Full Version: Bradford and the long ball
Eagles Forum > Philadelphia Eagles Message Board > Philadelphia Eagles or Football Related Discussion
I was surprised to see this:
Some positive Sam Bradford stats
Considering the Eagles donít have a true deep threat, itís kind of remarkable that Sam Bradford ranks fifth in the NFL with 12 completions this year of 40 yards or more.

Bradford trails only Eli Manning, Ben Roethlisberger and Carson Palmer, who have 15 each, and Drew Brees, who has 13.

But Eli has Beckham, Roethlisberger has Antonio Brown, Palmer has John Brown, and Brees has Brandin Cooks.

Bradford has completed those 12 long balls to Matthews (3), Riley Cooper, Brent Celek and Nelson Agholor (2 each) and DeMarco Murray, Josh Huff and Ertz (1 each).
Here ...

One more thing from that same piece:
More Ertz
OK, letís finish with a positive one.

Ertz, with his 13 catches for 122 yards against the Redskins along with a game last year against the Redskins when he had 15 catches for 115 yards, became only the fourth tight end in NFL history with two career games of 13 or more receptions for 100 or more yards.

The others are Jason Witten (four), Kellen Winslow (three) and Tony Gonzalez (two).

Ertz is only the third player in NFL history with two games of at least 13 catches and 100 yards against the same team. Andre Johnson of the Texans had two against the Jaguars, and Witten had two against the Giants.

Screw the Ben, I'm feeling optimistic again. Now they need to find a DC and see if they can bring in an experienced, dependable personnel guy to help out.
Another mni-drama for the new administration: How does Sam figure into it?
