Sam Bradford's Agent Makes Sam Bradford Sound Like A Huge Pussy

samps

Transcribed from BGN – “He was excited about signing back with Philadelphia and the contract was, I think, pretty good for him. And then Chase [Daniel] came on, and they paid him a substantial amount of money to be on the roster as well. And I don’t think that anybody foresaw the [trade up to] second pick in the [NFL] Draft which we anticipate, obviously, to be a quarterback.

So I think from that situation Sam’s only been in the league for six years, and he wants to go some place and be there and know he’s going to stay as long as he plays well. His situation now in Philadelphia is different. It’s one of those things where I completely understand from where Howie [Roseman’s] standpoint and the Philadelphia Eagles, they signed Sam and they had no idea they were going to come up and get the second pick in the draft and to have that be a quarterback. Even being able to sign Chase, certainly not sure of that when they signed Sam.

But nevertheless, none of this is personal, it’s just business. And so from our perspective it is that Sam wants the opportunity to try to go some place and not only be the starter but be the starter there long-term. There’s a couple of things that go along with this. If you’re on a two year contract and the second pick in the draft is behind you, then you better really play well because you’re going to hear it from the fans if you don’t. You better play well or your teammates are going to look at you sideways and wonder about when the next guy is going to step in. I think from that standpoint too it’s that’s the other players understand you’re a short-term guy. And you’re going to be out of there even if you play well because you can hopefully be traded or something like that before you contract expires. Sam would like to forego all of that.

From this standpoint the ideal situation is that, he understands he’s under contract [with Philadelphia] for two years, but the offseason program is voluntary and he can certainly make his wishes known with regard to wanting to go some place else and set up and be there for the rest of his career. Sam’s a competitor and he wants to go some place that he’s the man. He just doesn’t want to be there holding a place card and then wondering where he’s going to go at the end of the year. He’d liked to go some place where he can participate and play.

Last year, he was coming off of the ACL two years in a row, he got through the 14 games and his stats over those 14 games put him in about the middle of the starters. If you look at the second half of those 14 games, in the last seven, he was in the top eight or so. And as he got closer to the finish, in his last three games his statistics were really pretty very remarkable.

He doesn’t view himself as somebody who is a stop-gap kind of quarterback and he wants to go some place and take a chance on being with a team for a long time and I can’t blame him for that.”

Well this doesn’t do Sam any favors. Is what his agent say true? Absolutely. But it’s just shit you don’t say out loud. I get it. Bradford is pissed off and wants to be traded to a team that wants him for the long term. I also get that the Eagles just gave him $22 million GUARANTEED to play a game for a living. Shut your shit up and fulfill the contract. I HATE calling Bradford a pussy, especially after the absolute beating he took almost every play last season and still bounced back up eager for the next snap. I suppose he’s more of a mental midget here. And it’s a big time mistake trying to play the PR game vs. Howie Roseman. That snake would slither his way to the top in any situation.

So now Bradford has dug himself a hole in which he can’t climb out of and play for the Eagles. I wish it was possible for him to pull a Costanza/Handsome Hank and show up like nothing has happened, but we’re too far down the rabbit hole at this point. He’s gotta go. Shit, might as well get this guy back. He’s ready to report for duty from the senior center.

BONUS: Here’s Michael Vick’s pinned Facebook post. Yes, it’s an offensive drive from Madden 2004. Totally unrealistic, IMO. No, not the drop back 45 yards and still get a positive gain. I’m talking more of the textbook baseball slide at the end. T-ball players knew how to get dirty more properly than Michael Vick ever did.
