    Something I saw last night...

    REALLY bothers me.

    In the 4th quarter, the camera cut to a close-up of Marc Bulger. All I saw were the eyes. To me, they said a lot.

    He wanted that game. He wanted to make a comeback in the fourth. He looked like he wanted to use Hester as a club to beat down the rest of the Bears.

    And it looked like he was frustrated....not with himself, as he has so often in the past after a mistake. No, this was frustration from elsewhere. And it was intense.

    That look told me that Linehan better get off his butt and change things, and soon. I have a feeling, a very, very bad feeling, that Marc is going to give Linehan an ultimatum: Either things change, and quick....or that contract won't be signed.

    I really hope I am wrong about this.

    I agree, I think this guy is gonna be more and more frustrated the longer we sit and wait to re-sign him. He's gonna start thinking about new teams eventually, so I'd say sign him quick!

    I don't know Sam, Bulger made it pretty clear that his frustrations come from the lack of effort on the field and that Linehan has done everything he can to correct the problem. There was also a report by the MNF crew from an interview with Bulger that he is much more comfortable and at ease with the way Linehan runs things as opposed to Martz.

    I know people want to scoff and say Bulger isn't really telling the truth, but I have to take the man at his word until I actually hear him say he's got a problem with Linehan.

    i agree and also disagree with some of your opinions,i think Bulger would love to stay here if we put the right people around him,but if he doesnt see improvement he might consider leaving to extend his career because he is taking a hugh beating right now.

    I also noticed that Barron looked right at Bulger after committing the false start.:x

    the mnf bozos also mentioned something about marshall on the bulger call out,forget exactly what they said but it was to the effect that IF marshall was there he would have said something to the guys(that dont care) if marshall is still a ram and being $$ for this season why is he NOT with this team? seems they sure could use some leadership.even if he is just on the sideline cheering em on(coaching em up)

    I admit that i had my doubts about Bulger (holding my breath every time he let the ball go) even when he was making the pro bowl. now i see no reason he shouldnt get the big contract from the rams. he has shown his leadership week in and week out and i have gained more respect for him as the season has gone on. i would hate to see him playing for another team, as it would be another notch in the personnel screwup belt of the ram front office. (see London Fletcher, Ryan Pickett, Dre' Bly, Ernie Conwell)

    If we loose Bulger, The team will fall into the abyss for a long, long time. Get this guy some blockers that can give him time and not create dumb penalties. Did you see the accuracy last night? Alot of those deep balls were dropped, and short ones too!! All when he had extra time. The media, The coaches, and the playmakers all supported him when he finally went public with the problems, and nobody criticized him for what he said. He has the team behing him and that says alot about his "quiet" leadership.

    Very well said, I too think that's the situation right now.

    It's an interesting (if scary) thought that Bulger may not even want to sign an extension. I've never even thought about that until now. But I can see why, if you look at it from his perspective, if certain players just don't care and nothing is done by the coaches/FO to set those guys straight or get rid of them - then that's not really an attractive organisation to play for. I'm sure lots of teams are ready to sign Bulger to a longterm contract right away if we don't get it done, if we lose Bulger because of inaction from the higher-ups heads should roll. Let's hope it never gets that far.

    Sam, I saw that look too and had similar thoughts. As his frustration grows so might his desire to go elsewhere. I would hate for that to happen.

    But who is out there to make a serious run at signing Bulger? Oakland? Cleveland? Detroit? Those teams are in just as bad a shape as ours so I can't see him leaving for them. I guess maybe Carolina would want him, but I just don't see him leaving. He seems comfortable in the STL.

    I TOTALLY AGREE WITH YOU MAN... YOU CAN SEE BULGER SIGN WITH HIS BOY MARTZ SOMEWHERE DOWN THE ROAD
