Sam Bradford was the #1 overall pick in the 2011 NFL draft, he was drafted by the Rams, and he was coming off a Heisman season at Oklahoma. Everyone thought Sam Bradford was the next elite QB, he had the big time arm, he had the right quarterback build, and he was supposedly exceptional above the shoulders. He went to the Rams and was supposed to be the savior, we all know how that went, he had absolutely no talent around him, and he got beat up due to the lack of protection he got from his make shift offensive line. That led to him needing two ACL surgeries and a unsuccessful start to his NFL career. He was then signed by the Eagles who had him for one year where he broke basically every Philly passing record, but he just couldn't win games due to lack of surrounding talent. Now, this year he gets traded to Minnesota for a 1st round pick, everyone is killing the Vikings saying what a dumb trade it is, but does Minnesota make many bad decisions upstairs? No, almost never. So now Bradford comes into an organization where he doesn't need to be THE GUY, he now longer is being looked at as the #1 overall pick that has to carry a team to victory. The Vikings are a team that is led by their defense, so now Bradford can play within himself, let the defense shutdown the other teams offense, and slowly pick apart the defense he is facing while taking care of the ball so he doesn't put his defense in bad field positioning. Sam Bradford has only played two games so I don't want to get carried away, but he's starting to look like a real NFL quarterback, and he is certainly better than what they had with Teddy Bridgewater. The Vikings having to trade for Bradford was a blessing in disguise, they now have a QB who can throw the ball down the field with good accuracy, something Bridgewater couldn't do. Bradford is a lot like Jim Plunkett, a guy that was a highly touted prospect coming into the league, got thrown into horrible situation with no talent around him, finally found a team with a good defense and other talented players on offense, and he won two Super Bowls once he got onto the right team. Bradford isn't Peyton Manning worthy first overall pick, but he was definitley not a bust by any means, and he could start building a legacy in Minnesota if he can keep this up. I bet if he gets rid of those horrible sleeves he will be even better, just a piece of advice though.
