Enough with the "I Told You So's"to Sam Bradford

Written by Juan Cena on Monday, October 26 2009 and posted in SWRT

It seems telling Sam Bradford "I told you so" has been in fashion since he originally injured his shoulder, and twice as much as when he re-injured it in the Red River Shootout against Texas. The self-congratulatory crowd of media who said he should have bailed from college last year after winning the Heisman Trophy are now in absolute self-righteous mode. Talk abounds of the millions Bradford gave up this year staying at Oklahoma.
The latest: Deadspin's headline reading "Sam Bradford Reminds You Not to Stay In School, Kids."It points an article written by Dallas Morning News columnist Chuck Carlton, referring to Bradford as a "cautionary tale" for future juniors who could jump from college to the NFL Draft.
Gee, a columnist in Texas criticizing the moves of a quarterback from Oklahoma. What are the odds of that? I wonder what Mr. Carlton thinks of Colt McCoy's making the same "stay in school" move Bradford made? Or if McCoy was the one who ended up injured?
Just lay off Bradford. He wanted to win a championship this year for Oklahoma. He knew what he was doing. He was closer to winning a championship for the Sooners than he probably ever would if he was picked Number One by The Detroit Lions (how's your season been, Matthew Stafford?). Being known as a champion last a lot longer than wealth does in many cases.
And don't feel sorry about Bradford's future financial situation. If surgery goes well he won't fall too far in the NFL Draft. The worst he could do would be to land on a winning team and end up as back-up for a few years. Besides, Bradford's a finance major. He should be able to manage whatever feeble millions he gets from the NFL, and probably better than some of those juniors who skipped graduating.
