Tell you what, I feel sorry for my buddy Marc. For the most part he's had to cope and deal with some weak support around his Rams offense teams, getting smacked in the process of building / rebuilding. ...I didn't see the game today at D.C. and I just got here to read all about it but it seems it was another l o n g day for MB.
I have always tried to be objective regarding Marc Bulger- not always an easy task for any fan when discussing the team's quarterback. And I've generally been a supporter over the years. But I seriously think some of you are delusional.
Marc Bulger is hardly the main reason the Rams lost today. But this idea that the Rams line was horrific today and that Bulger put up great numbers is laughable. The Redskins had 1 SACK today. Bulger was 15-28 for 123 yards. We scored 7 points- one week after being shut out. Our offensive line- while certainly below par on many occasions- is not giving up 10 sacks a game and playing terribly on every play. They opened enough holes to help Steven Jackson run for over 100 yards. Marc Bulger has got to start putting up 220-250 yard passing games occasionally and making something happen offensively.
There are certainly other issues offensively. Avery has been invisible and played a huge part in the loss today. No one else on the receiver corps is a proven player. Both directly affect Bulger's ability to be effective. But let's stop the "It's not Bulger's fault" fairytales. He's as much to blame as anyone else on the offense, and as the quarterback, he's gonna' take the brunt of the criticism- fairly or unfairly-. It comes with the territory.
I'm still glad they did.Last I looked he did not fumble Avery did. Still he is not the problem.Quote:
YES!! This is so what I wanted to hear!!
The Rams with the first pick of the NFL draft select..................A QB.
The fact that Randy dropped a TD does not help.
Hit often and had guys in his face.Quote:

So we draft a QB 3 years later as well. And continue to thrash about in futile oblivion.
