  • Marc Bulger maturing as QB

    Four games... here are the stats:

    139 attempts, 96 completions, 1,201 yards, 4 TDs, 2 INTs. Passer rating 99.2.

    Marc is playing in control, he's avoiding the big mistakes for the most part, and he's looking like a leader.

    The Rams have a good young QB in Bulger.

    Avenger, I totally agree. MB is looking good, solid. I'm glad we have No. 10 as our QB. :helmet:

    Fine performance Vs. Frisco tonight.

      He's been one of few bright spots in the first 3 games of the season. He continued to look good in tonight's game. He is looking a lot more mature out there. Way to go 10! Keep it up against the Squawks.

        Glad to see Bulger looking sharp out there. Hopefully it carries over to the Seahawks game, which will be our biggest test of the season.

        I think he only has 1101 yards through the air on the season though, not 1201.

          I hate to blow up your celebration.....but Bulger faced zero pressure tonight from a bad ***** front 4 and faced no blitzing.....

          When he sees pressure (See the Atlanta game, and the Lions game in 03) he throws it up and makes bad decisions.....

          Oh, and I believe that the Hawk's #1 rated scoring D (see the stats) knows this and will bring it to Marc.....

            Bulger had a 102.2 passer rating against Atlanta.

            Maybe you should do your homework and then comment. Otherwise, you just look silly.

              He didn't look all that good in the end zone after tunring it over for a score....I don't mind happens to everyone, LOL

                He was blindsided on that play because Pace allowed the DE to get close enough to reach out and hit the ball.

                Appparently, the only people who think that was Bulger's fault are Seahawk fans and Uber-Warnerites.

                  Bulger was money. He showed he can move the ball around and had complete command of his game tonight. I know he gave the sea chickens something to think about.

                    Bulger is playing really well so far.I like the fact that he is spreading the ball around more and not zeroing in on Holt like he did last year.He is definitely maturing and continues to remain calm under pressure.

                      I can think of a couple more words for it. But they don't belong here.

                          Congrats to MB from a very well executed game. He might just make this team after all...

                            You are correct. My bad. His rating is 96.2.

                            Still, pretty darn good start if you ask me.

                              Some other stats that look pretty good.

                              2003: 63.2
                              2004: 69.1

                              Yards Per Attempt:

                              2003: 7.22
                              2004: 7.92

                              Interception %:

                              2003: 4.1

                                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.

                                With all the talk about Al Saunders and how his offensive prowess/playbook is going to affect our team in a positive way. Randy McMichael will have a bigger role in our offense? Steven Jackson will be the main character/go to guy? The rookies we drafted have us all excited? We seem to be leaving out one very important name?

                                MARC BULGER

                                Marc had his worst season as a RAM last year.

                                12 games played, sacked 37 times, QB rating of 70.3 and a his completion percentage dropped under 60% for the first time at 58.5%.

                                Stating the obvious, our o-line has to protect Bulger much, much better. Also Bulger needs to throw the ball away instead of taking so many sacks.

                                Past Stats:
                                2006-16 games, sacked 49 times, QB rating 92.9, comp% (62.9)
                                2005- 8 games, sacked 26 times, QB rating 94.4, comp% (66.9)
                                2004-14 games, sacked 41 times, QB rating 93.7, comp% (66.2)
                                2003-15 games, sacked 37 times, QB rating 81.4, comp% (63.2)
                                2002- 7 games, sacked 12 times, QB rating 101.5,comp% (64.5)

                                Also Trent Green could be huge in the scheme of things. Marc Bulger has only once played the full 16 regular season games.

                                Bulger has always been an average QB that couldn't carry a team to victory?

                                36-24 Record (.600 Pct) as starter ...

                                16 game winning 4th quarter drives - I guess he didn't play an active role in any of this ...

                                Just wondering what the opinion is from those that claim Bulger has "always sucked" or that he "cannot read defenses". Did he put up those number by luck?

                                by AtlantaRamFan
                                Not sure if this is interesting to anyone but me, but a friend of mine keeps calling Bulger a product of the system because he has had Torry Holt to throw to. It kinda got annoying so I looked up all the games between the 2004 and 2006 seasons in which Bulger and Holt have played together. There are 11 games in which Holt had 51 yards or fewer. These are Bulger's QB rating and yards for those 11 games:

                                Of the 11 games, he as a QB rating of 99 or higher in 6 of them, 3 games under 90.0 and his worst coming against MIA. It's my belief that Bulger is THE most unde QB, if not the most unde player.

                                This is my first time doing this, so if I messed something up, or any stats are wrong, let me know.

                                Can Bulger Overcome One Record To Set Another?
                                by r8rh8rmike

                                St. Louis Rams quarterback Marc Bulger wants to be remembered for something other than getting sacked.

                                Marc Buler will soon have his name in the record books. Given the divided feelings among Rams fans about Marc Bulger, that statement will evoke a variety of ideas as to just what that record(s) might be. Fortunately, it's a record that will remind everyone of what a solid QB Marc Bulger has been for the Rams, his struggles over the last two seasons aside. This season, barring an extended absence, Rams QB Marc Bulger will become the franchise's all-time leader in passing yards.

                                Name Games Yards Comp/Att Comp %
                                Jim Everett 107 23758 1847/3277 56.4
                                Roman Gabriel 130 22223 1705/3313 51.5
                                Marc Bulger 87 21345 1829/2924 62.6

                                Bulger needs just 2413 more passing yards to become the team's all-time leader in that department. Last season, not exactly a memorable one, Bulger passed for 2720 yards in 15 games. In 12 games the season before, he passed for 2392 yards. Hopefully, Bulger's name being etched into the team record book coincides with a season where he regains his mojo, making the record a sweeter memory. A seriously reworked offensive helps in that regard.

                                I included completion percentage because I think it underscores the point that Bulger didn't just fluke his way into the team's record book because of longevity. His accuracy is his best weapon, and, of course, if he were a bad QB longevity wouldn't be a factor anyway. Bulger has the second best completion percentage of any regular (i.e. not a backup) Rams QB. Only Kurt Warner tops him in that department with a 66.4% line.

                                All of this is especially impressive when you consider that Bulger DOES hold another, more dubious team record: sacks. Marc Bulger has been sacked 240 times in his 87 games. The next closest is Everett, who was sacked 186 times. (Still, nothing compares to Tony Banks getting sacked 132 times in just 44 games with the Rams). The Rams are counting on Bulger to overcome that record.
