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.

August 9, 2014, will forever be marked in the history books as the date Michael Brown was shot by a Ferguson police officer.

It is the aftermath of that event, however, which history will forever remember. The protesters, the looters, the agitators, the Hands Up Don't Shoot movement, the dramatic announcement of the grand jury, the buildings up in flames. In the process, the community and image of Ferguson was destroyed.
