Report: Bradford will start at quarterback against Seahawks

One of the myriad questions on the minds of the millions and millions of people waiting with baited breath for the epic Monday Night Football showdown between the Rams and Seahawks is whether or not Sam Bradford will be starting at quarterback for St. Louis.

The answer has arrived. Charley Casserley of CBS reports that Bradford, who has been hampered by a high ankle sprain, will indeed get the start. That means the legions of Tom Brandstater fans will have to wait a little bit longer to see their man get a shot on the big stage and it also means that Bradford should be in the running for most That Guys of the night from Jon Gruden.

Bradford’s sophomore NFL season has been a frustrating one, although it hasn’t been bad enough to knock offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels off the list of possible Todd Haley replacements in Kansas City. The Chiefs might not be the only Missouri team looking for a new head coach when the season comes to a close, although it seems unlikely that McDaniels would wind up replacing Steve Spagnuolo if the head man does get the axe.

  1. Hawks will still smoke them. Seattle and AZ are still in the playoff hunt, and Detroit at least has 1 more guaranteed loss coming to GB. Those boys are gonna be playing with some extra fire now. Funny thing is people make all these cracks against the NFCW yet if multiple teams like Detroit, Chicago, Atlanta, and NYG or Dallas hit 9-7, SEA and AZ hold tiebreaker scenarios over most of them and at least one would get in. Would be nothing funnier than seeing that NFC “weak” as you call it sending 2 teams to the playoffs

  2. I’d love to watch with the rest of America this spectacular matchup, but instead I’m gonna watch a Justin Beiber Christmas with my daughters buceause it will probably be more entertaining then watching Sam Bradford play catch with the Seahawks.

  3. Bradford needs to get back in so he can keep pace with Tebow in career wins for QBs from the 2010 draft.

  4. I don’t remember seeing such snarky comments prior to a dream team game. Good Gosh Josh do you prefer to see a team that was smoked by the Seahawks on national television? Or do just prefer to see a team that does not know how to play defense? Or perhaps you just enjoy watching a team that has lost three out of four to the weak weak weak NFC West.

    I sure hope we are all able to view the Eagles on national television next year because it has been such a pleasure to watch a well coached team give maximum effort every time they play.

    I do agree this is a lame game and I’m a Ram’s fan BUT mentioning watching Justin Beiber is grounds for you to have your man card pulled

  6. With Brandstater the Rams weren’t going to cross the 50 yard line; Bradford should be able to get them to the 20 at least once.

  7. In 2010, the national media snickered and made jokes about the NFC West having mediocre or worse teams. A 7-9 Seattle team beat out a 7-9 St.Louis team for the NFC West Title.

    Now, in 2011, we set here with the NFC East, the media’s favorite division, being as mediocre, or worse than, the 2010 NFC West.

    Where are the jokes and snide remarks at now?

  8. This has been the worst season for Monday night games in ten years. How does Jacksonville have two monday night games? Why is this a Monday night game? Atleast Cam Newton provides entertainment. We’ll have atleast two monday night games in Charlotte next year.

  9. A few weeks ago, in St. Louis, with Bradford healthier than he is tonight, the Seahawks beat the Rams 24-7. St. Louis’ one TD came after a first quarter Tavaris Jackson pick set them up with a short field.

    Hard to imagine how he’ll fare any better in Seattle.

    7-9 WON the West last year. Right now we have two teams tied at 7-6 in the East. It looks like 9 wins will win the division and at the very least it will be 8. It is the worst division in football this year, but it is far from the ineptness that was the 2010 NFC West.

    2010 NFC West After 14 weeks
    St.Louis 6-7
    Seattle 6-7
    San Francisco 5-8
    Arizona 4-9

    2010 NFC East After 14 weeks
    NY Giants 7-6
    Dallas 7-6
    Philadelphia 5-8
    Washington 4-9

    Not that different after all, huh?

  12. The big difference between last year’s nfc west and this year’s nfc east is everyone expected the West to suck last year. Iggles and Cowgirls were supposed to be good with Giants and Skins pulling up the rear. Nobody saw the Iggles folding so badly. Besides the West still sucks save for San Francisco.
