Experts have talked about the problem the last few years the Vikings have had with the shotgun offense, preferred also by Teddy Bridgewater. This is bad.ormer #1 overall draft pick Sam Bradford has never once won more games than he’s lost in a season. Sam Bradford missed 37 games over the past five seasons.
It’s almost as if maybe the run and pass game are related somehow — like maybe defenses don’t respect the passing game and collapse on the run, or maybe the run game doesn’t work as well out of Bradford’s preferred shotgun set-up. Of course part of the reason for that is because he’s always hurt.
Last year Bradford’s Eagles signed league-leading rusher De Marco Murray, who had just run for 1850 yards in 2014 for the Cowboys. Isn’t it interesting how good these running backs were, right up until Sam Bradford was their quarterback?
At age 27, SJax played several years of his prime with Bradford.
The Vikings will be turning to Bradford over veteran Shaun Hill once Bradford learns yet another new system. Bradford passed up a chance to test free agency and signed a two-year, $36 million with $22 million guaranteed in March.
