  • The Difference?

    First of all I wanted to say that we played a heck of a game, that shouldve entertained all of the rams fans. I was watching the whole game on justin.tv and I hated how cocky the Aints fans were, even though they never dominated or really showed they were much better in THIS particular game. Anyway, its easy to see how we couldve won that game. No int in the endzone by Bulger, couldve given us at least a field goal and no return on the kickoff = Win for the rams lol.

    Dont get me wrong I think Bulger played a great game and I am not a Bulger basher.

    PS How about our new wide receiver?

      Haha lets not go quiet that far yet, but I have a feeling he might be starting opposite Avery, if Burton is out for the next couple of games.

        GG Rams, very impressive! When Bulger fights like that (he's had games where he was not as passionate) good things happen! Keep up the moral and keep on FIGHTING!!! GG... Rams... GG!

        I think more than a few of the games remaining this season will come down to the last 2 minutes, so we should skill-up a bit more on the 2-minute drill. Also, why are most less than 7 second plays drawn up as a JUMP BALL play? Why not have some one do an in or out around the 5-10 and put it on the person who catches it to fight for the yards? Lateral movement will expose the coverage and possibly make it better for the person who catches the ball. Just a thought...

          Ive asked myself that question as well and I cant find the answer. My guess would be that as a team needs a score the receivers naturally run deeper routes towards the endzone and they just bunch up in there lol

            As I watched the game...
            by ramsanddodgers
            I couldn't help but wonder how much better Bulger's stats could be if he could hit a receiver in stride more often.:\

            It seems his receivers are constantly reaching behind themselves or making shoe-string catches that cause the receivers to be slow or even immobile while the defense gets to close any gap and enabling a quick tackle. Maybe this is just poor perception or maybe they are just the throws which stick out in my mind.:O

            Before I get assaulted in print here ... YES, I do NOT want to trade Bulger, Yes Bulger has great stats (see above), Yes Bulger is in the upper echelon of QB's currently playing, I only which he were more dependable under duress.:wtf:

            RnD:bash:

            GO RAMS!!:l

            Bulger lost this game!
            by BEER
            Bulger does not suck, he just dont have what you need, to be a great QB.
            He has two good throws and then 13 bad, not good. For you Bulger fans
            I hope you have seen the light, if not, O well... For us fans that want a
            better QB we better hope it happens in the draft.

            Reasons Bulger should be gone next year.;)

            1. Cant let go of the ball.;)

            2. Cant read D.;)

            3. Very, very often cant throw the deep ball.;)

            4. And should be #1 he is no leader.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!;)

            Why this year is GUARANTEED to be better...
            by longfan
            by leaps and bounds...

            we have had a team that quit on their coach a year and a half ago..

            the quitters mostly got pink slips when we got a new coach..

            there is talent on this team and some guys that want to prove something.. not just lose and go home to the mailbox and get their check..

            our offense may be one of the best in the league this year (laugh if you must) and we will need that to keep our D off the field as much as possible..

            there is no reason we cannot win the ball control battle with the o'line and running game we SHOULD have..

            the only thing that could blow this deal sky high in my mind is if Bulger quits again, or falls down and hurts his little hand again..

            he is our leader, and he quit on us..

            if he comes to make ammends this year, the skies the limit in my mind... no significant injuries and i say we make the playoffs !!!!

            GO RAMS !!! I BELIEVE !!!

            Bulger feels the heat, from fans and foes

            Bulger feels the heat, from fans and foes

            It’s time for Marc Bulger to step up as quarterback of the Rams -– literally.

            He must step up in the pocket. He must get off his heels and fire up the passing game.

            He must move front and center for the offense and lead this unit back from the abyss. That is what the good quarterbacks do.

            And Bulger is overdue to regain that distinction.

            Last week against the Eagles, Bulger completed 14 of 26 passes for 158 yards and no touchdowns. He suffered four sacks and fumbled once, although he got the ball back. His passer rating was 72.3, which is down in the Tony Banks range.

            When the Eagles attacked the Rams with one blitz after another, they had no response. Bulger’s dump-off passes went nowhere.

            Save for one belated stretch of no-huddle play, the offense couldn’t find its rhythm. Bulger got in sync with tight end Randy McMichael, but top receiver Torry Holt remained a non-factor throughout the game.

            Much of that blame falls on the offensive line, which appeared utterly incapable of reading and reacting to the blitzes for which the Eagles are known. Running back Steven Jackson wasn’t much help against blitzing, either, since he STILL isn’t much of a blocker.

            “You know we did so many things wrong and I did so many things wrong,” Bulger told reporters during his weekly media grab at Rams Park. “We are not going to go back into last week that much because we are concentrating on the Giants now.”

            Great, but seriously, how could the offense be THAT bad? How could it have so much trouble with false-start penalties?

            How could it abandon the run?

            “When you get down early, you’re just trying to make something happen,” Bulger said. “I think it was seven or eight times we were in third-and-10 or more. Anyone in this league is not going to convert. You don’t want to go 0 for 11 or 0 for 8 on those situations, but our first and second downs are going to be way more important this week to prevent getting in those situations. We need third-and-4. We need third-and-3. We can’t be third-and-long because then you are one-dimensional, especially against a defense like Philly or the Giants, it’s not going to work.”

            When the Giants come after the Rams on Sunday -– and they will come after them, both in their base defense and with extra rushers -– Bulger’s response will dictate how this game plays out.

            He is expecting an onslaught.

            “They do a lot like Philadelphia,” Bulger said. “It’s a copy-cat league so I think they are going to imitate what happened in the last game that Philly did. Whether it was a blitz pick up or a coverage or getting balls in there, they...

            The twilight of Marc Bugler's career

            The twilight of Marc Bugler's career

            St. Louis Rams quarterback Marc Bulger has lost it.


            First, Marc Bulger was unable to make much happen against one of the league's worst pass defenses, even with time in the pocket. Few Rams watchers will forget memorable throws in the bottom of the strike zone against the Lions defensive line. Here's what FO said:

            If you take Marc Bulger's combined performance from 2007, 2008, and the first half of 2009, and then place it on a 16-game scale, his numbers aren't pretty: 266-of-465 for 2855 yards, 12 touchdowns, and 15 interceptions. They're a dead ringer for Jim Everett's 1996 season in New Orleans: 267-of-464, 2797 yards, 12 touchdowns, and 16 interceptions. Why is that relevant? Mainly because Everett would take 75 more snaps as a professional quarterback after that season. Bulger is just about done, and his inability to produce against an awful pass defense was just a sign that he's part of the problem in St. Louis, not the solution.

            Looking back, I don't think the Rams had much choice in keeping Bulger. The cap hit for releasing him would have been huge and left the Rams with lots of dead money. And, there was ample reason to think that with a better OL and a healthy Steven Jackson that Bulger would have been acceptable for a rebuilding team. I think the team and lots of fans underestimated just how talent-depleted our group of WRs were. Had Laurent Robinson not been injured, that might have been a different story, giving Bulger a reliable option and keeping Avery in the deep threat role he's built for.

            GM Billy Devaney and the coaching staff made the decision to focus their efforts on the offensive line, and I still think that was the right call, no matter how painful it is to watch Bulger play. I'm a big believer in the theory that teams build success from the lines up, and the Rams had big issues on the OL. Sure, Pace is having a decent season this year, but he couldn't be counted on for much beyond that given his age (look at Seattle's predicament with Walter Jones now). Getting an OL in place and a cornerstone lineman in Jason Smith sets the Rams up well for the 2010 season, when if they need to take a QB in the draft they can because they can put him behind an experienced line.

            And on the hero of the game, Steven Jackson, here's what FO said about him:

            Jackson had 17 carries on first down, and nine of them were successes, including three first downs and a 25-yard touchdown run that gave the Rams a lead they would not relinquish. He also converted a pair of third-and-1 attempts.

            The Rams had 21 first downs through the whole game and ran Jackson on 17 of them. If the Rams are going to win anymore games this season, they'll have to have a liberal dose of Steven Jackson.
