    Sorry HUbison, couldn't have said it better myself so I figured stealing it would serve the purpose for now ...

    Re: Warner wows his receivers

    We led the NFC in passing last year, Bulger was money on third down. Don't really think the QB was the problem last year. So we still don't have a problem at QB.

    Stopping the run on the other hand.....

    Was it ever a problem? If not, then why was Warner removed in the first place. If it was a problem, who caused it? If Warner caused it...problem solved. If not, the problem still exists and will probably resurface.

    Re: Warner wows his receivers

    It dosen't matter. The QB is not the issue anymore now that Bulger is at the helm.

    Let me phrase it more carefully, to me Warner is a non-issue. To me. You guys want to play X-Files with this go right ahead. Be my guest. I loved that show.

    A couple of years ago we would have said the same about Warner. Which makes me ask, have we solved the problem?

    WE DON'T HAVE A QB PROBLEM. We do have a stopping the run problem. The QB is the least of our worries.

    Come on, Tx. We're just asking questions. No harm in that, right?

    Alright, Tx, no need to yell. :redface: I agree, we need to stop the run better. I would even say that is our most important factor right now.

    And hopefully Smoker will be ready to go when this comes up again and Bulger gets run out of town.

    Re: Warner wows his receivers

    Bulger stunk when the chips were down - playoffs - 3 INTs (one when a winning FG was in sight) 53.9 passer rating in playoffs - the worst [http://www.nfl.com/stats/leaders/NFL/PRAT/2003/post]. Period. Playoffs. That is money time.

    KW is gone but the problem isn't.

    Re: Warner wows his receivers

    I don't think that's necessarily a problem. He'll learn. He'll be fine. Bulger is going to have a monster year this year.

    It's ok to hang onto KW though. He was a great QB for the Rams. I can see why some of you still cling to KW.

    If he hasn't learned by now, it's a problem. He's the starting quarterback for an NFC powerhouse so the coddling, hand holding and excuses are done. He has the talent, we'll see if he has the mental ability to have a monster year, 'cause that's what he'll need to pull it off.

    Marshal was on the Radio on the west coas today. He seemed to think Warner did not get a fair shot, Marshal wished him well and hope to see him do well this year. He did not lose all the team.

    It doesn't surprise me that Faulk feels that way.

    I may be a Warnerite...but I don't see how anyone can say with a straight face that Warner got a fair shot!

    I think I can say it with a straight face, for whatever that's worth.

    Re: Warner wows his receivers

    It's never a fair shake when it looks like from all veiws , that the bulk of the team layed down on him(especially in week one) because if the team didn't,Martz sure as hell did! Big Mistake PERIOD. I don't care what you say, Bulger can't run this offense to it's potential. But if the potential has dropped, well this team may just show it's mediocrity. It really sucks to be so good and then to see the turn! With a defense that is patch work ,you're going to need a high octane Offense and I sure as hell didn't see Bulger step up in any big way last season. Well the Ball is his now. Sink or swim.
    I stopped going to the dentist.......I got tired of the cavity searches!

    If we don't figure out how to stop the run, Johnny U could QB this team and we still wouldn't win.
