Thread: QB problem anyone ?
Re: QB problem anyone ?
Unfortunately for Bulger, many members of this team appear to be unmotivatable. I think you could shoot one of them (to emphasize that you mean business) point a gun at another, and that one still would not be motivated to excel. Needless to say, breaking a tackle won't motivate those jokers either.
smizzhfx. Bly is overrated.

Re: QB problem anyone ?
Funny last year people were saying Jackson needed to be replaced and everybody wanted Mcfadden. How did that turn out for the Raiders? Last time I checked I dont think Mcfadden was the next Peterson. Now everyone wants to ditch Bulger and draft a rookie. Sure lets draft one in rounds two, or three. Hey we gave up on Kurt Warner too for the same reasons most of you are ready to give up on Bulger now. How is Kurt making out???Aim high Willis, Aim High!
Re: QB problem anyone ?
New to this forum, but since this is a topic that I have an opinion in, I figured it would be a good time to jump in. I am persuadable and see both sides to most things. In this case, Rammiser;

your opinion is led to believe you feel that Jackson and Bulger are the offensive tandem of the Rams future. I never heard anyone praise McFadden as a potential Ram, but if that was the case, is it even fair to judge McFadden vs Peterson? Look at the difference in where each went. Peterson went into an established Minnesota team that needs only a passing game to make it all the way, whereas McFadden went into the horrid (but better than St.Louis Rams) Oakland Raiders. Where the quarterback of the future keeps getting set back by either injury or injustice by the owner. As for Bulger, I do not believe Tebow could teach bulger anything. Bulger doesn't weigh (whatever it is Tebow weighs) and isn't structured the same. It would be a joke to see him try to run the ball even 10% of the ammount Tebow did in college. (For the record, Tebow, in my opinion, will end up being converted to a different position, or won't find much of his potential in the NFL. TE sounds like a good fit. Could play as a go to checkdown like Gonzalez, but with size.) Bulger is a good passer, and under a good coach, with a good offensive line, that's all you need. Problem is, the Rams don't have that offensive line. The other thing you have to take in to effect is the NFL and Fads / Trends. Did you see what happened when the Dolphins brought out that annoying wildcat formation this year? Everyone seemingly HAD to add some wildcat plays to their playbook. I believe a similar trend is going to be starting in regards to teams that are failing. (See equation immediately below for details)
To solve a problem, sometimes it is good to find an example from history, and review the resolution found in the past. So in this case, we'll take...the Falcons, Ravens, Miami, etc. All teams that were failing for repeated seasons switched up the personnel, brought in a new QB, and suddenly, instant changes occured. Is this entirely because of that one change, doubtful, but no one really pays attention to that fact. Thus, we can now use our problem and identify how to solve it.
Not good season = Bad team. Bad team + multiple seasons = Horrible team
If horrible team + New QB = New attitude, and New attitude + New season = good year. So the new fad would be based on the belief that;
good season:good team::bad season:bad team, than a New QB = Good team.
Something to watch.
Jackson has been hurt, when he plays, he averages stats equal to the top 5 RBs in the league. This is with the fact that he is playing behind a pathetic O-line, and no passing game to keep the defense honest. Fix the O-line, and I believe you could cure the team. Bulger is overpaid, and not a franchise QB like some hoped he would become, but he is still a talented QB, and could take you to the Superbowl is given enough to work with. The Rams defense gets a lot blame, but realize that they are on the field 80% of the game because the offense can't produce first downs. It's not fair to blame them for making some mistakes after being completely worn down from not getting off the field. The offensive line needs cured. I was hoping we would have picked up Jake Long in the draft of 2008, so maybe they'll get it right this time around. I agree with the fact that Pace is washed up, and cannot remain consistantly in the starting lineup, and so therefor, a new line needs to be formed.
