Burke: Comparing Luck and Bradford for 2013

This week for Chris Burke's Friday Toss-Up series, the subject was Andrew Luck or Sam Bradford in 2013: which quarterback is poised for a better year? Despite some of his twitter followers riding the Bradford train, Burke (wisely, in my opinion) chose Luck

In his one season in the league, though, Luck proved more consistent than Bradford. He’s also just four wins shy of Bradford’s career total, despite playing 26 fewer games. St. Louis’ bevy of options at receiver and running back may be exciting on paper, but it’s also a very young, inexperienced group. Bradford does not have a Reggie Wayne at his disposal.

If nothing else, Luck can lean on Wayne when things are not going well. Who will be that guy for Bradford? His two leading receivers from last season, Danny Amendola and Brandon Gibson, now wear other uniforms.
