  • Breaking news!!!!!

    For all of you Bulger bashers out there, I wouldn't wanna be y'all right now!

    Sam just received a text with the results on Marc's MRI.....he has a freakin' broken tibia! He is to be out 3-6 weeks! He played through that, and all y'all can do is say he sucks. Looks to me he is tougher than a lot of people think. More info as it develops.

    The text message was from the Rams text alerts.

    Wait a minute- which bone is it/ You said Tibia- which is the larger of the two lower leg bones. If he broke this, he's done for the season. Someone on another thread said "fibia" (which is misspelled; it's actually "fibula") which is the smaller of the two bones. He'd have a shot at coming back by season's end if this one is broken.

    In any event, that's a real shame- I don't wish injury on any of our guys, and it's too bad Bulger won't be able to finish things out, especially with a winnable game Sunday.

      A portion of the release I posted in the other thread:

      The results of quarterback Marc Bulger's MRI on his knee came in early Monday evening and Bulger has been diagnosed with a broken tibia

            Sigh....I was hoping I wouldn't have to go here, but it looks like I will. Do you remember Ryan Leaf? Yeah, THAT Ryan Leaf. He was the one Null worked with to "prepare" him for the NFL while he was in college. Considering his sources, and the fact that he is just plain not ready, I'd say this is not the best idea in the world, if you plan to win a football game before 2012, when the world is rumored to be ending.....LOL

              Being tough is a good thing but it doesn't make a guy a great player.

              Someone please remind me what is that is done to a horse when a leg is broken?

                He started limping a bit before halftime. Now, with this mind, when you're in pain, it is distracting, no matter whether you are a starting NFL QB or a greeter at Wal-Mart. Now, could you, while distracted, throw a lighning fast ball and thread a needle to a receiver in double coverage? That takes just a smidge of talent.

                To answer your question, you shoot a horse with a broken leg, but I don't think that course of action would be appropriate in this case.

                  I've got to chme in about the Null thing here, my only question is this, if after an entire training camp, mini camps and 11 weeks into the regular season if this guy hasn't grasp some form of this offense enough to be able to practice with the 1st team and go out in a game and run the offense with some ability then why in the hell did we draft him in the first place? I know he won't be able to run it like Bulger does and I don't expect him to, but he should be able to hand the ball to Jax and throw some simple pass patterns, that appears to be all that Shurmur has in the playbook anyway. I'm not trying to stir the pot here but if Devaney thought enough of him to draft him and the coaching staff kept him then I say give him a shot no matter how ridiculous it may seem. We are 1-9 afterall.

                    Apt thread title!

                    I'd also go for Null: we have to see what he can do because, as has already been mentioned, it could mean not requiring a QB in round one next April. This team has so many needs that we must explore all avenues.

                      Well, he's out 3-6 weeks.

                      If he's out for the maximum amount of time and Boller can't do anything in 3 weeks, I'd give Null a shot.

                        lol nice one, I think I'm the only one who got this so far.

                        As for the Null thing goes, look sometimes you draft a back-up QB. He came from a small school, and had Ryan Leaf as a coach. He didn't set the world on fire against other back-ups in preseason, and as a 3rd stringer himself, he doesn't get alot of reps in practice. This means he has no feel for the speed of a real NFL game whatsoever. Keep in mind to that he barely beat out Brock Berlin, and I'm sure you all remember how he did. Keep him on the bench a couple more years and who knows, we might find out he's the next Tom Brady. Realistically though, he's most likely not. Its gonna be tough but we'll have to bite the bullet and rally around Boller!

                          I'd let Boller start against the Seahawks this week. If he still doesn't produce, we put Null in.

                            Mom, I don't understand why we need to consider what a joke as a pro QB Leaf was when considering Nulls ability. He's been in a Rams fold since training camp. Leaf hasn't been coaching him has he? Are they hang with each other?

                            I say, give the kid the rock and see what he does. There is no quicker way to learn the speed of the game than to be in the game. IMO.

                              Because he's better than Brock Berlin. Or at least not Linehan's guy.

                              Null is the "QB Armageddon" back. You put him in when both QBs have been permanently incapacitated because direct snapping to Jackson would be sniffed out by an NFL defensive coordinator really quick.

                              If Null goes in, I'm going to treat that as the cue to switch to hard liquor. Also a Benny Hill CD may go in. Because if "former starting QB at middling NCAA Division II school, trained by Ryan Leaf in a spread offense, playing as a rookie in a West Coast offense" doesn't merit a "Yakety Sax" musical accompaniment, I don't know what does.
