    Bulger Needs To Find Middle Ground

    Bulger was in an offense for years that wasn't worried about turnovers, it was all about throwing the ball all over the place without worrying about mistakes. He was allowed to force the ball into tight spots. It worked well a lot of the time, but at times it was horrible.

    Now he is in a controlled offense that really worries about turnovers. He's being taught not to force the ball and not throw if there is any chance of a mistake.

    So Bulger goes from one extreme to the other with learning the new offense. All of the things he learned and was taught by Martz, are now no-no's with Linehan. Bulger looks very tentative with his throws, and is out of sync.

    He needs to find the middle if you will, the inbetween of the Linehan and the Martz offense. He needs to become a little more agressive but not to the point of going against what Linehan is trying to do. Once he becomes comfortable just throwing the ball again and not worrying about if the space is to tight to throw to, he will be fine.

    Be patient people, I'm confident that Marc can find middle ground and make this work.

    BRUUUUUUUUCE

    He will, he just needs time, I am getting so sick of all the disbelievers of Bulger, it's going to be week 3, and we're already wondering if we should trade Bulger to Oakland for Moss? Come on, silly stuff like that is just absurd to even think about. Bulger is a great QB, regardless of what system he is in. It is going to take time...We're gonna have to wait.

    i agree bulger will be fine, but while we are in this offense that is built around not making turnovers,we still have to score some points,so a turnover wont kill us,the way the offense is now 1 turnover could cost us a game.

    That's exactly the point, he needs to find a middle ground where he is comfortable just throwing the ball and not worrying about mistakes, but not getting to reckless throwing the ball into spots where he shouldn't.
