St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford is expected to take more of a leadership role on offense in 2013, especially with RB Steven Jackson (Falcons) having moved on during the offseason. "You now we saw it was coming (last season)," head coach Jeff Fisher said. "Sam really took things over the second half of the season. We've got guys who can stand up and take charge and carry the torch. I'm not concerned about that. Sam, I was very impressed with how he handled things."

St. Louis Rams head coach Jeff Fisher indicated the play of QB Sam Bradford was negatively affected by some of the other players on offense this season but is happy with Bradford performed in 2012. "His play was directly affected by the people around him. There's times when it's difficult to step up in the pocket and make the good throw. That's not the quarterback's fault. That's whatever's going on out front," Fisher said. "We're pleased with what Sam did. He's got an exciting future. I know he's really excited about coming back in here in April and getting started and not having to learn another offense."

Updating a previous item, St. Louis Rams WR Danny Amendola (clavicle) was limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 24. QB Sam Bradford said it would be a big boost if Amendola could return for Week 8. "It would mean a lot. Obviously, I've said it before, a lot of our offense runs through Danny when he's healthy," Bradford said. "Just from the initial reports, I thought it was going to be quite a bit longer for him to get back on the field. But any time you get him back out there, I think it brought a whole spark to the whole group today, and just lifted everyone's spirits seeing him back out there."
Fantasy Tip: Owners should keep a close eye on just how much Amendola practices the rest of this week. Initial reports said his recovery time would be roughly six weeks. Nevertheless, his participation in practice, although limited, is a positive sign.

St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford said his decision to wait another year before declaring for the NFL Draft was not because he wanted to avoid playing for the Detroit Lions. "None at all," Bradford said when asked if playing in Detroit factored into his decision. "I went back to school just because I felt I wasn't ready for the NFL. At that point I had only played two seasons. I think I was still 20, 21 years old. I just felt I could really use another year in school to mature, both physically and mentally. Even though I came back and got hurt, I still feel that year helped me develop as a person."

"You take, for example, Steve Smith's case. He hasn't really had an opportunity to work with Sam. We'll play as many as we can earlier in the game and with the numbers down, they'll be playing throughout the game."

Bradford has absorbed 70 sacks in 26 career games through two seasons. "That's a lot of what I've talked about with Schotty so far," Bradford said. "Two days ago in camp, I thought I had a really good practice. I'm not sure the ball hit the ground once. And we got in the film room, and (Schottenheimer) was all over me about getting the ball out of my hands even quicker, to eliminate hits. He's made it a big point ... It's part of my job to help the protection and get the ball out of my hands and make sure that, even if it's not a sack, I'm eliminating the unnecessary hits."
Tue, 07 Aug 2012 14:55:33 -0700

Bradford is back to his rookie ways under new offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer, and the word is that Bradford looks re-vitalized. He also started lifting weights and is throwing with authority.

"In 2011, Bradford - with very few exceptions - did not look like the same, confident pocket quarterback that I saw as a rookie," Jaworski said. "He was tentative in the pocket, a function of both erratic offensive line play and receivers that could not win on the outside. But I was troubled by Bradford's increasing tendency to anticipate the rush. I call that 'Cabin Fever.' And Bradford struggled with that."

"The only time it might've crossed my mind was if, for some reason, we were to get stuck (with the No. 2 pick overall in the 2012 NFL Draft) because we didn't get what we really wanted. Do you take the kid and trade him from there? That might've been the only time, and that would've been the riskiest of risky moves. But I'll be clear: We decided early on that Sam was out quarterback."
