Eagles and 49ers can swap QB's next year.

Oh hell no. Keep Soft Sam in Philly.
philly feels the same. Kaep is the worst QB in the league.
I'd take Kaep over Bradford. You know... For the upside that Kellys always looking for.

And I can't stand Kaep.

you'd take Ryan Leaf over Bradford. So your opinion doesn't mean much. You have this weird thing where everything that happens is Bradford's fault and you refuse to ever give him credit. Not sure what that's about, but your replies are all very predictable at this point. Edited by JuniorNB

Was week 1 not an absolute indictment of Jeff Fisher as the QB killer?  He managed to turn two #1 overall picks into fantasy and reality shyte.  Granted, Bradford suffered some injuries under Fisher,

Hey take it to the Frogs forum!  

Solid point you have going here, please expand.

I'd take Bradford over Kaep, at least Bradford has the upside of a season ending knee injury.

Hey Ryan Leaf. Former #2 overall pick. That potential is there. Just has to get acclimated to Chips system.

All I know is we were 6-2 last year before Nick went down and the team has been a #### show since. I'm done buying the Bradford hype.

You bring up a good point there. It's not just the Foles /Bradford switch but I just wonder about the strategy about swapping out so many players and then trying to build a team. Maybe he needs more time. I dunno.

Well we got all year. I Just don't expect many things to change with the way the first 7 games have gone. Could Bradford get better? Yea I guess but everyone bags on these receivers so we'll have the same old mantra of "he doesn't have the players around him." When will it be Bradford just plain sucks?

Why is it that a 3rd hear QB who had great success in his first year of an offense is thrown away for a guy who has proven nothing in this league? Every week Bradford looks average I keep thinking "was Foles really worse than this?" At the cost of $13mil and a 2nd rounder, no I don't believe he was.

Right. same line, same skill positions, same play calling. Let's not forget that ST and defense won a few of those games for us too.

Wasn't there a stat posted in one of these threads that said Bradford was one of the least pressured QBs in the league?

The Rams have the one of the worst passing offenses in the league.

Not sure that's a good barometer as so many variables are different. Honestly i haven't watched any games so i can't really comment on how he's played.

"Kelly was also asked about if he'd consider benching Sam Bradford. The quarterback has thrown nine touchdown passes and ten interceptions this season, recording a 76.4 passer rating. However, according to Pro Football Focus, Bradford's receivers have a drop rate of 9.1 percent, which is the worst mark since 2007."

"No, not at all," Kelly said. "I think our quarterback is playing well."

http://www.phillymag...eb1RmGXXecqL.99

---------------------

PHI receivers drops are worst in the NFL in the last 8 years. Some of Bradford's decisions, especially in the RZ, are highly questionable. But undoubtedly this impacts his rating, yards, YPA, TDs, and ability to get into any kind of rhythm.

In FootballOutsiders stats - (before yesterday's games)

Bradford was 23rd of 33 QBs (mediocre at best)

Foles was 31st of 33 QBs (speaks for itself)

One threw the ball 23 times for 163 yards and no picks. The other threw the ball 46 times for 203 yards and 1 pick. Yea.

Chip is realizing something that a lot of people already knew. You can't change out half of a team and have much success. Smartest guy in the room thought he could, though.

It is 1st year he had control of roster, so he still can't make moves he wants? Besides Maclin I don't see many former players doing anything and Eagles are 1 game back.

Let's be fair here. Rogers or Brady would get shell-shocked working behind what is universally considered the worst line in football, add in in a WR corps that rivals some teams practice squad and you have a recipe for wasted talent. As a life long Rams fan I am as excited as anyone that Fisher came aboard and while he's had a TON of holes to fill it's almost criminal how he has done almost nothing to support Bradford. Scott Wells will hopefully be a nice pick up but the rest of the line is garbage and how they didn't address WR's in the FA market is beyond me. I like the defensive moves but Bradford is the future (or a least near future) and your best shot at building a contending team in the coming 2-3 years. A strong defense does you nothing if you can't score.There is no doubt this is a make or break year for Sam. If he spends the entire year running for his life trying to find WR's that can't gain separation instead of re-building that confidence he's so clearly lost he's done for. And unfortunately it won't be the first time the Rams have wrecked what could have been a franchise QB. Marc Bulger anyone?......

I still think he has upside...great rookie season can't be overlooked.He was throwing to Pop Warner players last year.

I don't get it.Bradford was very good as a rookie on a terrible team. Then had a poor year while recovering from an injury, on an even worse team, with pinheaded coaching.I think maybe give him a chance with at least a mediocre club and a decent coach before you run him out on a rail. I think people will be coming around on the Rams in a big way by the end of this year, even though they're still only a so-so team in terms of talent, and I think Bradford will be regarded as a big part of the reason why.

This is what I'm talking about. Three years ago the guy had the same excuses being made for him. When is it going to be maybe the guy just can't play in the NFL?

Just because it's happened before doesn't mean it's not happening now. No one is making up the issues with O-line, running game, wide receiver's leading the league in drops. This is reality, it sucks for Bradford but no one is creating a false narrative of the issues that he is facing. Is he to blame for some of the offense of woes this team is having? Sure, but I still don't believe he is the root cause.

early on, Bradford looked bad. Very uncomfortable. But the line play was horrible. The line has played much better since about week 4. Bradford's red zone interceptions were inexcusable. He's definitely had his issues. But anyone watching the game Sunday night knows that if the receivers catch the 7 or 8 very catchable balls, bradford played well enough to beat an undefeated team in the road. Bradford hasn't been great this year, but anyone blaming him for Sunday's loss is just a clueless blind hater.

No. He didn't. They scored 16 points. That's not good enough with the number of plays we had. And stop with this dropped pass false narrative. Yes they had drops. So does everyone else. And no the Eagles don't lead the league in dropped passes. Yes they are up there but so are teams like Atlanta, Carolina and New England. They seem to be able to over come them so far.

Says who? Because they have trouble adding.

Whether it's drop rate or total number, Eagles are 3rd.

Just because it's happened before doesn't mean it's not happening now. No one is making up the issues with O-line, running game, wide receiver's leading the league in drops. This is reality, it sucks for Bradford but no one is creating a false narrative of the issues that he is facing. Is he to blame for some of the offense of woes this team is having? Sure, but I still don't believe he is the root cause.
early on, Bradford looked bad. Very uncomfortable. But the line play was horrible. The line has played much better since about week 4. Bradford's red zone interceptions were inexcusable. He's definitely had his issues. But anyone watching the game Sunday night knows that if the receivers catch the 7 or 8 very catchable balls, bradford played well enough to beat an undefeated team in the road. Bradford hasn't been great this year, but anyone blaming him for Sunday's loss is just a clueless blind hater.
No. He didn't. They scored 16 points. That's not good enough with the number of plays we had. And stop with this dropped pass false narrative. Yes they had drops. So does everyone else. And no the Eagles don't lead the league in dropped passes. Yes they are up there but so are teams like Atlanta, Carolina and New England. They seem to be able to over come them so far.

Let's be fair here. Rogers or Brady would get shell-shocked working behind what is universally considered the worst line in football, add in in a WR corps that rivals some teams practice squad and you have a recipe for wasted talent. As a life long Rams fan I am as excited as anyone that Fisher came aboard and while he's had a TON of holes to fill it's almost criminal how he has done almost nothing to support Bradford. Scott Wells will hopefully be a nice pick up but the rest of the line is garbage and how they didn't address WR's in the FA market is beyond me. I like the defensive moves but Bradford is the future (or a least near future) and your best shot at building a contending team in the coming 2-3 years. A strong defense does you nothing if you can't score.There is no doubt this is a make or break year for Sam. If he spends the entire year running for his life trying to find WR's that can't gain separation instead of re-building that confidence he's so clearly lost he's done for. And unfortunately it won't be the first time the Rams have wrecked what could have been a franchise QB. Marc Bulger anyone?......

I still think he has upside...great rookie season can't be overlooked.He was throwing to Pop Warner players last year.

I don't get it.Bradford was very good as a rookie on a terrible team. Then had a poor year while recovering from an injury, on an even worse team, with pinheaded coaching.I think maybe give him a chance with at least a mediocre club and a decent coach before you run him out on a rail. I think people will be coming around on the Rams in a big way by the end of this year, even though they're still only a so-so team in terms of talent, and I think Bradford will be regarded as a big part of the reason why.

Whether they have the most drops or the third most drops, all you have to do is watch the games to see how it's stalling drives, costing us touchdowns, or bouncing right into defenders' hands. It's infuriating to watch as a fan. We literally don't have a single reliable receiver.

I'll agree, the pass catchers have been poor. As a team, they are third worst. Taking just the WRs, they are dead last and worst in several years.

The WR corps in PHI stinks on ice. Jettisoned DJax, Maclin. Matthews, Huff, Agholor don't look to be worth the investment. Austin and Cooper shouldn't be on the field. These decisions over the last two years (two diff GM's) have collectively harmed this team as it comes to WR corps.

The whole point isn't to argue ratings as IMO drops are crazy subjective, and lots are on the QB. It's one more piece of information to analyze, though, and a telling one.

Bottom line: Sam's been inconsistent, made bad decisions, missed throws, and had far less help than the average team. I hope PHI goes a different direction as an Eagles fan, but that's not going to happen until 2016.

Strange that Foles has had more drops, by %, than Bradford.

The total drops are more important than those of just WRs.

Yep. STL and PHI. Two of the worst WR corps. Bradford wasn't placed with great supporting casts, IMO, but what #1 pick is? He has to elevate the guys around him at some point, and he's had some time in the league to start (or have been doing) just that. STL has been lacking WR talent since Holt/Bruce and PHI decimated theirs over the last two years, and that does make it harder.

I've never been a Bradford believer but he needs help. Not just from the WR, from the coaches. They simply have to start using more 2 TE sets, featuring the TEs and RBs more. Chip doesn't seem capable of altering his approach, though.

Ummmm is this a quiz? I'd say that they each have to get their #### together. Matthews drops two a game. Two of his drops this season went straight to a defender. Not sure what you're shooting for, but I'll guess their drops are either Chips fault or Bradford's. Lol Edited by JuniorNB

And before you went on your pissing match with me, I was merely saying that the excuses for Bradford have to stop. Yes these receivers are bad.

Average to bad QBs do nothing for them like we're seeing. Bradford is on par with Brian Hoyer and Ryan Fitzpatrick right now. Is that what we're shooting for?

JORDAN Matthews Is A huge disappointment. He was coming on nicely last season. Chip was counting on him to step on as number one. It's not his fault he suddenly has something mental going on. I didn't see that coming and neither did you. The lack of a number one receiver is killing us.

Bradford is not Brady or Rodgers. Those guys aren't available. And he's not Roethlisberger or Luck either. Not sure why you were expecting him to be. He's improving. His obkh pick against Carolina was off of Matthews hands. There were 7 or 8 drops that game. It was still a one possession game on the road against an undefeated team. There's a Bye coming up. Lets see Chip earn his money and make some adjustments. I'm hoping they can. They are very much in the thick of things. They've lost very close games to an undefeated team and a one loss team. Only one team (Dallas) looked like they were significantly better than us. Missed field goals, bad drops, stupid penalties....all as significant and as much to blame as Bradford's play. Plenty of blame to go around. But despite all of thst, we're in every game and just a game out if first.

And I think that's why it pisses me off so much. Every game we start slow. 10 first quarter points all year and averaging only 8.5 points per game in the first half. All the penalties, the turnovers, the drops. We're playing terrible and we're 3-4 because of the defense with moments of offense. Imagine how good we'd be if we had some continuity at QB and Wr?

And as for JMatt, we all saw the signs. We all just ignored them. We all asked, how can a guy be a #1 but not play on the outside or run deep routes? We just believed in Chip and figured he knew what he was doing. So maybe JMatt is not a #1 and maybe we should have paid the guy that was to stay.
