  • Question about the game

    The very last possession by the Rams, I noticed too late that Warner was on the sidelines. Who was QB for the running out of the clock? Martin or Bulger?

      When we were leading 28-0 I was kind of surprised that Martz didnt let Martin take some snaps and let Canidate get some more carries.The MNF anonuncers kept harping on the freak injury factor,but Detroit wasnt even hitting on defense,so I wasnt worried about that.I just thought it would have been a good time to give Martin some work.Oh well,we won!Thats the bottom line.

        noticed it was #12 that took the last few snaps to run out the clock .... after checking .... it was definately Martin
        "Life should NOT be a journey to the grave intending on arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, martini in hand, body thoroughly used up, worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"

          Martin was awesome when he was in there, they way he kneeled was so, so, beautiful :p

          wtf was warner and faulk and the rest in there. there was one drive where they let trung carry the ball on the drive, then brought faulk in to score the td i thought. trung played well while he was in there though.

          Somebody, probably miller, said martin hadn't even taken a snap in practice, more than likely bogus, but you gotta wonder if martz is still lacking the confidence to put martin in yet.

            I heard that too, DJ, about Martin not taking snaps in practice. Didn't sound right. They want him to be ready, right?

            Please tell me it isn't ego keeping these guys in the game. Wanting to tweek their stats? That was Ernie Conwell that made the TD after Trung played. Faulk was in on the next series for the next TD. Hmm. If they say "play me", I don't think Martz would use common sense and keep them out.

              regards the QB and snaps

              This is normal for the Rams the last 3 years. The starting QB takes all the snaps in training.

              The backup plays the scout team. Its always been Martz's way, and it never failed the last 2 years so why should it now?

              I know you are getting edgy about Warner getting hurt but Martin is OK.

              I to wondered why Martz left them in but He himself said he wanted to preserve the shutout and wanted no mistakes. He thought it was important for the D to get the shut out mentaly so I am cool with that.

                I also read Martz's comments about preserving the shutout and I am cool with that also.I guess I would just like to see Martin throw the ball a couple of times and see what he is capable of.Hopefully,he wont even be needed.

                GO RAMS! STAY FOCUSED! WIN!

                  Okay, preserving the shut out, esp. for the D's sake, does make sense. Thanks Dez.

                    Do people still think jamie martin stinks?
                    by general counsel
                    Another serviceable game from martin. Great great thrown on the bomb to curtis. Dont know what happened on the int to looker, he was open cant tell if it was the throw or looker. The int in the end zone was a fantastic play by the db.

                    As backups go, he isnt so bad. I think the expectations on this board for backups in the cap era are often misplaced. How did garcia look today as a backup to the lions fans?

                    Here is what i know about martin. 2-0.

                    As the Rams embarked on this season, the expectations for the offense were as high as they had been in years. At the top of the list of things expected to make the offense better was the continued development of quarterback Marc Bulger.

                    Bulger finished 2004 on a strong note and had made his move to the top tier of quarterbacks in the league. With that, even his teammates began to expect big things from their signal caller.

                    “I came into the year thinking that 10 had a chance to be MVP of the league,” defensive lineman Tyoka Jackson said. “I believe that. He has been hurt a couple times and that is killer to our team. You don’t like to go in games without all of your guns. We need him, but unfortunately he won’t be there. So we have to ride with what we got.”

                    What the Rams have is backup Jamie Martin. After Bulger suffered an aggravation of the sprained AC joint in his shoulder against Arizona on Sunday, Martin was left to take over for Bulger for the second time this season.

                    When Bulger suffered the injury the first time in the team’s loss to Indianapolis on Oct. 17, Martin came in and struggled at times. But, with Bulger out for the following two games against New Orleans and Jacksonville, Martin answered the call. In fact, Martin led the Rams to a pair of victories in those games to get them back to .500 going into the bye week.

                    Make no mistake, Martin didn’t exactly carry the Rams to wins in those games, but as a backup, he isn’t expected to.

                    “I have come to expect good things from Jamie,” receiver Torry Holt said. “He’s been here before; he’s been in this situation before. We rolled with Jamie the last two games before we went into the bye week. He has proven that we can win with Jamie. We are OK, we are fine with Jamie. We are fortunate enough to have a guy that understands the system.”

                    Martin’s numbers weren’t eye popping like some that Bulger has posted, but he did enough in the passing game to keep the Jaguars and Saints honest, opening things up for a pair of big games from running back Steven Jackson.

                    Against New Orleans, Martin was 18-of-29 for 198 yards. He had no touchdown passes, but didn’t throw an interception, either. A week later against the Jaguars, Martin had some more successes, but also a few more mistakes. In that game, he was 13-of-21 for 200 yards with two touchdowns and three interceptions. One of the touchdowns, though, was an 83-yard strike to Kevin Curtis.

                    “This is my career,” Martin said. “I’m a career backup to be ready in these situations. Having those two games earlier in the year under my belt really helps to kind of calm down this week and know what to expect and hopefully have some good games.”

                    One advantage Martin will have in this stint as the starter is a full cadre...
