    Bulger shouldn't play for the rest of the year.

    Guys, we aren't going to the Superbowl.

    This guy has suffered enough, and I really feel for the guy. I think as a well-respected player, he deserves to (at the least, have the option) sit out the rest of the year and get healthy for next year. I have an inkling that we aren't going to be getting rid of him, because regardless of drafting the QB of the future or not, Spags will more than likely want Bulger to mentor him.

    Your thoughts, my brothers and sisters?

    Re: Bulger shouldn't play for the rest of the year.

    I don't think there is any doubt that it will be his option as to whether he plays again this season or not. If he heals completely, gets the medical okay and wants to play, he should play. If he doesn't feel right for the rest of the season, he shouldn't. He has never appeared to me as a guy who liked sitiing out.

    He's out 3-6. If it's 5 or 6 the best case scenario is that he comes back for 1 game. What's the point?

    If he rushes back and plays for 2 weeks, again, what's the point? As long as they aren't playing for the playoffs, I'd rather have the roster spot.

    Yes, I think we should let him rest for the rest of the year. Let him get back in condition. Meanwhile, with Bulger gone, we need to see what we have in Boller and Null. Boller was a bit rusty when he took over several weeks ago. Let's see if he performs any better.

    Do you really think the guy playing on the broken leg is really going to want to sit out if he can go?

    Re: Bulger shouldn't play for the rest of the year.

    Is 75-80% of Bulger better than 100% of Boller or Null?

    Re: Bulger shouldn't play for the rest of the year.

    A fractured tibia means it would be an extreme long shot for him to come back. As r8rh8rmike pointed out, if by chance he's given clearance before then, he should play.

    I cannot see Marc Bulger willingly coming back here next season as a non-starter. Why would he lend himself to that? If it were me and I still fancied myself as a starter, I'd rather look for a team with an unsettled QB situation in the hopes of playing than return to the Rams, mentor some guy through another losing season and spend the remainder of my career sitting on my ass.

    His injury is unfortunate- as any injury is- but with him it is especially so in light of the pounding he's taken over the last few seasons. He deserved a better fate.

    NJ, I figured he'd be the starter for another year while the QB of the future gets groomed and mentored.

    Yeah, Varg, I wasn't really directing that comment to you specifically- there have been a few to suggest Bulger should be brought back next year and take a back seat to the guy we draft, which I just don't see happening. If he comes back, it's with the understanding he'd be starting- otherwise I'm sure he'd examine other options.

    We all know Bulger, if he can go, you can bet he will have a uniform on and ready to run out on the field.

    I do agree with your sentiments about letting him rest, but if he can go, he will go.

    He shouldn't play, period. He's finished.

    Way too early to think about this in my mind. Let the guy heal up and let the medical experts figure out when he could play before spending any time worrying about it. We only have 6 weeks left of this season.

    RI, I understand wanting to play & being the warrior when half the dome is calling you out, but sometimes you have to protect the player from himself.
    I say he sits for the balance of the season.
