I know I go on and on about how great Sam Bradford is, so if you aren’t a fan of that, then this might not be the post for you. If you do recognize how special this kid is, then you are not going to be surprised on bit about what’s going on at the team-organized workouts at Lindenwood University this week. According to several sources who have been in attendance at the workout, Bradford has been making an impression on everyone involved. By all accounts, Bradford has put his outstanding leadership skills on display this week, running the workouts and making sure everyone is in the right place during the on-field sessions. Bradford has been studying the playbook, and he already knows the thing enough to act as a coach on the field, putting guys into position and going over the formations and little nuances involved in the offense. He is walking around the field like he is the man, and that’s because he IS the man.
In a time when there is so little to like about the NFL, Rams fans can rest assured that there is still some positive news out there, especially when this team is concerned. We have a guy like Bradford who is already running the show like a seasoned veteran, and he will be doing so for many years to come. He’s the kind of guy who, instead of relaxing on the beach during the lockout, has his nose in the new playbook. He’s the kind of guy who will invite rookies like Lance Kendricks and Greg Salas to stay at his place during the workouts because they don’t have anywhere else to stay. He’s the kind of guy who organizes workouts and gets 30-plus players to show up when they aren’t obligated to do so. When I hear things like this, it makes me even more frustrated that we are in the middle of a lockout.
