got to be in your head.
    I remember when Sam came back from the shoulder. Everyone was holding g there breath to see if he could take it. Once he got hit a few times, the pressure was off.

    The fear of the unknown is a heavy weight for players and fans.

    That's like telling a kid that grows up in a very dangerous area with a lot of gang activity that he should let someone shoot him in a safe environment so he gets over the fear of being shot.

    Well...not quite. That's hyperbole. But the point is that the risk is far greater than the reward. You don't let your QB get blasted in practice.

    Who ever said I wanted him hit in practice? I never want a QB touched in practice. Red Jersey is sacred!

    I understand what you're trying to say. In the back of Bradford's mind, he has to be worrying about getting hit and becoming injured due to his recent surgery, so you just want it to happen (and it's going to at some point) early so he can shake that fear and just play ball.
