  • Free Agent QBs.

    Aside from considering about drafting young QBs straight from college, what do you guys think about the FAs in 2010.

    Good choices include Chad Pennington, Kyle Orton, Jason Campbell, etc.

    IMO, I think Pennington would be the best choice for to get. Aside from the injuries he dealt with with the Jets and Dolphins. He's a west coast offense QB and I think he has potential to give us success if our O-line can be fired up and give the guy great protection.

      I'm probably alone in this but none of them seem any better of an option than just keeping Bulger on.

      We already have to pay for Bulger so we might as well keep him, draft a qb and let the new guy and Null develop.

        I was thinking the same thing.

          I agree that is the best course.

            I don't think Pennington brings much more to this team than Bulger does. Since Campbell wasn't the preferred choice for Jim Zorn's WCO in Washington, I wonder how effective he'd be in the Rams' WCO. And I don't think Orton leaves Denver.

            As others have said, we already have Bulger on the roster and we'll have to count at least a good portion of his contract whether we keep him or not. I'd be tempted just to keep him and groom someone under him. But if there is no cap in 2010, the Rams may see that as a good time to jettison Marc's contract with little if any cap implications and go with someone else.

              I like Pennington but he has a hard time staying on the field. I'd pass on Campbell he doesn't impress me at all. So to make a long story short I agree that keeping Bulger around seems like our best option while grooming his replacement.

              I also believe that SPAGS is going to surprise us all with alot more unpopular offseason moves. Will it be the QB position....???? Time will tell.

                If the Rams don't bring in real competition for Bulger, they're going to have a revolt from the fans in my honest opinion. For a team struggling to sell tickets and that is up for sale, I'd be surprised if they just stuck with him.

                That said, my preference is for them to bring in one of two types of people -- someone who might benefit from a change of scenery or a young guy who hasn't had much of an opportunity. Guys that might fit from the first category would be someone like David Carr (I thought we should've pursued him when he left Houston), who clearly had talent but no support. He's worth a flier in my book and is better than anyone on the roster. The second kind of guy would be someone like Kevin Kolb (though I don't like Kolb as a QB myself), though you'd have to give away a pick for someone like this.

                Two other things:

                1. Just say no to the Chad Penningtons of the world...we're a young team that is rebuilding, I see no reason to make a move inconsistent with that philosophy since we're more than just a QB away from being good.

                2. Just say not to the Jason Cambpells of the world...he's gotten an opportunity and has been surrounded by some good players. I'd say the problem is he isn't good enough to be a starter, especially at this stage of his career.

                  Chad Pennington is one injury away from having his arm torn off, and after watching Campbell get absolutely murdered by the Cowboys, I don't think he has the ability to survive our offensive woes. I echo the sentiments of chiguy regarding Campbell.

                    Rams' QB situation couldn't be any cloudier ..
                    by MauiRam

                    from Pro Football Weekly

                    It sure doesn't seem like the Rams' eventual starting quarterback in 2010 is currently on the roster.

                    That likelihood became greater courtesy of recent well-founded rumors that QB Marc Bulger could be seriously contemplating retirement after another rough season.

                    Bulger, this year's starter until suffering a season-ending fractured shin bone at the end of November, was already considered by many a long shot to return next season after shooting mostly blanks for the third season in a row.

                    "But as far as him still being the best quarterback on the team, it's not even close," said one insider of the 32-year-old Bulger, whose release or retirement would save the team a net $4.5 million under the salary cap next season.

                    After Bulger went down, primary backup Kyle Boller stumbled his way through two starts before passing the baton to sixth-round rookie Keith Null for the final four games.

                    "I'll be surprised if Boller is back," the insider said of the unrestricted free agent and former first-round draft pick of the Ravens who continued to be primarily done in by untimely turnovers.

                    "Maybe it could be Null. He certainly got some great experience. He has the size and arm strength, and he's very grounded with a good demeanor. But most of the time, he looked like you'd expect a sixth-round pick from a Division II school (West Texas A&M) to look totally overwhelmed."

                    The consensus is that while Null proved he could have a future at the pro level, he remains best suited at this stage of his development as a No. 3 quarterback.

                    As for who will enter the offseason filling the No. 1 QB role, it's anybody's guess at the moment.

                    If there was a franchise-caliber QB worthy of the Rams' first overall pick in the upcoming draft, he probably would be a no-brainer pick in late April.

                    But the consensus is that this year's QB crop is ordinary at best, which continues to make Nebraska DT Ndamukong Suh the Rams' most likely No. 1 pick.

                    "The best option could be to draft a QB that they like high in the second or third round and get a veteran 'bridge guy' to start next year," the insider said.

                    A "bridge guy" like Michael Vick, who had a history in Atlanta with Rams GM Billy Devaney?

                    We hear that's one name that figures to at least be discussed.

                    Gosh .. I wonder who that insider was .. any guesses??

                    whos gonna be the qb of the rams in 2010
                    by DieHardRamsFan1381
                    i hate to say this but its time for a change at the qb position. i mean marc was great for a couple years but after that he became a second rate player at best. we should have had a new qb after the 2008 season. bulger is at best now a decent back up. then you got are other 2 qb kyle boller and keith null 2 guys who have the skills of ryan leaf. the problem im at is who is out there for the rams to draft or pick up in free agency. i mean the first overall pick is gonna be suh no if ands or but. so maybe with the 2 round pick we could get someone out there im sure there will be some decent qbs left. id like to see them maybe pick up mccoy or tebow i mean tebows got all the skills he just needs to sit a season or 2 and pick up on everything just like aaron rodgers. but i dont think the rams have time to wait on a qb to develope. then theres free agency but theres really no starting qb out there the rams could pick up. someone tell me whos gonna be the qb in 2010?

                    Why should spagnoulo not go after a qb this offseason?
                    by Guest
                    Considering the below average play by bulger why shouldn't he go after a qb in draft or free agency. Do you really think bulger can take us to the promise land? Or is he a product of martz's offense? :|

                    Id very much like to pick up QB Jason Campbell in Free Agency
                    by tomahawk247
                    I think the guy can come in and do a solid job for us, and would be an immediate upgrade over what we have already. I always felt he was harshly treated in Washington. Ive certainly seen more from Campbell that i like compared to say Tarvaris Jackson, and Pennington doesnt have the arm and is injured too often to be a decent FA pickup.

                    Campbell has shown the ability to hit deep threats like Santana Moss and Antwan Randle-El, which is good for a WR like Donnie Avery.

                    My ideal offseason would involve picking up Campbell at QB, drafting Suh and then maybe picking up a QB in the middle to later rounds of the draft to develop behind Campbell.

                    That would lead to an improvement in both the passing offence and the defence.
