    Don't sound good--Martin signed

    I am hearing that we have brought back Martin for the rest of the year, who will be backing up Chandler. Still no word on Bulger's arm, but this sounds like they are preparing for the worst.

    It sounds as if they realize Chandler isn't the most durable QB in the league, and don't quite feel as if Smoker is ready to see time on the field. I wouldn't be too concerned with Bulger's long-term injury status just yet.

    Chandler to Start for Rams; Bulger Out for Week 14

    St. Louis Rams head coach Mike Martz said QB Marc Bulger (shoulder) has a bruised shoulder, which has him quite sore. There is also swelling in the joint. This is the same type of injury he suffered earlier this year before the team went on a Bye week. He will not be able to start during Week 14.

    Martz said QB Chris Chandler will start at quarterback in place of Bulger during Week 14.

    I don't think any of us were really anticipating him starting this weekend, so that's not surprising news. Hopefully Marc's back for Week 15 though.

    It's gonna be gut-check time for several on this team. Chris Chandler has to show that he can still lead a team to victory. The O-line has to realize there isn't another Chris Chandler waiting in the wings. If they screw up, it's 6th round rookie time. The Defense has to buckle down and make it happen. They had a good tune-up week, now they have to prove themselves.

    Please, anyone would be better than..."Vanilla Martin!" Surely, there's someone else out there. I'd rather see Vanilla back up Smoker! You could always pull Smoker in the event of a tragedy.

    Bulger getting hurt really sucks!The only positive I can see coming out of this is that Martz may become a little more run oriented and we will see some more of what the future holds for Steven Jackson.I really like what we are seeing from this kid so far.

    Jackson is now the focal point, hopefully Martz builds the game plan around him this week. Arizona is gonna be real hungry to prove they have gotten better.

    Bulger, seriously, get well soon. Work with Chris to bring him up to speed. Thanks.

    Chandler, do your thing -- please put your vast experience to good use.

    Martin, have we learned from our mistakes?

    Smoker, start warming up in the bullpen.
