Rams head coach Jeff Fisher was a guest on ESPN radio’s Mike and Mike show, and it turns out that he and many of his friends believe QB Sam Bradford can be one of the best signal-callers in the league. Fisher discussed his quarterback with the Mikes, and he likes the potential Bradford possesses.
“There’s no doubt. There’s a number of friends of mine in the league that know the league, and I had one of them tell me during the process that they thought Sam may be one of the better quarterbacks — or the best quarterback — in the league, he just hasn’t had a chance to prove it yet. That weighed very heavily in my opinion. Very, very impressive player. I think he has a tremendous upside.”
I know there has been some questions about how Fisher feels about Bradford, but this answers them. It’s no secret that I have been a major Bradford supporter since he joined this team, so I love hearing this. The organization is fully committed to him, and they understand that they need to surround him with players who can help him live up to his potential.
Last season was rough, but I truly believe it was the exception, not the rule in regards to Bradford. This guy is special, and the league is going to find that out in the coming season.
