    Bulger displays tact as opponent gets fined for hit

    Rams quarterback Marc Bulger, an admitted political junkie, could be excused for his slightly bleary-eyed look Wednesday morning at Rams Park. He was up until about 1 a.m., monitoring the election returns on television.

    Bulger, a Republican who attended the presidential debate last month at Washington University, acknowledged that he was happy with the results. "I am," he said. "Just the fact that it's decided and we're not going to have to sit around and wait. Either way it would've gone, I think that would've been good for everyone, to have some clarity. And now that we have it, it's good."

    Bulger was equally diplomatic when asked his reaction to the $7,500 fine the NFL levied against Miami defensive end Jason Taylor. Taylor was cited for unnecessary roughness for body-slamming Bulger to the ground in the fourth quarter Oct. 24 as Bulger threw a touchdown pass to wide receiver Shaun McDonald. Bulger suffered a bruised right shoulder, but no penalty was called.

    "You don't like to see guys fined," Bulger said. "I'm sure it wasn't intentional. I just wish they would've thrown a flag rather than have him fined. But it's over with now."


    Looker and Cleeland miss practice session

    Wide receiver Dane Looker and tight end Cam Cleeland, both nursing ankle injuries, sat out Wednesday's practice. Looker, who suffered a high-ankle sprain vs. the Dolphins, probably will miss Sunday's gave against New England. Cleeland, who turned his lower ankle in practice Monday, is expected to be ready.

    "We're on the mend physically," coach Mike Martz said. "This is probably as healthy as we've been."

    Linebacker Brandon Chillar, who pulled his right hamstring in the first quarter at Miami, returned to practice Wednesday. He was hurt after making his second successive start at middle linebacker. "It's part of the game," said Chillar, the Rams' fourth-round draft choice last April. "You've just got to roll with this type of stuff. There are a lot of games left."

    Grant Williams (neck, shoulder) participated in most of the work Wednesday after seeing limited action Monday. Williams, who shared time at right tackle with Scott Tercero in team drills, said the "stinger" he suffered in the second half against the Dolphins left his right side "a little weak, but it's doing pretty good. I'm doing a little more each day in practice, and we'll see how it goes."

    Defensive tackle Jimmy Kennedy (foot), linebacker Robert Thomas (ankle), running back and kick returner Arlen Harris (hamstring), defensive end Tyoka Jackson and cornerback Travis Fisher (arm) practiced without limitations.

    Looker was listed as doubtful on Wednesday's injury report. Chillar, Cleeland, Harris, Jackson, Thomas and Williams were probable. Neither Kennedy nor Fisher was included in the injury report.

    If Looker can't play Sunday, the Rams will have to find a new holder for kicker Jeff Wilkins. Although Bulger held for an extra point vs. the Dolphins after Looker was injured, Martz said he wouldn't risk his No. 1 quarterback. He indicated that backup QB Chris Chandler probably would fill the role.

    Probably the best answer he could give. Well done, Marc.

    Nice to know we have a good 'ole Republican quarterback at the helm.

    FYI, no democratic supporter has ever quarterbacked his team to a SuperBowl victory.








    Ok that's BS.

    Interesting thought. I would almost bet that Steve Young (Utah) would be a Republican. Yet he spent all but two years of his career in the seed of the most liberal Democratic stronghold (San Fran) in the country. Hmm, wonder how much heat he had to deal with around election time?

    It's hard for me to appreciate how Grant thinks he is any weaker with the injury as opposed to without it. Giving up 9 of the 16 sacks prior to Dolphins game was pretty dam weak as is.
