Bradford-Impresses-Rams-Lose-21-7

With the NFL more and more becoming a passing-driven league, it’s vital for any championship-caliber team to have a healthy, effective quarterback. It may have been just two drives, but the Rams look like they’re on the right track in that department with Sam Bradford’s return in Saturday’s 21-7 loss to the Packers. As head coach Jeff Fisher said was the plan, Bradford played into the second quarter. He connected on nine of his 12 passes for 101 yards and a touchdown. The quarterback wasn’t sacked, but did take a couple of hits and got up fine after each of them. The Rams’ first drive stalled out after 10 plays, including a deep incompletion down the right side to wideout Kenny Britt. The next time the Rams had the ball -- with play in the second quarter -- Bradford opened the possession with a play-action pass deep over the middle to wide receiver Brian Quick. The play went 41 yards to the Green Bay 35-yard line.

Commencement, it is said, is a beginning. Yet graduations are also the end of an era--for students and their parents. For the kids, it's a time of excitement and promise. For parents, it's a bit more bittersweet.

What will the future hold for the Class of 2015? Time will tell.

My youngest has now graduated from high school. Back in 1980, I was the youngest of my family who graduated.
