I’m routinely dumbfounded by the current success of Sam Bradford. Here’s a quarterback who arrived in Minnesota weeks before the start of the regular season, learned the playbook in 15 days, and led the Vikings to a surprising 5-0 record; all without a number of key contributors on offense.
As he prepares to face his former team, he enters Week 7 one of the NFL’s most efficient quarterbacks. Through five games this year, he’s completed 70.4 percent of his passes, thrown six touchdowns, and has yet to turn the ball over. That hasn’t been by chance, though; Bradford’s steady play is the result of his pinpoint accuracy, careful decision-making, and a scheme that isn’t asking too much of its signal caller.
And yet, interceptions are an inevitable reality in the NFL — no qualifying quarterback has ever gone a season without throwing one. Bradford is flourishing, but it’s unrealistic to think he’ll finish the year with ‘0’ in the interception column. So, I asked the Vikings Territory team to predict when Bradford’s clean streak will end. Find their answers — and a special guest’s response– after the jump!
