    Great read from Sando, who apparently WATCHES the games before he comments ....

    Advancing the Conversation on Ram's Bulger
    September 23, 2009 3:46 PM

    Posted by ESPN.com's Mike Sando

    What has Marc Bulger shown so far? Stltoday.com asked the question and it's a good one. Bulger

    I think Bulger has ranked among the least of the Rams' worries through two games. He is not the problem, in my view, but is he part of the solution? I think he could be.

    Bulger has appeared more demonstrative and competitive through his actions and body language this season. He occasionally showed an edge in the past. I've seen it more consistently through two games and that's something I've felt was lacking at times in the past. The Rams' failures and the pounding Bulger took seemed to beat him down some.

    The Rams are not good enough at receiver right now and Bulger is again taking too much punishment. But I admired the way he stood tough against the rush at Washington and made throws even when punishment was imminent. He scrambled and absorbed big hits without leaving the game. The way he backed up his promise to return quickly from a broken right pinky finger was another positive sign. He hasn't used the injury as an excuse. Those were the areas I thought Bulger needed to establish himself and he is doing that.

    It's easy to point to the Rams' record in recent seasons as evidence against Bulger even though no one would hold that evidence against, say, Steven Jackson. While the quarterback does deserve more of the credit and blame in most cases, the Rams have been a mess. I think the organization has dragged down Bulger far more than Bulger has dragged down the organization. Give him more help and watch his strengths, notably accuracy, rise to the surface.

    wait,so he..uh...he actually WATCHED the game, THEN commented on it? Why would he do that? Everyone knows all you need is the box score to know exactly what's been going on

    Thanks for posting RamsInfiniti

    I have made a habit of actually going to ESPN's website recently (yea, I know, shoot me), simply to read Sando's NFC West blogs. He is a very level headed reporter, seems to enjoy covering the NFC west, takes an interest in all the games, and writes very unbiased opinions about what he sees.

    Go check him out, usually a good read. Send him a comment, let him know he's doing a good job if you think so. He seems like the type that would use it as motivation to be an even better reporter. Not only do we need to Rams to get more respect, but the whole division needs to be noticed. It's much better than people give it credit for ...
