  • Bulger will miss at least two more weeks...

    By Mike Florio...

    The St. Louis Rams have announced on their Twitter page that quarterback Marc "Big Bulge" Bulger will miss at least two more weeks as he recovers from a broken leg.

    And although backup Kyle Boller is listed as probable (i.e., virtually certain to play) with a thigh inury, the Rams have disclosed that Boller's practice reps were reduced on Thursday and Friday (he was listed as being a limited participant from Wednesday through Sunday) and that Keith Null "could play and might even start" on Sunday at Tennessee.

    With only four games left in the season, there's a chance Bulger won't return in 2009, and that he won't be a Ram in 2010.


    Ok I added the nickname

    If Keith starts, I wish him the best of luck.

        A note to Big Bulge:

        Please sit out the rest of the season and heal up as much as possible. We need the #1 pick.

          Lol that's the point. We have so much bad news all the time for this team, it was something funny I thought I'd add in there.

                i hope Bulger sits out for these last three games. Give Null some experiance, plus, Bulger didn't really show he deserves to be in there. Even if he does deserve to be there, I still want to see Null because I want him to be somewhat prepared if we are forced to use him next season.

                  Bulger Not Ready To Discuss Future

                  Bulger not ready to discuss future
                  BY JIM THOMAS
                  ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH

                  "Sure," Marc Bulger said, when asked if he'd like to be back with the Rams next season.

                  But that's as far as he cared to discuss that topic Friday, in his first comments since suffering a fractured shin bone in his left leg against Arizona.

                  "I don't even want to talk about that," Bulger said. "We're going to have plenty of time in the offseason to make those decisions around here. But we've got a quarter — or a third — of the season to go, and I don't want to be a distraction in any way that way."

                  The original prognosis was that Bulger would be sidelined for three to six weeks with the injury, which will not require surgery. With only six games to play, including Sunday's contest with Seattle at the Edward Jones Dome, there's no guarantee that Bulger will be healthy enough to play again in 2009. And that in turn prompted speculation that he may have taken his last snap at quarterback as a St. Louis Ram.
                  "There's been a lot of numbers thrown out there on how long it's going to be (before the injury heals)," Bulger said. "It's been five days, I think, since I've done it. Only time will tell how long it's going to be."

                  Bulger said it might be another week or so before he has a better idea if he'll be able to play in '09.

                  "I'm just going to keep rehabbing — getting bone stem (treatment) and ice," Bulger said. "There's really not much you can do for it. But I'd love to come back and play a couple games."

                  Bulger hobbled into the locker room on one crutch Friday afternoon to meet with reporters. He hasn't been out on the practice field all week because the Rams' medical staff wants him off his feet for a while.

                  "I think the doctor said the first 10 days is important to keep any weight off of it, since it is a weight-bearing bone, to help the healing process," Bulger said.

                  But Bulger made every meeting this week and will continue to do so throughout the rehab and healing process.

                  "I'll still be in all the meetings, doing whatever I can to help Kyle (Boller)," Bulger said. "But he's been there, done that, so it's more I think to help Keith (Null) along. Hopefully, we don't have to use (Null), but I'll try to get him a little bit more ready."

                  Bulger may have originally suffered the injury two Sundays ago against New Orleans. He remembers coming out of that game with some soreness in the left knee area, but no real swelling.

                  "It wasn't anything visible," Bulger said. "We checked it out. You have sore knees every week, and I think when you check knees that's all you're looking for is ligaments. I never even thought in a million years that it could possibly...

                  Bulger has had injured ribs for a few weeks

                  11/27 12:57 Rams: Bulger reveals rib injury
                  The News
                  Rams quarterback Marc Bulger left Sunday's win over the ***** for three plays just before halftime, with the given diagnosis being that he had the wind knocked out of him. Following the game, however, Bulger revealed that it was a bit more serious. "I've had a bruised rib," Bulger told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "And he [***** defensive end Bryant Young] got me right on the spot. So it pretty much knocked the wind out of me, and I couldn't breathe. I couldn't get up."

                  Our View
                  Bulger added that he has been taking pain-killing shots for "three or four weeks in a row now" in order to play through the rib injury. While we admire his courage, we must also point out that Bulger's production has tailed off dramatically over the past month. Perhaps there's a correlation?

                  Bulger shouldn't play for the rest of the year.
                  by Varg6
                  Guys, we aren't going to the Superbowl.

                  This guy has suffered enough, and I really feel for the guy. I think as a well-respected player, he deserves to (at the least, have the option) sit out the rest of the year and get healthy for next year. I have an inkling that we aren't going to be getting rid of him, because regardless of drafting the QB of the future or not, Spags will more than likely want Bulger to mentor him.

                  Your thoughts, my brothers and sisters?

                  Round Two: The Future Of Marc Bulger

                  The future of Marc Bulger
                  By Roger Hensley

                  THE WATERCOOLER

                  QUESTION: There’s been much speculation on the future of Rams’ QB Marc Bulger: Will he retire? Be cut? Be traded? Or will he remain as the Rams QB for another season as a young QB is mentored. Do you believe Bulger will be under center for the Rams when they open next season?

                  JIM THOMAS
                  I still think it’s better than 50-50 that Bulger will not be back. And if he’s traded to a non-contending team he may pull a Jake Plummer and just retire. But in order to dispose of Bulger, the Rams need two quarterbacks — a veteran and a draft pick. How they fare on those two fronts over the next three months might have a lot to do with whether Bulger returns to St. Louis in 2010.

                  BERNIE MIKLASZ
                  I can’t say ‘Impossible’ but I doubt very much that we’ll see him QB the Rams in 2010. Bulger has taken a brutal beating on this job over the years and cannot stay healthy. The team is 5-31 with him as a starting quarterback over the last three seasons — though certainly there is plenty of blame to go around for that hideous record, and Bulger is only one piece of the team. But his play has declined, and his injury issues will only create more instability at a crucial position. Nothing personal, but at this point it is just best for Bulger and the Rams to move on.

                  BILL COATS
                  My guess is that he’ll be with the Rams next season, in some capacity. And that could well be as the No. 1 quarterback. What’s the alternative? There doesn’t appear to be a “franchise quarterback” available in the draft or free agency, and a trade would cost the Rams dearly as they try to rebuild in several areas. Neither Kyle Boller, who almost surely won’t be back anyway, nor rookie Keith Null showed that they are a better option than Bulger at this point.

                  JEFF GORDON
                  I believe Marc would be a better stopgap quarterback than almost any veteran the Rams could round up without sacrificing assets. But . . . given all that Marc and the team has been through the past three years, I can understand why the Rams would want to do something different just to do something different. One by one, veterans who have failed have moved on. Why could Marc be the one exception to that trend?
