    Team all beat to ....

    ST. LOUIS (AP)—St. Louis Rams quarterback Marc Bulger(notes) underwent an MRI exam on his groin and hamstring Monday and was due for a second MRI on a swollen knee in addition to testing for concussion-related symptoms after a physically demanding loss to the Arizona Cardinals.

    Coach Steve Spagnuolo said the first MRI revealed a strain. The second MRI was set for late Monday and Bulger will be tested for a possible concussion Tuesday after taking a blow to the head in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s 21-13 loss.
    Spagnuolo wasn’t certain of Bulger’s status for next week’s game against the Seattle Seahawks. He said the injuries apparently occurred at various points in the game, and said Bulger woke up with the swollen knee.
    “Marc Bulger’s pretty banged up,” the coach said. “Marc’s got a few things going on.”
    Linebacker Chris Chamberlain(notes) and offensive tackle Jason Smith(notes) also will be tested for possible concussions on Tuesday.
    Fullback Mike Karney(notes) was to undergo an MRI on his neck. Offensive tackle Alex Barron(notes) (mild ankle sprain) and running back Steven Jackson (lower back strain) had more minor injuries.
    Spagnuolo was hopeful guard Richie Incognito(notes) can return after missing three games plus the bye week with a foot injury.


    Looks like all the Bulger bashers will get their chance to see another QB get beat up, or blown out, next week.


    I was actually very disappointed in the game this Sunday. I thought we got out coached, and out maneuvered at a lot of instances. The Cards did an excellent job of scouting us, and it seemed like for most of the game the Cards had a copy of our playbook and a mike on our play callers. The last 3 plays trying to get into the end zone in the next to last drive was insane. 3 straight passing plays, 2 of which were the same play to the same side against the best corner the Cards have. No attempt to run at all or play action to SJ.



    The O-line really underperformed after having shown so much improvement through the season. The Cards were getting pressure on us with only 3 and 4 man rushes.



    The receivers were constantly running the wrong routes, or giving up on their routes too early. Nearly half of Bulger's incomplete passes seemed to be from receivers not being where they were supposed to be.


    The D-line was getting no consistent pressure on Warner, or Lienart. Yes we knocked Warner out of the game, but that seemed more like a fluke. Not the hit, the injury. But we were not getting to either QB enough. And our run defense packed up and left the building, if it actually ever arrived with the team.




    A team loss no matter what anyone says, and who they like to point fingers at.

    I feel bad for Bulger, I really do. Had he not been beaten like a defenseless little boy for all of these years I would make a bet that we'd have a much better record right now.

    Washed up is harsh and it's not the word I'm looking for... He's just too beaten up it seems.


    Always and Forever a fan of the St. Louis Rams
