It Appears Sam Bradford Is Not Happy About The Eagles Trading Their Entire Franchise For His Replacement
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that Bradford is mad about the trade and feels the challenge.
“He’s hot,” a source told Schefter. “Who wouldn’t be? This is Philly saying, ‘We don’t see (you) as long-term answer.’ He’s mad and wants to show everyone who’s best.”
Here's the real question, do you think Sam Bradford is more upset that the Eagles are actively trying to replace him, or more mad that they just traded away every asset they had to get better this year? That's a double whammy if I have ever seen one. I don't care what the Rams or Eagles management have to say, you absolutely have to build through the draft to be successful in today's NFL. Yes, a quarterback is of the upmost importance, but it doesn't mean dick if you don't surround him with young, cheap, productive pieces. The Eagles just traded - well - pretty much all of those young, cheap, productive pieces for another quarterback. Probably gave Sam Bradford that two year, $35 million contract so that he would just bite the pillow when they inevitably bent him over and fucked him in the ass. Just a little hush money for when the Eagles completely compromised the rest of his career by making it impossible for him to prevail in Philadelphia. I can already hear it now, "we'll give Sam Bradford every chance to succeed". Unfortunately that rings a lot less true when they just shipped all of his chances to succeed out of town. Now, I say this knowing that Sam Bradford is mediocre at his position, and was probably going to get replaced sooner rather than later. Still, seems like a bit of a slap in the face to fleece your own franchise to do so in such an abrupt manner. It's one thing to make a move for the future instead of the present. It's another thing to make a stupid move and jeopardizes your present and future...
