(FootballStL) -- St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford has a “tradition” of not cutting his hair in midseason, but he admits that this rough season has made him close to pulling out the clippers.
“I have been close,” Bradford said. “This is the one year that has pushed me to the limits. I thought about shaving it and starting clean, but held true to what I’ve done for many years now.”
But in those “many years” Bradford had success. This season the second-year quarterback has thrown only six touchdowns and completed 54.6 percent of his passes. Bradford has also been sacked 32 times in nine games which is one shy of last season’s total which was through 16 games. It might be time to change your luck, Sam.
As for the no-shave November beard?
“I am not going to shave,” Bradford said. “I feel at this point I am going to keep it going. I actually kind of like it, so I think I am going to go another five weeks with it. I feel like after all this time that to cut it now, I just feel like I would be losing a part of myself.”
We obviously do not want Bradford to have to suffer ANOTHER loss this season, but if the Rams continue their losing trend we believe there might be more than just Bradford’s beard being cut at Rams Park.
