  • Bulger pic

    Some have argued that Bulger needs to bulk up a little to be more effective as a qb. Here is a pic from day one of training camp and I'm wondering if he looks bigger, smaller or the same to everyone. I think he's still a little thin but that's better than being a Scott Mitchell, or Ryan Leaf fatty.

      If any QB got hit more than Bulger last year and still made the playoffs I'd like to know. The kid has toughness that dosen't really show from his body style.

        Agreed, Tex. It'd be nice to see him add some bulk, but if he can remain as tough as he was last season at his current size, I don't see it as a necessity.

          Well Tiger Woods had no problem hitting the long ball, I can see why MB receives skeptical comments concerning his abilitiy with the deep throws. His biceps are barely bigger than my wrists. :tongue:

            Well let's hope Bulger doesn't get the wraith Warner got. If he gets hit that many times.........Bulger will fold long before that!

              He looks the same to me mok.


              I really don't see the reasoning behind adding bulk. A QB needs a certain toughness in the pocket with this offense. Having said that, no QB in the league can withstand a beating or certain types of hits. If they hit you wrong or whatever then you can get injured no matter how much bulk you have.

                I agree that bulk does not equal toughness, but I don't know that toughness was necessarily the reasoning behind adding some mass.

                I am worried that Bulger hasn't played a full season completely healthy. It's a very ominous question mark in my mind. He basically made it through a full season last year but was injured in limited duty in 2002. Which will be the real Marc Bulger? I think he has battled injuries in high school and college as well so it seems like a legitimate concern.

                  In a sport that relies so heavily on physicality, I like to see proof that players are adding strength and tone to their shape. Suggests to me that they working on part of their craft in their spare time. I don't see that in MB. Maybe he will be football's Mr. Natural. One can hope.

                      In my opinion, the injury in 2002 was a significant hit that probably would have injured most QBs. The fact that he made it through 16 games last year with only some bruising on his arm despite being one of the most sacked quarterbacks in the game should speak for his durability.

                        Perhaps...but you can only take so many seasons as the NFL's most sacked QB before it starts taking its toll.

                          Well mok, what is the reasoning behind adding bulk? I'm not sure I am grasping this. Bones can break and tendons will tear regardless of the mass surrounding them. The injury to Bulger in '02 resulted from a vicious hit that likely would have injured most QBs if not all. He was damn near folded in half on that play. It's all related to the type of hit.

                          I do feel that Martz' offensive scheme needs to protect whoever is at QB. Perceived durability aside, if the hits and/or sacks keep coming, eventually there will be an injury. Bottom line, the NFL is a tough league for QBs. Defenses are designed with one goal in mind: Get to the QB and punish him.

                            That's exactly why we need to be sure we can adequately protect our QB and not hang him out to dry like Martz did Warner so many times. Bulger bulking up and becoming the David Boston of quarterbacks doesn't sound like that good of an answer. Instead we should make sure he's better at reading defenses and getting the ball out on time, and also increase the pass protection skills of our line, tight end, and backfield.

                              Farve hasnt missed a game since vince lombardi left the packers and he doesnt look that big to me. On the other hand, he is one of the toughest guys ever to play the game.

                              Bulger will be fine assuming he doesnt get unlucky and take a shot in an awkward body position or other vulnerable body part.

                              I dont think sacks are really the issue, how often you get hit and how badly is really what counts. The better our running game is, the more pressure off bulger, the better the likelihood of avoiding a bad injury.

                                In a recent Sit down with Rams Quarterback marc bulger, He Told Me that He no longer wanted to be perceived as a Qb who was Fragile, Bulger Said that he was making the move to Middle Linebacker and Will Was Going to move to the Strong Side. Many Photos Of bulger were taken, but only one was allowed to be put in my article, You See here At Phat's Sports Pictures you get the Exclusive Photos That No man has ever seen. Yes I know that you want to see marcs new look, well the time has come to see what marc looks like after his intensive workouts.

                                Bulger Bashers!
                                by GroundDog39
                                Ive got to admit, my patience is beggining to wear a bit thin but come on, like it or not, he is our starting QB. How many other QB's in his position would have flourished = NONE, ZIP, NADA.
                                KURT WARNER, CARSON PALMER, DAVID CARR, all were abysmal. Similar scenario's.
                                So if you want to vent any anger out from now till opening day, aim it where its more deserved - The defensive players, it seems to me like Bulger become a scapegoat for a lot of the pathetic football played.
                                If we do lose Bulger anytime soon, I think a lot of people could be in for a rude awakening!
                                HE IS IN THE TOP TIER OF NFL qb'S, ONE DAY PEOPLE WILL COME TO REALIZE THIS.


                                P.S I just wish he could make play's with his feet, that would have solved everything?

                                I dont have a lot to say, but what I do have to say is this.

                                Matt Ryan! A rook looks 10 times better than Bulger.

                                Flaco! A rook looks 10 times better than Bulger.

                                I like Bulger in the fact that I would like to hang out and drink a beer, but

                                as a QB in the NFL for OUR Rams, I got to say I cant stand him.

                                My eyes have now been on the passing game. Bulger is rarely looking downfield, even though sometimes he has people open down there. Also, he's not looking at all of his reads consistantly, he looks nervous and entirely uncertain of his offensive line.

                                I think for now at least, he's damaged.

                                I like Bulger, but it might be something to consider bringing Green into this game and seeing if he's able to put something together.
