Quick thoughts from Sam Bradford
By Mike Sando
DALLAS -- A few comments from St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford after The Associated Press named him its offensive rookie of the year for the 2010 season:
- On the award in general: "It means a lot to me when you look at this award and see who has won it in the past. It reflects what we were able to do as a team this year."
- On Ndamukong Suh winning for defense: "I guess there is a little of a connection between us being taken one and two (in the draft). Last year, going through the draft process, I got to know him a little bit. It is cool that the one and two picks won the offensive and defensive players of the year."
- On his personal highlight from the season: "I think it would probably be the Washington game just for the fact that it was our first win, my first win as a quarterback in the NFL, a memory I am going to have for a long time. I remember being extremely excited about that game."
- On any disappointment after Suh won Pepsi's top rookie award: "No, not at all. If you look at what he did this year, he totally deserves it. I never start out a year wanting to win individual awards. My focus is on the team. When I don't win an award, it doesn't affect me much."
That's it from the Super Bowl media center. I'm debating whether to make the drive back to Fort Worth despite anecdotal reports of horrible traffic. I've got to be back in Dallas for Hall of Fame voting early Saturday.
