    No, I just don't see a good ROI on SB and think that's a position that needs to be upgraded. It's nothing personal. I don't hate Bradford and I have plenty of positive things to say about our players, but when the Rams miss the playoffs going on 10 years now, it's time to focus on what needs fixing.

    We're paying SB Peyton Manning money yet you would be hard to find any NFL pundit that thinks he will ever become a top-tier QB and will be anything more than an average QB. IDK how much more we have to see until it becomes obvious.

    I've been pretty harsh on Rodney McLeod as well as he's a liability at Safety, especially in the passing game and I have stated that Safety is a need either in the Draft or in FA. The guy makes me miss Craig Dahl in pass coverage. But we're not paying him Peyton Manning/Tom Brady money so I don't get on him as much. But FS needs to be addressed.

    I think JL is a good MLB, but not great and is not worth the money he makes, but he's productive and plays hard, but overpaid.

    Chris Long is making a lot of money, but had an off-season due to a hip injury but had 24.5 sacks combined the previous two seasons.
    Next year will also be a telling season for him as well.

    I don't think OL is as bad as people think if Jake Long can come back in a timely manner from his knee injury, Saffold is re-signed and Barrett Jones is ready to go after recovering from the Lisfranc injury. Maybe a OL in FA and/or the mid-rounds for depth.

    But paying 17.6 Million next year for a QB with a career passer rating of 79.3 that is also injury prone is the main weakness of this team.

    Like I said, the return on our investment has been terrible and I don't see it getting better. Not bashing Bradford, just my take on the main weakness of the team. We can get similar play from a FA or a draftee QB for far less money and have a LOT of money for FA's to address other needs on the team.

    Krap is an example of what was left behind in the restroom when I left this morning.

    It's funny how a thread started about Kaepernick (on a Rams forum) ended up being about Bradford.
    It's like it was .......... intentional or something.

    Nah.

    I can't stand dishonesty.
    Peyton Manning - $19.2 million dollars per year on average
    Sam Bradford - $13.0 million dollars per year on average

    Do you know who is the closest comparison to Sam in terms of average salary per year? MARK SANCHEZ. Sam is currently ranked 15th in the NFL in average salary per year at QB. So if Sam is an average QB...that's right about where he should rank.

    Kaeperdick cannot beat you with his arm. He can't read through progressions and if you make him stay in the pocket he will give you multiple chances to intercept during a game

    Kaepernick and Wilson have both made a couple amazing throws but as a whole not been impressive as passers.

    .

    I hope the op was excited about the mr magoo impersonation by Gonzo.

    No pocket awareness and can't see defenders in his throwing lanes.

    You put down Bradford, but then praise Manning and Brady on their mobility. Those guys are statues compared to Sam.

    In all honesty, they're both okay QBs in the offense designed around them. They're like an extra RB nobody accounts for. But Klapperdonk is only given one half of the field to read, and if his primary is covered, it's eyes down for the hole. If the hole isn't there, then it's scramble and wait for someone to get open. Pretty simplistic, but it works. It wouldn't work on a bad team though. Akili Smith and the Bengals or Steve Young on the Bucs can aptly demonstrate that theory.

    A pretty good extra RB but you're got to balance that with not having a QB on the field.

    That's exactly right. And that's why those guys are at the bottom of the league in pass attempts and first in rush attempts. If there was no running game (Gore, Hunter, Lynch, etc), then the pressure on those QBs would be immense. I don't think they'd be nearly as successful.

    lmfao Sherman had me rolling on the floor. That was hilarious. "Im the best corner in the game. When you try me with a sorry receiver like Crabtree, thats the result you gonna get" yelling at the top of his lungs.
