Sam Bradford says his shoulder "feels great"

When Rams quarterback Sam Bradford played in his first football game last year, his shoulder exploded on a hit from a 230-pound linebacker.  When Bradford returned later in the season, he hurt it again.

In his first game action since having the shoulder surgically repaired, Bradford took four sacks and multiple additional hits from the Vikings’ reserve defenders.

And his shoulder withstood the punishment. 

“The shoulder feels great,” Bradford said in comments distributed by the team.  “I took a couple hits tonight.  Took a couple, landed on the shoulder.  Feels great, it’s not sore at all.  We’ll see tomorrow how it feels, but right now it feels great.”

To his credit, Bradford said nothing at all about any “problems in protection” or that his offensive line was “outplayed pretty decisively.”  Whether Bradford is as charitable after he’s been tossed around all year like Rottweiler with a rag doll remains to be seen.

    Florio, why you keep making note of the LB that hit Bradford being 230 lbs?? there are 230 lb LBs in the NFL that, if they hit the QB and drive his shoulder into the ground, that thing is going to blow up!

    Florio…you MIGHT mention he:
    Avoided 3 other sacks
    Threw the ball away…correctly, avoiding a pick…3 times
    Only threw ONE bad pass, and the RB one-handed it and pulled it in
    Looked as poised as any of the other QBs, either team, in the game
    I must admit that O-line stunk it up; they have to improve, and in a hurry!

    I fall down and land on my shoulder it doesn’t feel great. Add 200+ lbs and it will be a little sore.
    Add $60 mil to my bank account and cut my legs off I will feel fu%%ing great though.
    Don’t see any Rams QB lasting a full season, a lot of QBs don’t. Hopefully they don’t play Bradford too much this year.

    This guy is a china doll.
    he’s going to get busted up.
    he need to learn how to fall.
    I’m not kidding.

    This is terrible news for the Vikings. If their Defense can’t manage to break this guy, behind that O-Line, how on earth to they expect to send Drew Brees to IR in that first game?
