  • Bulger or Boller?

    Who's starting today. I sure as heck hope Bulger is ready cause we saw the best out of Boller we can possibly see, with the Ravens and with us. If it hasnt gotten better yet then it wont get any better at all. We've seen the best out of Bulger and i'm counting on it happening again but we'll never know until he's in there learning how to play with this line. Last thing we need is to send Bulger packing for another team and he does a Kurt Warner.

    Boller is starting, Bulger is the backup but is still not fully healthy

      Boller is very up and down..totally inconsistent..but he can make plays..SOMETIMES

      just like all QB`s whove been in the league for 5 plus years..

      we have no choice but to hope one of his up days is today..

        who cares. Nothing is going to happen positive for the rams until they continue rebuilding. Quarterback hopefully will be adressed in 2010 draft.

              My biggest complaint about Boller is that he never throws the ball down field. Other than that he's been a pretty solid job.

                i dunno, that play where he threw the ball against the back of his own head and Allen scooped it up for a TD was just plain nasty

                Good to see a still not fully fit Bulger throw a TD to Avery

                  the previous poster had posted that pre-game Tomahawk..

                  apart from that tho..Boller i thought did OK... Bulger`s cameo was nice tho..7/7 and a TD...i know in so-called garbage time..but still..shows he`s healed and should be ready to start next week.

                    still, i remember getting criticised because i said that Boller wasnt necessary better than Bulger because he turned the ball over more often, and the other guy said that turnovers didnt matter because Boller scored points.

                    i think seeing two games in a row in which a Boller turnover has led directly to a TD is enough for me. I know the Niners and Vikes are good defenses, but in a bad team you cant just give the other team points so easily, especially when we struggle to score like we do

                      I don't think it matters, they both suck and we won't be competitive until we get a Franchise quarterback, and it doesn't have to be in the 1st round.

                        I think it's fair enough to see that a hobbled Bulger is better than a healthy Boller....

                          After todays performance against the Vikings--will this question ever be asked? Of course the nature of this post isnt who should be the Ram's QB, but who is playing QB.

                          I just hope that there will be no posts as to who SHOULD be the Ram's QB

                            At this point it seems like a coinflip will work pretty well for that decision.

                              I think they both have their merits that are worth consideration...if they have great O-line play then Bulger is the man..but Boller can make things happen more if the O-line dictates that the QB needs to buy some time himself. that fumble was ugly..but i wouldnt bet against Bulger being capable of those kind of things and i think he would have got sacked more than Boller did today on some of the plays,had he been in there at the time.
                              maybe that crazy idea Landry had of rotating QB`s with Morten & Staubach could work with Boller & Bulger...
                              either way i think we gonna be drafting our future QB in April..and rightly so...
                              as for next week id say Bulger should play..it was "garbage" time but 7/7 and a TD..isnt bad under any circumstances and shows that his shoulder is better now...plus the Jags D pass rush dont like much to me..so Bulger should have time to throw.

                                Earlier this year, the rams were on a drive to tie the game, Bulger scambled for 6 yards on 3rd down. They needed 7. The fans on here, the media, everyone threw Bulger under the bus, said he was slow, and he shoulda took the hit for the drive. Kyle boller, who's a better athlete, scrambled for 13 yards, we need 15. I want to hear fans rag on him like they did Bulger. But because savard, and farr, haven't said anything about it, I'm guessing all is forgiven.
                                This brings me my point, it isn't Bulgers performance that gets ppl, its him. Fans just don't like him.

                                Man if that was Bulger throwing those int's he would be getting ripped to shreds right now. Can Null possibly be that much worse than Boller at this point? Boller is the same guy he has always been. Inaccurate,inconsistant, but can scramble. Well Bulger haters wanted a qb who can scramble how is that working out for us? We only lost by 10 points to a terrible team. Boller throws a pic when he has a wr wide open and he under throws him. I thought boller was the strong armed qb? Sorry to say put Bulger in that same situation and that's a td not an int. Bulger is so much more accurate than Boller it's obvious.

                                I just find it funny no matter who is behind center the results are pretty much the same. This tells me the Rams woes are not solely on the qb. We managed to make Justing Forsett look like Barry Sanders. Our o-line is once again so banged up Boller was being hit before he could even set up in the pocket. Those sacks are his fault though he should be able to get out of the way of those big lineman (sarcasm off). Boller has heart, not any more or less than Bulger but he has less talent then Bulger.

                                I say throw Null in at qb if we can't beat Seattle with Boller there isnt a game left on the schedule that is winable. So why not give the kid a shot? I dont care if Boller gives us the best chance to win he has no future as a starting qb in this league. Null on the other hand can at least show us what he can or cant do. Starting Boller anymore is a complete waste of the fans time. Boller has not changed one bit since his days in Baltimore, and will not lead this team to victory. So that being said lets start Null PLEASE!

                                Rams backup quarterback Kyle Boller actually brought some energy and verve to a dead offense Sunday, performing assorted stunts and making a bunch of plays to shove the Rams in place for two touchdowns and a field goal to cut Green Bay's imposing lead to 23-17 in the third quarter.

                                Boller would cool down, of course.

                                He is Kyle Boller, after all.

                                Indeed, Boller faded down the stretch, and the Rams defense suffered serious burns, and at the end of the day we saw the same old sorry scoreboard: Packers 36, Rams 17.

                                Still, unless you're a hotshot prospect signed out of the Dominican Republic by the baseball Cardinals, you could see that Boller kick-started the Rams offense.

                                It was impressive while it lasted. Unfortunately for the Rams, it lasted only about a quarter and a half. During this stretch Boller completed nine of 14 passes for 100 yards and two touchdowns, scrambled twice for first downs to keep drives alive and got out in front of a running play to throw an aggressive block for Steven Jackson to fire up his teammates.

                                And just like that, the Rams flurried for 17 points after scoring only seven in the season's first nine quarters under regular starter Marc Bulger.

                                "Once he was out there, the team was moving the football," Rams coach Steve Spagnuolo said. "In the end there, when the defense knows what you have to do, it makes it tough on any quarterback. But my gut feeling right now is that he managed the game and had the guys headed in the right direction."

                                Poor Bulger had to leave with a shoulder injury, and his status for Sunday's game at San Francisco is uncertain. But even if Bulger is healthy, Boller should start. That's obvious. At least he made some plays. At least he performed CPR on this offense. And if nothing else, Boller's mobility is a plus.

                                But the Bulger apologists are already on the attack, immediately dissing Boller as they dutifully stand by their man. Of course, these are the same people who insisted that no QB could function in this Rams offense because the offensive line and receivers are a detriment. MORE BERNIE

                                The QB has no chance, we were told. OK, so why was Boller able to move the offense, finish drives with a punch and put points on the board?

                                I can't believe I'm getting worked up about this.

                                And that's Rams football for you.

                                The franchise has the longest losing streak in the NFL, 13 games. The Rams are 5-30 over the last 35.

                                And we're arguing over whether Boller or Bulger...

                                St. Louis Rams' Marc Bulger is out, Kyle Boller steps in

                                BY JIM THOMAS
                                ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH
                                08/18/2009

                                Life as a backup quarterback means you're always one play away from the spotlight. For Kyle Boller, that play took place Monday at Rams Park.

                                With the Rams working indoors because of rain, a center snap from Jason Brown doinked off the hands of quarterback Marc Bulger midway through practice. X-rays subsequently showed that Bulger had suffered a fractured pinky finger on his throwing hand. The two-time Pro Bowler will be sidelined at least two weeks.

                                "It kind of not really popped but I could tell he was hurting a little bit," Boller said. "He kind of stuck in there and went for a couple more (plays)."

                                But then Bulger headed off the practice field, and the next thing Boller knew, coach Steve Spagnuolo was in his ear.

                                "He said, 'You've got to go in right now,'" Boller said.

                                Boller took the rest of the practice reps with the starters in the morning, and took the full load with the first team in the afternoon.

                                During a situational goal-line period in the morning, Spagnuolo said Boller "pretty much did all the right things." And in the 7-on-7 passing period, "he stuck out," the coach said.

                                Nervous?

                                "Nah. You can't be nervous," Boller said. "That's part of the deal of being a backup. You've got to just be prepared to jump in there no matter the situation.

                                "It's not my first rodeo. I've been a starter. I've been out there. So I'm just going to go out there and be myself. Be a leader, and lead this team to hopefully a lot of scoring drives."

                                The No. 19 overall pick by Baltimore in 2003, Boller appeared in 53 games with 42 starts for the Ravens. He's that franchise's career leader in passing yards (7,846) but threw 44 interceptions to go with his 46 touchdown passes.

                                Last year in the Ravens' second exhibition game, a season-ending shoulder injury to Boller opened the door for rookie Joe Flacco at quarterback. Flacco nearly got the Ravens into the Super Bowl; Boller became expendable as an unrestricted free agent.

                                He signed a one-year, $1.5 million deal with St. Louis, but only after the Rams got tired of waiting on Gus Frerotte. So Boller, 28, will start Friday against Atlanta, as well as the Rams' Aug. 27 contest at Cincinnati. But that should be it, unless Bulger's injury takes longer to heal than expected.

                                "There's what I'm going to call a small fracture in the pinky finger," Spagnuolo said. "It's not displaced, which is a good thing. ... You can't cast it. You don't do anything to it. He'll just tape it. We'll keep it immobilized for a couple of weeks, and we'll see where we are after that. He won't do very much for two...
