St. Louis Rams Offensive MVP Through the First Quarter of the NFL Season

Posted By Bear Heiser On Oct 7 2010 @ 8:47 pm In St. Louis Rams | No Comments

Offensive MVP: QB Sam Bradford

A few quick stats:

Bradford has thrown six TD’s, six INT’s and zero fumbles.

He’s thrown for 944 yards, 12th best in the NFL.

On third down, he’s 28/49 for 350 yards, two TDs and no INTs. His passer rating on third down is 93.0, which ranks him 10th best in NFL.

Bradford has gotten better with each week that has passed.

As the season progresses, the competition will be stronger.

As the season progresses, more will be on the line with each game.

Only four QB’s have thrown more passes than Sam Bradford through four weeks. At Oklahoma, Bradford never threw more than 483 passes during a season. He is on pace to throw the ball 632 times in 2010 if the current pace continues.

Kurt Warner never threw the ball more than 546 times in a season while with the Rams.

In 2009, his final season at OU, he played in only two games because of an injury to his throwing shoulder.

My advice to the Rams coaching staff:

BEWARE of BURNOUT

***Honorable Mention***

WR Mark Clayton

Rams WR Mark Clayton

Clayton arrived to the Rams late in the preseason after being traded by the Ravens. It didn’t take long for him to develop a serious relationship with QB Sam Bradford.

In Week 1, Clayton caught 10 passes and now leads the team with 22 catches for 300 yards and two TD’s.

Most glaring stat:

Of his 22 receptions, 15 of them were for first downs.

Nice work for a guy the Baltimore gave up on.
