Jake Plummer tells Jody Oehler on The Drive that Sam Bradford looked scared on Sunday in the Arizona Cardinals 16-14 loss to the Chicago Bears.
What I saw most of the game was a QB (Sam Bradford) playing kinda scared. Playing tentatively, not stretching the field. There were openings down field and he wasn’t getting to them. But those openings were going to require that he take a shot in the pocket
The former Cardinals signal-caller thinks the team didn't play to win in its third consecutive loss to open the season.
Before the half they had 3rd and 14 or 3rd and 12, and they ran a draw play with over two minutes left. That’s playing not to win. That’s not playing attack ball. That’s playing “oh we’ve got a 14-3 lead, our defense is playing well. Let’s just be safe.” That gets your ass beat in the NFL.
Jake "The Snake" is excited to see what rookie Josh Rosen can do now that he's the Cardinals starting quarterback.
I’d rather see a rookie come in there and make those throws and throw an interception or a pick six, but at least he’s pulling the trigger and he’s taking hits and he’s standing in there and doing what a quarterback needs to do.
Plummer believes the time is right for Rosen to takeover after seeing action in Sunday's loss.
This is a good move. It’s time. You drafted in the first round to play him.
Rosen completed 4/7 passes in his debut for 36 yards and an interception. The 10th overall pick out of UCLA makes his first career start as the Cardinals look to avoid the first 0-4 record in franchise history at home against division foe, Seattle.
