Concern in St. Louis over Bradford

08:05 AM ET 08.28 | Even Sam Bradford's supporters might allow that his weekend performance was something less than encouraging. The partial check list: Is he firm in the pocket? Bradford was awfully jumpy in Dallas. This is disturbing. It's a continuation of what we saw from Bradford in 2011, when he clearly felt the effects of the frequent pummeling he took from opponents. ... When the protection holds up, and the quarterback has time to make a throw, is he accurate? Bradford had one terrible miss down the left sideline. He had plenty of time to make the connection, but overthrew an all-alone wide receiver. I'm no Bradford basher. If anything, I'm a Bradford apologist. This organization has done little to help him.

The last sentence sums it up!

So, he's Sam the Sham?

"I'm no Bradford basher." Is like saying, 'I don't mean to offend you', or 'I don't want to sound like a jerk'. Meaning, you are.

Yep... Those "weapons" I saw Saturday night aren't very good.

Gun shy from the beatings he took? It's possible...

There are some veteran wideout's looking for jobs.

Let's see, the team sucks so the fans stop going to games. The owner says the city doesn't support the team, and gets permission to move to LA.

Yup, all according to plan.

And don't forget about all the 1st round draft picks they received from Washington....

If used properly, they still should have a good team in a few years.

Yeah... but they aren't very good either.

Take heat Ram fans. You finally have a very good HC and a boatload of top picks coming your way. You will have options. Heck, you can probably get Barkley next year if you want him. Or the next best thing and still have picks.

Pats released Gaffney and Stallworth. Not sure if either of them has much left, though.

No, he plays behind a terrible OL.

Now, I'm worried about Sam Bradford.

How compassionate.
