Maybe you saw 79%? 79% of his completions (not attempts) were within 10 yards

Re: sam bradford

I'm a bit of a Bill Walsh and WCO buff myself, and if you didn't see his 49ers offenses you might believe that they were a strictly short passing offense but they were a complete passing offense:

"....the coaching staff should guard against being "seduced" by the relative ease of completing 3-step drop passes"
"A key factor to consider when using the 3 step drop pass is how much yardage is gained relative to the number of times the play is run. An offensive scheme using 3-step drop passes which doesn't produce relatively significant yardage, despite numerous opportunities, may be serving the defense more than the offense."

Here's a vid that shows a glimpse of there 7 step game

I've read some of his stuff(wikipedia links to some of his coaching documents at Stanford, etc) months ago. What you said is true. I'm not trying to disagree with you.

Another case of lost in translation.
Just passing along info, no disagreement here.

Their best move was sending Richie Incognito and Alex Barron out of town.

Was their a worse O-line duo in the history of the NFL?

Re: sam bradford

Josh McDaniels might be a lot of things, but the dude can coach the passing game.
I think this is a great move for Bradford and the Rams. (maybe not so much for Jackson though)
I think the trade off of changing systems is worth the benefit of marrying up McDaniels knowledge of the spread w/ Bradford's proficiency executing the spread.

Re: sam bradford

Perhaps there is hardly any talk because .... HE'S A RAM!
But if your going to start a thread about all the recent rookie QB's then yeah he's good as well as Sanchez and Stafford.

Also, McCoy greatly benefits from Hillis in the same way that Ryan and Flacco benefited from their rushing attacks back in 2008. Before you jump to conclusions, I am not saying McCoy is bad, but IMO he has not impressed yet, and is not even comparable to bradford.
Just thought I'd pass along that both Football Outsiders and ESPN's new QBR have Colt McCoy's rookie season ahead or Sam Bradford.

So you can add them to the list of people not in their right minds.

Re: sam bradford

Not true. They went for McNabb after it was clear Bradford was no longer an option

Re: sam bradford

I thought that was Andrew Luck's job?

Anyway, I agree Bradford is the truth. The Rams will probably be a contender sooner rather than later with him at the helm.

He decided to trade for McNabb, in hopes that Trading McNabb and the fourth overall pick that that would be good enough to get the number one overall pick and get Sam Bradford. He had even talked to the Rams front office and asked them if they wanted McNabb, they said they would definitely consider it and that it was a good possibility they would take that trade offer, but a few weeks later after he had his pro day and met with the rams, the rams felt that he was too good to pass up on and that they needed to get younger. Shanahan even told Bradford that when they met for a workout and dining experience that he said 'theres a good chance that you will be on our team this fall.' Rams called a few days later saying, 'sorry we want him, no trade.' Shanahan, Kyle and Mike, didn't really want McNabb, they just wanted a better chance at getting Bradford, which ended up being a gamble that didn't turn out.

Why go through all that when you could just offer your 1st & 2nd. I think SS story sounds more beleiveable.

Re: sam bradford

Or you just work a 3 team deal. Taking the risk of trading for someone in hopes of being able to turn around and trade him right away doesn't make much sense at all.

I listen to Czab in the morning and he is hilarious in a hybrid homer simpson/george costanza sort of way. But you really gotta fact check the sh*t his says. he gives some bad info.

I still remember when Czab ask Mark Brunell if he would bench himself for the better of the team on CSN. Classic.
