Sam Bradford: Eagles offense 'firing on all cylinders'

Print

Sam Bradford has taken the field for only four series this preseason. All four have ended in touchdowns.

Saturday night in a 39-26 victory over the Green Bay Packers, the Philadelphia Eagles' quarterback looked especially dialed in during his three scoring drives. Bradford dropped some beautiful dimes -- the loveliest being a 8-yard wheel route to Darren Sproles that the quarterback dropped into a soup-can-sized bucket.

Afterwards, Bradford agreed with reporters that he took a "huge" step forward in his return from back-to-back ACL tears, via the Philadelphia Daily News.

"I felt really good today. Even before the game, I felt like we had a great week of preparation. I thought that we were ready to go tonight," Bradford said. "We just found a rhythm, a real one. It was nice to come off the field, go back on, keep that rhythm, keep firing."

Bradford finished Saturday 10-of-10 passing for 121 yards and the three touchdowns.

While he's been nearly perfect in preseason, Bradford doesn't expect to score a touchdown in every drive this season.

"I think it would be a little unrealistic to think you're going to have that type of game every time out," Bradford said. "It was good to see the work we put in during the week pay off tonight. I thought our guys up front did a great job of not only pass protection, but in run blocking as well. It seemed like we were firing on all cylinders tonight, and hopefully it's something we can continue to do."

Bradford's accuracy has been on point during his little time this preseason. His pinpoint ball placement has returned to the level he displayed while at Oklahoma, which caused NFL scouts to drool and the St. Louis Rams to make him the No. 1 overall pick. While Bradford hasn't uncorked the deep ball in limited snaps this preseason, his precision is a perfect meld with Chip Kelly's offense.

If he can stay healthy those offensive cylinders could end up firing so fast in 2015 they hit ludicrous speed.
