  • Cardinals waiting on another former Rams QB?

    by vanram Turf Show


    A.J. Feeley...David Carr, the NFC West is rapidly becoming THE division for backup quarterback excitement. And that brings us to our quarterback related news of the day, this time it's about the St. Louis Rams erstwhile starting QB Marc Bulger.

    As you may recall, since he throttled us on a regular basis, the Arizona Cardinals helped put former Rams QB Kurt Warner back on the map, well, vice versa really. Could they now be interested in bringing in the man who stepped in for Warner in St. Louis, Marc Bulger? It's a distinct possibility says Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic.

    ...I think they [the Cardinals] will be watching closely for when the Rams cut Marc Bulger. Who knows when that will come? The Rams might hang on to Bulger until after the draft, just to see how things shake out.

    Bulger would be an excellent backup for a team like that, and it's real possibility that he could end up starting given the situation there.

    And remember those reports about the Rams possibly interested in bringing back Richie Incognito? Well, you can put away your giant foam "can't hear you" hand. Billy Devaney put the kibosh on that. Here's what the GM told the Globe Democrat:

    Thatís totally bizarre. Look, I love Richie. Everybody here does. Spags does. There is the 90 to 95 percent of Richie that is outstanding. Itís the other 5 or 10 when the dark Richie kicks in and it becomes a problem.
    By vanram Turf Show


    He was here to pick up some clothes or equipment. He was here about a month ago. We told him the door is always open any time he wants to stop by and say hello. But trust me, thatís all it is; just dropping by to say hello. Richie feels the same way. He knows with everything thatís gone on here, itís best for him to be someplace else.

    The lesson? If you visit Rams Park during the offseason, you will have a rumor circulate about you, whether you're just picking up that extra can of Right Guard or taking spare clothes home to get washed.

    A more interesting note from that same article, has Devaney saying that the team is speaking with some other tight ends to fill a very thin spot on the roster. What kind of guys? Established? Unknowns with potential? Stay tuned.

      not sure anyone would want to trade for him with his big contract ...maybe ask him to take a pay cut under the premise that he will then be traded..but i dunno if he would be willing to do that.

        I hate to say it but Arizona is the perfect place for Bulger and there is no doubt in my mind that he can beat out Leinart for the starting job. Unfortunately that will mean the Rams getting torched by yet another former qb who moves on to the Cardinals where there is talent and revives his career.

          I agree but don't you think that Bulger would want to finally get out of Warners shadow,if he goes there the comparasions will never stop and he will again have to prove himself worthy, although I also think it would be a good spot for him.

                      uhh...I dont know what you guys are talking about

                      Cards with Leinart 5-6 wins
                      Cards with Bulger 6-8 wins...probably good enough to make the playoffs but out in the wild card round...

                              Another former rams QB about to shine in a division rivals team :/ Trade him, but please, not to anybody in the West. Move him out to CLE or OAK.

                                Arizona Cardinals: Who will be the starting quarterback?
                                by Kent Somers - Jan. 20, 2011 04:30 PM
                                The Arizona Republic

                                This off-season, the Cardinals will look for a starting quarterback in all the usual places: the draft, free agency, the trade market, between couch cushions.

                                Much depends upon the outcome of labor negotiations. Until a new collective bargaining agreement is reached, players can't be traded and free agents can't be signed. And the draft is three months away.

                                But it's never too early to speculate, or to provide free advice to the Cardinals, who went through four quarterbacks in 2010 while trying to find a suitable replacement for Kurt Warner.

                                Strictly for entertainment purposes, the Heat Index has come up with some early odds on who will be the team's starter in 2011.

                                2 to 1

                                Marc Bulger, free agent: The former Rams starter was the backup in Baltimore last season. The Cardinals showed interest when Bulger was on the market last spring, but already had Derek Anderson under contract. Bulger turns 34 in April and hasn't had a good season since 2006. But he's smart, hasn't been hit in more than a year, and could provide a nice bridge to the future, whoever that might be.

                                8 to 1

                                Kyle Orton, Broncos: He has another year left on his contract, but the Broncos reportedly would let him go for a second-round pick. That should be too steep for the Cardinals, who have the sixth selection in the second round, but maybe that is just the asking price. Orton is smart, has a decent arm and can throw deep. At 28, Orton could give the Cardinals a couple of years to address other needs.

                                15 to 1

                                Kevin Kolb, Eagles: Like other teams, the Cardinals like Kolb's skills and commitment to the game. But the Eagles won't give him away. Starter Michael Vick is a free agent and prone to injuries. Kolb will cost the Eagles just $1.4 million in 2011. There has been speculation that the Eagles would want first- and third-round picks in return for Kolb . If that's the price, the Cardinals likely would pass.

                                35-1

                                John Skelton, Cardinals: He showed promise as a rookie last season, starting the final four games of the season. But it was also obvious why he didn't play earlier. Skelton could use another year or two of seasoning before being expected to contend for the starting job. But if the Cardinals sign, say, a lower-rung free agent and don't draft a quarterback, Skelton could win the job.

                                70-1

                                Auburn's Cam Newton, Arkansas' Ryan Mallett, Missouri's Blaine Gabbert: They appear to be the top rated quarterbacks in the draft, and with the fifth overall pick, the Cardinals should have a shot at any of them. The guess here, however, is that the Cardinals go a different direction in the first round (pass rusher), meaning these three quarterbacks end up elsewhere.

                                80-1...

                                Bulger wins latest round of QB tale

                                ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH
                                09/25/2006

                                GLENDALE, ARIZ. ó So here we are at the end of another chapter written in this on-going Tale of Two Quarterbacks, and once again the agonizing and fateful turns of their football lives leaped out like memorable plot lines from a Charles Dickens novel.

                                If you didn't know it already, here was more proof how the football lives of Marc Bulger and Kurt Warner will be forever linked. It actually seems cruel to watch the way this story continues to unfold. It's uncomfortable to know that whenever they occupy the same space on a football field, ultimately one must suffer in order for the other to succeed.

                                So as the clock clicked down the final seconds of this bizarre, compelling, confusing, tormenting and ultimately entertaining 16-14 Rams victory over the Arizona Cardinals, Bulger and Warner were separated by the width of a football field and the emotional chasm that divides the best of football times from the worst of football times.

                                "Man, you must be livin' right," Gus Frerotte screamed at Bulger, as he leaped on his back, and slapped his suddenly relieved shoulders.

                                Bulger was laughing too, though with the sheepish grin of a man who knew he'd just stumbled in the dark, awkwardly tossed a pile of china plates into the air, then watched as they miraculously settled into perfectly stacked piles. Two minutes earlier, the Rams quarterback had fumbled away the football when he was supposed to be protecting a slim lead. A few seconds earlier, he was standing all alone on the visitor's sideline, and he was mentally scripting an apology to his teammates, trying to come up with the proper words to express the remorse he had for blowing this game.

                                "I had most of it written in my mind," Bulger admitted in the locker room as he stood in front of his locker stall. "I didn't have it all done, but I knew I was going to have to include a couple 'I'm an idiots' in there."

                                Several yards away, Warner glumly stood alone. Now he was the loneliest man under this translucent roof. Now he had no friends. Now everyone walked around him as if he had an invisible force field around him. A few moments earlier, Warner had the ball in his hands. He was about to convert the gift that Bulger presented him into victory.

                                But as Warner got the snap from center Alex Stepanovich, he lurched forward, the ball sailed into the air, then fell to the ground and into the hands of the Rams. He had victory in his hands and then he fumbled the ball away. Bulger had escaped being the goat of the game only because Warner took over about 20 seconds later. Sold-out Cardinals Stadium became deflated the second the ball slipped out of Warner's hands, while the entire Rams sideline spontaneously exploded with relief. The latest chapter was written under the translucent roof of Cardinals Stadium...

                                It seems to be looking that way. I can't speak for everybody here, but it seems a lot of people seem to think that it's looking to be the case. Most of the national experts are picking the Cardinals to be the suprise team of the season. Many are picking them to win the west. They were tough last season and made some big additions in the offseason. I think they are the most improved team besides the Rams. It will be fun to see Bulger vs Warner to decide the division in '05 as well as the Bulger/Warner debate once and for all.

                                It's a merciful ending to disappointing and injury-riddled seasons for both the St. Louis Rams and the Arizona Cardinals.

                                Yet Rams quarterback Marc Bulger said he was looking forward to his team's season-ending matchup against the Cardinals at 3:15 p.m. today at University of Phoenix Stadium.

                                "I am looking to have fun," Bulger said. "It doesn't mean anything as far as playoffs and all that, but anytime you go out there, you enjoy yourself and you remember the times when you weren't on a team, or that people are in hospitals or in different countries or Iraq. I mean, just be thankful."

                                Bulger said he had time to reflect on his blessings as the Rams had a sort of Christmas break with three of the next four days off after their 41-24 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Dec. 20.

                                "You get family in, and they tell you about their problems, so maybe your problems aren't that bad," Bugler said. "I had a friend whose mother had to go into the hospital yesterday with something life-threatening out of the blue. Things can happen. When you are in the day-to-day grind, you don't realize it.

                                "But getting those couple days off, you don't shut down football and think that it is not important anymore, but you kind of do put it into perspective a little bit."

                                With a 3-12 record, the Rams need a win just to tie their 1998 squad for the worst record since the franchise moved to St. Louis in 1995.

                                Rams coach Scott Linehan, who was given a vote of confidence from team President John Shaw a couple of weeks ago, wants to end the season with a win before beginning what figures to be a busy offseason.

                                "You want to finish what you start, and have a good last game regardless," Linehan said. "We're playing a division opponent on the road. It would be nice for us to be able to go there and perform well and go away with a victory."

                                The Cardinals are 7-8 and hoping to post their best record since 1998 and their third nonlosing season since 1984 by finishing at .500.

                                Arizona has dealt with the loss of quarterback Matt Leinart to a season-ending collar bone injury during a 34-31 win over the Rams on Oct. 7 at the Edward Jones Dome and the loss of strong safety Adrian Wilson to a season-ending heel injury a few weeks later.

                                Former Rams quarterback Kurt Warner has assumed a full-time role since Leinart's injury. The Arizona Republic reported this week that Warner could earn as much as $1.5 million in incentive bonuses if he plays well against the Rams.

                                Bulger said he consulted Warner earlier this month when he was deciding whether it was safe for him to play after suffering a concussion.
