Sam Bradford makes his final argument

The Rams have found their starting quarterback.
We don't know when Rams coach Steve Spagnuolo will announce anything officially, but rookie Sam Bradford
seemingly ended the team's quarterback debate with a sharp drive on Thursday night.
Bradford finished 6-of-6 for 68 yards and a touchdown against the Ravens reserves, his second strong preseason effort in a row. One of his completions was a 36-yarder up the sideline to Danny Amendola
, who made a great adjustment on the ball to make the catch.
It's uncertain whether Rams quarterback A.J. Feeley
will even be healthy enough to start in Week One, but we can't imagine it makes a difference now. Bradford finishes the preseason 33-of-55 for 338 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions.

Colt McCoy has a rough start
Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on September 2, 2010 8:27 PM ET
was excited to get extended playing time
in the fourth preseason game so that he could change some of the negative impressions from his first training camp.
So far, it's only getting worse.
McCoy fumbled his first snap from center, turning the ball over. He took a sack on third-and-one on his second drive when there was an open man underneath.
It will be the last we see of McCoy for a while, but he doesn't have to worry about his roster spot. The Cleveland Plain-Dealer
has confirmed he will make the team.
Rookie running back Montario Hardesty
had no such tough start. In his first preseason snaps, he carried the ball three straight times for 13 yards, including a one-yard touchdown. He showed great foot quickness and power on the plays, carrying defenders with him.
McCoy did a great job bouncing back after his slow start, completing all 13 of his passes for 131 yards before leaving.
The 13-yard Hardesty drive was the only Browns touchdown with McCoy, but the rookie third-round quarterback made a lot of composed, accurate underneath throws. It will give him something positive to remember the preseason by.
