ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Usually, Sam Bradford is quick with a response. This time, the St. Louis Rams' fast-rising rookie quarterback was stumped.
The question: What's the hardest part of your job?
Bradford's answer: He doesn't know, because he's got an awesome job.
Rookies are supposed to struggle, get flustered by defensive strategies. It hasn't happened yet with this guy. After giving up 289 yards and two touchdowns to Bradford on Sunday, the Seattle Seahawks felt as if they'd faced a seasoned leader.
Four games in, Bradford is probably the best quarterback in the NFC West on a team that's tied for the division lead. He's thriving even though the Rams (2-2) have a bargain basement batch of pass catchers.
