Chudzinski brought many of Auburn's read option plays to the Panthers and incorporated them into his playbook. He built that offense around what Cam did well in college. It fit Cam like a glove.
Vick didn't sniff 63% completions until he was released from prison. He never completed more than 56% of his passes as a Falcon.
Yeah, what RGIII is doing passing the football IS totally different than what Cam/Vick/VY did as rookies.
Other than Cam it's not even really comparable, and even he lacks RGIII's accuracy.
Back to the OP, I think Bradford is a guy that needs a borderline great oline, a solid run game and better size/speed at WR if the Rams ever hope to maximize their investment in him.
WHen the SKins played the Rams, Bradford made Amendola look like Steve Smith and he was literally the only guy who consistently got open.
Some QBs elevate mediocre talent around them, like Tom Brady or Peyton.
Some QBs are better suited for maximizing the talent surrounding them, like Drew Brees.
Most HOF QBs had very talented supporting casts on offense. It's the new breed of elite NFL QBs who are winning with JAGs at the skill positions and along the oline.
