Sam Bradford Injury Update: St. Louis Rams' Offense Still Terrible

To anyone who has gone so far off the Sam Bradford bandwagon that the St. Louis Rams starting A.J. Feeley seems like an okay deal, a Week 13 injury update: The Rams' offense is still terrible, even when Sam Bradford isn't playing. In fact, they're probably more terrible, because Sam Bradford is considerably better than A.J. Feeley.

Minutes into the second quarter Feeley is 3-for-6 with 38 yards, a sack—surprise, the offensive line is still not great—and a fumble that pinned the Rams' defense, which is also not very good, against their own goal line and somehow only led to a field goal.

Sam Bradford hasn't been very good this year—at best, he's been mediocre, the slightly underrated equivalent to his considerably overrated, Pat Shurmur-ized rookie season. But this Rams offense has more problems than just their underachieving would-be wünderkind, and until something gives in terms of these quarterbacks' offensive weapons—so far Feeley has found Austin Pettis, Brit Miller, and Nick Miller, in order of relative fame—and their coaching staff, whoever's in there is going to continue to disappoint you.
