    Rams report card

    ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH
    01/01/2007

    Quarterback

    Bulger finishes career year in style with a 100.4 passer rating and a franchise record for lowest percentage of passes intercepted.

    Grade B+


    Running backs




    Jackson made his point 142 yards worth against the league's top-rated run defense, and added a career-high 4 TDs.

    Grade A+


    Wide receivers

    There were some early drops, but Holt, Bruce, Curtis and Aaron Walker all got their licks in vs. suspect Vikings secondary.

    Grade B


    Offensive line



    Although hurried and hit a few times, Bulger wasn't sacked once. Interior of the line got the job done against Williams & Williams.

    Grade A


    Special teams

    Turk and Wilkins finish impressive years in style; KO coverage unit sprang some leaks, including 65-yard return that set up TD.

    Grade B-

    Defensive line

    Perhaps its best job of the season against the run, although QB Tarvaris Jackson had some scrambles.

    Grade B+

    Linebackers

    Witherspoon had a sack and 2 hurries; Coakley continued good late-season play despite pass-interference flag.

    Grade B

    Secondary

    Bartell was the man Sunday, with 2 INTs, including one returned for a TD; only one pass play (a screen) went for more than 20 yards.

    Grade A

    Coaching

    Linehan deserves credit for keeping team up and focused despite being eliminated from playoff contention when Giants won.

    Re: Rams report card

    jk is correct as usual. the B plus grade makes no sense. The only think that kept the stats from being even better were three or four drops that hit the receivers directly in the hands. Bulger can only throw it, he cant catch it also. He controlled the game perfectly and made no mistakes. He got rid of the ball and threw it away when nothing was available. Just goes to show you the kind of standards someone is holding bulger to. A professional writer should know that grades are NOT all about stats.

    ramming speed to all

    Re: Rams report card

    Agree pretty much with most of it, but....

    Quarterback

    Bulger finishes career year in style with a 100.4 passer rating and a franchise record for lowest percentage of passes intercepted.

    Grade B+

    ...WHA?????

    Let's see, 100.4 passer rating, lowest record % of passes INT'd, and he gave Marc a B+???? Marc was solid all year, and played his butt off each and every time he stepped on the field. I give him a solid "A".
