Sam Bradford is not starting week one and it's not because his knees have crumpled into dust. The Vikings traded a first and fourth round pick for the former number one overall selection and overall overpaid lucky bastard. Sam Bradford has somehow managed to make millions and millions of dollars with a record of 25 -37-1and he will not have a chance to add to that record because he is not starting week one.
Bradford has only been a Viking for about a week now, and I don't know if you know this but learning an NFL playbook is hard. Learning and applying the NFL playbook to an NFL game against NFL players is probs kinda tough. So the Vikings are sending Shaun Hill, who must feel like a polished turd on Sunday, out to play quarterback against the Titans.
I don't think you can look into this move as anything other than Sam Bradford doesn't know the playbook yet. Nobody would trade a first round pick for a guy just to sit him unless they were Howie Roseman's twin brother. I will say that I am looking forward to seeing the Oklahoma connection in Bradford and AP once he is ready to play.
In the meantime, let's go Carson Wentz, baby!!
