Sam Bradford Injury Highlights Seahawks Depth


It’s been 15 years since the St. Louis Rams found out that Kurt Warner can play.

More from Seattle Seahawks News

Dick Vermeil was so convinced Warner couldn’t replace Trent Green, he was choked up during the injury press conference. The fact that Green was injured in the preseason made the injury even more difficult to accept.

However, 1999 became a magical year for Warner and the Rams. Vermeil backed away from the ledge and did what he does best: he motivated his players. Warner believed in every rah-rah speech, every word, every idea Vermeil threw his way.

Greatest Show On Turf indeed.

Enter 2014: Sam Bradford lost for the year in a preseason game. Once again, Ram Nation is crushed as we enter a new season.

Even though Bradford is 18-30-1 as the Rams QB, some are convinced the 2014 season is lost. Eighteen wins in 49 starts is less than spectacular. I guess those 18 wins showed a lot of potential.

Not sure, but I thought about Seattle losing Wilson. In 37 starts the Seahawk QB stud has 28 wins. Most in NFL history after year two years. Safe to say, Seattle loses a lot more with Wilson being injured versus Bradford.

Yet, Seattle is well prepared if Wilson does go down.

Tarvaris Jackson is one of the most talented No.2 guys in the league. Or, hey, if you want a guy who has studied Wilson and has similar moves go with Terrelle Pryor. Heck, even B.J. Daniels has looked good. Seattle is prepared.

Percy Harvin was missed last year but WR depth lessened the amount he was missed. The running back corp is clearly strong after Lynch. The defense is loaded. Most impressive so far this year is the incredible speed. Paul Richardson, the speedy WR out of Colorado, is a great example. His 4.33 time in the 40 made Pete Carroll take notice. No NFL team has as much depth as Seattle (insert O-line comments below).

A Couple Additional Thoughts:

Richie Incognito is a tool. He’s been a problem for teams and teammates his entire career. But he is one of the best guards in the NFL. Like it or not he’ll be back soon.

Cliff Avril is just awesome. This guy is underrated, something Denver found out last February. Ask Peyton Manning what he saw most in the Super Bowl. I have a feeling it was the number 56.
